Hey all! Wanted to take a minute to show you the book trailer for FOUR SUMMERS. Also, don't forget my contest. Scroll down for details!
“What I love the most is when I can find a book that makes me feel like I'm not reading anymore, I'm living in the character's world for a little while.” ~Lili Amazon review
"It is so much more than a love story. It is a story about friendship, finding yourself, making mistakes, and growing up with the person that will forever live in your heart and be a part of your life, for good or bad.
Charlie and Nate are characters that are so fleshed out they become real. Their emotions are your emotions and their troubles and worries are your trouble and worries. Their happiness matters to you and over time you come to care a great deal about them as you become invested in their lives." ~ My Guilty Obsession Blog
Quotes from FOUR SUMMERS along with pictures that go along with the book. Hope you like it!
A moment can change everything...
Charlotte Gates is tired of being Charlie Rae. She loves the lake she was raised on, their rental cabins, and spending her nights under the stars…but inside she yearns for more.
After his freshman year, Nathaniel Chase’s family spends their first summer at The Village. From the beginning Charlotte intrigues him. She’s the girl who always says what’s on her mind, wins at night games, and each time she looks through her telescope, gets lost in the sky.
Over the course of four summers together, Charlotte and Nathaniel become best friends, share firsts, mend broken hearts, protect each other’s secrets, overcome tragedies…fall in love. And say goodbye…
Charlie wants out of The Village. Nate wants her to have her stars. And they dream of being able to do it all together. But life isn’t as easy as their summers.
Each summer is told in alternating points of view between Charlie and Nate. Journey with the pair, and their friends, as they share their story about growing up, discovering who they are, making tough choices, and falling in love again and again.
I'm having a contest where one person will will a $10.00 Amazon gift card and some swag. Blog the above FOUR SUMMERS image, along with the blurb and Amazon & Barnes and Noble links for the most points :)
Once Upon a Darkness by Aria Kane will be available from Entranced Publishing June 17!
Gretchen and her twin brother, Hank, were abandoned to a zombie horde when they were five years old. Intended to be a sacrifice by their zealot parents, they were instead rescued by The Company. Raised to become soldiers in the war against zombies, they now provide safe passage through danger zones, one contract at a time.
Clint's only skill is war, but he's weary of killing other men. When his contract with the Marines runs out, he takes a job on Gretchen's team, hoping that the search-and-rescue life will suit him better.
On Clint's second day, their four-man team is attacked, drugged, and taken to a prison full of frightened civilians. The only way in or out is by helicopter and, here, their enemies are human. One by one, the captives are culled from the holding area. Rumors say the facility director uses the prisoners as experimental subjects for the testing of a zombie cure.
When Hank is taken, Clint and Gretchen must put aside their personal feelings and find a way out of the prison, surrounded by thousands of starving zombies, before Hank becomes just one more disposable guinea pig in the hands of a twisted mad woman.

I LOVE this book. It's one of my favorite books I've ever written.
Jolene did GREAT with Penny. She's such a strong girl. Love that about her. She doesn't let people take advantage of her and she doesn't let anyone tell her she can't do anything. Plus, she's funny, and she doesn't take Bishop's crap.
Bishop... sigh. I loved writing him. He's very flawed and had a long way to go, but he is special and will always have a place in my heart. And he's funny too. Maybe has a little...okay a huge attitude problem, but he's real and raw and a beautiful work in progress.
I can't wait for August when you guys get to read this book. And because Jolene and I are so stoked about OUT OF PLAY, we made pretty little graphics to share with you.
Rock star drummer Bishop Riley doesn't have a problem. Celebrities—especially ones suffering from anxiety—deserve to party, right? Wrong. After taking a few too many pills, Bishop wakes up in the hospital facing an intervention. If he wants to stay in the band, he’ll have to detox while under house arrest in Seldon, Alaska.
Hockey player Penny Jones can't imagine a life outside of Seldon. Though she has tons of scholarship offers, the last thing she wants is to leave. Who'll take care of her absent-minded gramps? Not her mother, who can’t even be bothered with the new tenants next door.
Penny’s too hung up on another guy to deal with Bishop’s crappy attitude, and Bishop’s too busy sneaking pills to care. Until he starts hanging out with Gramps. If Bishop wants a chance with the fiery girl next door, he’ll have to admit he has a problem and kick it. Too bad addiction is hard to kick…and Bishop’s about to run out of time.
