To celebrate the launch of Montrose Paranormal Academy, Book 4: The Seer's Army ...
I'm having a 99 CENT SALE on Book 1: The Nexis Secret!
One day ONLY!
As an added bonus, I'm running a week-long test of a brand new look for the cover of Book 1. Check it out above and tell me what you think!
My author friends suggested that the colors should be brighter, the magic could be highlighted ...
And that Lucy should be wearing a plaid skirt! (Or tartan skirt, as my friend from Scotland says.) All of these little tweaks or updates to the cover are meant to signal to the readers ...
"HEY, THIS IS AN ACADEMY BOOK!"
That was more of a scream, wasn't it? Does the new cover SCREAM academy book to you? I'd love to read your comments below.
I'm testing this shiny new cover out this week to see if it bumps sales up. We'll see how it goes!

The only thing that can make this day any better is if you download your copy of Montrose Paranormal Academy, Book 4: The Seer's Army today!
Lucky for you, this is my shortest book yet.
My goal was to cut down my word count to help the pacing of this book. I ended up cutting 20,000 words from my average word count for the series!!
Obviously, I was a little worried that this drastic cut would lead to a poor story...
But my editor thought the pacing was great!
She also loved the maturity I added to Lucy's personality, saying she appreciated how our heroine's voice changed in this book.
My editor called the new-and-improved Lucy "more in control with a bit more sass and a clip to her step."
Sound like a fun change?
There are a few more fun changes in Book 4.
I give Will some cool new Interpreter powers.
And The Seer's Army travels to some exciting cities in Eastern Europe.
But I won't give away any spoilers!!
Even though this story takes place outside of Montrose Paranormal Academy, you'll love reading about all the exciting Eastern European destinations as Lucy flees the Three Societies with her brother and her boyfriend...
And creates The Seer's Army!
Are you ready to dive into Book 4?
>>>Check out Montrose Paranormal Academy, Book 4: The Seer's Army<<<
I'm on a quest with my brother and my boyfriend to destroy the last two remaining rubies. Who will join the Seer's Army?
I guess there are a few perks to going off-the-grid in a rogue operation:
Did I mention that you'll probably be running for your life?
What can I say? The Seer's Army is only for the brave, the dedicated, and the truly insane.
Sign up at your own risk.
Sounds exciting, right?
I had SO MUCH FUN creating cool new powers for Will.
I also did some fun and tasty research on all of the exciting Eastern European destinations.
(Check out my Location Scouting boards on Pinterest for sights and tastes of each city.)
Hopefully, you'll love this book as much as the first three books in the series!
Thank you SO MUCH for being a faithful reader.
Without you, none of this would be possible!!! (Seriously.)
Barbara Hartzler is the debut author of The Nexis Secret—the story a girl with a gift to see the unseen world of angels. And the two secret societies vying for The Seer's allegiance. The Nexis Secret is inspired by Barbara’s college experiences and peppered with anecdotes from her teen missions trip to New York City. She’s always wanted to write, not necessarily about angels, but the idea was too good to pass up. As a former barista and graphic designer, she loves all things sparkly and purple and is always jonesing for a good cup of joe.
