Monday Mishmash 7/20/15


Happy Monday! Monday Mishmash is a weekly meme dedicated to sharing what's on your mind. Feel free to grab the button and post your own Mishmash.

Here's what's on my mind today:
  1. Signing at Books-A-Million  I'll be at Books-A-Million in the Stroud Mall in Stroudsburg, PA on Saturday from noon to 3:00 p.m. If you're in the area, come see me. I'll be signing copies of The Monster Within and The Darkness Within.
  2. News!  I'm most likely going to have news to share with you this week. Stay tuned!
  3. Pepe Maurice Pierre, Poodle Extraordinaire  I got to see the cover and illustrations for my upcoming picture book, Pepe Maurice Pierre, Poodle Extraordinaire this past weekend. 
    Pepe is not an ordinary French poodle, and he doesn’t want to be one either. But when Meg, his beloved owner, enters him in a dog show, he tries to be the perfect pedigree. It doesn’t take long
    for Pepe’s differences to make him the star of the show. 
  4. Our Little Secret  I've been busy with edits for my upcoming Ashelyn Drake title, Our Little Secret. I love this story and can't wait for the release, which is happening in September! Tomorrow, I'll be sharing the blurb and tag line all over social media, so stay tuned for that.
  5. Hot Pink in the City Cover Reveal  Check out the cover of Medeia Sharif's upcoming YA title, Hot Pink in the City:
    HOT PINK IN THE CITY, Prizm Books, 2015
Release date: August 19, 2015

Asma Bashir wants two things: a summer fling and her favorite '80s songs. During a trip to New York City to stay with relatives, she messes up in her pursuit of both. She loses track of the hunk she met on her airplane ride, and she does the most terrible thing she could possibly do to her strict uncle…ruin his most prized possession, a rare cassette tape. A wild goose chase around Manhattan and Brooklyn to find a replacement tape yields many adventures—blackmail, theft, a chance to be a TV star, and so much more. Amid all this turmoil, Asma just might be able to find her crush in the busiest, most exciting city in the world.

  1. Is Hot Pink romance? This could be my kind of book!

  3. Pepe Maurice Pierre is adorable. Have fun at your signing.

    Thank you so much for sharing my cover.

    There are a lot of other things going on, but the romantic element is the strongest, Beth.

    1. Thanks! My mom had a poodle with this name, and when she told me about him, I just had to write this book.

  5. My mom got a poodle shortly before I was born. Needless to say, he never liked me much. That puff ball tail was too enticing for a baby NOT to tug on.

  6. Looking forward to your news!
    I'll be up in your area of PA this weekend, but scheduled to be on a white water rafting trip that afternoon. I'd rather get a book signed by you at the mall, since the last time I went rafting I fell out, bounced off several rocks, and came home covered in bruises ... but we are entertaining a guest, and this is the activity she picked!
