NIL REMEMBERED is realllllllll!

Happy summer, #NILtribe!

I’m so excited to announce the release of NIL REMEMBERED!

What, you say? Another Nil story, you say? YES!:)

Before I get into details...here’s the cover:


Isn’t it cool? Does the cover give you a clue?

So here’s the deal: In NIL UNLOCKED, Skye’s dad give her a journal. It’s handwritten, full of doodles in the margins, and it belonged to Skye’s uncle who went to Nil in the 1980’s. This same journal pushes Skye to believe that Nil is a real place, that Nil really exists. And, it leads her to find vital clues in both NIL UNLOCKED and NIL ON FIRE...clues that turns into critical answers.:)

And now, for the first time, we’re publishing the journal in its entirely--plus illustrations!!!!

Here’s the official synopsis:

My name is Scott Bracken, and this is my journal. 
Scott Bracken has been home for 28 days, but nothing is the same. A month ago, he escaped from Nil, an island of wonder, beauty, and incredible danger. Now, back in his old life, no one believes Scott's story. To deal with his present, Scott must relive his past—whether he wants to or not. 
Introduced to readers in Nil Unlocked, here, for the first time, is Scott's journal in its entirety. Delve deeper into the world of Nil—before Charley and Thad, before Skye and Rives—and discover the truth.

Ahhhh! I’m SO excited!

Also, I’m so honored to have Jay C. Spencer as my illustrator on NIL REMEMBERED. Jay is a massively talented artist who lives in Canada, and he was one of my crit partners for NIL. His input was invaluable in making Thad authentic, and to have the chance to work with him on NIL REMEMBERED was incredible. I couldn’t have brought Scott’s experience to life without him. So thank you Spence!:)

And.... here’s the super cool part:

NIL REMEMBERED is FREE! 

Right now, NIL REMEMBERED is free to download from any authorized, legal, ebook retailer.:) So go! Enjoy! Happy reading!

Also,  keep an eye on my Wattpad account. I’m posting lots of Nil series extras in the coming weeks. Deleted scenes, excerpts, plus a new Thad novella coming soon! Here’s the link: https://www.wattpad.com/user/LSMatson

Anniversary Post...and NIL ON FIRE COUNTDOWN!

ONE DAY UNTIL NIL ON FIRE IS IN YOUR HANDS!!!:) Ahhhhh!

Having a May 31 release date is really cool for me, because I think (yes I'm totally biased and completely unreliable lol) that the Nil series is a perfect summer read. So grab you favorite beach towel, an umbrella if you like, a cool glass of water, and head down to the sand...

and tomorrow you can take NIL ON FIRE with you!:)

WOOHOO!

(Note: Today is the last day to enter the NIL ON FIRE preorder contest. Details are here.)

Overall, this weekend has been made of awesome. It's Memorial Day Weekend, a weekend that is full of feels for me, because 21 years ago this weekend I got married to the love of my life!

Here's us, 21 years ago:

babies!:)

And us celebrating just last year:


Steve has been my rock and biggest fan when I started writing, and he still is.:) I wouldn't have the Nil trilogy without him. He's my best friend, lover, partner in every awesome adventure, and the best dad ever to our four sons. Life is richer when you love the people you're traveling with!:)

And...now? This weekend will always mark the end of the Nil series for me! Because tomorrow, THE FIRE IS HERE!

NIL ON FIRE, the last book in the Nil trilogy, releases tomorrow!

This week's teaser:


So happy almost release day for the #NILtribe, happy anniversary to my hubby, and happy almost summer to everyone!:)

One day until the Nil series is complete. Who's ready?:)

Friday Five

Hi y'all! I haven't done a Friday Five in a while, so why not today?:)

Let's do it! Here we go...


#5. Last five books I've read and loved:


The Winner's Kiss by Marie Rutkowsi

Riders by Veronica Rossi
Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
The Living by Matt De La Pena
Frozen Tides, by Morgan Rhodes


#4. Next five books on my TBR List (in no particular order):


The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye

A Court of Mist & Fury by Sarah J. Mass
Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes
Need by Joelle Charbonneau
Wink, Poppy, Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke

Which should I read first?


#3. Five Cool Things You Might Not Know About The Nil series:


The Nil series has been translated into multiple languages, and Nil just sold to Columbia! Nil Unlocked recently released in Turkey...with more countries to follow.

Nil began in Hawaii--that's where the idea for Nil was born. See this post for more scoop.



NIL UNLOCKED incorporates some American history and science that is absolutely true. As for how it factors into the Nil world...well, I MADE THAT UP.;)

At the the end of NIL UNLOCKED, Skye has not let Nil go. OR IS IT THE OTHER WAY AROUND? Or is it both? Nil on Fire holds the answer....

I have a super cool announcement coming soon about Skye's uncle's journal... Stay tuned!



#2. Five Cool Things You Might Not Know About NIL ON FIRE:


In NIL ON FIRE, three of the four main characters return to Nil. NO  I CAN'T TELL YOU WHICH ONES. You have to read the book.:;)

The books starts with Paulo, picking up right where NIL UNLOCKED lefts off.

There are three points of view...and one of them belongs to Nil.

You meet new characters from Australia, Columbia, America, and more. Don't get attached... *spoiler alert* many of them die. BECAUSE IT'S NIL AND NIL ISN'T HAPPY.

NIL ON FIRE ends the series.


#1. Five Things I'm Stoked About for May:

Um, DUH. NIL ON FIRE!!!

NIL ON FIRE RELEASES IN 25 days!!!


IKR?! Can. Not. WAIT!

Because I'm so excited, I'm going to count the release of NOF as all five, because in my mind, it's five kinds of awesome.:) Don't forget to enter the pre-order contest to win cool stuff!

25 days!!!!!


Now, I'll leave you with this week's NOF teaser...




Happy Friday!
