Books Releasing This Week 6/30/2014

Book Blitz - TEACHING ROMAN by Gennifer Albin

We are very excited to be a part of the Release Day Blitz for TEACHING ROMAN by Gennifer Albin.  You can now get your copy today.

Book Summary: 
Jessica Stone has her life in perfect order until her perfectly boring boyfriend Brett puts things in perspective. So when she receives a call to action from her heartbroken best friend Cassie, she ditches her plans for Winter Break in gloomy Olympic Falls and sets off to Mexico for some fun in the sun.

Determined to use her oceanview to prep for her MCATS, she doesn't plan to run into anyone from Olympic State, least of all the cute communications prof she's been crushing on for a year. When he unexpectedly saves the day, the two are thrown together in a distinctly extracurricular activity.

Roman Markson doesn’t expect to run into anyone he knows from Olympic Falls while visiting his family in Puerto Vallarta, especially not a former student. Although Jess Stone has a way of catching men’s attention, a relationship with her is strictly off-limits. However, the rules feel less strict in Mexico, so they agree to a plan: one week in paradise and nothing more.

But avoiding each other back on campus is harder than they anticipated, especially when they can’t stay away from one another. Neither is sure what they have to learn—and lose—before life teaches them a lesson they’ll never forget.
This is the 2nd book in the Good Girls Don't series.

K.A. Tucker Book Signing

To continue what is turning out to be K.A. Tucker week here at Ficwishes, I am going to take today and tell you about my trip to Houston to for a book signing.

The book signing was held last night, June 25, 2014, at Katy Budget Books in Katy, TX.  First of all, I have to say that I could spend hours in this store, just shopping.  They carry both new and used books as well as tons of bookish and gift type items.  For a mom and pop used book store, it is actually quite large, but the signing was really intimate.  The signing did not draw a large crowd and I was a little disappointed for K.A. that there weren't as many people there for her.  She, however, took it in stride and  provided us with a more conversational, book group-style meeting.  It was awesome.

Things I learned:

  • K.A. Tucker is obsessed with water.  (And Chic-Fil-A but I already knew that.)  It seems to be a running theme in hers books.
  • K.A. Tucker is slightly afraid of getting her hands dirty.  Katy Budget Books has a cute tradition of having authors make and sign a handprint to hang on the wall.  K.A. was quite sure we were poisoning her and that she wouldn't be allowed back in Canada until the lead was completely out of her system.
  • K.P. Simmon of InkslingerPR is one of the greatest people ever.  I had actually been suspecting this little fact for a while, but she proved it last night.
  • I have the gift of Unintentional Double Entendre.  There are a lot of phrases that can be taken the wrong way by a group of New Adult readers.  "I ain't afraid of sausage," is one of them.
If you haven't read K.A. Tucker's TEN TINY BREATHS series, I encourage you to begin immediately.  Need more of a recommendation?  As of yesterday, TEN TINY BREATHS is now a USA Today Best Seller

I was able to get my copies of TEN TINY BREATHS, ONE TINY LIE, and FOUR SECONDS TO LOSE signed as well as an autographed copy of FIVE WAYS TO FALL to be used in a giveaway.  My personal signed copy of FIVE WAYS TO FALL is said to be in the mail.
You can pick up your own copies of all of these too:

And you can pre-order the prequel novella now for only $0.99.  (Coming in September)

You can also take your chances and enter to win an autographed copy of FIVE WAYS TO FALL paperback along with FIVE WAYS TO FALL swag with the Rafflecopter form below.

And before I let you go, I simply must tell you about the new series that K.A. Tucker has coming up beginning this fall.  In October we can expect BURYING WATER.  (See the Amazon description below.)

The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

ABOUT K.A. TUCKER: Born in small-town Ontario, Kathleen published her first book at the age of six with the help of her elementary school librarian and a box of crayons.

Image Map

William Morrow is thrilled to publish Noelle August’s BOOMERANG (William Morrow Trade Paperback, On-sale: July 8, 2014, ISBN: 9780062331069; $13.99), the latest hot summer read! Readers can’t get enough of New Adult lit, and Noelle August is at the forefront of this phenomenon. With genre-bending characters, drama, and a fresh, fun premise, BOOMERANG showcases a hilariously charming, deliciously sexy style.


—a Boomerang novel—
By Noelle August

“August…delivers a solid new adult trilogy launch. Mia and Ethan alternate viewpoints in this engaging story of young up-and-comers balancing responsibilities and desires.” – Publishers Weekly

Boomerang is the dating site for millennials, but their offices might be even steamier than the hook-ups people find on their website…

Welcome to BOOMERANG, the hottest recent startup in the trendiest city: Los Angeles, CA. The website’s about no-strings, no-fuss relationships for those on the rebound and those who crave connectionwithout all the baggage of long-term promises.

But that buzz is fading as Boomerang struggles to grow. The solution? Find two brilliant interns and give them a crack at launching the site into the stratosphere.

Enter Mia Galliano and Ethan Vance. Mia is an aspiring filmmaker with killer curves and gorgeous, curly locks. Ethan is a hot, blue-eyed go-getter who has just played his last game as a collegiate soccer star. They’re both sharp, hungry for success, and they share a major secret.

Ethan and Mia aren’t strangers. The night before they start their new jobs, Ethan and Mia meet at a bar and fall into bed together…or did they? Though they’re both hazy on the details, they definitely do know how awkward it is when they find themselves in a post hook-up taxi…to the same place: Boomerang headquarters.

Turns out they both got the gig, and now they’ll be competing for one job at Boomerang. Even better? The company’s strict policy about inner-office dating. Simply put: they can’t.

But their connection is as powerful as their ambition. Will they manage to keep their eyes on the future and their hands off each other? Find out this summer!

BOOMERANG will be available wherever books and e-books are sold July 8th, 2014 (ISBN: 9780062331069 | $13.99 | e-ISBN: 9780062331076 | $2.99).

Question: What do you get when friends pen a story with heart, plenty of laughs, and toe-curling kissing scenes? Answer: Noelle August, the pseudonym for renowned editor and award-winning writer Lorin Oberweger and New York Times bestselling YA author Veronica Rossi, the masterminds behind Boomerang.
