I'm hosting an hour-long Facebook party tonight at 9est on Kylie's Fiction Addiction!!

And now, onto our regularly scheduled post...

First up today, the Terrible Titles blog hop. I'm rather late participating in this, but drafting turns me into a madwoman and I didn't have time back when the blog hop was going around. So. I'm doing it now instead!

The lovely Katy Upperman (whom I get to MEET IRL in less than a month and I might be dying a little bit from all the excitement over it) introduced me to this blog hop where you scroll through your current manuscript and stop at random places. Whatever words/phrase the cursor lands on becomes one of eight terrible titles. 

I had my February release open at the moment of writing this post, so it's the one I used to play with. And, in case you're wondering, the REAL title (and blurb!) is at the end of this post.


1. Spiral of Disappointment

2. Might Not Be Enough

3. When I Find Quinn

4. Through So Much

5. Against the Wall

6. Between Us Now

7. Actually, Definitely

8. The Sun is Blinding Across the Water

Yeah, I kinda like a couple of those, tbh. I think Between Us Now and Actually, Definitely are my faves. ALTHOUGH. Against the Wall is taken from a scene. In fact, when my cursor landed there, I couldn't help but reread it all over again. And maybe another time, too.

God, I can't wait to share this book.

Which does have a real title, btw! 

Staying in theme with the title of the first book, Rock & Release (which is now available as a complete novel containing all three serial acts) the next one is...


(I don't know why I'm doing this buildup, it's not as though I've kept it a secret. But I am.)



Surf & Surrender

Coming February 23, 2015

She wants to forget he ever existed. He'd never give up her memory. 

Quinn Westwood is completely over Sawyer Carson. He broke her heart years ago and disappeared from her life without a word. So yeah. She's over him. Never even thinks of him. In fact, she's spending her college summer break surfing and lifeguarding in the Outer Banks, while nursing a bruised heart from a different relationship gone wrong. She doesn't have room in her mind or heart for Sawyer—until she runs into him at a beach bonfire and the sparks that fly between them are way hotter than the flames heating the sand.

Sawyer never got over Quinn. The only thing stronger than what he feels for her is the secret keeping them apart, but sharing it would destroy more than just his life—it'd ruin hers, as well. Still, he can't seem to keep away from her, can't seem to keep his hands off of her soft, tempting skin. Especially since she has even less self-control when it comes to reigniting the physical side of what made them perfect together.

But secrets have a way of slipping out, and when Sawyer's is revealed it threatens to shatter everyone involved. He'll have to face walking away a second time, and Quinn will have to decide if fighting for him is worth it when the fallout could affect more than just her heart, but also those of the people she loves most.


The cover will be revealed next week by Bedroom Bookworms!
