Cover Reveal- Rachel Walter

I am SOOOO excited to be able to present you with the amazing cover to Rachel Walter's next book!! A Message of  Flowers is her first NA novel and you are going to love it. Trust me.

White Carnations - pure love, sweet and lovely.
Daisy - Innocence, beauty, simplicity.

To florist, Georgina Nickols, every flower has a meaning and a purpose. Flowers are something she knows, lives, and breathes. But when they start mysteriously showing up on her porch, she’s unsure of their meaning, and of who is leaving them.
What do these flowers mean to the messenger?

An old friend from high school, Corbin Waylay, moves back to town. When he shows up, he stirs up all kinds of trouble for Georgina. Her life-long friend, Sid Trail, hates him and makes that fact clear to Georgina. But despite the warnings from her friend, she just can’t help the feelings that resurface. The feelings she hasn’t felt for anyone since high school graduation, the feelings that only Corbin can induce.

As Corbin moves closer into her life, it causes a rift between her and Sid. The mystery flowers continue to appear and begin to add to the stresses of life.
Love, secrets, pain, and lies surround Georgina, putting her trust to the test.
When the messenger is finally revealed, will the meaning of the flowers be enough to repair the damage of those hidden secrets?

Forget Me Nots - Remember me forever, good memories, hope.
Single Red Rose - I love you.

Expected Release Date Winter 2013

HUGE Thank you!

I just want to take a little time out to say how grateful I am to be surrounded by so many amazing people. I'm most known on Twitter/Facebook for being a book blogger, 1/2 of  the Crazy Book Chicks, and to most it wouldn't seem I'm terribly shy, but I totally am. Not too many people knew when I was writing my first book but a few selective people. I was so scared about what people would think about Entrelacen, had a tour going on for another author, and taking care of my three boys that I didn't do a blog tour for it. Entrelacen is really personal to me, so part of me was extremely scared to put it out there, but I did. Like a new author, I'm not doing crazy well, but I'm not writing and publishing to try and make an income of it. It would be really awesome if I could, and I'm sure other authors would agree with me when I say this, I write and publish my stories because it's something that needs to written down. If it takes off great, if not, oh well. It's something I've always wanted to do and never thought I could. So when I hit publish that first time, I kid you not, I hid. Actually I published Entrelacen on my 26th birthday so I stayed away from my house and internet connection so I couldn't torture myself. Did it do awesome... for me hell yes! I was ecstatic that it sold one copy, let alone what it actually sold. Is it a lot, not by some peoples standards but for me it is.

So then another story came about. one night. I'm real big on paths and believing things happen for a reason. One night talking to someone, we got on the topic of how we as humans deviate. How the temptation, emotions, or even just life can cause you to move away from the "right" path. Then again whose to say what the "right" path is? That's how Deviation came to be. I'm pretty open with the experiences I've gone through it my life, if you have a question, I'll do the best to ask. If you've read Entrelacen or even my bio, you might see that I've adopted my three boys. Nevaeh's story was something that needed to be told. It was a drive for me, constantly pushing me until I finished. Nevaeh was a foster kid by unfortunate events in her life and like some kids in the system, she got dealt some pretty crappy excuses for foster parents. When I was going through the process of trying to get my kids out of the system and into my care, I took a Foster Parent/Adopting class that the state required. I was the youngest person in the class, one of the only single females, and one everyone thought couldn't do it. I learned so much and some things I wish I never had to see or hear. So the things I said that happened to Neveah, happen. It's sad and unthinkable but realistic.

No where am I saying turning to drugs, alcohol, or suicide is acceptable. What I'm saying is that sometimes we live life with blinders on. That if it isn't happening directly to us, we don't see it, so Deviation is just something to think about. How many times have you wondered if you're on the path your destined for? It's never too late to do something you've always wanted to do, to live life to its fullest. So here's where I come to the point of this post, this is for all of you bloggers. There is no way I can ever express how amazing you are and how truly honored I am that you signed up to be part of Deviation's blog tour. I know how busy you are, trust me, I'm trying to do 100 things at once just like you. I may have 2 books out right now, but blogging, organizing tours and cover reveals for other authors is something I love to do. So a big huge THANK YOU to Christopher Chapman ,Kathryn CandaceKellyMeaganNatashaLesleyAvaTess, you all are awesome bloggers and I'm honored to be on your blog! Then another HUGE THANK YOU to Michelle NicolePriyaHelen BoswellMichelle MutoDanielle SibariumMisty Provencher you authors are beyond amazing and completely awed that you posted on your blogs for me. Then there's Christina PryorRachel WalterAllura, and Heather, I owe y'all the biggest hugs and thank you's ever. If it wasn't for y'all, Deviation wouldn't be what it is now. Then the last thank you... to YOU. Yes you. You the reader is probably the most important person to thank because if you love my book you'll share it around. SO thank you for taking a chance on me. I adore each and every one of you!

So that concludes my massively long post about my two books, and my big thank you's. So go pick up my book if you haven't and if you have, go pick up another book by someone else, check out the blogs I've linked to get some amazing recommendations. Read, read, and read some more!

AHHHH so it's here... again!! I'm also doing a blog tour this time so be sure to follow along with it, we have some exclusive excerpts and some chapters in Angel's POV.

     It takes just one week to realize that you’re broken, but not unfixable. ONE week to realize everything doesn’t come with a price. One week to fall in love with love. One week to fall in love with you. 

Family torn apart at thirteen by a drunk driver.
Fifteen foster homes in five years.
Determined to keep everything at bay, Nevaeh Rodgers will do whatever it takes to forget.

        Until she meets Angel Barajas at a party. He can’t keep his eyes off of her. Saving her from a guy at the party and an overdose, he can’t just let her walk out his door. Determined to help her whether she wants the help or not, he sets out to find her and not a moment too soon.
         It takes ONE day to realize the relationship you’re in isn’t healthy and leave. TWO days to realize you’re as pathetic as the loser you stayed with. THREE days to get a combination of drugs out of your system. FOUR days to wish life would end so you can take matters into your own hands. FIVE days to be saved. It takes a week to realize that everything each and every one of those days has in common, is the vibrant blue eyes that are staring at me right now.
