Spanish TV Recommendation and HUGE poster!

I got some exciting news today.

LOS INDESEABLES, (the Spanish version of DEVIANTS), was featured on the most important cultural review show in Spain, página 2.

And, a HUGE image of the cover is displayed along the river in Bilbao, with the Guggenheim museum in the background. At first I assumed it was FX, but I'm told the book covers are actually there. (Unless I'm having translation issues in my e-mails with my Spanish editor.)

Here's a snapshot taken from the TV show.

And here is the actual program. Go to approximately minute 20:50.

After my book, the presenter talks about the YA Film WARM BODIES.

This is very cool. Excited...

Compliance Cover Reveal!!

I'm happy to reveal the cover for COMPLIANCE coming out June 4, 2013.

I'll be running a contest next week to celebrate, and have some news about signings and events, so check back!

I think the cover captures the idea of the book really well. And I think the red on navy color scheme is very "now".  At least I keep seeing the color scheme everywhere.

Pre-order Compliance here:

And here is the cover for the Spanish version of DEVIANTS, aka LOS INDESEABLES.

I have to say, I kind of love this cover. The back is cool too. 

You can order the Spanish version here: (sorry, I don't know any other Spanish retailers)

YA Scavenger Hunt! Spring 2013

The Hunt is now over! Thanks for hunting!! 

Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! This tri-annual event was first organized by author Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favorite authors...and a chance to win some awesome prizes! At this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author, you also get a clue for the hunt.

Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize--one lucky winner will receive one signed book from each author on the hunt in my team! (You can also play to win the prize package from the red team too!) 

And... check out my bonus contest at the bottom of the post!

But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 72 hours!

Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are TWO contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the BLUE TEAM--but there is also a red team for a chance to win a whole different set of twenty-five signed books!

If you'd like to find out more about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, and see the full list of prizes up for grabs, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage.


Directions: Below, you'll notice that I've listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the blue team, and then add them up (don't worry, you can use a calculator!). 

Entry Form: Once you've added up all the numbers, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the correct number will qualify.

Rules: Open internationally, anyone below the age of 18 should have a parent or guardian's permission to enter. To be eligible for the grand prize, you must submit the completed entry form by Sunday April 7th, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.


I'm pleased to be hosting, Tara Fuller!

Tara Fuller writes novels. Some about grim reapers​. Some about witches. All of course are delightfully full of teen angst and kissing. Tara grew up in a one stop light town in Oklahoma where once upon a time she stayed up with a flash light reading RL Stine novels and only dreamed of becoming a writer. She has a slight obsession with music and a shameless addiction for zombie fiction, Mystery Science Theater, and black and white mochas. Tara no longer lives in a one stop light town. Now she lives with her family in a slightly larger town in North  Carolina where they have at least three stoplights.

Find out more information about Tara by checking out her website or find more about her latest book BLURRED here!

"Cash is haunted by things. Hungry, hollow things. They only leave him alone when Heaven’s beautiful reaper, Anaya, is around. Cash has always been good with girls, but Anaya isn’t like the others. She’s dead. And with his deteriorating health, Cash might soon be as well.

Anaya never breaks the rules, but the night of the fire, she recognized part of Cash’s soul—and doomed him to something worse than death. Cash’s soul now resides in an expired body, making him a shadow walker, a rare, coveted being that can walk between worlds. A being creatures of the underworld would do anything to get their hands on.

The lines between life and death are blurring, and Anaya and Cash find themselves falling helplessly over the edge. Trapped in a world where the living don’t belong, can Cash make it out alive?"


You lucky hunters get a sneak peek at the prologue from Tara's upcoming release, BLURRED (Kissed by Death #2)!

The exclusive content is no longer available, but check out and pre-order Tara's book BLURRED here.  


Don't forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of signed books by me, Tara Fuller, and more!

To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 33. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the blue team and you'll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!


To keep going on your quest for the hunt, you need to check out the next author! Lisa Burstein!
