I'M SO EXCITED I COULD POP!


My dear friend, Jennifer Salvato Doktorski, has a new book coming out next May called, THE SUMMER AFTER YOU AND ME. And because Jen is every shade of rad, she's letting me help show off the fancy new cover!!

To honor this special occasion, I'm giving away a signed ARC of THE SUMMER AFTER YOU AND ME (when it's available) as well as a signed copy of SUMMER ON THE SHORT BUS (a book that Jen happened to blurb *coughs like a big shot*).  This is a U.S. only giveaway and runs thru Friday, November 14.

Here's a quick tease about the book:


Sunbathing, surfing, eating funnel cake on the boardwalk—Lucy loves living on the Jersey Shore. For her, it's not just the perfect summer escape, it is home. And as a local girl, she knows not to get attached to the tourists. They breeze in over Memorial Day weekend, crowding the shore and stealing moonlit kisses, only to pack up their beach umbrellas and empty promises on Labor Day. Lucy wants more from love than a fleeting romance, even if that means keeping her distance from her summertime neighbor and crush, Connor.

Then Superstorm Sandy tears apart her barrier island, briefly bringing together a local girl like herself and a vacationer like Connor. Except nothing is the same in the wake of the storm. And day after day, week after week, Lucy is left to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and broken home. Now with Memorial Day approaching and Connor returning, will it be a summer of fresh starts or second chances?
