Tuesday Tidbit: HOLD ON TIGHT Is Out! & $10 Gift Card Giveaway

This contest is now closed–thank you to everyone who visited, shared, and entered! Annette is my winner; I’ll connect her separately by email.

Hold on Tight3I was really just trying to pack the most punctuation possible into a single headline.

But it’s TRUE! Hold On Tight is out, and I’m very excited because 5% of my earnings on ebook sales of Hold On Tight until September 30, 2014, will be donated to a non-profit, Ride 2 Recovery, that organizes challenge bike rides to help injured veterans heal physically and mentally. You can read more about Ride 2 Recovery here.


I’m also very, very excited because I. LOVE. THIS. BOOK. I love all my books, of course, because they are all my babies, but this book actually has a baby in it. A SECRET baby. The secret baby is Sam, who is eight. He was conceived during fail-sex on a beach, just before his parents had a big sort-of fight (because I’m the author, and I love both awkward fail-sex and fights-that-aren’t-quite fights). He lives with his mom, Mira, who is a great mom, the kind who works really hard to make a good life for herself and Sam and still has time for Ferris Wheel rides and stuff. They’re doing just fine—or they think they are—until Mira moves far away from her parents to take a job and suddenly finds herself without child care. And then—

And then there’s Jake.

He shows up in the physical therapist’s office and everything changes. Just like that. In an instant. Just like in the romance novels, you know—? Her breath stops, he’s unbelievably good-looking, she remembers all about that last night with him when he—

Well, you’ll have to read to find out. But I’ll tell you some things about Jake.

He’s a soldier. He’s injured. And he’s—well, angry, a little. And scared. He doesn’t feel much like a man.

But that’s about to change, too.
