This book means a lot to me. It’s been a long time coming, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Thank you to all my patient YA readers who have been waiting for a new Young Adult book from me for quite a while.

7 photographs, 2 weeks, an entire life to get back. No problem, right?

After her stepfather accidentally throws away her high school mementos, sentimental Mariska is pretty sure the world is over. That is, until she comes up with a plan. She’s going to recreate her past, with a little help from her friends.

It’s not easy to rally everyone into helping, especially Caine, who couldn’t be less sentimental about anything if he were a park bench. But from a guerilla kite festival to convincing her ex-boyfriend to recreate her lost prom picture, Mariska is willing to do what it takes.

With a little nudging from Caine, Mariska starts to realize she can’t actually get her past back. And maybe that’s okay. Because while she’s so focused on the past, she’s missing out on the present, where her friends are busy having the summer of their lives. And where funny, quiet Caine might just be the future she never knew she wanted.

And while you wait for the paperback release, you can enter to win one of three copies.

Thank you to all the bloggers and readers who read an advanced copy for review. Your time and kind words make such a difference!

Now, what are you waiting for? Go download a copy and start reading!

Top Ten Clues You Need Gift Ideas

It’s the ideas, isn’t it? Just coming up with something that your loved ones would want or need is the hard part of gift giving. In the spirit of some of the awesome lists for Readers in Your Life or Writers in Your Life that I’ve seen going around lately, I decided to create a list of gift ideas based on the characters in my Christmas story in disguise, Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless. With so many different characters, you’re sure to find inspiration for someone in your life.

Chloe – the classic, shy, introverted book nerd. Basically if it has words on it, you’re sure to please someone like Chloe. That or appeal to her fandoms.

Tyson – ambitious, hardworking, and secretly geeky. Tyson finds a way to enjoy himself no matter what the circumstances. Oh, and he’s definitely a Potterhead.

Sammi – edgy and bordering on caustic, Sammi is hiding a soft nougat center.


Gabe – sportsball all the way. If you can play it, throw it, bounce it, or catch it, Gabe is in.

Zaina – traditional, refined, and beautiful. Just don’t make it all about her looks.


Micah – a sweet, naive homebody. Micah likes it best when it’s helping other people.

JUST A GIRL is here!

1

Today I unleash JUST A GIRL on the world. I loved writing this book. It’s all about music, and rock n’ roll, and the Blues, and women in the music industry, and anxiety disorders, and band life, and falling for the right/wrong person.

I hope you love reading it as much as I loved writing it.

Here’s where to find it:

And if you want to enjoy some of the many songs and artists listed in the book, check out Presley’s playlists here.

Just a Girl_Cahill

In this pitch-perfect novel from the author of When Joss Met Matt (“One of those books that make you forget everything around you.”—Sophie Jordan), a rock ’n’ roll diva must choose between her career and her heart.

After getting kicked out of her own band—by her own boyfriend—Presley Mason finds herself back in Wisconsin, helping her parents run their renowned music store. Instead of belting out powerhouse vocals to sold-out crowds in L.A., she’s stocking shelves and inspecting rental violins. But the shop isn’t all bad: When she’s vacuuming up late one night, she bumps into the guitar teacher with the smoldering amber eyes and the killer tattoo. And that’s when things take an interesting turn.

Presley soon finds that Paul Kellerman is as good in bed as he is on guitar. So why isn’t he stoked to share his band, Jukebox Bleu, with her? Turns out Paul has crippling stage fright, which he’s been self-medicating without much success. But when Jukebox Bleu’s lead singer gets called for military service, the other members beg Presley to front them. Even though she swore never to mix men with music again, the temptation to perform is almost as intense as her chemistry with Paul. Now Presley must decide what’s more important: a second chance at love . . . or rock stardom.

Available from Loveswept Ballantine, February 9, 2016

“Ellie Cahill is definitely one to watch!” raves bestselling author Cora Carmack, and this steamy, upbeat modern romance about connecting in all the best ways proves it once again.
 
Clementine Daly knows she’s the black sheep. Her wealthy, powerful family has watched her very closely since she almost got caught in an embarrassing scandal a few years ago. So when Clementine’s sent on a mission to live up to the Daly name, politely declining isn’t an option. Of course, the last thing she does before boarding the plane is to grab a stranger’s phone by mistake—leaving the hunky journalist with herphone. Soon his sexy voice is on the line, but he doesn’t know her real name, or her famous pedigree—which is just the way Clementine likes it.

Despite all the hassles, Justin Mueller is intrigued to realize that the beautiful brown-eyed girl he met at the airport is suddenly at his fingertips. They agree to exchange phones when they’re both back in town, but after a week of flirty texts and wonderfully intimate conversations, Justin doesn’t want to let her go. The only problem? It turns out that Clemetine has been lying to him about, well, everything. Except for the one thing two people can’t fake, the only thing that matters: The heat between them is for real.

Meet My New Book!

If you’re a review-leaving type person, reviews at Amazon are always particularly helpful. They seem to be the proper sacrificial offering to the algorithm beast that lives under Amazon’s headquarters.  You wouldn’t want to upset the beast would you?
