GUEST AUTHOR JESSICA SHIRVINGTON
Today, I am hosting Jessica Shirvington for the YA Scavenger Hunt! Jessica is the author of the EMBRACE SERIES, a young-adult paranormal romance series that debuted with the novel Embrace, followed by Entice, Emblaze and now Endless. The final book in the series, Empower, will be released in early 2014. The series has now been published in many international markets. Jessica lives in Sydney with her husband and their two daughters and combines her writing career with juggling the demands of motherhood.
During the Hunt Jessica is offering a copy of her latest release, Endless! Here’s the blurb: LOVE WILL KILL US ALL. Angels are real. They aren’t always kind. And now Hell is about to unleash its worst. In the highly anticipated fourth book of the series Entertainment Weekly calls “”addictive”” and a “”must read,”” Violet thinks she is finally getting her life under control. Then all hell breaks loose – literally. Now Violet must embrace every facet of her angel self to save the people she cares about the most and the world as she knows it. But death is not the worst thing Violet will face. For her, the endless question: “”Can love conquer all?”” will finally be answered.
Here it is, readers! The Endless_Excerpt Chap 1 & 2. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
And because I couldn’t resist, I’m throwing in the Endless book trailer.
And don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of signed books by me, Jessica, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 25. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the blue team and you’ll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!
CONTINUE THE HUNT
Now for a chance to win a copy of my new YA, Goodbye, Rebel Blue–the story of a loner rebel who reluctantly completes the bucket list of a recently deceased do-gooder classmate, all you need to do is list one item in the comments section below from your bucket list. In other words, list one thing you want to do before you die. I send good thoughts and positive energy to all who share, and to one lucky poster chosen randomly, I’ll mail a copy of Goodbye, Rebel Blue.
Finally, to keep going on your quest for the hunt, you need to check out the next author, Ann Aguirre!
