Giddyup Lane 1I thought I would take a few minutes to share some updates as well as bring you up to speed regarding a few new projects.

Revenge of the Viper Update:
I’m happy to report Haven: Revenge of the Viper is doing quite well, so thank you to all the Haven fans for your continued support. You’re the BEST!




Smash -Book 2 -E-BOOK - BEST SELLERRevenge of the Viper Review:
The reviews are starting to roll in and I wanted to share few of them with you:

“It has been a long time since I stayed up most of the night reading a book. I did last night. I was just going to finish the chapter and then the battle began. I was caught up breathlessly fighting with Alisa protecting her children. I had tears of grief with Sam’s fragile sense of honor. I laughed at the dry sense of humor of Vallen. Demetrius became my protector. Let me not forget Travis’s ability to diffuse any tense moment with his off-handed remarks. And then, there will be Book #3: Haven: Elixir of Life; I cannot wait.

D.C. Akers is a master of suspense. His ability to describe the characters and battle scenes is so realistic; I can see them as if I were watching a video. I was riveted to the written word and scenes before me.” – Linda Skinner

“I couldn’t wait to read this book and it was everything I thought it would be and more. I cried, laughed and thought this is cool magic. Wish I could be them and can’t wait to see what happens next with the kids lives, seeing they are changed forever. – Nancy Reyes

This installment of the Haven Series is a really quick, well written, and exciting read! There are edge-of-your-seat fight scenes, wicked cool magic, and emotions through the roof … all written engagingly and amazingly. The Vipers are written terrifyingly well, in that they are actually nightmares brought to life. The characters are very relatable in their reactions and I love all of the references to Star Wars, Star Trek, and Disney. With new questions brought up in the plot, I can hardly wait to read what happens next!” – Ingrid M

New Audiobook:
Production started a week ago for two new audiobooks, Haven: Revenge of the Viper and the Haven Series Collection. Narrator Lauren Harris will be returning to the project and she will have her work cut out for her as Revenge of the Viper calls for numerous dialects covering multiple nationalities. I can’t wait to get a sample! You can check out a sample of her work here with Haven: A Stranger Magic.

We are in the final stages of the new website so I hope to have that wrapped up by April 1st.

Like many who enjoy the fantasy genre, Akers started reading it as an adolescent. He was fascinated with Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and Bram Stoker's Dracula. He currently enjoys reading works by Dean Koontz, Heather Brewer, J.K. Rowling, and Rick Riordan. Akers enjoys creating a fantasy world with compelling storylines, while injecting humor and a touch of drama into the action as he did with his first book Terra Vonnel and the Skulls of Aries, which has received rave reviews. "I start every story with this thought: Where can I take my audience now? To me it's about the journey, the escape into a world filled with the fantastic and the unexpected. There is nothing like an adventure that takes you further from reality with every turn of the page." D.C. Akers was born in Texas and after spending several years working in accounting, Akers began to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a writer.
