Hi All!
Today is my spot on the Attack of the Alien Dung blog tour and I am here today to give you a chance to win the book! For how to enter the giveaway, keep reading to the end of the post!


About the Book

Attack of the Alien Dung The Pet Defenders Code:
1. The safety of Planet Earth depends on you.
2. Humans MUST NOT know the truth. GOOD LUCK – you’ll need it…

It’s up to Mitzy and Biskit to save the world from alien invasions – just so long as they can stop fighting like cat and dog for long enough to do it!

Secret agent Biskit is not happy when he discovers his new partner Mitzy is a cat – everyone knows that cats and dogs don’t mix. But saving the earth from alien invasions must come first and the planet is under attack! A cluster of cow pats has flown into town and they’re whipping up a stink… It’s time for Biskit and Mitzy to put aside their differences and kick some alien butt!

Cover Reveal & Giveaway; The Other Me by Suzanne van Rooyen

Posted on 25 November, 2013 by Faye - 2 Comments

Hey Guys!
So today I am here with a cover reveal of The Other Me by Suzanne van Rooyen. This sounds like a fantastic book and it is a lovely cover too, hopefully you’re as excited as I am for this one! Scroll to the bottom of this post for some excerpt images and a giveaway! Without further ado, here’s the cover!

OtherMeFS

Fifteen-year-old Treasa Prescott thinks she’s an alien. She doesn’t fit in with the preppy South African private school crowd and feels claustrophobic in her own skin. Treasa is worried she might spend life as a social pariah when she meets Gabriel du Preez. Gabriel plays the piano better than Beethoven, has a black belt in karate, and would look good wearing a garbage bag. Treasa thinks he’s perfect. It might even be love, as long as Gabriel doesn’t find out she’s a freak.

As Treasa spends time with Gabriel, she realizes she might not love him as much as she wants to be him, and that the reason she feels uncomfortable in her skin might have less to do with extra-terrestrial origins and more to do with being born in the wrong body.

But Gabriel is not the perfect boy Treasa imagines. He harbors dark secrets and self-destructive tendencies. Still, Treasa might be able to accept Gabriel’s baggage if he can accept who she longs to be.

New Adult Read-a-Thon Mini-Challenge; Rewrite the Synopsis

Posted on 28 July, 2013 by Faye - 5 Comments

NAReadathon1

Hey Guys!
So today I am hosting the Rewrite the Synopsis challenge!
All you have to do is take a New Adult book that you have read (either for the read-a-thon or before it) and re-write the synopsis.
You can either comment it below or make your own post about it, but you’ll get a chance to win a prize if you do!


Example
The Secret of Ella & Micha; Original Synopsis;
The girl he thinks he loves needs to disappear. I don’t want tonight to be irreversible, so I pull away, breathing him in one last time.

Ella and Micha have been best friends since childhood, until one tragic night shatters their relationship and Ella decides to leave everything behind to start a new life at college, including Micha.

But now it’s summer break and she has nowhere else to go but home. Ella fears everything she worked so hard to bury might resurface, especially with Micha living right next door. Micha is sexy, smart, confident, and can get under Ella’s skin like no one else can. He knows everything about her, including her darkest secrets. And he’s determined to win back the girl he lost, no matter what it takes.

My Synopsis;
Hidden underneath the surface is a love so strong, it is only a matter of time before it breaks free. How long will it take for Ella to bury her feelings for him when he continues to try and pry her open? She’s ready to simply bury herself and never come out of her shell. What will happen if he finally brings everything to the surface? Will it be as brilliant as he always imagined or will he break her in ways he never expected? There’s only one way to find out…

Naturally the new synopsis doesn’t have to be amazing. Have fun with it. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!


The Prize
One winner will either win a signed copy of Beautiful Disaster (UK Only) or a Book of Choice (up to £10) from TBD. (INT)

All you need to do is enter the rafflecopter below!

Guidelines
- You MUST be a Read-a-thon participant – and be fully signed up!
- Winners will be e-mailed and will have 72 hours to respond.
- Open INTERNATIONALLY
- Please read my Giveaway Policy
- Good Luck!

Snapshots Birthday Bash (+ Giveaway!)

Posted on 23 July, 2013 by Faye - 4 Comments

Hey Guys!
Today I am here with a guest post from the lovely Patricia Lynne for the birthday of her first novel Snapshots.
You can find my review of this book here!


When Faye suggested I write about Snapshots’ first year being published, I cringed a little. From release day, it hasn’t had smooth sailing. In my excitement to release Snapshots, I stumbled and fell flat on my face.

I managed to pick myself up though and limped along with Snapshots, doing the best I could. It didn’t help that I was unemployed (a two hour a week job delivering papers isn’t really a job.) Marketing a book with no budget? Getting teeth pulled is easier. I found promotion where I could. There are plenty of sites that offer it for little or no cost. Thank you to all those sites! Some days I could do nothing for Snapshots. Bills needed to be paid and I had to eat. Sorry Cyc.

Things are better now. I have a day job and steady income that will make marketing my books much easier. *Day dreams about hitting the best sellers lists.* I can look back at Snapshots’ first year and appreciate the learning experiences I had. It was my struggling writer year and I survived it.


SNAPSHOTS FINAL My name is Cyclop Blaine and I am a real person.
“You are mine.”
I am a real person: heedless of a childhood spent under the supervision of an old man I only know as Master.
“You belong to me.”
I am a real person: regardless of my teenage years bound by violence as the adoptive son of the Victory Street Gang’s leader.
“You will obey me.”
I am a real person: despite the visions I see in others’ eyes. Snapshots of their futures.
“You will cower before me.”
I am a real person: my life will be my own. I belong to no one.
“You. Are. MINE.”

Author Pic - Patricia LynnePatricia Lynne never set out to become a writer. In fact, she never considered it an option during high school and college. She was more of an art and band geek. Some stories are meant to be told and now she can’t stop writing. Patricia lives with her husband in Michigan, hopes one day to have what will resemble a small petting zoo and has a fondness for dying her hair the colors of the rainbow.
