Before I shut down for the holidays, I have a HOT NEW RELEASE for you from Kristina Springer!
Livvie Peterson thought taking Interpersonal Communications her junior
year would be an easy A. But when the first assignment is given, her
world flips upside down.
Here’s the deal: the class is assigned a
six-week project and is split into three groups— Paparazzi, Tabloid, and
Celebrities. The Paparazzi follow around the Celebrities taking
pictures and grabbing any kind of quotes they can. The Celebrities try
to navigate being tailed on a daily basis. And the Tabloid receives all
the information collected by the Paparazzi and decides what makes the
weekly summary report.
Sounds harmless…and it’s all just pretend anyway,
Livvie is assigned as Paparazzi, and, when she is matched
up with the über-cute Chas Montgomery as her Tabloid boss, she’s pretty
sure things couldn’t get much better. Livvie’s uncanny ability to
capture the Celebrities in compromising photos matched with Chas’s skill
of exaggerating captions and editing the photos make them an
unstoppable team. And the long hours working side by side with Chas
aren’t a bad bonus.
Livvie simultaneously launches an anonymous
blog, leaking the class’ photos and stories on the Internet. Her rising
follower number quickly becomes addicting and she possibly spills too
much information online. Once she finds her own celebrity will she be
able to give it back? And will Chas be gone before she ever has the
chance to find out?
Emil Radle is a dedicated Hitler Youth member. He’s loyal to the Fuehrer
before family, a champion for the cause and fan of the famous
When his friends Moritz and Johann discover a shortwave radio,
everything changes. Now they listen to BBC broadcasts, news reports that
tell both sides. Now they know the truth. The boys band together to
write out the BBC news and covertly distribute flyers throughout their
city. An act of high treason that could have them arrested or...worse.
But when Germany’s losses become immense, even their greatest resistance
can’t prevent them from being sent to the eastern front.
The thrilling conclusion to the My Alien Romance Series
interstellar relationship has finally been sealed in the eyes of the
human world, so now she can move on to her next step: college.
With Ace by her side and a new piece of jewelry on her finger, she thinks she is ready for anything. Well, almost anything.
Her new roommate holds a dangerous link to her past that Alex isn't
sure if she can handle. Then there is the whole alien fiancé thing.
Every time she tries to get closer to Ace, he seems to pull further
away. Top that off with a full summer class load and a few more alien
attacks and it’s just another day for Alex.
Except this time she isn’t sure if marrying an alien will be the happy ending she’s hoping for.
Yay! A post! Seriously, blogging hasn't been much of a priority lately. Too much going on with all the holidays and revisions. I'll probably clock out in another week or two (as I'm sure you will), but I promise to warn you in advance. :) In the meantime, I have some links to share! 1. Annie R. Allen posted this on Sunday, which has been getting a lot of attention. It's kind of a "state of the union address" for indies, and there are many MANY useful links. I'll admit that the whole indie landscape has changed from when I first self-published almost two years ago, but we knew going into it that it was going to take some time to "sort everything out." I still believe that any rights an author can retain is a good thing. I still believe that any control an author can keep related to his or her work(s) is a good thing. BUT--things *are* changing, and it's always good to be informed. I'll also say that I don't agree 100% with everything in this post, but it's a great overview of what's happening in the indie world. Take what you need, and leave the rest. 2. Next, the ever-fabulous Susan Kaye Quinn discusses Simon and Schuster's new "self pub program" and why you should avoid it. 3. Finally, Stacey Wallace Benefiel wrote a great blog about tackling that second novel when the whole world is chiming in. It's about losing yourself and deadlines and tuning out reviewers--something we can all relate to, I think. Before I go, I'm still desperate for likes on my Amazon pages. I promised a deleted scene as a reward. Details are here! I'll be back Friday with some hot new releases!
