SOME KIND OF MAGIC Release Blitz with a $50 GC GIVEAWAY!!


"An amazing first novel." —Sydney Landon, New York Times bestselling author

In this sparkling debut novel, Mary Ann Marlowe introduces a hapless scientist who's swept off her feet by a rock star—but is it love or just a chemical reaction?...
Biochemist Eden Sinclair has no idea that the scent she spritzed on herself before leaving the lab is designed to enhance pheromones. Or that the cute, grungy-looking guy she meets at a gig that evening is Adam Copeland. As in the Adam Copeland international rock god and object of lust for a million women. Make that a million and one. By the time she learns the truth, she s already spent the (amazing, incredible) night in his bed.

Suddenly Eden, who's more accustomed to being set up on disastrous dates by her mom, is going out with a gorgeous celebrity who loves how down-to-earth and honest she is. But for once, Eden isn't being honest. She can't bear to reveal that this overpowering attraction could be nothing more than seduction by science. And the only way to know how Adam truly feels is to ditch the perfume—and risk being ditched in turn.

Smart, witty, and sexy, Some Kind of Magic is an irresistibly engaging look at modern relationships why we fall, how we connect, and the courage it takes to trust in something as mysterious and unpredictable as love.

New Year, New Me

This is it! My last semester of college. To be honest, I've questioned before if I would ever reach this point. I can't even begin to explain how proud I am of myself for making it this far!

Last semester I took a fiction writing class, something I was greatly looking forward too. I had not attempted to write fiction for years and wondered if maybe it was a fluke I wrote a novel at all. My ideas took flight, though, and I found a renewed love for writing. I have a new idea I'm so excited about, and even with work and the school still, I want to begin working on it. 

It also blows my mind that at some point this year I could have a job writing and living in a new city and making a new path for myself. Last year I took back my mental health and it was the best decision I ever made. This year I plan to tackle a lot; writing a new novel, taking care of my health, and entering the professional world.
