I am reposting P.S. Martinez’s blog about her pre-release event.  I’m always willing to help authors get the word out about their books!  This event also has a rafflecopter, so I will link her blog to the picture.

 Here is the BLURB for CONTINGENCY (Book #1 in the Sage Hannigan Time Warper Series)

 Eighteen-year-old Sage Hannigan wants to get back to her own time, preferably one that hasn’t been destroyed by an underworld plot brewing in Edwardian-era South Carolina. How hard can it be?

All she has to do is:

1. Learn to use newly acquired warping skills to bend time to her will.
2. Take out a few rogue vampires.
3. Join an ancient secret society.
4. Figure out who is putting the time stream in jeopardy.
5. Find and maim whoever invented the corset.

Sage never asked to be chosen by the Druid Priestess, Amerach, to become a Warper and she never asked to have the future hanging on her shoulders or to warp a hundred years into the past. She certainly never asked to meet Dr. Aldwin Blake, who would make her question her desire to get back to her own time. But if she fails her mission, people will die, history will change, and the present she wishes to return to will be no more.

Operation Pinky Promise is simply this:Image

   Contingency will be ready to be released mid December! I am on a MISSION to get 500 PINKY PROMISES to purchase a copy (ebook OR paperback) of Contingency within 72 hours of LAUNCH DAY!

What is the difference between my book launch and the book launch of well-known Authors…except the amount of Word-of-Mouth advertising???

This old lady loves YA!

My children are grown.  My teenage years are a very distant memory. I love YA paranormal and YA paranormal romance books.  Yes, I admit it…in public!  The reason why I love YA books is that young adults and teenagers still have their whole lives ahead of them.  They have not been broken and made cynical by the world.  They still have hope.  Add some strange twist like super powers, or being part witch, werewolf, vampire or fae, and you have me hooked!  I mean, come on… who DOESN’T want to be different?  To find out that you are special or that you have a special gift when you are in the prime of your life with little to no worries is, I’m sure, a pretty common fantasy.  We all want our youth back, and we all want to be special.  Reading these books puts me right along side of these special characters so that I can live vicariously through them.

Elle Casey is a wonderful example of this type of book.  Her War Of The Fae series hooked me right in from the start, and each additional book in her series has been like continuing your dream where you left off the previous night.  I literally feel lost between the publishing of the books in that series!   Every reader should escape the real world when they read… the world would be a much more creative and wonderful place!

If you also enjoy YA books, click on the picture below to enter to win FIFTY YA books… yes, you read that right… FIFTY!!!
