Last day of the Heartbreakers Tour - win a Kindle and a bundle of ebooks!

This week, several YA and NA authors, including me, have been visiting various blogs and answering questions about love, books, music, love, and post-apocalyptic survival (that last one might just be me). At each stop, you can enter to win a Kindle loaded with ebooks by all 14 authors!

My last stop is the home of one of my long-time reader friends, Jennzah! Find out my favorite read of 2013 (I cheated and named an entire trilogy) and what I'm looking forward to most in 2014 (hint: it's blond and muscular and fights for justice).

I'm also at the blog of the tour's lovely host, author Judith Tewes! Find out how This Side of Salvation helped heal my broken heart. Judith also asked me my top 5 most heartbreaking songs and movies. LOTS of tears were shed during the compilation of this list. I needed massive ice-cream therapy afterward, but it was worth it to share my favorites with you.

Here are this week's earlier stops, all in one convenient location:

Little Library Muse asked whether I preferred writing the bad guy or good guy. Also, find out which scene in This Side of Salvation always melts my heart.

For What It's Worth (run by one of my favorite people, Karen) asked what I would need in the event of an actual Rapture, and how David and Bailey from TSOS would spend Valentine's Day.

A Life Bound by Books asked me what I hope readers will take away from TSOS, and how I'd described David and Bailey in 5 words or fewer.

A Simple Love of Reading asked us to describe our most romantic moment, and which literary character embodied romance for us (hint: the one I picked is in an upcoming movie).

Writer on the Edgeeeeeee (Ashley Poston) asked us to describe our first kiss and when, during the writing of our story, we realized this is it.
