October 14th is a very special day in Tristan's world, although much of its true meaning has yet to be revealed just yet. (But I can tell you right now, the very first chapter of the series starts on October 14!)
Tristan's story started with Beautiful Death, released October 14, 2013 and now a year later I'm reissuing Beautiful Death in an all new shiny Anniversary Edition. The new edition includes a stunning new cover, The Lost Chapter (previously only available via download) and a never before released short story "Ash Wednesday". It also includes a preview for book two, Bete Noire, there at the end.
In celebration of a year of Uruwashi, I've got stuff to give away! Four (4) winners will get the following prize pack:
1 Signed paperback of Beautiful Death (Anniversary Edition)
1 Signed paperback of Bete Noire
1 Signed paperback ARC of Moon Child
1 Handmade (by me) Uruwashi Bookmark (An "Ash" version or a "Tristan" version)
1 CD of "Uruwashi relevant" music
Entries will be made via the website and will go live either later today or tomorrow. Follow on Twitter for upcoming news. I'll post a picture soon of the prize pack as well.
On Monday I showed you the first reveal for book three, Moon Child, and promised news later in the week for an anniversary edition of Beautiful Death. Well, it's later in the week!
October 14 is a very special date in the Uruwashi Series. A lot revolves around that one little date, most of which has yet to be fully revealed. Tristan and Ash meet face-to-face for the first time on that day. That is why it was the perfect date for the book release! And now, I've got an up-to-date version that will include The Lost Chapter (Chapter 17.5) in its proper place and a never before released short story, Ash Wednesday, all with a shiny new cover to go with it.
Cover reveal(s) will happen in September and the actual book will be released, you guessed it, October 14. There will of course be a giveaway or four, maybe something more. So stick around and win something awesome. ^^
Starting July, I'll be posting four reveals to lead up to the final cover for book three. Excerpts soon thereafter. In addition to those fun bits, I'll be giving away some free books too. And... maybe news on an anniversary edition of Beautiful Death. Stay tuned!
I'm giving away one early copy of Bete Noire. It's super easy to enter. Just go to the Bete Noire Book page and follow the instructions to tweet your entry. Make sure to do the validation or it won't count! Entries are open until noon 3/8. Anyone with an email can enter, just know that the ARC is supplied in the form of a mobi file (Kindle).
Later this week Chapter Two will be posted!
Today I'm sharing a chapter that was in the original drafts of Beautiful Death up until the very last moment. I took it out because I felt it was mostly filler, but it had some moments it in I still wanted so share. That means free reads for you! So here it is, Chapter 17.5: Not Meant For Me.
Congrats to Jodie, Queenie, Jessica and Harriet for winning a signed copy of Beautiful Death from the Goodreads giveaway!
