We are now closed….

Thank you for participating in the Wasteland Blog Tour. We’re now closed to entries. The winner will be announced Monday October 3th.


Thanks again for celebrating the release of my debut novel with me. I hear a little rumor that the first book in my Violet Night Trilogy will be released March 2012. How exciting is that?

So get ready, we’re going to have a super fun blog tour with Emma and Jake.


Have a GREAT day!


The End

It has been a fantastic month. I thank you all for participating in my month-long blog tour. You made it all worth while.

Weekending and Reviews…

Happy Weekending 

I love that phrase. My good friend, Lori, says that a lot. It just makes me smile. Weekends are a time to unwind, whether your true weekend is Saturday and Sunday or not.

For me, it’s not. I work in a bookstore…which means RETAIL HOURS. LOL

So, the bulk of my hours are on Saturday and Sunday. But I get a couple days off during the weekdays so it’s all good.

I still enjoy the weekends, though, because going to a job I love every single day….that just doesn’t feel like work.


As you well know by now, I’m in the middle of release month for my debut novel, Wasteland. I’ve been all over the internet on my blog tour, had my first book signing, and am working on scheduling a book signing out in ATLANTA! I hope it pans out. I’m super excited.

But with a book release comes REVIEWS. Yep…people voicing their opinions of a book for all the world to see.

You could say it’s a bit nerve wracking. I know there will be people who love and hate Wasteland. It comes with the territory. I mean, I love and hate some books. It’s no offense to anyone, some just aren’t my taste. I’m sure you’ve all run into that.

So far, the reviews for Wasteland have been mostly favorable. Quite a few are listed here on AMAZON. I’ve started a tab here on the blog, too: WASTELAND REVIEWS. Also GoodReads and Barnes and Noble are great places to see some reviews.

There are a couple more going up on blogs today too:

Jess the Romanceaholic and Avery Olive

If you head over to Avery or Jessica’s blog and leave a comment, you’ll earn twenty-five entries toward the Amazon Kindle/Gift card Giveaway (click here for giveaway details.)


If you’ve read Wasteland, I’d love for you to post a review. It’s one of the best ways to spread the word.

Here are the big three places to post reviews:

Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads

Leave me the link to your review in the comments here and I’ll put you down for an extra twenty-five entries toward the Amazon Kindle/Gift Card giveaway.

Thanks for your support!
