Amazon Children's Publishing (Skyscape) is releasing a YA time travel thriller, THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN, by Meredith McCardle on May 6, 2014. I'm organizing a blog tour for Meredith and THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN, running from May 5 - 23.

You can see the book here on Goodreads. And here on Amazon.

About THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN: Amanda Obermann. Code name Iris.

It’s Testing Day. The day that comes without warning, the day when all juniors and seniors at The Peel Academy undergo a series of intense physical and psychological tests to see if they’re ready to graduate and become government operatives. Amanda and her boyfriend Abe are top students, and they’ve just endured thirty-six hours of testing. But they’re juniors and don’t expect to graduate. That’ll happen next year, when they plan to join the CIA—together.

But when the graduates are announced, the results are shocking. Amanda has been chosen—the first junior in decades. And she receives the opportunity of a lifetime: to join a secret government organization called the Annum Guard and travel through timeto change the course of history. But in order to become the Eighth Guardian in this exclusive group, Amanda must say good-bye to everything—her name, her family, and even Abe—forever.

Who is really behind the Annum Guard? And can she trust them with her life?

Amazon Children's Publishing (Skyscape) is releasing a YA mystery/thriller, KILLING RUBY ROSE, by Jessie Humphries on May 6, 2014. I'm organizing a blog tour for Jessie and KILLING RUBY ROSE, running from May 5 - 30.

You can see the book here on Goodreads. And here on Amazon.

About KILLING RUBY ROSE: In this dark and witty thriller, seventeen-year-old Ruby Rose goes from valedictorian to vigilante, forced to kill a series of infamous criminals while uncovering an explosive family secret.

In sunny southern California, Ruby Rose is known for her killer looks and her killer SAT scores. But ever since her dad, an LAPD SWAT sergeant, died six months ago, she’s also got a few killer secrets.

To cope with her father’s death, Ruby has been trying to stay focused on school (the top spot in her class is on the line) and spending time with friends (her Jimmy Choos and Mahnolo Blahniks are nothing if not loyal), but after months of therapy and more than a few months of pathetic parenting by her mom, District Attorney Jane Rose, Ruby decides to pick up where her dad left off and starts going after the bad guys herself.

But when Ruby ends up killing a murderer in defense of another, she discovers that she’s gone from being the huntress to the hunted. There’s a sick mastermind at play, and he has Ruby in his sights. Ruby must discover who’s using her to implement twisted justice before she ends up changing Valentino red for prison orange.

With a gun named Smith, a talent for martial arts, and a boyfriend with eyes to die for, Ruby is ready to face the worst. And if a girl’s forced to kill, won’t the guilt sit more easily in a pair of Prada peep-toe pumps?

WISH YOU WEREN'T Blog Tour Signups

Middle grade author Sherrie Peterson is releasing her debut novel, WISH YOU WEREN'T, on March 17. I'm organizing a blog tour for Sherrie and WISH YOU WEREN'T, running from March 24 - April 18.

You can see more about the book here on Goodreads.

About WISH YOU WEREN'T: Marten doesn't believe in the power of wishes. None of his have ever come true. His parents ignore him, his little brother is a pain and his family is talking about moving to Texas. Not cool. So when he makes an impulsive wish during a meteor shower, he doesn't expect it to make any difference.

Until his annoying brother disappears.

With the present uncertain and his brother’s future in limbo, Marten finds himself stuck in his past. And if he runs out of time, even wishes might not be enough to save the ones he loves.

HOUSES OF COMMON Blog Tour Sign-ups

HOUSES OF COMMON by Derick William Dalton is out now! I'm organizing a blog tour for this science fiction thriller in the vein of the wildly popular THE ATLANTIS GENE -- running from Monday, March 3 - Friday, March 28, 2014.

Derick has redesigned the cover and back cover blurb to more adequately portray his book. He's worked with a professional cover designer and editor to make his book the best it can be! Please join us in the blog tour for a terrific book!

You can see the book here, on Goodreads. Or here, on Amazon.

About HOUSES OF COMMON: In the 22nd century, pilgrims leave Earth for the nearby planets that terraformers have crafted to meet their needs. Ranyk is a smart-mouthed alien, the best of the world-builders employed by the US government--and he always completes his risky assignments solo, pushing to the deep recesses of space for the good of colonists and to avoid his growing fame.

Until he's handed an on-planet assignment in Ireland, of all places, as an undercover international student of aquaponics. His real plan? To pull scientists and their families out of a country careening toward civil war--and off earth to a world of their own before marital-law lockdown ends their ground-breaking discoveries.

Risking his life is no novelty for Ranyk. He's been battered by asteroids, nearly incinerated in volcanoes, and has out-piloted pirates. But political espionage on Earth is more dangerous that anything he's encountered before, and he's completely ill-equipped for such delicate matters. Now he must figure out who to trust and who to eliminate, or it will mean his freedom, the safety of forty thousand desperate colonists, and the lives of his friends.

Sweetheart of a Deal!

Okay, so I've been doing blog tours, blitzes, and cover reveals on my own for about a year now. It's been really fun, and I've learned a lot. One thing I know is: Everyone wants a deal! So I thought since it's almost Valentine's Day, I'd give you one.

Here it is. Well, there are a lot of options! Ha. Here we go.

1. Book a blog tour with me -- either package A for $150 or package B for $100 -- and I'll pay for a $25 cash giveaway!


2. Book a blog tour with me -- either package A for $150 or package B for $100 -- and I'll do a cover reveal for you FREE. That's a $45 value.


3. Book a book blitz, and I'll pay for half the $50 giveaway. You save $25!


4. Hire me to write your query letter and get the $100 service for 25% off. So you pay $75 instead of $100.

And those are the deals. They will only last for the next 10 days -- until February 14. *Fine print: You book and pay now. Then you can hold onto the blog tour, blitz, query letter service, or cover reveal for up to 1 year, and choose dates when you're ready. These items ARE transferable. So if you want a blog tour, but your friend wants the cover reveal? No problem. Thought you'd have a book to tour, but you don't? Give it to someone who does.

Note: I am proficient and best at YA (any genre), NA (all genres, clean romance, no erotica/steamy stuff) with potential YA crossover, and adult romance (clean, no erotica/steamy stuff). I am NOT super-great at middle grade (though I can try!), or any adult genres besides romance. I have good success booking tours, blitzes, and cover reveals for both traditional and self-published authors/titles in the above genres.
