Camp and Vacay

Hey peeps! As I type this, I am getting ready to head out for camp for 3 days. (but my mom is going to let me use her 4G internet so I can get on FB and Twitter in the evenings. ;))

I'm going to camp to be a helper for my sister's cabin, along with my mom. So if you could pray for patience, and that no one gets hurt, or the heats too much, I would love that. :)

I'll be getting back on Friday afternoon, and then I'll be leaving on Saturday for vacation!! I'll be at Lake Erie for a week, it's going to be awesome. :D I'm looking forward to writing and reading by the lake and in the sunshine!

Well, I'll be back on Friday!! <3 you guys!

*Fangirled*

Ok so...I just read the MS of an author friend of mine, and well...it was awesome.

And I think that you should check it out. It hasn't come out yet, but...it has a Goodreads page...which I made for her.

Link: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15773260-breaking-shadows

Annnnnd....the awesome cover!!


And summary:

"Jesse and her older brother, Ben, rebuilt the Resnik army after it was nearly wiped out in an ambush 8 years ago. Building this army upon the values of friendship, chivalry, and brotherhood, they believe they hold the key to unlocking the long-lost life of the American Dream. Now, having nearly reached it's previous height of glory, they wait with bated breath for their chance to change the future of the country. But with the army hot on their tail, undercovers everywhere, and danger around each turn, can they really launch an attack that would turn the tide of the battle for the American Dream?"

Awesome right??

Don't worry, I'll be keeping update on the news of Breaking Shadows: Bold in the future. ;)

There, me *fangirling*. I hope you enjoyed it. hehe

Old Title and Cover of SHADOW FUTURE

Ok....you guys all voted. And the majority wanted to know about the old title and cover of Shadow Future.

So......

At first.....Shadow Future had 2 title before SF,

The first title was:

Two Rings. (for those you have read it, will know what this means, and it's also the series name!)

And here's what the cover was:


Pretty right?? But the problem was....one of my editors said the title didn't fit. So...I changed it again.

To....Dark Future.

Here's the cover for that:


(there were several others, but I'm just going to show you this one. ;))

And then finally...Shadow Future. And it just fit. :)

I think AnnaSophia Robb has competition

Just today, I noticed how much alike Pearl and actor Emma Stone look.

Take this picture from The Amazing Spiderman for instence:

*JUST* how I imagined her. (pretty close anyway)

Also, I noticed that Andrew Garfield looks a lot like Adskhan too...


Andrew is a defiant Adskhan for sure.

But I don't know...AnnaSophia and Emma are pretty close...



Also, Emma has that spirit that Pearl has tucked away inside of her. And she can be quiet at times too, and funny. (as seen in The Amazing Spiderman) I'm just not sure...

I would be happy if either of them got picked for a movie SOME DAY. (I would be happy if ANYONE got her party in a movie....*day dreams away*)

Now to find a perfect Max...

-Madison

PS: And with Emma and Andrew dating...It might be perfect. ;)) (*this may or not be a spoiler*)

INBETWEEN Cover Reveal!

Hey everyone! I am very happy to get to help with the reveal of Inbetween, by Tara Fuller!


Inbetween
Blurb:
Since the car crash that took her father’s life two 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 heck about spending time with Emma, but Finn couldn’t let her die before, and he’s not about to let her die now. He will protect the girl he loves from the evil he accidentally unleashed, even if it means sacrificing the only thing he has left. His soul.

Publication Date: August, 2012
Imprint: Entangled Teen
Novel length: 400 pages 
Format: Trade paperback and eBook
           Add Inbetween to Goodreads

And now....the COVER!




And...the book trailer! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyKcAyxrTnQ&feature=youtu.be



About The Author: Tara Fuller writes novels. Some about grim reapers. Some about witches. All of course are delightfully full of teen angst and kissing. Tara grew up in a one stop light town in Oklahoma where once upon a time she stayed up with a flash light reading RL Stine novels and only dreamed of becoming a writer. She has a slight obsession with music and a shameless addiction for zombie fiction, Mystery Science Theater, and black and white mochas. Tara no longer lives in a one stop light town. Now she lives with her family in a slightly larger town in North Carolina where they have at least three stoplights.
Where you can find Tara.

Christmas in July Giveaway Hop!


Hey everyone! My post is a bit late, but here's a hint of what book I'm giving away! ;)

Summary:

Mia Price is a lightning addict. She’s survived countless strikes, but her craving to connect to the energy in storms endangers her life and the lives of those around her.

Los Angeles, where lightning rarely strikes, is one of the few places Mia feels safe from her addiction. But when an earthquake devastates the city, her haven is transformed into a minefield of chaos and danger. The beaches become massive tent cities. Downtown is a crumbling wasteland, where a traveling party moves to a different empty building each night, the revelers drawn to the destruction by a force they cannot deny. Two warring cults rise to power, and both see Mia as the key to their opposing doomsday prophecies. They believe she has a connection to the freak electrical storm that caused the quake, and to the far more devastating storm that is yet to come.

Mia wants to trust the enigmatic and alluring Jeremy when he promises to protect her, but she fears he isn’t who he claims to be. In the end, the passion and power that brought them together could be their downfall. When the final disaster strikes, Mia must risk unleashing the full horror of her strength to save the people she loves, or lose everything.



Giveaway!! US ONLY. (Sorry INTL!)

Negative Review: Life will go on!

Got my first negative review today, but....life will go on. I have people who love it, and that's all that matters. And besides, Shadow Future (ebook v.) isn't edited enough anyway. But the paperbacks are. It was just a huge mess.

Anyway...enough with the sad stuff, SHADOW FUTURE is 0.99 for NOOK until July 4th! My gift to you!!
