Best Friends Giveaway!

I don’t know about you, but I don’t know what I’d do without my friends. I have been truly blessed. They have been there for me through all kinds of weird s**t. Bad day.  Bad month.  Bad flu.  Bad boyfriends.  Bad husband.  (Yup, I had one of those before I met my hubby today.)

So, I guess it’s no surprise that friendship is always a strong theme in my books. What would Kylie, Della and Miranda do if they didn’t have each other? How many times did they save each other’s butts? And who can forget their Diet Cokes around the table as they talked out their problems and helped each other with solutions? In The Mortician’s Daughter: One Foot in the Grave, Riley finds a best friend, too. Kelsey is a bit prickly at first.  Oh, but soon she standing up for Riley.  Which leads Riley to stand up for her. It’s a shame that a fight erupts and Riley ends up with pretty black, blue and purple eye.  Then there’s her other friend, Hayden.  The only problem is that he’s dead. But she finds herself relying on him more and more as time goes by, even though she knows she’ll have to let him go.

On February 27th, This Heart of Mine comes out, and like the rest of my books, friendship plays a pivotal role. Leah MacKenzie’s best friend is Brandy. And Brandy is the friend who has stuck by her through her through thick and thin and even her heart problems. She’s the one friend that makes Leah feel like a normal teen. They share their problems and their dreams, even though Leah doesn’t expect to realize any of her dreams.

Last week, I gave you sneak peek of Riley and Kelsey’s world. So, are you ready to meet Leah and Brandy? Ready to be drawn into Leah’s world? I have great news for you! Follow the link HERE, download the PDF and you can read the first chapter of This Heart of Mine.

  1. My best friend, Ashley, oooooh I can say a lot about her. But the most important reason as to why she is my best friend is because she is the one always there for me. I’ll text her anytime of the day and she will answer in a jiffy. When I’m sad or in need of a friend, she’s the girl to call. She the most special friend I have and I don’t want to lose her. I hope we can stay forever friends, even if it is just in my dreams. (But I hope not.)

  2. Hi, my one friend Jennifer (yes we have the same name) we are like kindred souls. No matter how long we go without talking, when you’ve finally get the time to chat it’s Like no time has passed. And we just pick up where we left off.

  3. Hello and thank you so much for this opportunity. My best friend’s name is Abbey. We met each other in 8th grade but we were both oblivious to the fact that we were going to be each others best friends and savior one day. We didn’t really talk to each other till 9th grade and became best of friends. I moved states when I was in 7th grade and never really felt like I fit in. All the people that I met in junior high were all going to a different high school than I was. I didn’t want to get close to anyone and leave again. So I kept to myself and didn’t really have any friends but I had books. Books are my best friend till I met Abbey. Abbey was suffering from depression at the time. When we both got to class we kind of got clued to each other in a way. We didn’t know anyone else so it was just us. We sat together at lunch and telling all the stories that we’ve read. We both have read the Shadow Falls series by C. C. Hunter and that’s when we discussed all that of happened. We both saved each other. We gave each other a friend. Abbey listens. Really listens. It’s so rare to find that now a days. People are so caught up with their social media and their phones that they don’t pay attention to the people in front of them. She doesn’t care about that stuff and neither do I. She’s honest and loyal. All the things that I value. I can tell her anything and I know what I say she will keep it with her to her grave. I told her things that I never told anyone before. She is a thoughtful person. She thinks about other people more so than herself. We supported each other through thick and thin. Today, she got out of her depression and I finally found my best friend for life.

  4. I have been blessed to have a few best friends. One in particular has been in my life for over half my life. We have lived a state away for many, many years now but we are always there for each other and when we finally do get to go out, it’s like no time has passed. We’re there for each other no matter what .

  5. My new friend Endora is awesome. I met her in my Mythology class and we have soooo much in common. We’re both geeks for mythology, we both write, we both read (some of the same authors, even). She waits for the bus with me even though she drives to school, and she checks in when I’m not in class. She even forwards her notes without my having to ask. She rocks, and I expect we’ll be friends for life and not just the semester

  6. My friend is my Twin sister Tammy. We share a bed and stay up late making jokes and laughing until my parents yell at us to go to bed. I can go to her about anything and I know that she will always listen. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. We are going to be friend for life. We have our future mapped out already. We are going to live together and go to the same college. I love her!!

  7. I am still very close with a few friends I’ve known since grade school. Cassie is a phenomenal cook, not afraid to try anything. She is so generous with her time and her laughter is infectious. She is not one to sit still, always doing something. I can talk to her about anything! Julie is another one that is always there for me. She is always so positive. I have so many great memories with those 2. A fourth friend in our group – Val – sadly passed away last year. She was all about her kids. She was great at instigating so many things we did. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about her.
    I am so lucky that so many years later, we still hang out on a regular basis, many other friends joining our group, but these 3, I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for them!

  8. My best friend’s name is Pauline. I met her in my first year of college.
    The thing is, we are pretty much polar opposites (except from the fact that we share the same sense of humor). I am blonde with green eyes, I a dreamer, a little shy and introvert but I am very passionate about writing and reading, I am quiet, I almost never get mad and I dont cry easily. Pauline is a redhead with big blue eyes and a crazy temper, she’s never afraid to try something new, she is loud, reckless and she speaks with a lot of animation (like an Italian lady). She gets mad very quickly and she crys a lot when she is nervous. She wants to save the planet and she is realistic.
    She is practical and knows how to find her way almost anywhere. I can’t barely read a map.
    See, we are total opposites. But that is why we work so well. She is always pushing me to follow my dreams and encourage me to be myself and not be so afraid of trying new things. I am so grateful to have her as a friend. I try to teach her to think before acting and going compltely ballistic when things are not going how they are suposed to. After all, life is full of surprises and we should take them as gift or an opportunity to become stronger.
    After three years of friendship, I am much more brave than I used to be. I have become a better person, someone I can be proud of. And I am pretty proud of her too <3.

  9. I am lucky to have two friends who have stuck with me through everything! Actually, one of them came into my life just before one of the worst times, and I am so grateful to her. Andrea I have known since birth, and Darcy came into my life a year before I had a freak downhill skiing accident where I broke my neck and ended up paralyzed. I lost so many friends after my accident that I thought I would end up alone because nobody knew what to say or do. Then there were Andrea and Darcy. Andrea was a comfort; someone who knew everything about me and reminded me of the good in life. And Darcy, well, she was the kick in the pants I needed to keep moving on and not dwell in my own hole of sorrow. There’s never a dull moment with them. We’ve pulled each other out of many rough spots, and I’m glad to say they are both still there. A little older maybe with kids and families, but they always include me! I couldn’t ask for two better friends and love them more than I can put into words.

  10. It is very true where would we be without our best friends. Where I work there is 6 of us that send time outside of work ” girls night”. The best way I can describe us is GOLDEN GIRLS. One Christmas one of the ladies bought everyone golden girl tee shirts. We all would do anything for each other.
