Is This YA Book For Me?

Sep 25, 2014 by

Don’t you hate it when the book you decided to read turns out to have a lot of elements you dislike? We all have pet peeves, things that make us dislike a book for one reason or another. I know I do. For instance, I get bored out of mind with books that spend a lot of time describing the setting. Things like furniture, clothes, weather, etc. Yawn! To me, in this department, a little goes a long way.

So I thought, why not do book reviews with this is mind? Why not try to help readers decide if a book is for them or not? Yep, why not? So here it is. I will vlog my reviews, using he haghtag #YA4ME wherever I can. As in: Is this YA book for me?

Let me know if you find this helpful. And what pet peeves you have that can make you dislike a book, so I can consider them when I do other book reviews.

“Guess The Title” Giveaway

Aug 23, 2013 by

And the title of my new book is …

And the winner of the giveaway is … :)

Thank you so much to all who entered. Your support and enthusiasm keep me writing passionately!
The new book in The Guys Are Props Club series will release on 12/04/2013
Here is a short description:

Jessica Norton is a villain in the body of a gorgeous, rich, college girl. She cheats, lies, plays with people’s feelings, and purposely breaks unsuspecting hearts to avenge a personal loss. She’s the kind of girl people love to hate—even if it’s just because she has it all. Except . . . she doesn’t have it all. What she wants most is the love of her high school sweetheart, Taylor Drennon, the guy who got away, the one who left without telling her why and caused all her bitterness.

Not surprisingly, Jessica’s evil has made her a pariah. Alone, without friends or Taylor’s love, her college life is a nightmare. She’s haunted by her own mistakes and drowning in lack of direction. Something needs to change. So when the first opportunity to turn her life around presents itself, she takes it. Home for Christmas break, Jessica runs into Taylor. His unexpected friendliness seems like an invitation to rekindle their love. Inspired by a drastic idea that will both distance her from her heinous reputation and pull her closer to Taylor, she decides to transfer to OSU where he attends under a football scholarship.

Confident she can regain his heart, Jessica reenters Taylor’s life with a splash. Failing to naturally lure him closer, she is then forced to rely on her old games and underhanded scheming. Though Jessica’s heart is in the right place, it is hidden from Taylor by her blunders. More than once their powerful chemistry takes control, leading Jessica to believe she’s winning. But, it’s a hot and cold affair, and she’s not the only one to blame for their stormy love. If Jessica can only coax Taylor into explaining why he doesn’t want her, maybe she could finally walk away from him for good, maybe she could finally be happy.

To my enormous satisfaction, I’ve been able to diligently work on my new book—the second one in The Guys Are Props Club series. To my even greater delight, it is coming along nicely, and every day, every word, every chapter that goes by, I get more and more excited.

I want to share this excitement—as always—by sharing a few prizes with everyone. For that purpose, I have a new giveaway/contest that should be lots of fun.

Everyone can participate—no purchase necessary :D So click away in the Rafflecopter to get as many entries as you can. You will notice that the “Guess The Title” option will give you 10 extra entries. It might be hard to guess the title of my new book, but guess away regardless. I know I’ll have fun reading your creative entries. Plus you increase your chances of winning, whether you get it right or not.

If no one guesses the title, there will be a random drawing to pick the winner. If one person guesses that person wins. If more than one person gets the title right, then there’ll be a random drawing between those readers. I will reveal everyone’s guesses AND the title at the end, so get creative!

HINT: The title of the new book can be found between the pages of “The Guys Are Props Club”, and remember the series is “The G.A.P. Club”
