//VORTEX Release Day! Win a Signed Copy!

I’m so excited to finally have this second book out for Tempest fans and hopefully maybe with the paperback of Tempest out, some new fans will emerge!

First off, Mark Perini (aka-Model Jackson) is reviewing Vortex today over at our other blog, mark and julie gchat. His review is like the most important of all the reviews because he’s on the cover, right? 

On to the contest! To enter, all you have to do is tweet or fb about Vortex release day and then leave me a comment in the comment section telling me that you’ve done the deed (hehe) and why you’re excited about Vortex release day. If you’re not excited, well…just find someone who is and tells us their reason. 

Winner will receive a personalized signed copy of VORTEX and TEMPEST.

Leave your email to enter. Winner will be chosen by random selection tomorrow and emailed after.

Open to International People.

Thank you!!

    I'm excited about Vortex because the ending of Tempest almost killed me and I need to know what happens next!

    Oh my goodness! I loved loved loved Tempest and am *this close to* dying to read Vortex!
    I'm excited to read it because I'm the kind of person who always wants to know what happens next. So post-Tempest, what is Jackson doing? And of course, the ending of Tempest really…affected me in so many ways that I can't not read the sequel! πŸ˜‰

    I tweeted about it: https://twitter.com/precious_shusky/status/291210282443874304

    Done.I hope I win, I am really looking forward to read Vortex!!! I can't buy the book now because I'm short on cash right now,but uuugh so excited for it.
    The reason why I'm excited is why ofcourse , I want to know what happens next!! I mean the ending crushed me, as in left speechless! and I was left thinking about the book for almost two weeks!
    The writing style just draws you to the story, and forces you to feel for the characters!And most of all there is nothing cliche about Jackson and Holly's relationship! NOTHING.

    I loved tempest! Not only was it something a bit different from something I read, it was in a boys POV which is really hard for a female writer to do, but you pulled it off
