Ta-da! Pretty cool, huh?

Synopsis:

Being a hero is not such an easy job after all.

It’s junior year, and Alex and her friends are just trying to survive high school: boring homework, detention, crushes…and a fateful journey through a portal to another planet—you know, the usual. Despite being average California teenagers, this group of six find themselves on a return trip to the strange land of Cantelia, where their Spirit Guide, Goden, has sent them. This time, they appear near the Alfaran Forest: a place, where, once again, many inhabitants claim these kids are the Chosen Ones and that they will help to find a solution for ridding the forest of a new kind of horror.

Will the teens have the courage to fight the real enemy? Or will they be forever trapped on Cantelia?

New Release: The Fallen Part 2 by Robin Woods

Happy Thursday, readers!

I wanted to let you all know about a new release from my dear friend and writing partner, Robin Woods. Her exciting and sexy YA Vampire Watcher Series has finally come to its conclusion.

IMG_7812About Robin:

Young adult fiction writer, Robin Woods, was born and raised in San Jose, CA where she earned a BA in English and a MA in Education from local universities. In addition to writing, Robin has been teaching high school English for over two decades and works as a college professor. Her love of working with teenagers and her love of books inspired her to begin writing in the teen genre.

Robin’s love affair with vampire lore began at age eight when she was mesmerized by Bram Stoker’s Dracula. She took advantage of her summers off and traveled all of Europe; she even managed to find herself in one of Vlad Dracul’s castles in Romania. She escaped unharmed.

When she is not torturing her high school English students or chasing her two small children around, she is sitting in a local coffee shop wondering how vampires like their lattes.

Cover Reveal: Supernova by Braxton Cosby

Happy Monday, readers!

I have a special post today. Braxton Cosby is releasing a bunch of really cool books this year, and coming soon is the Star-Crossed Saga. I already did a cover reveal for the first book in the series: Protostar. Its follow-up, Supernova, is just as exciting and fabulous as Protostar. I also had the privilege of editing this incredible book, and I can’t wait until it’s available to the public. Lovers of YA and SciFi especially are in for a real treat with this series.

Braxton is also hosting a cover reveal for yours truly, over at his blog! If you want to see the cover for my next book in the Spirit Lake Series, The Wrong Fairy Tale, head on over to his website. 🙂


 

And now, here’s the insanely gorgeous and cool cover for Supernova:

Supernova Cover

Isn’t that such an awesome cover? I LOVE it! Check out the blurb below:


 

WHAT YOU CHOOSE, BECOMES YOU…

Against everything he had known as truth, William has made the choice to protect Sydney from the forces seeking to destroy her. But just as these two Star-Crossed lovers are beginning to explore their relationship and search for answers to the mysteries of Sydney’s existence, she advances to the next stage of her Star-child evolution—Supernova—and struggles not only to control her new powers, but also the emotions for her new love. William seeks to find the truth behind Sydney’s erratic behavior, while overcoming the new threat headed to Earth to destroy them. With new villains and old allies on the horizon, and chaos brewing on William’s home world, will self-sacrifice prove to be the only way for him to achieve victory and defend his love, or is there another way?

SUPERNOVA is the follow-up to the debut award-winning novel: PROTOSTAR!

May Update

Hey, awesome readers!

Just wanted to share some cool updates with ya’ll. There’s so much going on for me this month, so I’m doing my best to take one thing at a time. You ready? Here we go!


Website Redesign

If you have been hanging out at my blog for a while, you’ll notice I just did a huge overhaul of my website. Yes, I did it all by myself. 🙂 I am very proud, especially since I used a free WordPress theme, and I only spend about $45 per year on my domain + mapping it from my host (Network Solutions) to WordPress. It took me several hours to get everything just right, but I am pleased with the overall design. Hope you guys like it too!


 

TODAY: Special Event

One of my YA author friends is hosting a Facebook event all day long today, and you can join the event by clicking HERE. Other authors will be “taking over” during the day, including yours truly at 3:30pm PST. We’ll have some cool giveaways, so stop by—you just might win something!


 

Buzz Bookstore Excerpt Contest

I am trying to get my work “out there” even more this year, especially since my Spirit Lake series is now in the hands of my publisher, Cosby Media Productions. Something I discovered is an Except Contest, hosted by Buzz Bookstore. If I win, I will get three months of free exposure on the Buzz Bookstore site, which would be AMAZING!

Would you do me a favor and watch my video and then give it a share or two? Every bit helps! Check it out below:


Spirit Lake Review Opportunity

And speaking of getting my work “out there,” there is a special review opportunity for my debut novel, Spirit Lake! You can read my book for FREE in exchange for an honest review. To sign up to review my book (I REALLY need some reviews, too!), click HERE.

A HUGE Thank You to LIEP Promotions for hosting my book and providing the opportunity for book reviews. 🙂

Current Projects

So…what’s next for me? Well, my second book, The Wrong Fairy Tale, will be out next month! Woohoo! Paperbacks for both Spirit Lake and The Wrong Fairy Tale will be available in July—exciting!

I’m working on the third installment of the Spirit Lake series, titled Freak Show, which will hopefully be out later this year. I’m super stoked for this story and can’t wait to share teasers with you guys over the summer.

I am also working on a few secret projects, including a surprise for the Spirit Lake series. I’ll let you guys know any news I can share when the time is right. 😉


Under Development

Coming up, something exciting (I hope!) for authors/writers: an easy sign-up sheet in order to be featured on my blog. I LOVE being able to give back to the writing and reading community by featuring authors/writers and their work. I am working on a way to make things easier on me to host and on those who want to be featured on my blog. Of course, there will be some basic criteria for guest posts/features, but nothing crazy. When things are all set and sign-ups are live, I’ll make the announcement. Keep your eyes peeled for the update!


Editing Tip

Quick editing tip: Not sure about the wording for that new novel you’re writing? Take a break from writing and read your work OUT LOUD. It’s easier to catch choppy sentences and word repeats when you read aloud. 😉

If you’re looking for a professional editor, you can contact me by clicking HERE for more information or a quote.


 

Well, that’s all for now. Hope you’re all having a fabulous week! And don’t forget to check out my latest book HERE.

Thank You, Readers!
