New Year's Blog Hop - A new book for a new year!

Brought to you by the awesome Carrie-Ann's Blog-hops!


It's another year over! Can you believe it? Well, we authors, readers, and bloggers sure can't. And to celebrate the New Year with a bang, we're going crazy and sending out so many prizes, fun parties, experiences, and other goodies, that it's a bit scary. Each author has a favorite New Year memory, book, idea, or way to party and we're going to show you! 

And while we do that, we are EACH doing a giveaway. Yep. There will be over 200 giveaways on each blog hosted by that Author or Blogger.


But that's not all....


We have THREE grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!


Now what are those GRAND prizes?

1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $300 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, 50+ bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, pens, coffee cozies, and more!


Saying goodbye to 2012, but not to the connections I've made this year ...  

Personally, 2012 has been an amazing year for me as a writer. Not only was I lucky enough to sign a publishing contract and publish my debut novel, EVER, in September, but I have made so many friends in the writing world it's not even funny. 

The true blessings of 2012 are the new connections I've made with all of you - my friends, critique partners, readers, writers and reviewers. You've all made this experience so overwhelming and full of love, that I am forever grateful for your presence in my life, however big or small it has been. 

On that note, I especially want to mention my two main girls. I can't imagine not having my critique partner, Tamara Mataya (aka. Feaky Snucker, aka my #1), or my editor, Krystal Wade, in my corner. Without them, I'd have given up writing a long time ago. 

I love you girls. 

Now, onto the giveaway, right!? 

Because Carrie Ann has put together THREE Grand Prizes, I have decided to giveaway THREE e-copies of my book EVER! So if you're looking for a new book for a new year, or maybe you've received a new e-reader for the Holidays and are looking to fill it, now's your chance! 

All you have to do is enter using the Rafflecopter below!

EVER 
THE EVER TRILOGY, Book One


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.


WHERE TO BUY: 
Amazon
Barnes & Noble
Kobo

I want to be sure to wish all of you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year! 

Make each day of 2013 better than the one before, and always strive to be a better person than you were yesterday! 

Oh, and keep on reading! 

* XOXO *

Now, while you're nursing that NYE hangover, add some fun to this first day of 2013 by hopping around to check out these other amazing giveaways!

  14. We are very low key around our house. We have friends over, the kids play, the adults play board games and try new drinks. Lots of food, laughter, and fun. Not to mention, the doggy gets lots of attention from everyone.

    Happy New Year.
