Cover Reveal: The Summer I Became A Nerd

Today I'm excited to be a part of the cover reveal for The Summer I Became A Nerd by Leah Rae Miller! Doesn't it look fantastic? 

On the outside, seventeen-year-old Madelyne Summers looks like your typical blond cheerleader—perky, popular, and dating the star quarterback. But inside, Maddie spends more time agonizing over what will happen in the next issue of her favorite comic book than planning pep rallies with her squad. That she’s a nerd hiding in a popular girl's body isn't just unknown, it's anti-known. And she needs to keep it that way.

Summer is the only time Maddie lets her real self out to play, but when she slips up and the adorkable guy behind the local comic shop’s counter uncovers her secret, she’s busted. Before she can shake a pom-pom, Maddie’s whisked into Logan’s world of comic conventions, live-action role-playing, and first-person-shooter video games. And she loves it. But the more she denies who she really is, the deeper her lies become…and the more she risks losing Logan forever.

There will also be a Marked-to-Read contest on Goodreads in the weeks leading up to THE SUMMER I BECAME A NERD's release on May 7, 2013. Watch Leah’s site,, for details on how to submit/enter to win.

Born and raised in northern Louisiana, Leah Rae Miller still lives there on a windy hill with her husband and kids. She loves comic books, lava lamps, fuzzy socks, and Cherry Coke. She spends most of her days reading things she likes and writing things she hopes other people will like.

Let's NaNoReviMo!

So I was feeling a little left out with lots of writers participating in NaNoWriMo. I participated last year and had a BLAST, but this year I'm knee-deep in revisions so no NaNo for me. *cue sad violin* Anyway, as I was procrastinating preparing to revise this morning, I stumbled on a blog post by Peggy Eddleman sharing info about something called NaNoReviMo. What's that? Well, it's a support network for writers stuck in the Revisions Cave (and you know how lonely the Revisions Cave can be), and it's being organized by Jessie Humphries. So of course I clicked over and joined. Because let me tell you, having a group of writers to support you is waaaay better than sitting alone day after day, trying to motivate yourself to revise. So if you're stuck in Revisions Hell, join us! :)

Now without further blabbing by yours truly, here are my goals for the month of November.

1. Identify all of the remaining parts of my WiP that need to be cut (because it's sitting at 96K right now and it needs to go on a serious word diet. ;)

2. Rewrite new scenes or revise what I already have (you know, whatever needs to be done to make the book all SHINY).

3. Find a few more beta readers to read once I'm finished (which WILL be on December 1).

And there you go. So what are your goals for November?
