Two Week Countdown!

So there's this book coming out IN TWO WEEKS that you may have heard me mention before. That book, Of Poseidon by the talented Anna Banks.


Galen, a Syrena prince, searches land for a girl he's heard can communicate with fish. It’s while Emma is on vacation at the beach that she meets Galen. Although their connection is immediate and powerful, Galen's not fully convinced that Emma's the one he's been looking for. That is, until a deadly encounter with a shark proves  that Emma and her Gift may be the only thing that can save his kingdom. He needs her help--no matter what the risk. (summary from amazon.com)






You guys, I can't even begin to put into words how excited I am for this book to be out in the wild IN TWO WEEKS! I've watched this book grow from an idea and to see it complete and out there for everyone is incredible. I couldn't be more proud of Anna for her accomplishments. And to celebrate it with her! Yes! I'm going to the launch party on the date of release (I even took a vacation day for the occasion since it's back home).

I'm going to stop babbling and there to the point. Because...there is a point to this post. And REALLY good point. *drum roll* I'm giving away a SIGNED copy!!! That's right. It'll be SIGNED! I'll be picking up two copies at the launch party. One for me and one for the lucky winner. Now, if for some reason we happen to sell out of books on the day of the event, I have a backup plan. I happen to know where Anna lives (not in a creepy stalker way, she's my sister-in-law *shakes head*) so I'll order a copy and take it to her directly. One way or the other, the winner WILL get a signed copy. And whatever kind of swag I can pick up.

I hope you're all as excited about this giveaway as I am. This book holds such a special place in my heart that I can't wait to share it with one of you.

Toxic by Jus Accardo! And...my mind is drawing a blank, but that is a bad one! I'm sure you already know I want to read that one pretty bad, lol.

Closed Hearts by Susan Kaye Quinn. I liked the first in the series, Open Minds, better than Hunger Games. More mind games, plenty of action and less gross-out gore.
