Kari's Kave: Re-Launching Samantha Granger at Last!

I am soooooo excited!

My teen superhero series formerly known as THE SAMANTHA GRANGER EXPERIMENT is bing re-launched!

The series will now be called DIGITAL DIVA with books one, two and three called: TALK TO THE HAND, RISE OF THE PHENOTEENS, and LET FREEDOM RING.

This series is near and dear to my heart because it is the first book I ever sold. Now that I have my rights back, I am thrilled to announce book one: TALK TO THE HAND (formerly known as FUSED) is available on Kindle. Stay tuned because it will be out on the Nook and then in print soon.

Here is the kindle link.

Book two RISE OF THE PHENOTEENS no one has read yet. That one will come out next week. Book three LET FREEDOM RING will take a bit longer, as I have to actually write it :-)

I absolutely love the titles and covers for this series.

Here is a reminder of what these books are about:

A Digital Diva superhero with cell phone technology is just a phone call away and ready to conquer the world...or at least the 8th grade!

When Samantha Granger touches a meteor while talking on her cell phone, her life is changed forever: her body now has all the capabilities of her phone (GPS, phone, text, camera). She calls herself a "Digital Diva" as she rushes to answer emergency calls. But will her identity be discovered when sparks fly (literally!) between her and Trevor, her dreamy crush? Samantha has to get a handle on her abilities and quick, because when Sam gets kidnapped and the entire town is in danger, she is the only one who can save them.

RISE OF THE PHENOTEENS - Samantha Granger has finally come to terms with being different. The only way to keep her situation under control is to stay far away from Trevor Hamilton or risk bringing Digital Diva out of retirement. She gets her wish when the government gets involved. They've discovered Sam's identity an threaten to expose her if she doesn't cooperate. She's whisked off to Washington DC to a special school for gifted students called IPR, where she discovers she's not alone. Only, when a mole threatens their very existence, it's up to Sam and her fellow Phenoteens to save themselves.

LET FREEDOM RING - Samantha Granger is finally going home. After attending IPR and defeating the mole, Sam has had enough. The government realizes even they can't keep the Phenoteens safe, so they set them free. Only, freedom isn't really free if there are strings. The government assigns a mentor to each of the teens and equips them with a special beeper. Dating Trevor will have to wait once more as a series of natural disasters start happening all over the world, but what if they have nothing to do with global warming and aren't exactly "natural?" The Phenoteens must band together once more to save the world this time.

Enjoy! And please let me know if you like the book by leaving a review on Amazon. These are such new and exciting times we live in :-)

What exciting new ventures are you all entering into?

Taryn Browning said...

Yay, Kari! I'm so excited for you! Awesome news and I love the new covers and titles! Way to go, girl :)

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Thanks Taryn! When all is said and done, I will have 3 romances and 3 tween stories up for self-pub, as well as my traditional pubbed books!


It might have taken me 14 years to sell, but I'm finally making up for lost time :-)

Love these times we live in.

Congratulations, Kari. I love the new covers. Good luck.

Donna Cummings said...

Congrats, Kari! These look great. :) I'm glad they're getting a second chance.

Cassy Pickard said...

Kari, you are on a roll!! These are great great covers. I love them. I can't wait to hear about the numbers!

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Thanks guys! I am just so thrilled with these covers, and the fact that this series will live on :-)

Tiffinie Helmer said...

So excited for you! And the covers rock! You did a much better job with the covers and titles than the publisher it was with. Teens and adults are going to yank them off the cyber shelves.

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Thaks Kris, Donna and Cassy.

Awww, thanks Tiffini! I love these covers. Definitely different, but sooooo much better.

Lindsay said...

Congrats on getting the rights back. The covers are super.

Patti Mann said...

Congratulations, Kari. The covers look so cool, I want to read the stories.

Liz Lipperman said...

Love the new covers, Kari. If book 2 is anything like book 2, yahoo! I loved it. And you;re right. This is a great time to be an author.

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Thanks Patti and Liz! I loved book one, but book two is even bigger and better! Can't wait for that one to go up. Soon!!!

Suzanne Lilly said...

This sounds like such a fun series. A living cell phone? What gets cooler than that. I'm glad you've re-released them.

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Thanks Suzanne! I had a blast writing these.
