No biggie, really, I mean it’s my third novel, so …. AAAAAHH! Seriously! This is happening, people. THE BOYFRIEND WHISPERER is finally out in the world where everyone can read it.
I am super excited and super nervous and I can’t wait for you all to meet Lexi and Chris, and also Abi and Briggsy and all the other characters who have been occupying my head space for the past two years. I hope you love them as much as I do.
THE BOYFRIEND WHISPERER is about a high school basketball star named Alexis Malloy who also happens to be an entrepreneur. She is founder, president, and CEO of Boyfriend Whisperer Enterprises — in other words, an undercover Cupid for hire. Awesome, right? Except as Lexi says, “Deep down, I know the truth. I’m a fake, an imposter, an emperor with no clothes. Because when it comes to whispering my own crush, I’m a total fail. Stuck in the friend zone with no clue how to escape.”
Lexi has been best friends with Chris Broder since the third grade, and he doesn’t even seem to think of her as a girl, much less girlfriend material. So when pretty, flirty cheerleader Lindsay LaRouche hires Lexi to whisper Chris for her, she has to make a choice between her business (and Chris’s happiness) and her own heart’s desires.
Check it out! The Kindle version is available now on Amazon. UPDATE: The paperback is available at that link also! xoxoxo
It’s happening, folks! THE BOYFRIEND WHISPERER will make its debut on November 15! I am so excited and nervous. An author can never be sure what readers’ reactions will be.
One thing I am certain of, though, is that everyone will LOVE the cover. Once again, the staff at Swoon Romance have outdone themselves and blessed me with a gorgeous cover. I cannot wait for you all to see it!
Speaking of which, if you have a blog and want to help with the cover reveal, (and get to see it a few days before everyone else), I would love it if you would sign up for the cover reveal tour. This baby is going to pretty up your page, I promise!
The cover reveal takes place October 13, i.e., 19 days from now, not that I’m counting!! To participate, visit the XPress Book Tours sign up page. Thank you!
Hard to believe I’m posting this. It’s the type of news I’ve seen other authors announce in the past, but I never thought I’d be one of them. Actually, I’ll let the announcement in Publishers Marketplace speak for itself:
So … yay! Very excited to be working with Swoon Romance YA for my next three titles!
My brief trip this weekend to the Romance Writers of America 2015 Annual Convention in New York was a blast! It’s always so much fun to connect with my tribe: fellow writers, and especially fellow YA romance writers. Truly the nicest people on the face of the earth.
The location of the event was awesome. Here is a shot of the view from my hotel room:
Yes, that’s Broadway down there. Bright lights, big city, and basically fun, fun, fun central. A horrible spot for a hotel room if you actually want to sleep, but lucky for me, sleep was not high on my priority list.
Before the event, I met up with two dear friends, fabulous YA author Lisa Amowitz and rock star middle-grade author Kate Chell Milford, for a 3.5-hour lunch at O’Lunney’s Irish Pub. Caught up on a bunch of the latest publishing world gossip and had the most AMAZING hard pear cider. I highly recommend it if you’re in that neighborhood. Many thanks to Lisa (on the left) for her mad selfie-taking skills. Can’t you tell she’s an artist by the way she tilted the angle just so?
Next it was on to the YARWA “Evening of YA.” What do you get when you put about 90 YA romance authors in a room together? Lots of estrogen. And beautiful smiles. And laughter. And did I mention the niceness? So, yeah, a very fun night.
Capped off with:
Yay! My third book (which does not yet have a firm publication date), THE BOYFRIEND WHISPERER, won first place in the YARWA Rosemary Award for Contemporary Fiction.
I was so thrilled, and this vote of confidence for the manuscript makes me so excited to finish and polish it up so I can share it with the world!
Coming up in my next post: EM & EM cover reveal excitement.
