I'm posting this here for my friend, the author. She was having difficulty getting logged on...
Fourteen-year-old Elisabeth Grace is so stricken with the curse of beauty that she attracts everyone she meets. Her family calls it, ‘sangre dulce’, or sweet blood. But is it possible her curse is actually a gift? In the story she realizes the greater reason for it; her sweet blood is not limited to this realm.
During a summer spent at a historic inn near Williamsburg, Va., she discovers that she is a clairvoyant. She develops a powerful bond with an older boy, Carter, who has been dead for over two hundred years. He is instantly stricken with her but she is reluctant. It takes her time, distance, and emotionally charged predicaments for her to accept her true feelings for him.
At her tender age, denial is bliss. The fact that Carter isn’t the only ghost attracted to her is something Elisabeth tries to ignore. But can she?
Teenage angst is alive and well in historic Virginia! The fact that it is between a girl and a ghost is barely an afterthought.

As Charlotte steps through the gate, she has a strong feeling that nothing will ever be the same again.
Moving back to South Carolina after three years away, Charlotte knows she’s going to have to face people from her past and adjust to a new high school, but she’s completely unprepared for what else waits for her in Charleston.
Drawn through an old garden gate, Charlotte discovers a hidden world where she meets Calvin, a boy to whom she is inexplicably attracted. As Charlotte is pulled deeper into this hidden world, it’s up to her older brother Kevin to rescue her. No matter how hard Kevin tries, the rescue depends upon Charlotte fighting her intense feelings for Calvin while mastering a set of abilities that she has only just discovered she possesses.

At the end of December 2011, I finished publishing my Waldgrave series. They are full-length YA novels, and the first one in the series is currently available on the Nook for $0.99. I would be forever grateful if anyone were to give me a read, and let me know what you thought. (contact me on Google+, Facebook, Twitter, or via my blog http://addisynltyler.blogspot.com/, I am always happy to meet a new friend).

The Weeping Empress was not initially written as a YA novel, but seems to be doing well with the YA crowd. It is available on Nook for $0.99.
Chiyo Alglaeca was happy in her life. That is, until it was all taken away. Forced into notoriety, stalked by a mysterious cult, hunted by the emperor, and facing betrayal at every turn she clings to the only safety she can find: two enigmatic men and the sharp bringer of death, Salvation. The Weeping Empress explores the devastating effects of loss, the hunt for redemption, and the price of destiny. It questions the true meaning of evil and asks what monster is not also an innocent?
