Doppelganger 1 & 2 GIVEAWAY, Doppelganger 3, & What Books I'm Releasing Next!

Doppelganger 2: On the Run kiss teaser!

Doppelganger 2: On the Run release weekend is coming to a close! It's now at its official price of $2.99. Here are the ebook buy links: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iTunes | Smashwords | and more!

Don't have the cash? Well, don't worry, you can still win it. Just enter the GIVEAWAY at the bottom of this blog to win both ebooks of Doppelganger 1 & 2! Just a reminder that international is okay and if you already bought the books and you win...I'll send you a gift card for the amount of the books (and you can buy something else!). Also make sure to check my website/twitter/facebook regularly for more giveaways, freebies, and deals!


For those of you here to find out more about the Doppelgangers series because you just raced your way through book #2...I know you must have one big question like:

When does Doppelganger 3 come out?!?!?!!?!
  
I actually don't have a for-sure date yet (mostly because I can never exactly tell how long it will take me to write a book and the Doppelganger series has taken me longer than some), but I'm shooting for the end of 2014. I've got a general outline and a few chapters started (because who could stop writing just after that ending!).

Still, I'm actually going to have a few books out before Doppelganger 3. First, there will be a Funeral Crashing Box Set (books 1-3) out at the end of July. I'll post release dates soon. It's going to have a few extra scenes from Ethan's POV. I'll be doing the same for a Doppelganger Box Set once all three books are written FYI. Then in August I'm hoping to release a NA chicklit book that I'm currently calling Crashing Prom. It's something I started a few years ago as a 3 Day Novel and I am just developing it a little more and fleshing out the characters. It's similar in style (fun, romance, in your head talk) to the Funeral Crashing and Doppelganger novels, but there's no mystery or paranormal. It's just a story about a girl who always regretted not going to her senior prom...and it's a really fun book! After that I'm hoping to release Funeral Crashing 4 in the fall. I'm outlining it right now and working on the mystery. I already know what happens to Kait & Ethan in the 6 books I have planned (and there might be more if people keep reading them!) and there will be big things going on between them in book 4!!!! Doppelganger 3 will come out after that and it should be the last book in the series. There's so much to write, though, that I'm feeling a little worried...might it be two books more? If it's only one, it's going to be a long one! And as the final book, all will be revealed! Who are the doppelgangers? Who will Citrus choose? Will the doppelgangers take over? It's going to be an action packed, romance filled, suspenseful ending to the series! I'm hoping to write it in the early fall. Fingers crossed.   

Any theories you'd like to share about the Doppelgangers series? It's always fun to hear what readers think!

For those of you that have only read my Funeral Crashing books, here's what The Doppelgangers series is about:

DOPPELGANGER

Citrus Leahy is having a really bad day. First she's late to school. Then she runs into the girl who drives her nuts because she always calls her Orange instead of her name. To cap it all off, when Citrus finally makes it to class, she sees herself already inside. Wait. What? Citrus Leahy has a doppelganger! It's probably aliens taking over the world and her life has just turned totally upside down. Goodbye, normal. Hello, paranormal! Luckily, her crush Aedan has the exact same problem!

DOPPELGANGER 2: On the Run (Spoiler alert for those of you who haven't read book #1)

The doppelgangers are coming!

Citrus Leahy is on the run from doppelgangers! Now she and a group of teenagers whose lives have also been taken over have to figure out how to stay hidden. The doppelgangers could be anywhere or anyone. Her crush Aedan makes her feel safe except that he keeps reminding her of the guy she left behind...his doppelganger! Citrus also can't forget that the doppelgangers have her mother, but she has no idea how to save her when their group is barely saving themselves. It seems like the doppelgangers are always hot on their trail and there's danger around every corner, maybe even from within.

Only 1 more day until the Doppelganger 2: On the Run Release!


Doppelganger 2: On the Run release week continues! Today's topic: movie cast ideas! And while you're here, make sure to enter the GIVEAWAY below to win a FREE ebook copy of Doppelganger 1 & 2! 

Before I go on with the blog, just a reminder: Doppelganger 2: On the Run is only $0.99 cents for the pre-sale. If you're going to get it, buy it now! Here are the links:
Apple Itunes Ibooks
Barnes & Noble Nook Books
Smashwords (all ebook formats!)
Amazon Kindle Ebooks: the book will be up by June 27th, 2014 and it will be available for 99 cents for TWO DAYS - Friday June 27th and Saturday June 28th since I'm unable to do an official pre-order with Amazon, so if you want the book put the date in your calendar or set an alert to remind you!


MOVIE CAST IDEAS:  
Thinking about a movie cast for my books is always fun. Here are some of my ideas for an IDEAL Doppelganger series movie cast:

CITRUS LEAHY (and Doppel-Citrus): 


Elle Fanning

I thought Elle Fanning might be a fun choice for Citrus. Other ideas I had were Maddie Hasson (from ABC Family's Twisted) and Chloe Grace Mortez (Dark Shadows), who I actually chose for a different character in the end.

AEDAN FINNIGAN (& Doppel-Aedan):

Sterling Beaumon


I came across Sterling Beaumon (Lost, Mostly Ghostly) and thought he'd make a good Aedan Finnigan. I had a few other ideas too like Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter movies. Still, have you seen his latest movie pics? He's way less awkward looking now!) and Josh Hutcherson (Peeta in The Hunger Games). The hard part about casting Aedan is that he's supposed to be a redhead and there are not a ton of well known actors with red hair (or who could fake it). So, maybe even an unknown would work...

MELISSA DAY (& Doppel-Melissa):

Chloe Grace Mortez

Chloe Grace Mortez (Dark Shadows) seems like a possible choice for Melissa. Any other ideas?

DAN (& Doppel-Dan):

Taylor Lautner

Taylor Lautner (Twilight) seems like a good choice for Dan, since he sure can get his work out on as evidenced from his abs in Twilight.

OLIVIA (& Doppel-Olivia):
Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez (Wizards of Waverly Place) seems like a possibility for Olivia. 

MATT (& Doppel-Matt):

Logan Lerman
Logan Lerman (Perks of Being a Wallflower) is a possibility for Matt. Matt could be even geekier, though. Logan is geeky hot. 

SAMANTHA (& Doppel-Samantha):

Lucy Hale
Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars) is a possibility for Samantha. I just remember one of her early scenes in Pretty Little Liars where she makes out with the guy who turns out to be her teacher. She can be Samantha-esque I think.

TRACE (& Doppel-Trace):

Avan Jogia
Avan Jogia (Twisted) is a definite possibilty for Trace. Have you seen Twisted? He's great and he's pretty good looking too!

And that's most of the major characters! Lol. I'd never be able to get all of these actors into one movie. If I got one or two that would be great. I'm all for unknown actors, though! There might be a new and upcomming star among them who'd be a perfect fit for one of my characters!

Giveaway & Excerpt from Doppelganger 2: On the Run!



It's mid-week of Doppelganger 2: On the Run release week!!!!!  Make sure to enter the GIVEAWAY below to win a FREE ebook copy of Doppelganger 1 & 2! 

Haven't read Doppelganger 1 yet? That's okay! Here's what it's about:

Citrus Leahy is having a really bad day. First she's late to school. Then she runs into the girl who drives her nuts because she always calls her Orange instead of her name. To cap it all off, when Citrus finally makes it to class, she sees herself already inside. Wait. What? Citrus Leahy has a doppelganger! It's probably aliens taking over the world and her life has just turned totally upside down. Goodbye, normal. Hello, paranormal! Luckily, her crush Aedan has the exact same problem!

Now, it's time to share something more from the book. Here's another EXCERPT from Doppelganger 2: On the Run (available for pre-order on iTunes, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords for only $0.99 cents and it will be available on Amazon.com on FRI and SAT when it releases for $0.99 cents as well!Afterward it will go up to its normal $2.99 price):

***EXCERPT***


"It's at the bottom of my neck, just below my shirt line," I said turning my head to look back at Finn.
I was surprised to find him right behind me. I felt my breath catch at meeting his eyes. Our faces were only inches apart. His eyes were so emerald green. I quickly turned my head back around hoping that nobody noticed that my cheeks were turning bright pink.
"Okay," Finn said a moment later. "I'm...starting."
A second later I felt Finn's hands moving the hair from the back of my neck before I could get a chance to do it. My breath caught. Then I felt the back of the neck of my shirt pull down as Finn looked for the telltale doppelganger bump. His fingers brushed my neck. I felt chills run up my spine and goosebumps that I hoped nobody noticed ran up my arms. I tried to stay as still as I could. Finn's fingers ran over the bump as if to check and make sure it was real. I didn't move. My stomach was doing summersaults. I hoped my crush wasn't obvious to the others. Please, oh please, oh please.

What Would You Do If You Ran Into Your Doppelganger? GIVEAWAY & Doppelganger 2: On The Run Release Week Continues!

Doppelganger 2: On the Run paperback cover!
Three days left until the release of Doppelganger 2: On the Run on Friday June 27th, 2014 and I'm getting super excited! Make sure to enter the GIVEAWAY below for a chance to win a FREE ebook copy of book #1 and book #2!

I've been thinking about book #1 quite a bit actually:

Doppelganger is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Itunes & More!

And I wanted to pose a question: What would you do if you ran into your doppelganger?

Comment below! I'd love to hear what people would do!

This is what I would do if I ran into my doppelganger! It would probably look something like the pictures below! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeird! 



Okay, I have to say one thing first before I answer! When I was in college I actually almost ran into my doppelganger! It's true! My friends (yes, a few of them!) kept telling me that they thought they saw me around campus except I was nowhere near where they saw me at the time!!!!! Eeek! My doppelganger went to the same university as me!!!! Still, we never ran into each other. Well, at least we haven't run into each other yet!

So, what would I do if I came face to face with my doppelganger? Ummmmm....I'd probably freak out and wonder if my parents weren't telling me something! Or I'd run. Well, actually, I guess the logical part of me would start to take over and maybe I'd talk to the girl. Still, I'd be really freaked out. Nah. I'd run! Eeeeeeeek!

FYI!!!!! Make sure to get DOPPELGANGER 2: ON THE RUN for only $0.99 cents during the pre-sale! It will be $2.99 once it is officially released! Here are the links:
