 I give you.  A giveaway, A interview, and  the synopsis !!!!       

                                                        Nicole Williams 
            Crash ,Clash, and Yep Crush!!!!!

Interview with Nicole Williams:

        First I would like to say thank you once again for taking the time out of your busy life to spend a little time with me. You have been a big help in my journey into the blogging life. I started all this just to say what books I liked and didn’t because I got tired of repeating myself I started a face book page which grew in a month to something I really didn’t expect. So after many PM's about a blog I decided to open one. I really am thankful you were so generous to help me.

When and why did you begin writing?
"I've always been a writer. For as long as I can remember. I wrote because I loved it and I'm still writing because I love it."

What was the hardest part of writing Crash and/or Clash?
"It's so up and down, hot and cold, fire and ice. It's difficult to write such intense stories about such intense people."

 How did you come up with the idea of Jude Ryder and his gray beanie cap?
"I wanted to write a "bad boy" but explore what made the boy go "bad" and Jude gave me the opportunity to do just that. The beanie cap came organically."

How was writing Crash/Clash different than writing the Eden series?
"It was only different in that it was edgier and not set in a paranormal world. Everything else, was very similar. I still wanted to tell a good story, write a great romance, and create memorable characters."

With out giving away to much is there something you can tell us about where Jude and Lucy will be heading?
"I can't say too much, but you can expect another hot, exciting, roller coaster of a ride for Jude and Lucy."

Did you ever think this trilogy (I can say that now) would become as popular as it did?
"No, I didn't. It was my first contemporary romance, so I wasn't sure how my reader base would like it given I'd only written paranormal. It took off right away and the rest is history. "

Do you have any advise for other inspiring writers?(like myself)
"Write and don't give up. It's a marathon, not a sprint!"

Last but not least: This is my favorite question to ask:
Is there a message you want your readers to take at the end that you didn't think a lot of people got? Oh wait I dont think I can ask that its not the end any more. LOL.

Okay than hummm?

If The crash series became a movie who would you want to see play Jude and Lucy?
"I get asked this a lot and it's too hard for me to say. I can't quite find the right actors or actresses. Who do you see playing Jude and Lucy?"
Well Nicole, Again I would like to say Thank You very much......And Good Luck with Crush I can't
 wait to read the next part of Jude and Lucy's Life.
For all who don't know.
Harper Collins has picked up the series and  will be rereleasing both CRASH and CLASH in paperback on December 18th
The third book is entitled CRUSH and will be coming soon to your e-readers and bookstores everywhere.
You can pre order Crash at:

Southpointe High is the last place Lucy wanted to wind up her senior year of school. Right up until she stumbles into Jude Ryder, a guy whose name has become its own verb, and synonymous with trouble. He's got a rap sheet that runs longer than a senior thesis, has had his name sighed, shouted, and cursed by more women than Lucy dares to ask, and lives at the local boys home where disturbed seems to be the status quo for the residents. Lucy had a stable at best, quirky at worst, upbringing. She lives for wearing the satin down on her ballet shoes, has her sights set on Juilliard, and has been careful to keep trouble out of her life. Up until now.

Jude's everything she knows she needs to stay away from if she wants to separate her past from her future. Staying away, she's about to find out, is the only thing she's incapable of.

For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love's about to become the thing that tears them apart.

The only easy thing about Jude and Lucy’s relationship is their love for one another. Everything else is hard.

Especially when it comes to reining in Jude’s trigger touch temper and Lucy’s increasing jealousy of Jude’s Spirit Sister on the cheer squad who’s attached herself to him in just about every way a girl could. Feeling the stress of trying to hang on to her quintessential bad boy while becoming the foremost dancer in her class, Lucy knows something’s going to break. She wants both. She needs both. But if she doesn’t make a choice, she risks losing everything.

For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love might be the thing that just isn’t enough.
