Cover Reveal: Blogger Girl by Meredith Schorr!!

I am so absolutely thrilled to get to share with you the cover for Meredith Schorr's upcoming novel, Blogger Girl!!  When I first started to do reviews, Meredith's debut novel, Just Friends With Benefits, was among the very first books that I reviewed and absolutely adored it.  Since then, Meredith has released A State of Jane, which continued the trend of fabulous reads out of Meredith.  Now her third novel is getting ready to come out and I think you are going to LOVE it! (I know that I loved it!)

Without further ado, get your ooh's and aah's ready....

What happens when your high school nemesis becomes the shining star in a universe you pretty much saved? Book blogger Kimberly Long is about to find out. 

A chick lit enthusiast since the first time she read Bridget Jones’s Diary, Kim, with her blog, "Pastel is the New Black," has worked tirelessly by night to keep the genre alive, and help squash the claim that "chick lit is dead" once and for all. Not bad for a woman who by day ekes out a meager living as a pretty, and pretty-much-nameless, legal secretary in a Manhattan law firm. 

While Kim's day job holds no passion for her, the handsome (and shaving challenged) associate down the hall is another story. Yet another story is that Hannah Marshak, one of her most hated high school classmates, has now popped onto the chick-lit scene with a hot new book that's turning heads--and pages--across the land. It's also popped into Kim's inbox--for review. With their ten-year high school reunion drawing near, Kim's coming close to combustion over the hype about Hannah’s book. And as everyone around her seems to be moving on and up, she begins to question whether being a “blogger girl” makes the grade in her off-line life.

A born and bred New Yorker, Meredith Schorr discovered her passion for writing when she began to enjoy drafting work-related emails way more than she was probably supposed to, and was famous among her friends for writing witty birthday cards. After trying her hand writing children’s stories and blogging her personal experiences, Meredith found her calling writing “real” chick lit for real women.  When Meredith is not hard at work on her current work in progress, she spends her days as a trademark paralegal.  Meredith is a loyal New York Yankees fan and an avid runner.  Blogger Girl is her third novel.

Unfinished Business
An Angela Panther Novel

Angela Panther is an ordinary stay at home mom with a satisfying, albeit slightly mundane life.
Things get a little crazy for Angela when her mother dies and comes back as a ghost.
 It seems Fran's got some unfinished business on earth and she's determined to get it done, no matter what.
 But Fran's not the only ghost with unfinished business and her return opens a portal between Angela and the afterlife. Now every Tom, Dick and Harry ghost around comes knockin' on Angela's psychic door, looking for help.
 And it's a pain in the butt.
 Having her mother around is a double-edged sword for Angela. On the one hand, she's glad to still have the connection but on the other, death has given Fran some annoying abilities and she's seriously trying Angela's patience.
 When Fran tells Angela her teenage daughter Emily is in trouble, Angela decides to let her mother use her ghostly skills to keep tabs on the girl. 
 Well, not all of her ghostly skills.
 But that doesn't stop Fran from causing a little trouble - just to protect her granddaughter, of course.
 Now Angela has to find a way to keep her old life in tact and help the dead with their unfinished business, all while trying to keep her mother out of trouble.
 And it's a lot for one woman to handle. 

IF by any chance, you still aren't sold on UNBREAKABLE BONDS, then check out the snazzy book trailer!  It is fabulous!

Cover Reveal for Sulekiha Snyder's BOLLYWOOD AND THE BEAST

One of my dearest friends, Suleikha Snyder, has just revealed the cover for her new novel coming out in February 2014, BOLLYWOOD AND THE BEAST.

It is all sorts of gorgeous and I cannot wait to read this book!

Bollywood and the Beast is the story of American-born ingenue Rakhee "Rocky" Varma, who just wants to make a name for herself in Bollywood films, and former action star Aslam Khan, whose name is only whispered in passing — as if he's as dead as his career.

When Aslam's troubled brother, Ashraf (last glimpsed in Spice and Secrets) brings costar Rocky home during a location shoot, it's far from a fairy-tale beginning. Aslam is emotionally and physically scarred, Rocky doesn't put up with jerks, and Ashraf...he has his own problems that worry, and bond, the people he cares for.

Please swing by her blog and share all the squee in the world over how gorgeous this cover is!!

I did a guest post!!

When Roxy Rule’s best friend accepts a glamorous new job overseas, she expects their relationship to continue as it’s always been—carefree and easy—until they share a heart-stopping kiss.
While Ollie flees to jolly ole England to live out his dream, Roxy is stuck in New York City working for a boss who makes her want to stab herself with a letter opener. But Roxy’s sure that nothing can come between two lifelong best friends—not even mild jealousy over Ollie’s thriving career or a silly little kiss that meant nothing.
Roxy is faced with an unexpected family reunion when her younger sister Steffi arrives on her doorstep, six months into a pregnancy she refuses to discuss. When older sister Izzie joins them, she’s determined to crack the case of Steffi’s impending motherhood. With the Rule sisters living under the same roof again, Roxy’s quiet little apartment in the city is about to be anything but peaceful.
When she discovers that her seemingly idyllic relationship with Ollie started getting complicated way before he left for London, Roxy must come to terms with her feelings for him, learn to stand up for herself and go after what she really wants.
