Cover Reveal Sign-up

I've been pretty quiet on my blog lately, but I'm working hard on the final touches of my edits. And working two jobs seriously takes it out of me and I fall into bed when I get home... exhausting, but I am finding joy in both jobs. Anyway --

I'm happy to announce that I will be publishing "Breathless" on April 1st, 2014!!

Wait, didn't you say this before?

Yes, I did. And I failed. There was a severe lack of planning and timing on my part, so "Breathless" was not ready by Dec. 31st, my original publishing date. It was me, nothing else.

BUT --

I am waiting for finishing editing touches and I've seen the cover, which is BEAUTIFUL and I'm very excited about the whole thing! I'm planning on sharing the cover on March 1st. I'm looking for anyone who would like to help share my cover. You can share it on your blog or on Facebook!

Please sign up below! I will be sending an email with the blurb and other publishing info!

YA Contemporary Romance
By Krista McLaughlin

Eighteen-year-old Lainey is the only witness to her best friend losing her life to the depths of the ocean. She stays close to the water, a small part of her hoping to surrender to the same fate. On her birthday the waters almost overtake her, but a mysterious young man rescues her and disappears.

Lainey can't stop thinking about the stranger from the beach, and one night she finds her rescuer naked and bleeding on the shore. Jon doesn’t know what pancakes taste like, how microwave popcorn cooks, or own shoes, but he seems to be just what Lainey needs. As the anniversary of her friend’s death looms, Lainey opens herself in ways she never thought possible. But when Jon’s identity comes to light, Lainey has to save him before she loses another love to the sea.

Thanks and stay tuned for more details!! :)
