Happy Friday, everyone!

To celebrate the release of WHERE SILENCE GATHERS, I want to give away two audio books. I've listened to it and the narrator,  Jorjeana Marie, does such an incredible job. This giveaway will end on the 25th and winners announced on the 26th. You will need an Audible log-in to use the code I give you. And, just in case you don't  know what the book is about:

For as long as she can remember, Alexandra Tate has been able to see personified Emotions, and she's found a best friend in Revenge. He's her constant companion as she waits outside Nate Foster's house, clutching a gun. Every night since Nate's release from prison, Alex has tried to work up the courage to exact her own justice on him for the drunk driving accident that killed her family.

But there's one problem: Forgiveness. When he appears, Alex is faced with a choice—moving on or getting even. It's impossible to decide with Forgiveness whispering in one ear . . . and Revenge whispering in the other.

Good luck and have a great weekend!

Friday Five (5/16/14)

1. This blog has been pretty inactive the past few months, to say the least. But now that I'm officially graduated, I'm hoping that will change. Oh, do you like how I just casually slid that in there? Because I'm still so excited that I managed to pull it off. All the work, all the sweat, all the tears! It was worth it, because now I have an English degree to show for it. Of course, there's still a lot of school ahead - I'm a masochist like that - but this is a huge victory for both myself and my family. The fact that I messed up twice during the ceremony barely fazed me.

2. Moving sucks. Right now my tiny apartment is full of big boxes. It's amazing how much crap I managed to accumulate in two years. Most of it I'm selling or donating. Where am I moving, you ask? Just to another place in town, only this one will be full of roommates. I thought about vowing to buy less books so I wouldn't have to buy Ramen Noodles or share a place with anyone else, but who am I kidding? Hopefully that shiny new degree will help soon.

3. Over the summer, I'm working at a restaurant as a server. I have no prior experience in this setting, so it's been interesting, to say the least. I've only messed up about three hundred and twenty-nine times. Anyone who thinks serving is oh-so-easy, I welcome you to try it for a day. At least I haven't dropped a giant tray of food... yet.

4. TV shows have been wrapping up. This year I watched The Originals, Nashville, and The Big Bang Theory. Either I'm way too easy to please, or there are just some excellent writers working in television. I will admit to getting teary-eyed at least once. Also, who's keeping up with Game of Thrones? No spoilers, but Peter Dinklage deserves an Emmy for his performance this week. 

5. This past month I learned just how much I love my dogs. Dawson got... a couple of things removed. He was sent home with a cone and some painkillers. And my puppy proved that he was able to contort his body in such a way that he could still lick the stitches, because a couple days later there was an infection. After another trip to the vet, he was sent home again, this time with antibiotics and a bigger cone. I was cautioned to make him rest, and Dawson is determined to run and jump and play and make me have an ulcer. Seriously, if he wasn't so cute...
