Touching Eternity Scavenger Hunt!!

Are you excited? I am!!

Come one, come all & join Airicka Phoenix's scavenger's hunt!

Below are the rules for the hunt & a sample letter so you know what you're looking for!

Welcome to The Hunt! This event will run for the entire length of October. The rules are simple. Airicka will post 3 blog links on her Facebook ( every morning. Your job is to go through each one of the blogs and find the blog with the button (sample button provided below). Only one blog will have a button each day and it will be hidden in one of their 2012 posts. Each button has a letter that will, in the end, spell out a message. (You might want to save each letter to win a separate prize if you guess the message before the game is over). When you find the button, copy the link above and go to Airicka’s website ( and put the link into the raffle-copter. Easy right?

Don’t want to go searching through posts and blogs? Well, there is an app for that… no I’m kidding, but there is a free pass.

Follow each blog (or page Melissa Andrea Author), leave your name and email address on their rule post in the comment box and the person who has the button will email you back with the link. Then, all you have to do is go to Airicka’s website ( and drop the link into the raffle-copter.

Now for the really important rules.
    ~ Everyone & anyone can participate.
    ~ The link MUST be put PRIVATELY into the raffle-copter on this page. Do Not publicly display anywhere else! if I find that people are sharing the buttons/letters/links, they will be disqualified from the games.
    ~ Do NOT share the link with anyone. Same as above.
    ~ Do NOT tell anyone which blog you found that day’s button on. I’m repeating myself? I know. This is the biggest deal breakers for me.
    ~ If you guess what the letters spell before the game is over, please do NOT share the answer. Privately message me and collect your prize!
    ~ Please DO tell others about The Hunt.
    ~ Please DO ask questions if you have any.
    ~ Most importantly, HAVE FUN!

Flutter Is Finished!

Well for the most part!

I still have a round of edits to do & revisions, but Flutter is done!

I have written a lot before, and other then one other children's book from high school, this is my first completed book!

I think I'm still in a state of shock, and there is some exhaustion mixed in there, but I'm elated, and can't not WAIT to be holding the finished product in my hands!! 
I'm so excited, and I hope everyone loves it as much as I do!

Thank you SO much for everyone's support!

Now to celebrate with another nap!

You can now Pre-Order Flutter on my blog!
Whether you are in the US or International, you can order you're signed copy of Flutter under the Flutters Goodies tab!
If you order between now through October 1st, Flutter is only $12.99, and you'll receive a free signed bookmark as well!
Here is a little Teaser!
I turned around, a failed attempt to walk away when his hand shot out grabbing my arm. He pulling me back, trapping me against him and the wall.
A thrill of excitement shot through my body, leaving me feeling dizzy as he gazed down into my face.
“Not sure I agree with those odds.” Adan said.
“I don’t think you have a choice.”
“I’d say 90/
10.” He argued.
I shook my head. “You can’t come up with your own odds.”
“Said no one ever.”
“It’s cheating actually.”
“Where are you getting these rules from?”
“They’re common rules Adan.”
“Unless they are documented somewhere with some powerful guys signature, I’m going to have to call BS on that. I am model material for bad boys across the world.”
His hands encircled my elbows, caressing the soft skin underneath the edge of my half sleeves, and I fought to pay attention to our playful banter.
