That's right! The awesome, badass cover to my upcoming YA sci-fi thriller Avalon has finally been revealed. You can check it out over at Epic Reads. You'll find the synopsis and you can enter to win 1 of 5 Advanced Readers Copies. It's super easy to enter. Also, the book is coming out January 21, 2014!!! If I've got my math right, that's only 7 months. Woohoo! So go take a look and I'd love to know what you think.

Signings, Giveaways, and More!

Just a quick reminder that I'm doing a dual signing and author talk with the lovely Liz Coley this coming Saturday at 1:00 at the Beavercreek Barnes & Noble.

If you're still looking for a signed copy of The Nightmare Affair, you can enter to win one AND raise money for the Oklahoma disaster relief over at The Lucky 13s. I'm also giving away a Query Letter + 5 Pages Critique.

You can also enter to win a copy of The Nightmare Affair and a bunch of other awesome books over at the 2014 Debut Authors group, OneFourKidLit.

In other news, the cover reveal for Avalon is coming very soon, sometime after June 5th. And speaking of cover reveals, I've created 2 annotated ARCs of The Nightmare Affair that I'll be giving away as part of The Nightmare Dilemma cover reveal. I'm not sure when that one will be, but it should be very soon as well.

Happy reading and I hope to see you Saturday!

TLA 2013 Schedule

As promised, I've gathered together the details of what I'll be doing at TLA 2013. Below I've listed my "official" events, but I plan on doing lots of unofficial stuff, too, like totally fan-girling over all the awesome authors that are going to be there. (Seriously, I'm not quite sure how I ended up on the guest list, but I'll take it!)

Anyway, here's my schedule and I hope to see some of you there! Oh, and even if I don't look it, I promise I'm totally approachable. I have one of those faces where if I'm not smiling I look unfriendly, but I swear this is misleading. I'm only unfriendly if you're like a psycho-crazy person. All normal people have no need to worry :)

Oh one more thing, for the official record: LIBRARIES ROCK!!!
