Release Week and GIVEAWAY!

Tip of the Day: Check out the way cute ad my publisher is running for Fake Boyfriend-- I love it!


YAY!! MY FAKE BOYFRIEND IS BETTER THAN YOURS came out this week! I'm so excited! And I've been getting lots of good reviews from all the biggies- Kirkus, School Library Journal, PW, and Booklist so I'm a happy girl! In case you're not sure what the book is about, here's the blurb:

Seventh grade was supposed to be fun, but Tori is having major drama with her BFF, Sienna. Sienna changed a lot over the summer—on the first day of school she’s tan, confident, and full of stories about her new dreamy boyfriend. Tori knows that she’s totally making this guy up. So Tori invents her own fake boyfriend, who is better than Sienna’s in every way. Things are going great—unless you count the whole lying-to-your-best-friend thing—until everyone insists Tori and Sienna bring their boyfriends to the back-to-school dance.


I'm giving away a copy of MY FAKE BOYFRIEND IS BETTER THAN YOURS this week on A2A! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post between now and next Wednesday night at midnight EST. Thursday morning I'll announce the winner in my Tip of the Day.

I hope I'm not the only, but just the first, person commenting, but I am very excited about your release! Congratulations!

I've been following A2A for quite some time now and am familiar with several of you and your work, though I am not a YA writer nor do I have children of YA age. My oldest daughter, Coral, is 33 and my only grandchild, Mackenzie, is 7 (who just happen to be mother and daughter)! I have another daughter, Shelly, 30.

After reading the blurb, the premise of the story is wonderful. I have been wondering about it. After all, my fake husband is better than yours! lol.

Good luck with sales, my dear! Prosperous days ahead!

I love to read books and this sound like a fun one. I think my daughter will love it too, she just started 4th grade but is reading between 6th and 6th grade level books, so she will enjoy it. We may even be able to enjoy this book together.
Thanks for the opportunity, Elaine Kontra @Lanieekat
