IWSG and I am Alive Book Blitz

Happy New Year everybody it is the first Insecure Writer's Support Group of 2013. Now for my fears for the New Year. Um...well I do have some concerns like ensuring my self published titles to be released this year are done so on time, that my 2012 Nano Gold turned into a dud and that for the first time in my life I will be writing a New Years Resolution. Well more like goals for 2013. I never did this before because I always thought New Years Resolutions were a big let down. I always saw how disappointed people were at not finishing this or that. But I have decided to take the plunge.

So what are my goals you ask? Well I'll be posting them on Friday but I have a few I'll mention right now. One is completing Escaping Wonderland by the end of March so I can start sending it out to agents. This was the good thing that came out of Gold going bust. A new story that has held my interest so strongly it has taken over from all my other W.I.Ps. I have to say I thought Circa was in the best running to becoming the manuscript I'd send out but no...Escaping Wonderland has taken over.Better yet it's what I always wanted to write. A stand alone novel. My other project Nevermore has been leaning towards being a duology since I'm not sure if I want to write one big book. But hey if I think it will succeed as a behemoth of a book. I'll do it. Another is getting back on track with Lyric World and finishing book one by the end of June. It doesn't have to be perfectly polished but it should have at least gone through more than one round of editing. This book was my 2011 Nano and it has always held a special place in my heart because I think it's different from most of what I write because of the emphasis on music.

So that's it for my IWSG post. Please remember to visit other blogs participation and scroll down to read about the I Am Alive Book blitz. I read book one in the series and it was great.

Today as an Xpresso Book Tour Host I'm participating in the I am Alive Book Blitz. This book series by Cameron Jace takes us to a world where your rank is everything and being ranked a Monster changes everything. I read the first book in the series and loved it. You can read more about this series and decide for youselves.

I Am Alive (I Am Alive #1) by Cameron Jace: May 23rd, 2012
Author Note: starting 12/1/2012 this is a newly professionally edited version

Every girl dies - not every girl really lives.

Sixteen-year-old Decca Tenderstone feels captivated when she meets gorgeous and reckless Leo, who is arrogant, silent, beautiful, and shoots almost every one he meets.

the usual boring girl meets badboy story... hmm... with a twist ...

They live in a dystopian future in Los Angeles where every sixteen-year-old is ranked on a scale from one to ten to determine their future. Outranks, who are considered a danger to society, are forced to attend the Monster Show, a brutal sacrificing ritual that is  broadcasted worldwide on live TV, where rebellious teens are labelled Bad Kidz or Monsters and get to fight for their lives in deadly games.

To prove that you're still alive you have to scream I Am Alive every six hours. Lower your voice, and you're dead.

Deccaa doesn't need Leo's company. She has a secret of her own. While they both can't stand each other, she will find out why she doesn't fit into any rank.

Nothing will stand in her way as she has to make choices concerning love, life, staying alive, growing up, and finding out who she really is.



Cameron Jace:Wonderlander, Neverlander, Unicorn-chaser, enchanter, musician, survived a coma, & totally awesome. Sometimes I tell stories. Always luv the little monsters      I write young adult paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and science fiction mostly. The Grimm Diaries series is a seven book saga that deals with retellings of fairy tales from a young adult POV - it connects most of the fairy tales together and claims to be the truth about fairy tales.      I live in San Fransisco and seriously think circles are way cooler than triangles.
