LET THE HUNT BEGIN!


*****MEET A.G. HOWARD*****




A.G. Howard is the NYT bestselling author of the Young Adult SPLINTERED Series -- an urbanized gothic Alice in Wonderland spinoff, -- and the upcoming YA Phantom of the Opera spinoff, ROSEBLOOD. 

Now, A.G. brings her darkly magical and visual/visceral storytelling to Victorian England. THE ARCHITECT OF SONG is the first installment in her lush and romantic New Adult “Haunted Hearts Legacy” series, a four book gothic saga following the generations of one family as -- haunted by both literal and figurative ghosts -- they search for self-acceptance, love, and happiness. 


Visit A.G. Howard at her site.

On this leg of the scavenger hunt, the exclusive content is the book trailer and official cover reveal for THE ARCHITECT OF SONG.




A.G. Howard's personal note: Although the lush red dress worn by my heroine, Juliet, on the cover never makes it into the pages of the book (since she's in mourning), it sets the perfect gothic tone for the Victorian era along with the underlying mystery and danger Juliet must confront to first find herself, and in the end, find truth and lasting love.


THE ARCHITECT OF SONG COVER REVEAL!!...

Ever since a childhood tragedy, nineteen-year-old Juliet Emerline has subsisted – isolated by deafness – making hats in the solitude of her home. Now, she’s at risk to lose her sanctuary to Lord Nicolas Thornton, a twenty-seven-year-old mysterious architect with designs on her humble estate. When she secretly witnesses him raging beside a grave, Juliet investigates, finding the name “Hawk” on the headstone and an unusual flower at the base. The moment Juliet touches the petals, a young English nobleman appears in ghostly form, singing a song only her deaf ears can hear. The ghost remembers nothing of his identity or death, other than the one name that haunts his afterlife: Thornton. 

Suspecting the architect played a role in “Hawk’s” untimely demise, Juliet pushes aside her fear of society and travels to Lord Thornton’s secluded holiday resort, posing as a hat maker in one of his boutiques to avenge her ghostly companion and save her estate. There, rumors abound of the architect’s violent tendencies. Yet each moment Juliet spends with Lord Thornton, he’s charming and gentle, even respectful of her deafness. 

She soon finds herself questioning who to trust: the architect of flesh and bones who can relate to her through romantic gestures, heartfelt notes, and sensual touches … or the specter that serenades her with beautiful songs and ardent words, touching her mind and soul like no other man ever can. As the sinister truth behind Lord Thornton’s interest in her estate comes to light, she’s lured into his web of secrets. But it’s too late for escape, and the tragic love taking seed in her heart will alter her silent world forever.

As A.G. Howard's contribution to the wonderful book-package prize for the red team, She's included a Collector's Edition Splintered / Unhinged Flip Arc:


(Contains full Splintered story and one chapter of Unhinged) 


In addition, she's offering up an extra giveaway of her own.

Below are the prizes up for grabs:

1- Hinged antique locket with detailed rose embossing, similar to the necklace that plays an important role in Juliet's story


1- 8" X 11" fine art print signed by Rebecca Sinz, reminiscent of Juliet wearing her mourning weeds in the Winter Garden

1-Signed poster featuring the official ARCHITECT artwork by Nathalia Suellen.


For a shot at these three prizes (three separate winners -- INTL) enter the rafflecopter below.


Good luck on the rest of the hunt, and A.G. Howard looks forward to revealing THE ARCHITECT OF SONG's playlist soon, with more prizes to share! Here's the link in case you want to learn

FIRST SNOW by Bomi Park: Classroom Activity and Review

Dear Kim,


Let it snow!
Let it snow!
Let it snow!

We had fun with Bomi Park's gorgeous FIRST SNOW last week. We used the book as a mentor text to explore personal narratives and poetry.  We also explored watercolor resist techniques. (We also made a mess-- which is kind of my modus operandi during writing workshop. Sorry, Kelley!)

I used the sentence starter from the jacket copy:
Look up. One flake falls, then another. And just like that—it's __ __ __ __ __ __ __ .

The kids worked cooperatively at their table groups to discuss what word might fill in the blank. I love hearing them chat. 
"Well it is a snowflake because 'one flake'." 
Followed by: "No. It has seven letters, snowflake has nine." 
And: "It is an action. A-- what's that called-- a verb because it is something falling." 
Eventually we filled in the blank by using spelling clues to check our thinking, which might not sound like a whole lot of fun, but spelling is awesome and totall…

Book Review: PAX by Sara Pennypacker

Dear Kim,

I am happy to hear that you are feeling better (Baby too.) You and I find common ground in our young adult, even adult, book recommendations. I typically leave Donna to send us recommendations about terrific Middle Grade novels. But, boy oh boy, do I have one for you today.

I need to keep up with the best in Middle Grade fiction in order to engage my small literature group of amazing readers that I meet with at our local elementary school. This school year we've already read Kathy Erskine's Mockingbird and R.J. Palacio's Wonder. Currently we are enjoying Kwame Alexander's The Crossover. When we finish Alexander's novel-in-verse, our next pick is PAX.


Oh, PAX.
I could write a love song about this book.
Hey, that's not a bad idea. The kids might enjoy writing a song about the love between Peter and Pax.




Peter and Pax were best friends. Peter, age twelve, needed a friend like Pax to rise from the lose of his mother. And Pax, well Pax needed Peter too. Pet…
