Time to EMBRACE!! Giveaway Alert

My dear friend, Cherie Colyer, is gearing up to release the second novel in her EMBRACE series, HOLD TIGHT. As gracious authors are wont to do, she’s offering up some delicious EMBRACE swag and building buzz for the new novel.MktgEmbraceQuotes3

I have already finished HOLD TIGHT and will release it’s review in time with the release date, August 20, but in the meantime I want to share some info about EMBRACE and links to contests that are currently running.

Madison is experiencing dramatic changes in life, school and relationships. The most cherished people seem to disappear from Madison’s life, leaving her scared to invest herself in any new relationships.

MktgEmbraceKissAs a new threat nearly kills her best friend Kailee, Madison must rely on Issac, a new boy in school who has powers that she can’t explain, to find the help Kailee needs. And, in the process, to save herself.

EMBRACE is contemporary paranormal YA. The pace is appropriate, language rich and clear, and the story makes a great read for anyone who likes teen romance mixed with their witchcraft.

Anyone who’d like to catch up with EMBRACE can pick it up on Amazon HERE!

It’s Saturday, and I’m having a super day. Why? Because this week I won 7 books!

1. A signed copy of: THE UNFINISHED WORK OF ELIZABETH D by Nichole Bernier courtesy of the Guide to Literary Agents Blog at Writer’s Digest. Oh! I just love that site!!! (Fourth book I’ve won as a commenter).

And a 6-pack of contemporary romance e-books from OmniFic Publishing for being part of the #Omnilicious Twitter party last night. So much fun!! I was able to interact with so many published ladies–who were great about answering any and all questions. Even Carol Oates out in Ireland who’d stayed up way past 2am local time to participate! Giant thanks to Cherie Colyer (@CherieColyer), a critique partner and OmniFic author, who invited me.

Will add reviews as soon as I finish.

On tap to read next?

TRANSPARENT by Natalie Whipple and THE BLUE BLAZES by a super awesome author Chuck Wendig. If you haven’t seen his blog at Terribleminds.com go now (just remember to come back here!)

Also making today awesome?  I had the excellent fortune to win FIVE items in the 2013 Brenda Novak Auction for diabetes research including swag but (most importantly!) I snagged a mini-critique from YA author Sara Hantz and a query critique and consultation with super-agent Gordon Warnock of Foreword Literary…I’m beside myself!

All for now!

PS. Still figuring out all the linky-links. And researching how to import covers…starting a blog is scary-fun…
