Those who are regular readers of this blog know that I'm a big advocate for promotion and marketing. When I opened my blog up for my summer Hijack! campaign I encouraged guests to come on and promote themselves and their work. That's what my guest on this post is here to do.
Meet Bethany Lopez
First I would like to say Thank You to Mr. Arlee Bird for allowing me to shamelessly promote myself on his blog today. My name is Bethany Lopez, and I write Young Adult and New Adult books.
I first joined the scene in June of 2011 with the release of my first YA book, Ta Ta for Now!, which is book one in the Stories About Melissa Series. I currently have the first three books in the series available and have begun writing the fourth. The series begins with Melissa beginning high school, and will follow her growth through those pivotal four years. There will be eight books in all by the time she graduates.
Since then I have tried expanding my craft and have completed an Upper YA Contemporary Fantasy,Nissa: a contemporary fairy tale, and book one in a Contemporary New Adult Trilogy, Make it Last.
I am really enjoying trying different genres and pushing myself out of my comfort zone. I look forward to meeting even more members of the reading and writing communities!
Bethany Lopez was born in Detroit, Michigan, and grew up in Michigan and San Antonio, Texas. She went to High School at Dearborn High, in Dearborn, Michigan, which is where she has set her Young Adult novel. She is married and has a blended family with five children. She is currently serving in the United States Air Force as a Recruiter in Los Angeles, California. She has always loved to read and write and has seen her dream realized by independently publishing her contemporary Young Adult series, Stories About Melissa. Ta Ta for Now!, xoxoxo, and Ciao are available now. Bethany is currently working on a Contemporary Fantasy YA and a Contemporary New Adult Trilogy.

Hijack This Blog! will soon be coming to an end and things will be coming back to normal if there is any sort of normal on this blog. I will be here with a post of my own this Friday. I've got something I've really gotten fired up to say and I'm gonna say it.
Next week I'll have visits from my A to Z co-hosts Stephen Tremp (September 24) and Alex Cavanaugh (September 26). You won't want to miss those. Then next Friday I'll be back with a look at some changes that will be in store for Tossing It Out. I'll definitely be hoping for some feedback on that one.
And just because the Hijack! campaign has ended doesn't mean guest posts will be ending on my blog. In fact I've already got more in store for October and November. You can add yours as well if you have something you'd like to present to the readers of this blog. Let me know your ideas and if you've got something good, I'll set you up. I need someone else to help me juggle the words sometimes because my arms get tired.
