Betrayal Blog tour and a Giveaway!



Hey y’all today I’m a part of the Betrayal blog tour hosted by Jean Book Nerd! Gregg has a guest post about becoming a writer so check it out and make sure to enter the giveaway below!


In this action-packed thriller sequel to Envy, foreign exchange student Olivia Grant is stabbed to death after a party--and the prime suspect is her best friend. As twins Hayley and Taylor Ryan get pulled into the aftermath of this Amanda Knox-like crime, they realize nothing is what it seems. Could it be betrayal of the ultimate kind? Betrayal features real-life crime-solving techniques, heart-stopping suspense, plenty of red herrings, hard-hitting ethical questions, and information about the Amanda Knox case that inspired the novel. As the crime unravels, so does the twins' past…and they must face off against a family member who may unexpectedly have carried out the worst betrayal of all.


Was there a defining moment during your youth when you realized you wanted to be a writer?

I like to tell this story because it is so meaningful to me. When I was 12 we visited a zoo in the Midwest. It was the world?s worst zoo. The animals were in cramped cages that looked no better than the worst dog kennel. When we returned to the Seattle area after our vacation, I wrote a letter to the editor, saying just what I thought about the zoo. A strange thing happened. The people of the town rallied around me, the letter I wrote, and they collected money ? a lot of money ? to fix the zoo. I knew then that the power of words. I was hooked. I wanted to be a writer so that I could reach other people. It could be to educate or entertain. Just the idea that the written word can bring us together. I feel the same way today.

About Gregg
 Seattle native who lives in Washington State, Gregg has seen the darker side of the Pacific Northwest and knows a little more about the area than your average guy. “There is something dark and beautiful about the Pacific Northwest," he says. “We seem to have an overabundance of serial killers out here–so many, in fact, sometimes I wonder if they have a secret convention in Washington.”

A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author with 13 books and sales of over one-million copies to his credit, Gregg made his young-adult fiction debut with Envy. The follow-up, Betrayal, will be published in September 2012.
