Book Blitz ~ The Secret Diamond Sisters by Michelle Madow

The Secret Diamond Sisters (The Secret Diamond Sisters #1)
Release Date: 02/25/13
Harlequin Teen
381 pages

Summary from Goodreads:
Savannah. Courtney. Peyton.

 The three sisters grew up not knowing their father and not quite catching a break. But it looks like their luck is about to change when they find out the secret identity of their long-lost dad—a billionaire Las Vegas hotel owner who
wants them to come live in a gorgeous penthouse hotel suite.

Suddenly the Strip's most exclusive clubs are all-access, and with an unlimited credit card each, it should be easier than ever to fit right in. But in a town full of secrets and illusion, fitting in is nothing compared to finding out the truth about their past.

"Sexy and often electrifying ... Gossip Girl meets The Princess Diaries in a city that never sleeps." 

"This quick and entertaining read is filled with glitz and glamour ... get ready for one crazy and fabulous ride." 

--RT Book Reviews

Courtney is sixteen years old, and is the middle Diamond sister. She’s the responsible one—she studies hard, does well in school, is a student tutor, and works after school and on weekends to help out her family. Her main goal is to keep up her grades and do well on her SATs so she can get into Stanford, her dream school. She wants to major in English and someday get a career in publishing. She’s competitive with herself and always strives to do her best.

Courtney’s closest friends are her sisters—with all the time she spends on school and work, she doesn’t have time for anyone else. She’s never had a boyfriend and is fine with waiting to date until college. (She doesn’t need any distractions right now!) She’s not into the high school party scene, and whenever she has time in her busy schedule, her favorite thing to do is read novels. She also loves listening to Broadway music (Phantom of the Opera and Wicked are her favorites) and would love to see a live show someday.

She’s a natural early bird, and is always awake before her sisters. She could happily wear jeans, t-shirts, and flip-flops every day, and always goes natural with her makeup. Her favorite drink is chai tea. She’s quiet and reserved while first meeting someone, but she will do anything for the people she loves. She would love to travel the world to see historic sites and well-known museums, but it’s always felt more like a dream than a possible reality.

The Making of Waken

When I first started writing, it was with a complete lack of understanding about pretty much every aspect of creating a coherent and original story. Not that I let that stop me. I kept writing, disregarding all of the authors who said that the first book I wrote would be put in a draw, never to be seen again. Luckily, for me they were only almost right, otherwise Waken would never have been published!

The first draft of my story was called The Evolution of Janie. After several title changes (and seven years), I finally settled on Waken.

There are a few scenes which bear similarities to scenes throughout Waken, and the spirit of the main characters have remained the same. But the actual content of that first draft is gone. Thank God!

So what major changes did Waken go through? Well, it's a long list :)

Top 5 Changes Waken Went Through

1. Names - Janie became Anya and then back to Janie, while Tristan was originally Marcus, then Davin. You can thank my fellow author Apryl Baker for Tristan's final name after she braved my wrath and told me she basically wanted to puke every time she read the name Davin!

2. Summer - The story was once set at the beginning of the school year, but I decided it was too similar to Twilight which was at its peak during my writing.

3. The piano - There was once a scene where Janie played the piano in front of her class, in rewrites I realized that Janie wouldn't want to put her talent on display and that it was too private for her to do in public.

4. Location - Everod, Colorado was once Everett, Montana, then I went up to Telluride with my husband and loved the area so much I moved the story there.

5. The Wolf - I was always hesitant to write a straight-up werewolf story. I tried to skirt around it with shapeshifting, and the myth of the Raven. Finally, I just admitted that I wanted to do werewovles.

Sneak Peek ~ Watch Me by Angela Fristoe

I've hit the 20% complete mark so it's time for another Sneak Peek of Watch Me (A Touched Trilogy, #3)!! Best of all is that tomorrow I will be featured on Apryl Baker's blog, My CrAzY Corner as part of the YA/NA Blogfest and it will feature an exclusive look at Chloe from Watch Me!

Sneak Peek - Watch Me by Angela Fristoe

I went from class to class, and everything was normal. Something that was easier to do with Bianca in some of my classes. During gym class, we ran together around the track. Despite her shorter legs, she managed to keep pace with me.

“You should have joined the track team,” I said, my words coming out in even puffs as I kept my breathing regulated.

She snorted. “Track involves teams and I don’t do teams. Unless of course it’s like Team Peeta.”
“You’re only Team Peeta because you know in really life he wouldn’t have stood a chance.”

“And you’re only Team Gale because next to Peeta, you’d be a giant.”

“Bitch,” I said, laughing. She was right. Josh Hutcherson was hot, but way to short for me.

“I call it like I see it.”

Bianca took off at full speed and I sprinted to catch up with her, over taking her for a few paces and then slowing as we finished our last loop around the track. We walked around along the side of the track a few yards then sank to the ground to stretch.

“I’m destined to live a life of short-leggedness,” she groaned.

Destiny. I let the word roll through my mind. It was a pretty word. Like fate. They sounded so sweet and hopeful. I wonder if people would still feel the same about those words if, they knew what I knew. Fate and destiny sucked. They were the future. There was no choice.

“Do you believe in fate?” I asked, looking over at Bianca.

She paused with her hands wrapped around the tips of her toes. “Is this a trick question?”

“No. Wait, what do you mean trick?”

“Come on, Chloe. I’m not Nada,” she said, using her nickname for Nadine, who would probably be a bit miffed if she knew that it wasn’t the Mandarin word for girl, but instead Bianca’s subtle joke that Nadine had nothing in her brain.
