What's Up Wedensday

I haven't blogged in so long I decided to write a post about what I've been up to.

I have a book coming out in 6 days! 6 days! Can you believe it? And it's so pretty....


I wrote this book with the amazing Cassie Mae. It was such a fun experience. Next week, I'll talk about how we did it. But for now here's the blurb:

Tyler Koontz is Trojan gold all the way. There’s nowhere he loves to be more than on the football field.

Sam Nolan is Skyhawk red born and raised. With her mom's depression problem and her dad's recent death, she lives for her little brother who is a big football fanatic.

There’s one rule in this town...

Trojans and Skyhawks don’t date. EVER.

So when Tyler and Sam fall fast and hard for each other, what are they to do? Keep it a secret of course.

The problem is in a town this small, secrets don’t stay secret for long.


Right now it's on pre-sale at Amazon.

I love this book so much. It's a modern day Romeo and Juliet retelling, but with a happy ending. I can't wait for everyone to read it and then at the same time I'm scared for everyone to read it. I hope they like it.

I guess we'll see... In a week!!!

One Wish Away- Cover Reveal

One Wish Away
Release Date: 11/11/14
Bloomsbury Spark

Book Summary:
Be careful what you wish for…

Lyra has always been ahead of the curve. Top of her class in school, a budding astronomer, and with a best friend like Darren she barely has time to miss the mother who abandoned her family years ago. She's too busy planning to follow in her father's footsteps, and to become the youngest astronomer at Space Exploration and Discovery.

When a star goes missing Lyra is determined to get to the bottom of it only to discover her braniac dad is the mastermind of a top-secret government experiment. They promise to build a perfect world, one galaxy at a time, but with every tweak of the present, a bit more of the future starts to crumble.

Lyra has to go undercover to reveal the truth and let humanity decide if the consequences are worth more than wishing on a star.

About the Author
Eventually the day came when the voices in Kelley Lynn’s head were more insistent then her engineering professor’s. So instead of turning to her Thermodynamics book, Kelley brought up a blank page on her computer screen and wrote. Somewhere along the way she became a Young Adult author.

Kelley was born and raised a Midwestern girl. She’s not afraid to sweat and fills her free time with softball, soccer and volleyball. (Though you probably don’t want her on your volleyball team.) She occasionally makes guest appearances as a female vocalist for area bands. Music plays a large role in her writing process as well as the characters and plot lines within her stories.

You can find Kelley hanging out at her blog, titled in her name. Kelley is a member of the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators.

(Once) Again Blog Tour

Theresa Paolo's follow up book to (Never) Again, (Once) Again, comes out next week. Congrats to Theresa! 

Me, being the lucky person that I am, got to read this wonderful book ahead of time. And I'll warn you, once I picked it up I could not put it down. You feel for the struggle that the characters are going through, both of them having to get past horrible things that have happened to them, and you root for them to be together. I loved this book so much. It's definitely worth the read. You'll laugh, cry, and cheer for Kat and Josh.





Josh will have to reconcile his past…

In order to make Kat his future.

After surviving a real-life nightmare, Josh Wagner is sent home from his dream college on crutches. Bedridden and tormented by flashbacks, he’s just seen his world shattered and his baseball scholarship go up in smoke. Josh’s family hires a health aide to help take care of him, but when he opens the door, the last person he expects to see is his biggest regret…

Katherine Singleton is the only girl Josh has ever loved. Now, even though she’s only taking care of him because it’s her job, Josh is determined to win her back. But Kat had to move on after their breakup two years ago, and despite her feelings for Josh, a lot has happened since he left…

When Kat’s past comes back to haunt her, Josh decides it’s his turn to take care of her. But protecting her—and redeeming himself—will put Josh in the line of fire again. Will he survive this time?
