Eighteen-year-old Benjamin Nefer seems to have it all: great looks, incredible football skills, and smooth moves that have won—and broken—the hearts of countless girls at his high school. But his hellish home life has left him feeling empty inside, unable to experience real feelings. He thinks he’s fine being this way forever…until he meets a beautiful and witty seventeen-year-old girl named Charlotte “Charlie” Austin. She may be new in town, but she’s already been warned about Benjamin’s reputation, so it’s easy for her to shoot down his advances. Like him, she’s happier keeping people at a distance, especially since she, too, has secrets she’s not ready to share with anyone. But as the tentative friendship between the charismatic football captain and the new girl grows, Charlie finds herself feeling closer to Benjamin than she’s ever felt with anyone—and he wonders if he’s really capable of loving after all. Can they drop their guard, or is this so-called romance just another game?

A Little Valentine's Day Love

Loving for love this Valentines? Check out "Of Love and Magic"! Five romantic tales wrapped in magic  coming out on February 1st. I've read Sherry Gammon's story and I adore it. It's such a cute story about an angel who answers prayers and gets a little more than she bargained for on her new assignment. I haven't read the others, but I have read some of Cami Checketts' other book and enjoyed them, so I'm guessing this one is also good.

Here are the blurbs for all the books and a link to preorder your copy!

Available for preorder on

Five intriguing romances wrapped in love and magic

  • Angel in a Black Fedora, by Sherry Gammon: Ciel Bj√∂rk died a tragic death...but she got over it. Now she works as an undercover angel, answering people’s prayers. She’s sent to the sleepy little town of Port Fare, New York to help turn Chloe’s dreams into reality. As secrets are revealed, Ciel soon learns that things are not as simple as they seem.

  •  Wish in Her Hand, by Amberlee Day: Professor Miri Keeler's life is perfect, and she knows just the sort of man she wants to share it with. When she meets a genie who's willing to grant her a favor, she uses her wish to get the attention of her crush, poet Jamison Arbor. But has the genie's magic missed its target? Miri suddenly has the attention of not only Jamison, but also of Alex, an attractive maintenance man. How will she know which is the right match for her, or what's real and what's magic?

  • Reality Ever After, by Cami Checkett: Pregnant at eighteen, Sydney Richland's happily ever after is in serious peril. Her grandmother's ghost can work miracles, but she also might ruin Sydney's chances with the man of her dreams.

  • Prom Diaries, by Taylor Hart: Sixteen-year-old Lacy O’Donnell discovers her best friend has cast a spell, putting everyone in a time loop, forcing them to relive the same four days before prom over and over. The good thing—Lacy doesn’t remember the loop. The bad thing—Drake Davis, the guy she’s been stalking, does. Only true love’s kiss can break the spell, but true love’s kiss has to happen at a precise moment. It’s not exact science…it’s exact magic.

  • The What If Wish, by Lucy McConnell: Morana is doomed to a life cataloging spells deep below the palace unless she can make her magic bloom. If her deepest wish comes true, it would open up all sorts of possibilities. The whispers that she was a fluke of nature would hush. The King would stop stalking her. Her parents would no longer live under a cloud of shame. And, Adam could look at her as more than a friend. Despite the promises magic holds, Morana will quickly learn that the thing she wishes for most, could quickly be her undoing.

An Announcement to Start the Weekend

Last summer I published my 8th full-length novel, The End of Feeling. Shortly after its release I was contacted by an editor at Skyscape, a division of Amazon Publishing. (Who knew Amazon had a publishing house? I didn't!) They expressed interest in acquiring the rights. I was hesitant, preferring to self-publish over traditional publishing. But, after talking to some authors who've published with them, and after a phone conference with Vivian and Courtney, I was convinced they'd be a great option. I've kept it a bit on the quiet side because we decided to leave the book out there, available for purchase since I'd already released it, with a re-release date set for January 27, 2015.

Well, we're just a few days away from that, so I feel like it's a good time for the announcement, and, even better, a reveal of the redesigned cover! Add to that announcement another one: it will now also be available as an audiobook!!! Yay!!! (I promise you won't find the overuse of exclamation points in the book itself.) So, here it is, with the blurb and a purchasing link as well. If you continue to the bottom of the post, there's a link to a Goodreads giveaway being run by Skyscape where you can enter to win your own copy. They are offering 20 copies for the giveaway!

Haven Waiting: A New Release That Comes with a Party!

Hey, everyone, I'd like to announce the release of Haven Waiting by Tifani Clark. This is the sequel to Shadow of a Life, though honestly you don't necessarily need to read that one to read this - but you'll want to, just because it's a great book. And as great as it is, I think Haven Waiting is even better! Witches who are ghosts and soul savers? What more do you need?

You can read about it below, and be sure to stop by the Facebook Launch Party today from 6:00-7:30 p.m. MST. Lots of fun games and prizes to be had! You can find that here.



HAVEN WAITING by Tifani Clark
Soul Saver: Book Two
Available January 12, 2015

Fifteen-year-old Jamie Peters is a Soul Saver. She helps ghosts finish their business and move on. When a mysterious map comes into her possession, she knows a new adventure is waiting. With the help of her friends, Peter and Camille, she follows the map. Her friends hope to find treasure, but Jamie suspects there is more to the map than riches. She never imagined the map would lead her to Haven—and a book of spells.

Haven Mills was accused of practicing witchcraft during the Salem Witch Trials. Unlike the other women hung during the trials, Haven wasn’t as innocent as she claimed to be. In one moment of weakness and desperation, she did something sinister—something that has been bringing evil to the world for centuries.

Jamie promises to help Haven, but the reality of what that promise entails comes back to haunt her as she fights not only for Haven’s soul, but for her own as well.   

Pre-order your copy of HAVEN WAITING today at:

SHADOW OF A LIFE by Tifani Clark
Soul Saver: Book One


Jamie Peters plans to spend the summer before her junior year with her nose stuck in a book—not saving lost souls. Usually the girl that blends into the crowd, Jamie’s world is turned upside down when a mysterious ghost begins to follow her.
But Sophia isn’t just any ghost.
A hundred years earlier, Sophia’s disappearance sparked a national mystery that remained unsolved. Jamie knows the legends surrounding Sophia’s disappearance, but she never dreamed she would find out what really happened . . . or that her family might have had something to do with Sophia’s disappearance.
Determined to set Sophia free, Jamie blows the dust off her family’s past and unearths clues to discover what she must do to save Sophia’s soul. She enlists the help of childhood friend—and secret crush—Peter Ashby as she sets off on a dangerous quest to find a missing map. Spending the night in a graveyard, crawling through a dilapidated barn, and staring down the barrel of a gun aren’t enough to deter Jamie from helping Sophia. But can she find the answers she needs before another ghost gets revenge on her and Sophia?
