COMING SOON! A blog hop and giveaway in honor of my debut novel, EVER!


In celebration of the fast-approaching and oh-so-exciting release date of my debut novel EVER, I am hosting a ghostly flash fiction BLOG HOP and GIVEAWAY! 

YES! A BLOG HOP!

FLASH FICTION BLOG HOP!

A FLASH FICTION BLOG HOP ABOUT GHOSTS


*Yay ghosts!*


BUT WAIT! There's more! 
THIS IS A FLASH FICTION BLOG HOP ABOUT GHOSTS 
WITH A SUPER AWESOME GIVEAWAY!

*Yay giveaways!* 

As some of you may know, my debut novel is releasing on October 1, 2012! *SQUEE* I am doing a few different things to prepare for this crazy day that I never thought would actually happen! 
*Omg this is happening, isn't it!?*

Aside from a blog tour with author interviews, character interviews, giveaways, etc, I have decided to host a FLASH FICTION BLOG HOP! And well, since its not very FLASHY, seeing as how I'm giving you plenty of time to write it, I should probably change the name, but I don't want to. Its my blog hop, so there. ;-)

So, please stay tuned for more details regarding the first ever
GHOSTS (and the girls who love them!) 
BLOG HOP AND GIVEAWAY! 

I am ironing out the details now, and will be posting the rules and the linky sign up soon. In the mean time, I will give you the back cover blurb of EVER, so you have an idea of what kind of story it is. Your story will need to be a flash fiction piece (no less than 300 words, and no more than 1000 words), inspired by EVER's main theme: Loving a ghost. It can be sweet, scary, sexy, young adult, middle grade, adult, etc.

There will be time to post your stories, time for peer voting, a narrowing down of finalists, and then a time for judging by an awesome panel of judges.

Everyone who enters and participates will be automatically entered to win a signed copy of EVER, but in addition to that, I am putting together a prize pack of other wonderful goodies for the grand prize winner! YAY!

IN THE MEANTIME, please comment below with your thoughts, questions or suggestions!

*ALSO: I am looking for prize package donations (a great way to spread the word about your book or company), and guest judges. Comment below if interested. :-)

THANK YOU!!!
STAY TUNED! 

EVER'S BACK COVER BLURB:

Seventeen-year-old Ever’s love life has been on hold for the past two years. She’s secretly in love with her best friend Frankie, and he’s completely oblivious.

Of course, it doesn't help that he’s dead, and waking up to his ghost every day has made moving on nearly impossible.

Frustrated and desperate for something real, Ever finds herself falling for her hot new neighbor Toby. His relaxed confidence is irresistible, and not just Ever knows it. But falling for Toby comes with a price that throws Ever’s life into a whirlwind of chaos and drama. More than hearts are on the line, and more than Ever will suffer.

Some girls lose their hearts to love.

Some girls lose their minds.

Ever Van Ruysdael could lose her soul.

    1. TALYNN! You just made my day! I can't even begin to tell you what it means to me that you would love one of my characters so much already. I can't even put it into words. I'm honestly just shaking my head as I try to write right now, and all I can say is THANK YOU. THANK YOU x 1,000.

      Thank you for believing in EVER so much. Or well, believing in Frankie. lol ;-)

    2. Hey:)
      I sent you an email!
      You know, I don't know what is was that drew me to Frankie. It think it was the whole secret love with my best friend and she doesn't know it and him encouraging Ever out of the car wreck. He reminded me of Jack on the the Titanic. Knowing he was going to die but pushing Rose to survival without even thinking of himself. And then Frankie is a ghost and now they can never be together. I don't know, but something just touched my heart strings at the bittersweet(ness) of it all.
      So, when is October going to get here??

      And yes, you're disqualified because you are an esteemed judge.
