In which my characters take over my blog to share big news!

Leah: Hello everyone! Kyra's hiding today, so Freya and I are here to share some news with you!
Freya: Yes, it's true, Kyra had her first set of author photos taken yesterday and she is already freaked out about seeing her face everywhere, so she's letting us take over while she gets used to it!
Now she's had her photos taken, she is ready to show off her shiny new Goodreads Author page! If you'd like to add Game On to your reading list, or leave a review if you've already read it, that would be fab!
Although the blog tour for Game On doesn't start until August 6th, the book is OUT NOW! There are a few reasons for this. Firstly, the buy links needed to be ready for the tour, secondly, we were bugging the hell out of Kyra to get this book out already, and finally, she was too excited to wait for much longer! 
You can read our story by following these links:



and that's not all for today! *casts Freya a pouty look*
Leah, don't look at me that way, you agreed!
Don't listen to her, I was forced!
You were not! 
Well, whatever. For those of you who have already read Game On, you'll know that I have quite a thing for tacky souvenirs. I collect them from every place I travel to, but Freya thinks I have too many.
WAY too many. 
 *ignores Freya* So, she thinks it's time I gave some away. Plus, I'm generous that way! So, I have put together a small collection of tacky souvenirs from the UK and Kyra will send them to one lucky winner! All you have to do to enter is follow the Rafflecopter instructions at the bottom of the page! 
Dorky as she is, some of Leah's souvenirs are pretty funny. I think you'll like them.
*laughing* Stop telling people I'm a dork! 
Sorry, sorry. She's not a dork, just ... weird about souvenirs!
Okay, enough out of you, friend, let's get out of here before Kyra decides we aren't allowed here ever again!
*giggles* Okay, we have to go to work anyway! Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
Yes, hope the sun shines wherever you are!

    1. oh and I should add...if you can get it onto Book Depository, I prefer to buy from there as it's way cheaper for us Aussies than Amazon (which has exorbitant postage costs).
