    Launch into the Galaxy Blog Tour + Giveaway

    Across the Galaxy by Heather Hildenbrand

    I am super thrilled to be a part of the tour this week for the re-launch of author Heather Hildenbrand’s YA fantasy novel Across the Galaxy which got a makeover with the brand new cover shown above.

    As part of the tour not only do we get a chance to reveal the new cover, we get to give away an eBook copy of Across the Galaxy.

    But before we get to that…

    Here’s What Heather Has to Say….

    For me, January marked one year as a published author and to mark that, I wanted to do something special to celebrate how far I’ve come in such a short amount of time. I can think of no better way to celebrate than to show some love to the title that got me here in the first place. Across The Galaxy was my first book and as a result, was also my guinea pig in a lot of ways. Through publishing it, I learned so much and met so many awesome bloggers and readers that I am so grateful for that story and for where it took me. For everything it’s given me, I want to give something back to it. (Yes, I realize I’m referring to my book as if it were a real person. Don’t you do that with the characters inside it? Yeah, I’m not the only crazy here.)

    So, I found one of the best cover artists EVER and together we came up with a brand new cover that will basically rock your socks. Not sure? Take a minute. Go stare at the new cover and then come back and finish reading. I’ll wait. It’s worth it.

    … Now, with a change this big, we aren’t stopping with just a cover reveal. That’s just not enough. So, we’re also doing an e-book giveaway here and another e-book giveaway on every site participating in the “LAUNCH INTO THE GALAXY” Hop this week so be sure to stop everywhere. In addition to THAT, I am also running a giveaway on my publisher’s site at www. Accendopress.com and another one on my personal site at www.heatherhildenbrand.blogspot.com that will include a signed paperback and a very sleek and sexy, leather Kindle cover. Be sure to check that out! And be sure to leave a comment and let us know what you think of the new cover!

    ***

    So what do you think? Are you a fan of the new cover? Or do you prefer the old?

    And if you haven’t yet heard about Across the Galaxy, here’s just a little bit more…

    About the Book….

    Alina Leone is in hiding.

    Her parents are dead, her best friend is a horse, and she can’t return to her home planet of Gliese until the Shadows, the monsters who hunt for her, are found and destroyed.

    But they found her first. The same creatures that murdered her parents and forced her to flee to Earth all of those years ago. And they’ll stop at nothing to destroy the only thing standing in their way for universal domination – Alina.

    She must find the strength to defeat them, even if it means choosing between victory and the one she was meant to save…

    Review: Dirty Blood

    Dirty Blood by Heather Hildenbrand was released in the U.S. in April 2011 in paperback and eBook formats. It is currently available to order online in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Createspace, the print edition is 288 pages.

    Dirty Blood is the first book in the series of the same name by author Heather Hildenbrand. Cold Blood, the second book in the series, was released in November.

    Goodreads description:

    I killed a girl last night. I did it with my bare hands and an old piece of pipe I found lying next to the dumpster. But that’s not the part that got me. The part that scared me, the part I can’t seem to wrap my head around and still has me reeling, was that when she charged me, her body shifted – and then she was a wolf. All snapping teeth and extended claws. But by the time I stood over her lifeless body, she was a girl again. That’s about the time I went into shock… And that was the moment he showed up.

    Now, all I can do is accept the truths that are staring me in the face. One, Werewolves do exist. And Two, I was born to kill them.

    ***

    Learning that you are a werewolf hunter is bad enough. Finding out only when you’re attacked by one is so much worse.

    Tara Godfrey had no idea she was born to hunt werewolves. She had no idea that werewolves even existed until the day one revealed itself to her, attacked her and forced her to defend herself.

    One minute she was safe. One minute she was normal. And the very next she wasn’t.

    From the moment she stepped foot into that alley, her life was forever changed. She discovered enemies she never knew she had. Threats from beings she didn’t even think were real. And an immediate connection to someone she didn’t even know.

    With the danger to her and those she cares about growing nearer, she must quickly find answers about who and what she is, choose which side she’s on, and learn how to protect herself from her enemies.

    And for Tara Godfrey, being in this world of werewolves and hunters means kill or be killed.

    ***

    Dirty Blood is an exciting and action-packed story of werewolves and those who hunt them. It’s a story about those who wish to make peace between the two and those who will fight it every step of the way.

    Tara Godfrey never knew she was different. And she didn’t know there were such things as werewolves. Not until the night she was attacked in the alley outside the pool hall where she’d just ended things with her boyfriend George.

    But when a girl transforms into a wolf before her very eyes and she somehow manages to defeat her, everything she knew about herself and her life is destroyed in an instant. And the more she uncovers about who she really is and what she’s capable of, she discovers that her entire life was built on secrets and lies.

    As Tara fights to understand everything that has happened, find a place for herself in this world and keep her new existence a secret from her friends and family, she must also learn to protect herself from a dangerous enemy that is hell-bent on her elimination.

    Dirty Blood is an enthralling story that is filled with enough action and suspense to keep those pages turning. From the very first, both the reader and Tara are catapulted into a world of werewolves and hunters and are not allowed a reprieve from the surprises and dangers that the story continues to deliver until the very end.

    Tara is an incredibly brave, impetuous and strong-willed heroine who not only accepts this new world she is thrust into, but who readily embraces it. Even though it is a world that is filled with danger and unknown enemies and one in which she has an uncontrollable pull toward a boy she barely knows.

    Author Heather Hildenbrand has written a fast-paced and gripping story that stands out in a genre that is bursting at seams with stories of werewolves and shapeshifters. Her story, Dirty Blood, the first book in the series, is engaging and will leave readers wanting to know more about Tara, Wes, what it means to be a Dirty Blood and what destiny has in store for them both.

    Reviewer gives this book…

    On a personal note:

    I loved this story. It was the perfect escape. I was hooked in by the description and I couldn’t wait to find out more about the world that the author created in Dirty Blood.

    I knew right away that I would love this story and the characters. Not only from that introductory scene hinted at in the description, but from all the detail the author included that really kept me absorbed in her story. She managed to hit the right balance between being too detailed and not detailed enough, a balance that is not always found in self-published stories.

    I wanted to know more immediately, and I almost skipped ahead so I could find out more without having to wait. It was just that good.

    I love Tara. She is reckless and brave and determined. As drawn to Wes as she is, she doesn’t just listen and obey. She has her own mind and makes her own decisions, even if they are often the wrong ones.

    And I absolutely love Wes. Even though he is overprotective and keeps Tara in the dark too often, he is mysterious and sexy, and with everything that happened to him and how he’d been treated, he still manages to be more of a good boy than a bad boy. And while his being fiercely protective of Tara is sometimes a negative, it is way more often a really good thing and one of the reasons I adore him.

    A lot is revealed in this first book in the series but there are still a ton more questions left up in the air and a destiny that has yet to be met. And I can’t wait to read the next book, Cold Blood, to see how many answers the author will reveal or if I’ll be left with even more questions at the end.

    My favorite passage is one that made me laugh out loud. Once you read it I think you’ll know exactly why.

    “How old are you?” I asked, my head cocked to one side.

    “Nineteen.”

    “And how long have you been nineteen?”

    He looked at me like I had a screw loose. “Since I haven’t been eighteen?”

    Cold Blood Blog Tour: Excerpt and Giveaway

    I am so super thrilled to be today’s stop on the Cold Blood Blog Tour hosted by the author, Heather Hildenbrand.

    For my stop I have an EXCERPT from Cold Blood, which was released on November 22, 2011. Cold Blood is the second book in Heather Hildenbrand’s action-packed Dirty Blood series about werewolves and hunters.

    As with each stop on the tour, there is also a GIVEAWAY for one eBook copy of Cold Blood which will be sent to the winner by the author in an electronic format of their choosing. You can enter that giveaway by scrolling down to the bottom of the post and filling out the form.

    But, on my stop, because I absolutely loved Dirty Blood, I will be giving away four…or more… eBook copies of that book, which is the first book in the Dirty Blood series, in Kindle format only. If you’d like the chance to win one of those, just leave a comment with a way to get in touch with you.

    I’ll be choosing winners via Random for both giveaways on December 21st.

    The tour will wrap up on Christmas Day on Accendo Press’ website where they will be giving away a signed paperback copy of Cold Blood to one winner, so be sure to check it out!

    Cold Blood is available in both paperback and eBook formats. You can find it in paperback at Amazon, for the Kindle at Amazon and for the nook at Barnes & Noble.

    Description:

    Wood Point Academy is not at all what I expected. For one thing, it looks like a cross between military school and Buckingham Palace. Everyone stares, the floors shine so bright you can see your reflection in them from a mile away, and no one smiles. Unless they’re kicking your butt in the process.

    At least I’ve got plenty to take my mind off the fact that my psycho cousin, Miles De’Luca, keeps calling and declaring his love and promising to come for me just as soon as he’s destroyed anyone standing in our way. Wes isn’t going to like that idea. So between Miles, Wood Point’s evil welcoming committee, and the drill sergeant hottie trainer from hell, I just keep asking myself…How did I end up here?

    Cold Blood is Book 2 in the Dirty Blood series

    To read all the excerpts in order, be sure to head back to the author’s blog, linked in the button at the top of the post, where you can find a listing of all the stops on the tour.

    If you visit every stop between now and the end of the tour, you’ll have had the opportunity to read the first six chapters of Cold Blood.

    “Being the new kid sucks,” Cambria said.

    It wasn’t a question, but I agreed with a shake of my head.

    “Victoria,” Logan explained when I didn’t answer.

    She scowled. “Enough said.” Then she cocked her head, and looked at me with one brow raised. “What are you going to do?”

    I sighed. “Nothing. Ignore her.”

    Logan nodded, as if he agreed this was a wise decision.

    Cambria’s eyes widened. “Seriously? Nothing?”

    “I can’t,” I said. “I would get into a lot of trouble if I did and not from school. I – well, I – sort of got kicked out of my last school for fighting.”

    “You got expelled?” Logan’s eyes were wide in disbelief.

    Cambria laughed, eyes dancing in amusement. “I knew we were meant to be best friends. You’re already my kind of girl.”

    “And what kind of girl is that? Violent?” Logan asked.

    “Not boring,” Cambria shot back. “Go on,” she said, looking at me.

    “My mom would kill me. Trust me, she’s waiting for a good reason. And worse, Grandma would be disappointed. And I don’t think I could go home anyway. They’d just ship me off somewhere else.”

    Logan and Cambria both nodded in understanding and let the subject drop.

    I picked at my food until I was sure I wouldn’t be able to force anything else down. “Can I ask you guys something?”

    They nodded.

    “Why are you being nice to me? Everyone else here hates me and has no problem letting me know it. And I’ve already seen them looking at you the same way for being with me. I’m not saying I don’t appreciate it, but why bother?”

    “You don’t strike me as the type who cares what other people think,” Cambria said.

    “I’m not,” I said. “But I’d hate to see you guys getting dumped on for being seen with me. I would understand if you want to walk away.”

    Cambria shook her head. “And where would the fun in that be? Logan?”

    “No fun at all,” he agreed, smiling.

    Cambria glanced at him and then back at me, smiling. “If you haven’t noticed already, Logan and I are officially what you would call misfits. Logan doesn’t fit in anywhere. He’s too much of a hottie to blend with the geeks and the cool kids all figured out that he’s too smart to sink to their shallow standards. So he’s got nowhere to go. And me, well, I’m too stubborn to conform. Or at least that’s what my transcript says. They don’t know I read that, though.”

    She winked at me, and I couldn’t help but laugh. It wasn’t loud or long but it was still laughter and it felt good to let it out.

    “Don’t let her noble speech fool you,” Logan said. “Cambria likes to stir the pot, and you being here has already kicked it up a notch. Besides, anything that pisses off Victoria is right up her alley.”

    Cambria shrugged, neither confirming nor denying Logan’s words, and looked back at me. “And the way it’s looking, you’re no better off than we are, socially speaking. So, you’re stuck with us. Might as well make the best of it.”

    My Reading Pile #38

    I may have received a few books in the past week. One or two or twenty-two. I did have issues with the mailman and the unattended mailboxes again. But I don’t think I’m missing any and actually received a couple books I’ve been waiting anxiously for.

    As I am sharing what I received in my mailbox this week, I’m giving credit to Kristi at The Story Siren who came up with the idea of sharing what’s in her mailbox each week.

    I received Bloodrose temporarily thanks to Mindy of Magical Urban Fantasy Reads who offered to lend me her copy for a few weeks. I will have to re-skim Wolfsbane first and possibly write my review and then I’ll dive right into Bloodrose. I can’t wait. Thanks so much Mindy!

    All the rest of the books in the pile above are thanks to a trade with one of my trading partners. They actually arrived in two shipments – which include the eleven books in the third picture that she sent just because she was cleaning off her shelves.

    One of the shipments the post office did manage to tear apart a little, the other arrived intact. I can’t wait to get to a few of these books – especially Truth, Balthazar, and Immortal City. And a couple of them I’m lending out to one of my favorite bloggers, Jaime, as I know she’ll be able to read them before I do.

    I also got back my two copies of If I Die by Rachel Vincent that I sent to the author who so generously agreed to sign them for me. As always, I don’t publicize personal inscriptions, because they’re, well, personal. But only one of those is mine. The second copy I got signed for Alba of Book Pics and I’ll be sending that on to her today.

    Right below that is a finished copy of Pretty in Black by Rae Hachton that I received from the author for review. I will be participating in the book tour this month and actually plan on reading it this week.

    At the bottom is Destined by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast that I received from the publisher for review. I hope to get to it in the next few weeks because I am curious about this new character who’s apparently a yummy cowboy.

    And, finally, completely unexpected, was this stack of books I received in my box of trades. I hadn’t requested them, but my trading partner just sent them in case I might want them, along with some swag. I’m not sure if I’ll be keeping any of them, but I do think the new covers for the classics are really pretty.

    Other than After Obsession, I don’t think I’ve heard of any of the other books. So maybe I’ll pass these along in a Clearing the Pile giveaway, though I wanted to avoid the post office at all costs after today.

    Anyway, yeah, my apartment is piled high with books. They do not fit on my book tower, which is now over-full. But maybe if I get reading, I can start to pass more of these along. So….

    Here are the books I have in my reading pile this week.

    (December 4-December 10, 2011)

    ***

    First up is Pretty in Black by Rae Hachton. I received a finished copy of this book from the author for review. In print, this cover is absolutely beautiful.

    I heard about this book earlier this spring on Twitter and I headed over to the author’s blog to check it out. This book sounded so dark and the title immediately grabbed me so I decided to sign up to receive an ARC and I kept my fingers crossed.

    The author asked if I’d be interested in being part of her blog tour and I jumped at the chance. And since my stop is on December 19th, I thought I’d add Pretty in Black to the pile this week even though I just received it a few days ago.

    I’m excited to meet Ellie Piper and Marcus Marble. And I can’t wait to find out just what happens for this “troubled, suicidal teen” and this boy that she meets in the cemetery who returned from the dead for her. I always love stories where the characters are fated to be together, even those where that’s not necessarily a good thing.

    As the holidays draw near I do seem to be in a mood to read darker books, and I am thrilled to be adding Pretty in Black to the pile this week.

    Next up on the pile is Cold Blood by Heather Hildenbrand. I am just now reading Dirty Blood, but I should be done by the time I start on this new pile on Sunday. I received an eARC for review for the tour that will be stopping here on December 20th.

    While a review is not required, I did want to read both books and hopefully I’ll have finished the series in time to have a review posted of Cold Blood for my stop.

    The description for this sequel on Goodreads is linked in the cover image, but I have not looked at it as I don’t want any spoilers for the first book in the series and Goodreads has a way of doing just that.

    But this series about werewolves is a dark and gritty one and I am excited to be able to devour both books this week.

    Wishful Thinking reads:

    I would love to read Death Sentence by Alexander Gordon Smith. I may have already mentioned this once or twice on my wishful thinking reads. But I still wish I could be reading it now.

    I just found Fugitives – the next book in the series – on NetGalley and haven’t yet heard back from the publisher. But I’m really, really hopeful I’ll be approved because I totally would read it well in advance of release because this series is so flipping fantastic, you have no idea how much I love it.

    Okay, maybe those of you who have stopped by the blog know. Because I can’t stop talking about it.

    Those left behind:

    I ended up reading a book that was on the pile from an earlier week before I started last week’s reads, but I did finish and review Clockwork Prince. And as I am reading Dirty Blood right now and will finish it before Sunday, I’m not really behind with last week’s reads.

    But I do have to review that other book, Hushed, which I hope to do today. And boy is that one going to be tough. What a dark and amazing book it was. It really left me with that hollowed out feeling that I love. But that type of book does require recovery time and sadly I just don’t have much time to recover.

    And I have to review Everneath this weekend. I just have to. Every time I think about Cole and Nikki I still get that twisty feeling when I remember the two of them all wrapped up together and it makes me sigh. I need to hang on to that feeling and am so afraid I’ll lose it if I read too many more books before I write my review.

    ***

    I utterly failed in my request-free week. I did end up requesting a couple titles from NetGalley.

    One is Fugitives, which I’m dying to read and panicking because I have not heard word one from the publisher. And the other is Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard. It just sounds so wonderful and isn’t out until March which means it could be one of my “me” reads for February.

    My Reading Pile #37

    Well, where last week was a slow week, this week wasn’t quite as slow, even though it was a holiday week. On Monday and Tuesday I received a total of eleven books and some amazing swag in my mailbox.

    And while a couple of those books were damaged, a couple are only mine temporarily, and many of them have already been sent on to others from quickie giveaways I held, I am just so happy it wasn’t another empty mailbox week.

    As I am sharing what I received in my mailbox this week, I’m giving credit to Kristi at The Story Siren who came up with the idea of sharing what’s in her mailbox each week.

    I received these five books from a trade with another blogger. This was the package that was tattered and torn and severely delayed by the post office. My poor copy of Wings of the Wicked was dirtied, shredded and totally beaten up and my copy of A Touch Morbid was scuffed, but fortunately not as destructed.

    I gave away all of the books but A Touch Morbid which I’ve already read and reviewed before I created this post, because I just couldn’t wait to read it. And I’m sure I’ll be reading it again a few times before release day.

    I received temporary custody of Clockwork Prince from a mini tour of the ARC from the ladies at The YA Sisterhood. It will be headed out on Monday to the next stop, but I will hopefully have read and reviewed it by then.

    I received a copy of A Touch Morbid and a signed copy of Anathema thanks to Mindy of Magical Urban Fantasy Reads. Mindy saw how devastated I was for not getting a copy of A Touch Morbid and offered to send me hers. I begged her not to, but she insisted because she’s just so amazing, and of course my MIA copy arrived the day before I got hers. So, I will be sending it back to her, because she just has to read it. But I will be keeping the signed book for me.

    I also received a few ARCs from a trade I had done awhile back with Alex of Electrifying Reviews. As I have already read and reviewed Dead Rules, I will be passing this ARC along. And as I’d received an ARC of Blood Red Road from Jaime of Two Chicks on Books some time ago, I will also pass this along on my blog My Reading Pile.

    And, I received the most amazing swag pack in the mail from author Brodi Ashton. I was talking with Jaime of Two Chicks on Books on Twitter and she mentioned getting Cole’s guitar pick necklace and some other swag thanks to the author. Well, this totally amazing author saw our conversation and offered to send me one too. And I jumped at the chance.

    I absolutely love collectible guitar picks and these two for Everneath are amazing. Especially since I read Everneath and know… well I can’t say what I know, but I am so unbelievably happy to have them. And yes, Everneath is an absolutely amazing book.

    Anyway, onto what I plan on reading this week…

    Here are the books I have in my reading pile this week.

    (November 27-December 3, 2011)

    ***

    First up is Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare. I received an ARC through a mini tour thanks to the wonderful bloggers at The YA Sisterhood. I only have the book for a few days, so it’s right at the top of the pile. And as release date is only just over a week away, I’m super excited to get a chance to read this now.

    I loved Clockwork Angel. It was the first steampunk book I’d read and the concept intrigued me. It wasn’t too heavily steeped in the genre to make the story feel totally out of my comfort zone. And the story had all the elements I loved about The Mortal Instruments with the Shadow Hunters, lovable characters, and the author’s incredible writing.

    I can’t wait to start reading this book and find out just what’s going to happen with Tessa, Will and Jem. I heard that the story is even more amazing than the first book in The Infernal Devices series and I am excited to find out for myself.

    Next up on the pile is Dirty Blood by Heather Hildenbrand. I purchased the eBook to read prior to reading the sequel, Cold Blood, for the blog tour I’ll be participating in next month. The author offered me a copy of this first book, but I missed the email and ended up buying it.

    This series sounds dark and gritty and based on the description a book I will totally enjoy. While I’ve read several books about werewolves, I’ve never read one about a character who hunts and kills them.

    And as the description doesn’t offer up much about the main character or what’s in store for them in this book, I am super curious to find out. And can’t wait to start reading it later this week.

    Wishful Thinking reads:

    I would love to read On a Dark Wing by Jordan Dane, which is the book I spotlighted yesterday for my Book Watch post. It has been teasing me on my eBookshelf for weeks and after reading a comment on my post from someone who read it, it’s now moved itself right up to my wishful thinking read for this week.

    I can technically take A Touch Morbid off my wishful thinking reads list because I did receive it this week and read it and loved it. But it is still a wishful thinking read, because I wish I could read it again and again.

    Those left behind:

    I did not finish both reads from last week’s pile because I ended up going off pile to read A Touch Morbid. As soon as I finish Clockwork Prince I will be reading Hushed, so I’m only just a few days behind on my reading pile and hope to finish that book and both books on this week’s pile.

    I did manage to stay request free this week, though it’s been tough. There are just so many books I’m dying to request from the 2012 catalogs, but I’ve held my ground.

    Though I did forget that the other week I received the catalog from Macmillan Audio and was asked if there were any audiobooks I wanted for review and ended up selecting four, including Cinder, which I received last week for download and which I hope to listen to and review soon.

    Do you create a reading pile?

    If so, what’s in your pile this week?
