Dark Moon by Jeannie Gerber

Love, love, love meeting new authors. I met Jeannie Gerber at this year’s Mothman Festival and learned about her passion for writing. She has now published her first novel, Dark Moon (Full Moon Series #1). Here’s a look…

A dark seeded teen fights her way through the perils of high school, the everyday hassles of authority, social pressures, depression, crash dieting, disgusting acne and repulsive roaming-hand dates.  Surviving all of that, Allessandra soon finds out she has an identity that has been hidden from her for nearly seventeen years.  Her life will be turned upside-down when a hypnotic state of euphoria leads her on a journey she would rather not take.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Raised in the small community of Jones’ Creek on the Chesapeake Bay in Baltimore, MD, Jeannie has always dreamed of being a writer. She began seeking any information she could find available from short stories, journalism references and various motivational speakers. The majority of her learning materials were library “How To” books and works of  popular authors, such as Shakespeare, Agatha Christie and Dr. Seuss. Writing is her passion, and her creative juices are on a roll!  So enjoy her first novel Dark Moon and stay tuned in to Amazon.com for future books of the Full Moon Series.

Social Media: What works for you?

vintage-social-networking

This week the YA Author Club talks about social media. I had to include the graphic above. I ran across this a year ago and keep a copy by my desk. It makes me smile.

I’m lucky to have a couple of friends that are social ninjas. I can go to them from time to time for advice. And that’s my advice to you. If you don’t know what you’re doing. Find someone who does. Every network has its own set of unspoken rules. Breaking those rules can harm your reputation online.

I’m also a bit of explorer (actually it’s more of a mindless wanderer thing); whatever Read More

Just Released: Thundering Luv

ThunderingLuvOne of the coolest things I’ve done as a writer was last Fall when I participated in LM Preston‘s Facebook Party for the release of The Pack. I hosted a couple of hours from my laptop in the bleachers while waiting for my son’s football game to start. I laughed so hard I cried as we played games like Who’s your favorite Kick-butt Heroine? and Caption this Pic.

So when L.M. told me she has just released her newest book, I had to give her a mention. It’s a YA summer romance. I’m luvin’ the cover. Looks like a good one. Check it out at
