Free Books from Bria Quinlan :)

Did you know that every Thursday I give away e-books on my Author Page? Each week I ask a silly get-to-know-you question and draw a name for a winner. They get to (typically) pick any one of my ebooks for a free download. I also have some other prizes up my sleeve so it’s worth checking back each week! Not playing along?

An Open Letter To Scholastic

Dear Scholastic, I was brokenhearted to read your article about a “Literary Cleanse” that first insinuates that some writings should be thrown out of your life if it isn’t up to whatever the author deems worthy and ends with the statement that romance is trashy, “not good for you,” and on par with the See’s Candy Catalog for reading.

2014 RWA Rita: The Year With No YA

As you probably don’t know (unless you follow a select number of YA writers on twitter) the RWA YA RITA category was canceled this year due to not making the 5% minimum of all the entries. I have several questions about how entries are logged, but was never able to track down any answers for you. I would like to say that, while I love RWA and respect all they do in the writing community…while my membership definitely taught me {Read More}

SECRET GIRLFRIEND – Cover Reveal & Excerpt

Since her mom died, Amy Whalen’s been invisible—but not in the cool, superpower kind of way. Overlooked at school and ignored at home, Amy holds tight to her few constants: running, painting, and her long-held crush on soccer god, Chris Kent. But as senior year nears, Chris doesn’t just notice her, he needs her. Amy will agree to almost anything to be with him. Everything is great—sort of—until Luke Parker shows up for soccer tryouts and sees through every one {Read More}

When Pen Names Collide

I think we’re all on the same page at this point that Bria and Caitie are both me. No more weird surprises for you guys. But, now I’ve noticed something odd… something I noticed before but has become more obvious. Me and the whole New Adult thing. Previously several people had tagged my Caitie books as New Adult. I guess in some ways my characters do fall into that potential age bracket, but I’d always just thought of them as {Read More}
