The Big Ol’ Book Blurb Giveaway! Free books! Free Stuff!

You know those quotes from other authors that are on the covers of some books?  Well guess what–I am the luckiest little writer in the world because I got AWESOME ONES!

Maybe you’ve heard of Huntley Fitzpatrick?  You know, the author of the fantastic, MY LIFE NEXT DOOR, and the upcoming WHAT I THOUGHT WAS TRUE?

Well, she is as lovely and kind as you might expect if you’ve read her book.  And she was generous enough to read an advanced copy of ASK AGAIN LATER and let us put her thoughts on the cover.  Thanks Huntley!  You should totally read her book, by the way.  And pre-order her new book, WHAT I THOUGHT WAS TRUE while you’re at it.  Because Huntley knows how to write the swoon-worthy romance, I assure you!


And perhaps you’ve also heard of Shaun David Hutchinson?  Author of THE DEATHDAY LETTER and FML?

Well Shaun has been so delightful to this newbie.  I started by fangirling him on Twitter, then sent him an email that literally had “OMG I’m terrified to send this!!” in the subject line.  But he’s super nice and so funny–what a shock if you’ve read his books, right?  He is also gracing us with a new book soon and you should probably put it on your to-read list.  It’s called The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley.  I know! You want to read it based on the title alone, right?  I do.


Anyway, to celebrate my good fortune to have these two amazing authors give my book their seal of approval, I’m holding a BIG OL’ GIVEAWAY!!

GRAND PRIZE:  Choose one book by each of my blurbers, PLUS get an ARC of ASK AGAIN LATER–there aren’t many left!!

FIRST PRIZE:  Choose any book by ONE of my blurbers.

SECOND PRIZE:  A $5 gift card to the bookseller of your choice and an autographed ASK AGAIN LATER bookmark.

THIRD PRIZE:  An autographed ASK AGAIN LATER bookmark.

Easy to enter.  All you have to do is share one of these images below on the social media of your choice!  There are some optimized for Facebook, others are square for Twitter or Instagram.  Any should work on Tumblr.  I’ll have them all up on my own social media if you prefer to go the easy route and “Share” from mine.

Unfortunately, since I have to ship a few of these things myself, I can’t offer this contest internationally.  But that still leaves a whole lotta peeps in the US!  The contest will run for 2 weeks, so get your social media engines revved!

Good luck!

Just kidding.

In case you missed it, Jessica’s first book, RENEGADE started off this fantastic trilogy.  I’ve been lucky enough to be in on this series since the beginning, since I am also lucky enough to have Jessica for a critique partner!  Seriously, you guys, I could not be more proud of her.

And I could not be more SQUEEEEEFUL about the cover for her new book.  Are you ready?  Have you already scrolled past here to see the big reveal?  You totally have, haven’t you?  I’m just talking to myself now, aren’t I?

*dies*  OMG the pretty!  The pretty!!!!  It almost hurts me!I thought the cover for RENEGADE was gorgeous, but I actually love this one even more! Let’s hop in the Way Back Machine and go revisit it, shall we?RENEGADE
Elysium Chronicles (Book 1)

Since the age of
three, sixteen-year-old Evelyn Winters has been trained to be Daughter of the
People in the underwater utopia known as Elysium. Selected from hundreds of
children for her ideal genes, all her life she’s thought that everything was
perfect; her world. Her people. The Law.
But when Gavin Hunter,
a Surface Dweller, accidentally stumbles into their secluded little world,
she’s forced to come to a startling realization: everything she knows is a lie.
Her memories have been
Her mind and body
aren’t under her own control.
And the person she
knows as Mother is a monster.
Together with Gavin
she plans her escape, only to learn that her own mind is a ticking time bomb…
and Mother has one last secret that will destroy them all.

So, yeah, that one was already gorgeous and now REVELATIONS IS EVEN BETTER!!

You know what?  Let’s just look at it again.  Maybe bigger this time.


And just in case you’ve already read RENEGADE, and you’re climbing the walls waiting for REVELATIONS, you can tide yourself over with a short story from Gavin’s perspective.  Did you know that?  Uh, yeah.  It’s in ebook format, and here’s the dish:

A Dark Grave:
Elysium Chronicles (Book 0.5)
An Elysium Chronicles
short story: the beginning.
There is only one place forbidden to the people of Gavin’s village; the island just off the shore, rumored to be haunted. Cursed.
All who venture to the island disappear.
But Gavin doesn’t believe in such things. He is a hunter; since his father’s death, he is the only one who can provide for the family. Silly rumors of ghosts aren’t going to stop him from crossing the dark waters to the island in search of fresh game…

And if all that weren’t enough, Jessica is also hosting a fantastic giveaway to celebrate her amazeballs new cover.

About J.A. Souders:
J.A. Souders was born in the heartland with an overactive imagination and an overabundance of curiosity that was always getting her into trouble. She first began writing at the age of 13, when she moved to Florida and not only befriended the monsters under the bed, but created worlds for them to play together.
Because she never grew up, she decided she’d put her
imaginary friends to work and started writing. She still lives in the land of sunshine and palm trees with her husband and their two children.
