Big Announcement!!

For those of you that have followed me from the beginning, you know that one of my favorite authors is Jeri Smith-Ready, So I'm absolutely beside myself in excitement to announce that I will be hosting the

SHIFT Blog Tour!

About SHIFT (Shade, Book 2) by Jeri Smith-Ready:

Aura’s life is anything but easy. Her boyfriend, Logan, died, and his slides between ghost and shade have left her reeling. Aura knows he needs her now more than ever. She loves Logan, but she can’t deny her connection with the totally supportive, totally gorgeous Zachary. And she’s not sure that she wants to.
Logan and Zachary will fight to be the one by her side, but Aura needs them both to uncover the mystery of her past—the mystery of the Shift.
As Aura’s search uncovers new truths, she must decide whom to trust with her secrets…and her heart. (May 3, 2011 Simon Pulse)
