The Launch of AWESOMENESS - Day 1

Once again I get to wish my best bud success with another launch. Few things make me happier then screaming WOO HOO for Elana Johnson and her books.

Today, I get to SCREAM for SURRENDER. Yep, that's right, today is the official launch day for SURRENDER. And I just couldn't let the day go by without some sort of celebration...
so, I am doing a couple of things. Be sure to read the WHOLE post so you can get in on the giveaways...

First, I am bringing each of the main characters from the series to you in a very unique way. See, I asked Elana a few "simple" questions - what are the characters' favorite place to visit in our world, what are their fav Olympic sport, and what music/band would they like? Needless to say, Elana wanted to KILL ME. I think her exact words were "What? They don't live in the same world. They don't what Olympics or bands are... Music is forbidden in Freedom... And there's a huge wall around the city. They don't think of travelling or anything like that..."
But, we talked it through and came up with some AWESOME answers inspired by each of the main characters. 


Today I am focusing on Vi. We all know Vi as the angsty, fiesty, somewhat emo-ish heroine from POSSESSION. So, what did Elana tell me about her:

Vi hasn’t had much experience with music, food, sports, or free choice. She’s not sure what she likes and what she doesn’t. She’d order her eggs fifteen different ways until she found the type she liked best. Her mom used to sing old musicals to her, so that’s her music of choice, and she is quite fond of salted almonds. 



In addition to the daily character intros, I am giving away 2 copies of REGRET EVERY DAY (Tuesday through Sat - Leave a blog comment daily to be entered) AND a special grand prize that includes one paperback copy of POSSESSION and one hardback copy of SURRENDER! Told ya it would be AWESOME. Just enter the rafflecopter form below to get your daily entry for the REGRET contest and the giveaway. WOO HOO!!!

And that is NOT ALL - I am also helping celebrate the launch with a bunch of other authors with ANOTHER epic giveaway. Just check it out:

And finally, I'll be participating in Elana's NEVER SURRENDER BLOGFEST next week (In addition to celebrating the release of MEA CULPA). All you have to do is post about a time you didn't surrender to some hard thing in your life. 
Want to get in on the fun and show Elana how much she means to ALL of us? Just sign up for the Blogfest here.


WOO HOO!!! Let's make this launch EPIC!
