Hey look I have another book coming out!
THE COVER IS JUST SO PRETTYYYYYYYYY.
I wonder who made it? Oh yeah that's me. It took me a freaking long time to decide on the best cover, but I think this one is the most eye catching. I would totally read it, but that's me.
So what's this book about? More aliens? No, this is actually contemporary and Upper YA. Here is a little blurb for ya:
There are worse things in life than failing out of college- such as having your parents receive the letter that you’ve been kicked out.
Now to appease her parents self-proclaimed sorority princess Libby Gentry is packing up her Prada bag and heading to work for her great aunt’s newspaper in tiny Elsbury, Louisiana. She’s pretty sure she can tackle the swamp and deal with her great aunt and tom boy of a little cousin, but what she doesn’t know is if she can handle the local town playboy, Blaine Crabtree.
As Libby's feelings for Blaine grow, so does her need for acceptance and all of the insecurities she has kept inside are coming out. She may have survived the Louisiana swamp, but she may not survive Blaine's reluctance to say the 'L' word. When Blaine finally commits to the three words Libby’s been waiting for, she only hopes they haven’t come too late.
Way different than what you are used to, right? It's still funny and cute and this was the little book that I thought may never see the light of day again, but Libby and Blaine BEGGED me to come out.
So it shall be released this August. I'm scoping out E-ARC reviewers and may do a blog tour, depending on how I'm feeling. For now you can add it on GoodReads. Or drop me a line here if you are interested in possibly doing an E-ARC review.
Some of you may be wondering WTF happened to that other contemp book you were supposed to put out about Lemons? Ugh, that deserves a long blog post, but the short story is that due to unforseen circumstances and legal issues the book will not be published. I love the story and I would love to see it get out to the world, but at this point it is just going to sit on my hard drive.
AND the big question is, "When will Alien Book 3 come out and when will we know the title?" The first draft is done. Once I complete the next draft and get it off to CPs then I will announce a title and possibly have a cover. I'm hoping for an October release.
Other than that enjoy my take on contemporary and swoon over visions of a southern gentleman named Blaine Crabtree.
