*****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

INTERVIEW with Juliana Spink Mills, Author of The Blade Hunt Chronicles

Dear Alison and friends,
Today, I am excited. I mean REALLY excited, because well, I got to hangout with my writer buddy Juliana Spink Mills via the modern way: email/twitter/IG/FB. Juliana and I met at the NYSCBWI conference a few years back and have been friends every since. Juliana has been a much better friend to me than I've been to her this past year, but my resolution for 2018 is to rid myself of some of the extra responsibilities (stay tuned for details) and focus on what's really important supporting my community and that includes my writing community and the most important components of my writing community other than my readers are my writer friends.


So Juliana, when did you start writing?
Although I’ve always liked messing around with words, I didn’t start writing ‘for real’ until I turned 40 and told myself to stop procrastinating.
Sounds like 40 was the kick in the ass you needed. I just gave myself a strict deadline to finish my current WIP by January 1st. Deadline…

Dear Kim (and friends),


Today's post is a package within a package within a package.
I bring you a
book review,
interview,
and giveaway,
all wrapped into one post.


On the blog today we welcome Katherine Locke, author, cat wrangler, and YA book advocate. Recently Katherine and I connected on stage at the annual Fall Philly SCBWI Conference. We talked activism, writing, and I fanned all over her new book, The Girl with the Red Balloon.

Prior to Philly, I followed Katherine’s blog, reading her posts about character and writing, and her journey to publication. I also participated in monthly GAY YA (now YA PRIDE) book talks on Twitter where she sometimes moderated, and often participated, I also followed her on Twitter for her insights into this crazy *** world.  Then, just prior to her book's release YA Reads connected us via their 2017 Debut Author Bash so that we could host a giveaway of The Girl With the Red Balloon here. 

I mean, even for me, that's a lot of background, jus…

INTERVIEW WITH K.M. WALTON, YA FEST & HARRY POTTER

Dear Alison and readers, Have I got a surprise for you...Guess who stopped by to chat? Any guesses? No peeking at the title. Wait, I guess it's too late. Okay, I'll tell you anyway, KM Walton, the YA Author of all of these books...




Hi K.M.,

Thanks so much for stopping by to talk to me. Care for a chai latte or a glass of wine? It’s Friday. Let’s go for the wine.
Excellent choice. I’ll have one as well. So tell me, when did you become a writer? Despite my debut novel releasing when I was 44, my stacks of journals from childhood onward prove that I’ve always been a writer.
Yeah, it took me a while to figure out what I really wanted to be when I grew up. The bulging folder filled with scraps of paper and napkins of all my “book” ideas and “story” ideas didn’t make me realize my true calling until six or seven years ago. So tell me, what do you love about writing? Possibility. I’m a wildly anticipatory person, always have been. A dreamer for sure. Writing, with all of its glorious poss…
