Watch THE LOST SAINT Trailer AND Read The First Chapter of TLS

12/14/2010

***In case you've been wondering (because people
have apparently been wondering) THE LOST SAINT releases on December 28th. The official launch party will be at The Kings English Bookshop on the 28th at 7pm. For a list of other upcoming events, please see THIS post or click News in the navigation above.***

Seriously, waiting for TLS to hit the shelves at this point is absolutely excruciating. But at least I (finally) get to share a couple of really fun things with you while I wait. Today is a great day here in ReadBree Land--I get to share THE LOST SAINT book trailer!!!

So without any further ado, I present THE LOST SAINT book trailer:




I don't know about you, but the first time (okay, more like the first TEN times) I watched the trailer I literally squeed with joy.

Huge kudos go to the crew at Kineto Pictures for the creating this fabulous trailer, along with Nathan Day (Daniel), Katya Feinstien (Grace), and AJ Walker (Jude) from Urban Talent for their enthusiastic work in the freezing cold. Despite the low temperatures, we had an absolute blast filming.

But that's not all! Now that you've watched the trailer (admit it, more than once, right? :D) you should head over to RT Book Reviews' blog and read the first chapter of TLS. That's right. The first chapter of THE LOST SAINT is up on RT Book Reviews! And in case you missed it, you can read the prologue first here.

Oh, but before you go:

Don't forget that the Countdown to THE LOST SAINT Contest is still ongoing, and you can get additional entries by sharing the trailer and first chapter. 5 entries if you post the trailer on your blog/facebook page, and 2 entries for telling people about this contest. And you can get 1 entry for telling people about the first chapter preview on the RT blog, and an additional 1 entry for commenting on the RT blog post.

That's a total of 9 possible more entries in the contest. Just be sure to tell me what you did in the comments of this post (with proper linkage) in order to qualify for your entries. (Adding up your entries for me is always helpful, too.)

I've also decided to sweeten the deal by adding two signed first editions of MATCHED by Ally Condie.

So contest prizes are now as follows:

1st Place:
6" Kindle with WiFi.
$10 Amazon gift card (so you can buy an eBook version of THE LOST SAINT)
$20 gift card to iTunes (so you can buy the songs on THE LOST SAINT playlist :D).
Signed first edition of MATCHED by Ally Condie

2nd place:
Signed first editions of: MATCHED by Ally Condie, THE SCORCH TRIALS by James Dashner, and BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

3rd Place:
Signed first editions of: THE SCORCH TRIALS by James Dashner, and BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

Remember, contest ends at midnight MST on Dec. 26th and contest winners will be announced the morning of Dec. 28th (TLS release day!)

For full contest rules and information, read THIS POST.

Okay, now go read the first chapter . . .
