GIVEAWAY: Signed ARC & Limited Edition Stitch Scarf!

To celebrate the release of the Stitch 2016 Revised Edition, I’m giving away three (3) awesome prize packs, each including a signed ARC and a limited edition Stitch scarf!!!

Stitch 2016 Revised Edition Signed ARC and Scarf Giveaway

These ARCs and scarves are some of only five in existence (the rest of which I’m hoarding for my own personal enjoyment), so I’m SUPER excited to be sharing these with fans of the trilogy!  The super-soft, cozy scarves were created by the one and only Litographs and feature the exact text from the revised edition of the book!  SO COOL.  (In case you were wondering, yes, I will be sporting mine all winter long!)  They also have tons of other awesome products if you’re looking for gift ideas for the literature lover in your life (or yourself, haha) – t-shirts, totes, posters, etc. – featuring your favorite classics (Pride and Prejudice, The Great Gatsby, Shakespeare), contemporary hits (Outlander, Cinder, The Time Traveler’s Wife), and more!  (Note: this is NOT a sponsored post, I’m just an unabashed fangirl! Lol).

In short, lots of goodness in this giveaway, so don’t miss out!!

Enter to win below – it’s totally free, open internationally, and will run until December 12th!

Giveaway: New Adult Book Club Reaches 6000 Members!

NABookClubVery excited that one of my favorite Goodreads Groups, the New Adult Book Club, has reached the huge milestone of 6,000 members in – get this – only a year and a half!  Pretty amazing considering that when I wrote Stitch in 2012, “New Adult” was only beginning to be recognized as a genre, and even just a year ago when one of my favorite bloggers and founder of the NA Book Club, Laura Carter, was featured in an article on the emerging New Adult genre in USA Today the group only had around 1,600 members.  That means they quadrupled in a year – incredible!!

So to celebrate, the NA Book Club is giving away TONS of prizes all this month, including (you guessed it!) an e-copy of Stitch or Shudder (winner’s choice).  To enter for all the great prize packs available, check out the Giveaway thread on Goodreads where you’ll find links to all the Rafflecopters.  Good luck, and congrats again to the all the amazing people at New Adult Book Club!!

“Will be haunting me until I can read the final installment” – LAST DAY on the Shudder Tour – Review + Giveaway

Wow, I can’t believe it’s September already… and you know what that means.  It’s the LAST OFFICIAL DAY of the Shudder Blog Tour!  Really??  That went by fast!

The Book RogueTo celebrate a successful summer-long tour for the latest release in the Stitch Trilogy, we’re capping things off with an awesome 5-star review at The Book Rogue (plus a chance to enter the grand finale giveaway!):

There were also some shocking aspects — in the regard that I don’t find them too absurd to actually happen, like right now. Genius and insanity are utterly and truly a very fine line that tends to blurr alot. … Alessa and Isaac proofed very strong, very conflicted, yet also very open characters. They struggled through a lot, partly by themselves and partly with the other. … Nikhil, Janie and Phoenix were used as nice threads to connect the dots. And Joe, oh Joe! I can’t spoil anything about him, but I know this will be hauting me until I can read the final installment. <continue reading>

Thank you so much to Caro for helping us wrap up the tour today, and to all the amazing bloggers who’ve participated all summer long.  And especially a big thanks to the readers – there certainly would be no tour without you guys!!  Best of luck in the grand finale giveaway (it’s still open for two weeks, so keep racking up those entries!), and stay tuned as I have it on good authority that there *might* be another bonus post or two coming up in the next few days…  :-)

Green Mountain CoupleHead to My Devotional Thoughts for “Crushing on (Main) Characters, Continued” highlights, then swing by Green Mountain Couple for a fab review (“I absolutely LOVE LOVED this book.

5 Star Reviews + “Praise for Pacing” & “Painstakingly Plotted World” Highlights & Giveaway

T-4 days on remaining on the Shudder Blog Tour and we’re celebrating with 2 excellent 5-star reviews and tour highlights featuring “Praise for Pacing” and “Painstakingly Plotted World!”

First, the “Praise for Pacing” highlights and an awesome review from Mel’s Shelves:

Oh, my! Dystopia at its finest! … Shudder takes off right out of the gate and doesn’t stop. We get the perspective of different people. … I loved all the back and forth and it wasn’t confusing at all. I had a hard time getting anything done since I just wanted to keep reading to see what would happen next. Hearing lots of different perspectives moved the book along at a fast pace and I was engrossed in this story. … And then the ending–I was not happy that I didn’t have book 3, Stuck, ready to start (there is a sneak peek at the end of Shudder, and I think I will love this one, too). If you are looking for a fantastic dystopian series, this is one I would highly recommend!!  <continue reading>

Next up, swing by Fundinmental for another amazing review (which you might remember from earlier in the tour, since Sherry was also kind enough to post way back in July!) along with highlights about the Stitch Trilogy’s “Painstakingly Plotted World.”

Thanks so much to Melanie and Sherry for hosting today!  And don’t forget to enter the grand finale giveaway at both of these stops…

“Fantastically original, well written, engaging” – Reviews, Highlights (“POV Perfection” & “Writerly Wisdom”) & Giveaway

Start the countdown – only 5 DAYS left in the Shudder Blog Tour!  Where did the time go??

Anyway, three more great stops today, including two stellar reviews and two more awesome set of highlights!  First, swing by YA Book Addict for an amazing 4.5 star review:

What a fantastic follow up to book one in the Stitch trilogy!! I absolutely loved it, from start to finish!!  … I truly loved Isaac in this book. He remained caring and supportive at all times. I think there was only one instance where he lost his cool and that was due to Alessa’s attitude, and if I’m honest, I would have lost it with her as well. … I absolutely loved Nikhil. I could really feel what he was experiencing and my heart ached for him. I think I actually looked forward to his portion of the story the most. … The one constant thought that kept coming at me while I was reading Shudder was the originality of it. I remember feeling the exact same way while I was reading Stitch. Personally, I have never read anything like it before and I have to give huge applause to an author who can create such a fantastically original, well written, engaging piece of writing. <continue reading>

Next up, check out a fantastic set of tour highlights on the topic of “POV Perfection” over at Library of a Book Witch.

MommasezAnd finally, head to Mommasez for another fab review AND highlights of “Writerly Wisdom!”

After reading Stitch, Book 1 in the Stitch Trilogy, I raved about the book and was super excited about reading Shudder. I HAD to find out what happened. I. Was. Not. Disappointed!! If anything, Samantha’s writing got even BETTER! What?! Yeah, you heard me! <continue reading>

And of course, you can enter the awesome grand finale giveaway at any of these stops!

Thanks so much to Tracey, Jennifer, and Cindi for hosting!!
