CA Kunz button

I promised Carol & Adam I'd make them a button for their blog. I'm considering something like this. I might have to tweak it a bit to get it to fit as a button though. Any suggestions?

One Tiny Secret Cover Reveal & Giveaway!

Just one tiny secret…has the potential to ruin everything.

Being the daughter of the sheriff in a small town like Holden Ridge means that Danielle “Dani” Marks’ life is under constant surveillance. She’s made a habit of staying under the radar by being a floater between social circles at school, and up until now this has kept her out of trouble, but that’s all about to change.

After a missing persons case stirs up the entire town, Dani finds herself caught right in the middle of the scandal. When she’s labeled as a possible suspect, things quickly go from bad to worse. Not to mention the resurfacing of an old flame, in the form of her ex-best friend’s swoon-worthy older brother, only makes matters more complicated.

Then an elusive person begins to blackmail Dani by threatening to reveal her deepest secrets if she doesn't cooperate. When she refuses to play along, the person’s actions take a violent turn, and the quaint town of Holden Ridge completely loses its false sense of security.

Who can Dani turn to? Who can she really trust when anyone around her could be a suspect?

One thing’s for certain though…never underestimate the power of one tiny secret.

One Tiny Secret is set to release this Spring!

The 20/25 Giveaway!

I'm feeling quite generous right at this very moment. I don't know if it's from my lack of sleep or my overall excitement from the CRP for ONE TINY SECRET, but I want to do a giveaway!

I'm going to take this idea from the Most AWESOME Adam Kunz! When this blog reaches 20 followers and I get 25 new comments anywhere on the site from 25 different people, I will give one extremely lucky winner a Kindle digital copy of C.A. Kunz's 1st book, The Childe!

So if you don't have a copy yet, or you'd like to give it to someone, this contest is for you!

I'm also going to use Adam's "old school" method of choosing the winner.

 Nothing easier than pulling names out of a cup! 

So share a link to this site, tell your friends about it, tweet about it, blog about it, whatever! Let's see how long it takes to get this thing rolling! As a BONUS, if we meet this goal by Friday night (that's 1/11/13), I'll have another little surprise!


ONE TINY SECRET Cover Reveal Party Heats Up on Wednesday!

Day One of the Cover Reveal Party (CRP) for ONE TINY SECRET started off with a giveaway and excerpt, plus the announcement that Adam would be giving away a framed print of his original hand drawn concept art for ONE TINY SECRET!

Wednesday was Day Two and the party got even hotter!

When the CRP attendence reached 170 guests, Adam revealed to us his hand drawn original concept art for ONE TINY SECRET, which would be part of the FRIDAY'S GRAND PRIZE giveaway!

At 200 guests, Adam announced that he would give one lucky CRP attendee a framed copy of this drawing. And just as before, Adam chose the winner in the most just and fair way possible...

Congratulations Tina!
Next, came the Day Two poll/survey. Today, we had the same choices less option 5, which we strongly urged Adam to post for us on Tuesday...which he did! So in case you forgot the choices we had, I'll list them again.
1) Celebrity pictures of who I envision would play the main characters in One Tiny Secret. 
2) Pictures of what I think the town of Holden Ridge (where the book takes place) looks like. 
3) Teaser pictures of scenes/overall settings/themes etc. 
4) The One Tiny Secret Song Play list

When the votes were tallied, Adam announced that he would be posting #1, photos of celebrities that he feels best resemble the main characters of ONE TINY SECRET! He posted 6 pictures with a little blurb about why he chose the particular celebrity for each character. Each post is shown below.

Those are all great actors! I like all of them! I'm super excited to read ONE TINY SECRET and envision these celebrities as I read through their story.

Adam gave us another surprise...the only conditions were that we had to get 180 guests and there had to be 20 comments from 20 different people. Needless to say, we accomplished that...NO PROBLEM! So, we got.....ANOTHER EXCERPT! Woohoo! Read this spicy little tid bit of ONE TINY SECRET below:
“How much did you have to drink last night?” he asks while moving the damp cloth from over my eyes to back on my forehead.

“I only remember having like two drinks…the shot at the entrance...and the one beer I got myself.”

“Ha, light weight,” he jokes.

“I don’t feel hung over though. I feel drugged up,” I reply wearily.

“Huh...can you open your eyes?”

“I can try,” I reply, slowly blinking my eyes open. Everything’s still blurry, but as I attempt to focus on just Parker’s face, it comes into view. He smiles while letting out a soft laugh, and I smile back.

“Good morning…well actually it’s after noon.”

“Ah crap, what time is it exactly?” I ask, feeling my stomach sink at the thought of my dad sending out a search party with him leading the way, decked out in his uniform and everything.

“It’s about one, why?”

“Ugh, my dad is why. Where’s my phone?” I ask looking around my immediate vicinity to see if it’s anywhere nearby.

“Oh, it’s on my desk. I’ll get it,” he says and then raises from the bed.

The first thing I notice is that he’s not wearing a shirt. The second thing…he’s wearing green and blue flannel pajama bottoms…and they’re riding dangerously low. As he turns around, my eyes can't help but travel directly to the definition just below his hips. Oh my god, his v is perfect. Seriously, when did Parker get this hot? I mean he was hot before, but now, holy shit. And from the looks of it, he may not be wearing any boxers under those pants of his.

I feel embarrassed for staring and avert my eyes. “You’re killing me with your v,” I blurt out.

“My what?” he asks confused.

“Your v. You know, the highly defined hip and pelvic area. Your v,” I reply, taking my phone from his hands.

“Oh, that. Yeah I’ve been working out a little lately.”

“A little?” I murmur under my breath. He just laughs.

I look down at the shirt I have on and it’s definitely not mine. It suddenly dawns on me...I’m wearing his shirt. Tugging on the flannel, “Uh, why am I wearing your shirt? We didn’t-”

“No, nothing happened,” he replies quickly. “You kind of threw up all over your Little Red outfit...and that’s all I had for you to wear.”
Wooo! I told you things were heating up! Are you as excited to read this as I am?

Thanks to the incomparable Ms. Carol, we found out that someone extra special joined our event!

Also, Adam took some time out to recognize the wonderful lady and blog hosting this amazing blog tour & giveaway!

Be sure to give her site a visit and show her some love! 

Only two days down and there has been A LOT of activity at the CRP for ONE TINY SECRET!! I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings? Maybe a playlist or another excerpt?! Be sure to check out this FB event and join the party! CRP for ONE TINY SECRET

Adam Reveals "One Tiny Peek" of ONE TINY SECRET

Tuesday began the week long Cover Reveal Party for ONE TINY SECRET, and Adam started it off with a bang!

The first giveaway, a chance to win any e-book priced under $5.99, would come when the event reached 100 attendees. By mid-morning, Adam posted an announcement that they had reached that goal, and entering the contest was as simple as posting a comment. Adam announced the winner later that evening in the following post:
So, I just want everyone to know that this was a completely random giveaway. To make it fair for everyone I put all of your names on a piece of paper and put them in a box and mixed them all up, hahaha (I know, I'm old school)! Annnnnd the winner is...Tammy Geller Moore!  
Next, Adam submitted a list of five items to vote on by comment. He would post the number with the most votes later in the evening. The choices were 1) Celebrity pictures of who I envision would play the main characters in One Tiny Secret. 2) Pictures of what I think the town of Holden Ridge (where the book takes place) looks like. 3) Teaser pictures of scenes/overall settings/themes etc. 4) The One Tiny Secret Song Play list 5) An unedited excerpt of One Tiny Secret. This "quick poll" lasted nearly all afternoon and sparked many funny comments. In the end, #5, an unedited excerpt of One Tiny Secret, had the most votes! Here is the posted excerpt:
Taking off my slippers, I slide under the covers to warm up. As I go to reach for my laptop, my phone chimes again. Unlocking it, I find that it’s just reminding me of my unchecked Facebook friend request. Tapping on the Facebook icon, I wait for the page to load. Being on the outskirts of town really sucks for internet access.

My eyes grow wide with surprise, and my heart stutters, as I see the picture of the person who sent me the request pop up on my screen. “Parker Reed?” The moment that name leaves my lips, I feel a tingling sensation course through my entire body. The last time I saw his face was like three years ago, and I was making out with it. I used to be attached at the hip and utterly inseparable from his sister, Phoebe. Our best friendship was destroyed by my little…well I wouldn’t call it little…fling with Parker. Phoebe and I are actually on speaking terms now, as of two weeks ago, which I was sure would never happen, in like a million years.

I let my phone’s screen fade to black without clicking yes or no to the request, and then set the phone down by my side. I let out a heavy sigh as I think back to the night Parker and I first kissed. He was a senior and I was a Freshman. I pretty much had a crush on him all my post pubescent life, and that crush was firmly cemented the moment our lips locked.

“No…no you’ve got to snap out of this, Dani!” I groan. “You can’t eff things up with Phoebe again.”
In the early evening, Adam made the cover reveal event PUBLIC. Many more attendees signed up and more giveaways and posts are on their way!

Check out all the fun and giveaways HERE!
