LARKSTORM Book Launch Party & Giveaway

Have you ever wanted to be on the trendsetting side of the reading world? Wanted to read a new book and support it from the very beginning? So you can tell all future fan-girls that you liked it before it blew up? Ever wanted to chat with the author and ask her all your burning questions? About her characters, her writing process, and exactly how one goes about writing a dystopian series while schlepping three kids back and forth between lacrosse practice and basketball games (oh yeah, and homeschooling)?

And have a chance to win a free copy of the eBook?


Then join us in our celebration of LARKSTORM by Dawn Rae Miller, which releases today.

Blurb from Goodreads:

In the years following the destructive Long Winter, when half the world’s population perished, the State remains locked in battle against the Sensitives: humans born with extra abilities. 

As one of the last descendants of the State’s Founders, seventeen-year-old Lark Greene knows her place: study hard and be a model citizen so she can follow in her family’s footsteps. Her life’s been set since birth, and she’s looking forward to graduating and settling down with Beck, the boy she’s loved longer than she can remember.

However, after Beck is accused of being Sensitive and organizing an attack against Lark, he disappears. Heartbroken and convinced the State made a mistake, Lark sets out to find him and clear his name.

But what she discovers is more dangerous and frightening than Sensitives: She must kill the boy she loves, unless he kills her first.



Now, here’s how you get the inside scoop:

If you don’t win the free copy (details below), you can purchase a copy of LARKSTORM ($4.99) from: Amazon (available now in all English territories) and Barnes & Noble (available Thursday). The book is also available on Smashwords, Lulu, and iBooks.

Read the book. Fan-girl out. Make a poster of Beck for your bedroom. Erm. Kidding.

Read the book. Jot down all your burning questions. Submit them as a comment on THIS post, or email them to erincb1[at]yahoo[dot]com by Friday, December 16, 2011. (Modern Bliss members could also PM ErinCB)

The interview, featuring YOUR questions, will post on Tuesday, December 20, 2011 here on Modern Bliss.

A purchase is not necessary to participate, but it’s an awesome book. You really can’t go wrong. Give a little Christmas present to yourself. You can ask a question for Dawn even if you can’t read the book right now. Maybe questions that might make you want to read the book in the future? Or ask her where you should go to dinner should you ever visit San Francisco?
