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 AGAIN and which (as you probably know) is a fantastic internet contest hosted by The Apocalypsies, featuring over 50 debut authors and prize packs consisting of ARCs, gift certificates, swag and other cool stuff you didn’t even know you wanted until now! Since this is the second round of the YAmazing Race (the first race was in January) 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 comes out on August 7th!
August 7, 2012 ~ Roaring Brook Press/Macmillan
On the surface, there’s nothing special about Anna Rogan; she gets average grades, she’s not especially beautiful, and she spends most of her time just hanging out with her best friend, Rei. But Anna has a secret; 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 an accident and her classmate Taylor takes over Anna’s body, what was an exhilarating distraction from her repressive life threatens to become a permanent state. Faced with a future of never aging, never being heard or touched, Anna turns to Rei for help. Together they search for a way to get Anna back into her body in time to stop Taylor from accusing an innocent friend of her murder, but they don’t take into account the deeper feelings that are beginning to grow between them.
A story about an out-of-body experience gone terribly wrong, AURACLE reaches deep within the soul of one girl to discover the strength of love and the power of a single touch.
When you get to the end of this leg of the race (we are Laser-Eyed Iguanas), there will be a quiz! Random Fact about Me: I’m not a fan of quizzes, so I’m going to give you a clue – you’ll be asked what is Anna’s secret? (Psssst . . . she can astrally project!)
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? Go onto my Facebook page by clicking here, then click “Like” and I’ll pick seven random winners at the end of the week OR if you already like my page, you can leave me a comment here. If you aren’t on FB at all, leave a comment here – it all counts. I’ll contact you through Facebook (or reply to your comment) and you can private message your mailing address to me. I hope that makes sense.
You are all kinds of awesome and I thank you so much for stopping by!!
