Carrie Butler is an award-winning author and the owner of Forward Authority full-service studio—not to mention an inbound-certified marketer with a penchant for superhero socks and Firefly. Time away from her desk is spent playing with her rescue pup, yelling at the TV during hockey season, and indulging in target-based recreation. Otherwise, you’re likely to find her glued to her chair, discovering new ways to share her daydreams...

The Mark of Nexus series has appeared on Amazon bestselling, top-rated, and hot new release lists in various genres. It has also been mentioned in publications like USA Today and Writing New Adult Fiction—a how-to from Writer’s Digest.

There was actually an in-between novel (Cole's POV) released about seven months ago. If you haven't read HONESTY (Mark of Nexus #2.5) yet, I definitely recommend checking it out. It adds a whole new dimension to his character. :)

As for the third book, it's coming along slowly but surely! I had to take a step back for a few months—a.k.a I took on as many design clients as humanly possible to catch up on bills—but I'm back on the project now. I'm aiming for late 2014/early 2014.

Thanks so much for your question!(less)

Thank you for the kind words. I really appreciate it. <3 As a matter of fact, I just finished a disaster / romantic adventure novel that should be coming out later this year! I have a cover reveal slated for the 17th. :D(less)

Hey, guys. Long time no blog. I'd love to say it's because I've been working at my former breakneck speeds, juggling a dozen different projects, but the truth is I've struggled to face you. I don't have anything worth sharing these days. It's been months since I even opened one of my WIPs.I know....

“Rena?” I looked up as a figure emerged from the white void of snowfall. The snow dusted his broad shoulders as he took long, measured strides toward me, his black coat flapping in the wind.

As he neared, I made out his startled features. “Wallace?”

His gaze burned with indiscernible emotion. “Are you hugging the lamp post?”

“Well, why not just snap my damn olive branch and beat me with it? I was only trying to help.”

“I mean, that was the code, wasn’t it? Single girls and taken guys weren’t allowed to be friends. The leash always got in the way.”

“Ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. Know what the first rule of flying is? Well I s'pose you do, since you already know what I'm 'bout to say.

I do. But I like to hear you say it.

Love. Can know all the math in the 'verse but take a boat in the air that you don't love? She'll shake you off just as sure as a turn in the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down...tell you she's hurtin' 'fore she keens...makes her a home.”
Joss Whedon

“The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.”
Flannery O'Connor

“Maybe that was why another part of me--a very small part--had wanted to kiss Wallace then. Both sides of his mouth, between his brows, and every other place those stupid worry lines marred his expression. That part of me had wanted to hold him tight and give him the comfort I knew he couldn’t ask for.

But that part terrified me the most.”
Carrie Butler, Strength

“Cole radiated that cool, bad boy sort of confidence—the kind that left most women flustered and ready.”
