Happy Birthday, Bloomsbury Spark!

Bloomsbury Spark, the YA/NA digital imprint from Bloomsbury Publishing, just celebrated its first birthday — hooray! Much of its success is down to editor Meredith Rich, who gave me my big break and published This Is Your Afterlife. She totally made my year. Congrats to Meredith and to all the talented ‘Sparky’ authors on a stellar first year!

Check out the titles that were released in the past twelve months — there’s a great range, including sci-fi, contemporary, paranormal and romance. I’ve got my holiday reading sorted. Among the great titles coming soon is Eric Smith‘s Inked (January 2015). Isn’t that a gorgeous cover? It was designed by Jenny Zemanek, who also crafted my cover. I’m super excited about Valerie Tejeda‘s July 2015 release, Hollywood Witch Hunter.


Reviewer Lisa Bentley had some very nice things to say about This Is Your Afterlife last week. Go check out her blog. (Thanks, Lisa!) Now, because it’s almost Christmas and it’s Bloomsbury Spark’s first b’day, I’m giving away a Kindle copy of Afterlife. Tell me about the best thing that happened to you in 2014 and you’ll be in the running to win. Entries close 11:59pm December 31, 2014, US Eastern time.
