Since I started this blog around August 2010, I haven't posted much about the novel I am working on.  There's good reason for that... It's complicated.

"Oh, you mean there are fabulous plot twists, backstories that come back to haunt characters at the most inopportune moments, and stakes that soar into the stratosphere?" 

No. Not that kind of complicated.... Well, I mean sort of.

ACROSS THE UNIVERSE Epic Contest of Epic! Giveaways, Swag, AND MORE!

Oh my gosh!!!!!   I am completely fangirling over the amazingly talented Beth Revis and her EPIC CONTEST OF EPIC!!!!!  Here are the facts:

1. Beth Revis is a 2011 debut author.  Her book, ACROSS THE UNIVERSE promises nothing less than hours of AWESOMESAUCE reading pleasure.

2. She is having an EPIC CONTEST OF EPIC during the month of December featuring 100 PRIZES!!!

3. Go to her website to find out all the details!

4. In order to qualify for the "BIG HUGE AMAZING GRAND PRIZE" you have to fan the facebook page, blog about the book, or pre-order ACROSS THE UNIVERSE from any online book sellers, or your favorite indy book store.

5.  You should DO THIS NOW, because  this book is as good as the hype!  (I have it from very trusted sources).  Plus, Kiersten White, author of super spunky PARANORMALCY blurbed AtU, so you know... it's gonna be great.

6. The competitive side of me really doesn't want anyone else to enter this contest so I can win, but since it is the Season of Giving, I am being generous in telling you about this contest!

So, there you go! Have fun, and enjoy all the exclamation points I used in this post.
