Cover Reveal: The Grave Winner by Lindsey R. Loucks

I'm so excited to participate in the cover reveal for Lindsey R. Loucks' The Grave Winner.  The Grave Winner is coming May 15, 2013 from Crescent Moon Press, and it looks amazing!  Goodreads pile?  Yes, please.  Congrats, Lindsey, on your upcoming release!

Leigh Baxton is terrified her mom will come back from the dead -- just like the prom queen did.

While the town goes beehive over the news, Leigh bikes to the local cemetery and buries some of her mom’s things in her grave to keep her there. When the hot and mysterious caretaker warns her not to give gifts to the dead, Leigh cranks up her punk music and keeps digging.

She should have listened.

Two dead sorceresses evicted the prom queen from her grave to bury someone who offered certain gifts. Bury them alive, that is, then resurrect them to create a trio of undead powerful enough to free the darkest sorceress ever from her prison inside the earth.

With help from the caretaker and the dead prom queen, Leigh must find out what’s so special about the gifts she gave, and why the sorceresses are stalking her and her little sister. If she doesn’t, she’ll either lose another loved one or have to give the ultimate gift to the dead – herself.

Lindsey R. Loucks works as a school librarian in rural Kansas. When she's not discussing books with anyone who will listen, she's dreaming up her own stories. Eventually her brain gives out, and she'll play hide and seek with her cat, put herself in a chocolate induced coma, or watch scary movies alone in the dark to reenergize.

She's been with her significant other for almost two decades.

 Today I'm excited to participate in the Cover Reveal of Death of a Waterfall, the upcoming release from my writer-friend Kara Leigh Miller.  I've so enjoyed getting to know Kara over the Twitterverse -- she's a member of the #darkside, and if you're looking for some thoroughly enjoyable photo-tweets, I suggest you follow her.  But for now, enjoy a peek at this gorgeous cover for Kara's newest upcoming title!

Teghan Jacobs didn’t think anything could be worse than learning she’s pregnant by a man she’s been dating less than six months. Boy was she wrong. Her mother, whose drowning in the river of denial, refuses to take a side on the issue. Her overbearing, manipulative father threatens to disown her and cut her off from her trust fund if she doesn’t have an abortion. And she's lying to all of her friends for fear of being ostracized.

Donnie Marks couldn’t be happier. The woman he loves, the woman he fought so hard to be with, is going to have his baby. Life has never been better. But when she shows up in his dorm, sobbing and heartbroken, he learns the horrible truth of what happened. He vows to get revenge on the man who's responsible: Teghan's father.

 Snark and Circumstance 
by Stephanie Wardrop
 One superior smirk from Michael Endicott convinces sixteen-year-old Georgia Barrett that the Devil wears Polo. His family may have founded the postcard-perfect New England town they live in, but Georgia’s not impressed. Even if he is smart, good looking, and can return Georgia’s barbs as deftly as he returns serves on his family’s tennis courts. After all, if Michael actually thinks she refuses to participate in lab dissections just to mess with his grade, he’s a little too sure that he’s the center of the universe.

Cover Reveal: A Summer to Remember

I'm excited to take part of the official cover reveal for Jessica Gunhammer's upcoming Young Adult novel, A Summer to Remember.

“A Summer to Remember” coming April 2013


Eighteen-year-old Ava knows this summer is going to be one of the best ones yet, but it isn’t going how she originally planned. Her life takes an unexpected turn on graduation day, when Jason, the love of her life, suddenly dumps her. Blindsided and feeling betrayed Ava is determined to win him back at the end of year frat party. Something that was not in her plan, however, was being sidetracked by a complete and total stranger. Caught off guard by this unexplainable attraction, she can’t figure out why she’s having such a hard time forgetting about him.

Adrian had one thing on his mind that night. It was to get through the summer and not have to worry about anything, but working with his dad and getting the hell out of this small town. When he meets Ava his whole world is turned upside down. He doesn’t know why but he knows that this is the girl he’s supposed to be with. The only problem is going to be trying to convince her of the same thing…


I’m twenty-three years old, I recently married my high school sweetheart and we live in paradise. I graduated college in May 2012 with a degree in fashion design and quickly realized it was not the right fit for me. So, after spending several years in a fast paced fashion industry, I started looking for something new to keep me busy.
I have always loved to read, it was a passion of mine. However, I had put this passion on the back burner, as I had no time to read during college. Soon after, my mom and I started a publishing company. It was while working in the publishing industry that I had rediscovered my love for writing. I’ve always known I wanted to write, but I never considered making a career out of it. After some feedback and support from my amazing family I am proud to say, I am now a YA author!
