Valentine’s Day Giveaway and Sneak Peek

romance is in the air giveaway hop
There’s a Valentine’s Day giveaway over at my Blogspot blog. The giveaway is a $25 Gift Card to buy the romance(s) of your choice.

I thought I would have my new novel, the second in The Glister Journals series, ready for release by now, but it’s almost done. And yes, there is romance. Unfortunately, the new book’s not ready to give copies away yet, but I’ll share a teaser with you.

Here’s a tiny sneak peek – just a touch of romance for Valentine’s Day. 🙂

It was darker here, but there was enough light to plainly see his face. He was standing very close and still holding my wrist as if afraid to let go.

“This is the scary part,” he said softly, staring back at me.

I had a stab of fear, wondering what he’d say next. “I—”

There was no time to say anything more and even less to formulate theories on his behavior. His gaze dropped to my mouth for a heartbeat, then he planted his own lips firmly on mine.

Another moment later, he drew slowly away.

I was stunned.  My heart had leaped to my throat the moment we had reached our dubious destination, but I wasn’t expecting this. I couldn’t grasp the fact that he had literally dragged me outside to a forbidden and relatively isolated location to—what? Kiss me? He just kissed me?

My heart thumped and skipped crazily as the reality of that sank in to my poor befuddled brain. I was speechless. My assumptions about this evening were spinning in ever widening circles.

Romance Is In the Air Giveaway Hop

Romance Is In the Air

Welcome to my post and giveaway for the Romance Is In the Air Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Rachael Anderson

I am featuring my series The Glister Journals which, to be honest, is more about relationships in general and more on the literature side than strictly YA or romance. But for me it is a romance first and foremost, though there are only hints and glimpses of it in the first novel Bronze. Bronze’s birthday (first published) is Valentines Day, so this seemed very appropriate! And yes, there is real (clean) romance in the remaining books in the series. The second book will be released this year.

The Glister Journals: Bronze

Summary

    “We all make assumptions every day. Some more important than others. Some more damaging than others. And things, very often, are not at all what they seem.”

    Allison Anderson is a normal but not exactly average fourteen year old girl. She knows she’s a little different, but it hadn’t bothered her too much—until now. Moving away from everything she has ever known to a new house, new neighborhood, and new school is bad enough, but it’s her first year of high school too. She’s more aware of her social and physical limitations than ever before. And then there are the new people she meets: the tough-looking girl in her home room; the cute but dangerous-looking boy she first saw before school even started; the quiet, older girl who keeps to herself; the sullen-looking, seemingly isolated junior that doesn’t seem to trust or like her at all. Can they be friends? She’s been the victim of bullying in the past; can she trust them? While her peaceful new home only amplifies her doubts, she begins to learn that things are not always what they seem. Her world is turned upside-down by these and other new friends, two-legged and otherwise. Life soon becomes more complicated, and much more interesting!

If you would like to investigate the series further, you will find more information and both media and independent reviews at the series website theglisterjournals.com. There is a soundtrack contest too. You can also find the book on Goodreads. Follow me there or here for updates on the series.

For this giveaway I’m giving a $15 Amazon gift card and a paperback copy of Bronze.
