Dreaming Awake Release Day!

One of my favorite things about being a writer is Release second full length novel, Dreaming Awake, releases today. It's the sequel to Falling Under and I know some of you have been waiting for this one...I hope you enjoy it.

Another favorite thing about being a writer is being a reader. I love the reading community a lot and it always makes me happy when I can recommend a new book or author to someone and they love it as much as I do. One author who always delivers for me is Sarah Ockler. I devoured her first two books, Twenty Boy Summer and Fixing Delilah. When I found out she also has a new release today, I thought I'd celebrate by doing a giveaway of one her newest, Bittersweet.

To be chosen as the winner, you need only to reply to this blog post (my blog is fed to Goodreads, Blogger, and Facebook, so I will count all responses as valid on those platforms) with a reading recommendation for me. Who knocked your socks off recently? It doesn't have to be YA...I'm open to trying new genres too. I'll count all responses received by noon on Friday. (Pacific Time)

Codename's getting attention!

Have you read Codename: Dancer? It was nominated for a 2011 Cybil Award in the Young Adult Fiction category by the Children's and Young Adult Bloggers Literary Awards!!!

I'm ridiculously excited to have been nominated, but I'm certainly not writing my acceptance speech. Looking at the list of the other books nominated, I'm against some VERY heavy-hitters, and fully don't expect to advance any farther. But it's such a huge honor to have been recognized. Yay!

Also super cool is that the book was named an Indie Hot Pick by Romantic Times Magazine in the December 2011 issue. Whoohoo! How cool is that?

So grab your copy today. RT says it's hot. What's not to like?
