Start Your Engines: The YAmazing Race with MG-nificient Prizes!

Hello Racers! This is my first time participating in the Apocalypsies’ YAmazing Race with MG-nificient Prizes – yay! In addition to winning great Apocalypsie-centric prizes, I’ll also be hosting my own giveaway on May 5 to celebrate the one-month-to-launch date of my own book, so stay tuned for that post.

The race details:

First of all, if you haven’t read the rules for the YAmazing Race, check them out on the Apocalypsies website.  Everything you need to know to participate can be found there.

Secondly, the race runs from May 2, 2012 at noon EST to May 8, noon EST.

Now, onto the race!


Two hundred years from now, blood has become the most valuable commodity on the planet—especially the blood of aboriginal peoples, for it contains antibodies that protect them from the Plague ravaging the rest of the world. Sixteen-year-old Cassandra Mercredi might be immune to Plague, but that doesn’t mean she’s safe—government forces are searching for those of aboriginal heritage to harvest their blood. When a search threatens Cassandra and her family, they flee to the Island: a mysterious and idyllic territory protected by the Band, a group of guerilla warriors—and by an enigmatic energy barrier that keeps outsiders out and the spirit world in. And though the village healer has taken her under her wing, and the tribal leader’s son into his heart, the creatures of the spirit world are angry, and they have chosen Cassandra to be their voice and instrument… Incorporating the traditions of the First Peoples as well as the more familiar stories of Greek mythology and Arthurian legend, Shadows Cast by Stars is a haunting, beautifully written story that breathes new life into ancient customs.

    1. Hi Heather,

      If you want to drop me an email with your contact info, I’d be happy to forward it to my Canadian publicist and see if she can send you a review copy. I can’t promise anything, but she’s the one who’s handling that stuff for me…

  4. Greek mythology + Arthurian legend = awesomeness so awesome that it isn’t even on the scale! 😉 Thanks for writing this! 😀
