YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes


(Starts May 2, Noon EST - May 8, 2012)


Hey, you! I was hoping you'd stop by!

Welcome to my stop on (use your deep voice at this part): The YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes (PRIZES, Prizes, prizes)!

This YAmazing blog hop features 58 debut YA and MG authors and prize packs featuring ARCs, gift certificates, swag, and more! If you haven’t yet been to the Apocalypsies website, please click here to read the complete rules. Now on to the race!

LIES BENEATH by Anne Greenwood Brown

This isn't Disney. Calder White lives in the cold, clear waters of Lake Superior, the only brother in a family of murderous merpeople obsessed with killing Jason Hancock, the man they blame for their mother’s death. To lure the aquaphobic Hancock onto the lake, the mermaids charge Calder with the task of seducing the man’s daughter, seventeen-year-old Lily Hancock. Get close to the daughter, they tell him, and you’ll get close to the family. Get close to the family, and you’ll get close to the man. Get him out on the water. We’ll take care of the rest.

But Calder screws everything up by falling in love. Now he’s in the unenviable position of trying to love the girl while simultaneously plotting her father’s murder. Suffice it to say, his sisters aren’t pleased with his effort, and Calder’s running out of time (and excuses).

GOT all that? Good! Store it away in your brain for the quiz ahead, and if you'd like to listen to the beginning of Chapter One (Audio Book), click here: Lies Beneath Sample. Or if you'd like to check out the Book Trailer. To pre-order, go to AmazonB&N, or Indiebound.

Finally, do you want even MORE PRIZES (PRIZES, Prizes, Prizes)????? Wow. Ok. Share the Book Trailer/Youtube link with your friends on Facebook, TAG ME (Anne Greenwood Brown) in the post so I know about it, and I'll add your name to a drawing for a Lies Beneath T-shirt (sizes S, M, L, XL available while supplies last). 5 winners will be picked! Tell me you've pre-ordered your book, and I'll add your name to the drawing 3 times. Yowza!

Ready to move on? Click here to go to the next site and say "howdy" to Liz Norris for me when you get there.

Good bye. Come back again some time!
