Good morning everybody! We're kicking off a blog tour and contest to celebrate CAYMAN SUMMER and reminisce together about Michael and Leesie's journey. The first stop is an interview with Michael, Leesie and me at Bee's beautiful blog, DREAMCATCHER's LAIR. Go check it out. It's really fun. And you'll get to read Michael's very first words on paper--the free write that became TAKEN BY STORM! 

Here's your formal invitation to M+L FOREVER Tour and Contest. The blog tour calendar is still a work in progress--like everything in my writing life right now--so if you'd like to join, just let me know. We'll be debuting new trailers this week, and I'll be posting background pictures from Michael and Leesie's journey from their first conversation to CAYMAN SUMMER's epilogue. All your questions and comments are always welcome!

The M+L Forever Contest

The first 30 people to enter will receive an organza drawstring bag full of Michael and Leesie M&Ms. Coolest swag ever, right?
Aren't they cute? These were the favors at my son's recent wedding, and I decided I had to get them for Michael and Leesie, too. Colors will be different. I'll post a picture of the actual M&Ms with Michael and Leesie's faces on them as soon as I get them. 

I'll also be giving away 3 complete sets of TAKEN BY STORM, UNBROKEN CONNECTION, and CAYMAN SUMMER!

One signed first edition hardcover of TAKEN BY STORM


All you have to do to enter is make a comment below. If you FaceBook, tweet, blog, Goodreads comment, tell a friend or a bookclub, about the contest, you will get an extra entry for each place you promote the contest. Bloggers who host me on their blogs as part of the tour will receive 5 extra entries. More opportunities for extra entries will arise over the course of the tour. 


And, yes, as always, the contest is open to my wonderful international readers. 


  1. EU QUERO!
    Parabéns Angela, estou louco para ler seus livro!

  2. I would love copies of books! I will facebook and goodreads. I have a blog but haven't blogged in months and months. I am glad things are going well for you. Susan G. Haws at I keep trying to post a comment but it is not taking my google id.

  3. This is an amazing contest and the idea for the M&Ms is wonderful. I will be checking out the blog tour! Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Okay, I'm going to FB this as soon as I comment here. Funny thing--I finished TBS three days ago, and have already ordered the other two on my Kindle, and now halfway through Unbroken Connection. Kind of addicted now. Doh! I'd be happy to jump in on the blogger reviewer list, since I'd planned to mention TBS anyway. Sign me up.

  5. Exciting and congrats! I'll FB and tweet about it. I'm still figuring out goodreads, but will definitely mark it as to read (I've gotten that far on understanding it). Thanks!

  41. Hey Kristy, It's great to hear from you. Congrats on your blog. I'd love to visit. All that means is you email me questions, I send back the answers, and you post them on your blog. I'm running the blog tour through July, so if you want to work out a date, I can add you to that.

    Drop me an email, okay? It's angelamorrison at mac dot com


  42. I've heard such fabu things about this series, what a fantastic giveaway! Love the idea of the M&M's!

  43. Cayman summer contest international! I'm from Venezuela!
    Thanks so much fot the giveaway Angela!
    best wishes with your book!

    que genial lo has hecho internacional, yo soy de Venezuela
    gracias por el concurso Angela, la verdad les tengo ganas a tus libros desde hace rato

  44. Welcome everyone! I'm thrilled you stopped by. I hope you all win. I'd send everyone books if I could.

  45. I just finished reading TBS (this was my 3rd time..ever since I got it from the library I've been addicted to it), and boy are those poems good or what? You truly are an amazing author. It's too bad my library doesn't have Unbroken connections (can't afford it myself). I was thrilled when I found the epilogue for SMTS. That was very inspiring and just the right fit.

    Sign me up!!!!!

  46. Now, dear, dear Anonymous. I hope you win UNBROKEN CONNECTION, but a fan with your dedication might not want to wait. It's only $2.99 to download it from Amazon. And you don't need a Kindle. The Kindle store has free apps for your computer, phone, iPod, etc. And then you can come right back here and read CAYMAN SUMMER, too. Aren't you dying to find out what happens next?

  47. Yes, I am dying to find out what happens in Unbroken Connection...Thanks, I will definitely download it!

  48. great giveaway Angela!!!
