When I published my first book Unbreakable Love in 2011, I was introduced the world of book bloggers! I’ve decided you guys have the coolest job ever and if I ever stop publishing books, I will definitely start to blog about book!

Two years later, my third book BECOMING BRYN is just about to hit the market. The big pub date is June 15th and like a little kid waiting for their birthday, I’m so excited.

Becoming Bryn is a YA contemporary about a set of twins and what happens when fate gives you opportunity too tempting to pass up.  Here’s the blurb from the back of the book.

For months, Jesse has been envious of her twin sister Bryn and even

had a crush on Bryn’s gorgeous, popular boyfriend, Quinton. When

Jesse awakens from a coma to learn that everyone thinks she IS Bryn,

the option of actually taking over her sister’s life is beyond tempting,

but there’s a downside. She’ll have to give up Ethan, her best friend

and the only person she trusts. Can she actually live as Bryn for the

rest of her life? And if her family and friends found out, would they ever forgive her?

Now comes the fun part and I need your help!!! I only have forty copies from my publisher to hand out for reviews and I still have a few left over. I’m looking for reviewers, especially ones interested in taking part in my two week July blog tour. 

So, come and help me spread the love and at the same time discover Becoming Bryn.  In return, I would love to follow your blog and also do an interview with you about your blog-on my blog. It’s a small way I can say thank you and I DO GENUINELY APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT.

Leave me an email if you want to review Becoming Bryn or even post the cover for cover reveal day on June 1st. Even if you don’t want to get involved, leave a message to let me know who you are and I’ll drop by your site to check it outJ

Bannana Nanna Fo Fanna

Did you ever play the name game when you were little. Everyone would fit their name into the most ridiculous rhyme ever made up, leaving you to wonder did this tradition start in a room full of drunk people?  I played that game. My childhood name sounds like…Angie, Angie, bo banji, bo nanna fanna fo fangi, mi my mo mangy, ANGIE. 

We had loads of fun making fun of our names, but names are actually serious business. They define us. Ever meet a Brittney or Tiffany and you think to yourself, that name just fits! What about a  guy named Mo that works on cars and has grease under his nails all the time? Was he born a grease monkey named Mo or did he grow into his name?  

Yah, names are a big deal and I guess that’s why I’m still struggling to find the perfect name for my next book (publication date June 15, 2013).  So far, here are some of the names we played with to describe Jesse and Brin’s awesome story.

Beautiful Deception

When I woke Up

My Sister’s Life

IN her shoes

What I didn’t know

Life Unraveled

A do over
Reality check

 Last I checked, my publisher and I are top of this problem (at least that is what I tell myself) and at this very moment a mock book cover is well under way with a perfect name. What name will that be, I guess we’ll both find out soonJ
