News and an ARC giveaway. My ARC!

 You see I've been silent lately. Well, if you even noticed, I appreciate it. If you haven't, no hard feelings. I wouldn't have noticed either if I were you.

But I've been very busy putting the final touches on my manuscript and gearing up for the launch. Final proofs are set to come back this week for a last chance review before it goes to the printer. Once my editor and I sign off on the proofs, a limited number of review copies will be printed. How would you like to win one of those review copies? (I thought you might be interested.)

Here's the deal. The official release of DREAM GIRL is in November. In order to give everyone a sample of S.J. while you're waiting, I'm making my YA short story, KISS OF DEATH, free from Amazon this Friday and Saturday, June 28-29. Click here to get your copy.

Below, you will find a lovely little Rafflecopter that shows what you can do for your chance to win the DREAM GIRL ARC. (advance reader copy)

For 10 chances to win, you must write an honest review of KISS OF DEATH on Amazon and/or GoodReads.

For a bonus entry, you can 'like' my YA writing persona on Facebook. And for another bonus entry, you can 'like' my publisher's FB page.

The giveaway will run from Friday, June 28-Saturday July 6, 2013.  DREAM GIRL ARCs should be available around mid-July. I'll coordinate with the winner when their book is ready. I'll even autograph it, if you'd like. 

Ridiculously easy, don't you think?

While we're at it, I can finally reveal the DREAM GIRL cover! This is what you'll be winning. I think it's absolutely gorgeous. My thanks to the wonderfully talented Phatpuppy Art on the cover design. I LOVE it!

  1. Wow, it's moving along so quickly! The cover looks great. I'm just now realizing you're using a pen name; did you decide on this to distinguish your picture book author self from your older novel author self?

    1. Thanks, Kristin. And congrats on your recent awesome news too! 2013 is a great year for MichKids.

      I have a friend who writes across genres, using one name, and have witnessed the frustration this can cause. Actors get typecast but it happens to authors too. My YA stuff has some darkness in it so I did want to differentiate between the sunshine and smiles of my work for younger children and my YA work. It's also good fun to have different, distinct, personas. Although this blog mixes them all up, there is an all new website in the works.
