Big announcement - The Truths about Dating and Mating has a release date!

Hi, all.  Today is an awesome day!  Why?  Because it's something I've been looking forward to announcing for a very long time.  After a few hiccups, I get to finally say:  My book, The Truths about Dating and Mating, is being released soon!  Whoo-hoo!


 Release date:  NOVEMBER 21st!

Blurb:
Spunky Italian coed Ivy Rossini likes to talk and push the boundaries. She gets to do both as she co-hosts Riordan College’s radio program, The Truths about Dating and Mating, alongside her lifelong best friend, Ian Hollister.

Being the only girl who cares to see beyond Ian’s bad boy reputation has its advantages, especially when he’s scaring off the jerks who just want to nail the campus sex-guru. It’s when he’s “protecting” her from the advances she welcomes that she wants to lob him over the head and tell him to butt out. But Ivy’s feels like she’s the one who’s taken a hit when Ian almost kisses her at a party. She knows she should feel relieved when he pulls away, so why is she disappointed instead?

What’s worse, Ivy’s now getting aroused by Ian’s slightest touch and can’t stop entertaining thoughts of a romantic future. But Ian doesn’t do relationships, and she’s not interested in anything casual. In the end, Ivy decides it’s best to keep her growing feelings a secret and hope they’ll pass. However, when Ian begins hinting at wanting to take things to the next level, she’s forced to decide if a chance at something more is worth risking everything they’ve built.

With their friendship and her heart hanging in the balance, can Ivy follow the advice she and Ian give their listeners - to communicate, be honest, and trust in themselves - or will insecurity, stubbornness, and pride ruin any chance of their relationship getting off the ground?



To help spread the word about my book, I'm planning a blog tour and giveaway, and am looking for people willing to host!   If you'd be interested in hosting, not only will you have my eternal gratitude, but you'll be entered in a special drawing that will include a $25 giftcard to Amazon or B&N (winner's choice) and free print and digital copies of my book! 



If you're interested in participating, please sign up in the linky below and I'll be contacting your shortly!  Thank you!

    1. Awesome and thanks! It is a fun title, although I had to put "novel" on there so people didn't think it was a guide. You wouldn't want to follow these two. LOL.

      I'll email you!
