Thank you to Cherry Blossoms for circulating the press release for IN HIS EYES, a book of YA short stories written from the point of view of hot guys. It's only 99 cents (unless you're Smashwords savvy, then it's free!) Can't beat that, right?

I am SO proud to be a part of this great anthology! Today on Amazon, IN HIS EYES is ranked #2 in both Anthologies and Short Story Collections and #21 in Children's eBooks! WOOT!

And best of all? It's FREE! If you haven't downloaded it yet, now would be a good time! Tell me what you think of my short story Precalculus (a re-telling of Chapter 2 of The Veil, from Luc's point of view).

‎"I was captivated by the characters…spies, mermen, gods, guardian angels and many more…all sharing their stories and their worlds from their own points of view."

Thank you Ana at The Book Hookup for reviewing IN HIS EYES!
