What's Up Wednesday

I've seen this meme around for a few weeks, and today I figured I'd join the fun! 

What's Up Wednesday is a weekly meme, started by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk, geared to help readers and writers touch base and let them know what's up. If you want join in, you can find the link widget on Jaime's and Erin's blogs!

What I'm Reading

I'm embarrassed to admit that I've had the book Shadow and Bone on my Nook for a while. (I'm a spur of the moment book buyer). Anyway, I'm a little over a hundred pages in now, and I'm so in love. Seriously. I used to read a lot of fantasy, but I got away from it in recent years. This book has me wanting to read nothing but fantasy now! The world-building is fantastic, I want to be BFFs with the protagonist, and then there's The Darkling. I love reading a bad boy character, but this one has to be one of my favorites (right up there with Morpheus from Splintered). I'm definitely going to buy the sequel when it comes out next week!

What I'm Writing

I'm finishing up a round of edits for Awesome Agent Suzie! Hope to have them completed over the weekend, and then it's on to the next WiP.

What Inspires Me Right Now

I'd have to say movies. I've been watching a lot lately, at the theater and on dvd. Some of my favorites are Star Trek Into Darkness, Iron Man 3, and Silver Linings Playbook. I still want to see The Great Gatsby and Fast & Furious 6.

What Else I've Been Up To

Nothing too exciting has been going on with me. I've been busy with end-of-the-school year activities with my kids, and now they're home with me. Trying to keep them busy has been...interesting. At least we have a beach vacation coming up in the next few weeks!

I've also been attempting to get into shape. It's sad how much of a slug I've become. So I've been slowly building up by walking/jogging five times a week, and I'm trying to eat healthier. Not so easy when I crave chocolate all the time.

And that's it! 

What have you been up to lately?

Cover Reveal: Addicted to You

Today I'm participating in the cover reveal for my friend Colina Brennan's upcoming release. The cover is fantastic and after reading that summary, I really can't wait to get my hands on a copy!


When twenty-one-year-old Leah Carter's latest one night stand burglarizes her apartment, her roommate forces her to attend therapy for sex addicts. Leah insists she isn't a sex addict; she just doesn't do relationships. After all, sooner or later, everyone lets you down.

At first, the group sessions are little more than an education on how to be promiscuous. Until she meets the newest addict—blue eyes, killer body, and a smile that tempts relapse.

Psychology student Will McLean is posing as a fellow addict while researching a case study on unusual addictions. But the more he learns about Leah, the more certain he is that his desire to break through her walls and unearth her secrets has nothing to do with his assignment.

As the uncertainties spike alongside the sexual tension, the only thing Leah knows for sure is that falling in love would be disastrous. Too bad love might be one addiction she can't kick.

About the Author:

Colina Brennan is a new adult writer with a love for the fantastical and the romantic. When she isn’t writing, she’s attached at the hip to her kids or chasing her dog or daydreaming about what she wants to write next.
