YASH SPRING 2016 is CLOSED! THANKS FOR PARTICIPATING!! WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON. MY RAFFLECOPTER GIVEAWAY IS ON FOR FEW MORE HOURS!

I’m Joy Preble, your hostess for this stop on the hunt! I’m the author of the DREAMING ANASTASIA series (Sourcebooks) and the SWEET DEAD LIFE series (Soho Press). I’m also the author of FINDING PARIS, a dark mystery/road trip novel (Balzer Bray/Harper Collins) On 5/17/16 comes IT WASN’T ALWAYS LIKE THIS, a wildly romantic story with the quick pitch of Tuck Everlasting meets Veronica Mars! (think: accidental immortality, star-crossed romance and murder mystery!)
I will give you an extra special chance at the bottom of this post to win some of my books!!




And as promised, here is my own extra bonus giveaway!! It is for domestic U.S. readers only because of shipping costs. But hang in there the rest of you, because when IT WASN’T ALWAYS LIKE THIS comes out in May, I will be doing a broader set of giveaways.

Brygitt said...

I’ll be honest, the first thing that caught my eye was the book cover. I know it’s whats on the inside that matters, but if the cover is good looking, I’m way more likely to pick up the book and read the back to see if it catches my interest. And this book sure does sound interesting!

Kira said...

I've already found 30 new books that I can't wait to read!

This is my first time doing YASH, and it's just been so great. I've had fun reading author posts and also searching for the numbers. I like that it is a real hunt sometimes, though the longer it goes on, I do also appreciate authors who say, "my favorite number is." ;) Thanks for being part of my first YASH experience!

Liezl N. said...

I don't know which one's first. Is it because I love reading that I love books or is it because I love books because I love reading. Well, either way, one thing's for sure, i do love both. The very reason why I join YASH for 2 years now. And it wouldn't be possible without such kind and awesome authors. So, thank you.❤

Thanks for the great post and the cool extra content! I love going to these scavenger hunts because you get introduced to a lot more books and authors, and if I ever want a new read, this is perfect way to get a sample of a lot of different genres and authors for that next great read! I also love getting reminded of trilogies or series that I loved but never finished to get me back on that train. Thanks!
