Burning 800 Calories in 30 Minutes



And now that you've burned all those calories, sit yourself down and pick up an awesome book! I won't object if it's mine. Check out my continuing (online) book tour:


YOU MUST READ THIS REVIEW: Robyn Campbell's thoughts on Moonless, and she asks me everything from cheese to ice cream. (Yes, those are both dairy. What's your point?)

Want some amazing Fantasy reading suggestions? Ashley Chappell asks me about my top ten.

Top Ten Ways to Send a Guy Running with Kimberly at Meetings with My Muse. Need relationship advice?  

Laura Clipson interviews Kiren, who has been called "drool worthy" by multiple reviewers (and my slightly obsessed editor). Come meet this tortured man. 

THE BLOG RING OF POWER with Emily at The Realms of a Fantastical Mind where she holds me at pen point and demands ALL MY WRITERLY WIZDOMS. (That's right, wizdoms--did you miss Tuesday's post?) 

Alexia’s nightmares become reality: a dead baron, red-eyed wraiths, and forbidden love with a man hunted by these creatures. After an attack close to home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world. To protect her family she must either be sold into a loveless marriage, or escape with her beloved and risk becoming one of the Soulless.

MOONLESS is Jane Eyre meets Supernatural.

"MOONLESS is powerful, compelling, and packed with soul." --Bethany Kaczmarek, editor at A Little Red, Inc. 

"I fell head over heels for the characters." --TC Mckee, BookFish Books 

"Power-packed action, heart stopping mystery, unpredictable twists and turns..." --I Am a Reader Not a Writer

Buy MOONLESS HERE or add it on Goodreads.

Come back Monday for more games, fun, and chances to win! Oh, and what is your secret for burning calories?

--One last thing. Enter my giveaway, eh?
