A Sneak Peek and Some Huge News

It’s not my huge news; it’s even better because it’s Shari Slade’s huge news.

If you don’t know who Shari Slade is, you will want to find out. Put her in your Twitter favorites, your tumblr rotation, and most especially your TBR pile because look what I have to show you!!!!

Yes, I think this is four-exclamation-point worthy, don’t you? (I do have some sense of moderation.)

THE BLURB: Callie Evans would rather hide out in her DJ sound booth than face the fact that she’s in love with her best friend, notorious campus hottie Tayber King.

Tayber turns hooking up into an art form–no drama, no commitment, no lies, and nobody gets hurt. Nobody but Callie, that is. When she sees an opportunity to explore his sexier side using a fake online profile, she grabs it. Now her uninhibited alter-ego ‘Sasha’ is steaming up the screen, and Callie’s whole life is breaking all of Tayber’s rules.

As Callie and Tayber get closer, online and off, she knows she has to confess. And risk losing him forever.

Shari’s gorgeous cover was designed by Book Beautiful, and this New Adult Romance will release April 14, 2014. Make sure to add The Opposite of Nothing to your Goodreads shelf.

Full disclosure: I adore Shari Slade. And, in lieu of her official biography (which, if you’re nosy, you can find here) I shall short list why I adore her:

  • Our meet cute: The day after we met (at Wonko Karaoke in Atlanta/RWA 2013), we bumped into each other washing hands (hooray for hygiene!). After we both smiled in the mirror at each other in acknowledgement and recognition, we started talking. And then we grabbed Starbucks. And then we sat next to each other at a session. (And she didn’t shun me when I made tacky comments!)

  • She’s one smart cookie.

  • Miz Shari always makes me smile—even when I’m a crankypants; even when it’s entirely inappropriate and I’m in public huddled over my phone screen with inappropriate church giggles; even when I’m a crankypants. (Yep, that one gets a repeat because anyone who can break through the crankypants is a genius.) 

Oh my gravy, this is hard. I have too many feeeeeeelings. If you need me, I’ll be over in my craft room making stop-animation fangirl videos with be-glittered paper dolls. Or, you know, online glitter head shots. 


Thanks for letting me host a cover reveal for your debut, Shari. All the <3.
