Pitch Wars Mentor Book Spotlight with Tamara Mataya!

Tamara Mataya Facebook  |  Twitter  |  Goodreads  |  Amazon Tamara Mataya is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, a librarian, and a musician with synesthesia. Armed with a name tag and a thin veneer of credibility, she takes great delight in recommending books and shushing people. She puts the ‘she’ in TWSS and the B in LGBTQIA+. MISSED CONNECTIONS Amazon  |  Barnes & Noble  |  iBooks  |  Books A Million  |  !ndigo  |  IndieBound Missed Connection: I saw you standing there, and I was struck by your eyes. Gorgeous, but not as gorgeous as your smile. Thanks to her job at a crazy New Age spa, what should have been a sizzling NYC summer is being hijacked by demanding hippie bosses. To unwind, Sarah spends her nights cruising Missed Connections, dreaming of finding an uber-romantic entry all about her. Of course, the moment she finds that Missed Connection, real life comes crashing down around her in a night of unbridled passion with someone completely different: totally off-limits Jack. Best. Hookup. Ever. Gorgeous and wealthy, hot as sin, Jack can give Sarah everything she needs—except an emotional connection. That she gets from her Missed Connection, the romantic stranger who never fails to make her swoon. But there’s only so much of Sarah to go around. Torn between the bad boy she can’t keep and the sensitive stranger who bares his soul online, her heart and body are soon in two very different relationships…or are they?...

Pitch Wars Mentor Book Spotlight with Gail Nall!

Gail Nall Website / Twitter / Facebook / Kidliterati Gail Nall lives in Louisville, Kentucky with her family and more cats than necessary. She once drove a Zamboni, has camped in the snow in June, and almost got trampled in Paris. Gail is the author of the Aladdin/S&S middle grade novels BREAKING THE ICE, the YOU’RE INVITED series (co-authored with Jen Malone), and the upcoming OUT OF TUNE (11/8/16) and SEVEN SIDES TO EVERY STORY (co-authored, Summer 2017). She is also the author of the young adult novel, EXIT STAGE LEFT (Epic Reads Impulse/HarperCollins). OUT OF TUNE Amazon / Barnes & Noble / Book Depository / Books A Million / Indiebound When Maya’s parents sell their house and move the family into the world’s ugliest RV to travel the country, Maya’s only goal is to get back home — and fast. No way is she going to miss the chance to audition for Dueling Duets, the singing competition show that’s going to surely propel her—and her cowboy-hatted crush—to country stardom. But Operation Maya Goes Home turns out to be more complicated than she had expected, so Maya sets out on a secret 100-mile bike ride through Yellowstone National Park with her know-it-all little sister, a cute nature-loving boy, and a blue-haired girl named Shiver (a.k.a. the most annoying person ever). Somewhere between the worst muscle ache she’s ever had and losing half of their group to a flat tire, Maya starts wondering if maybe, just maybe, it’s possible to find home in the last place you expected. OUT OF TUNE releases November 8, 2016 from Aladdin/Simon & Schuster....
