Happy Six-month Book Birthday to Into a Million Pieces!

I can't believe my book baby is six-months old! To celebrate, I'm hosting an INTERNATIONAL giveaway on Goodreads! Meaning, anyone, anywhere can enter (as long as you have a Goodreads account). Yes, I will ship a signed copy of Into a Million Pieces to any address on the planet--as long as it's a proper address, of course (i.e. don't ask me to ship it to your home-made house boat out in the middle of the Amazon River--appreciate it).

Happy entering!

It's Official: I'm a #BadAss

As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm participating in the #BADASSREADS summer-long event, hosted by the talented and fabulous Bethany Crandall.

What is this #BADASSREADS I speak of? Well, it involves getting to know twenty authors over the course of the summer. At the end of it all, twenty five (yes, I said TWENTY-freakin'-FIVE) signed books will be given away (grouped into seven prize packs).

INTO A MILLION PIECES is part of the "SPELLS, SPIRITS and SWOONS, OH MY!" Prize pack (and let me tell ya, I am in some AMAZING company). And because I love you guys so much, I've made entering incredibly easy by including the rafflecopter below.

Oh, and it just so happens, I am the official #BadAss author of the day, so if you hop on over to, you'll get to find out some cool stuff about me, like why I think Slip-n-Slides are a deathtrap, and why people who cut their toenails at work should be hung by them.

Good luck!

Also, in my last blog post, I mentioned how people have been asking me about my publishing experience thus far, specifically, is it everything I thought it would be. Here is the link to the guest post I wrote on the topic: Confessions of a Newly-Published Author. My answer may surprise you...

Finally, I am participating in a HUGE (and I mean, HUUUUUGE) summertime YA book event called #BADASSREADS.

Time--and how I wish I could get a little more of it...

Gah! How has it already been two months since my last post on here?!?! And how in the world can my little book baby already be almost four months old?!?!

Time has been passing by at the speed of light, and the fact that my life has been EXTREMELY busy lately doesn't help. A few months back, it was all about promo and book tours and reaching out to book reviewers, and now a whole new beast has entered my life--moving. We listed our house almost two months ago, and about two weeks ago, we accepted an offer. So, now we're in the stage of looking for a new house, while anxiously awaiting to see if our house appraised high enough (for the buyers mortgage). Oh, and did I mention the new owners want to be in the house in about a month? And in case you missed the prior sentence, we don't have a house yet! Sooo... yeah. A wee bit stressed.

Moving on... (pun intended)

The blog tour went well! There were lots of guest posts, interviews, and lovely reviews! I'm in the process of posting links to all the stops on my "Interviews, Guest Posts, and Reviews" page (surprise, surprise, I'm a little bit behind). Thanks to everyone who stopped by or hosted me on their blog. It was a great time :)

So, what's going on as far as writing? Not much, sorry to say. I'm about 30K into the sequel for INTO A MILLION PIECES, but I doubt I'll be able to tackle anymore wordage for a while--at least not until this whole house stress is over with. I will say that I'm happy with what I've written so far. I think readers are really going to enjoy the new setting, characters, and--of course--plot twists!

As I was saying earlier, I can't believe it's been four months since INTO A MILLION PIECES debuted!! I just want to say thank you to everyone who bought a copy or has shown his/her support in any kind of way! I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

A lot of people have asked me, "Is being a published author what you thought it would be?" It's a very good question and one I want to answer, but since I recently wrote a guest post on the topic--which will go live on June 7th (I think)--I'm going to hold off answering it until then. I'll post a link to it when it does, so stay tuned :)
