Release Date: Bloodline (Crossroads Academy #3)

Official Cover Coming Soon!I know what you’re thinking… It’s about freaking time! Fair enough. This book has been a long time coming and it’s hard for me to say which is greater, my guilt over the long wait (my family has taken to calling me Jen R.R. Martin – If you’re a GOT fan, you’ll get it) or my excitement to finally share Bloodline with the world!

Oh, get to the point already?

Bloodline will be released January 27th, 2015 and I hope it’s everything you’ve come to expect from Crossroads Academy!

Bloodline (Crossroads Academy #3)

I had so much fun writing this book, but I have to be honest, I’m sorry to see Katia’s story end. She’s a character who dropped into my world and took over with late nights, lots of caffeine, and a whole lot of kick ass attitude. Simply put, she changed my life.

But she’s not the only one.

I’ve been blessed with amazing friends, amazing family, and amazing fans! Your kind words and support over the last couple of years have made all of the difference in my journey, and in Katia’s. The last two years have been busy and my family has faced some significant changes, welcoming new life into the world (Love you Baby Todd!) and celebrating the lives of those who can no longer be here with us (We miss you Dad & Pap Pap!). This book would not be possible without the love and support of my family and friends who put up with my endless plot questions and revisions and who never stopped believing (Journey, anyone?) in me or my dreams! Nor would it be possible without fans like you who’ve kept me on my toes, driving me to finish Katia’s story, and providing words of encouragement along the way. Your endless patience has always been top of mind and appreciated more than you can possibly know!

So to honor the fans and say THANK YOU the best way I know how, I’m giving away ARC ebooks of Bloodline to the first 50 readers who email, message, Tweet, or Facebook me!

Street Team Winner!

THANK YOU so much to everyone who joined the Crossroads Academy Coven and helped spread the word about the CA street team! You guys seriously rocked my face off with your amazing support of Red Dawn! I had to smile when I saw blog comments like ‘I’ve been seeing this book everywhere’ and I know I couldn’t have done it without you!

A lot of eBooks & swag were given away during the Red Dawn tour, but now it’s time to give away a Crossroads Academy prize pack, complete with signed paperback copies of both Crossroads and Red Dawn. And the winner is….

***drum roll***

 Nova Reylin of My Seryniti!

Congratulations, Nova!

The street team giveaway may be over, but it was a great time and I enjoyed getting to meet so many new book bloggers and readers. In fact, I had so much fun, I’m already starting to think about the next event I can sponsor for you guys– my loyal fans!  Stay tuned and happy reading!

Red Dawn: Witty One Liners

Hi Fellow Readers!

I’ve got a special treat for you today! While every post I’ve shared for Red Dawn is special in its own way, today is extra special because it’s also my birthday!

In light of this momentous occasion (Okay, it may only be momentous to me, but I’m going with it!) I’d like to share some of my favorite one liners from Red Dawn, which I’ve aptly dubbed, Witty One Liners! After all, what’s YA without a little snark?

Enjoy!

Witty One Liners

“And here I thought secret romances were supposed to be so much hotter.”

“You know, if you’re going to act like a drill sergeant, you might want to invest in a pair of combat boots because the zebra print stilettos are a little misleading.”

“I don’t kiss losers.”

“Maybe her willingness to provide regular whorgasms free of charge is enough to make him look the other way.”

“I’d much rather be punching something, but to each his own.”

“Even nerds get busy sometimes.”

“I must have died and gone to hell, because I could have sworn you just asked me for help.”

“Touch me again and you’ll wake up a lefty.”

“For the record, I don’t think the ‘no tell motel’ is quite what Katia had in mind when she said ‘anything’.”

“Funny how no one calls when I’m at school behaving myself.”

“At some point you’ve got to talk about boundaries, feelings, and… positions.”

“That chick is like a merry-go-round! Everyone gets a freaking turn!”
