I don't really have a favorite genre, but if you give me a King book chances are I'm going to love it. Other authors who line my bookshelf are Orson Scott Card, Kurt Vonnegut, and Mark Twain.

I of course love the Harry Potter series too, I grew up with it, so J.K. Rowling will always have a special place in my heart. (less)

Giveaway!

I wanted to give the new Goodreads Giveaway feature a try. I am giving away 100 kindle copies of Beds Are For Flowers. The giveaway is open from October 22- November 20 and is only available for US citizens (sorry there were no other options–please don’t hate me).

Anyway, I’m excited to give it a try, at the very least I am excited to put my book in the hands of 100 new readers!
