I know! You all think I’ve been abducted by aliens (they were very polite and I’m not allowed to talk about it, thanks) but no! In fact, I’ve been head-down and powering through the first draft of STARLING 2! (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.)
But I couldn’t let today go by without noting that TEMPESTUOUS, the third book in the WONDROUS STRANGE trilogy (CHECK OUT THE AWESOME TRAILER BELOW!) has just released in paperback format in the US and digest paperback in Canada! This… this is cause for celebration. For those of you holding off on reading the last book in the series until it was in a more portable (and cheaper!) format, this day is for YOU!
And, just to make it sooper-special, I’m going to give away a US copy (which has a preview of STARLING!!) and a CAN copy (which has a cool matte finish!!), and I will open this contest up INTERNATIONALLY.
All you have to do is REPOST or TWEET the TEMPESTUOUS trailer, seen below, and let me know that you did so in the comments! Contest closes midnight, EST,  June 15, 2012!
And I also want to send a big THANK YOU to all of my readers who have embraced Sonny and Kelley and the rest of the WONDROUS STRANGE crew! It ain’t over yet!
…the End is only the Beginning…

    Hi Lesley. I tweeted your beautiful trailer. Looking forward to meeting you at the SCBWI East Niagara Conference. I’d be delighted to win the Canuck version with the matte cover.

    Hi Lesley Livingston! My name is Ana Barrios and I love your book “Wondrous Strange.” I just posted the “Tempestuous” trailer on my Twitter, plus, I tweeted it to another author that I know. Her name is Colleen Houck and I know she’s always interested in learning about new books. I’m kind of still trying to learn about Twitter, so my Twitter username is @AnaStarlight17. I had loved “Wondrous Strange” ever since I first read it. I would love to win “Tempestuous” because it was so beautiful when I read; it was very romantic! I live in Miami, Florida. Any chance you can come by and visit? I can’t wait to start reading “Tempestuous” again! And I would love to read your other books as well! Have a great summer!!!! 🙂
