Good Morning, readers!

I know it's been a while since I've blogged, but...that's the life of an agent/author, busy, busy, busy.

Now, first things, first.

In honor of my client, Rachel Harris's upcoming release, My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century, I'm hosting a giveaway complete with two paperback copies of the novel and some pretty cool swag!

On the precipice of her sixteenth birthday, the last thing lone wolf Cat Crawford wants is an extravagant gala thrown by her bubbly stepmother and well-meaning father. So even though Cat knows the family’s trip to Florence, Italy, is a peace offering, she embraces the magical city and all it offers. But when her curiosity leads her to an unusual gypsy tent, she exits . . . right into Renaissance Firenze.

Thrust into the sixteenth century armed with only a backpack full of contraband future items, Cat joins up with her ancestors, the sweet Alessandra and protective Cipriano, and soon falls for the gorgeous aspiring artist Lorenzo. But when the much-older Niccolo starts sniffing around, Cat realizes that an unwanted birthday party is nothing compared to an unwanted suitor full of creeptastic amore.

Can she find her way back to modern times before her Italian adventure turns into an Italian forever?

Some more news!

So... many of you have been patiently waiting on the releases of Yelling Out Loud (Whisper To A Scream 2) and Beautiful Nightmares(The final installment in the asylum trilogy). I assure you that I am currently working on both of these books and hope to have them completed soon. As of right now, YOL is scheduled for a September 30 release and BN is scheduled for October 16. The release date of YOL may change, but BN is solid. That date is not changing. Also, I've been thinking of ways of how I can give back to the readers. I try to think of creative ways to show my appreciation for all your passion and support for my books and I think I have found a brilliant way to show how much you support means to me. Inside of Beautiful Nightmares will be both of Aurora's novellas. There will be one at the beginning. One at the end. Also included will be two separate chapters, one written from Damien's point of view and one written from Elijah's after their first encounters with Adelaide. So I hope you enjoy them. And thank you, thank you, thank you, a million times over for your passion over my books and for your support. I am nearing the 50,000 books sold mark and I could not have done it without you!

Also, in honor of the upcoming release of the final installment in the asylum trilogy the price of Insanity and White Walls will be dropped for a limited time only.

Insanity will be .99 cents. And White Walls will be 1.99.  

*Please note when reading that this series is written out of order and purposely done so. They are also NA titles, not YA titles so there are some scenes and situations that may not be suitable for readers under 16 years of age. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!



  1. Woo hoo for Rachel! I'm reading her book next, and I can't wait.

    And I'm so excited for both BN and YOL!!! Yay!

  1. I think I would be right with Ms. Harris in the 16th century. I blame the Princess Bride. If I was alive during the 16th century, I could fall in love with the Man in Black and we'd live happily ever after in the fire swamp.

    If you could travel back in time to any era, what would it be and why?

    I'd travel back to the 1940s/50s. I love their style, their finesse, the way men had to dress nicer, the way people were proper and more respectful. You don't find a lot of that now a days. People were more mature back then at a younger age. Now, it almost seems like people don't care and party until they're kicked out of their parents house.

    It was also a time when woman were making a name for themselves, getting rights, and finding themselves.

  1. Hi! Thanks for the giveaway! It's awesome!
    Well I love Medieval Europe I have a huge fascination with knights, tournaments, kings, 'm a sucker for that so I'd go for the 15th century.

    I also follow you on twitter: @GabyLafara

  1. I would totally go back to either ancient Greece or ancient Egypt. I'd love to me immersed in that culture for awhile.
    Congrats to Rachel and Lauren. (you know how to reach me. *wink)

  1. Grats to both of you. I'm already a follower, as I should be.

    Ancient Egypt. I would love to go and see how they actually built the Great Pyramid. I mean, what could be more awesome than that.

    HUGS to you both.

    And, you know how to get hold of me, too.

    I would travel to Italy or Greece. I've been to Spain and It's so freaking gorgeous. I've heard that Italy and Greece are beautiful, too and I'd like to explore these two countries. Barcelona would definitely be one of the cities I'd like to visit in addition to Rome and Athens (Greece) for instance. Thehee. The cultural aspects are a plus point as well ;)

    Looking forward to reading this book. Read such a great reviews on it and congrats to both of you, again :)

    Have a lovely day!
