Cover Reveal - My Own Mr Darcy

I'm so excited for this book! Karey White is one of my personal favorite authors - her books are amazing! She's also super nice. I love this cover.

Blog Tour - Armor Up and Suit Up

Summary from DeseretBook.com: “Take upon you my whole armor that ye may be able to withstand the evil day, having done all, that ye may be able to stand.” —D&C 27:15 These words are as true today as they were back in 1830 when Joseph Smith received them in revelation — almost more so as today’s youth face the growing challenges of our society. But now in this compact yet powerful book, today’s most beloved youth speakers explain how wearing that spiritual armor can not only help youth face those difficult challenges in life, but also conquer them.

Scarlet - Lunar Chronicles #2

Scarlet is a young woman living in France. It's the future, I'm not sure exactly when in the future, because the time seems to be numbered differently. Scarlet is worried, because her grandmother has disappeared. She knows that something bad has happened to her, because her tracking chip was left in the farmhouse where they live. The police are certain she left on her own, mainly because of the tracking chip, but Scarlet knows that kidnappers would cut out the chip happily to avoid being tracked by anyone. Scarlet is trying to go about her regular life of delivering vegetables in her community, but it's hard when the rest of her life is turned upside down. She knows that she must get the police to see her way of thinking, before it's too late for her grandmother. But then she meets Wolf. He's a strong street fighter, supposedly looking for work on her vegetable farm. But Scarlet is sure that he can help her find her grandmother. 

Meanwhile, Cinder is still in prison…

Blog Tour - The Trouble with Toads

Tour Schedule

The Trouble with Toads Once upon a time a young girl wanted revenge. But first, she wanted to be beautiful. Twelve-year-old Bettony has read enough stories that begin with ‘Once upon a time’ to know what happens to the ugly stepsisters at the end, and she’s determined to escape that fate by any means necessary—even by magic. Unfortunately, when it comes to magic, there is no place for regret, refunds, or exchanges. Even if you accidentally turn your older sister into a toad. If Bettony wants her Happily Ever After to end well, she’s going to have to find a way to turn her sister back into a person before their mother finds out she’s been dabbling with magic and grounds her for life. Tracking down the family magic turns out to be surprisingly easy. Now, if only it came with directions . . . THE TROUBLE WITH TOADS (45,000 words) is the first book in a new upper MG series The Secret Stepsister Society. The second book will be released Summer 2013.
