28 Days of Winter Escapes

I'm excited to report that today kicks off Harper Teen's 28 Days of Winter Escapes book-a-day giveaway event!

28 Fabulous Books. 28 Fabulous Authors. 28 Fabulous Blogs.

Each day a new book will be featured and up for giveaway on the official site along with a corresponding poll. Answer the poll and be entered to win an autographed copy of the book! Once a week a larger prize will be up for grabs as well, including an iPod Touch. Each day the author of that book will also be found on one of the participating blogs talking about their book. I'm stoked to be taking part in this super fun event. On February 20th, I'll be hosting author Rachel Hawthorne here on the blog as she talks about her upcoming book Shadow of the Moon--the fourth in the Dark Guardian series, which is due out March 23rd. In the meantime, be sure to check out each of the giveaways starting today!

  1. Oooh...that sounds exciting. Chance of winning free books is always an attention getter. Is it a particular genre in teen fiction or just random books published by Harper?

  2. Lan, it looks like they run the gamut as far as YA is concerned. There are contemporaries, fantasy, urban fantasy, and one historical. Just all Harper Teen titles. Lots of good stuff, it looks like.

Terms of Endearment

Have you ever been reading a book, moving along quite nicely, and then--bam--a character whips out a particular term of endearment that just yanks you right out of the story? It happened to me recently, and I'm sad to say I couldn't recover. I did try. But she just kept using that term and I . . . I had to get the hell out of Dodge. Buh-bye, story. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. I'm not saying this is the norm (thank goodness). I can put up with a certain amount of treacly back and forth when it comes to the exchange of terms of endearment, especially if they fit the characters, their background, culture, the tenor of their relationship, etc. And the history of these terms at home and from around the world is often fascinating (at times hilarious). But there comes a point where I can't see past the cheese and/or weird anymore and I do not want to be with these people any longer. Shallow? Perhaps. But it's a very individual thing, isn't it?

Interview with Sara Creasy + Children of Scarabaeus Giveaway!

Today is the release day for Sara Creasy's Children of Scarabaeus--the second book in her wonderful Scarabaeus duology. I'm delighted to be celebrating release day with an interview with Ms. Creasy. I picked up Song of Scarabaeusa couple of weeks ago, fell immediately in love, and set about getting my hands on an ARC ofthe sequel as quickly as possible (you can read my reviews here and here). This is the kind of science fiction I love--character-driven and exciting, set against the background of a fully developed and eerily fascinating world. If you haven't had a chance to pick up these books, now is the perfect time. Please welcome Sara Creasy!  First things first: The Covers. I am kind of a fan of Chris McGrath’s covers, and I love the little touches on these two that make them unique to Edie & Finn’s story. Did you have any input on the covers and what was your reaction upon seeing the first one? Isn’t his work amazing? As soon as I found out he was doing my SONG OF S…
