A Random Assortment of Fun

Hey Everyone!

A bunch of book-related awesomeness has been brought to my attention over the past week, so I just wanted to do a quick post to put said awesomeness on your radar. I know, I know. I'm a giver through and through ;-)

First up: ENTICE ME DAY



Entice Me Day is going to be an amazing day for both fans of the Violet Eden series as well as those who are new to it, with all sorts of amazing giveaways and a live chat with author Jessica Shirvington. From Sourcebooks:

During the day, @EmbraceSeries and Facebook.com/embracetheseries will be posting cool character quotes, informing readers about the character videos, directing people to quote quizzes, announcing a new chapter release and hosting a giveaway.

ENTICE ME DAY Sweepstakes: We are offering one lucky grand prize winner the chance to win a NOOK Color!  We’re uploading this device with the e-books for EMBRACE, ENTICE, and early chapters from the next book in the series, EMBLAZE.  PLUS, we are including a “YA Starter Library” with a selection of our other cool YA titles, for a total of about 10 books.  The Sweepstakes entries will begin midnight on September 7th and end midnight on September 15th. 

If that weren't exciting enough, the entire week leading up to Entice Me Day will be filled with special character profiles each day, giving you behind the scenes info on everyone involved in this world. I'm thrilled to announce that I will be hosting bad boy Phoenix here on Supernatural Snark, so be sure and check in on the 12th for all the juicy scoop on this delicious baddie!

A full schedule for the week as well as all the details for Entice Me Day can be found here. I hope you guys are as excited for this as I am!

BREATHE


Thanks to the fabulous people over at HarperTeen I have a very cool video in which author Sarah Corssan discusses her writing process to share with you! I'm very excited about the world of Breathe, how cool does it sound?

In a barren land, a shimmering glass dome houses the survivors of the Switch, the period when oxygen levels plunged and the green world withered.

A state lottery meant a lucky few won safety, while the rest suffocated in the thin air. And now Alina, Quinn, and Bea—an unlikely trio, each with their own agendas, their own longings and fears—walk straight into the heart of danger. With two days’ worth of oxygen in their tanks, they leave the dome.

    Sarah's video was very interesting. I find the concept behind Breathe very frightening but very original.
