Welcome to Red Tash, talking about her new book!
When an ancient, deeply troubled entity identifies quirky Christine Grace as his latest threat, all hell breaks loose in the urban forest of Indiana University’s Dunn Woods. Will Christine piece together his destructive plan in time to save herself? And what exactly is going on with this peculiar star, Stella Mirabilis?
This fast-paced story moves quickly from character to character, introducing us to the headspace of not just Christine and the monster Greachin, but also to Tom, her devoted boyfriend, and Richard, an aging physicist interested in the time-traveling star overhead. Along the way, singing street people, cosplaying environmental activists, and heaven-sent beings come to populate the unique cityscape of Bloomington, IN, where encountering the bizarre is an everyday experience.
It’s taken me a few years to release my first book, so it’s a big deal! Since Halloween is approaching, and my spunky female protagonist’s birthday happens to fall on October 31, I figured “Why not host a Halloween Trick or Treat Bash on my blog?” So that’s what I’m doing. Christine would be honored, I’m sure. You don’t even have to dress up (although costumes are always encouraged in my world.)
To celebrate, I’m giving away a few prizes. They’re good ones, too. You could win an Amazon gift card, or even a new Kindle! (Too cool, huh?)
That’s right, grand prize will be an Amazon Kindle. It’ll be the 3G with special offers version, same as I’m getting. (One for you, one for me! Isn’t that how you divide the goodie bag after you trick or treat?) Not only will you get a Kindle, but you’ll also receive a free copy of my book, and I’ve had a lot of author friends chime in and donate copies of their books, as well!
It’s a virtual Trick or Treat bag of Halloween awesomeness—we’re talking ghost stories, zombies, vampires, and other fantasy adventures. You’re going to be up all night reading until the New Year and beyond, with all the great stories you’ll be downloading for FREE. (Read on to learn all about my fantastic author friends, and earn entries by visiting their websites.)
Second prize will be an Amazon gift card for $25 and a free copy of This Brilliant Darkness. w00t!
Third prize? A ten dollar Amazon gift card. That’s totally worth it, isn’t it? Oh, yeah, you can have a free copy of TBD, as well, if you’d like. Why not?
The best news is that you don’t just get one entry. You can enter as many times as you’d like, between now and the deadline. I want to get your Kindle to you before Halloween, so the deadline for entries will be October 16, 2011. Amazon shouldn’t need more than two weeks to ship a Kindle, should they? Let’s cross our fingers and steer clear of black cats, just in case.
