In case you haven’t heard, my birthday’s in a week (August 24)!
To celebrate, I’m giving away a copy of Second Skin and Sharing a Pond. This is a tumblr-only giveaway (sorry!).
Today I stopped by Delighted Reader and talked about what I learned by being an author going through the Riptide publishing process. Finally, I also visited Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words and Sinfully Gay Romance. I hope you’ve had fun following me along on this blog tour (and if you’re sick of these posts, you can be happy to know they’re done now!
Fun fact: I ate at an In-N-Out for the first time in my life, tonight in Las Vegas.
I stopped by Love Bytes Reviews to talk about what I’m currently working on and what you can expect to be coming soon, I was interviewed at QUEERcentric Books, and I visited Alpha Book Club and The Jeep Diva.
Fun fact: Although my mom taught me how to crochet, and I can do it, I never really fell in love. However, Amy Lane’s knitting series made me want to knit, and I haven’t stopped since!
Fun fact: I have two older brothers and am the only child to have inherited my father’s brown hair and brown eyes.
Today I headed to Prism Book Alliance to talk about the math class that Jay took in Second Skin.
Today’s fun fact: My flight landed at 10 pm local time (1 am my time!) and I didn’t get to bed until almost 1 am local time….which is why this post is happening Wednesday morning rather than yesterday!
For your ease of use, I’ll be posting each day with a list of my blog tour’s posts, all of which are included in a chance to win a $25 Riptide gift card. I’ll also be posting little facts about myself–just to keep things interesting!
Fact: The campus and area from Second Skin is heavily influenced by the campus of the university I attended, although the story doesn’t take place in a specific location.
Spring is here (that’s why it’s snowing, right?), and that means it’s Horse Season for me. Right now my main task is grooming ponies to help them shed out their winter coats (and considering how fuzzy some of the ponies get, this can be intense!). I wish I’d taken pictures of the barn floor after I groomed my old retired pony. I could have built a dog out of the amount of hair left. (And I mean a german shepherd, not a miniature poodle.)
I can’t quite tell if he’s happy to be back to work or not.
This summer I also have the opportunity to exercise a friend’s mare. I’m not wild about mares, or quarter horses, so this will be an adventure, but it will be nice to have a consistent mount (who is sane and not a pony!). The nice thing is that I still won’t have to feel guilty if I don’t get a chance to get out as often as I should, since I’m a secondary rider 🙂
There’s also an 18-hh Warmblood (that’s 6 feet tall at the whithers) that might need ridden, and if the owner works the kinks out, I may ride him too. Of course, at 5’3, I’m going to look like a pimple. I’ll share pictures if that happens.
If you missed it, Second Skin is now available to order/download at Riptide’s website! It’ll be available at all other vendors on Monday 🙂 So if you just can’t wait, you know where to go.
Also, if you want to follow my blog tour, here’s a list of the stops I’ll be making.
I’m going to be at RT Booklovers Convention from Tuesday through Sunday this coming week, If you you’re going to be in Vegas and you want to say hi, just drop me a line! I’ll mostly be gofering for Riptide, but I have a fair amount of flexible time too. Let me know, and I hope to see you there.
