Today is the official release day for SOUND (THE DELTA GIRLS #2)! :)
This is the 2nd of my 5 book series. It is a stand-alone story with romance, mystery, suspense, and of course the paranormal, but also continues the overall mystery from book 1 (SIGHT), so if you haven’t read the first yet, the details are HERE.
SOUND is told from Serena’s point of view. She can hear the future! And not only that, she starts to hear voices from spirits that are haunting the house that the boy she likes lives in.
Here is the book description:
Five extraordinary sisters discover that they each have a unique talent, an extra-sensory perception that enables them to see what others can’t. It makes them incredible, it puts them in danger, and it brings them closer to learning the secrets that have haunted them their entire lives. These are the Delta Girls.
Serena and her sisters read a private letter their father wrote to their mother, revealing a clue about his disappearance that they never knew about before. But as they struggle to gain further insight through their sensory visions, trying to solve the mystery continues to prove elusive.
The Delta Girls try to move on, balancing their supernatural abilities with the daily trials of being teenagers. Studious Serena teams with the classroom outcast, Lara, and her charming brother, Damon, for a school science project. They end up studying more than they bargained for, though, when strange noises come from rooms in Lara and Damon’s house. There are voices, but only Serena, with her special powers, can hear them. This is until the trio experiment with Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) and are able to record and hear them on the computer.
Bringing in her extraordinary sisters to help, Serena must figure out who the voices belong to— and what they want—if she is to have a chance at stopping an impending tragedy before it’s too late.
SOUND is published by Diversion Books and is now available in both print and ebook from all online retailers, and can be purchased or ordered from physical bookstores as well.
- FREE & fast international shipping from Book Depository! (all 5 books also available to order/preorder)
- Diversion Books
- Amazon US / Amazon AUS / Amazon UK

You can also add SOUND to Goodreads HERE.
I hope you’ll enjoy the 2nd book in The Delta Girls series! Book 3 (SCENT) is releasing in January 2016.

P.S. – For info on the first book in the series, SIGHT, click here.
Thanks to everyone who’s congratulated me on the launch of the first book in my Delta Girls series, SIGHT! If you missed the release day post with all the info & links and photo with my big goofy grin, here it is.
There’s currently a blog tour happening with reviews and posts and giveaways, thanks to tour organiser Me Myshelf And I, and one of the posts is: 10 Random Things About Juliet. So if you’d like to know some slightly weird and random tidbits, head on over to Taking It One Book At A Time! I had a lot of fun writing it. I can’t believe I used the phrase ‘bad grandma’ in there somewhere, not to mention something about dancing in the kitchen and something to do with rapping, which, just so you know, I will not do. Ever.
And there is also an awesome 5/5 review over there for SIGHT. Thanks to Jessica for reading the book and sharing her thoughts! :)

It’s here! The day I’ve been waiting for. Today I held my own book in my hands for the first time.
Seeing something you’ve created come to life is so rewarding, and makes all the long writing hours worthwhile!
SIGHT, the first book in THE DELTA GIRLS series is now available in paperback, ebook, and audio with Diversion Books! :)
It’s available from all online ebook retailers, and you can also get a paperback copy from stores in the US or you can order over the counter at bookstores in Australia, or online.
Here are some links to get your copy (some stores may be waiting on more stock):
>> Paperback copies:
Book Depository (free worldwide shipping)
Or order from your local bookstore: ask for SIGHT by Juliet Madison.
>> Ebook copies:
Diversion (all other links)
>> Audio (available through Audible.com, Amazon, and iTunes):
Here is what the book is about:
“I spent my birthday fast asleep. In a coma to be exact.”
When Savannah wakes up after two months in the hospital, she sees a whole lot more than expected, things that could put those close to her at risk.
The five Delcarta sisters have never believed in the paranormal, not like their woo-woo mother. Instead they believe in the power of sisterhood, of romance, and rebuilding their lives after their father’s mysterious disappearance nine years earlier. Starting anew in the small town of Iris Harbor, they see potential in all.
But Savannah’s awakening after having surgery on a life-threatening aneurysm brings a unique ability to the Delcarta sisters–together, each can predict the future with one of the five senses. And Savannah has the gift of sight.
A serial arsonist has been terrorizing the tight-knit community, and the Delcarta sisters have their suspicions on who could be to blame, including a boy who starts as an adversary to Savannah and then very quickly becomes her whole world. Investigating these crimes, trying to stop them before the next flame is sparked will call upon Savannah to use her newfound abilities with the help of her sisters, and will put each of their lives in danger.
This stunning new paranormal series blends the sweetest of romances with breathless suspense, and introduces five young women who share a haunted past, an extraordinary gift, and an uncertain future.
I hope you enjoy SIGHT!

P.S – For those with teen readers, the book is suitable for ages 13 and up.
If you’re in the book industry or are a fan of colouring books or art for relaxation and creativity, and even if you aren’t, you may have noticed that colouring books for adults are taking over the bestsellers lists! More and more are popping up as people discover (or rediscover) the joy of getting out coloured pencils, markers, and pens and trying to stay between the lines!
Johanna Basford’s intricately illustrated books, Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest in particular have done very well, Secret Garden having sold well over one million copies since its release. You can read more about her success in this article on the NY Times.
I have both these beautiful books, and here is the result of my foray into colouring one of the pages!
Not only have I been colouring, but I’ve been drawing. I have an art background and often thought (and wished) I could make more time to return to creating artworks, as it is such a relaxing and rewarding pursuit.
Well, I have news… Now I HAVE to make time for it, because I have recently accepted a book deal with US publisher Sourcebooks for my own adults colouring book! *happydance*
You can read the deal announcement HERE. (the title mentioned has now been changed)
To sum it up, it is an inspirational colouring book, titled COLOR YOUR DREAMS! Each drawing is based around a particular positive word or theme, and contains not only unique hand-illustrated designs to colour, but written activity pages for each theme was well. So if you are wanting to attract more abundance into your life, there will be an abundance page to colour accompanied by empowering activities to do related to that theme, and the same for other themes such as wellbeing, love, wisdom, etc. It’s like a colouring book and self-help book in one! I’m so excited to be combining 3 of my passions into one book – art, words, and self-empowerment.
I’m busily drawing more of the pages, and can’t wait till I can show you some of the designs. The book is scheduled for release in early 2016, so to keep updated make sure you subscribe to this blog or my email newsletter, and follow me on Facebook.
>>You can also join my COLOR YOUR DREAMS group on Facebook! Share your creations, chat with others, and get updates on the book and illustrations and contests, HERE.
In the meantime, why not get into the colouring book craze if you haven’t already and check out the many great books available in bookstores and online now! And if you like, tweet me your completed colouring artworks at @Juliet_Madison and I’ll retweet them. :)
