COVER REVEAL: Faking It by Cora Cormack

Have you read LOSING IT, by Cora Carmack? If not, you need to remedy that pronto. It is such a fun read. I'm a romance junkie, so it was right up my alley. She excels at the awkward, yet wonderful time of meeting someone new and falling in love. Her characters are likeable and the boys are super duper swoon worthy.

The best part? LOSING IT releases in paper back soon, FEBRUARY 26 to be exact. So be sure to pick it up, and that way you'll be ready when the next installment FAKING IT comes out on June 4!

Here is a little blurb:

FAKING IT by Cora Carmack
releases 06/04/2013 from William Morrow Paperbacks

Mackenzie "Max" Miller has a problem. Her parents have arrived in town for a surprise visit, and if they see her dyed hair, tattoos, and piercings, they just might disown her. Even worse, they're expecting to meet a nice, wholesome boyfriend, not a guy named Mace who has a neck tattoo and plays in a band. All her lies are about to come crashing down around her, but then she meets Cade.

Cade moved to Philadelphia to act and to leave his problems behind in Texas. So far though, he's kept the problems and had very little opportunity to take the stage. When Max approaches him in a coffee shop with a crazy request to pretend to be her boyfriend, he agrees to play the part. But when Cade plays the role a little too well, they're forced to keep the ruse going. And the more they fake the relationship, the more real it begins to feel.

And without further is the super hot cover!! 

 RIGHT????? Now you MUST plan on reading LOSING IT, and putting in your preorder for FAKING IT. Get on with it! :) Image Map

A Happy Story

The right head gear is essential.
Once upon a time, there was a girl. She learned to read when she was three. It was her favorite thing to do, and she would go to sleep with a bed full of books instead of dolls. Her favorite place was the library, the book store, or her daddy's lap when he read her a book. Her mother would tell her that she was going to be a writer. She believed her.
Sweet Pickles anyone? The girl has the bad perm, her dad, and her little sister.

Time passed, and she experienced life, death of a parent, sadness,  first love, first heartbreak, first everything, traveling the globe, True Love, marriage, children, and all the while she read. A lot.

Awww, the character building years, and high waist jeans! How sweet.

Raising these jokers put the writing on hold a while! They had to be fed, bathed...and talked to!
 Her family. Her husband is her biggest fan. 

One day, she finally decided it was time. She put all of her heart and life experience into a story titled HEALING GRAVEL. She told her mother she was writing a book. Her response was..."I knew you would".

Fast forward through the process of finding an amazing critique group, revising, querying, contesting, rejection, and here we are. The next step in the process. The one she thought might never come.

The girl has an agent, and she is happy. So, so, very happy, because she couldn't have dreamed up a more perfect agent if she tried.
Lots of smiles lately...and brown hair!

Her journey with said agent began before Christmas (and it started with email in the slush, friends!). It is now official, and she has been DYING to share the news.

That agent is Sarah E. Younger of Nancy Yost Literary Agency, and together they will make that little girls dreams of being a published author come true. (No pressure, Sarah! ;) )
