Spread the AWESOME

Today is a pay-it-forward kind of day.


A few dozen writers around the blogosphere are hugging an author today and touting their work.



This was put together by Awesomeness herself, ElenaJ. Thank you Elena, for putting together this blogfest.


The author I chose to spotlight is Lisa McMann.


I seriously have a girl crush on her!


Her Wake trilogy and her writing style are made of awesome.



And she really inspired me to play up my own style.


SO, I am giving away A SIGNED COPY of WAKE.



Lisa is sooo cool. In the signed copy she wrote "Don't Dream and Drive", something you'll understand after you read the book.

Here's the premise:


For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreams is getting old.

Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie's seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.

She can't tell anybody about what she does -- they'd never believe her, or worse, they'd think she's a freak.

So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn't want and can't control.
Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone.

For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else's twisted psyche. She is a participant....




Fill out the form below and hit submit to be entered.



**The contest ends Friday, 5-7-10 at 5 p.m.**

PLEASE visit the other writers (over 60 of us!) participating in Spread the Awesome day, like Carrie Harris.

My students love Lisa's books. Have you ever been to absolutewrite.com? Lisa is on there a lot and used to share pages of the books she was working on in the forums section. It would be pretty cool to offer her advice on her writing!

From your review, this book sounds fabulous, and the author's inscription has piqued my interest even more. Can't wait to read it!

Great review -- and look at you, having a sweet contest and all that. You rock!

I love this series. Read it three times in a row, just because I think the style is so incredible. And who else could ever pull off such flawless third-person present-tense?

Yeah. Fantastic X 10.

"Made" of awesome? This is the best description I've ever heard! I'm going to read this even if I don't win.
