    image.axd Goodreads Summary:

    Champion kickboxer Haley swore she’d never set foot in the ring again after one tragic night. But then the guy she can’t stop thinking about accepts a mixed martial arts fight in her honor. Suddenly, Haley has to train West Young. All attitude, West is everything Haley promised herself she’d stay away from. Yet he won’t last five seconds in the ring without her help.

Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things:
1. She is not crazy.2. Her mother was murdered.3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay.
As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her–so there’s no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door who is keeping an eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.
Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her unpretty thoughts. But they can’t control Grace–no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do.
Her past has come back to hunt her …  and if she doesn’t stop it, Grace isn’t the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world all stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down.

Official cover AND back cover copy AND a two chapter excerpt?! Oh happy day!
All Fall Down: an Embassy Row novel, coming January 27, 2015.

    For two days all I’ve done is watched the Big Bang theory. I had a moment where I told my mom I felt like I was getting fat just for sitting around all day and she said, what did you say? You mean you’re getting skinnier right? And then she proceeded to tell me not to be so negative and think positively.
    There are moments where I’m like mom, thank you for being an awesome human being.

    "Subplots bring realism to your main plot simply by existing – by interrupting the flow. Why is this? Because life doesn’t move forward all at once. Interruptions happen, change rushes in, we juggle three or ten balls at once. Readers don’t expect continuous narratives."

    Apparently it was my time for tumblr to unfollow people without my consent. If I was following you and I no longer am, it’s tumblr’s fault, blame them. Now to figure out everyone it unfollowed.
