Moving Towards A Cure: Miles For Hope

On Friday the 20th, my family, friends and I took off to Clearwater for the Miles for Hope run/walk for Brain Cancer. If you follow this blog, you know that my dad has brain cancer and we have had a pretty long and hard 4 years. Over the summer we found out that the cancer was back in form of 2 tumors. In August he went through cyberknife (still waiting to find out if it worked or not). Instead of sitting on our arses I decided I wanted to do something which led to this 5k.


While taking a tour of the hotel we found this sucker in the pool. Gross!

Leap of Faith by Jamie Blair Book Blitz

Leap of Faith by Jamie Blair
Published by: Simon & Schuster BfYR
Publication date: September 3rd 2013
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult

Can true love be built on lies? A teen on the run seeks relief and redemption in this gripping, romantic read.

Leah Kurtz has finally found a place to call home, a town where she and baby Addy can live in peace, far from the drug-infested place she grew up. Chris is one of the best parts of her new life, the only person who’s ever made her feel safe. And now that she’s found him, there’s no way she can tell the truth:

Her real name is Faith, not Leah. She’s seventeen, not nineteen. And the baby isn’t hers—Faith kidnapped her.

Faith’s history catches up with her when a cop starts asking questions and Chris’s aunt spots her picture in the newspaper. She knows it’s time to run again, but if Faith leaves, she’ll lose Chris. If Chris is in love with a lie, though, did Faith ever really have him in the first place?


Rafflecopter giveaway

Prizes (open US only):
10 winners:
--5 prize packages of a signed hardback, a t-shirt and a guitar pick, 
--5 e-books with an autographed Leap of Faith notecard, a guitar pick and stickers

Jamie Blair spent most of her teen years choreographing moves for her dance team routines, kissing boys on the couch after her mom went to bed, and pondering the mood enhancement qualities of Lemon Heads when consumed with Diet Coke. Writing under Kelli Maine, she’s the USA Today bestselling author of Taken. Leap of Faith is her debut New Adult novel.
