This Is W.A.R. Blog Tour and a Giveaway!

First off, yes. I have been on a break...hiatus... Shall we say, pregnant pause? I owe you an update. And pictures of the new Squirtlet. They are forthcoming, I promise. But in the meantime...

Yay!! How excited am I to host Lisa & Laura Roecker's blog tour stop today for their recent release THIS IS W.A.R.? (Answer: Very.)

I loves me a Roecker sister story, and this one is getting great reviews.


This is not a story of forgiveness...

The mystery of their best friend's murder drives four girls to destroy the Gregory family.

Everyone at Hawthorne Lake Country Club saw Willa Ames-Rowan climb into a boat with James Gregory, the Club’s heir apparent.

And everyone at Hawthorne Lake Country Club watched him return. Alone.

They all know he killed her. But none of them will say a word. The Gregory family is very, very good at making problems go away.

Enter the W.A.R.—the war to avenge Willa Ames-Rowan. Four girls. Four very different motives for justice and revenge, and only one rule: destroy the Gregory family at any cost.

One thing I love doing with my own novel is thinking about who I would cast if it were a movie. So, of course, I wanted to know who they would cast in their mind for THIS IS W.A.R. Per Lisa & Laura:

Madge Ames-Rowan is all American in that Ralph Lauren, freckles across the nose way. She’d be played by Alexis Bledel with the agreement that Alexis transforms into batsh** crazy.

Ha! Love it.

So go get it. You won't regret it. Bossypants pinky promise.

Oh, and if you want to WIN A COPY, leave a comment below sharing your favorite movie adaptation of a book. (Mine would be Anne of Green Gables because...Gilbert.)

And just in case you don't know these sassy sisters from the Internets, here's a little about them. If you haven't checked out their Liar Society series, you should do that as well.

Lisa and Laura Roecker are sisters-turned-writing partners with a passion for good books, pop culture, and Bravo programming. Not necessarily in that order. A prepubescent obsession with Lois Duncan and their mother's insistence that they read Men Are Just Desserts inspired This is WAR. The sisters live in Cleveland, Ohio, in separate residences. Their husbands wouldn't agree to a duplex. Cyberstalking is always encouraged at and @landlroecker on Twitter.

Oh, all right. Fine. Twist my arm. A preview. Introducing Squirtlet (and the Pea).
