Midwinter’s Eve #Giveaway Hop #YA

This contest has ended. The winner will be announced tomorrow (1/5).

Stay tuned!

Hi everyone!

I’m happy to once again be participating in the Midwinter’s Eve Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am A Reader Not A Writer and Book Hounds. 🙂

 

2013-Midwinters-Eve-Hop

*********

For the Hop this year, a few titles are up for grabs, all in the fantasy genre, all YA. There will be ONE winner, just choose the book you want. 😉

First option:

CRUX

by Julie Reece

YA Urban Fantasy

13She should have run. Now, she’ll have to fight.

Eighteen year old Birdie may be homeless, but she’s surviving, that is until a mysterious guy throws money in the air like a crazy game show host and she grabs some with the idea she’ll be able to buy dinner that night.

In that singular moment, unassuming Birdie becomes the girl in everyone’s viewfinder. Thugs want to kill her. Money-guy wants to recruit her. The very hot, very rich and very out of her league Grey Mathews wants to save her.

Birdie, though, wants nothing to do with any of them until she realizes fate didn’t bring them all together.

Her heritage did.

Now, with only twenty-one days left, she’s got to decide whether to follow in the footsteps of those before her or risk her life for people she’s only just met.

Next option:

REAPER

by L.S. Murphy

YA urban fantasy

19There’s no way sixteen year old Quincy Amarante will become the fifth grim reaper. None. Not over her shiny blue Mustang. Her Jimmy Choos. Or her dead body.

She’s supposed to enjoy her sophomore year, not learn about some freaky future Destiny says she has no choice but to fulfill.

It doesn’t take long for Quincy to realize the only way out of the game is to play along especially since Death can find her anyway, anywhere, anytime. And does.

Like when she’s reassuring her friends she wants nothing to do with former best friend Ben Moorland, who’s returned from god-knows-where, and fails. Miserably.

Instead of maintaining her coveted popularity status, Quincy’s goes down like the Titanic.

Maybe … just maybe … that’s okay.

It seems, perhaps, becoming a grim reaper isn’t just about the dead but more about a much needed shift in Quincy’s priorities—from who she thinks she wants to be to who she really is.

And last option:

TIED (Fire Born #1)

by Laney McMann

YA Urban Fantasy

perf5.250x8.000.inddNormal people don’t believe their nightmares stalk them. They don’t fall in love with boys who don’t exist, either.

Seventeen-year-old Layla Labelle, though, is far from normal. Her delusions walk the earth. Her hallucinations hunt her, and her skin heats to a burn every time her anger flares.

Or is that all in her head?

Layla doesn’t know what to believe any more because if none of that’s true, Max MacLarnon must be an illusion, and her heart must still be broken.

No matter how much she wants to believe Max is real, doing so would mean everything else is, too. How, then, is that possible?

The answers lie in an age-old legend the supernatural aren’t prepared to reveal, and with a curse that could tear Layla and Max apart forever—if it doesn’t kill them both first.

In TIED, book one in the Fire Born trilogy, learning the truth will mean fighting an arsenal of demons, and being with Max will put Layla on a path toward her own destruction.

Just how far will Layla go to protect the one she loves?

The answer may never be far enough … away.

In addition, I’m giving away a $10 Amazon gift card to the same winner.

Author Spotlight ~ Secret of the Souls by Terri Rochenski

Today on the blog, I’m happy to be hosting fellow author, Terri Rochenski, and touting the sequel to her fantasy duology,

Secret of the Souls

(Pool of Souls #2)

 

36dac-secretofthesouls-cover-final500Author:  Terri Rochenski

Publisher:  J. Taylor Publishing

Release Date:  October 6, 2014

Keywords:  Adult Fantasy

Blurb:

Thrust out of their homes by a human High Priest on a vengeful mission, the Natives of Derlund no longer have a place to call their own. One escaped capture, however, and now she, Hyla, is the only one who can save her people.

For, Hyla, though, saving her nation isn’t her ultimate goal—returning to the Pool of Souls is. Becoming its Guardian and preserving their faith is her heart’s desire. The perils of her current journey, though, could leave her unable to fulfill that dream.

To find her way back to the Pool, Hyla must live among dangerous, powerful humans willing to defend the Natives, and must submit herself—her Talents—to them. While her protection is paramount, plots to end Hyla’s life will push her to her physical and emotional limits.

On the edge of sanity, her courage tested, and convictions nearly broken, Hyla’s final test of loyalty to her faith comes with the death of one she could have loved.

I asked Terri to share her top 10 fantasy movies. Here goes:

  1. LotR – is there any other??

  2. The NeverEnding Story – FAV movie as a kid. Couldn’t get enough of it. I used to dream Falkor would come pick me up & take me to meet Atreyu. Le sigh.

  3. Stargate – while this might fall more on the Sci-Fi side, it’s a must-see for all adventurous dreamers.

  4. The Hobbit – duh.

  5. I’m going to cheat here and say Game of Thrones, cuz it’s MY list and I can!

  6. Princess Bride. “As you wish.”

  7. Shrek – because that donkey CRACKS ME UP!

  8. FROZEN!!! Love me some Olaf. Besides, I have two little girls. What did you expect?!?

  9. The Polar Express. The hubs would be sad if I didn’t add this one. It’s a Christmas must-see. Every. Year.

  10. Star Wars – all 6 movies. Again, it’s more sci-fi, but hey…I grew up BEING Princess Leia.

***** For the record, and being a HUGE fantasy fan myself, I concur with Terri. There is no other that could ever take the number one spot. LOTR reigns supreme. 😉

**********

And to celebrate the launch, Eye of the Soul (book #1) is on sale!

*********************

40870-rocheski2bterri2b-2bhead2bshot2b1Bio:

Terri started writing stories in the 8th grade, when a little gnome whispered in her brain. Gundi’s Great Adventure never hit the best seller list, but it started a long love affair with storytelling.

Today she enjoys an escape to Middle Earth during the rare ‘me’ moments her three young children allow. When not playing toys, picking them back up, or kissing boo-boos, she can be found sprawled on the couch with a book or pencil in hand, and toothpicks propping her eyelids open.

September Is For Sequels Blog Hop #Giveaway #YA

It’s been forever since I participated in a blog hop it seems, but September for Sequels is the perfect place for me to hop back in.

SeptemberSequels-Giveaway-1024x879

What’s up for grabs on my end of things?

As this is a sequels hop, I’m offering up a e-book copy of not yet released, TORN, the second book in the Fire Born Novels trilogy which launches on September 8th. And since it is the second, I’m also going to giveaway a e-book copy of the first book in the trilogy, TIED.

 

perf5.250x8.000.indd

 

Target Audience: Young Adult

Key Words: Urban Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Mystery, Mythology

Publisher: J Taylor Publishing

BLURB:

Seventeen-year-old Layla Labelle, though, is far from normal. Her delusions walk the earth. Her hallucinations hunt her, and her skin heats to a burn every time her anger flares.

AND … the sequel:

     September 8, 2014

September 8, 2014

BLURB:

 

Find Max.

That’s all Layla cares about. Not healing from the Fomore attack. Not finding answers to how she survived a fall that nearly killed her. Nothing will stop her. She will find him. She’ll even pair up with an overbearing Fallen Angel who’s hell bent on making everything harder than it needs to be if she has to.

Protect Layla.

For Max, nothing else matters. Not the bruises covering his body. Not the pain radiating from his broken bones. Not even his hands tied behind his back. He will find a way to save Layla, and the Fomore will pay if they’ve hurt her.

Every. Single. One of them.

In the second installment of The Fire Born trilogy, a new breed of villain looms—one Layla and Max will never suspect, and this killer has nothing to lose. Better yet, with Max and Layla’s deaths, victory is in the grip of the enemy.

Will Max and Layla find each other in time, or is it already too late for them both?

Releasing September 8, 2014

September is for Sequels will run from September 2nd – September 10 at midnight.

To make the entries super simple, I’m only asking for you to leave a comment in the comment form below, including your email, so I can contact the winner. Random.org will choose one winner at contests end, on September 10 at midnight. (The giveaway is International)
