happy friday, my friends! what a full and fulfilling week this has been. starting tomorrow or later today i'm about to dive headlong into edits on The Blood Race book 3, but to kick off the weekend i wanted to take a moment to thank every single one of you who has participated in the blog tour for worlds beneath, helped me spread the word, and of course, READ the book! 

you guys don't even know how much you mean to me, and how much i love you all. below, i'm going to list every single person (and their blogs) participating in the tour. please take a moment to go check out their posts and show them some love - they're all so awesome, and such a great bunch of writers themselves. 

i also wanted give you a heads up - i just kicked off a giveaway over on my instagram - There will be 3 winners: 1st prize includes everything you see in this photo - signed copies of BOTH my books (the first two in the trilogy), one handcrafted, 'The Blood Race' watercolor book marker (graciously donated by the brilliant McKenzie!), a vintage-style journal, a "Book Lovers Kit" (which includes a place-marker, a 'from the library of' stamp & slips, and a quote book), and a box of Tazo sweet cinnamon spice tea (because who doesn't love a hot cup of tea with a good book??) 2nd & 3rd prize include one beautiful hand-painted 'The Blood Race' bookmark, and digital copies of both books.
