Foreplay by Sophie Jordan

Sophie Jordan’s New Adult novel FOREPLAY will be hitting shelves tomorrow. Are you ready to head over and grab your copy? Being a lover of the New Adult genre myself, I am so incredibly excited for what I know will be an excellent new addition! Oh and guess what? I’ve got the book trailer for you!

Here’s a little snippet about the book:

Before she goes after the life she’s always wanted, she’s about to find the one she needs.

Pepper has been hopelessly in love with her best friend’s brother, Hunter, for like ever. He’s the key to everything she’s always craved: security, stability, family. But she needs Hunter to notice her as more than just a friend. Even though she’s kissed exactly one guy, she has just the plan to go from novice to rock star in the bedroom—take a few pointers from someone who knows what he’s doing.

Her college roommates have the perfect teacher in mind. But bartender Reece is nothing like the player Pepper expects. Yes, he’s beyond gorgeous, but he’s also dangerous, deep—with a troubled past. Soon what started as lessons in attraction are turning both their worlds around, and showing just what can happen when you go past foreplay and get to what’s real…

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to read this! Interested in more books by Sophie? Check them out at her website:

The one about New Adult

So a while back I was in the gym shower thinking about how my writing wasn’t quite YA, but wasn’t quite fiction for adults either and I began to wonder: where the heck would I fit in? As I lathered, rinsed and maybe repeated, though i’m not sure because my focus started wandering to different genres and wouldn’t it be great if there was something in between? 

Well…hello there New Adult! When I finally discovered books that are fitting into this “new” category, I quickly started devouring them and I have to admit…I think i’m in love.

Shame shame…

Huge shame on me. I did exactly what I said I wasn’t going to do. I haven’t blogged in quite some time. However, in my defense I have been participating in NaNoWriMo and am hoping to actually finish it at 50,000 words this year. Who else is participating?

Define crazy…

Question of the day: Does it make me crazy if I have arguments with fictional characters in my head? The main character in my WIP decided to pipe up in my head yesterday with something that she wants to happen, I am not sure necessarily that I agree with it. It is her story though, so I may have to let her win on this one.


I hate losing!

Writing Frenzy

Harper opens up submissions for two weeks in October…my first thought…Oh my gosh, oh my gosh! [Insert very excited, very girly dance here]. Second thought is that I need to kick my manuscript into submission. That being said, I am spending the day writing today. I’ve made some pretty good progress actually! Big question is: Will I finish in time for the October submissions? Only time will tell…Tick.Tock.

I took the plunge!

No I didn’t get married this time, I already did that in 2010 when I finally married Dan. I’m talking about the book. You heard it right, I finally started it! Pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard I guess! AND it wasn’t nerve wracking, it felt really good! Now to keep on writing and not keep up with distractions. Here goes…
