Spring Blog Carnival!

Pure Imagination

Hosted by Angela from Reading Angel, Candace from Candace’s Book Blog, Mary from The Book Swarm, and Lori from Pure imagination.

This party is basically a giveaway hop, but it’s going to be so much more than that!

Now for the Carnival Part.  During the giveaway hop different blogs will be hosting booths.  Each booth will have a fun challenge for you to do to enter their giveaway!

  • Lori has the Kissing Booth and will be giving away Romance books.
  • Angela has the Haunted House and will be giving away Paranormal books
  • Mary has Rollercoasters and will be giving away a contemporary book.
  • Candace has the Food Court and will be giving away Giftcards (or books of winners choice).
  • Reading Teen has the Fortune Tellers Booth and will be giving away Witch Books.


Well, this month marks the one-year anniversary of the publication of The Angel, and what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway? Yes, you guessed it, I’m going to be giving away one signed copy of The Angel at the close of this wonderful Spring Blog Carnival – May 8th.

For those of you who stumbled here just for the Carnival, here’s a little bit about the book:

Official Description:

Seth Salvadore-Knight knew that his family wasn’t exactly “normal,” but he didn’t think his life was really all that different from other seventeen-year-olds’. There were no unusual difficulties in his life, just the average problems all teenagers experienced. That was, until he and his family moved to the town of Madison. Almost instantly the hatred began to show, through violent attacks against him, his family, and his friends. It is this violence, this hatred, that will forever change his life and the lives of those closest to him.

Alternative Description:

From his very first day at Madison High School, Seth is a witness to Brian’s relentless bullying.

And from the beginning he sets out to protect the bully’s victims.

But when Brian starts attacking Seth’s friends, it gets personal.

Then Brian learns about Seth’s gay parents.

That’s when all hell breaks loose.

The final showdown will leave blood in the rain, shots echoing through the night, and lives in tatters…

If you wish to enter the giveaway, please just leave a comment with your name and e-mail address! (WordPress doesn’t let me embed forms using GoogleDocs. Why didn’t I go with Blogger?) USA only, please.

Oh, and I almost forgot! Also, in celebration of the one-year anniversary of The Angel, the Kindle e-book will be on sale for just $0.99, today through May 31st! So if you don’t win the giveaway and still want to read the book, you will be able to get an e-copy super cheap.
