Hades Giveaway!

So I'm back from Amsterdam, and I will post about that soon, but first I had to share this awesome opportunity. Yesterday HADES by Alexandra Adornetto released. HADES is the sequel to HALO. Check out the trailer!

More about HADES:

Heaven Help Her.

Bethany Church is an angel sent to Earth to keep dark forces at bay. Falling in love was never part of her mission, but the bond between Beth and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier Woods, is undeniably strong. But even Xavier?s love, and the care of her archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, can?t keep Beth from being tricked into a motorcycle ride that ends up in Hell. There, the demon Jake Thorn bargains for Beth?s release back to Earth. But what he asks of her will destroy her, and quite possibly, her loved ones, as well.

And now, thanks to Zeitghost Media and Macmillan (Hades Publisher) I get to give away copy of HADES to one of my followers!

Merry Fates Contest Poem

So the Merry Sisters of Fate are having a prompt contest over at their brand new website. To enter you have to write something, inspired by their prompt image. This is the image, “The Turret Stairs” by Frederic Burton:

And this is what I wrote:

there is only this

this dark corner
between up

between his

but it is an eternity
of sweet
of breaths like caresses and
gentle thumbs against cheeks

of wordless lips
that speak sonnets

it is
the silent cracks that
through my heart
when he moves past

to the place where
he will one day
become king

while i remain
in fractured pieces
scattered along the ground

Winners are randomly selected, so don't be shy. You could win a signed ARC of THE SCORPIO RACES or THE SPACE BETWEEN or a signed finished copy of BLOOD MAGIC. Contest ends Friday, August 12, at midnight CST so get started! Enter here.

The Lying Game Sneak Peek!

So I was thrilled to discover on Thursday that ABC Family had sent me a surprise copy of Sara Shepard's (author of Pretty Little Liars) new series The Lying Game.

I've been dying to read the book, especially since it was announced that ABC Family was making The Lying Game into a new tv series. Well, my copy of the book had a cryptic message hand-written on the inside. (Seriously, ABC Family is so awesome, they come up with the coolest ideas. I hope one day they make a tv show out of one of my books one day just so I can see what kind of game they come up with for it!)

The inscription read:

"To find the truth, you just need to know where to look."

And okay, yeah it took me a while to figure out it was a clue but when I finally decoded it, I was presented with a search term that lead to a sneak peek of The Lying Game! Check it out:

Ooh, dark and mysterious no?

The Lying Game premieres August 15th at 9pm ET.

Here's the blurb for the book:

Pretty girls don’t play by the rules. They make them.

Abandoned by her mother at age five, Emma Paxton has had a rough life in foster care, always longing for a family of her own. When she discovers Sutton Mercer, the wealthy twin she never knew she had, she leaps at the chance to meet her. But then Sutton disappears. . . .

Mistaking Emma for her sister, Sutton’s friends whisk her away. At first Emma plays along, eager to peek into her twin’s life. Sutton seems to have everything Emma never got—an adoring boyfriend, fiercely loyal friends, and a close-knit family—but as Emma is drawn further into Sutton’s world, she finds that everyone is hiding dark secrets. Worst of all, Sutton may not be coming back—ever.

Now, to find out what happened to her, Emma must keep up the charade. But one wrong move and she could end up missing as well.

Let the Lying Game begin.

Check out the ABC Family website for more info on The Lying Game TV series.

Well, as part of my prize for completing the game, I got the chance to ask Hi Kong Lee, who plays Paul, a question. Here is the video response I got!

My question was: What's your favorite thing about working on the show?
