YAmazing Race

It’s that time again… time for the Apocalpysies’ YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes — a blog tour featuring over 50 debut young adult and middle grade authors and your chance to win great prizes!

Thanks for visiting this final stop on the “Egg a House” leg of the tour. (If you’ve come here first, be sure to start from the beginning for a full explanation of the rules!) Now, I’d like to introduce you to my book:

STARTING FROM HERE

A young adult novel from Amazon Children’s Publishing
(formerly Marshall Cavendish Children’s Books)
ISBN 13: 9780761462330
Order books: Indiebound | Barnes & Noble | Amazon
Download e-books: Kindle

Sixteen-year-old Colby Bingham’s heart has been broken too many times. Her mother is dead, her truck driver father is always away, and her almost girlfriend just dumped her for a guy. When an injured stray dog lands at her feet, she decides to care for it, against her better judgment. But new connections mean new opportunities for heartbreak. Terrified of another loss, Colby bolts at the first sign of trouble, managing to alienate her best friend, her father, the cute girl pursuing her, and even her dog’s vet, who’s taken Colby under her wing. Colby can’t start over, but can she learn how to move on?

Bonus Prize

In addition to grand prize drawing, all visitors who comment on this post will be entered into a prize drawing for a signed copy of Starting from Here!

And now… off you go to the finish line. Remember, you’ve got until Monday, October 29, at noon EST, to finish. Thanks again for stopping by!

ETA: The YAMazing Race with MGnificent Prizes is now over. The random number generator has spoken, and Commenter #27, Precious, is the winner of the signed copy of Starting from Here. Thanks, everyone, for your interest in my book. I hope you get a chance to read it!

    *phew* that security question was tough [six +7] making me do math XD

    anyways, I LOVE the concept of this book. Honestly more authors should take on the topic of LGBT, because it helps ppl understand more. LOVE the simple yet ROCKING cover! =D

    Great timing–I’m in the middle of Starting From Here as we speak! I’m really enjoying it but sadly it lives on my Kindle–I would love a signed copy to proudly display on my shelves!
