I have been holding in this news for what feels like forever, and finally, I can shout it from the rooftops!!
From Publishers Marketplace:
Melissa West's PIECES OF OLIVIA, about a college freshman who survived a fire that killed all her friends, and meets an unlikely fisherman who heals her deepest scars -- and opens her heart, to Laura Fazio at Intermix, in a nice deal, in a two-book deal, for publication in Summer 2014, by Nicole Resciniti at The Seymour Agency.

I am very excited to share that I am diving into the New Adult market. I have two books coming out with Entangled Embrace in 2014...and perhaps some additional news to share in the coming weeks. Lots of fun for sure, so to celebrate I'd like to offer a fun giveaway.
This is how this will work: add OVER THE EDGE to your TBR on Goodreads and tweet and/or mention it on Facebook and you are entered to win a signed copy of GRAVITY and HOVER. Already have both books? Well, I love you now, don't I! No problem, I will give you a $10 Amazon Giftcard. Sound fun? Yay!
