    Dear Laurie,

    I recieved your novel Ignited on Netgalley a while ago to read and review. Unfortunately, I didn’t realise that it was the second book in the Unclaimed series. Would I be somehow able to receive an ARC or free copy of Unclaimed so that I may be able to read Ignited? I’m really eager to read and review.
    If you’d like to check out some of my reviews, please feel free to visit my website! 🙂

    Omg when is the next book coming? So good! Thank you!

      Great question, Crystal! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the series. I’m finishing up a few scenes in book 3 and then I will begin publishing it. Once I know the release date, I will share it here and on my other sites 🙂

      Thanks and happy reading,

    I just finished Unclaimed (I read about 350 pages yesterday in order to finish) and I loved it! I told my friend she needed to read it because I think she would really enjoy it! Another thing I found interesting was the setting for the book. It takes place in Mankato, which is about 40 miles from where I live. Many books I’ve read take place in big cities and states I’m not familiar with, but it was cool to read a book so close to home! Overall, I really enjoyed the book and hopefully I will be able to get the second book soon!

      Hi Kallie,
      I’m thrilled that you enjoyed Unclaimed. Since it’s the first story I published, and the one that started this journey, it will always be very dear to me. Thank you very much for recommending the book to your friend; that’s very kind of you. Mankato is a wonderful town. I spent many years running and seeking solitude at the parks Maddy frequents. And I still love eating at Grizzlys, I mean Kodiaks 😉

    I bought Unclaimed because it looked like a good book. As I started reading it I was completely thrown off when the Maddy starts talking about Mankato. I had no idea when I bought the book! I live just south of Mankato! I super excited to start book 2 and I’m anxiously awaiting book 3!

    I only meant to read Unclaimed as a fun book for my enriched english class and unintentionally fell in love the series!! We were supposed to pace ourselves and I devoured both book in 5 days. For a teenager that’s caught up in academics, sports, and friends I figured that was crazy for myself! On top of it, it took place in Mankato, which is where I live! Kind of wondering if the school is Mankato West too? 😉 Need to know when the third book is coming because I really don’t want to start another book until I can finish the third book. Been waiting all summer :)) Please let me know!

      I’m thrilled to hear you’re loving the series so far! Five days?!? That’s incredible! I hope you’re all caught up on sleep now 😉

      I grew up in Mankato too and yes, West is Maddy’s school. I graduated from there in 2002.
      The third book, unfortunately, will not be out this summer. I am still fussing over the ending. As soon as I know the release date, I will happily share.

      Enjoy the last few weeks of summer and happy reading,

    Laurie, I met you and purchased Unclaimed at a Meet the Author luncheon at Gustavus last year. I just now picked up the signed copy to read and I have to admit I’m very impressed with the book. I love the characters and you plot is so unusual. I am reading it as fast as I can because I plan to purchase Ignited next time I’m in Mankato. You have started a great series. Thanks!

      Hello Deloris,
      That was such a fun event! I’m glad to hear you are enjoying the book so far. I love writing it and I will be sad once the series ends. Thankfully we’re still several books away from that moment 😉

    Hi Laurie! We met Two years ago when you came in for Jason WIllis’s English Composition Class and talked about your career as an author and you and I talked about your series, I went to our Media Center and I checked Unclaimed out Straight Away! I loved both Unclaimed and Ignited, and I can’t wait for book three! Blessed Be and Good Luck!
