A Birthday Giveaway


Today I'm another year older and wiser. Well okay, at least another year older. Truly though, it has been an eventful year during which I learned a lot, made some great new friends, and even had a few major life changes for the better. All in all, a very good year.

To celebrate I'm giving away a signed paperback (by me) of the Winter Wonders anthology in which I have a story alongside some amazing, award winning authors. The stories span across many genres; contemporary, magical realism, dystopian, steampunk, fantasy, and more. Before we get to the giveaway though, if you haven't already signed up to take part in my big cover reveal, drop by Xpresso Book Tours to sign up!

To enter, and to help me celebrate my birthday with some likes and follows and such, I hope you'll fill out the Rafflecopter form below:

a Rafflecopter giveaway

The contest is open to international contestants. However, if you live outside the continental U.S., the prize will be an eBook instead of a paperback. Sorry, but I can't afford the shipping to a foreign address right after the holidays.

A New Novel and Call for Cover Reveal Participants

It's finally official, my first epic fantasy novel, The Dragon Empire, is releasing in Spring of Next year! To celebrate I'm doing a cover reveal in January (official reveal date is Monday January 14th but you can post any time after that as well) and I'd love it if all of you would like to participate. You don't have to do much if you don't want to, I'll do all the work for you with a guest post! For those who would like to participate, I'll send out a guest post for you to put up on your blog. And any time you have in January~or even February if you're really booked~would be fantastic and hugely appreciated. To help me out and be a part of it, shoot me an email or leave me a comment below with a way to contact you. Or, you can sign up over at Xpresso Reads Book Tours

I'm crazy excited but also a bit nervous as I am venturing a wee bit out of the young adult genre on this one. It's more of a new adult novel than YA. For me this isn't so much a metamorphosis as it is getting back to my roots. Adult fantasy is what I began writing long ago and it is where my heart lies. So this step closer to it feels very natural and right to me. I hope my fans will feel the same!

The Dragon Empire will still be appropriate for older YA, it just isn't written with YA as the primary target audience. The beauty of it is, it isn't really written with any target audience in mind. This one just flowed from that wonderful creative place that demands a writer to write. To add it to your Goodreads list, and to read more about it, click here.

Birthday Wishes And Two Giveaways


Today is a very special author's birthday, Elana Johnson. You may have heard of her fabulous dystopian novels in the Possession series published through Simon Pulse. If you haven't hurry over to B&N or Amazon right now, because trust me, you're missing out if you haven't read them!

Elana isn't just a great author though, she's a great person who is always reaching out to help others. If you read her blog, you know what I mean. She is a huge inspiration to me, and a good friend, one of the rare traditionally published ones who didn't turn their back on me when I went indie. Thank you for that Elana, and I hope you have a perfect birthday and sell tons of books!

For Elana's birthday a mutual good friend of ours, Christine Fonseca, is giving away a print collection of all three of Elana's novels! To enter, fill out the form below then scroll down for a second giveaway with the Holiday Hullabaloo:
