End of the Line
When so much is lost how does one to have the strength to move on? At seventeen Lauren was prepared for yet another year of school. Then asteroids hit, killing all of those she knew except for a few other teens from her neighborhood. Joining forces with her classmate Aaron, they work together on the journey in the hopes of finding more people that are alive. On the way, threats of starvation, illness, and freezing to death don’t compare to the danger of Dean Manson. Manson is an ex-con out for revenge against Aaron. With so much working against them these teens fight for everything even if it means denying their feelings just for the chance to see a new day.

New Cover...last time

Poor End of the Line has gone through many transformations over the years, changing its face more than once. Unless I make it huge and a big time publisher takes End of the Line under its wing, I promise this will be the last time I change its cover. Even then I might beg just because I feel bad and I know as a reader books constantly changing covers drives me crazy. However, I think what drives me even more crazy is series covers that don't match. I was reading the Nightshade series, and I loved the sparkly purple cover, then they went and changed the cover so that they would all go in a new direction. Now the series sits on my bookshelf in Jersey (not enough room where I live now...) not matching. Yet, the series when you look it up they all do go along with each other.

That is one of the things that drove the last change for this book series. The second book is still with the editor, but I want to get ready for the marketing for its release. That in mind, I want to make sure that the covers make sense.

It is uploaded on smashwords, and Amazon will take a day or two so keep your eyes out!

Here is the transformation of End of the Line

Summer and Giveaway

I am home from an all day conference, day one out of three, and my brain is gone. This is day two of summer break if you do not count the weekend. Yet, yesterday I cleaned, dusted, mopped, and organized 95% of the house. I would have vacuumed, but I took it apart and couldn't put it back together again. Oops! Oh well, I gave something for my boyfriend to do to keep him busy in addition to a pot rack that needs to be hung up. Now that I am out of work and down to two weeks of my class I foresee many home projects in my future. That is, not including my writing ones!

However, I doubt you all clicked on my blog to read about me cleaning and organizing my house. Or my fail attempts of being handy with my vacuum. You want to read about the big giveaway that has 23 days left! The winner will win a big prize that is worth over $200! It has a gift card to Amazon, in addition to paperbacks from eighteen authors. All of the books are contemporary romance themed. Beneath the Scars and Project US are just two of the many books that are part of this package.
