Blog Tour Stops for LIES I TOLD

Less than two weeks until the launch of LIES I TOLD, and I have so many fun things planned for you guys! Starting with a blog tour chock full of never-before-released excerpts, interviews with moi (don’t lie – you’ve always wanted to know what kind of milkshake LIES I TOLD is and what my favorite song is right now), tons of random things about me and the book (hint; there is one and only one game that I’m addicted to on my phone… 😉 ), playlists, and almost twenty chances to win a LIES I TOLD prize pack.

Preorder Goodies

Just a reminder that you can now preorder a signed copy of LIES  I TOLD from Oblong Books and Music! I love doing preorder incentives with Indies, both because I want them to stick around and because it means I get to see the names of the people who have preordered and can write a personal message along with my signature. I feel like I know so many of you from Twitter, Facebook, etc., and it’s really nice to see your names on the list and then sit down to write you a note. Plus, if you order from Oblong you get a handy-dandy peacock pocket mirror as part of the promotion.

Like you needed something else to make this worthwhile.

😉

Preorders are a very important benchmark for authors, as publishers look at those numbers to determine how well the book is expected to do. And THAT is important because if a book does extraordinarily well with preorders, a publisher may give the book more exposure through increased marketing, something that can make ALL the difference in how well a book does long term. It’s one of very few things you can do in advance of a book’s release to support the book and its author. So do me – and any author you want to support – a solid and preorder a book today!

P.S. Hang onto your receipt if you preorder from another store (online or otherwise) as well. All of my preorder swag is going to the Oblong orders first, but if I have extra, I’ll be offering it to readers who preordered elsewhere.

LIES I TOLD Sneak Peek and ARC Giveaway

Goodreads_CoverRight now on Goodreads you can enter to win one of three advance copies. Which is the perfect excuse to give you guys a sneak peek.

😉

 

Looking back, I should have known Playa Hermosa was the beginning of the end. We’d had a good run, and if things were sometimes tense between Mom, Dad, and Parker, it was nothing a new job couldn’t fix. Just when they’d be at each other’s throats, we’d move on to a new town.
 
And there was nothing like a new town to remind us which team we were on.

But Playa Hermosa was different. It was like another world. One where the old rules didn’t apply. Like the exotic birds on the peninsula, we were suddenly all on our own.
 
Except it didn’t feel like that right away. In the beginning, it was business as usual. Plot the con, get into character, work our way in, stick together.
 
I don’t know if it was my relationship with Logan that tipped everything over the edge or if the signs had been there long before. Either way, I tell myself it was for the best. The universe seems to have its own mysterious plan. I guess we’re just along for the ride. I can live with that. The harder part, the impossible part, is living with what I did to Logan and his family.
 
We knew what we were doing. Knew the risks. But Logan and his family were good. Maybe the first really good people I’d ever met. They loved each other, sacrificed for each other. Not because they didn’t have anyone else, but because that’s what love is.
 
What happened to them is my fault. And I’m still trying to figure out if I can live with that.
 
Then there’s Parker. Deep down, I know the choice was his. But I can’t help wondering if he stuck around because of me. If he hadn’t, everything would be different, and he’d probably be drinking beer in Barcelona or coffee in Paris or something.
 
I can’t think about the other stuff. Thinking about it forces me back to the question; Why didn’t I see it? Had the end of our family been one sudden, impulsive decision that set into motion a string of events that changed everything? Or had it all been a long time coming? I think that would be worse, because if it was true, it meant that I was hopelessly, unforgivably naive.
 
And there’s no crime as unforgivable as naivety when you’re on the grift.

 
Entering is easy!

Might disagree on everything. Still willing to listen/share respectful dialog. Now permanently estranged from family who don't feel same.
But sad to read feeds of those who want "nothing to do" w/ "the liburuls." Can honestly say I don't feel that way about "other" side.
