Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge Results

You guys are too good for me! Everyone who played the Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge this week got it right. Unfortunately there were only five players. For those of you who didn't play, the correct answers were:

Ellen Page. Inception. Subconscious.

This week's winner is a fairly new player, Nikki. Congratulations, Nikki. Your $10 Amazon gift card will go out later today.

I am going to put the challenge on hiatus for a while. I don't know if the low turnout is because of low interest, the new format, or the time of year. I am going to contribute it to the time of year. It's summer, and people are spending time outside, enjoying the good weather. So the challenge will not be returning until the fall, or even winter. As you know, my new book, Boyfriend From Hell, comes out in September. The sequel, Earth Angel, comes out in December.   This is a very ambitious production schedule. I am just now starting the marketing for Boyfriend from Hell, along with the edit for Earth Angel, so I will be having a very busy summer.

Still, I will be checking in each week, keeping you up to date on what's happening with me, the book, and my boring life... Just kidding.  My life is not boring.  How can it be?  My dream was to write for a living, and that is what I do.  I really hope I can count on some of you to go out and buy the book when it comes out in September.  You know, help keep my dream alive. Those of you that have won a free ARC, I hope you will write an Amazon review and recommend it to a friend.

And please, tell your friends about the Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge.  We need to have a good turnout for me to keep it going.  Peace.

Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge--New Format

It's time for our next Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge.  I am excited about this week's challenge because we have a new format.  The new format should make it easier for more people to play. It's a word jumble.  Each challenge will consist of three separate jumbles.  Three words you will have to unscramble all relating to the same movie.  The subjects you will have to unscramble are: movie title, name of an actor in the movie, and one word that can be used in a description of the movie.  The three jumbles are not necessarily going to be given in the order I just stated.  Here is an unjumbled example:

The X Men
Halle Berry

And remember, while we call it the Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge, you don't have to enter today. You have 6 days to enter. The drawing closes Sunday evening, so everyone has plenty of time to come up with the correct answer. But just one entry per person will be accepted. The winner will receive a free $10 Amazon gift card. On Monday I will draw a winner from all the correct answers, and post the winner here next Tuesday. Are you ready for the challenge?

Here ya go:
eplen gela



 Remember, this is all from one movie, and may not be in the order stated.  If you'd like to play there are a few things you will need to do to qualify.

1) be a follower of this blog, or...
2) ...follow me at
3) leave a comment on this blog in the comment section on any of my posts anytime during the week of the current challenge. DO NOT put your answer in the comments, instead…
4) send your answer to me at
5)mention the Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge either on your blog or in a tweet the week of the current challenge.
Do 1 +3,4&5, or 2 +3 ,4&5 and you are entered to win. Remember, you must do four things to qualify to win.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on  the new concept.  If you like it or hate it, please let me know.  Peace.

The Early Reviews Are In!

Hey gang! I recently received my first two reviews for Boyfriend From Hell. They're both positive. And the best part is, they're not from stodgy reviewers. They're from readers, like you. Don't you want to know what people are saying about the book? Of course you do! You can find one of the reviews right here: Boyfriend Review.

I have also recently booked two awesome blog tours that begin in August and run through the entire month of September. I will keep you posted on my tour stops as the time draws nearer. And in case you forgot, my launch party is September 10th. I'd like to see most of you there: Free food, free booze, music, a reading by yours truly, along with other surprises. And did I mention it's all free to my friends and fans? If you are planning to be in the LA area in September you need to make this event. If you're not planning on being here, you need to make a special trip. This is an event you won't want to miss.

All for now. Go read my early review. Peace.
