In case you've been living under a book tent--which, more power to ya!--Con-Troll YA is a young adult lit conference featuring author panels, a writing workshop (that I'm leading this year), and book signings. Stop by to make all your dreams come true...or at least get some swag.

Special props go to the booklicious Sara G. of The Hiding Spot blog. Northern Michigan can thank (or blame depending on how much sugar Kate and I ingest) her for puttin' the YA in Cherry Festival! What? Those letters are totally in there!
As you may already know, music is a huge inspiration for everything I write. I get most of my ideas from song lyrics and use the playlists I compile for my novels to push through the congestion of [uninvited] Writer's Block Parties. Music is magical in the way it evokes emotion and inspires. That same magic lives on every page of every book you love, which is why I'm so excited to share these songs with you. They're a tiny peek inside Cassidy's world and the friends (and frenemies) that made her afterlife...ish so thrilling to write about. And hopefully, for you, to read about.
June brings more than just sunny weather and an excuse to wear crop tops 24-7. On June 16th the paperback edition of My Last Kiss will hit bookshelves, and I am absolutely thrilled about some fun extras my publisher and I have planned for you guys.
The first is a super generous Goodreads giveaway that runs through the end of the month. Click below to enter, and stay tuned for more details on other paperback-tastic extras!
No sweetheart this Valentine's Day? No problem! Cuddle up with a signed copy of My Last Kissinstead. Besides, everyone knows book boyfriends are way better than real boys. Sorry, guys. Sometimes the truth hurts. Just remember: there's always chocolate.
RayKay Books has broken the hunt into four categories (listed below) in which fabulous YA authors give video hints along the way. You can find yours truly in the Thriller/Mystery link. Each author has his/her individual giveaways as well as a grand prize for the entire hunt that will end January 7th.
