Kirkus, Blurbs, and Free Stuff - heck yeah!

I’ve been sitting on some pretty exciting news for the last couple of weeks, and I finally get to share it!

Reclaimed got its first journal review! From Kirkus! They said its “nature-inspired metaphors add depth” and called it "intriguing." You can read the full review here, but let's just say I am thrilled that they liked it. And still a little in shock. But mostly thrilled.


Blurbs are a nerve-wracking experience. You know someone is reading your book and you pray that they like it and you pray even harder that they like it enough to say so. RECLAIMED was fortunate enough to get blurbs from two AMAZING authors whom I admire and respect.

 

Packed with atmosphere and surprises, Reclaimed is one of those rare books that kept me guessing throughout and inspired an immediate reread.
-Mindi Scott, author of Freefall and Live Through This


RECLAIMED broke my heart, changed my mind, and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.
-Tiffany Schmidt, author of Send Me A Sign

 

So in honor of this exciting news, I’m giving away a copy of Freefall by Mindi Scott and Send me a Sign by Tiffany Schmidt. (Believe me, you want these books. They are both incredible.) I’m also giving away two annotated ARCS of Reclaimed. If you aren’t sure what I mean by annotated, it means I will leave you notes in the margins giving you insider information. It’s sort of like pop-up video for books. (And I just showed my age.)
