About the Author:
Patty Blount grew up quiet and somewhat invisible in Queens, NY, but found her voice writing smart and strong characters willing to fight for what’s right. Today, she’s the award-winning author of edgy, realistic, gut-wrenching contemporary and young adult romance. Still a bit introverted, she gets lost often, eats way too much chocolate, and tends to develop mad, passionate crushes on fictional characters…and actors like Gilles Marini….and Sam Heughan. Okay, so Patty’s not nearly as cool as her characters, but she is a solid supporter of women’s rights and loves delivering school presentations.
Patty is best known for her internet issues novels, including SOME BOYS, a 2015 CLMP Firecracker winner and RWA Rita Finalist, and SEND, a 2012 Junior Library Guild Fall Pick. Her upcoming release, SOMEONE I USED TO KNOW, has already been selected as a 2018 Junior Library Guild Fall Pick. Visit her website at pattyblount.com, where you can sign up for her newsletter. She blogs at YA Outside the Lines and is also active on Twitter and Facebook. When she’s not writing, Patty loves to watch bad sci-fi movies, live tweeting the hilarity, and scour Pinterest for ideas on awesome bookcases. Patty lives on Long Island with her family in a house that, sadly, lacks bookcases. She loves hearing from readers, especially when they tell her she’s cool (even though she knows it’s not true), and is easily bribed with chocolate. Never underestimate the power of chocolate.

Publisher: Lynn Veevers
Series: The Chloe Shipton Series
About the Author:
Lynn Veevers is originally from Washington State. With her mother being from Christchurch, New Zealand and her father being a well-traveled retired Navy Chief, Lynn has always had a fascination with different cultures around the world. An avid reader, she prefers books that take her to a place she’s never been and teach her something new at the same time. The Young Adult Genre is her absolute favorite to read, so it comes as no surprise that it is also her favorite to write. Lynn, on average, pens two to three novels a year with the sequel to Pinnacle in the publishing process now!
Today Lynn lives with her husband and kids in Southeast Oklahoma. Her young adult and adolescent children are supportive and avid beta readers of her work and give her a straightforward and honest point of view about how authentic her characters voices and personalities are for their age group. What better reference than someone close to the same age as the main character. Her kids always have and always will be her greatest inspiration.
Lynn is offering one lucky winner a $25 Amazon Gift Card! If you would like the chance to be entered in this giveaway, please click on the Rafflecopter link below:
So you’re probably wondering what is up with the blog of late. I know posts have been scarce, since October, and I wouldn’t blame anyone for bailing on following. Truth be told, I was anticipating returning to blogging sooner than this and with a bit more consistency. Sadly though, life just keeps getting in the way of things, and for that I apologize. We all go through moments where things just become too much and we need to step away for a bit. This has been one of those moments for me. I’ve always said that should the time come where I ever feel like this is a job, I’d quit. And while some of the joy have diminished, the flame hasn’t completely gone out.
But I need time. Time to get my bearings straight, time to figure out what I can and cannot do. I’m not going to make any promises, not going to commit to any set schedule, nor engage in a lot of author tours. Mostly because I’d hate to say I’m going to do something and then not have it come to fruition. I also want to avoid burnout, which is something I suspect played a part in my walking away these last few months. I’m not giving up because I’ve put too much work into this site to simply let it all go. So what I am going to do is continue to keep this blog going, whether I post once a week, once a month, or whatever. There will be new content, but it will be sporadic for now. It’s my hope you all understand and don’t judge me too harshly.
Ok, so I lied, I’m going to make one promise, and one promise only. The cats and I will return to reviewing soon. Until then I greatly appreciate all of you who have stuck around.
Purrs and murrs to you all!
Cameron and the Felines =^.^=
