Hi Everyone,

I have so much news that it’s nearly impossible to contain it all in a single post. First off, I finished writing  my fourth novel, SPLINTERED, which is Book Three in the Sense Thieves trilogy (scheduled to pub in April 2014). Plus, I have a cover for PUSHED, a new website, new services to offer young adult writers, and to top it all off, I’m having a contest.

PUSHED Cover Reveal

I’m so, so excited to show everyone what the cover is going to look like for PUSHED. I LOVE this cover. I LOVE the model. I LOVE the colors. I can’t wait to get my copy of this. PUSHED is Book Two in the Sense Thieves trilogy, and it will publish in the US on November 26, 2013. Are you ready?

Web Refresh

As you can see, things look a bit different around here. Aside from the look, there are going to be some major changes, including new monthly and weekly features. Here’s what you have to look forward to!

The Contest

To celebrate all of these happenings, I’m having a massive contest. I’m going to be giving away:

  • (2) Signed Copies of TOUCHED
  • (2) Signed Copies of IF I LIE
  • (2) Manuscript Consultations (first 10 pages only)
  • (1) Online Workshop pass (good for entry into one workshop)
  • (1) Book Launch Consultation (only for eligible debut authors)
  • (5) Fancy Office Supplies Sets (late addition)

Due to the high cost of shipping, the contest is eligible for US residents only.

UPDATE: I came across these sweet notepads, frames, and pens that looked inspired by my new site and I couldn’t resist picking them up to use for prizes. Five winners will get one each of the large notepad, dress notepad, pen, and frame.
