Hey guys...have a question about the Dark Rituals books you always wanted to ask? I'm doing my first twitter Q/A. So please come ask some questions!! Any questions!! Here's the official info: Got Qs about the Dark Rituals saga? Send them to @catrinaburgess1 using #DarkRitualQA and she'll answer on Feb 17!


My publishing house Full Fathom Five let me put the whole story back up on Wattpad in celebration of book 4 – Legion going on sale Feb 17th.

You can buy a digital copy of the books on sale now through Googleplay, Amazon, Nook.  They should be going on sale shortly on Kobo and Itunes.

Awakening, book 1 – sale price 99 cents.

Possession, book 2 – sale price $1.99

Revenant, book 3 – sale price $2.99

Legion, book 4 – going on sale Feb 17th, price $5.99

That’s about $12 dollars for the four books in the series.

A pretty good price when you realize I worked on the stories almost full time for 3 years. It took me 2 years to write the first four books. And then it took me 8 months to work on the publisher’s edits of the books.

Blowing kisses to all the readers who buy my books and support my writing. It means more to me than you can ever know! You are helping me follow my dream!

You can now buy the print version of book 1, 2 & 3 at Amazon, Barnes and Noble.

Overseas readers can get the print versions from book depository. Awakening is $12.49 (shipping free). Possession is $14.97 (shipping free) and Revenant is $14.53 (shipping free) Book depository ships to 100 countries.

If you liked the Dark Rituals books please tell your friends about them!

Are there going to be more books in the series?

I have plans to write a prequel set in the 1920s. And I have an idea for a series set down the road in the future called the Dark Days. In the Dark Days some of the characters from The Dark Rituals will appear.

Am I going to write more about Colina’s and Luke’s adventures? Never say never! I don’t have plans to write anything at the moment, but you never know.

Sandra Easter had me over to her blog and did a very cool interview:
