Release Crazed!

From Previous Post (it wasn't up long enough so I'm posting it again)

I have done something extremely careless, readers, and I owe an apology to Pen to Paper. I link up every week to the "Wishlist Wednesday" that this blog features. Up until recently I have posted all the necessary things to adhere to the rules of the meme. However, lately my brain has been out on a little vacation and I haven't been posting the proper information required to participate in the meme.

I absolutely apologize for this and if the owner will allow me participate then I will not forget to do this again.

I can promise that I was not trying to step on anyone's toes and didn't even think about what it looked like when I linked up at a meme that directed others to my own meme without mentioning the other. Now that I think back on it, it's so obvious that I feel quite like a fool and I can not apologize enough.

Howdy my little moonbeams!

It's Thursday and I'm still getting back into the swing of things. Still no internet connection at the chateau. I'm hogging the internet at work to get this written up.

Just a few announcements:

The WINNER of the PUZZLE TITLE Giveaway is ANGELINA N.  Congrats! The answer to the Puzzle was "Fire and Hemlock" by Diana Wynne Jones.

Alright. Now the MANGA SERIES giveaway and the PLEDGED giveaway both end in a few days. Once those are over and all of my previous giveaway prizes have been sent out then I'll be starting a new group of giveaways for September and the fall season.

Title: Pulse
Author: Patrick Carman

Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: February 26, 20013
Pages: 320

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Patrick Carman, a teen fantasy-adventure of epic proportions. In 2051, some teens have a “pulse,” the power to move objects with their minds. Compulsively readable, with thrilling action scenes and a tender love story.

The year is 2051, and the world is still recognizable. With the help of her mysterious classmate Dylan Gilmore, Faith Daniels discovers that she can move objects with her mind. This telekinetic ability is called a “pulse,” and Dylan has the talent, too.

In riveting action scenes, Faith demonstrates her ability to use her pulse against a group of telekinesis masters so powerful they will flatten their enemies by uprooting street lights, moving boulders, and changing the course of a hurtling hammer so that it becomes a deadly weapon. But even with great talent, the mind—and the heart—can be difficult to control. If Faith wants to join forces with Dylan and save the world, she’ll have to harness the power of both.

Patrick Carman’s Pulse trilogy is a stunning, action-filled triumph about the power of the mind—and the power of love.

Avery and Ben are just beginning to explore the depth of the bond that links them.

But even such a perfect bond can be strained by jealousy, and when Hope, a gorgeous girl from Ben's old life, arrives in town, Avery can't help but feel threatened. And in more ways than one-because someone is trying to kill her, again. Also new in town are a pair of Hunters-men who know about werewolves and who seek only to destroy what they can't understand. Hope is connected to the Hunters somehow, but by the time Avery figures out her secret, it's too late-and someone will pay with their life.

Title: Iron Hearted Violet
Author: Kelly Barnhill

Genre: Middlegrade Fantasy
Release Date: October 9, 2012
Pages: 432

Synopsis: 

The end of their world begins with a story.
This one.


In most fairy tales, princesses are beautiful, dragons are terrifying, and stories are harmless. This isn't most fairy tales.


Princess Violet is plain, reckless, and quite possibly too clever for her own good. Particularly when it comes to telling stories. One day she and her best friend, Demetrius, stumble upon a hidden room and find a peculiar book. A forbidden book. It tells a story of an evil being -- called the Nybbas -- imprisoned in their world. The story cannot be true -- not really. But then the whispers start. Violet and Demetrius, along with an ancient, scarred dragon, may hold the key to the Nybbas's triumph . . . or its demise. It all depends on how they tell the story. After all, stories make their own rules.


Iron Hearted Violet is a story of a princess unlike any other. It is a story of the last dragon in existence, deathly afraid of its own reflection. Above all, it is a story about the power of stories, our belief in them, and how one enchanted tale changed the course of an entire kingdom.

As Celia’s own birthday approaches, she is inexorably drawn into an underground conflict between good and evil—the Kind and the Unkind—that bubbles beneath Suburban High. Plentiful references to music and art—along with the intriguing underworld mythology—make this supernatural series debut a page-turner.
