Oh, I just loved the Baby-Sitters Club books by Ann M. Martin, and also anything from Christopher Pike. I loved how he combined suspense with mystery. My favorite was GIMME A KISS (highly underrated if you ask me!). So fun! I'm also a huge fan of J.D. Salinger's THE CATCHER IN THE RYE. I love to re-read the Harry Potter books, and there are a few Jennifer Echols books I like to dip back into as well. GOING TOO FAR and SUCH A RUSH are two of my ultimate faves of hers. (less)

So what is your book about? [cue goodreads description]

Ellery's bought the gun, made arrangements for her funeral, and even picked the day. A Wednesday. Everything has fallen into place.

Now all she has to do i... Read more of this blog post »

LOVED. Such a unique story full of well-developed characters. Leila is the type of warm and stubborn, and brave protagonist I love. And SARIKA. Love that girl. I want a friend just like her. And the romance... 😍

Highly recommend!!

“Remind me again, why are you talking to me? I thought we had an understanding. I said I wasn’t a petri dish and you agreed.”
Erica M. Chapman, Teach Me to Forget

“You should have just left me there.”

He pulls out of the cemetery and onto the road. “Don’t be so dramatic. Besides I told you I would never leave you. Just like you never left me.”

“I think you’ve repaid that debt, Jackson Gray.”

He shakes his head. “So quickly you forget our pact.”

I put my foot on his dash and hold my hands in front of the vents. I still can’t believe he’s still rescuing me, years later. “Who could forget that. You were cowering on the floor of the library.”

“I wasn’t cowering.”

“Okay. You were leaning down to get a book when large bullies materialized in front of you.” I glance at him. “Is that better?”

He rolls his eyes. “No one’s ever done something like that for me before. Even though I’d never admit a girl fought one of my battles.”

I adjust the seat belt so it’s tighter. “Get over it, Jackson Gray. I did what anyone would do.”

“No one else would have stuck up for the new kid.” He shrugs. “Is that the type of person you’d leave freezing in a cemetery?”

“You mean, you’d leave other people freezing in a cemetery?”

He sighs and nudges me in the shoulder. “Just shut up.”
Erica M. Chapman, Teach Me to Forget

“I know what you’re doing.”

“Oh yeah, what?”

“You’re trying to make me uncomfortable.”

“Trying?”

“Succeeding.”

“Good,” I say.

“I’m just trying to help,” he snaps.

“I don’t need help, Tom Sawyer.”

“Fine.”

Rusty Nugent Greetings,

Thanks for your friendship. I am working on my third novel. It's an paranormal, horror, adventure, magical, romantic, dark fantasy book series, named Moonwarriors: In An Blackened Dawn. Take a look at my second novel Moonwarriors: Guardians of the Night. They are about heroic werewolves waging war against evil supernatural creatures. Come by, check out my books excerpts and leave a comment.

Until Next Time . . .
