Instagramming My Book: Artificial Sweethearts

I’ve been doing self-imposed Instagram challenge for the month of July in support of my new novel, Artificial Sweethearts, which comes out on Monday, July 10. It’s the second book in the North Pole, Minnesota YA romance series. That’s a mouthful.

Here’s the back cover copy:

It’s not chemistry between Tinka Foster and Sam Anderson that made them agree to fake date. With her parents trying to set her up with an annoying pro-track golf student, and intentionally single Sam’s family pressuring him to bring a date to his brother’s wedding, they could both use a drama-free summer.

So it’s not his muscular arms and quick wit that makes Tinka suggest they tell everyone they’re both taken. Definitely not. And it’s not butterflies that makes a kiss for appearances during the lake party go on way too long—so long that Sam wishes it were real.

But Tinka keeps people at arm’s length—she’s always been second best, even to her parents. And her relationship-for-show could crush everything when she realizes she’s done with fake, pretend, and second-best.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains bikinis at the lake, a lot of making out in dark theaters, and a meet-cute you’ll read twice.

I decided to come up with an Instagram challenge as a way to discipline myself as an Instagrammer, but also as a way to tell you all about the novel. I chose prompts that come right form the book’s pages, because I’m a tease; but because I’m also a giver, I’m going to explain why I picked the prompts I picked. Here are the posts from the first week.


I wrote a book! It’s YA novel, THE SOUND OF US. You can find the details right here! Kirkus calls it “a winning story about a teenage voice student that hits all the right notes.”

I also wrote another book, Any Boy but You, (You’ve Got Mail in the Pokemon Go era). You can buy it here.
