25,000 Likes Giveaway!

by tarasivec on June 30, 2014

YOU GUYS!!!!  I cannot believe I have 25,000 Facebook likes on my author page!  Holy cow!  Before I get to that, there are a few updates I need to give you.

1. I’ve gotten a bunch of messages regarding the 4th book in the Playing With Fire series, Closer to the Edge. As you might have noticed, it did not come out in May like it was originally supposed to. One of the downsides of being an author is having entirely too many ideas swimming around in your brain. As I was writing Closer to the Edge a few months ago, I had a dream about Burned. It hit me so hard that I HAD to put Closer to the Edge aside for the time being. Since C2tE is the final book in this series, I want it to be amazing. I want to end the series as perfectly as I can for all of you. I felt like I was forcing myself to continue writing this story and that is NOT a good way to write. I need to write what I feel and what I’m passionate about and for the time being, that was Burned. Don’t worry, I’m going to be getting back to C2tE VERY soon!  You will definitely have this final book in the series by the end of the year. To tide you over, you can check out the Closer to the Edge Pinterest page :)


2. I don’t know if you saw on Facebook and Twitter last week, but I surprised a book club by showing up at their meeting instead of Skyping them like I was supposed to :) You can check out the video of the entire thing here:


3. I wrote a special, deleted scene for Burned. Did you guys read it yet?!  If not, you can find it here: Burned Deleted Scene

Fantastic idea for a giveaway. I only own a few of the titles, so this win would help keep me fueled in coffee while I read the books. Since it’s either coffee or books in my budget!

I was wondering about #4 but am so so incredibly happy that you wrote “Burned”. I am reading it for a second time. I never read the same book back to back. But I could not stop thinking about this book. I had to read it again right after I finished it the first time. Love your writing!!!


Rae Kay June 30, 2014 at 10:46 pm

I love every single one of your books! Like, I am obsessed with them all, and I can not wait for more to come. Keep it up!


Rae Kay June 30, 2014 at 10:48 pm

“A Beautiful Lie” was amazing! I didn’t think two characters in a book could have so much passion and love or one another, especially with what happened. The book was heartbreaking at times and made me want to scream, but I quickly got over it when it all came together in the end. Absolutely amazing work and story!


Brandy July 1, 2014 at 3:29 am

Thanks for such an amazing giveaway!! You rock!


Yvonne V July 1, 2014 at 4:52 am

Wow. What an awesome prize. I’d be the most popular book slut in school with all your books!!! ;)


Janell July 1, 2014 at 6:42 pm

Just wanted to say I love your Chocolate Lovers / Chocoholics Series. Can’t wait for the next book


Silvia July 1, 2014 at 7:54 pm

The Deleted Scene is JUST SOOOOO BEAUTIFUL…..why delete it?????? Colin is one of only other 3 in my Best-book-boyfriend (and let me tell you that I read 4-5 books a week, so I know of book-boyfriends lol!)
Thanks for your stories, for sharing them, for letting us in your creative world and live in it through your wonderful books! Always a fan and always waiting for your next story ;)
