I’m excited for this! My favorite debut YA novel of the year, Compulsion by Martina Boone, comes out October 28th! Martina has asked me to take part in a couple of the stops on the Compelling Reads tour, and I’m glad to be able to attend two in Arlington, Virginia and one in Bethesda, Maryland. Info can be found on my “Events” tab above or by visiting the Compelling Reads website.
A fun tour announcement was drawn up on Hypable if you’re interested, with quotes from many of the tour authors and more information, as well.
Moments ago, I finished a gigantic revision of my new book, Sweet Temptation. For those of you who haven’t heard, this book is the entire Sweet trilogy from Kaidan Rowe’s point of view – it’s a companion novel. It was my toughest book yet.

I won’t lie. I’m always nervous when a book comes out, but I’ve never been this nervous. Firstly because this book is a bit different for me, and secondly because YA fantasy does not always do well in the self-published market. Many in the publishing world say paranormal is dead and publishers are burnt out on magical realism. For a reader and writer like me who thrives on non-contemp worlds, this is saddening. But I know I’m not alone. I know a lot of you still crave paranormal and urban fantasy as I do, however, the fact of the matter is that contemporary is what’s selling most in the independent publishing world. So, yeah.
