Today is the print release day for LADY OF SHERWOOD!
(If anybody's wondering, I haven't quite stopped internally screaming while running in circles. I think that's going to take about a week and a half, really.)
To celebrate, I'm gonna giveaway some signed bookmarks. Here's how it'll work:
If you find LADY OF SHERWOOD out in the wild - in a bookstore, a library, etc - or it's your own copy, take a selfie with it. Then, tag me on twitter - @MollyLouise10 - and use the hashtag #LadyOutlaws. On Saturday, May 20, I'll take however many entries there are, pick 10 random winners (courtesy of random.org), and send those winners a signed bookmark.
If you still need a copy, you can get one at Barnes & Noble or Amazon.
Please, if you read it, review it. It helps tremendously.
I hope you're as excited as I am, and I am really excited. Here's the start of a good week!
Hope & Kindness,
This week has been an utter unexpected train wreck. Most of it has occurred behind the scenes (meaning that it's staying exclusively within the family), But it still carries an impact.
Regardless, we are only 3 days from the release of the LADY OF SHERWOOD ebook!
I am in that ever-so-lovey headspace of being both very excited and very nervous. But I'm going to go primarily with excitement, because tomorrow, April 21, 2017, CTP is throwing a Spring Release Spectacular!
LOOK AT ALL THAT PRETTY!
From left to right it's Shannon A. Thompson, Me, Heather McKenzie, Kristin Smith, and Tamara Grantham. (Clicking on each name will take you to that author's individual website, so you can learn more about them and their books.)
Come hang out with all of us tomorrow from 7:00pm to 9:00 pm EST. Chat with us, ask us questions, and even win some cool stuff. It's gonna be a blast!
Have an awesome Friday, and hope to see you tonight at the Release Spectacular.
Hope & Kindness,
I know I was just way in Boston, but next week I'll be heading south to Virginia Beach for a week away with my parents. I've decided to take along some books I've borrowed from the library, and thought you might be interested to see what's next in my To Be Read pile.
I started Secret of a Heart Note while I waited in the airport for my delayed flight to Boston. I'm very excited to continue reading.
It's that time of year again! I have, for maybe the first time in my adult life, all of my Christmas shopping done before the actual holiday. This never happens. It's usually the day before and I'm still scrambling.
Because it's also the end of the year, I wanted to make a list of books I read this year that I would highly recommend. (I didn't read as much as I wanted to this year, unfortunately, but what I did read I typically really enjoyed.)
And, if you're like me (and how I usually am this time of year and don't have all my shopping done in advance) and still need a holiday gift, you can't go wrong with a book or two.
Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch
I think I read all five books in this series in about four weeks. If you like mystery and you like magic, then this is the series for you.
Temporarily Significant (Author's Website)
Enter Title Here by Rahul Kanakia
I'm only eight years out of high school, but I remember some of the stress of apply for colleges, hoping to get in, and taking an absurd amount of classes senior year in order to make the top ten in my class (I was tenth out of ninety-six). This takes all of my senior year stress and multiplies it by a factor of fifty. There were times I wanted to throw this across the room - mostly because Reshma does not do what you expect her to do - and it's great. The whole novel is brilliant, and I highly recommend it.

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
I basically inhaled the first two books in this series. It's magic, it's mayhem, it's a little dark (sometimes I like my magic a little dark). And it's a very, very good read. There were times I wanted to, again, throw the book across the room, but that also usually means I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

Whatever.: or how junior year became totally f$@ked by S.J. Goslee
Half the time I didn't know whether to thump Mike upside the head or give him a hug. I laughed, I wanted to cry, I cried, and then I laughed some more. And it was another book that didn't go where I expected it to.
This Is the Part Where You Laugh by Peter Brown Hoffmeister
This is one of those books where, when you finish it, you'll shut it softly, put it down gently, and take a deep, deep breath.

Life Before by Michele Bacon
I read it start to finish in five hours. I was incapable of putting it down. I had to know what happened next, and if a book does that to you, you know it's a good one.
Those were my top six reads (in no particular order) of 2016. I recommend them all, especially the ones that made me cry or I couldn't put down. I don't think you'll go wrong with any of them.
For anyone who's curious, my To Be Read Pile going into 2017 is Six of Crows, Little Black Dresses, Little White Lies, Dessert First, To All the Boys I've Loved Before, and Memory & Dream. And that's just the start.
From my family to yours, may you have a joyful holiday season filled with love, hope, and kindness.
The ever-fabulous - and fellow Sommie - Sharon M. Johnston is celebrating the release of her New Adult novel SHATTERED this week! SHATTERED is the second book in Sharon's Open Heart series.
Mishca needs to save her sisters, but only Ryder can save her.
The truth about Mishca’s past shattered her heart. She deals with the pain by focusing on a new mission: saving her newfound family from their creator. With her sisters scheduled for termination, Mishca and her friends set out on a journey up the North Queensland Coast to save them before someone else dies.
Ryder understands the need driving Mischa. It’s in her DNA. But he’s not giving up on the chance they can still be together. She’s the only one to have seen him levitate. The only one to watch the sparks dance across his skin. The only one he trusts enough to know what is in his heart. And now, he might be the only one who can stop Mishca from losing her humanity.
Driven apart by secrets, will they come together in time?
My hands grip the steering wheel so tight my knuckles resemble mini snow capped mountains. I could drive under the truck 200 metres ahead in the opposite lane and end it all. It would be so easily. Accelerate; yank the wheel, and then nothingness. The scenario plays through my mind so vividly I actual wince.
Thanks for stopping by. Browse. Smile. Giggle. And maybe say hi.
