Interview with Saundra Mitchell + giveaway!
Hello all! Today I'm super excited to bring you an interview with my friend, imprint buddy, and all around fabulous author, Saundra Mitchell. Her debut novel, SHADOWED SUMMER (Amazon, B&N, Indiebound), is coming out in less than two short weeks (!!!!) and at the end of this post I'll have details for how you can win an autographed copy of this really amazing book.
A bit about the book: I love the tagline for SHADOWED SUMMER: In a town as small as Ondine, every secret is a family secret. It's about a girl growing up in Louisiana one hot summer who begins to be haunted by the ghost of a boy who disappeared years ago. But the book is more than that, it's about friendship and that age when suddenly your best friends start to notice boys and your friendships are tested. It's about growing up, and realizing that you're growing up.
A bit about the author: Saundra is a screenwriter and author. She's funny, she's brilliant with graphic design, and she writes phrases that make me literally put her work down so that I can close my eyes and savour them.
Now for the GIVEAWAY! I truly am so excited for SHADOWED SUMMER to come out and to finally be able to share the love. So leave a comment on either my blog or livejournal to be entered in a drawing for an autographed copy of SHADOWED SUMMER (I'll be giving away TWO). You get an extra entry if you also link to the contest (and put the link in the comments so I know). I'll choose a winner midnight (eastern) on Monday.
And speaking of giveaways, Saundra is having a huge one at her site soon -- go check it out!!
