Ashley is a thirty-something perpetual teenager. She (slowly) writes young adult fiction that pulls no punches and rarely conforms to the unspoken rules. Home is upstate South Carolina, where Ashley lives with her daughter, working for a living and striving to better herself and her craft. Her first book will be published in late 2013 by Evernight Teen.
Call me cheesy, but this is one of my all-time favorite songs. Yes I know I’m a sheep, but YOU know you sing along too when it comes on the radio :P
Anyway, if you weren’t aware, Journey has a new(ish) lead singer. His name is Arnel Pineda. He grew up as a homeless street kid in Manila. The band actually found him via YouTube, and the story of how it all happened is told in one of the best documentaries I’ve seen in a while. If you’ve ever tapped your foot or hairbrush-microphone-in-the-mirror’d to a Journey song, then US law requires you to watch Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey (okay, so that’s not true, but you should still watch it).
I ordered something really cool today. I’m so very excited about this. For some crazy reason, I expect everyone else to be as squee-y over it as I am, and hence a giveaway is born. Wanna know what you can win? Wait for it. Waaaiiit for iiiiiiiiit…
Super-dee-duper novella-tastic The Last Three Words bookmarks!
These bookmarks were designed by yours truly, featuring the amazing cover art for my upcoming Evernight Teen novella release. Professionally printed on good cardstock and covered with a gloss coating, these babies should hold up to the most vigorous of bookmarking duties, and look damned fabulous doing it. Accented with a single white feather on an attached satin-like cord, you’ll never lose your place in a book again…if you can bring yourself to remove this beauty from the protective display shelf you’ll certainly be compelled to keep it on.
Okay, so they’re just bookmarks. But still, they’re gonna be super cool!
You know you want one now. Entries are super easy to get. You can even enter every day, if you want. Ten winners will be randomly selected from all entries (the more entries you have accumulated, the better your chances) when I get around to it sometime next Tuesday. Winners will be contacted by Friday November 1 for mailing addresses, and prizes sent out within one week of receipt of info. Good luck and enter often :D

Anne Rice is my literary idol, and I hope to one day be as amazing as she is with description. The way she’s able to pull you into the story’s sights, smells, tastes, textures, etc. has always fascinated me. I can only hope some of that skill has rubbed off on me over the years I’ve spent reading her!
I really enjoy reading anyone with a lush descriptive style, though. My most recent favorite was Leah Raeder’s Unteachable, which makes sense, as Leah is a fellow Rice fan, lol!
Okay, so maybe I’ve been watching too much MLP with my four-year-old and have begun to channel Pinkie Pie, but I can’t help but be excited. The cover art for my novella came in and I lurve it so hard. It’s simple and striking and just yum.
Anyway, click the “read more” to view, and praise be to the team at Evernight Teen and Sour Cherry Designs :)
