Happy Book Birthday to Renee Collins and RELIC!

I won't go into detail here because I did a big post about it on Friday the Thirteeners today with MANY hot cowboys and really...how can anything I post here compete with that?

So I'll just give you the link. :) Enjoy...and come celebrate with Renee.

Deep Breaths...

My schedule for the next month, you guys, it is brutal. If you come around in October and find a bunch of gifs like this:

Or this:

Then it may be too late for me, save yourselves...

I will be at LonestarCon (WorldCon) in San Antonio from 8/28 - 9/4. I'll be doing a signing and generally hanging out, so if you're in the area, come chat.

Then I'm going to Colorado for an uber awesome (and more than a little intimidating) author retreat for 5 days.

Then I'm going on a family trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for 5 days.

And then I'm going to Wordstock in Portland, OR on the first weekend of October.

All of this while I'm getting together a proposal for a new book, and doing revisions on two other books...


I will be popping in and out and there will be fb and instagram pics/tweets from my various locations, so don't miss me too hard. But when October hits and I'm back home, hopefully with my sanity still intact, I would like to be greeted with something like this...

Okay? :)

Happy Book Birthday to BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA & April Tucholke!

I am SO happy today to celebrate the release of an amazing book by my dear friend, April Tucholke!

Happy Book Birthday, Devil!

*pets* *Stares at the pretty*

The book is amazing. Possibly one of my favorites of the entire year. It's dark and gothic and the setting comes to life in so many ways. This book guys...this book is awesome. I love Violet. She is so strange and somehow familiar at the same time. Above all, she is different than every other character out there and I love her entire vibe.

Here is the blurb from Devil's page on Goodreads:

You stop fearing the devil when you’re holding his hand…

Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town…until River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more? Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery...who makes you want to kiss back. Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.

Blending faded decadence and the thrilling dread of gothic horror, April Genevieve Tucholke weaves a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance, as gorgeously told as it is terrifying—a debut to watch.

Seriously, it's amazing. I loved this book and you will, too.

Here you can order a shiny lovely copy for your very own!

And one more time...

Happy Book Birthday, April! I'm so happy for you! You and your book are going to blow people away and leave them BEGGING for more!

My News!

Some of you may have heard this already if you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, but I wanted to post it here also because I'm still so freaking excited about it that I'm floating over here...very, VERY dancey.


Last week, I just heard from my publisher that INSOMNIA is going back to press (meaning the demand is high and they need to print additional books) for the THIRD TIME already! 

He also said that INSOMNIA is currently the #1 bestselling book at my imprint (Flux) and the #2 at the entire Llewellyn publishing house! 

I'm beyond thrilled. I hoped the book sales would be okay, but to come out this well as a debut is just mind-blowing. I'm just... I can't even articulate how excited I am!! Look at the gif above to see a visual representation. ;-)

Thank you so much to everyone who has helped INSOMNIA do so well! Your support means everything to me! I love you all! I have SO. Many. Feels!

And remember to go enter the PARANOIA Makes Me Paranoid Giveaway! Because book #2 guys...it's going to be epic.
