A-Z Bloghop and My Release Day!

I've always wanted to do this A-Z bloghop but could never manage to fit it into my schedule. This year, though, I'm excited to be joining in on the fun!


Before we start, I have a fan-diddly-O-tastic announcement:

MY BOOK CAME OUT TODAY!!!!!!!



A spell has trapped them.
Only her tears can set them free. 


In a world where emotions are banished by a spell, sixteen-year-old Ambry Csille must find a vial of enchanted tears and use them to stop the tyrannical Arcaian soldiers from stealing her people's magic.


Find it on:
Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Goodreads




Sigh. I loves it!!!

And now...A - Z Bloghop!!!!!







This year my theme is going to be my favorite musicals! I LOVE MUSICALS. So without further ado, here are my A picks:



I've seen the newer adaptations, but the original is still my favorite. I was in the play as a kid--I played an extra orphan, and since then I've loved the story and the music. I still sing "It's a Hard-Knock Life" to my kids when they complain about things, lol.




Here another I considered--


Annie Get Your Gun. (Love this one, though it's been a while since I've seen it!) I'd heard once that Judy Garland had originally been cast to play Annie, but I'm so glad she backed out!

Congrats on your book release!

I enjoyed Annie as a musical movie, its one of the few where all the constant singing didn't get on my nerves. I have to admit I'm not a big fan of musicals. ;)

I adore Annie! Which was my first Broadway Musical when I was thirteen. Boy time has flown. Congratulations on your book release!

Congratulations!! Awesome day for you.

CONGRATULATIONS! That's awesome! Being an Annie myself (plus having the privilege of playing her in the musical a few years back), Annie has always been one of my favorites!!

Congrats on the release! I was in a High School production of Annie as the orphan Pepper. It was a lot of fun.

Wow, I get so nostalgic over this one. Great musical choice.

Good luck with the 2015 A to Z Challenge!

I love both of those musicals! I've done Annie Get Your Gun, but not Annie (though I love Annie more!)

It's A Hard Knock Life = Annie! :)
Congrats on your release!
