But in my huge TBR pile are two books by writer-friends that just came out.
The first is RUSH by Eve Silver. I've known Eve for close to 10 years, and she is one of the most generous authors I know. She actually helped me land my first publishing credit, by referring me to the editor of those "Mammoth Book of..." anthologies who bought my short story...
While Eve is a multi-published author in adult fiction, RUSH is her debut YA and I am chomping at the bit to read it.
Her post-apocalyptic romance, DRIVEN, changed my little writer brain.... Check it out too!

Rush pulls you headlong into the thrilling, high-stakes world of Eve Silver’s teen series The Game, about teens pulled into and out of an alternate reality in which battling aliens is more than a game—it’s life and death. This teen debut novel offers science fiction and gaming fans romantic thrills at a breakneck pace.
I'm also very excited to read debut author Kimberly Ann Miller's TRIANGLES.
While I've never met Kimmy, I feel as if I have, and she too is a super generous author. The writing world is filled with so many wonderful people! Kimmy and her sister both picked Advance Reader Copies of DEVIANTS at BEA in 2012, and were so generous in helping me promote it by recommending it to others. :)
Really looking forward to digging into this one! What a cool idea!

A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could possibly go wrong?
In the Bermuda Triangle--a lot.
Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life--her father's death years ago, her mother's medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her--seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she's gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they're a happy couple... a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying "Happy Anniversary"... and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship's doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she's warned that these "alternate realities" could become permanent.
