Off to SDCC 2014

Headed out for SDCC 2014 later today. While I am excited to see Diana Gabaldon and Veronica Roth (not to mention Debra Driza and Lydia Kang, internet writing buds), I am really going for my daughter. This trip happens to be celebrating her 18th b-day! I know, pretty cool right. So she has made our schedule, planned which things are MOST important for her to see.

Now, let's hope we are able to see them. And no, I have NO problem being one of the millions who spends the night in line for Hall H or Ballroom 20 just for the chance that my kidlet can revel in her fandomness. #proudmomofagreatnerd

See you all on the flip slid. And yes, there will be pictures - of course!

First, the winners:Congrats to DORIS who won the ebook of Crux by Julie Reece. A big congrats to BETHANY, the grand prize winner of over 38 books and swag!!!! So fun and such a great way to celebrate the scavenger hunt. If you enjoyed it as much as I, be sure to leave a comment and let me know.

Now, the rest of the summer: The next few weeks are filled with deadlines, Comic Con, birthdays and school stuff. Between it all, I thought I'd get caught up on my book reviews here and on my other blog, An Intense Life. There are so many books I've read lately, ranging from YA to adult to romance to erotica that I would love to share with all of you. Not to mention the countless non-fiction books about gi…

I'm so sorry to see the celebration for Collide's release come to an end. It has been a fun week with all of you. Rest assure that I have MANY MORE releases coming up. Yep, that's right - I have big HUGE plans for the fall and winter. IDK, but all the writing I've been able to do so far this summer has reminded me just how must I NEED to write daily. There is a magic that happens when I make writing a priority - and the result will be more books, more stories, more opportunities to connect with all of you. All FABULOUS things!
