Heartstrings Blog Tour - 31 August

Day Seven of the tour is the biggest day so far in terms of number of stops.  There is ten stops, count them ... ten!!  Links to their sites are below so please make sure you go and see what they've got to say about Heartstrings.

Hopefully you've been enticed to pick up a copy of Heartstrings as you followed the tour, but just in case you need a bit more encouragement - here are a couple more teasers that were shared prior to the release of Heartstrings.

Heartstrings Blog Tour - 30 August

Day Six of the blog tour with another seven stops.  The support for this tour has been overwhelming and some of the wonderful reviews have brought me to tears.  The blogging community is truly a wonderful thing and I'm proud to be part of it.

No book would be complete with the contribution of an editor.  They add a certain polish to the story and ensure that spelling, grammar and all the really important stuff is just right.  I'd love to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Raelene Green for picking this up quite late in the process and weaving her editing magic.

The other people that make all the difference in the writing process are the beta readers and I had an awesome group of girls giving me feedback along the way, supporting me and encouraging me and helping me make Heartstrings what it is today.  

So a big shout out goes to Debi Barnes, Julie Deaton, Lara Felstein, Kristy Garbutt, Stephanie Harper Mulford, Danielle Hoover, Emily Sarah Lamphear-Mitchell, Katie Mac, Lea Marika, Tami Norman and Elle Wilson.

Blog Tour Day Five sees seven sensational blogs sharing Heartstrings!!  Links to their sites are below, please go and say hi and tell them Heather sent you.

In the lead up to the release of Heartstrings I tempted people with a number of teasers.  While these two were released separately, they are part of the same scene in the book and it's one of my favorites.

Heartstrings Blog Tour - 28 August

Day four and there is again an amazing line up of blogs - links to their sites are below.  
I am so thankful for all the support being given to Heartstrings.

Make sure to come back on 1 September as I have a surprise to share!

Creating characters is part of the writing process that I really love.  Tori and Will first appeared in Love Notes with Charlie and Maverick, so I had a bit of time to think about them and develop them.  Everyone pictures their characters differently, but for me, the following pictures are my perfect Heartstrings cast.

Heartstrings Blog Tour - 26 August

Day Two of the tour sees an even bigger line up of blogs with eight stops today.  Blog links to each of the blogs are provided below so you can go and see what they've got to say about Heartstrings.

I am a huge music lover and music plays a large part in my writing process.  As I wrote Heartstrings I listened to songs and found many that related to elements of the story.  I thought you might like to see the songs that to me, are as much a part of Heartstrings as the characters are.

Book Summary

How do you cope when the people you care for hurt you the most? When the way you feel on the outside, smothers you on the inside. And when you are left to face your demons alone, will you learn that only you have the power to overcome them?

Charlie has never had it easy. Between the constant moving and the incessant fat comments and jokes from her father, her self-worth is nonexistent. Her reflection in the mirror shows her nothing but a plain Jane. Music is the only thing that keeps her sanity in check.

Charlie catches the eye of the town star quarterback, Maverick. With her curves, her brunette hair, and the voice of an angel, Maverick has never met anyone like her. Everything that is different about Charlie just makes Maverick like her more. Unfortunately, Charlie doesn’t see it herself.
Proving it to her may deem harder than he thinks, especially when tragedy strikes and tears them apart.

Now standing on her own two feet she may finally learn exactly who she is, what’s she’s capable of and how very un plain Jane she really is.

SURPRISE!!! Heartstrings has released early!

Heartstrings is OUT NOW!!

I've pulled out all the stops and Heartstrings is available on Amazon NOW!!
No more waiting for Tori and Will's story - go grab a copy, quick!

Book Summary

Everyone thinks of me as this happy and upbeat person. What they don't know is that I carry a deep, dark secret. Something horrible happened to me a year ago, and I have kept it quiet all this time. I was fine for a while, but somehow it’s chosen this time to come back, and it's eating at me--like a cancer.

I need to tell someone about it, I just don't know how. I'm pushing everyone I love away, including my mom and my best friend Charlie.

Then there is Will. Handsome, sweet Will. We went out on a date a while back, but then the incident happened leaving me crushed and him confused.

How do you tell someone you care about all of your secrets, and will they still want you when the truth comes out?
