Happenstance by Jamie McGuire *Cover Reveal*

I am thrilled to share the gorgeous cover and a teaser for
Happenstance
by New York TimesUSA Today, and Wall Street Journal
bestselling author Jamie McGuire


Title: Happenstance 
Publisher: Jamie McGuire LLC (May 9, 2014) 
Print Length: 100 pages 
ASIN: B00JOPR0ZK 

PRE-ORDER LINKS: 


#1 New York Times Bestseller Jamie McGuire returns to self-publishing with this page-turning YA account of Erin Easter, one of three Erins in the small senior class of rural Blackwell High School who not only share a first name, but also their birthday. Erin Easter, raised by a neglectful single mom, keeps to herself and admires Weston Gates from afar. The other Erins, Erin A. and Erin M. are the darlings of the community: daughters of the two wealthiest families in town, best friends, cheerleaders, and everything Erin Easter isn't--and they never let her forget it. Erin A. has even claimed Weston since the 8th grade. 
 
Weston is a well-liked star athlete, and the son of two prominent attorneys. He struggles daily with the pressures of living up to his family name and secretly empathizes with Erin Easter's feeling that she belongs somewhere else; in a different life. Not until he begins sneaking nights out with Erin does he gain the courage to buck expectations and acknowledge his feelings ... both for his future, and for her. 
 
But when a shocking tragedy rocks the tiny town, Erin's life is turned upside down in the best way possible. But when the truth is revealed and everything Erin thinks she wanted falls into her lap, life only becomes more complicated. 


TEASER 
“What are you reading?” A deep voice asked from the seat behind me. 

I barely acknowledged Weston’s question, holding the cover of my book just high enough for him to see. 

He nodded, waiting for me to speak. When I didn’t, he offered a small smile, and began to sit back. “What are you reading?” I asked. 

Weston immediately leaned toward me, sharing his cover the way I had. 

“Piers Anthony?” Weston cleared his throat to stifle a cough, and then smiled. “I like his stuff.” 

I nodded. “I approve.” 

“Good,” Weston whispered. “I was worried.” After a short pause, he leaned into my ear again. “Why don’t you ever talk to me in Art class?” 

We had Art together in seventh period, the class I looked forward to all day. Weston was in there, but more importantly, people like the Erins and Brady weren’t. We were serious about our work, and it was the one place during the school day that I could be myself. 

“I guess I was just busy.” 

“Are you going to be busy today?” 

“Probably.” 

“Well, maybe I’ll get lucky and you’ll take a break.” I turned around to hide my grin, but not before glancing back and seeing the familiar look of hatred in Alder’s eyes. 

Whore, she mouthed, glaring at me.

SMD 2013 Camera Highlight Video

Just before I went to Forks for Stephenie Meyer Day this year I got a new camera. Just like most people I did not read the booklet on how to use it because all you have to do is point and shoot, right?!?!


Well apparently there is a setting on this camera that you can set for it to take short video clips EACH time you take a regular picture. Without me knowing this I had this setting switched to ON!!!


The result of this is a pretty epic video that was made by complete accident. While going through my pictures I found an 8:10 video that my camera automatically made by putting together the short videos from the pictures that I took!!!  #SMARTCAMERA

The video is so awesome and a perfect highlight reel from the EPICNESS that was SMD 2013!!! It did a better job of editing the moments together than I ever could. Thank you camera!!! I love you!! LOL

I am posting the video on YouTube for all to see!!!  TAKE A LOOK!! You’ll see TONS of familiar faces!!!  Canon Power ShotELPH 330 HS is #KeepinTheSparkleAlive!!!
