NINJA GIRL Release Day!

ninja-girl

So today is the big day!  It’s release day for my second book baby, and for some reason, I just want to throw confetti, hand out cookies and say, “It’s a girl!:)

Ahh, I really can’t believe it.

May the Force, Bruce Lee and Taylor Swift be with you, little book!

NINJA GIRL is finally out there.  Bookworms everywhere can read Ash and Snow’s story.  Oh, and I hope they do and love it!  I hope readers find a kindred spirit in tomboy/awkward/still-totally-kickass Snow.  I hope they fall hard and swoon even harder for Ash (like I did <3).  I hope everyone will embrace the girl power, the diversity, the kickassery and, of course, the laughs and the romance.

If this sounds good to you, I would love it if you would give NINJA GIRL a chance :).

Thank you so much to everyone who supported my first book–and thank you to those who asked about my next.  I hope you enjoy this second release and that it gives you all the feels.  As always, if you do read the book, please let me know!  Hearing from readers is truly one of my favorite things <3.

Happy reading (and Happy book birthday, NINJA GIRL!),

Pre-Order & Promotion

I did it, guys!  NINJA GIRL is now available for pre-order!!!  What’s even better?  A few awesome people have already pre-ordered the book, and that just makes me over-the-moon ecstatic :).

If you want more awesome…

ADORKABLE will be available for just $0.99 for the next week!  Yes, that’s right; it’s time for a Kindle Countdown Deal!  I’m really hoping that the promotion will drive more traffic to the upcoming release of NINJA GIRL and make this kickass YA romance more visible.  For whatever reason–fear, nervousness, self-doubt, take your pick–I’ve been reticent about promoting this release.  And it makes me so frustrated will myself.  Ugh.

This is one time when I wish I was less introverted and more scream-it-from-the-rootops-I-LOVE-THIS-BOOK extroverted.  I love Ash.  I love Snow.  I love my second book baby, and I really hope readers will embrace and love it, too <3.

I hope you all have a great week–and I can’t believe NINJA GIRL comes out this Thursday!

Happy reading,

NINJA GIRL Giveaway!

Okay, so a lot of things have happened in the past few days.

Several people helped with the cover reveal of NINJA GIRL last week, and I just gotta say: YOU ALL ROCK!  Thank you so much for your support!  I received some awesome book mail from my Hungarian publisher–which really brightened up my Saturday. <3  I reached my goal of 70 people adding NINJA GIRL to Goodreads pre-release (which is sweeet :)).  And I set up the giveaway below–because of course, we had to have a giveaway to mark the awesome/kickass/splendiferous occasion of NINJA GIRL‘s upcoming release March 30, 2017.

And yes, I have always wanted to use the word “splendiferous” in a sentence.  This seemed like the right time :).

The NINJA GIRL Giveaway will run from March 23 until April 13, and the winner will receive a $25 Amazon gift card!  There are several ways to enter, and that means tons of chances to win!

Now, I’m off to try and add NINJA GIRL on Amazon, hoping for no hiccups and that the process goes smoothly.  I wish you all the best of luck with the giveaway, and I really hope you’ll check out NINJA GIRL when it comes out next Thursday!!! Ahh, can’t believe it’s so close!

Hope you have a great week!

NINJA GIRL cover reveal

Hi everyone!  It’s time for the cover reveal of my YA romance NINJA GIRL :).  It was so much fun to create, and I’m thrilled with how it turned out.  Seriously, I love it!!!  I worked with Stephanie Mooney again, and she did a fantastic job!  Ahhh, I can’t wait to finally share it!

Okay, deep breath…and thank you for being patient while I breathe lol.

Here is…

…your first look…

…at the cover…

…for NINJA GIRL :).

Gah…just…doesn’t it make your eyes smile?

The colors, the fence, the too-cool-for-school “lean” the models have going on ;).  One of my most favorite parts is how it relates to ADORKABLE but still has its own vibe.  They’d look great side by side…sigh.  Here’s the link if you’d like to add NINJA GIRL on Goodreads <3.

Hello Hungary!

Kamuzások, kavarások (the Hungarian version of ADORKABLE) is here!!!  A few days ago, LOL posted some pictures of the book being made, and I just saw this beauty–which of course made my day.  Sally and Becks are making their debut in Hungary, and I am so excited!

Kamuzasok Kavarasok

Sigh…imádom <3 <3 <3 (which means “I love it” in Hungarian; thank you, Tija, for teaching me that one :))

Honestly, I still have trouble believing that a physical, translated copy of my book is going to be available in another country.  So cool and amazing, I can’t even!  In honor of the Hungarian version’s book birthday, here is a song I love for a book I love <3.

I may be “miles from Budapest,” but I hope Hungary welcomes you with open arms, little book!!!  Have a great week, everyone!

Happy reading,

Nerds and Ninjas

The wait is over!  I uploaded the summary to Ash’s book :).  You can finally read what NINJA GIRL, my second soon-to-be-published YA romance, is all about.  I hope you like what you see, and I really hope the book summary makes you want to read Ash’s story–even new readers who haven’t met Ash yet…sigh <3.  And Snow–you finally know her name!  Yayyy!!!  She is seriously cool, you guys.

I did mention that I have a thing for “nerds and ninjas,” right?

Well, here is the proof!

Snow and Ash will have alternating chapters in which we get a sneak peek into their thoughts and emotions.  Pretty cool, right?  I hope so anyway lol!  Also, a quick disclaimer: NINJA GIRL does contain more cursing than ADORKABLE.  If the book were a movie, it would still be rated PG-13, but I just wanted to make sure you are aware.

BUT I do hope you will give this book a chance and that it makes you laugh out loud :).  I hope that you fall in love with Ash and Snow just as hard as you did with Becks and Sally.  I saw the finished cover today, and I absolutely love it, can’t wait for the reveal!

Here is a link if you’d like to add NINJA GIRL to your Goodreads TBR pile.

Annnd it feels awesome to be able to say that!  Hope your week is going well!

Happy reading,
