NEW! Sarah Porter (Lost Voices) Website

Lost Voices (Lost Voices (Trilogy))Okay, so I have to admit that I am extremely excited to find that the fabulous Sarah Porter has a website now! If you have no idea who she is, you need to get with the program. For real. Check out her website here.


Oh, and I got a spot on her website! Freak yeah! (Sorry. I'll work on curbing my enthusiasm.) Ok, not me per se, but a snippet of my review made it on the website. You can check that out here. Or, you can read my entire review of the phenonmenal, awesome, "insert other adjective here" book by checking out my complete review.

Wait, there is more...

The synopsis from the back cover of book #2, titled Waking Storms (how appropriate) has finally been released! Hooray! As much as I loved the first book, this one sounds even more amazing. Seriously. I knew that the boy Luce saved would be important! All my speculating was right! Here is the synopsis for Waking Storms:

"We have lingered in the chambers of the sea, by sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown, till human voices wake us, and we drown."

After parting ways with her troubled mermaid tribe, Luce just wants to live peacefully on her own. But her tranquility doesn't last long: she receives news that the tribe is on the verge of collapse and desperately needs her leadership. Anais, their cruel queen, wants Luce dead. Dorian, the boy Luce broke mermaid law to save, is determined to make her pay for her part in the murder of his family. And while the mermaids cling to the idea that humans never suspect their existence, there are suddenly ominous signs to the contrary.


But when Luce and Dorian meet, they start to wonder if love can overpower the hatred they know they should feel for each other. Luce's new friendship with an ancient renegade mermaid gives her hope that her kind might someday change their murderous ways. But how can Luce fulfill her rightful role as queen of the mermaids without sacrificing her forbidden romance with Dorian?


Full of miraculous reunions and heart-pounding rescues, this haunting second installment in the Lost Voices Trilogy finds Luce eager to attempt reconciliation with humans—as long as war doesn't break out first.

Still more...

Sarah Porter is also hosting a contest. For all the girls out there that fantasized about being a mermaid (you know you did, so don't deny it), now is your chance to live vicariously through one of the upcoming characters! Porter is offering a "name a mermaid" contest. I love this idea! I was so one of those kids that pretended to be a mermaid in the swimming pool. I even asked for fins for a birthday once. (I'm still working on making a pair. For my neice, of course.) The link wasn't working on my computer for the contest, so I couldn't add it in. If you get it to work, let me know!


Waking Storms will be released July 2012! I can't believe we have to wait an entire year!

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother.

These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America. In an attempt to find a way to exhibit Cassandra’s work at the 1883 World’s Fair, they break into the Inventors Guild—and…
