In Honor of My Pre-Release Jitters: A GIVEAWAY!!!!

It's less than a month now till THE LAST ECHO hits shelves, and I have reached that stage where I'm both nervous AND excited...nerv-cited!!!  On the one hand, I can't wait for you guys to read it, and hopefully love it as much as I do.

But...then there's always that other side of me, the doom-and-gloom side that starts whispering in my ear (in a very Eeyore-like voice): What if no one reads it? What if everyone hates it? What if no one wants to be your friend???

Fortunately, I have tools for dealing with that nasty little voice. Things like chocolate. And shopping.  And, as weird as it sounds...GIVEAWAYS!!!

So in honor of the approaching release date, and the fact that a giant box of these...


just landed on my doorstep, it's giveaway time! (and if you've read an early copy of THE LAST ECHO, you already know why this nail polish is so creeptastically awesome! If not, you'll just have to wait and see.)

Here's the deal:

You'll have through Saturday to Tweet, comment, "Like", and pre-order your way to one of several prizes, three of which include signed ARCs of THE LAST ECHO, nail polish, and swag packs. The other five are THE LAST ECHO swag packs including the nail polish!!!


What do you have to lose? I mean besides the chance to win this one-of-a-kind killer nail polish!!!!



And don't forget to check out my EVENT'S PAGE to see if I'm coming to a city near you :)

Erica said...

I really like Jay - it seems like a lot of people are saying that, but he's such a great guy!

Sophie said...

Favourite character - Violet. Unoriginal, but she's just so great. Brave but also insecure at times, and the way she uses her power is pretty impressive.
Thanks for the giveaway!

ephrielle said...

Jay, I love that he was trying to use jealousy to get the girl and it didn't work too well. They are such a cute couple.

Eleanor Ford said...

My favourite character has to be Jay, I'd love to have a best friend/boyfriend like him who loves every part of me, even the weird stuff!

Leah said...

I really like Violet. She's strong and chooses her own way, even though she has a great guy in Jay, it doesn't define her!

Froze8 said...

Love the cover for you book! I do hope I win so I can try that nail polish!

Alba said...

I love Jay---my secret crush on him is not so secret now.
Why? What's NOT to love about him? But seriously I just really loved him in the first book...it was like love at first...um...'read' hehehe he's completely loyal as a friend! And having him as her BF-Vi-well it's just a plus.

ps. I'm in love with this nail polish, said it on facebook and say it again. It rocks and can't wait to read The Last Echo

s daniels said...

Of Course I love Jay! I love how strong of a protagonist he is. I love the interactions that he has with the other characters especially Violet!

Maria said...

Even though I usually avoid all those clich├ęs... Violet is probably one of the few main female characters that I'm really happy with (and doesn't irritate me so much!) Also... Sheriff Ambrose, for the win!!

Lynnette Scott said...

Jay he's perfect well except his jerktastic move he pulled in last book but hes a guy and he was bound to do something lol but he's smart and is the voice of reason to Violet and the fact that he loves her flaws and all :)

Niki said...

I like Violet most! Her dead-people-finding power is cool and I think she uses it pretty well!!

janicca77 said...

Of course I LOVE Jay, who wouldn't? He's such a great guy! But I really love Violet. I know she can't really help hearing the Echos, but that fact is, she really wants to do the right thing and help those that have been wronged. It is pretty inspiring!
