Its Layers of Thought’s second book give away! With a story to go along with it.
So here's the scoop - Several weekends ago while everyone was diligently reading for the Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon I went to pick up a signed copy of Dreaming Anastasia at an author signing event here in the valley. I otherwise would have been cheering you on and lurking around on everyone’s blogs.
I had won a signed copy of the book from The Book Butterfly recently and was contacted by Joy – the author. She asked me if I would like to come by and pick up my copy at her local signing. I thought “How fun! I have never done this before and it will be a picture posting opportunity for Layers of Thought”.
In addition, for more fun and excitement, I purchased and had signed a soft bound copy of Dreaming Anastasia for Layers of Thought’s readers to have a chance to win!
Here are the pictures that JD took of Joy and myself at the signing. One which he took of me with Joy is not the best since my mouth is open “goofy like” (serves me right, I was probably bossing him around.) If that's not enough there’s a picture of me with Joy on her author’s blog linked here. Lol – my 2 seconds of fame!
To entice you more about the book, here is some information about Dreaming Anastasia and Joy:
Book Stats from Amazon:
Sixteen year old Anne thinks her life is pretty ordinary – until she smacks into handsome, mysterious, and okay, annoying Ethan on her way to chemistry class. Now Anne has powers she doesn’t understand, a history altering mission she may not want, and a growing attraction to this blue-eyed stranger. And Ethan- who at eighteen made some choices he’s starting to regret – realizes that Anne is the girl for whom he’s been searching – for a very, very long time. Stir in doomed Russian Grand Duchess Anastasia – who is definitely not quite as dead as the history books say – and Baba Yaga, the legendary witch from Russian folklore, and you’ve got DREAMING ANASTASIA, a contemporary YA fantasy that alternates between the voices of Anne, Ethan, and Anastasia as Anne and Ethan join forces to battle the bad guys and save Anastasia. Only problem is – no one’s quite sure who’s really bad and who’s good. And everyone has some secrets.
A YA writer and teacher who grew up in Chicago and now lives in the wilds of Texas. Okay, just the wilds of the Houston suburbs. My debut YA novel, DREAMING ANASTASIA, a contemporary fantasy retelling of Anastasia Romanov's disappearance.
I am currently working on including The Book Depository purchasing links too.
