120 books up for grabs during YASH!

I'm so excited to be taking part in the fall YA Scavenger Hunt, October 4th - 9th!

I even get to be on the Blue Team (blue just happens to be my favorite color). Check out the 20 fantastic books being given away by the 20 generous authors on my team:

And there are 5 other teams giving away 20 books, too. So that's 120 authors and 120 books up for grabs! If you'd like to check out what the other teams have to offer, follow this link.

FYI, I'll also be having my own INTL giveaway alongside the hunt, with a second RoseBlood arc up for grabs + one or two Phantom-themed goodies, so I hope to see you all back here on October 4th!

Glowing Kirkus Review For RoseBlood!

Okay, anyone who reads this blog knows I don't ever post reviews, but the fact that I received such a positive review from Kirkus, who weren't too fond of any of my Splintered books, deserves to be recorded here for posterity. 

Here's the review (click on image to enlarge):

I'm so happy my story resonated with them! If you'd like to see the review on the Kirkus website, follow this link

Also, heads up, the RoseBlood virtual tour is coming in October, with lots of sneak peeks, reveals, and giveaways. Stay tuned for deets!

My Japanese author copies of Splintered arrived today and they’re gorgeous little 4X6 mini books! The cover art is a vibrant, fun, manga design that makes me want a comic series even more than I already did. ;)

Coolest of all, they're in complementary sets. I was told that they split the story in half and made it into two books. 

There are enough of these little beauties to give away a few sets down the road. But for now, I'm holding them hostage to cuddle with for a while. <3

My personal RoseBlood ARCs are going out next week!

Today I’m personalizing my RoseBlood ARC packs with Phantastical cards and musical note necklace/bookmarks so they'll be ready to mail next week. Can’t wait to send these beauties off to their new owners! 💕

Please note: All of my author copy arcs are already spoken for and my publisher is not taking any more requests at this time. My publicist will be mailing review copies to her chosen bloggers sometime in September. 

Don't worry if you haven't received an email from her. It doesn't necessarily mean you're not getting one. She's not letting anyone know ahead of time. She's simply mailing them off, so those readers will get a happy surprise!

The Preciousssss - part two...

Yesterday, in part one of this post, I shared my author copy for The Architect of Song. Today, I wanted to showcase my beautiful RoseBlood arcs, and share a sneak peek into how the hardback's interior will be different. 

I'm so thrilled with the dramatic effect of the vivid covers juxtaposed against the stark B&W interior! And the thorny, brambly vines? Eerie perfection. Check it out:

Now, should you be one of the lucky recipients who ends up with an arc, be sure to get yourself a hardback, too. Because not only is there colored ink in the HB, but there's also a completely different design for the end papers. Here's an example:

So stunning! <3 Of course, the color might not be exactly this shade (computer monitors may vary), but it's close.

I'm getting so excited to send off the arcs! Any bloggers who put their bid in for one via my publisher should be getting theirs within the next few weeks (if you were chosen). My publicist informed me that she didn't send anyone emails if they were going to get one, she's simply going to put them in the mail. So be watching your mailbox to find out if you scored one! And as for the past winners of my arc giveaways, I'll be sending those off sometime within the next few weeks, too. 

One last thing, if anyone would like to plaster this little animated beauty on your blog's sidebar, or share it via twitter, FB, tumblr, pinterest, etc... to get the word out about RoseBlood, I'd appreciate it so much! Just follow this link for HTML or other posting options. 

Have a great weekend, and I'll see you again soon with more bookish updates!
