New Release! Adventures of a New Year's Kiss!

Adventures of a New Year's Kiss is available now on Amazon Kindle.
Happy early New Year 2015! Adventures of a New Year's Kiss is available now on Amazon Kindle (and Amazon Unlimited)

2015 is going to rock and there will be tons more Funeral Crashing this coming year! I'm wrapping up Funeral Crashing #4 now...and if you read this whole blog, you'll even notice that I've given you the title...

Adventures of a New Year's Kiss is a Funeral Crashing story following Suzie Whitsett. It can be read as a standalone, although in the series it takes place between books 3 and 4, making it Funeral Crashing #3.5.

Here's a little bit about the book:

Suzie Whitsett loves Kyle Jones and when he gives her an amazing necklace for their two month anniversary, she is over the moon. Twenty-four hours later, it's gone and Suzie has to find out who took it before everything she has with Kyle falls apart right before New Year's...and their first New Year's kiss.  

Attention Funeral Crashing Fans! Make sure to check out the BONUS SCENE at the end of the book that details Kait and Ethan's New Year's Kiss!

Like I mentioned above, although the characters from the Funeral Crashing Series make an appearance in this novella, it is a standalone cozy romantic mystery story featuring Suzie Whitsett.

The Funeral Crashing Series:
#1 - Adventures in Funeral Crashing
#2 - Adventures of a Graveyard Girl
#3 - Adventures in Murder Chasing
#4 - Adventures in Homicide and Heartbreak

Funeral Crashing Standalones (Featuring other Funeral Crashing Characters):
Adventures of a New Year's Kiss (Funeral Crashing #3.5 featuring Suzie Whitsett)

Ethan Tells All Stories (Told From Ethan Ripley's POV):
#1 - Adventures in Double Dating: Ethan Tells The Adventures in Funeral Crashing Double Date Scene

A note to fans of the Funeral Crashing series who are not on my mailing list yet - join it! You'll get the Ethan Tells All stories for FREE if you're on the list WHEN I send them out!!! Otherwise, I will be selling them online.

Crashing Prom Release Day & Movie Cast Ideas!

Crashing Prom is available for Amazon Kindle now!

Today is the release day for CRASHING PROM on Amazon Kindle! So excited! I love release day!

Here's a little about the book: 

Avery Rylee never went to her high school prom. It is one of her biggest life regrets. Now, at the age of twenty-four, Avery has many more regrets. She is stuck in a rut with her career and she has just been dumped by her fiance. After a night of cheap wine and hitting rock bottom, all Avery wants to do is lie in bed at home with a gallon of ice cream, but her three best friends have other ideas. They have planned a cross country road trip to a prom to help Avery start over. Step one is an Ex-Bachelorette Party in Vegas to help Avery try and forget her ex-fiance. Instead of forgetting him, though Avery finds herself the star of her own web series. As a result, she goes on a filmed hunt across America to find a prom dress, a hot date, and a pair of amazing shoes. Will Avery be able to heal her heartbreak, survive internet reality show fame, and have the perfect prom?

Whenever I write a book I always think about who I'd want to play the characters in a movie. So, here are my ideal movie cast ideas for CRASHING PROM!

IDEAL MOVIE CAST:

For AVERY, I'd pick Emma Stone. She's got great comedic timing and is such a funny, talented actress.

Emma Stone as Avery.

For VIVI, I'd pick Zooey Deschanel. She's super quirky and I love her energy. Vivi needs to be played by someone with a great energy about them. Vivi is someone that is always on! I also considered Zooey for the part of Avery because of her comedic background in The New Girl.


Zoey Deschanel as Vivi.

For TESS, I'd pick Trojan Bellisario. She plays the more studious type on Pretty Little Liars and Tess is a workaholic...

Trojan Bellisarion as Tess.

For MIA, I'd pick Gina Rodriguez. I love her on Jane the Virgin. She has a sweetness about her and that's how I see Mia.

Gina Rodriguez as Mia.

For FLYNN, I was thinking Dave Franco. He's cute.

Dave Franco as Flynn.

For LUCAS, I'd pick Nicholas Hoult. He has the most amazing eyes and smile. Plus he was great and funny in Warm Bodies.

Nicholas Hoult as Lucas.
Who would you like to see play the characters in a movie? I'd love to hear your ideas!

Check back this weekend for some more posts! And don't forget to enter the giveaway for a signed paperback of Crashing Prom on goodreads (see the link below to a previous blog!).

Crashing Prom Excerpt & Giveaway!

Crashing Prom is available for pre-order now!
CRASHING  PROM release week continues! It will be officially released this Friday, November 7, 2014! In today's blog I'll post an excerpt and tell you about a signed paperback giveaway of Crashing Prom! 

First, the Crashing Prom EXCERPT:


Josh Evans was my ideal prom date. He was standing about ten feet away from me at his locker. It was now or never. There was only a month left until prom and if I didn't ask him now, he'd ask someone else first. I suppose it was also possible that some other brave girl might ask him too. I had to do this now especially since I was pretty sure that there was no way that Josh was going to ask me to the prom. At least, I didn't think so. I really wasn't on his radar. Sure, we had one class together, English, but the only time we ever actually talked was when we were put into a group together to work on a project.
The last time we were in a group together was a month ago for the Shakespeare section. We were reading Romeo and Juliet. The group picked Josh for Romeo, but I wasn't the lucky Juliet. That coveted role fell to Kerri Penn. I was totally jealous at first, but it turned out that she was a great actress. She really pulled the scene off unlike Josh, who turned out to be terrible. We got our B grade because of Kerri. Josh seriously couldn't act at all. It sounded like he was reading from the book for the first time even though he'd memorized his lines. Still, even Josh was a better actor than the other guy in our group, Ben Turner. I ended up helping direct the scene with Kate Yearly. I preferred staying offstage. Attention centered on me like that freaked me out. Still, it would have been perfect being Josh's Juliet. I would have gladly braved the stage for him. 
I suppose that was still a missed opportunity for me. I could have spent time talking to Josh during that project, but I didn't. The problem was that I wasn't great at flirting. Other girls could flip their hair, giggle, and smile, but on me it came off as totally awkward and fake. I was the smart girl, at least in English, and my nose was always in a book instead of talking to the cute guy. In this case, I spent the whole time working on the directing instead of flirting. I doubt Josh even noticed me as a girl. I hated that about myself. I wanted to be better at the girly stuff, but I just wasn't. I felt weird and guys just didn't seem to look at me like that.
Sure, I wasn't popular, but I wasn't unpopular either. I was somewhere in the middle. I had plenty of friends, but no boyfriend. Still, all of my friends already had their prom dates. I was stuck going stag if I didn't find a date, although if that happened I was pretty sure that I'd rather not go at all. All of my friends didn't understand why I hadn't found a date yet. Prom was a month away. I thought I had time. I had only just realized that my time was running out if I wanted to go with my ideal prom date.
I watched Josh from my locker where I'd been watching him since the beginning of the year. I wasn't watching him in a creepy way. I just thought he was gorgeous and he was nice eye candy to spy on from my locker. It was ridiculous, but it totally made my day to just see him even if it was from afar.
 I'd known him since we were in grade school, but somewhere within the last year, Josh had gotten super hot. He had brown hair that was a little long, really awesome blue eyes, and a body that had gotten really toned and tan since he'd joined the track team. I so wanted him to ask me out. The problem was that Josh hadn't asked me out and prom was in a month, so if I wanted to go with him...
I looked at the clock on the wall that signaled the time to get to class for the students. There was about five minutes before the first bell rang and it was now or never.
