CONGRATS TO TO EBOOK WINNER @MacDibble! GOOD LUCK TO TODAY’S TWEETERS! [read on for tweet deets ]
Today on the tour I’m excited to be interviewed by Kate’s Reads. She’s a great book blogger and she’s one of my go-to blogs to find out what’s next on my TBR list! Kate asked for an interview and I really enjoyed her questions. It’s kind of funny how some stories just happen. This story is like that. One experience led to another and another and before I knew it, I had a story. TRANSFER STUDENT needed about six years to “cook.” My personal life during the years 2006-2009 played a huge part in informing my characters and the plot. Kate was nice enough to do a book review too, you can read it here!
I hope you’ll check out the interview Thanks for stopping by the tour here and, as always to win today’s EBOOK of TRANSFER STUDENT Tweet [& post ur tweet link here or at Kate's interview]:

They are lights on off-shore oil rigs, just to the south of Santa Barbara. And the night is clear. Beautifully clear. And the colors of the sunset intensify. The off-shore-derreks march south as I fly up California’s coast. And the sea lights up in spots, literally. Tiny galaxies beneath the sea churn, glowing white, yellow, gold, reddish-orange and aqua.
