YAmazing Race with MGnificent prizes


Welcome to my stop on the YAmazing Race with MGnificent prizes, a crazy whirlwind blog hop featuring over 50 debut authors and prize packs featuring ARCs, gift certificates, swag, and more! If you haven’t yet been to the Apocalypsies website, please click here to start from the beginning and read the complete rules.


Now on to the race! Make sure to read the blurb carefully, you’ll need to know it in order to answer the quiz!  🙂

RENEGADE by J.A. Souders

Since the age of three, sixteen-year-old Evelyn Winters has trained to be Daughter of the People in the underwater utopia known as Elysium.  Selected from hundreds of children for her ideal genes, all her life she’s believed that everything is perfect.  Her world. Her people. The law. 

But when Gavin Hunter, a Surface Dweller, accidentally stumbles into Elysium’s secluded little world, Evelyn comes to a startling realization: Everything she knows is a lie.

Her memories have been altered.

Her mind and body aren’t under her own control.

And the person she knows as Mother is a monster.

Together with Gavin she plans her escape, only to learn that her own mind is a ticking time bomb…and Mother has one last secret that will destroy them all.

I haz a cover!


Yes, you saw that right. I have a cover and it is GORGEOUS!  I love it with every beat of my heart. But no, I’m not going to share it yet. 🙁  And I know I’m teasing you a little with this post, but how else am I going to get the word out, right?  LOL.

Anyway, I’ve been lucky enough to have the help of some absolutely fantastic blogs and I’ll be working with them to do a scavenger hunt puzzle for the reveal. In exactly one week, starting on Friday, January 20th a group of blogs will be posting a puzzle piece of the cover along with a word from the tagline.  Then on Monday, January 23rd, a few other blogs will be posting the ENTIRE cover and hosting a contest to win an ARC of RENEGADE (when available) and a YA book of their choice from the book depository. (Might I recommend one of the fabulous apocalypsies that are already out–or I can even pre-order the one you’re most looking forward to.)

More details will be available on the blogs on Friday January 20th. 

And, so you can mark it on your calenders, this will be the scavenger hunt schedule (All times EST):

7 AM: Woven Myst
9 AM: Writer’s Ally
10 am: The Oasis 
11 am: Fire and Ice
1 pm: Confessions of a Bookaholic
3 pm: Jessie Harrell-The Daily Harrell 

For the final cover, on that following Monday (1/23) visit one or all of the following blogs:

Reading Teen 
Books Complete Me
Mundie Moms
Simple Love of Reading
Stuck in Books 

A special thanks to ALL of the blogs who are helping me share the awesomeness of my cover and a HUGE thanks to the art department at Tor for giving me the perfect cover.

Young Adult Fantasy and Faeries Giveaway Hop


Happy New Year, Everyone!  I hope you all had a marvelous holiday no matter what you do or do not celebrate and that you have a marvelous new year.

This year will be really exciting for me, and I thought I’d pass along some of that excitement by participating in the Young Adult Faeries and Fantasy Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am a Reader, Not A Writer and vvb32reads.

Since this giveaway is all about the faeries and fantasies I didn’t want to giveaway a book people already have, so I thought why not let y’all pick? 

All you have to do is enter through the rafflecopter widget below. ( I’m trying this out for the first time, so I’d love if you’d give me your opinions on it.  So far it’s really easy to set-up and I like it, but I want your opinion as well. )  Then when the hop is over, I’ll announce the winner and they’ll have 48-hours to respond to me with their book of choice. The winner will only receive ONE (1) book. (Preferably from the list, but if you know of a fantasy or faerie book that’s not on the list, I’ll be happy to see about getting that one to you instead.)

Winners will be chosen at random using the rafflecopter widget (I think they use random.org) and will be announced on this post and it’s own separate post sometime on January 12, 2012.

I’ll be using the book depository to purchase said book, so the contest is open internationally as long as they ship to your country.

As always the rules are simple. You must be a blog follower, and there are two other optional entries.  Following me on twitter. And tweeting a message about the contest. ( It should be simple because you can do all that from the rafflecopter widget.  :))

Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

List of available books (choose 1 book from the below list. For ease of time and  space I have listed series’, but I’m only offering 1 book, not the entire series.)
