YA Scavenger Hunt

Hey, friends.

Just wanted to let you know (since I haven't posted in forever, slacker that I am) that I'm part of the Spring 2015 YA Scavenger Hunt Authors. I didn't know what it was until I found out I was invited onto a team. I just sent in my submission and kept my fingers crossed.

There are eight outstanding teams this season. I am going to be a part of  Team Purple. They even gave me my favorite color--how nice of them! The scavenger hunt runs from April 2nd through April 5th, beginning and ending at noon Pacific time on those days.

If you've never been a part of an online scavenger hunt or blog hop before, you should totally give this one a try. It introduces you to new YA authors and books along the way. There are tons of prizes  up for grabs, including a grand prize for each team. Psyched will be part of the Team Purple prize. If you win one of the grand prizes, you will get a book from each author on that team! For more information and to make sure you get hunt updates, sign up for news on the #YASH website.

Seriously. Get in on this one. If you follow the hunt to the author hosting me during the scavenger hunt, you will be one of the first to see the cover for Freaked. Squee! Yes, I'm sending my host a top five list for Psyched, and an excerpt of Freaked along with my cover. I can't wait to show you, friends. Play along with me next week!

Off the Record, Question 1

Fake News at Its Finest

Life has a way of putting me in my place. I had grand intentions to post weekly, and three months later....

So I think it's great that people are talking about fake news these days, because fake news is at the heart of Off the Record. I have a sleezeball paparazzo named Derrick Fuchs (it looks like a swear word, but it's pronounced 'fooks,' a purposeful play on words to immediately show what a douche nozzle he is) in the novel. He writes his articles based on the latest gossip without really caring who he hurts or how much of it is made up. I haven't decided yet if the reader gets to meet him, but the excerpt today is the first article we see from him. Enjoy!


Off the Record, Question 1 Part 2

If you haven't noticed, the format for Off the Record isn't in regular chapters. Main character Devi Madrigal is looking back in an interview for Rocker Chic mag, something I made up because every sleezeball papparazzo antagonist needs a place to work, right? So instead of chapters, you'll see questions and articles about her. It's a fun format to write in.😍

When we last hung out with The Streakers, they were trying to figure out how to make the finale of a live reality show after their lead singer Raina Sky ditched them that morning. They heard Devi singing after her shift at the coffee shop and want to sneak her in to sing for them. Will Devi tell them they're crazy? Can they sneak her in to a studio with tight security? Will this girl with a guitar and a dream steal the chance she's been trying for three years to reach?
