Read an excerpt on WATTPAD:


HOW TO PLAY · draw a card from the deck · kill or be killed · and if you’re lucky, repeat… Hidden agendas, deep, dark secrets, and monsters lurking around every locker. It’s business as usual at Redgrave High for Eryn and her crew of paranorm hunters – they plan to capture and cure Brit’s brother from his tormented existence, Eryn is reunited with her father’s beta, and Redgrave’s origins are revealed. Although the two guys vying for Eryn’s heart just might have to up their game. Enter hot, wolven guy stage left. Is he the one Alec’s blood magic foretold? He is, if Eryn’s knocking pulse has anything to say about it. The tale-tell sound is driving Wade mad. But it’s Eryn’s move, and everyone is holding their breath. A little healthy competition soon becomes all-out survival of the fittest as the crew are pitted against a pack of demons trading souls – for keeps. The student population is enamored with a new card game, Boroughs Quest. Kids are desperate to get their hands on gilded cards from a mysterious expansion deck, but when they do… It’s all fun and games ’til somebody dies. (more…)

Holiday Blog Hop Giveaway

Holiday Gift Exchange - Book Lovers Blog Hop Banner

Today I am taking part in a holiday blog hop/giveaway. I’ve been following it the last couple of days and each blog is giving away something and there is an overall giveaway too.  Each blog is giving away something to each reader and I have seen some cool things.

I should have had this post up sooner but work went a little long this morning. One of the associates asked me if I had heard the Christmas song “I want a hippopotamus”. I hadn’t and before I left she had it playing and I have to say it is super cute. Even though this one doesn’t take me back to childhood what Christmas song takes you back to your childhood?

For my FREE gift I’m sharing a poem. I’m writing a YA story and the female lead grew up in a loving home that turned abusive after her mother died. This poem is written from her perspective as a way to share her feelings of her home life before she left. In order to get this just answer the question above about a song that takes you back to your childhood and I will email it to you.

As a bonus I want to mention a FREE book. It is called Under My Skin by Judith graves. It is available for free on Smashwords. Here is a description: All her parents wanted was for Eryn to live a normal life… Redgrave had its share of monsters before Eryn moved to town. Mauled pets, missing children. The Delacroix family is taking the blame, but Eryn knows the truth. Something stalks the night. Wade, the police chief’s son and Redgrave High’s resident hottie, warns her the Delacroix are dangerous. But then so is Eryn–in fact, she’s lethal. But she can’t help falling for one of the Delacroix boys, dark, brooding–human Alec. And then her world falls apart. A normal life? Now that’s the real fairytale.

Be sure to go enter the overall giveaway of $100 Amazon gift card, HERE. And be sure to check out the other freebies being offered HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!

Looking for a place to submit your young adult work?

Today I’ve got a guest post from Judith Graves who is the acquiring editor for Leap publishing.


As acquiring editor for SHINE, the new YA/NA line from Leap Books, I’m always in the market for great reads and what better way to seek them out than to share news about our upcoming releases and provide our submission guidelines?

Leap Books, LLC has been around since 2009, but we’re just venturing into the world of ebook novellas for both young adult and new adult markets. Early in 2015 we’ll see the launch of two young adult SHINE titles and I can’t wait for these babies to go live.

05Tina Ferraro, a two-time RITA Young Adult finalist and the author of The ABC’s of Kissing Boys (Delacorte Books for Young Readers), helps to launch SHINE with HALF-LIFE, a dreadfully fun paranormal. This story follows Trisha in the days before her 15th birthday, as her long deceased identical twin makes appearances in mirrors to help prevent her similarly early demise. (more…)
