An Amazing Day!

This is been an amazing, wonderful, very good day! IN addition to writing almost 1,500 words on Maelstrom, I have also been having a blast being a part of both Ali's Bookshelf and What's Beyond Forks!

First off, these ladies both left wonderful reviews of Convergence that has had me hopping in my seat and smiling so hard my cheeks ache!

Ali's Blog said "Oh my... Convergence is absolutely one of the best books I've read in a long time. I couldn't get enough of this Angel~tastic book. I love a book when it pulls me in and makes me fall for the main character, one that seems so real, I love a story that seems as if its a movie reel being played out before me, Convergence does just that." To read the rest, CLICK HERE

Beyond Forks thought "Convergence was a very hard book to put down. I loved seeing angels portrayed with such loyalty and strength. This is how I picture Angels to be.:" Click Here for the rest of the review!

I also did guest posts for both.

Beyond Forks (I wax poetic about music and my writing playlists)

What's Beyond Forks did a great interview with me:

And both blogs are doing Giveaways!

Bloggers and Interviews, and Giveaways, OH MY!

Bloggers, and interviews, and giveaways, oh my! I’m off to see the bloggers, the awesome bloggers of YA lit! I cannot wait to get started.

First off, I will be chatting with the ladies of the Mystical Lit Lounge tomorrow on Skype. This podcast won’t post for a few days afterward, but I’m really looking forward to sitting down with Shannon and Kim again to chat about Induction! http://mysticallitlounge.com/

Then Wednesday is double trouble giveaway day.

At Ali’s Bookshelf a review of Convergence will post along with a guest blog by yours truly and an ebook giveaway opportunity will head your way. In my blog post I wax poetic about overactive imaginations and getting a little physical. http://alisbookshelfreviews.blogspot.com/

Meanwhile, over at What’s Beyond Forks? you’ll get another chance to win an ebook, read an interview with me about my writing, and get another review. http://whatsbeyondforks.blogspot.com/

I’m really looking forward to the rest of this week. I hope you all get a chance to drop in and check out the blogs on Wednesday and I’ll be sure to post again and let you all know when the podcast interview posts as well. In the meantime, I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving and are already having a fun Christmas Holiday windup. Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday…no matter how down I am, something about the spirit of the season…the lights, and the music, and just the peace that I feel during this time of year…they all seem to make me feel so much better. I hope you find the same blessings amongst the chaos that also accompanies the season as we fight to find the perfect gifts and make it to 1001 events, because at the end of the day, this season is really about peace and love. Best wishes to all and here’s hoping to gifts of inspiration and high word counts for the rest of the season!!!

Giving Thanks for YOU!

Over here in the states, tomorrow is a holiday dedicated to giving Thanks. I have so many things to be thankful for...great kids, a loving family, all of the blessings God has provided me in this life, and even all the hard stuff are still blessings in their own way. I could go on all day, but right now I really want to take a moment to show my gratitude to all of you who read my stories, buy my books, and take the time to say hi and hear what I have to say. If it weren't for all of you, some of the best blessings that have come out of 2011 would never have happened, because without wonderful readers who take the time to enter the world we create, we authors would be absolutely superfluous! Yep...without you, we would just be a group of crazy people, talking to ourselves and typing away for the benefit of our eyes only. So thank you kind and gentle readers for all of your wonderful support. As I sit down and think of all of the things that I am thankful for with my family tomorrow afternoon, you will all be close to my heart and heavy on my mind.
