The YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes – Fall 2012

We are Toilet Papering the Yard here on


Starts Monday, October 22 at noon EST ~ Ends Monday, October 29 at noon EST

Oh, hi! I’m Gina Rosati, author of AURACLE, and I’m so excited you’ve stopped by on your way through The YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes! which we are doing ONCE AGAIN and which (as you probably know) is a fantastic internet contest hosted by The Apocalypsies, featuring a bazillion debut authors and prize packs consisting of books, gift certificates, swag and other cool stuff you didn’t even know you wanted until now! Since this is the third round of the YAmazing Race (the first race was in January, second was in May) you may know exactly what to do, but if you’re just starting out, click here to go to the Apocalypsies website so you can read the complete rules and start from the beginning. Been there? Done that? Then scroll on down!

Oh, look!! This is my book, AURACLE – it came out on August 7th!

August 7, 2012 ~ Roaring Brook Press/Macmillan

16 year old Anna Rogan has a secret she’s only shared with her best friend, Rei; she can astrally project out of her body, allowing her spirit to explore the world and the far reaches of the universe.
When there’s a fatal accident and her classmate Taylor takes over Anna’s body, what was an exhilarating distraction from her repressive home life threatens to become a permanent state. Faced with a future trapped in another dimension, Anna turns to Rei for help. Now the two of them must find a way to get Anna back into her body and stop Taylor from accusing an innocent friend of murder. Together Anna and Rei form a plan but it doesn’t take into account the deeper feelings that are beginning to grow between them.

When you get to the end of this leg of the race (we are Toilet Papering the Yard), there will be a quickie quiz, so read that synopsis over and you’ll be all set 🙂

Swag 🙂 Bookmarks are embellished with a pewter heart, rainbow moonstone, quartz crystal and glass beads.

I have a confession to make – I like swag. Bookmarks, buttons, magnets, silicone bracelets, stickers, it’s all good. I have another confession – my phone takes lousy pictures, but this is a rather blurry shot of what I’m giving away this week. Want to win one? Leave me a comment and I’ll pick seven random winners at the end of the race – just make sure I have an email or some way to contact you.

And yes, I do ship internationally, so comment away!

You are all kinds of awesome and I thank you so much for stopping by!!

Your next stop on the Toilet Papering the Yard leg of the YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes is the website of Emily Hainsworth, author of THROUGH TO YOU

    I didn’t expect to be so drawn to any of the stories, but given that I astro-projected as a child (don’t know how to do it as an adult) – I’m really curious to see how you did it. And bravo for melding the metaphysical into the day to day lives. For that is exactly how it occurs. Thx and your swag looks pretty tempting. J. Deltac
