Excellent. You've come to the right place!  In fact, we'll be giving away three,
yes count 'em,
three prize bags full of awesomeness.
(more on that in a moment) 

Transcendent, Tales of the Paranormal, is a collection of short stories from some of the newest names in YA fiction.     ...and Evan Joseph.
 You can read its blurb and great reviews on goodreads, or in my last post. The ebook is out now, and the hardback will be out in about a week.

(Okay, back to the fun part... Let's give away some prizes!)

Goodie Bag #1:
A hardback copy of POSSESSION by Elana Johnson,
an ecopy of TRANSCENDENT,
and your choice of Sour Patch Kids,
  or (in honor of one of Elana's Favorite foods) Bacon Popcorn!

Goodie Bag #2
A hard copy of TRANSCENDENT,

an ecopy of BECOME by Ali Cross,

an ecopy of BOUND by C.K. Bryant,

And your choice Twizzlers,

or a Symphony bar (C.K.'s favorite treats!)

Holy cow, what a log of swag! I've got my copy and will read it as soon as I finish Karen's book--which I'm loving.

Connie Hall said...

I would love all the goody bags, but #1 is my top choice. Thanks.

Renee Miller said...

What an awesome prize pack, Wendy. Even if I didn't already really want to read Transcendant, Court would kill me if I didn't enter. She says Goody bag #2 by the way.


I shared on FB and Twitter too. If we don't win, I'm sure I'll be ordering all of these books for Court's new ereader that she doesn't know she's getting for Christmas.

"Transcendent" was very well written and it caught and held me captivated from beginning to end. I enjoyed reading these different stories and hearing about some interesting journeys these characters went on. These authors definitely have a talent for bring these characters to life.
I highly recommend this story to anyone looking to spend a day reading some interesting paranormal stories. It's a great way to spend some time getting lost in the paranormal world for a bit.
