New Book

Saving It Now Available!

Eden: Josh Evans and I have been best friends forever. He knows all my secrets, and I know all of his. So when he randomly asks me to help him lose his virginity, I sort of flip out. That’s a question that sends your mind to places you’ve seriously never considered before. Like, you know. Having sex. With your best friend. Except Josh doesn’t want to have sex with me—he wants me to help him find a girl. A nice girl who’s funny and smart and cute. Except he already knows a girl just like that…

Josh: Eden Sumner is my best friend. So of course she’d be the person to help me find my perfect match, so I can drop my V card before I head off to college. Except the more we search, the more I realize that maybe the right girl has been by my side all along. I don’t need Eden’s help in finding me a girl to love. I’m pretty sure I’m already in love with Eden. But now she thinks I’m only after one thing…with anyone but her.

Cover Reveal!

I freaking LOVE this cover so much!! It’s gorgeous! What do you think?

PRETTY DEAD GIRLS is my first young adult thriller – meaning there are dead bodies, mean girls and a hot boy in this book! Yes, my main character Penelope is trying to figure out who’s killing all her friends (and frenemies), but there’s also this guy hanging around who claims he wants to help her and he’s, like, super good looking. But can she trust him? Can she trust anyone? Penelope just hopes she isn’t the next victim! PRETTY DEAD GIRLS is out January 2nd, 2018, from Entangled Teen.

Synopsis:

Beautiful. Perfect. Dead.

They’re arranged in a particular way. Their faces turned at the most flattering angles, their designer clothes immaculate, as immaculate as their carefully made-up faces. Only the slash of blood across their necks mars the perfect surface. Only the vacant stare in their eyes indicates they’re dead.

The most popular girls in school are going down, and Penelope Malone is terrified she’s next. All the victims so far have been linked to Penelope—and to the mysterious loner boy from her physics class. The one with the lopsided smirk and intense stare that’s almost…cute? Even though she’s not sure she can trust him, she reluctantly agrees to work with him to figure out what’s happening. All while trying to stay one step ahead of the brutal serial killer on the loose.

But this killer won’t be satisfied until every beautiful, popular girl in the senior class is dead—especially Penelope. And the killer is closer than she thinks…

OWG Four Year Anniversary

I am a total cornball, but when I look back over the last four years since ONE WEEK GIRLFRIEND came out, I can’t believe all the goodness that came from that one little book. So. Much. Goodness. And I had no clue. My first post on my website appeared on December 31st, 2012. I said something along the lines of, “I have a feeling 2013 is going to be a good year!”

A complete understatement. 2013 was an amazing, outrageous, scary, anxious, wonderful, fabulous year. With the release of ONE WEEK GIRLFRIEND, my career completely changed. My life completely changed. And I have the readers to thank for that. Drew + Fable too, for sure, but also the readers. Here’s a snippet from a post I made a week after ONE WEEK GIRLFRIEND released:

I must confess. This has been the most amazing, exhilarating week ever. The support I’ve received from readers and reviewers, bloggers…it overwhelms me to the point of happy tears, I swear. I never expected this reaction to Drew + Fable. I certainly didn’t think it would happen this fast. The book only came out a week ago and it’s ranked 171 at the Amazon Kindle store! OMG!

I was just so freaking thrilled with the response! I’d never felt so much reader love before. It was great. But I must say…with my career changing so dramatically, I also took on a lot of projects. I also wrote under another name so I had contracts to fulfill for Karen too. It became overwhelming. I was stressed. I don’t really remember the summer of 2013. My family went on and did all sorts of things and I either stayed home and wrote or I was traveling. By late 2014 I was exhausted, not in the best health and I felt disconnected to my children. So in 2015 I started to slow down (my family would laugh at this but I really did slow down. Sort of). In 2016 I consciously took time off. Something I hadn’t done in YEARS. And peeps, it’s been nice. I’m closer than ever to my family, I feel good and I still somehow had eight books release between my two names in 2016. Crazy!

This year though, it’s sort of a blank slate. And that excites me. All the new possibilities to write something different. Though yes, of course, there are books coming. I have SAFE BET out today, I have another FRIENDS book coming very soon and I also have a YA thriller coming out in early 2018 from Entangled Teen. Otherwise, I gotz nothing. And I’m okay with that.

But enough about my sappy ramblings. SAFE BET is out today! The fourth book in The Rules series, this book is really a mashup between The Rules series and the One Week Girlfriend series (the story involves Sydney, who’s Gabe’s (IN THE DARK) sister and Wade, who’s Owen’s (FOUR YEARS LATER) best friend. Plus, Drew + Fable are all over it. All. Over. It! They play a huge part in this story and I hope all the Drew + Fable fans enjoy the little glimpse into their life. It was so much fun going back to their world. It always is. Hey I might write a story someday with Drew + Fable as the grandparents. You never know peeps!
