Let's move on to the exciting part, okay?
I'm very excited to be hosting:



Lissa Price
Lissa Price’s debut novel STARTERS is an international bestseller published in over thirty countries. Dean Koontz called this YA futuristic thriller “a smart, swift, inventive, altogether gripping story.” STARTERS appeared on many best of lists and won top awards in the Netherlands, Germany and France. Kirkus called the sequel, ENDERS, “delightfully disturbing.” Lissa lives in Southern Calif with deer and coyotes for neighbors.
If you want to find out more about Lissa and her books, check out her website!

The book she's promoting is ENDERS!

The thrilling end to the questions raised in Starters is here. Someone is after Starters like Callie and Michael—teens with chips in their brains. They want to experiment on anyone left over from Prime Destinations—Starters who can be controlled and manipulated. With the body bank destroyed, Callie no longer has to rent herself out to creepy Enders. But Enders can still get inside her mind and make her do things she doesn’t want to do, like hurt someone she loves. Having the chip removed could save her life—but it could also silence the voice in her head that might belong to her father. Callie has flashes of her ex-renter Helena’s memories, too . . . and the Old Man is back, filling her with fear. Who is real and who is masquerading in a teen body? No one is ever who they appear to be. Determined to find the Old Man to stop him, and grasping at the hope of a normal life for herself and her younger brother, Callie is ready to fight for the truth. Even if it kills her.

I LOVED this book! A great ending to a great series!!!

EXCLUSIVE CONTENT REMOVED




Love it! I could read it at least 5 more times! If you want to buy ENDERS (you really should!), here's a link

Happy 2014 giveaway! Win Impostor audiobooks!

Happy belated New Year!
Today I finally finished my WIP! 94k, the longest book I've ever written! To celebrate typing "the end" and because I've always wanted to try out Rafflecopter, I've decided to giveaway two wonderful audiobooks of Impostor (Listening Library published the audiobook and Emily Rankin is reading it)!



I also just returned from London where I met my lovely UK publisher Hodder. Impostor came out in the UK about two weeks ago! You can see the cover on the right side. Here's a photo of me signing copies in the Hodder office.

And here's the giveaway! Good luck!

Impostor in the UK!

Today Impostor hits shelves in the UK! Yay! I'm very excited that my lovely UK readers finally get the chance to read my book.
Here's the pretty cover my awesome UK pub Hodder came up with:

Tessa is a Variant, able to absorb the DNA of anyone she touches and mimic their appearance. Shunned by her family, she's spent the last two years with the Forces with Extraordinary Abilities, a secret branch of the FBI. There she trains with other Variants, such as long-term crush Alec, who each have their own extraordinary ability.

When a serial killer rocks a small town in Oregon, Tessa is given a mission: she must impersonate Madison, a local teen, to find the killer before he strikes again. Tessa hates everything about being an impostor - the stress, the danger, the deceit - but loves playing the role of a normal girl. As Madison, she finds friends, romance, and the kind of loving family she'd do anything to keep.

Amid action, suspense, and a ticking clock, this super-human comes to a very human conclusion: even a girl who can look like anyone struggles the most with being herself.


As a way to celebrate my UK publication, I'll be spending the next few days in London and I'll finally meet the wonderful people working for Hodder! I hope I'll spot my book in the wild!

Cover reveal: Shattered Veil by Tracy E. Banghart

I'm super excited to be part of the cover reveal for Shattered Veil (The Diatous Wars #1) by my friend and crit partner Tracy E. Banghart. It's a New Adult Sci-fi novel and it's absolutely fabulous. I've read it several times and I can't tell you how much I loved it, and you will too.
But now it's time for the eye-candy:
Isn't it absolutely gorgeous? It reflects the book perfectly.


Here's the summary:

When everything that defines you is stripped away, who do you become?

Selection

War has come to Atalanta, infecting its quiet villages and lush woodlands, igniting whispered worries in its glittering capitol.

All across the dominion, young men are being Selected for Military and sent to the front lines…and eighteen-year-old Aris Haan’s childhood sweetheart is one of them.

Secrets

Pyralis Nekkos, Atalanta’s leader, has kept the truth from his people, that their dominion will fall…and much sooner than anyone could guess.

Galena Vadim, his reluctant ally, wishes she could forget their shared past...until her future seems to depend on it.

Sacrifice

And for the boy she loves, Aris, a talented wingjet pilot, will give up everything - her home, her name, even her face...

...only to become the key to her dominion's survival.


The book will be published February 28, 2014, but you can add it on goodreads now!


AUTHOR BIO

Tracy E. Banghart is a cheesy movie–loving, fantasy football–playing (go Ravens!), globe-trotting Army wife who began “practicing” her craft at the age of five, when she wrote her first story. She loves visiting the international friends she met while pursuing her MA in Publishing and spends a portion of every summer at her family’s cabin in Canada, where she finds inspiration and lots of time to relax on the dock. She lives with her husband, son, two lazy dogs and one ornery cat. When not writing or spending time with her family, she is on a mission to bake the perfect cupcake.
