How about a little #ChickLitLove on Valentine’s Day?

Today is Valentine’s Day. You love it, hate it, or are just indifferent. There is one Valentine you can always count on – BOOKS!

If you read my blog, you are aware I’m currently editing my New Adult Contemporary Romance called Pieces of it All. What you don’t know is I have also started a chick lit book! It’s on the back burner while I edit, but that doesn’t mean I can’t spread the “chick lit love.”

A few months ago I joined a group on Facebook called Chick Lit Chat HQ. It’s a group of chick lit writers to share advice, promote books, and just have fun! This year the group has put together a pinterest board featuring the titles of those in the group. You can view the Pinterest board here. You can pin the titles and click on the links to purchase their books. Many are on sale today! There are a lot of talented authors in the group!

Throughout Valentine’s Day, you’ll see the #ChickLitLove hashtag. Check it out, and follow these authors on Twitter and Facebook. If you have a favorite, visit that author’s blog. Many of the authors have been doing special blog posts all week dedicated to #ChickLitLove.

Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, and read a great book!

Cover Reveal: Face Time (Love in the Digital Age #1) by S.J Pajonas

Today I am so excited to bring you a cover reveal for a fellow author and great friend. I was lucky enough to beta read this book, and am thrilled to bring you the cover for Face Time by S.J. Pajonas!

You may recognize the name S.J. Pajonas as this is not the first time I have mentioned her. She wrote Removed and Released, the first two books in her New Adult Sci Fi Romance series. But that’s not all she writes. Face Time is her Contemporary Romance novel, the first in her Love in the Digital Age series.

Here is the info regarding the book, with the awesome cover to follow!

Face Time (Love in the Digital Age #1)
By SJ Pajonas
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Adult
Release Date: April 25, 2014

Blurb:

After the best first date ever, Lee thought Laura was funny, intelligent, and impulsive; a whirlwind of bright laughter and happiness. Laura loved Lee’s sweet smile and the way he expertly filled in every awkward pause. He held her hand and then pulled her in for the most perfect kiss she’s had in years. What could possibly be wrong? Just the 7000 miles that separates them the next day.

Even though Lee has gone home to Seoul, Laura can’t stop thinking about him. What starts as an innocent text thanking him for their dinner date becomes something much more: someone either of them can’t live without. But Laura’s got a live-in mother going through a midlife crisis, and Lee’s stressful traveling schedule means they’ll be apart for some time. Life, family, and a complicated past also get in the way, and they’re both going to need actual face time to figure it out.

Told from both Lee and Laura’s point of view, FACE TIME is a funny, romantic, modern-day story about two people who connect across the world.

You can find Face Time (Love in the Digital Age #1) on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20434205-face-time

Candace Bristol has always been obsessed with comic books, but in a world where the nightly news often mirrors these inked stories, her dreams of becoming a real superhero could actually come true. After being rescued by members of the government’s AdvaNced Genetic EvoLution (ANGEL) Project four years ago, getting recruited for this elite team is all she’s wanted.

Now 18, she’s finally reached her goal after years of study and physical training, but little could have prepared her for life as a genetic experiment.
