Plans for 2017 & Announcing The Immortal Mark

Image
This year was a fantastic year for my writing career. It was my second year as a full time writer, and I learned so much about being self employed and writing. I've also been unbelievably blessed to have such amazing readers who send me the best emails!

This year I published 9 full length novels and 3 novellas! It was my most  productive year ever since I started writing seriously in 2008.

For 2017, I plan on publishing one novel a month, starting with my new series, The Immortal Mark. Up until now, I've always published YA contemporary romance, but I've been aching to write this series ever since the idea came to me a few months ago. I recently took a survey of my readers and 94% of them said they'd be happy to read a paranormal series by me, so that motivated me to get started on it. I do still plan on releasing a YA contemporary romance every now and then to keep all my readers happy. :)

The Immortal Mark an urban romance with paranormal elements, and the main chara…

Introducing Amy's Street Team!

Image
As we move into the new year, I'm branching out my marketing efforts (or in other words--I'm starting some marketing efforts! lol) and I'm creating a Street Team!

Being a member of my street team means you're a dedicated reader and want to help me spread the word about my books. My street team will get exclusive info and giveaways that no one else gets, and--the most important part--you'll get a free eBook copy of EVERY new book I release! All you have to do in return is review the books on Amazon as soon as you're able to.

Although nothing is mandatory and being a member of the team is totally voluntary, the purpose of joining up is to help spread the word about new books by posting book reviews, posting links and photos of the books to your social media, websites, blogs, etc. I can even send bookmarks and stickers if you are able to pass them out in real life. Anything goes! The main goal of my street team will be to spread awareness of my books and make sur…

Amy's 2017 Reader Survey

Image
Can you believe the year is almost over? This was my best year yet, as far as writing goes. I managed to write and publish 9 novels and 3 novellas! I can't even begin to tell you how great it feels to finally be a full time writer and be able to pour my heart and time into writing.

For 2017, I plan to publish 10 full length novels and a few novellas! I've always been a writer of teen contemporary novels, but I've recently had an idea for a series that would be a teen paranormal romance. While I will go back to the Summer Unplugged series that everyone loves, as an artist, I have to branch out and write different things from time to time or I get burnt out. And this paranormal series won't get out of my head. It is begging to be written!

I'm not sure if suddenly writing in a different genre would throw off my readers, (or even disappoint my readers who are used to the books I write), so I'd like to ask you to take a survey about my future books.

I'm the only p…

Release Day for Lana's Ex Prom Date

Image
I'm so excited! This book was a lot of fun to write. It was inspired by my sister in law telling me a story of the time she was in high school and her boyfriend dumped her but then said he'd still go to prom with her since they'd already made plans to go.

I liked the idea of turning that sucky situation into a romance, so I took the idea and ran with it. Now Lana's Ex Prom Date is ready for you to read!

You can find it on Amazon in eBook and Paperback here. Read more about the book below.




Lana Clarke just got asked out by one of the hottest guys in school. Toby Fitzgerald is undeniably gorgeous, but his charismatic personality makes Lana the envy of every girl at West Canyon High School. Senior prom is right around the corner, and although Lana had planned on a stag outing with her friends, Ashlyn and Bennet, Toby asks her to be his date in the most romantic way ever. Her friends are bummed, but support her anyway. After all, Toby Fitzgerald is the boyfriend everyone wa…

Amy's Mega Christmas Giveaway!

I wanted to plan a Christmas giveaway for my readers but didn't know which book to giveaway. Well, when I asked everyone for their favorite book of mine, there was an overwhelming answer of The Summer Unplugged Series. So I figured, why not, and I'm going to give away signed paperbacks of THE ENTIRE SERIES to one lucky winner! It would be $111 to buy them all on Amazon, but you can win them here! Woohoo!
That's all 10 original Summer Unplugged books + All 4 Summer Alone spin off series books + All 3 of Jett's series books, 17 books in all! (There's one book missing from the photo because I couldn't make a collage out of an odd number of books)
But that's not all!
Because I love you all so much, I'm doing two giveaways for many chances to win!
The Grand Prize winner will get all 17 books in the Summer Unplugged Series, but 5 other secondary winners will get one paperback of their choice, signed, plus bookmarks from me and other authors.
Also, if you…
