Penelope Landlow has grown up with the knowledge that almost anything can be bought or sold—including body parts. She’s the daughter of one of the three crime families that control the black market for organ transplants.
Penelope’s surrounded by all the suffocating privilege and protection her family can provide, but they can’t protect her from the autoimmune disorder that causes her to bruise so easily.
And in her family’s line of work no one can be safe forever.
All Penelope has ever wanted is freedom and independence. But when she’s caught in the crossfire as rival families scramble for prominence, she learns that her wishes come with casualties, that betrayal hurts worse than bruises, that love is a risk worth taking . . . and maybe she’s not as fragile as everyone thinks.
I have four year old twins (The Schmidtlets), so the last time I had a ‘typical’ day was slightly more than four years ago. This actually suits me quite well, because while I need structure and organization in my day, I also thrive with spontaneity and become really creatively depleted in monotonous situations. Usually what this means is I plan a day… and then something completely different takes place. That being said – here’s my ~*today*~.
6 a.m. – St.Matt (the husband) wakes me up. He’s already made my coffee—told you he’s a saint. I stumble over to the desk in our bedroom and try and eek out some work before The Schmidtlets wake up. Today I spend this time working on blog tour posts and interviews.
Tiffany Schmidt lives in Pennsylvania with her saintly husband, impish twin boys, and a pair of mischievous puggles. She’s not at all superstitious… at least that’s what she tells herself every Friday the thirteenth. SEND ME A SIGN is her first novel. BRIGHT BEFORE SUNRISE will follow in Winter, 2014. The ONCE UPON A CRIME FAMILY series begins with HOLD ME LIKE A BREATH in 2015.
