Fool For Books Giveaway Hop

Fool-for-Books

Welcome to the Fool for Books Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer! I am celebrating Spring and life in general. No joke!

Book 2 of The Glister Journals is closer to being finished and the The Glister Journals website has a new look. I'd love for you to stop by and check it out. The button for the second book will begin working as soon as the title and cover are revealed. I still have things to add, but would appreciate any feedback. Is something missing? Was something not working? Is there something you'd like to see added? Please feel free to leave me a note here or on the website's contact page. Thanks!

For this giveaway I'm giving a $25 Amazon giftcard and a paperback copy of Bronze, first novel in my contemporary YA lit series. Good luck!

“We all make assumptions every day. Some more important than others. Some more damaging than others. And things, very often, are not at all what they seem.”

Allison Anderson is a normal but not exactly average fourteen year old girl. She knows she’s a little different, but it hadn’t bothered her too much—until now. Moving away from everything she has ever known to a new house, new neighborhood, and new school is bad enough but it’s her first year of high school too. She’s more aware of her social and physical limitations than ever before. And then there are the new people she meets: the tough-looking girl in her home room; the cute but dangerous-looking boy she first saw before school even started; the quiet, older girl who keeps to herself; the sullen-looking, seemingly isolated junior that doesn’t seem to trust or like her at all. Can they be friends? She’s been the victim of bullying in the past; can she trust them? While her peaceful new home only amplifies her doubts, she begins to learn that things are not always what they seem. Her world is turned upside-down by these and other new friends, two-legged and otherwise. Life soon becomes more complicated, and much more interesting!

*EDIT*

Wow you guys! Thanks for the great participation and for following me here, there, and everywhere! I'm so happy, I decided to spread the love around and give two prizes instead of one. I can't do it ALL the time, but you never know . . .

March update . . .

Apologies for being late with this month's soundtrack clue. I'm having severe computer issues and unable to access the internet at the moment through my own computer. This makes online life pretty difficult! It looks like I'll have to buy a new one which I was really hoping I wouldn't have to do yet, but if it shuts down completely, I'm sunk! I haven't been online much anyway as I really am writing, transcribing, and revising like crazy! (Plus working, of course.) I've already gone past my original (self-imposed) deadline so am working extra hard to get everything done as quickly as possible. With lots of help from my most severe critic, of course....

Buu offering literary advice

The good news is, I am moving into beta-reader stage and will be sending first chapters out soon. Book cover should be coming along soon too. Yay!

So, on to this month's clue. Since the past couple have been a bit vague, I'll give you something more concrete this month.

    CLUE #9 Some of the artists represented in the soundtrack can be found on my Pinterest "Music" board.
    Not all the artists are there, but the board represents some of my favorite artists and the kinds of music I listen to most.

I hope that helps! Updates will be a bit slow until my computer issues are solved, but I still have book and music reviews to do so I'll try to post again soon!
