Anomaly is HERE! #YA

anomaly banner new

I’m super excited to help celebrate Tonya Kuper’s release of ANOMALY. Be sure to go grab your copy and head over to her Facebook Page to say HELLO! Tell her Lynn Rush sent you, k?

Here’s the blurb, and you have to admit, this sounds freaking awesome, doesn’t it?

Worst. Birthday. Ever.

My first boyfriend dumped me—happy birthday, Josie!—my dad is who knows where, I have some weird virus that makes me want to hurl, and now my ex is licking another girl’s tonsils. Oh, and I’m officially the same age as my brother was when he died. Yeah, today is about as fun-filled as the swamps of Dagobah. But then weird things start happening…

Like I make something materialize just by thinking about it.

When hottily-hot badass Reid Wentworth shows up on a motorcycle, everything changes. Like, everything. Who I am. My family. What really happened to my brother.Existence. I am Oculi, and I have the ability to change reality with my thoughts. Now Reid, in all his hotness, is charged with guiding and protecting me as I begin learning how to bend reality. And he’s the only thing standing between me and the secret organization that wants me dead…

And guess what…we have a little surprise for ya. A little I Say, You Say from Josie and Reid!!!

I Say, You say

It’s word association. I say a word and the main characters of Anomaly, Josie and Reid, give me the first word or image that pops into their head. We gave the words to each of them at separate times so they wouldn’t be influenced by each other.

Sharing Locks-Will You Join Me?

Cutting my hair for someone who might need it for a wig because they’re facing hardship…it’s an honor.

My mother-in-law didn’t quite lose all of her hair, but I’ve had friends faced with needing a wig, so I’m happy to cut a few inches to help those who might need one. 

Have you ever done it? If not, will you join me?

Whether it’s Locks of Love, Wigs for Kids…whatever. I’d love to see your before and afters!

I invite you to post your pictures to my FB Page, share a link here, or whatever works for you!

Long Hair 

Short Hair

Thanks to Great Clips who helped me with this!

Maze Runner Review

Maze Runner TheatreMaze Runner…Hmmm.

When it first came out, I was like, “Maybe.” Had it not been for my good friend, Courtney, I wouldn’t have gone. 

Having said that…I’m kinda glad I went. 


Here’s the synopsis from IMDB

Maze RunnerThomas is deposited in a community of boys after his memory is erased, soon learning they’re all trapped in a maze that will require him to join forces with fellow “runners” for a shot at escape.

Okay, I have to say, THOMAS rocked this character. The whole concept was really awesome. I haven’t read the book or anything, and I hear that the movie didn’t quite live up to the book.

Then again, when DOES a movie do that, right?

Each of the characters were pretty interesting for the most part. And a couple pretty predictable/stereotypical, which was a bummer, but it didn’t overshadow the movie enough for me to dislike it.

I gave it a 7/10 on IMDB–but I probably won’t be reading the books. Overall, this isn’t quite my genre, but I wish all the best for the movie and books.

What’d you guys think of this movie?

Southwest Valley Writers Conference

Last weekend, I got to participate in a super fun conference! Write Outside The Lines

I had a great time teaching Mind Mapping Your Way to Deep Characters! We had fun shouting and what if-ing.  

AND, I even got to meet my editor! Yep. Karen Grove. She edited all the Bound by Hades books!

And yeah, she was as awesome in person as she was over the airwaves.

Here are some pictures (click to enlarge).  

Next IRL Event is: Tucson Festival of Books in March 2015. Hope to see you there!
