    That would be awesome! If any producers are reading this, please contact me. :D I already have some ideas for who I'd like to play the lead roles. :)

    Can you do a Russian accent? ;) I'm not sure if Josh Dallas can, but he's my dream choice. :)

    As a special promotion for Nationals week, anyone who purchases the book between now and Monday, Jan. 30 and emails me the receipt (from Amazon, B&N, etc) will be entered into a drawing for a special autographed item from San Jose. :) My email address is jcomeaux4@gmail.com.

    A little OT, I know, but whatever happened to all those serial fanfics like On the Edge and Rink Rat Rumors after that website closed? Are they archived anywhere else? I feel like a little stroll down skatefic memory lane.

    I'm extending the promotion through Feb. 6 since it's running on my blog and I didn't get my Nationals posts up timely. Enter for a chance to win a poster signed by Meryl Davis and Charlie White! Thanks to everyone who's already sent in their entries :)

    This was a great, quick read. It sucked me in and I stayed up WAY too late last night to finish it!

    Holding another promotion on my blog - all you have to do is leave a comment for a chance to win an Amazon gift card. :)

    Romancing the Valentine Giveaway Feb. 6 - 13

    And some very exciting news - the paperback version of Life on the Edge should be available by the end of the month! I'll update when I get a firm release date on Amazon!

    I started writing it yesterday! Working title - Edges of the Past :)

    If anyone who read the book would like to leave a review on Amazon or B&N, I would be so grateful. I'm always looking for more feedback!

    Just finished it on my Kindle this morning on the subway ride to work. LOVED it!!! I'm a sucker for a good love story, especially one on ice :) Nice work, TanithandBenFan! Looking forward to the sequel!

    Every Saturday I've been posting deleted scenes on my blog as part of the Sweet Saturday Sample series. Here is this week's entry. :)

    The print copy of the book is currently in production!
