Young Adult Paranormal Activity Giveaway Hop

Thursday, February 23, 2012



(This giveaway is now closed, I'll email the winners very soon. 187 of you entered!! Thank you for visiting my blog,  and good luck!!!)

Welcome to another giveaway hop hosted by I'm a Reader, Not a Writer, and vvb32 reads.

I've found that I just can't resist some sort of paranormal element when writing a story. Those are the kinds of books I tend to reach for when I want something to read too. The Fateful Trilogy includes everything from naughty pixies to terrifying werewolves and vampires. But I also added mermaids, witches, a sorceress and fairies! Fair Maiden is a twist on Sleeping Beauty with ghost and fey elements-along with a heavy dose of magic, and big dollop of sweet romance. If you don't like anything of those things, then my books might not be for you. If you do, well then, perhaps I have something for you to read!

~I'll choose two winners this time. One for a printed book and one for an eBook.~


Prize #1: (I'm opening this up to my international readers as well!) I'm giving away any one of my printed books shipped to you from The Book Depository. (This is for Fateful, Fractured, Forever, or Fair Maiden) Please check with them to make sure they deliver to your country before you enter.

Prize #2: (USA only)
A gifted eBook copy of any of my books. (Note: Fateful is Amazon Prime, I can only gift the Kindle of that book. Everything else, I can gift you Nook or Kindle.)

Fair Maiden
It's the Victorian era in England, but she is from the medieval past. She awakens within a castle she has never seen before. Knowledge of her name also evades her. However, even worse than not knowing who or where she is, she cannot recall how she died or why she is dressed as a bride.

Along with Christian, the earl of the castle she haunts, she tries to discover who she is and break the spell holding her in a prison of death. They never imagined the curse keeping them apart is the only thing protecting her, until it's too late.


Fateful
A huge fan of Jane Austen, Danielle hopes to find her own Mr. Darcy when she leaves Colorado to attend art school in London. Of course she knows it's silly to wish for that, naive even. But she's met enough males who lacked respect for women, a growing trend it seemed. And at nineteen...well.... However, on only her second night there she gets lost and is threatened by a stalker who proves to be immune to her martial arts training. Before she is completely overpowered, she is then saved by Ethan Deveroux.

While Danielle does find the romance she seeks in Ethan, he's no Mr. Darcy. Her hero is held by a spell which fractures their chance at a happy ending. During the day Ethan is closer to mortal than immortal and can date her like any other man. Yet, as the sun sets, the powerful magic of an ancient curse returns and the evil of that spell is revealed. When that magic begins, Danielle's fairytale romance ends because Ethan Deveroux is a vampire.



Fractured

The Fateful Trilogy continues with Fractured. No, it's not called Fractured because Ethan and Danielle break up, because they don't...in case you were wondering. They had thought they'd escaped most of the danger surrounding them, when in truth they've made it worse by unintentionally sparking a civil war amongst vampires. Many vampires want to protect them for discovering the cure to the curse binding their kind. However many more want to destroy them for that same discovery. Ethan's and Danielle's struggle for survival intensifies while they sink deeper into the midst of this danger. The romantic fairytale bliss they once had will soon fracture under the pressure of the curse....



Forever
Danielle and Ethan may have solved their problem with vampires, but other magical beings have taken interest in the ones who discovered the cure.

On the run trying to escape a gaggle of evil pixies, a clan of creepy werewolves, a coven or two of wicked witches, and a school of lovely but malicious mermaids, they fight to have a normal life. But that isn't so easy when the only aid they have is from slightly dishonest fairies and flirtatious vampire bodyguards.

This is Danielle and Ethan's happily forever after....

I don't really know.. Maybe because love is such an important subject an when it goes paranormal, it is more "safe" and maybe harder to get you hope up about it happening in the real world since it isn't "real"

Gayle said...

YA paranormal is a lot of fun because practically anything goes and most of the time YA books are generally clean. It's easy to get lost in the story!

Soumi@Pages From My Thoughts said...

I love paranormal because it leads me away to a unknown world of adventure,some forbidden love, far away from my day to day hectic real life. The journey through the ups and downs, fearing what's gonna happen next keeps me wake till late night and I found myself flipping through the pages of paranormal romance. And love in every paranormal books are so perfect i forget the breakups in cruel real worlds, they are just perfect. Paranormal romance are the way to forget my stress and a comfortable pace where I can be myself.

I love YA paranormal because its an escape from the everyday, yes your significant other may love you till the end of time, but in books perhaps that person is vampire or ghost and there are all these cool *or not so cool* adventures you can go on. It nice to escape the ordinary sometimes :)

Julie W said...

I love paranormal books because more often than not I really need a break from reality (and not a psychotic break!!) :D The paranormal genre opens up the writer's mind to whatever they can imagine - they aren't boxed in by just what is, but what they imagine could be - and that is what makes it so fun!!

Rachel V said...

I love paranormal because there are so many different aspects in paranormal...I dont care for much of the romance, but i like how there are different ways authors use ledgends, or their own creativity to make a new paranormal world in their stories.
Some paranormals in YA, you can actually relate to the main characters..

Sarah Walker said...

YA paranormal makes me want to believe in the impossible and feeds my hunger for books about the unexplained.

avry15 said...

I love paranormal since it's unique and there are no boundaries as to the plot, the characters and even the setting..:)

Rea said...

Honestly, I love that it doesn't get caught up in clunky sex scenes as the adult paranormals tend to do! Though I will ofc agree that there are some adult paranormals out there that simply rock! YA paranormals tend to concentrate on the actual story more. :)

DominikaCouf said...

i love magic and witches because of mystery :D

WulfLuva said...

Just being able to get away from real-world issues is what I love about paranormal. Plus the great romance that comes with it! :)

Katrina said...

I like that it's not the same thing time after time. I need new and different. :)

Katrina said...

I like that it's not the same thing time after time. I need new and different. :)

Stacy said...

I love fantsy because I love the idea that anything is possible. For example, despite having an unnatural fear of vampires, I love the idea of were-animals. That is why I wrote Shepherds Moon - its the story of a woman who can communicate with animals and is the Shepherd of an eclectic pack of Shifters. She's sort of a "were-whisperer". this storyline would not be possible in traditional literature, but anything goes in fantasy...

Kelley said...

Why? Easy, I love fantasy and I enjoy a cleaner first love that they tend to have. The first of feelings and new adventures. That since of a character stepping out on there own on a paranormal level. Love it! Thank you for the giveaway!

Passionate Bookworm said...

Paranormal books.. they just suck me in. I like to think about the impossible, or well.. just a little more out there things. They take me out of my head and into their world. Rather than like with contemporaries.. they make me think about reality too much. When I read I want to escape and Paranormal fiction does that for me

Kimberly R. said...

I love paranormal because I can escape to another world!
Thanks :)

Judy said...

I love YA paranormal books because I enjoy them and my teenage granddaughters can read most of them> That is really why I started reading the genre, so they could have more books to read.

Phaedra Seabolt said...

I love paranormal romance because it has all the romance your can want and something that you can imagine. Reading about normal human romance makes me think of what I don't have in my relationship. If the characters are paranormal, I tend to not feel like I am missing anything in my relationship. We aren't paranormal, therefore we can't have all that I am reading. It allows me to enjoy the story more thinking that way.

TwinMom said...

I love paranormal because like others have said, anything can happen. I also love the escape it provides!

Unknown said...

I adore YA Paranormal because the possibilities are endless - as a 47 year old woman, who still feels like a young adult inside, these books feed my imagination and fantasies! They allow me to remain young, free and still able to believe in the impossible :) I love it!

Thank you so much for participating in this hop and for the generous giveaway chance! I have the first book downloaded on my kindle ready to read as soon as I finish the one I am on now - SQUEE!!

My first blog hope!

Sophia Rose said...

I always find the situations of the teens so outside of reality and the fantasy worlds so creative. Then there are the gorgeous covers that catch my eye.

Thanks for participating in the hop and for the giveaway opportunity.

Kristi Herbrand said...

It seems like there is always some love story in a YA paranormal - and who can forget the way they felt with their first love. Kids have a lot more faith and trust in the "unseen" so I like that they can buy into the stories easier than if they were "adult" paranormals.

mimirose41209 said...

I like paranormal because anything can happen ... fall in love with someone/thing supernatural, fall in love with another human in a supernatural world etc

soulunsung said...

I have always loved paranormal, because it can be dark and omnious, good or bad, most of the time in between. It's just beautifully gothic and I love getting lost in it. :)
