I tried to give myself a few days before blogging about this, because, you know, the last thing I wanted to do was spam a million exclamation points and words in caps all over the internet like a wildly over-exaggerated 10 year old discovering a keyboard for the first time.

Emphasis on the word 'tried' up above.

So I've got one hell of a huge whopper of sweet and sassy, super short but jam-packed awesome news.

I'm working on a publishing contract with Glass House. As in, signing a book deal. As in, signing MULTIPLE books. This deserves a Supernatural gif.


Two secret projects I've been expanding on are up for the contract, and while I can't say which ones, I can say that one is a YA Fantasy, and the other is a YA Sci-Fi/Dystopian. As long as no major hiccups happen down the road, you'll get to see these babies in 2015, which is SQUEE WORTHY! 

But wait, you ask, what about all your other stuff? The final Illumine novel (that still has no name), and your debut A Shard of Ice, and Unwanted? 

Those are all still set for their release dates, and are all still being self-published by me. GHP and I both agreed it would be best to keep those in my hands while giving them some of the top secret stuff I've been hoarding in my house like... well a hoarder. 

So Unwanted will still be out in July (ermahgosh, nerves) and the last Illumine novel AND A Shard of Ice will arrive in 2014. 

But until then, it's off to the writing hole for me. Only this time, I've got one hell of a grin plastered on my face. 

Ladies and gents, a'this gal is getting her Cinderella moment, her dream come true. <3

It's been a few days since the release of ETHEREAL, and as much as I want to stay focused on one thing at a time, I can't help but want to get the word out of the winning cover to A SHARD OF ICE! I finally will be able to share the winning cover, full blurb, AND a teaser that will probably have you sobbing for the wait for April 2014.

I'm a tease, I know. ;)

The cover reveal for A SHARD OF ICE is scheduled for... dun dun dun, April 11th, 2013! Also known as my birthday, also known as an awesome day, also known as...

Well, I can't say all of it. That would ruin the fun of the secret you'll all get to read with the cover reveal. Mwahahaha-ha.

Want to take part in the cover reveal and see it before everyone else?
Here's how:

*You MUST fill out this form before April 9th, 11:59PM EST!
*Facebook pages (must be book related, cannot be personal profiles) can participate as well. You do not need a blog to participate in the cover reveal.

Everyone who participates in the cover reveal for A Shard of Ice will be entered into a drawing for an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of A Shard of Ice in paperback. Winners will be selected randomly. 

A lot of you have been asking just what A Shard of Ice is about, and have been wanting to know the details. While I can't break down every inch of the book for you, I can say it's probably my favorite book out of everything I've written so far. Lilix has been near and dear to my heart for years now, and now you all finally get to step into her world. 

Come on, April, get here faster!
