The YAmazing Race!


Starts Monday, January 16 at noon EST ~ Ends Monday, January 23 at noon EST

Welcome to my blog and the next stop on the YAmazing Race! I hope you are excited about the MGnificent prizes, the crazy whirlwind blog hop featuring over 50 debut authors and prize packs featuring ARCs, gift certificates, swag, and more! I know I am!

You’ve got no clue what the heck I’m talking about?

Well, then head on over to the Apocalypsies website to start from the beginning and read the complete rules. Now on to the race!


Oh, and this is my book:

(UK cover. Look to the right to see the US cover)


3 years, 1 month, 1 week and 6 days since I’d seen daylight. One-fifth of my life. 98,409,602 seconds since the heavy, steel door had fallen shut and sealed us off from the world

Sherry has lived with her family in a sealed bunker since things went wrong up above. But when they run out of food, Sherry and her dad must venture outside. There they find a world of devastation, desolation...and the Weepers: savage, mutant killers.

When Sherry's dad is snatched, she joins forces with gorgeous but troubled Joshua - an Avenger, determined to destroy the Weepers.

But can Sherry keep her family and Joshua safe, when his desire for vengeance threatens them all
.


THE OTHER LIFE releases February 1st in the UK and May 1st in the US!


Maybe you’d like to see the trailer? Here it is:






Oh, and before you go – there’s a bonus contest! I’m giving away a signed ARC of THE OTHER LIFE. Just leave a comment with your email address and you’ll be entered! I’ll announce the winner January 24th. My giveaway is international.

The Other Life looks so awesome and unique! (And not many dystopians these days are that unique, so this is a big deal. I'm giddy with the awesomeness of this synopsis.) Thanks for the giveaway!

BURIED IN BOOKS said...

I was thinking of Shatter Me at first when I was reading about how many days it had been since she'd been outside, but then the rest sounds nothing like it! World War III? Zombie Apocalypse? Plague? Can't wait to read it!

zaraalexis said...

This is very apocalyptic! And the trailer was eerie and enticing both at the same time. I also love the cover design of the red butterfly. I wouldn't have noticed the imprint images of the people on the wings if it wasn't for the book trailer. Cool! I'd LOVE to win the ARC for my book collection. Yay for YAmazing Race!
