I haven't done Music Monday in awhile, but I thought I'd bring it back with a CROSSING THE ICE theme! With release day only six weeks away, I'll feature a song from the book's playlist each Monday until the book is released. Music is such a huge part of the story. Today's song is "Your Hands Are Cold" from the Pride and Prejudice soundtrack:

A little more CROSSING THE ICE news - the cover will be revealed on July 10! And if you'd like to receive an Advance Review Copy of the book, please join my street team to find out how!

Happy dance time!! I finished writing CROSSING THE ICE over the weekend!!!! Once I get the editing and formatting schedule finalized, I can give you a firm release date, but it's looking like it will be much earlier than planned :) In the meantime, I thought I should celebrate this milestone by sharing another little teaser!

I have some cover news, too! It's in the final stage of production, and I love how it truly represents the story. There will be a cover reveal a few weeks before release, so if you're a blogger, keep an eye out for information on how to sign up!

Pick the Cover for THE BOY NEXT DOOR

My friend and fellow author Katie Van Ark has a skating romance coming out next year, THE BOY NEXT DOOR (formerly PAIRING UP), and her publisher Swoon Reads is letting us choose the cover! There are four beautiful options, and you can vote between now and June 9. Check them out on Swoon Reads' blog:

Here's a little more about THE BOY NEXT DOOR:

Maddy Spier’s been in love with the boy next door forever. As his figure skating partner she spends time in his arms every day. But she’s also seen his arms around other girls—lots of other girls. How can she make him realize that they can be partners off the ice as well?
Gabe’s relationship with Maddy is vital. He can’t imagine skating with anyone else, and together they have a real chance at gold–maybe even making it to the Olympics! So he’s decided to think of her as a sister. After all, family is forever, but he’s never dated anyone for more than two weeks.
Then their coach assigns a new romantic skating program, and everything changes. Will this be the big break that Maddy’s been hoping for or the big break-up that Gabe has always feared?
