Heartbreakers Blog Tour Day 1 ~ Janet Gurtler & Shari Green

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Heartbreakers Blog Tour! Each day this week, I'll be featuring two authors (four on Saturday) and their answers to two romance/Valentine's Day related questions I came up with. There's also a great giveaway that you're going to want to enter.

Go to the main tour page to check out posts on the other participating blogs.☺

A Rita Award Finalist and Crystal Kite Award Finalist, Janet Gurtler's young adult books have been chosen for the JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD SELECTION and as BEST BOOKS FOR TEENS from the Canadian Children’s Book Center. Janet lives in Okotoks Alberta, Canada with her husband, son, and a chubby black Chihuahua named Bruce.

1. Describe the perfect Valentine's Day date for a couple in your latest or upcoming release.

In The Truth About Us, my couple would love to spend Valentines at a local beach, snuggled up for warmth under a blanket, sharing a take-out  pizza.

2.  What is your favorite part about writing romance in books?

It’s so fun for an old married lady like me to go back to those feelings, the excitement and joy of falling in love. Writing about them means reliving them.

The truth is that Jess knows she screwed up.

She's made mistakes, betrayed her best friend, and now she's paying for it. Her dad is making her spend the whole summer volunteering at the local soup kitchen.

The truth is she wishes she was the care-free party-girl everyone thinks she is.

She pretends it's all fine. That her "perfect" family is fine. But it's not. And no one notices the lie...until she meets Flynn. He's the only one who really sees her. The only one who listens.

The truth is that Jess is falling apart – and no one seems to care. 

But Flynn is the definition of "the wrong side of the tracks." When Jess's parents look at him they only see the differences-not how much they need each other. They don't get that the person who shouldn't fit in your world... might just be the one to make you feel like you belong.
Shari Green writes Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction and occasionally masquerades as a poet. When she’s not glued to her laptop, she can often be found wandering in a blissful daze on the beach near her home on Vancouver Island, BC. Visit her online at

1. Describe the perfect Valentine's Day date for a couple in your latest or upcoming release.

Visiting an art gallery, followed by “sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g” (literally--they have a thing for trees…and kissing)

2.  What is your favorite part about writing romance in books?

Trying to capture the fluttery, confusing feelings of the pre-romance stage. Not he loves me, he loves me not, but I love him, wait that’s crazy, who is he? why do I feel like throwing up?!

Walking in the footsteps of a dead girl isn’t easy.

After her social life flatlines, seventeen-year-old Anna Richards wants nothing more than to lie low at her new school. But it seems Anna looks an awful lot like Chelsea, the sweet and popular girl who recently died, and Anna finds herself stepping into the void created by Chelsea’s absence.

Anna is determined to make the awkward situation work in her favor, because Chelsea didn’t just leave a spot open with the in-crowd; she also left a gorgeous—and now available—boyfriend. But it turns out that following Chelsea might be a lot more complicated than Anna expected.

The tour wide giveaway is for 1 Free Kindle +1 $20 Amazon gift card to one lucky winner. Good luck!
