    It’s fall, you guys! My favorite of the four seasons.

    Pumpkin-spiced everything and hay rides and damp chilly mornings. Sweaters and boots and skinny jeans that aren’t quite warm enough. Fingerless gloves with a snag in the seam–a snag that always reminds you of that trip to the apple farm and your clumsy attempt to climb the squat little apple tree.

    Ahhh! Fall! My absolute favorite.

    It’s still too warm here in Northern California to feel properly like fall, but I thought I’d speed things along with a fun little giveaway.

    My favorite social media platform of late has been Instagram, so you’ll have to hop over there to participate. But, PLEASE DO! All you need is an Instagram account and the entry is as easy as pie.

    And spread the word, will you? I had some fantastic Angel Eyes mugs made specifically for the occasion and a gorgeous necklace with book cover charms. And of course, I’m giving away books! Because fall just would not be fall without the books.

    So, let’s play! Find me on Instagram and #FallForAngelEyes!

    Angel-Eyes-eBook-Sale-GraphicHey all! It has been FOREVER since I blogged here. My apologies but I’ve been working on something big and bright and all sorts of exciting. I’m hoping to share it with you soon. Fingers crossed, everyone!

    While I haven’t been blogging here much, I’ve been doing all sorts of gabbing on the Go Teen Writers website. The fabulous Stephanie Morrill and Jill Williamson are really the mad scientists over there, but they let me chime in on Fridays with tips and tricks and all sorts of inspiration. You should swing by sometime and join the conversation. We’re a friendly bunch and are always on the lookout for writerly souls to chat with.

    Today, I thought I’d pass along something fun. Angel Eyes is on sale right now. $1.99 at just about every e-book retailer I can dig up (Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo). The sale ends on 5/25, I believe, and I’d love a little help passing the word. If you’ve considered giving my books a try, I can’t think of a better time to start!

    As always, I’m active on social media, so feel free to drop in and say hello. My favorites are FB, Twitter and Instagram. And I dabble a bit on Pinterest. It’s a time suck, but goodness, it’s so pretty. 😉

    Alrighty! I’ll go now. Friday night means pizza at our place. And I NEVER miss out on pizza.

    Talk soon, friends.

    Clive Staples AwardHave you heard about the Clive Staples Award? One of my favorite blogs gives it away and they’re asking for a little help spreading the word. So, that’s what I’m doing today. Spreading the word.

    I think the easiest way for me to do that is to share part of the email they sent to me:

    The Clive Staples Award for Christian Speculative Fiction has been revived, with Speculative Faith hosting it . . . We need readers to know about the award and their opportunity to vote, but we also need to communicate the need to honor good writing, not just popular authors. To achieve this, we’ve put a minimal requirement on voters: they must have read at least two of the nominations. I’ve (Becky) also written several posts at Speculative Faith (see links below) explaining the standards we want readers to use when voting.

    My request is that you would help your readers know about CSA and our goals, their opportunity to vote, and the requirements to do so. Without voters, a readers’ choice award is not possible. But to appeal to you to bring in readers, risks the possibility of the award devolving to a popularity contest. In reality, whether this award works depends on how widely we can spread the word and how determined the readers are to vote for quality stories. Whatever you can do to help achieve this would be greatly appreciated!

    Below is a list of the books that have been nominated and the links to the Spec Faith articles about the award.

    Congratulations on your book(s) being included! And thank you for any help you can give in notifying readers about the award.

    Obviously, Angel Eyes has been nominated (THANK YOU!) or Spec Faith wouldn’t have asked me to spread the word. But at this point, they’re wanting to make sure you know who the nominees are so you can be sure to read at least two of the selections before voting begins. I’ve read a handful of these, you guys, and they’re fabulous. This is, at the very least, a great go-to list for your Christian Speculative Fiction needs. Read a few and then be sure to vote for your favorite. Keep an eye on my Facebook page and I’ll let you know when the voting begins.

    Happy summer, friends!

    You guys! After being attacked by malware, blacklisted, and declared dead, my website LIVES! We had to move the poor gal to another server, so my apologies for the long delay.

    To celebrate (and to entice you back), I thought I’d do a giveaway. One lucky winner will receive SIX books. Angel Eyes will be included, of course, and since I have lots of snarky words for the virus that kept attacking my site, the other books will feature deliciously snarky voices I’ve loved this past year.

    The snark-filled gift pack will include trade paperback copies of:

    Yesterday marked the end of the second Angel Eyes blog tour. The first was hosted by YA Bound and the second, by LitFuse.

    Both experiences were fabulous ones and I can’t thank the bloggers and the coordinators enough for being so awesome.

    It takes time and energy to read and review books. It takes guts to share your thoughts with the world, and I appreciate that bravery more than I can say.

    If you weren’t able to stop by my author chat last night, fear not! You can catch up here. There’s also a fun sneak peek of Broken Wings, including the cover and an unofficial summary. Be warned! If you haven’t read Angel Eyes, the synopsis for Broken Wings will definitely spoil some things for you.

    AND, if you’re dying to know who won that NOOK Color, be sure to check this page. All the lucky winners are listed.

    Again, I can’t thank you all enough for being part of the Angel Eyes launch. It’s been a crazy whirlwind of an adventure and I’m so glad you jumped on for the ride.

    God bless, friends!
