Dark Eden Blog Tour + Giveaway

Welcome to the official Dark Eden blog tour!

Halloween is just around the corner and to celebrate the publication of Dark Eden, available everywhere November 1st, this month author Patrick Carman will be visiting blogs to share spooky guest posts and sneak peeks from his brand new book and app.

Title: Dark Eden

Author: Patrick Carman

Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books

Pub. date: November 1, 2011

Pages: 336

Find it: Amazon, Barnes & Noble


When Will Besting approaches Fort Eden for the first time, he knows something isn’t right.

With more terrifying secrets at every turn he discovers a hidden fear deep inside himself, a dark mystery a thousand years in the making, and the unexpected girl of his dreams.

But can he save everyone from the dangers of Fort Eden before it’s too late?


I am super excited to be a part of the tour for Patrick Carman’s Dark Eden. I had the chance to read and review the book, which was definitely creepy, especially when combined with the different multimedia components.

I downloaded the App from iTunes which let me experience Dark Eden in a completely different – and definitely more chilling – way than just reading the book, and it’s absolutely worth checking out. (Details and a whole bunch of other awesome stuff are available from the Dark Eden website, linked below.)

I took the Fear Test, which I highly recommend, but prepare to be scared. I know I was. And if you stick it out to the end, you get to meet Rainsford, the “mastermind” behind Fort Eden.

According to my test, apparently I’d much rather be curled up with a book and my iPod rather than hanging out in a crowd of people. It was so right!

There is a sequel planned, which I had no idea about when I read the book, but I can’t wait for its release. Dark Eden 2: Eve of Destruction will be released on April 24, 2012 and is available to pre-order at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

My tour stop gives everyone a peek at an interview with Alex Hersch, one of the seven victims patients at Fort Eden. Check it out, below. I am also giving away a pre-order of Dark Eden at the end of this post.


At Fort Eden, Will Besting and six other teenagers take turns in mysterious fear chambers designed to help them overcome their crippling phobias.

On today’s tour stop check out this private video interview with one of Dark Eden‘s characters, Alex Hersch.

Do you dare to face your fears?
