BREATHE
by Melanie McCullough
Nov 11, 2011
Life's hard. People make it harder. They tether you to them. Make it difficult to breathe, and damn-near impossible to leave... 
Seventeen year-old Abby Rhoades knows this all too well. Born to a mother who could never love her and who vacillates between a sloppy drunk and a suicidal maniac, Abby's never had it easy. But Abby can swim. And Abby has a plan--win the state championship, earn a free ride to Penn State, and leave her small town and suffocating mother behind. 
But then the body of Tom Ford, her mother's latest boyfriend and a man Abby adored, washes up along the shore of the Susquehanna River. His injuries suggest murder and suspicion quickly falls on Abby then on her best friend Garrett Scott, both of whom saw Tom the night he died. 
They both know what happened that night, but neither one is talking. There's too much at stake and the truth could tear them apart.

PIGMENTS OF MY IMAGINATION
by Angela Kulig
pub: Nov 11, 2011
From the moment Lucia steps into Bayside Art Academy, she is fed a steady stream of lies, but it’s not until she meets Michael that she begins to question the people she trusts. Unraveling fact from fabrication seems impossible until Lucia finds her first painting, and discovers the dead do not lie--at least not to her. 
A dozen lifetimes ago, Lucia started a war. Not a war with armies or guns, but a bloody war nonetheless. The path leading Lucia to the truth is hidden within lovely art that spans the ages. In this life, however, Lucia doesn't know where to look. Lost, she turns to the one thing she knows with certainty--she is in love with Leo, and has been before.
BOUND
by CK Bryant
Nov 11, 2011
When a photo shoot ends in tragedy, Kira discovers her best friend, Lydia, has been keeping a secret. Knowing the truth, and accepting it, will change Kira’s life forever and thrust her into a world of ancient curses, magical objects, and savage enemies. What happens next will challenge everything Kira knows about her world, herself and the shape-shifting warrior she’s falling in love with. No longer the timid mouse her mother accused her of being, but a woman who finds the mental and physical strength to endure and survive. 
BOUND is a heroic tale of true friendship, infinite sacrifice and untamed love.
BECOME
by Ali Cross
Nov 11, 2012
Sixteen-year old Desolation Black wants nothing more than to stay in Hell where it’s cold and lonely and totally predictable. Instead, she’s sent back to Earth where she must face the evil she despises and the good she always feared. 
When Desi is forced to embrace her inner demon, she assumes her choice has been made—that she has no hope of being anything other than what her father, Lucifer, has created her to be. What she doesn’t count on, is finding a reason to change—something she’s never had before—a friend.

UNTRACEABLE
by SR Johannes
Nov 29, 2011
16 year old Grace was reared in the wilderness. Her first pet was a bear named Simon. Her first potty, an oak tree. And, her first swing, a forest vine. Grace has lived in the Smokies her whole life, patrolling with her forest ranger father who taught her everything he knew about wildlife, tracking, and wilderness survival. But when Grace's dad goes missing on a routine patrol, unlike everyone in her sleepy mountain town, she refuses to believe he’s dead. When a Cheetos bag and stolen government file materialize, Grace is convinced she’s one step closer to proving all the non-believers wrong. 
Then one day while out tracking clues, Grace is rescued from imminent danger by Mo, a hot guy with an intoxicating accent, that’s definitely not from her neck of the woods, and a secret. Grace has never felt a connection like this before, certainly not with her ex-boyfriend, the adoring, but decidedly unrugged Wyn. 
Now with renewed confidence, Grace travels deeper into the wilderness that has always been her refuge only to learn that her father's disappearance is not a mere coincidence. Soon she’s enmeshed in a web of conspiracy, deception, and murder. And it’s going to take a lot more than a compass and a motorcycle (named Lucifer) for this kick-butting heroine to emerge from an epidemic that’s spreading like wild fire, threatening everything and everyone she’s ever loved. 
What are you waiting for?

Waiting on Wednesday: 5 Hot Upcoming YA Releases10/19/11


WoW is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine and showcases upcoming releases we're dying to read - Hot upcoming books to droll over!


THE TREACHERY OF BEAUTIFUL THINGS
by Ruth Frances Long
pub: Aug 2012
The trees swallowed her brother whole. And Jenny was there to see it. Years later, when she returns to the woods where Tom was taken to say good-bye at last, she finds herself lured into a world where stunning beauty masks the most treacherous of evils, and strange and dangerous creatures await—creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with allegiances that shift as much as his moods. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack’s help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where nothing is what it seems, no one is who they say, and she’s faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice—and not just her own.
INSIGNIA
by S.J. Kincaid
pub: July 2012
IT'S WORLD WAR III. THE ENEMY IS WINNING. WHAT IF THE GOVERNMENT'S SECRET WEAPON IS YOU? 
More than anything, Tom Raines wants to be important, though his shadowy life is anything but that. For years, Tom’s drifted from casino to casino with his unlucky gambler of a dad, gaming for their survival. Keeping a roof over their heads depends on a careful combination of skill, luck, con artistry, and staying invisible. 
Then one day, Tom stops being invisible. Someone’s been watching his virtual-reality prowess, and he’s offered the incredible—a place at the Pentagonal Spire, an elite military academy. There, Tom’s instincts for combat will be put to the test, and if he passes, he’ll become a member of the Intrasolar Forces, helping to lead his country to victory in World War Three. Finally, he’ll be someone important: a superhuman war machine with the tech skills that every virtual-reality warrior dreams of. Life at the Spire holds everything that Tom’s always wanted—friends, the possibility of a girlfriend, and a life where his every action matters—but what will it cost him? 
Gripping and provocative, S. J. Kincaid’s futuristic thrill ride of a debut crackles with memorable characters, tremendous wit, and a vision of the future that asks startling, timely questions about the melding of humanity and technology.
THE ALCHEMY OF FOREVER
by Avery Williams
pub: Jan 3, 2012
Seraphina’s first love made her immortal…her second might get her killed.Incarnation is a new series that introduces a fresh mythology perfect for fans of bestselling series like The Immortals by Alyson Noel and Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.After spending six hundred years on earth, Seraphina Ames has seen it all. Eternal life provides her with the world’s riches, but at a very high price: innocent lives. Centuries ago, her boyfriend, Cyrus, discovered a method of alchemy that allows them to swap bodies with other humans, jumping from one vessel to the next, taking the human’s life in the process. No longer able to bear the guilt of what she’s done, Sera escapes from Cyrus and vows to never kill again.
Then sixteen-year-old Kailey Morgan gets into a horrific car accident right in front of her, and Sera accidentally takes over her body. For the first time, Sera finds herself enjoying the life of the person she’s inhabiting—and falls for the human boy who lives next door. But Cyrus will stop at nothing until she’s his again, and every moment she stays, she’s putting herself and the people she’s grown to care for in great danger. Will Sera have to give up the one thing that’s eluded her for centuries: true love?
EXTRANORMAL
by Suze Reese
pub: Jan 2012
Mira Johns is pretty much like any other teenage girl. Except that she knows how to harness electro-magnetic energy to communicate without words. And she's really, really far from home. Her assignment as an emissary to Earth sounds fairly simple: blend in, observe, and stay away from the planet’s primitive males. But after she finds one mysterious boy too irresistible for stupid rules, she realizes the real reason she's supposed to keep her distance: mates from her world can die if separated. But a series of serious accidents make it clear that someone wants to force her return. Mira decides her only hope is to uncover the truth to why she, the most mediocre of candidates, was actually chosen for this assignment—before the agency discovers her secret and sends her back home.
NIGHT SCHOOL
by CJ Daugherty

Allie Sheridan's world is falling apart. She hates her school. Her brother has run away from home. And she's just been arrested. 
Again. 
This time her parents have finally had enough. They cut her off from her friends and send her away to a boarding school for problem teenagers. 
But Cimmeria Academy is no ordinary school. Its rules are strangely archaic. It allows no computers or phones. Its students are an odd mixture of the gifted, the tough and the privileged. And then there's the secretive Night School, whose activities other students are forbidden even to watch. 
When Allie is attacked one night the incident sets off a chain of events leading to the violent death of a girl at the summer ball. As the school begins to seem like a very dangerous place, Allie must learn who she can trust. And what's really going on at Cimmeria Academy.

What are you waiting for?

Author Interview & Giveaway: Mary Lindsey - SHATTERED SOULS



Please welcome debut author of SHATTERED SOULS, the lovely Mary Lindsey who has joined us for an interview and then added a fantastic giveaway. But more on that later. We met Mary before she was a best-selling author, so we are thrilled for her success and honored that she is visiting here today. Now read on for the awesome that is Mary!
_______________________________________________

1) If you were Lenzi's mom and knew about her power to talk to and help lost souls, how would you handle it and what advice would you give her? 
Being a mother of teens, this is a hard question because I want what is best for them and I have a strong desire to keep them safe. What would I do? I’d do whatever It takes to facilitate her success as a Speaker. It’s a calling much higher than school or homework, right? My advice would be what my dad told me my entire life before he died: “There is nothing you cannot do if you really want it. Just be sure you want something worth doing.”

2) What's your favorite line and/or scene from SHATTERED SOULS? One of my favorite lines: “Should I shake his hand or kiss him goodnight on the cheek? Maybe I should just act like Spook and lick his face.” (Spook is Alden’s dog.)

My favorite scene is the one in which they soul-share for the first time. Although it is very different now, it was the first scene I wrote. 

3) If you had Lenzi's power, what "lost soul" (real historical figure, or fictional character) would you want to help? 
Edgar Allan Poe. My current project is based on his poem, “Annabel Lee,” and has entailed a lot of research including several biographies on Poe’s life. He would be the perfect candidate for an intercession. 

4) Forbidden romance is a key element in Shattered Souls. Who are your favorite forbidden romance literary couples? Romeo and Juliet, Catherine and Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights, and my all-time favorite forbidden romance couple, Meghann and Father Ralph de Bricassart from The Thornbirds.

5) You're trapped and alone in your river house on the island when the zombie apocalypse hits. The monsters emerge from the water and surround the house. You desperately search for a weapon but find only a Pillsbury dough container with a Post-It note that says "Open me if you want to live!" Screaming in terror, you bravely slam it on the corner of the table. POP! Materializing from a doughy purple mist are Mark Twain and Edgar Allan Poe who explain that instead of fighting to a bloody death, you can vaporize the zombies and save the world by collaborating on a YA novel. What is the title and tag line for the book you three come up with? 

The title is THE CELEBRATED JUMPING FROG OF THE HOUSE OF USHER

I (Mary) will award a choice of ARCs to a commenter who leaves a tag line for this book. The winner may choose from Legend, by Marie Lu or Tempest by Julie Cross. 


I can’t wait to see what folks come up with! Thanks for having me on your blog today. 
_________________________________________

Oh, Mary you are generous, and fiendishly clever! All right everyone, kick that left-brain into gear and jump start those creative juices!
 Leave your tag line for Mary's title and your email address in the comments. Deadline is Oct 31. 
We're chomping at the bit to see your imagination at work!  




Follow Mary's Teen Book Scene Blog Tour.

SHATTERED SOULS 
author: Mary Lindsey
pub: Dec 8, 2011

Lenzi hears voices and has visions - gravestones, floods, a boy with steel gray eyes. Her boyfriend, Zak, can't help, and everything keeps getting louder and more intense. Then Lenzi meets Alden, the boy from her dreams, who reveals that she's a reincarnated Speaker - someone who can talk to and help lost souls - and that he has been her Protector for centuries.
Now Lenzi must choose between her life with Zak and the life she is destined to lead with Alden. But time is running out: a malevolent spirit is out to destroy Lenzi, and he will kill her if she doesn't make a decision soon.

Book Review: FOUNDER by L.M. Long +Giveaway



Title: FOUNDER
Author: L.M. Long
Website/Goodreads
They've been waiting for decades. Hidden deep in the Amazon. Financed by thousands. A colony called Founder. And one girl is about to unravel it all. 
The first few chapters are completely confusing but in a good way. It's like those movies where you see snippets of what's happening to different characters, and it all seems totally unrelated but you know it's all going to jell together somehow. And it does.  

I hadn't a clue where this was going and it was such a fascinating reveal when I finally got it. If you've read some reviews that explain the premise, you'll know what I'm talking about, but for those who haven't I won't spoil it. Suffice it to say it melds the world's wartime past into the present.


It's written from two points of view - Marta, a teen girl in a remote Amazon village, and Lara, a young American woman who ends up traveling to the village with her family. Two gutsy, smart, admirable heroines who speak from extremely different perspectives and cultural backgrounds. 


FOUNDER's solid cast of secondary characters easily grow on you, but be prepared for some heart-breaking loss along the way. There's no language or sex but you will find violence and mankind's horrifying behavior, along with some uplifting testimony to the beauty of the human spirit.


I know I'm not giving you much specifics to go on, but I don't want to spoil the discovery of the main plot line. There's no paranormal aspect, just an intense, intriguing grab-bag of history, mystery, danger, revolution, psychological manipulation, and flat out Coo-Coo-for-Cocoa-Puffs crazies.


An engaging, thought-provoking adventure, and considering that it's loosely based on true events, at times a downright chilling tale. 


Enter below to win a paperback copy, but keep in mind that last I checked FOUNDER is available on Amazon Kindle for $1.49. What a bargain!




And next month the sequel, HERITAGE, will be available!

Author Interview: Stasia Ward Kehoe - AUDITION



We love author interviews and today is no exception! Please welcome Stasia Ward Kehoe, author of AUDITION! Stasia has an extensive background in dance which is why she has the chops for this dance-themed drama! 
________________________

1) Sara has to make a some serious life choices in AUDITION. As a mom, what advice would you give her?

As I hear from folks who have read the arc of Audition, I've discovered that it resonates with moms whose kids who are very committed to an art or sport.  They are proud and want to be supportive, but often they are unfamiliar with the level of commitment and the world into which their child has entered.  Sometimes, the parent doesn't know how to advise the kid.  That was something I was trying to get across in the Audition.  I also think a tough thing about Sara is that she is afraid to admit her worries--to be open to conversation.  As a mom of four myself, I know that it is difficult to give advice to someone who hasn't asked for it.  I have one son who is a pretty serious actor--he's done tons of plays and auditioned for movies and all that--and I always want to make sure that he is the one in the "driver's seat" of this dream and not me. I also want him to be safe.  I think my advice would really be more for the mom than for Sara and that would be to visit more often and know the people who are spending time with your daughter.

2) What is your favorite line or scene in AUDITION?
I think the most powerful line is when Rem tells Sara that the dance he choreographed with her is not her dance.  In terms of enjoyment, I loved writing about specific dance moves and pieces of choreography.

3) Having the male love interest be several years older than the teen female protagonist is somewhat unusual in contemporary YA. How did you come to that decision? 
I wanted to write a realistic story and I thought that a teenage choreography prodigy felt a little bit unbelievable.  Honestly, though, older love interests aren't particularly novel in fiction.  Consider Lydia Bennett & Mr. Wyckham in Pride & Prejudice, or a certain rather senior vampire who romances a dark-haired high school girl on page and screen!  Twilight wouldn't work if Edward were an ordinary teen-aged teen.  Neither would Audition work, I think, if Rem were just a senior or something.  The story needs to be the story.


4) What is the most surprising thing we would find in your purse?
I've always got a baggie full of matchbox cars for my youngest son to play with--and I carry Tic-Tacs because I'm a coffee drinker but I like to have minty breath. I guess I'm not all that surprising, purse-wise.


5) What YA novel do you think would make a fun musical and who would you cast in the lead roles? 
This is a more of middle grade, but I think Selling Hope by Kristen O'Donnell Tubb would make a fantastic musical with its vaudeville references and the big splashy party at the end.  In the interest of strong singers with younger looks, I'd cast Miranda Cosgrove as Hopeful and Zac Efron as a young Buster Keaton, though maybe he's a bit too old.  Of course, there's always the Biebs.  Definitely a modern-day vaudeville type!

Thanks so much for having me here today!
__________________________

That does sound like a fun musical! And great mom-advice - being there and interested is so important! Edward was older? We thought he was just seventeen...for a while.


Thanks for the fantastic interview, and for more on this great author, visit Stasia's website!



Title: AUDITION
Author: Stasia Ward Kehoe
release: Oct 13, 2011
genre: Teen Fiction, Contemporary, Dance

When high school junior Sara wins a coveted scholarship to study ballet, she must sacrifice everything for her new life as a professional dancer-in-training. Living in a strange city with a host family, she's deeply lonely-until she falls into the arms of Remington, a choreographer in his early twenties. At first, she loves being Rem's muse, but as she discovers a surprising passion for writing, she begins to question whether she's chosen the right path. Is Rem using her, or is it the other way around? And is dancing still her dream, or does she need something more? This debut novel in verse is as intense and romantic as it is eloquent.

Book Review: ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD by Kendare Blake +Giveaway

ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD
by Kendare Blake
genre: Paranormal, Horror, Ghosts
Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.
So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn't expect anything outside of the ordinary: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.
But she, for whatever reason, spares Cas's life.

ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD dives right into the action and rarely slows down. The fight scenes are exciting, and Kendare Blake doesn't hold back on the gory details - not over-the-top but just enough to give you a terrific visual.


Male protagonists are always a nice change of pace and Cas is a great guy. Hardworking ghost hunter, loving son, and loyal friend. A bit tortured because of his dad's brutal death. Cas' mom is a witch that helps with his work and tries to not be overly protective, but it's tough line to walk. How delightfully refreshing to see a healthy, loving, and authentic parent/child rapport.


My biggest surprise was that I adored Anna. Yes, she's a nasty killer but she's a...complicated ghost. I couldn't wait to uncover the mystery surrounding her death - shocking and horrible stuff, by the way - and it was brilliant how she became a sympathetic and beloved character despite her homicidal tendencies. She's somehow both villain and savior.


The plot hums along, tension mounts and mysteries unfold with plenty of twists and surprising turns. It's horror with a bit of love story, intriguing characters, and nasty bad guys coming out of nowhere to wreak havoc.


There's enough language and violence to suggest that it might be best for older teens. Despite the graphic nature, I wasn't overly creeped out - or grossed out, for that matter - but I was definitely entertained. We'll call it horror-light. Fans of the TV show, Supernatural, will love this excellent ghost story!

Author Interview & Giveaway: Rachel Vincent - IF I DIE


Please welcome IF I DIE author, Rachel Vincent. Her wildly popular SOUL SCREAMERS series never disappoints, and we're thrilled to have her today for an interview as part of her Kismet blog tour.

_______________________________________

1- When you first started writing the Soul Screamers series, did you realize Tod would become such a huge fan favorite? What do you think makes him so appealing?
I didn’t really give it much thought, at first. I knew he was one of my favorites, though. I think it’s his sense of humor that makes him a fan favorite. He gets the most interview requests of any character I’ve ever written. I think people just want to hear what he’ll say next.
Although…he’s kinda hot too, and that never hurts. ;)


2- What kind of mystery would throw together Kaylee from SOUL SCREAMERS and Faythe from SHIFTERS and how would they get along?
Well, they live in completely different worlds, so they’d never meet. But if those worlds were to collide… I’m thinking that Kaylee and crew might help save the life of a werecat in Faythe’s pride, and their fates would be tangled for at least the length of the book. But they’d both be in for a shock. Kaylee’s world isn’t as physically violent as Faythe’s, and she couldn’t hold her own in a fight for very long. But Faythe’s never seen anything like the Netherworld and hellions. They’d need each other to survive.

3- We love your multi-layered females. What qualities do you and your main characters share?
Um…I have a bit of a mouth, and I tend to root for the underdog. I’m also pretty stubborn. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions. ;)


4- You could travel anywhere - real or imagined - and in any time or era, where would you go?
I’ve never been outside of the US, so I’d love to see Europe. Venice and Paris in particular. I’m not picky about time periods. But not during the plague, or any of the conquests. ;)


5- Normandy, 1941, you're lifted by the collar of your shirt by Academy Award Winner Tom Hanks. "You think this is some kind of game? On you're feet soldier, those zombies aren't going to kill themselves!" He hands you a banana. Suddenly a giant screeching seagull with the face of Tom Cruise picks up Tom Hanks and carries him off into the distance. Double suddenly, silence. You look dramatically over your shoulder to see a hoard of Zombie 80's metal roadies staring silently - and dramatically - at you. Weilding only sacks of squirming porcupines along with your banana, a small corkboard, a broken light bulb, and the hat of a Canadian Mountie, how do you survive?
Wake up. And stop eating sausage before bed.


Jake and Alyssa after the "signing"
6- Have you ever been to a book signing - at Vromans in Pasadena last year on the Smart Chicks Tour - and signed the chiseled abs of a man...nay, a walking god, reminiscent of the all-mighty Zeus, exuding a masculine yet tender aura encapsulating all those around him in a sensual haze?
Ha! In fact, I did sign such a set of abs—after the boy’s mother gave her approval. I believe I was second in a long line of authors that day. ;)

_____________________________________________

Be careful when you go to Venice. We hear they have vampires - although some of them are really hot!  Hercules/Leonardo DiCaprio Jake was glad to hear that you remembered his abs. Maybe Gregory will be next? Thanks for stopping by Rachel! See below for more info on her and the great contests and two chances to win in the If I Die Tour Contest!

About Rachel Vincent -  websiteblogtwitterfacebookyoutubeA resident of San Antonio, Rachel Vincent has a BA in English and an overactive imagination, and consistently finds the latter to be more practical. She shares her workspace with two black cats (Kaci and Nyx) and her # 1 fan. Rachel is older than she looks-seriously-and younger than she feels, but remains convinced that for every day she spends writing, one more day will be added to her lifespan.




The entire school's talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. Everyone except Kaylee Cavanaugh. After all, Kaylee's no ordinary high-school junior. She's a banshee—she screams when someone dies. 
But the next scream might be for Kaylee. 
Yeah—it's a shock to her, too. So to distract herself, Kaylee's going to save every girl in school. Because that hot new teacher is really an incubus who feeds on the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend's needy ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren't quite human, either. 
But Kaylee's borrowed lifeline is nearing its end. And those who care about her will do anything to save her life. 
Anything.
