NaNoWriMo 2014!

It's that time again...NaNoWriMo! I've done NaNo for many years, and wrote More Than Music last year during it. This year I'm writing book 2 in the series, Behind The Seams... PLUS I'm going to try to write a second book, too! The other one is a super secret NA book that would kick off a new series.

I might be setting way too lofty goals, but since I finished NaNo early the last 2 years it's time to give myself a bigger challenge! Writing the draft of Behind The Seams is my main goal, so any work on the other NA book will be a nice bonus, even if I don't hit 100k by the end of November.

If you're doing NaNo too, add me as a buddy so we can cheer each other on!

LOOP Release Day & Giveaway!

Today I'm ridiculously happy because one of my oldest and dearest critique partners Karen Akins has a book out! LOOP is funny, smart, and romantic, and it's one of the best YA time travel books I've ever read. Trust me, you'll love it. And you can enter to win it below!

If I haven't convinced you yet, here's a little more about it...
At a school where Quantum Paradox 101 is a required course and history field trips are literal, sixteen year-old time traveler Bree Bennis excels…at screwing up.

After Bree botches a solo midterm to the 21st century by accidentally taking a boy hostage (a teensy snafu), she stands to lose her scholarship. But when Bree sneaks back to talk the kid into keeping his yap shut, she doesn’t go back far enough. The boy, Finn, now three years older and hot as a solar flare, is convinced he’s in love with Bree, or rather, a future version of her that doesn’t think he’s a complete pain in the arse. To make matters worse, she inadvertently transports him back to the 23rd century with her.

Once home, Bree discovers that a recent rash of accidents at her school are anything but accidental. Someone is attacking time travelers. As Bree and her temporal tagalong uncover seemingly unconnected clues—a broken bracelet, a missing data file, the art heist of the millennium—that lead to the person responsible, she alone has the knowledge to piece the puzzle together. Knowledge only one other person has. Her future self.

But when those closest to her become the next victims, Bree realizes the attacker is willing to do anything to stop her. In the past, present, or future.
Awesome, yeah? You can go buy it now on Amazon or Barnes & Noble! Or add it to Goodreads! Enter to win a copy here:

Karen Akins lives in the MidSouth where she writes humorous, light YA sci-fi. When not writing or reading, she loves lightsaber dueling with her two sons and forcing her husband to watch BBC shows with her.
