Book Buzz: The Appeal of Evil by Pembroke Sinclair

YA Paranormal Romance, The Appeal of Evil by Pembroke Sinclair is set to launch next year on January 14th and boy does it look hot or what?  Check out the book description below:
Katie wants to invest her heart and soul in love, but she may lose both to Hell.  

Katie, a senior in high school, is torn between loving the “good” guy, her childhood friend Wes who makes promises he doesn't keep and abandons her when she needs him the most, and the “bad” guy, the new kid at school Josh who is also a real demon from Hell. 

Katie wants someone who pays attention to her and puts her first, but what is she willing to give up to find him?

About the Author: 

Pembroke Sinclair is a literary jack of all trades, playing her hand at multiple genres. She has written an eclectic mix of fiction ranging from horror to sci-fi and even some westerns. Born in Rock Springs, Wyoming--the home of 56 nationalities, it is no wonder Pembroke ended up so creatively diverse. Her fascination with the notions of good and evil--demons and angels and how the lines blur have inspired her writing. Pembroke lives in Laramie, Wyoming with her husband, two spirited boys, a black lab named Ryder and a rescue kitty named Alia, who happens to be the sweetest, most adorable kitty in the world! She can not say no to dessert, orange soda or cinnamon. She loves rats and tatt’s and rock and roll and wants to be an alien queen when she grows up.

IWSG: Don't Ever Give Up!

It's time for Insecure Writers Support Group.  This monthly meme is brought to us by  Alex J. Cavanaugh and now has a new home.  If you haven't visited their new website, click here and check it out

I'll keep my post short. Like most writers, I've had way too much going on.  To give you an example, it's 11:30 at night here and right now I'm trying to write a compelling post.  *Smacks forehead*  That's just the way it goes, huh?  
Anyway, my insecurities this month--which seem to be a common theme for the year--are surrounding my novel and some setbacks I have had.  This is not necessarily a bad thing but it has caused some insecurity for me. That said, I haven't dwelt on that insecurity for too long.  In truth, finding time is my biggest challenge with my writing these days.  Do hurdles like this make a writer want to give up?  It used to, but I realized a long time ago that this whole writing process is a journey so I'm doing my best to enjoy the ride.
And no I haven't given up either.  To show you I haven't I thought I'd share this writers creed with you:

Have you seen this before?  It's perfect for the publishing industry, huh?  Can you guess which one's publishing and which one's me?  Can you relate?  What type of insecurities are you faced with this month?
