Publishing News and a Fantastic Fundraiser! (with prizes, people)

Oak trees at my grandmother's house in Napa

Ah, Life, you never bore me.

Wanted to post today about a few things on different fronts.

WRITING: Well, people, I’ll be honest. I haven’t been able to write much lately, which makes me sad and irritable, as my family will probably attest. Between finish editing on The Genius and the Muse, more editing for A Fall of Water, the fourth Elementals book, and moving back to Central California unexpectedly (which is a Good Thing, but has been rather complicated), writing on new projects has been almost non-existent. I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things next month. Until then, my focus is on…

PUBLISHING: Yay! Finally, for those who have been waiting, the release date for The Genius and the Muse will be May 2nd, which is just around the corner. In fact, it’s just a week from today! You can read the very first advanced review for the book over at Twimom101 Book Blog here.

As for A Fall of Water, it is still slated for an early June release, and I’ll be sure to keep you updated on that. A new teaser just posted today over on, so if you’re a fan of the series, you can read that here.

MOST IMPORTANT NEWS: I, along with a BUNCH of other authors, am taking part in a fundraiser for a family who has been hit pretty hard in the last few months. The Evans family has had more than their share of surprises, so I’m joining authors like Jamie McGuire, E.L. James (yes, THAT E.L. James!), Tracey Garvis-Gaves, Kristen Ashley, and so many others in donating signed copies of our books for the mother of all prize packages. For every $10 donated, you are entered to win around FIFTY signed copies from these authors and many others (including me!). Check out author Colleen Hoover’s post about the Evan’s family and the fundraiser here. Spread the news. Tweet it. Facebook it. Spread it on the Kindle boards and other forums. This family can really use the help and this prize pack is beyond amazing.

Hope the rest of your week is great!

Thanks for reading,
