Countdown ARC giveaway!

Today marks the 4-month countdown to the publication of IMPOSTOR!
I can't believe we have less than half a year left!

To celebrate this special day, I'm giving away a signed ARC of IMPOSTOR!

CAN TESSA POSE AS MADISON . . . AND STOP A KILLER BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE? Tessa is a Variant, able to absorb the DNA of anyone she touches and mimic their appearance. Shunned by her family, she’s spent the last two years training with the Forces with Extraordinary Abilities, a secret branch of the FBI. When a serial killer rocks a small town in Oregon, Tessa is given a mission: she must impersonate Madison, a local teen, to find the killer before he strikes again. Tessa hates everything about being an impostor—the stress, the danger, the deceit—but loves playing the role of a normal girl. As Madison, she finds friends, romance, and the kind of loving family she’d do anything to keep. Amid action, suspense, and a ticking clock, this super-human comes to a very human conclusion: even a girl who can look like anyone struggles the most with being herself.

There are several pieces of good news I'm sitting on right now (blurb-y things among them), but hopefully I'll be allowed to share them soon!
This giveaway is international and open until January 31st! I'll announce the winner February 1st.

Happy new year!

Last January I wrote down a few resolutions for 2012. Here they are:

-         write two books
I wrote only 1 book this year, but I edited two other books, so that counts for something, right? 

-         read a minimum of 80 books
I read 82 books!

-         eat less meat (only once a week)
This was a HUGE success. I haven't eaten meat since June. My husband and I are now even following a vegan diet at home! And I've never felt better. I've lost 33 lbs since June and the husband even 38 lbs! There are two amazing blogs that helped me tremendously: 
If you're interested in eating less meat, or just eating more healthy meals, you should check them out!

-         work out on my elliptical every day. 
Well, I have been working out about two times a week. But I'm planning to work out more often in the future.

-         Have more patience 
FAIL. I'm just not the patient kind.

Now comes the fun part, my resolutions for 2013:

- read a minimum of 85 books
- write two books (I think this year I'll actually manage to do it!) 
- start a writing diary where I write down my daily word count to keep track of my progress
-  lose another 20 lbs

What are your resolutions for 2013?
