Sweetheart Scavenger Hunt Features Author Jennifer Schmidt!

Our final author is Jennifer Schmidt, author of Risking It All. Her short story for the collection is called "Two Pink Lines."


After twelve years of friendship, Memphis and Kennedy Adams took a risk that changed their lives forever. Now, three years later, they’re a happily married, suburban living couple whose only problem is a disobedient puppy. Things couldn’t be going more smoothly for these two—until Valentine’s Day turns out to be more than flowers, chocolates and candy hearts. Kennedy’s been down this road before and it ended in heartache. Will she be able to overcome her fear of the past in order to see the good? Sometimes the best things in life are the unexpected surprises along the way.

Win Two Free Books! Sweetheart Scavenger Hunt Features Sydney Logan


Jada Morgan hates Valentine’s Day—which is ironic, considering she works as a writer for a greeting card company. She meets Nathan Reynolds, one of the new graphic artists, and they bond over their mutual hatred for all things Cupid while working on designs for this year’s marketing campaign. As they grow closer, Jada learns that Nathan is a single father, and she quickly becomes attached to him and his little girl. When it’s time for the company’s holiday party, Jada assumes they will attend together, not realizing Nathan already has a date for the event. Has Stupid Cupid broken her heart once again? A heartfelt story about love, family, and second chances.

Sweetheart Scavenger Hunt Features Sandi Layne!


Sandi Layne short cover
Ten years ago, April Peterson asked her long-time crush, pen pal Lance Corporal Justin Clark, for a date. In shock after his first military deployment to Afghanistan, he ignored her, eventually deleting his email account so that she couldn’t get in touch with him.
When they meet again, April Peterson Sinclair is a widow with a young daughter and Gunnery Sergeant Justin Clark, USMC, tries to show her how he has always felt. Justin asks for a day spent alone together—just what April had asked of him long ago—and during that day, he gets his second chance.

For today's stop, I visited a Romanian book blog, Fantasy World, with an interview about how I wrote the novel. It's so neat to see my words translated into other languages, and the fact that I'm communicating with readers on the opposite side of the globe is really sort of awe-inspiring. It's a great time to be a writer. Their giveaway is active for five more days, so stop by and enter; the prize is available internationally.

Today's featured story from the anthology ... 

"A Piece of Cake" by T.M. Franklin

Emily Valentine is a matchmaker who doesn’t believe in love.

Well, at least not the hearts and flowers, see-your-soulmate-across-a-crowded-room-and-the-world-stands-still kind of love. No, Emily is a pragmatist – a scientist – and she’s abandoned her family’s tradition of matchmaking based on instinct and uncanny intuition for a more scientific approach to pairing people up.

Emily believes love is more about compatibility and common interests than anything mystical.

But a run-of-the-mill job turns her world on end when swoony cake designer Sam Cavanaugh pops up as a potential match for her newest client. The attraction she feels for him throws a wrench in her plans, but she’s not going to succumb without a fight.

Emily is nothing if not practical. And reasonable. But she’s about to learn that sometimes the best things in life…are neither.

Good luck, and happy Valentine's Day!

The Gentleman Gardener by Suzy Duffy.

The flowers might be fresh but Becky’s love-life isn’t blooming. Spring has sprung and it’s looking like another year on the shelf in The Little Flower Shop for Becky. Enter the tall dark stranger who comes calling every Monday but how can she fall for a guy who likes mediocre Mop-heads over zany Zinnias. He might be cute, but he sure ain’t no gentleman gardener. Harder to open than a Dalia in December – Becky and her buddy, Jilly have to resort to every trick in the book to figure out the mystery behind the guy they call The Monday Man.

My story from the anthology:



The Golden Arrow and the Butterfly

Eros is the god of love, but he has never experienced the emotion himself, despite his inexplicable fascination with a beautiful young mortal woman, Psyche. When one of his golden arrows strikes Psyche instead of its intended target, he whisks her away to Olympus, to save her from the fate of falling in love with the next man she sees. Psyche is terrified when she wakes blindfolded, in a strange realm, in the company of an oddly compelling man who claims to be a Greek god. What happens when the blindfold finally comes off?






Good luck, and happy Valentine's Day!

"End of All Things" Blog Tour, Day 6

Today is release day for The End of All Things. Hard to believe it's finally here. It's available at TWCS (which is the best price), iTunes, and Amazon.  
Today's blog tour stop is at Passion for Pages, with a lovely review of The End of All Things, and I'm featured in the Author Spotlight on Sydney Logan's blog. (If you haven't read her Lessons Learned, you're missing out on a real treat.)

Tomorrow begins the Sweetheart Scavenger Hunt, with a prize of a free copy of the new Valentine's Day anthology, Romantic Interludes, and a signed copy book by one of the participating authors.

Day 5 of "The End of All Things" Blog Tour

Lots going on today! First up, my blog tour stop is at Storeybook Reviews with an excerpt from The End of All Things.

Next up, a review at Jade Kerrion's blog.

From that simple premise, Lissa Bryan spins a beautifully written story. The author has a talent for writing deep point-of-view and her main characters, Carly and Justin are wonderfully realized with distinct voices. Both are likeable, and they grow and change as the story progresses and as love blossoms between them.

The drawing over at Ed and Em's Reviews for a free copy of the End of All Things is still going. Stop by an enter!

And, lastly, I wrote an article today at Girl Who Reads on how to research a novel. Check it out! StumbleUpon Share on Tumblr

"End of All Things" Blog Tour Stop & Giveaway!

Today's blog tour stop is at Mich's Book Reviews, where Mich gave The End of All Things a great review. My favorite line: Most authors tend to stick to a certain type of story and find different ways to express it, but not Lissa Bryan.

The giveaway at Ed & Em's Reviews is still underway; stop by and enter to win a free copy of The End of All Things.

The first two chapters of the novel are now online! StumbleUpon Share on Tumblr

Blog Tour Stop: Meet Justin

Today's blog tour stop has something a little different: an interview with one of the protagonists of The End of All Things, Justin Thatcher. Head on over to Sandi Layne's blog to check it out!







Eric Bana as Justin Thatcher
Justin was a fun character to write. Under that tough, no-nonsense military exterior, Justin has a soft heart he tries desperately to protect. Recently, I had to choose an actor to portray Justin and this is who I chose:
