Updates & The Forgotten Ones

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr., day, friends!

[NOTE: Please check out my interview and giveaway on Literary Rambles (link)! I forgot to post the link before I left... #d'oh!]

I'm in Chicago today (freezing my buns off) meeting with my great writer friend Jolene Perry (link). Jolene writes the best contemporary romances--check out her website for a great read (link)!

Very exciting.

I'm also hitting the revision cave hard for the next two weeks finishing up final edits on The Truth About Letting Go, the companion to The Truth About Faking (link). It's due out mid-February, so I might be a bit absentee until then.

In the meantime, remember to sign up for my newsletter below to get new release announcements when they happen! (I promise no spam.)


New bloggy friend Laura Howard (link) is spreading the word about her new book. See at the bottom how you can win a $50 Amazon gift card!

Title: The Forgotten Ones
Author: Laura Howard
Genre: NA Paranormal Fantasy Romance
Expected release date: May 15, 2013
Age Group: New Adult

Book Description:

Allison O'Malley just graduated from college. Her life's plan is to get a job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She doesn't have room for friends or even Ethan, who clearly wants more.

Hooray for Laura! And have a great week, reader- and writer-friends~ <3

That makes us even. It's cold here too. And it sucks.

Have fun in the revision cave, Leigh. :)

Cold here too, not fun. Never even knew it was such a day, as we don't have it at our canadian bay.

Congrats to Laura!

Hope you're warming up. Chicago can be very bitter - all those cities on the Great Lakes. I grew up on the east end of Lake Erie. Brrr.

Yay on your next book!
