Special live giveaway

Tomorrow (Saturday, October 1) I'll be at the Collingswood Book Festival in Collingswood, NJ. And I thought I would do a fun little feature for those wonderful people who come out to live book events. I will have with me an advance copy of my next book, Try Not to Breathe. It doesn't come out until January and won't be on display, but if you find me at the festival and you're the first person to ask for it*, you will get the advance copy. The point of such advance copies is for people to write reviews about them and spread the word, and I hope you will do that--review it on Goodreads or on your blog or Facebook or Google+, pass it on to your local librarian, etc.--but I'm not going to put any specific requirement on that. And if nobody claims the book, it will come back home with me for use in a future giveaway.

Try Not to Breathe: contemporary, YA. In the summer after his suicide attempt, sixteen-year-old Ryan struggles with guilty secrets and befriends a girl who’s visiting psychics to try to reach her dead father.

Hope to see you there!

*Must be at least 13 years old. My fellow authors of the Kidlit Authors Club, who will be appearing at the festival, will not be eligible, to give the general reader a chance.


  1. If I could figure out a way to make my travel superpowers work, I'd love to be there to meet you and snatch that copy out of your hands ^_^ But alas, I'm stuck here on the West Coast. Have fun!

  2. If I see anyone zoom out of a magic portal and whisk the ARC from me, I'll know who it is, Angelina.
