Bumped is a fantastic read! Hope you enjoy it!
I'm really looking forward to Mercy--can't wait to hear what you think!

Alexa - Isn't Sarah a riot?

Slowest Bookworm - Aww, you've never been? That is terrible! My fingers are crossed that some authors head your way in the near future!

Jessica - I can't wait to read Mercy too. I hope it's as good as it sounds.

My anxious life - First book signings are awesome! Glad you had fun :)

Lauren M - I'm not getting my hopes up about Bumped, but my fingers are crossed that I'll be pleasantly surprised.

I'm curious at which end of the spectrum you'll be with Bumped. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it!
I wasn't a HUGE fan of The Demons Lexicon, but felt like maybe the second book would be better. I think maybe the characters were JUST starting to grow on me and things were getting more interesting. I'll have to give the second book a try. Someday.
