Yet Another Ice Bucket Challenge Video!

I was called out to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by the ladies of Writers Cubed (who put on the most excellent Teen Author Bootcamp). I accepted their challenge and here are the results.

Luckily my kids couldn't lift the bucket all that high, but they sure did think it was funny.

KidA: "Mom, can we do this every day???"

I hereby nominate Natalie Whipple, Elana Johnson, and Colleen Houck to take the challenge next. You have 24 hours!

A secret from THE ETERNITY KEY and cover reveal contest winner(s)

Four things from me today!

1. I'm going to be a panelist at Salt Lake Comic Con! I am so super excited--and they even made me this cool profile pic.

2. My ARCs of THE ETERNITY KEY arrived! I was so thrilled to get this box of books. I swear it feels like I just barely typed "the end" on this story and now it's in my hands in book form. This is my fifth book and it still feels surreal!

3. Now that ARCs are going out into the world, I thought I'd share a secret with you. (Though I don't know how well I've kept it a secret so far). THE ETERNITY KEY features three point-of-view characters.

This means there will be chapters from not only Haden Lord and Daphne Raines, but also some from one of my other favorite characters: Tobin Oshiro-Winters. I realized he had so much going on that he deserved to tell his side of the story. It was so much fun getting to delve into Tobin's head while he tries to sort through his issues with his mother, his sister's disappearance, and not to mention his love life.

4. Also now that I have ARCs, I can send one to the winner from last week's giveaway. Winners actually! I was so excited about getting my box of books that I decided to pick two winners.***
Who are:

Shaili Parmar
Magan Bagan

***Winners, please email your shipping info to me at readbree (at) gmail (dot) com and I will send you your prize. Prizes must be claimed within 30 days of this post or they will be forfeit.
