It's promo week at the cafe and I almost missed my turn as I was in Las Vegas celebrating my b-day with my amazing husband-- Thanks babe you ROCK!!
And even though a b-day celebration is a sort of promo of sorts (I mean all that cake and champagne was kind of like a promo of moi) luckily, I made it back just in time to promote my new book.
Or rather, my new series of books.
Or even more specifically the first two books in my new series of books, EVERMORE (o2.03.09) and BLUE MOON (08.04.09)
Now, if you've been to the cafe before, then you've probably already heard me mention my new IMMORTALS series, at least once.
But definitely no more than thrice.
Okay, probably more than thrice, but I digress.
Anyway, I'm very excited about this new series, partly because I'm the excitable type, and partly because it's been really fun to write, the research has been awesome, and it's a bit of a departure in that it's a paranormal about a psychic girl and a very mysterious boy--and yet not a HUGE departure in that the girl is 16 and lives in Laguna Beach.
Also, during the writing of these books some very cool things have happened, EVERMORE received the 5 STAR GOLD AWARD from TeensReadToo, the first two books sold at auction in Germany, EVERMORE sold to Spain as one of their lead fall titles, and I've sold three more books in the series to St. Martin's Press (to be published in 2010)- making for a total of five! Oh, and early reader feedback has been great (and very much appreciated!)!
And since it constitutes a whole new addition to the Alyson Noel ouevre I asked the amazing Maddee over at Xuni do a little website makeover to include the new series and I think she did an amazing job!
So, in honor of all of my excitement, and in honor of YOU for reading this far, I'm giving away 2 signed copies (I'm talking hot off the press author copies!) of EVERMORE to two randomly selected commenters who visit my website, clicks on the EVERMORE cover, enters the portal, goes to the "Extras" page, picks a song from the playlist, then comes back here and posts the song in the comments section. (Not as involved as it sounds-- I promise!)
And all you have to do to start the journey toward winning is click HERE.
The small print starts here: Contest closes at midnight, Laguna Beach time. Two winners will be chosen at random, and announced on Monday, December 8. Author copies usually arrive before the books hit the shelves (scheduled bookstore drop is on Feb 3, 2009) but please keep in mind that my CRUEL SUMMER copies didn't find their way to my doorstep until very late, and as these things are out of my hands, your patience is very much appreciated.
Oh, and speaking of . . .CRUEL SUMMER was nominated for the Best Books of 2008!!!
