So not only is this Friday and the start of yet another weekend, but it's also Labor Day weekend, which means LONG weekend! Woot woot!!! Well it can't get any better than that, you may say BUT I would say, AU CONTRAIRE, MON AMI! Why? Because tomorrow begins COLLEGE FOOTBALL season!!! Yes, peeps. I am a true, down to the marrow of my bones, die hard college football fan. I think a lot of it has to do with being raised in Texas where we practically eat, breath, sleep and sweat football on almost every level (High School, College, Professionally). So this weekend I will be spending my Saturday tailgating and scarfing down grilled food as I watch my baby brother play his very first college football game. *pauses* *sniffs* So proud of him. GO ROAD RUNNERS!!!
But any who...
So I'm sure we all know what time it is...it's BIG NEWS FEATURE FRIDAY!!! I have to say I really do enjoy doing these posts as much as some of you seem to enjoy reading them. It's definitely an interesting way to meet and find new authors that are out there that I never would have thought to search out before.
This first feature author is one of the MANY reasons why I love twitter so much, it connects you with some of the coolest people on the planet. Author M.R. Merrick writes YA fantasy and debuted his first novel EXILED in June of this year with reader reviews that will rock your socks off. EXILED is being called "Legendary", "a breathtaking..." "heart-stopping debut" novel for this young writer. I've already gotten my copy. You can buy your copy of EXILED, now available on Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords.

Tyra Lynn is a YA paranormal writer from (my home state) Texas, and the first book of her YA series TEMPUS was released in May of this year. Tyra's novel is being called "refreshing" and a "must read" by readers. So if you haven't, then you should definitely put TEMPUS down on your must read list. You can find this engaging paranormal romance now available on Amazon & B&N!
