Read the first chapter of THE SAVAGE GRACE (Plus a contest)

Eep! Eep! Eep!

Fantastic news, my friends. In order to say thank you for all the awesome feedback on the paperback cover of THE LOST SAINT, my publisher (Egmont USA) has decided to let everyone (as opposed to only the first 200 voters) read the prologue and first chapter of THE SAVAGE GRACE. But only for a limited time.

48 hours to be exact.

Between 3 p.m. EST on October 5th (as in right now) and 3 p.m. EST on October 7th you can read the prologue and first chapter of THE SAVAGE GRACE by clicking HERE. [UPDATE: Sorry, the 48 hrs are up and the link has been removed.]

Contest time:

So go on ahead and read the excerpt, and then please share a link to this blog post with anyone who you think would enjoy reading the first chapter (via Twitter, Facebook, blogging, vlogging, newsletter, etc). Then come back here and tell me what you did in the comments of this post (and provide linkage) and I'll enter you to win an autographed copy of ASHES by Ilsa Bick.

Contest ends at 2:30 p.m. EST on October 7th. The winner will be chosen through Random.org and announced on or before Tuesday, October 11th. Contest is open internationally.

Thanks so much for voting for TLS's paperback cover. In case you didn't get to see the final cover design, I'm posting it again here:


(Isn't she a beauty?)


Now, please go read and share the first chapter of THE SAVAGE GRACE while I nervously chew my fingernails and hope you like it . . .

[UPDATE: Sorry, the 48 hrs are up and the link has been removed.]

OOh! So excited! Of course I still have to read The Lost Saint! Planned on reading it before this one, then the date changed :(

So might hold off reading it a little longer, besides these little tastes tend to make me insane!!

Here's a blog post link

I'm still debating whether I'm going to read it or not. I don't know if I can and then have to wait until March to read the rest of the book. Aaahhh, the decisions!!!

Such a great preview! I can't wait for this book! I've also really been looking forward to reading Ashes. I've heard it's a very creepy book and creepy books are my favorite! Thanks so much!
