Giveaway Hop & Janie Interview @ Ensconced in YA

Stitch is taking part of a truly AWESOME giveaway hop today at Ensconced in YA, with a $5 Amazon giftcard AND an e-book copy as prizes!  And better yet, there’s an amazing interview with Janie in the post!  Here’s a preview:

Thank you so much, Janie, for joining us on Ensconced in YA, for this interview! I would love to hear a little about your background– where you grew up, what you are interested in studying in college, etc.

Janie: Thanks so much for having me, Christina!  I’m super excited to be here.  I grew up in an average suburban town not far from my college, Eastern State University, and to be honest, I really don’t know WHAT I want to study yet!  I enrolled in ESU’s liberal arts program, so I’m taking a lot of different classes right now and using my freshman year to figure it all out…  In the meantime, I’ve just been trying to make new friends and get to know the girls in my sorority, Z-E-Pi.  (And if you’re wondering what the REAL answer is, all I can say is that this isn’t *too* far from the truth, but my priorities my first year at ESU were actually a lot more… complicated… than just making friends and picking a major.)

Stop by Ensconced in YA today for the rest, and remember to enter the giveaway while you’re there!  And there are 100 other blogs participating in “Back to the Future: A Giveaway Hop Across Time” so swing by Book Haven Extraordinaire or I Am A Reader, Not A Writer for the whole list of participating blogs and TONS more chances to win!

Thanks so much to Christina of Ensconced in YA for finding this amazing opportunity for Stitch!!

Two Reviews & Guest Post @ Head Stuck In A Book & Books and Life

Two great reviews and an enlightening round of “This or That” with Janie up at our stops today!  First, check out Head Stuck In A Book for a review and the Janie interview:

Samantha: (laughs) Okay, next one.  String cheese: string it or eat it in bites?

Janie: STRING IT!  Oh my God, it drives me NUTS when people just bite into it!!  String cheese is practically a delicacy!  You’re supposed to savor it!

Samantha: (laughing) I knew that one would get you going…

Read the rest over at Head Stuck In A Book today!  Thanks so much to Sarah for hosting!!

Next we’ve got another fab review over at Books and Life!  Here’s a sneak peek:

Samantha Durante will be one of the authors that I recommend to my Young Adult Readers at the library were I work.  If you are looking for a read alike author for Suzanne Collins or P.C. Cast, Samantha Durante would be one of my top picks.

Ah!  Suzanne Collins??  I’m BEYOND flattered!!  Be sure to catch the rest at Books and Life today!  Big thanks to Joy for the huge compliment and for hosting!

Tomorrow we’re at Sliced Open Reviews for two more reviews, an author interview, and an e-book giveaway!  See you there!

Review, Guest Post & 3 Ebook Giveaway @ Lovey Dovey Books & Reading by Kindle Fire

Lots of goodness on our double-day countdown today, including a fabulous review up at Lovey Dovey Books, along with a guest post featuring Janie & Alessa AND a 3 e-book giveaway at Reading by Kindle Fire!  Here’s a sneak peek of the review:

The intricately crafted story allows readers to learn everything needed to understand the purely imaginative world proposed. There are subtle hints from the very beginning that all is not as it seems and Durante expertly executes the characters’ actions and reactions to create a strong, entertaining plot filled with mystery, romance, and danger.

Thanks so much to Candace for hosting and don’t miss the rest at Lovey Dovey Books!  Also remember to take a stroll over to Reading by Kindle Fire to check out the guest post where Janie and Alessa recount their hilarious first day at Eastern State University, and enter the 3 e-book giveaway at the end of the post!  Thanks also to Ning for hosting!

Tomorrow we’re going to Darlene’s Book Nook for a guest post about designing the Stitch cover and another 3 e-book giveaway, and then to Behind A Million and One Pages for a review!
