Hi, my name is Nina Soden and I’m an author.
Wow, it feels really funny to say that. I mean, I am an author. I have seven published books; 6 novels (Awaken, Beginnings, Revenge, and Pursuit all part of the Blood Angel Series and The Chosen and The Hunted the first 2 books of the SECTOR C Series) and 1 poetry book, but calling myself an author still feels strange.
Author is only one of the many hats or ‘personalities’ I wear throughout my day. My most important? Mommy, that one simple word means the world to me and hearing it when my kids call me – well, that melts my heart. The other hats I love to wear: wife, daughter, sister, actress, and artist. The hats I wear because everyone has to make a living and keep the house in order: employee, consultant, chauffeur (when you have kids – you are nothing if not a chauffeur), cook, assistant cheer coach, etc., etc., etc. Hats I’m learning to wear: self-publicist, marketing specialist, social-media specialist, and all the others that go with being an Indie-Author. When I started writing, I had no idea how much work it takes to be an author. To put it simply, you do everything on your own and it is HARD WORK!
This blog was originally started to keep a record of my journey as I wrote, edited, and published my first young adult series ~ the Blood Angel Series ~ Awaken (book 1), Beginnings (book 2), and Revenge (book 3). Well, I did it! It was a long yet exciting adventure. Before publishing what I thought was the final book, I put the first two books through a rigorous re-edit and rewrite in order to make sure that they were the best they could be. After that was all done, I truly could say that I felt fully confident that all three of these books were exactly how I wanted them to be. Book 4, Pursuit (my 6th novel) came late, much later in October of 2016. It was unplanned but developed out of an idea given to me by one of my readers.
But, I didn’t stop with the Blood Angel Series!
I continued to write and on March 30, 2015 I published my 4th novel The Chosen (book 1 in the SECTOR C Series) and followed it up with The Hunted (book 2 in the SECTOR C Series) on November 8, 2015.
I would love to share all of my books with you and find out what you think. If you are interested in learning more about the Blood Angel Series or the SECTOR C Series please take a few seconds and spend the few dollars it takes to download my eBooks or order your paperback version – and please tell your family, bribe your friends and blackmail your enemies into picking up a copy of their own.

What Is Next?
Well, the best thing about being an author is that I have a bunch of story ideas floating around in my head at all times. So, right now I am working on…
