TWO WEEKS! The 2015 RT Convention in Dallas, Texas

Monday, April 27, 2015

It's almost here. One of the most fun events in the book world is happening in Dallas this year! Are you coming? I sure hope you are because it's shaping up to be helluva event.

There are going to be books, talks, books, events, and more books.

I'm going to be on a panel. Oy vey. Me speaking. Oh, and I'm moderating a panel with Colleen Hoover, Jay Crownover, Sophie Jordan, Christina Lee, K.A. Linde, and Lia Riley. We will be discussing the New Adult genre inside and outside the college setting.

I'm going to take a moment right here to take a deep breath. *gasp, struggle, gasp* Great unicorns, how the heck did I end up moderating a panel with these amazing women on it? So, if you want to watch me turn really pink, stutter, and possibly sound like an idiot, then you should definitely come to the panel! If you don't want to see any of that but you DO want to see these amazing authors share their brilliance? Then come on out and be sure to clap and whistle for them. Bonus points if you get to see me laugh enough to snort. ;)

If I manage to not snort on that panel, you'll have another chance to make an idiot of myself. I'm also on a panel with my fabulous agent Rebecca Friedman, awesome publicist KP Simmon, amazing Kevan Lyon, and stupendous author Kristen Proby. We will be discussing Hybrid Publishing teams and how they work. Considering the way the publishing world is changing and shifting this is an important topic.

Oh, oh, oh! Don't miss Avons Night in Paris... Texas. There are going to be a TON of amazing authors signing FREE books. Here's a little idea of what you're in for...

And of course, there is going to be the NEW ADULT COLLEGE PARTY on Tuesday night! Come join us to mingle with readers and authors while playing fun college games, and possible chance to win some awesome prizes! And the authors that will be there!? Well, find out here... https://www.rtconvention.com/event/new-adult-college-game-night


Now, I do have a little bad news... If you want to get signed copies of any of my self-published titles you'll need to order the books a head of time and bring them for me to sign. I apologize for the inconvenience, but the convention isn't set up to handle both indie published and traditional published books for each author (thought they are working on that.) I will have a few of my titles to giveaway, but if there is one you are looking for in particular then you should order it ahead of time and bring it along with you. A link where you can purchase physical copies: HERE. 

I'm really stoked guys and can't wait to see everyone. And if you see me, you should totally ask me for a tiara. I'm bringing some to give out and want to see them being proudly worn during the convention!



For more information check out the RT Convention website. There is SO much happening.


So come see me and don't forget I've cut my hair short, but I think my tiara will give me away. ;)

...About my newest series!
 
 
 
HERE’S THE SCOOP!

The American Royalty Series is coming!!!

 
Things to Expect from The American Royalty Series:
·       Humor and witty banter
·       West Wing meets Scandal meets Suddenly Royal Mashup, anyone?
·       A cameo (or two) from the Royal Series
·       Drama
·       Jake. Jake. Jake.
·       Um….did I mention Jake?

I'm very excited to be working with HarperCollins to bring the American Royalty series to life. I'm very interested in the life of politics--there is so much that goes on behind the scenes that most people never hear about and it intertwines with our daily government and in some ways, affecting everyone. As I was thinking about that fact, Jake and Maddie's story began to take form and I found myself enthralled by the challenges they would face and just what their happy-ever-after would entail, if there could *be* a happy-ever-after.

About Book 1 (Title TBA) in The American Royalty Series:
Color me jaded, but coming home just isn’t the same when you have to go through security before you can see your dad. Don’t get me wrong, everyone had to go through security to see my dad. Even Kings, Queens, celebrities, my step-mother and half-brother we’re given the metal detector treatment. It wasn’t like I was a hooligan being singled out. It’s just part of life when your father is president. Go figure.
Maddie’s father is in his second term as president and she could care less. Being a politician’s child has made her world weary and leery of being manipulated. When she comes home from college for her summer break, she thinks it’s the last time she’ll be in the white house. Her father’s term is almost over and she’ll finally be able to live the life she wanted. What she doesn’t count on is facing her nemesis, Jake Simmon, back from the war. As the son of the Vice President, she had constantly been paired with him for events and during campaign tours. The tabloids loved to speculate about a possible relationship, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Jake was the perfect politician’s son. He always did as he was asked, always smiled, and to her absolute horror always looked dreamy.
In other words, he was her exact opposite.
Jake was finally home, but he couldn’t wait to escape. Instead of searching for peace and quiet after losing his leg in Afghanistan, he was sitting in on campaign meetings and giving interviews. He had never felt so helpless in his life, not even after waking strapped to a table in a blistering hot med tent. His mother was intent on using his brand new disability as a campaign tool. Show off her wounded son so people would find her relatable. The only positive thing he had to focus on was the fact that he would get to see Maddie again, which was pathetic when you considered that they hated each other. She’d always gotten under his skin, throwing caution to the wind and doing what she’d wanted while he had walked the line. In a world where everyone looked at him with sympathy, he knew she wouldn’t hold back. And though he was loathe to admit it, one of his favorite past times was verbally sparring with the spunky brunette. What he isn’t counting on is how much they have both changed over the last two years.
 
I know some people are going to be worried about my other series. Don't be. (Yes, Emily Lamphear, I'm looking at you. lol!) The next Flukes novel, Riptide, is on my schedule, as is the next Assassin book. Switching back and forth keeps me fresh and happy. And happy writers write more. It's not that I don't miss my characters from other series, sometimes it's just the way the schedule works. So hang in there mermaid lovers and fictional assassin lovers. Those books are coming and I'll keep you posted on dates when I have them.
