Contest: Shadowed Summer

Winner of Prophecy of the Sisters is Amber!

« Saundra Mitchell's Pub Story thataway.

Now, for the giveaway of one signed, hardcover copy of Shadowed Summer, Saundra's debut novel!

Nothing ever happened in Ondine, Louisiana, not even the summer Elijah Landry disappeared.

His mother knew he ascended to heaven, the police believed he ran away, and his girlfriend thought he was murdered.

Decades later, certain she saw his ghost in the town cemetery, fourteen-year-old Iris Rhame is determined to find out the truth behind "The Incident With the Landry Boy."

Enlisting the help of her best friend Collette, and forced to endure the company of Collette's latest crush, Ben, Iris spends a summer digging into the past and stirring old ghosts, in search of a boy she never knew.

What she doesn't realize is that in a town as small as Ondine, every secret is a family secret.

Wow, I really want this one!

Earlier today, I already linked to all the pub stories, including Saundra's: http://bethrevis.blogspot.com/2009/05/check-this-out.html


And now I've added the contest to my main page (bethrevis.blogspot.com)

*crosses fingers and wishes* this one really does look good, and I think her pub story was my favorite!

I have link to Mitchell's Pub Story from my Noteworthy post, http://reviewerx.blogspot.com/2009/05/contest-shadowed-summer.html.

In addition, I have a link to this contest from my sidebar and soon from the updated contest list. http://ajourneyofbooks.blogspot.com

I loved Mitchell's story. It's sad to think how many great authors may not get their work out there because of discouragement.

Definitely sounds like something I might enjoy! I like your pub story feature, by the way. Neat way to let all of us who have yet to publish a novel see what people who made it had to go through.

Now for boring stuff:
I blogged about this giveaway and Saundra's pub story here: http://wisb.blogspot.com/2009/05/sff-links-sorta-bimonthly-may-batch.html

Thanks!

Hey! For some reason, this embedded comment form makes most people click twice before the comment is processed and published. It's not you - it's just that it's a new Blogger feature with kinks and all that. (But I adore it and don't wanna get rid of it!) I removed Captcha to make the process easier. You don't have to rewrite the comments twice; just click on SUBMIT twice and it should work. If not, email me. Thanks! -Steph
