So, since every book has to have one, I thought I’d post the playlist to The Unearthly .

Book Giveaway: Dan Rix’s Entanglement

Remember how I mentioned free stuff the other day? Well today I’m raffling off a Kindle copy of Dan Rix’s YA novel, Entanglement . This is an awesome, fast-paced read that will keep you on the edge of your seats, and look at that cover! Isn’t it gorgeous? Scroll down to enter the giveaway! Here’s the book’s description: In a world like ours, humans are born in pairs. When a newborn boy takes his first breath in the coastal town of Tularosa, the exact time is noted, recorded in the Registry, and later compared to the birth times of other newborns around the globe. There will be one identical match—his half. They will meet on their eighteenth birthday and they will spend their lives together. Except this time, there is no match. Hotheaded heartthrob Aaron Harper is scheduled to meet his half in twenty-nine days, and he doesn’t buy a word of that entanglement crap. So what if he and his half were born the same day and share a spooky psychic connection? Big deal. After breaki

At Work on The Coveted

So, guess what I’m working on? The Coveted ! I had this whole elaborate plan to publish The Vanishing Girl before The Coveted , but damn I’ve got some enthusiastic paranormal romance readers! :)  I’ve received so many requests (*cough*demands*cough*) from you all—some pleading, some downright pissed off—that I release the sequel sooner than planned. And, well, you’ve all gotten me so excited about Gabrielle and Andre (as well as Oliver, Leanne, and Caleb) that I’ve been prioritizing The Coveted . Peer pressure really does work. ;) Still, I can’t promise that I’ll be able to work my magic before 2014 rolls around. But, this does mean that I’ll have excerpts to share in the coming months as well as a cover reveal! This also means that I will need readers willing to read pre-released copies of The Coveted and post reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and/or their blog.  Interested? I have a mailing list on the upper right-hand side of this blog. This is where I’ll be sharing a

Broken Symmetry—A Must Read

I don’t know about a lot of you, but it’s difficult for me to pick out awesome books to read. Not that there aren’t oodles and oodles out there, but finding them can be a challenge. But when you finally come across a really fantastic book, the wait is totally worth it. Today marks the release date of Broken Symmetry , Dan Rix’s new novel. Oh my heavens, this is one of those fantastic books! And I swear I say that as a reader and an editor, not as a significant other; this is a must-read.  Here’s the book’s description, and below that, my extremely professional (*cough*) review: Broken Symmetry Dan Rix Eleven months after the father of sixteen-year-old Blaire Adams vanished without a trace, he's found wandering outside The Scripps Research Institute vomiting blood and speaking gibberish, his sole possession a worn leather diary filled with an unrecognizable language. He has a message for her. As he dies in her arms, he claims he never vanished.  She  vanished.
