LOOP The World in 50 Days

Hey, there!

It is officially 50 days until LOOP hits the shelves. (I know. Kind of hyperventilating a little here.)

To celebrate, Hubbykins and I have a little friendly wager going. I bet him that I could get this picture to travel to all 50 states and 25 different countries by LOOP's release date, October 21st.

The winner of said wager gets to pick which charity we donate $500 to. I chose Doctors Without Borders. The reason for this is because I modeled one of my characters off of a DWB volunteer worker. He travels anywhere in the world where he's needed to provide medical care. Well, and he's a time traveler, so "anywhere" might include 1863.

The loser of said wager gets to rise and shine bright and early with the Pea and Boo every Saturday morning for a month. :)

Clearly, I need to win this bet.

Two Months Until LOOP Comes Out!

It's getting real, folks! 

Especially as I'm putting sparkly polish-dust on LOOP's sequel right now, TWIST. No spoilers other than to say, Bree just can't cut a break. Also, the ending...is bringing swoony back.

Win a pre-order of LOOP!

Yep. It's my first giveaway! I'm giving away a pre-order of LOOP along with some sweet signed swag.

(Note: this is a giveaway for a *pre-order* of LOOP. You'll receive it when it releases in October, but I'll send the swag...a signed bookplate, bookmarks, and a super-sekrit fun thing that I'm unreasonably excited about...before then.)

All you need to do is enter the Rafflecopter below. With awesome bonus entries available. And note the +10 bonus entries for joining the newsletter, which you can do in the link on the left sidebar of this site or enter your e-mail here:

How fun is this?

Hafsah over at Icey Books is hosting the official cover reveal (and giveaway of a Barnes & Noble gift card and lip gloss!) for Rachele Alpine's adorable Operation Pucker Up today, but here's a sneak peek at the cuteness:

Seriously. Isn't that adorable?

And the synopsis:

Haddie Shaw is thrilled to pieces when she wins the coveted lead role in her school play. That is, until she realizes she’ll have to kiss Prince Charming. On the lips. And not only is Prince Charming—a.k.a James Lowe—the most popular boy in school, but Haddie has never, ever been kissed.
To help, Haddie’s two best friends create Operation Pucker Up—a plan for Haddie to score a kiss before opening night so she doesn’t make a total fool of herself in front of a live audience. If that weren’t enough to think about, Haddie’s father, who left six months ago, suddenly walks back into her life. Haddie, her mom and sister have bonded as the “Terrific Three” – and while two of the “Three” welcome Dad back with open arms, Haddie isn’t sure she can forgive and forget. 
With Operation Pucker Up spinning out of control, and opening night fast approaching, will Haddie manage to get her happily ever after—both on-stage and off?
