Blurb:

What if you were mankind’s last chance at survival?

Sixteen-year-old Tess lives in a compound in what was once the Western United States, now decimated after a devastating fourth World War. But long before that, life as we knew it had been irrevocably changed, as women mysteriously lost the ability to bring forth life. Faced with the extinction of the human race, the government began the Council of Creators, meant to search out alternative methods of creating life. The resulting artificial human beings, or Chosen Ones, were extraordinarily beautiful, unbelievably strong, and unabashedly deadly.

Life is bleak, but uncomplicated for Tess as she follows the rigid rules of her dystopian society, until the day she begins work at Templeton, the training facility for newly created Chosen Ones. There, she meets James, a Chosen One whose odd love of music and readin…

Blurb:
"My name is Beatrice. When I was born, I was blessed with the Sight. I was
immediately removed from my parents and enrolled in the Institution. At

YA Author Interview: TRISHA WOLFE!

Author Name: Trisha Wolfe
Title: Destiny’s Fire 
Release Date: January 10, 2012 
Blurb:
It’s the year 2040, and sixteen-year-old Dez Harkly is one of the last of her kind—part of a nearly extinct race of shape-shifters descended from guardians to the Egyptian pharaohs. Her home and her secret are threatened when the Council lowers the barrier, allowing the enemy race to enter the Shythe haven.

As the Narcolym airships approach, Dez and her friends rebel against their Council and secretly train for battle. Not only is Dez wary of war and her growing affection for her best friend Jace, but she fears the change her birthday will bring. When Dez’s newfound power rockets out of control, it’s a Narcolym who could change her fate… if she can trust him.

Dez’s guarded world crumbles when she discovers why the Narcos have really come to Haven Falls, and she's forced to choose between the race who raised her and the enemy she's feared her whole life.

INBETWEEN by Tara Fuller Cover Reveal!

I am so thrilled to reveal the cover for Tara Fuller's upcoming YA paranormal romance, INBETWEEN. Tara's writing is wonderful, the synopsis crazy awesome, and after seeing this amazing cover I have to have this book, like now. So, enough rambling and onto the show:

INBETWEEN (Kissed by Death, #1) by Tara Fuller (August 7, 2012) .

Blurb: . Since the car crash that took her father’s life three years ago, Emma’s
life has been a freaky—and unending—lesson in caution. Surviving
“accidents” has taken priority over being a normal seventeen-year-old, so
Emma spends her days taking pictures of life instead of living it. Falling
in love with a boy was never part of the plan. Falling for a reaper who
makes her chest ache and her head spin? Not an option.

It’s not easy being dead, especially for a reaper in love with a girl fate
has put on his list not once, but twice. Finn’s fellow reapers give him
hell about spending time with Emma, but Finn …

A Collective THANK YOU!

The last 48 hours have been amazing for me. I'm humbled and thankful and just so completely in awe of the wonderful YA community. What many of you do not know is the cover for GRAVITY leaked on Amazon Wednesday afternoon. I freaked out, sure that any hope of a "cover reveal" was lost.

Then a few people came to the rescue--Liz Pelletier, my publisher, Stacey O'Neale, my publicist, and Jaime Arnold. Before I could think, a reveal was set in motion for midnight on Wednesday. And it was crazy. I stayed awake until 1:30 a.m., watching in wonder as my cover went live on countless blogs. I won't lie to you, it brought me to tears.

I have since tried to personally thank every blogger that took the time to promote my book, but to further that, I wanted to post as many of the links as I could find here so you could see just how magnificent this thing was. Please find a list below of participating sites in GRAVITY's cover reveal. I thank each of you and wish so much …

Books you didn't expect to like

I thought it would be fun to list a few books that either are outside our preferred genre, or just didn't appear to be our taste, that we ended up loving. It's amazing how sure we are of certain books, only to dive in and have them change our mind. I love when this happens. And I really love when those books become favorites.

So here's a list of 5 books I wasn't 100% sure I'd like and ended up loving:

The Little Stranger by Sarah WatersCatching Jordan by Miranda KenneallyA Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba BrayAnna and the French Kiss by Stephanie PerkinsAngelfall by Susan Ee Now share some of yours!
