Guest Post: Allie Brennan (giveaway!)

Thank you, Nyrae for letting me commandeer your blog today to show off my shiny new book!

When I decided to commit to this writing game, everyone thought I was crazy. And I mean everyone... Including me.

But here I am a few years later with a shiny copy of my debut novel, TIGHT KNIT. Most people still think I'm crazy, but what I think is crazy is the amazing response I'm getting to a story that is so close to my heart.

To show my appreciation I am traveling the blogs of a few of my biggest supporters, cheerleaders, reality-check-givers and midnight email responders to give away my book!


TKcoverKindle / Kobo / Paperback

Talia Gregory relies on her Nan for everything, especially helping her calm the anxiety that controls her life. But Nan gets sick, and it couldn’t be worse timing. Talia’s panic attacks are getting worse, her boyfriend is a jerk, her best friend is distant, her parents are more absent than usual and she’s stuck planning the Cozy Christmas Charity Drive for her knitting group in place of Nan. If that’s not panic inducing enough, enter Lachlan.

Lachlan McCreedy doesn’t rely on anyone. Not after what he’s been through. It’s him and Gram, nothing else matters but keeping his past buried, and his secrets hidden. So when Gram forces him to help with her Christmas sale, Talia is the last thing he expected, and trusting her with his secrets comes as a shock to both of them. But when he unexpectedly falls for her, the question becomes can he trust her with his heart?

~Mature YA~


I began stalking, I mean following, Nyrae when I read her book WHAT A BOY WANTS and fell in LOVE with Bastian. I had no idea that Nyrae would become one of, not only my favorite authors, but my favorite people!

So this week on Nyrae's blog I am going to give away a copy of TIGHT KNIT plus a copy of one of Nyrae's books to TWO lucky commenters! If you've already read all of Nyrae's books then I will gift a copy of one of her books to someone of your choice!

All you have to do is leave a comment with your email address and two people will be chosen at random on Friday, January 18!

Kindle only. My most sincere apologies! I'm Canadian so Barnes and Noble won't let me buy books there...or sell them... I know, right!?

Stop by my blog all this week to see behind the scenes of TIGHT KNIT. Playlists, inspirations, processes, a couple signed paperbacks up for grabs AND a special surprise!
