Heidi Ayarbe: Author Vlog Interview & Giveaway!




We have a delightful video interview from COMPULSION author Heidi Ayarbe as part of her tour through TEEN BOOK SCENE




We're big soccer fans so we love Heidi's soccer star picks for a Zombified World Domination Soccer Team. And we're so jealous of her husband!


Thank you, Heidi for putting together the interview!  COMPULSION is released May 3 and we'll have our review on May 7. You can also check out Heidi's other novels, COMPROMISED and FREEZE FRAME.

She's also been kind enough to offer a signed copy of COMPULSION! Just fill out the form below. Tomorrow Heidi will be visiting Nancy @ A Musing Reviews!

Today has to be perfect. Magic.

I look at the clock. 10:14 am.

Ten fourteen. One plus one is two plus four is six plus ten is sixteen minus one is fifteen minus two is thirteen. OK.

I turn from the clock and walk into the hallway. "Ready.”

Saturday will be the third state soccer championship in a row for Jake Martin. Three. A good number. Prime. With Jake on the field, Carson City High can’t lose, because Jake has the magic: a self-created protection generated by his obsession with prime numbers. It’s the magic that has every top soccer university recruiting Jake, the magic that keeps his family safe, and the magic that suppresses his anxiety attacks. But the magic is Jake’s prison, because getting it means his compulsions take over nearly every aspect of his life.
Jake’s convinced the magic will be permanent after Saturday, the perfect day, when every prime has converged. Once the game is over, he won’t have to rely on his sister, Kasey, to concoct excuses for his odd rituals. His dad will stop treating him like he is some freak. Maybe he’ll even make a friend other than Luc.
But what if it doesn’t work? What if the numbers never go away?

GIVEAWAY DETAILS:
  • Fill out the form below
  • Open to US and Canada
  • Winner will sent their copy in mid-May
  • Enter by April 27

What a fun vlog! This also sounds interesting. Haven't seen a book with anxiety disorders before. Hm...

Great interview for a first time vlogger! Ms. Heidi did a wonderful job.

I think it is easy for people who don't have anxiety disorders to misunderstand and get frustrated wiht those that do. I've seen a lot of 'get over' it attitudes.

Zombies and soccer huh?! Yes, you will win!

Thanks so much for the giveaway.

I looked up the scorpion on YouTube, I don't watch soccer so I'd never heard of it. Fans must have loved it.
Thanks for the fun interview and the giveaway.

It was so great to get to watch this. A fun tour stop! The soccer part was hilarious, and I also loved to hear about the inspiration and ideas that went into Compulsion. I thought it was a very realistic portrayal of what someone with OCD goes through. I also loved hearing about the writing/editing dynamic as well.
