A Few Announcements:

-Bill Walker, author of A Note from an Old Acquaintance, informed me that Amazon lowered the price to $4.99 for the Kindle edition. Now, that's a good deal! If you haven't read this book yet, you should, it was really good.

-Kate O'Hegarty, newly published author of Mieradome, is finally available for purchase online! I bought my copy yesterday and I look forward to reading it. If this is the first time you've heard about this book, check out the summary below...

Summary: Mieradome pulls the reader into a unique fantasy world of faeries and technology, a different take on the Alice in Wonderland concept. The story revolves around a young girl named Amavia who believes she is a human girl, but slowly comes to find she is a faery in the world of Mieradome. Slowly who Amavia was began to unravel to show the truth; the truth that she just may be the evil they need to destroy. This is the first novel in a series, and gives a glimpse of what is to come for the main character Amavia. Fans of the Harry Potter series and His Dark Materials will definitely enjoy this adventure.

Sounds pretty cool right? You can purchase a copy here.

-Lisa, one of the sweetest publicist online is hosting a super cool contest on her blog. Prizes up for grab are: Finished copy of Manifest by Artist Arthur, Manifest totebag, ARC of Firelight by Sophie Jordan, ARC of Sapphique by Catherine Fisher, MP3-CD of Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson and Manifest coin purse & notebook/pen set (not pictured.) How awesome does that sound!? Go visit her blog here to enter! But, don't wait too long it ends on August 6th and it's international!

-I was approached by a non-profit organization called Arts Engine Inc. and they are trying to raise money to edit their latest documentary. Their documentary focuses on, "the complexity surrounding sexual identity." I think this is a subject that a lot of people deal with on a daily basis and donating to this cause will help share the awareness. They so far raised $3,057 but have a goal of $10,000. Unfortunately, they only have 21 days to go so if you are interested in donating, visit their site for further details here.
