I think in all of the excitement of getting ready for my blog tour and my book promo, I forgot to post a link to my very cool interview with

Omnimystery News!  

Read "A Conversation with Mystery Author Caroline Fardig" here:

Thanks, Omnimystery News!

If you're in college, loved college, or even remember college, this is the book for you.  My new author friend 

Deborah Nam-Krane

has written a fantastic chick-lit novel about the ups and downs of college life.


Get your copy here or here!  NOW!


I truly enjoyed every moment of this book. THE SMARTEST GIRL IN THE ROOM is a well-written tale of several college students and their academic and romantic trials on the road to graduation.  The characters and their dilemmas definitely took me back to my college years!


Emily has a less than nurturing family life, so she puts everything she has into graduating early in order to become self-sufficient.  Unfortunately, her go-it-alone pride also begins spilling into her personal life, creating conflict between Emily and her friends and boyfriends.


I loved the supporting characters in this book—Emily’s flaky best friend, the nerdy guys in the Solar Car Club, and especially Mitch, the flawed but lovable guy who you REALLY hope Emily ends up with.  I even liked the “bad guys”—they were so perfectly nasty!  THE SMARTEST GIRL IN THE ROOM is the first in the NEW PIONEERS series, and I can’t wait to read more about these characters!


And luckily, we don't have to wait too long, because THE FAMILY YOU CHOOSE is going to be released September 27th!  Come back to the blog near that date and learn even more about Deb and her new book!

About the Author

Deborah Nam-Krane was born in New York, raised in Cambridge and educated in Boston. You're forgiven for assuming she's prejudiced toward anything city or urban. She's been writing in one way or another since she was eight years old (and telling stories well before that). 

She first met some of the characters in The New Pioneers series when she was thirteen years old, but it took two decades- and a couple of other characters- to get the story just right. 



August 26th is NATIONAL DOG DAY!

It’s National Dog Day! 

Here are my two "little" girls, Lucy and Goldie, a 90-pound Boxer and a 110-pound Golden Retriever.  I like big dogs...and I cannot lie.

Get out there and celebrate National Dog Day with your best friend.  It’s hot outside, so for the love of dog, PLEASE make sure to provide proper shelter and lots of water for your four-legged fur-babies.

Thank you, Sarka-Jonae!

I would like to say a huge




to my publicist, and friend, Sarka-Jonae of SJ Publicity


Sarka has worked tirelessly to get my book out in front of the public, and as a result, IT’S JUST A LITTLE CRUSH became a bestselling book this past week.  She has used her connections to get me featured on prominent book blogs, newspapers, and book enthusiast websites.  She has also called up her army of Twitter and Facebook followers to create even more buzz for me.  None of this would have been possible without her!  She even stayed up late with me (chatting over Facebook), waiting for my Amazon rank to update!  Now that's dedication!





A PROPER CHARLIE--chick-lit novel on sale now!

08/26/2013 09:52

My fellow Chick Lit Goddess member, Louise Wise is having a $0.99 sale on her book.  Check it out!


As of NOW until the end of September "A Proper Charlie" by Louise Wise is on offer for under a dollar.


All Charlie Wallis wants is to be loved. Brought up in a children’s home she yearns for love and to be loved back but she seems to attract bad men. The first was someone who dumped her after she slept with him, the second is a womanising cheat and the third appears to be a murderer. Can’t have everything your own way, I guess.


"A Proper Charlie" less than half price on ALL eReaders!

Kobo     Nook     Kindle     Apple


Charlie Wallis has everything a girl could wish for. A loving boyfriend, a nice flat and a fantastic job as a journalist for London Core. Trouble is, Charlie's boyfriend isn’t at all ‘loving’, her job title really reads 'office assistant' and her flat, at the top of a high-rise, isn't that nice either.

Her new boss, Ben, is a huge bear of a man. A gentle giant, with chocolate brown eyes that hold a secret.

While London Core investigates the disappearances of local prostitutes, Charlie wants in on the action, deciding that dressing as a hooker and walking the streets is good research.

Bumping into Ben was the last thing she expected.

Blog Tour--FINAL DAY!

08/22/2013 21:54

On the final day of my Blog Tour, I'm going all the way to Greece to visit Angel Sefer at her blog!  Angel interviewed me and then tweeted her little heart out to help me stay on the bestseller list.  Then I'm back to the US to visit Carolyn Ridder Aspenson at her blog on Goodreads, where Carolyn nicely suggested (read:  insisted) her blog followers get a copy of my book.  And my last stop--Lilian Roberts' blog, where Lilian gave me a great shout-out!

Thank you, ladies!

Blog Tour Wednesday

08/21/2013 21:27


Today the blog tour made stops at author Jami Deise's blog, My Year on Vacation and discussed "How to Successfully Mix Genres", using the new movie We're the Millers as a great example of genre mixing.  I then went to visit author Dianne Berry, a fellow member of the Midwest Writers Guild, at her blog, Rantings from River Bay, for a book spotlight.

Thanks, Jami and Dianne, for hosting me!
