Endless Summer YA Blog Hop and a $50 Gift Card!

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful summer and are as excited as I am to get back in the groove. I know! I hear you. It went too quickly and you just want it to last a bit longer. Well, I’m here to help.

I’m taking part in a YA Blog Hop with some of my MFRW (Marketing for Romance Writers) pals. From September 5th-7th, we’ll be sharing our best summer vacation stories. Whether actual author adventures, or vacations our characters have taken, we’ll entertain you with pictures of far off places, fun in the sun, and maybe even give you ideas for your next vacation destination!

I hope you’ll join us by visiting each author’s site and leaving a comment. Don’t forget to enter to win the $50 Gift Card giveaway!

The ENDLESS SUMMER BLOG HOP hop right on over to one of our fabulous author’s sites from the banner below.

As for me and my vacation, I had a wonderful twelve day West Coast adventure in July, with a road trip from San Francisco to Seattle with my wonderful hubby. I blogged about it at the Secrets of Seven Scribes in case you want to see the highlights.

But since we’re talking YA (young adult fiction), I’ll share some of Lexi’s Mediterranean cruise pics with you from PIECES of LOVE. While visiting such exotic locales as Portofino and Palermo,

Lexi–along with her grandmother Maddie, and hunky eighteen year-old Ethan Kaswell–experiences the journey of a lifetime. When you read PIECES of LOVE, you’ll see the sights and walk with sixteen year-old Lexi as she learns about herself, her family, and what it means to love someone—even when you have to let them go.

Available at the following retailers

Amazon,   BN,   i-Tunes,   Smashwords

 You can also hear part of the PIECES of LOVE theme song, written and performed by yours truly right here in the book trailer!

Complete song vailable for purchase at i-tunes

So there you have it!

I hope you enjoy visiting all the cool places along our hop, and that your summer lasts just a little bit longer.
