More News!

Could September 2012 rock any harder???  Wow, you guys!  I just got some fantastic news from my editor at Harper...

First of all, to keep the momentum of the series going, the publication date of Sweet Book #2 is being pushed up from Winter to Summer 2013!!!  I'm so thrilled!  I'll let you know as soon as we have a set date.

In other fun news, Sweet Evil is being made into an audiobook, which will be available November, 13, 2012!  The reader will be Erin Mallon.  I couldn't be more excited!!!

October 5th the next Kai POV chapter will be posted!  Here's some information about it on Goodreads!

And lastly I have the official titles for books two and three of The Sweet Trilogy!!!  They wanted a dichotomy between the words, sticking to the "Sweet" theme, but not have it sound too "adult romance novel-esque."  I'm very happy with the final decision.  So here you have it, friends...

Book Two: Slated for Summer 2013

Book Three: Slated for Summer 2014


Big hugs and happy fall,

The Sweet Trilogy - NEWS!!!

Yesterday was a fun day for me.  (EEEEEKKK!!!!)  I bounced around the house kissing my children and laughing like a lunatic.

First off, I've had my very first foreign sale - to Albatros Publishing in the Czech Republic!!!  Aahhhh!!!  And I have a special message to my Czech readers (thank you Vendula Dvořáčková for the translation):

*     *     *

Zdravìm vsechny ceske ctenare! Uz se nemuzu dockat, az si budete moci precist Sweet Evil ve vasem materskem jazyce. Dekuji za vasi podporu! Kniha vyjde u nakladatelstvi Albatros (zatim neni zname datum vydani). 

*     *     *

There's something extremely thrilling about knowing my words will be translated into another language and made available to another culture on the other side of the world. It makes me weepy just thinking about it.

And speaking of weepy...I've made my very first vlog. For you. To announce my news...this was my first take, and though it's a little embarrassing and taken at a bad angle, it shows how I feel, so here ya go.

I promise to announce news as I get it.  Feel free to ask questions in the comments, and I will answer all of them.

All together now...*GROUP HUG*

Cover Reveal: CHARADE by Nyrae Dawn

My great friend, Nyrae Dawn, writes YA and adult romance (adult stories are under the name Kelley Vitollo), and now we have her first NA or "New Adult" novel!  I'm dying to read this one, and plan to very soon.  It releases November 30th, 2012.

Nineteen-year-old Cheyenne tries to portray the perfect life to mask the memories of her past. Walking in on her boyfriend with another woman her freshman year in college threatens her picture of perfection.
Twenty-one-year-old Colt never wanted college and never expected to amount to anything, but when his mom's dying wish is for him to get his degree, he has no choice but to pretend it’s what he wants too.
Cheyenne needs a fake boyfriend to get back at her ex and Colt needs cash to take care of his mom, so they strike a deal that helps them both. But what if Cheyenne’s past isn’t what she thought? Soon they’re trading one charade for another. The game and the emotions building between them become the only things either of them have that feels real.
Both Cheyenne and Colt know life is never that easy. When tragedy strikes, their love might not be enough to hold them together.

I Now Present...Your Kaidan Fix!

Hello beauties!

First, my news.  SWEET HOPE is being brought to the acquisition board at HarperCollins tomorrow!  That means we will have a definite yes or no very soon.  :-)  Thank you for your support and patience during this process.

And now for the goodie I promised you during the YA Crush Tourney...a scene from Kaidan's POV!!!  After deliberating all summer, I was inspired to write the first chapter from his viewpoint--the moment where Kai and Anna see one another for the first time, and then meet.  As you can imagine, being in Kai's head is very different than being in Anna's.  He's dodgy when it comes to feelings, refusing to admit things, even to himself.  His mind is not exactly the cleanest place to hang out, either, so be warned (teehee).  If you are offended by sexual commentary and cursing, you should probably sit this one out.  I managed to write SWEET EVIL without any "major" cuss words, but I did not want to censor Kai here.
