Big news, bigger giveaway!!!



Welcome to the Tuesday tease!
Yes! It’s here, my ~BIG~ news. Things have been happening behind the scenes and I’m so glad to finally share them with you! Drumroll………The SOMEONE TO LOVE Series has been purchased by Skyscape publishing in a three-book deal! *throws confetti* *happy dances*
Skyscape is a division of Amazon’s traditional publishing arm, and has an amazing team that’s dedicated to making their books succeed. I’m so excited to be working with everyone over at Skyscape including the super awesome, Tim Ditlow! *waves at Tim* I’m super thrilled to experience everything they have to offer and super excited to get started.
I want to especially thank my agent Rachelle Gardner for helping me get there. She’s my ninja fairy godmother, so it’s no surprise she makes magic happen. She always seems to get me to exciting places. Thank you, Rachelle!
And I can’t wait to bring the rest of the series to you. It's steamy, and fun, and well... more Cruise. ;)
So, what does this mean? SOMEONE TO LOVE will be released as a paperback sometime in the fall (October-ish). Book two, Ally and Morgan’s story will be released around the New Year—and the final book which reverts back to Kendall and Cruise will hit the bookshelves shortly thereafter.
I’m really excited—so much so that I want to get you excited too. So here's a little giveaway to celebrate this awesome publishing news, the launch of EVANESCENT, and as my thank you to YOU for getting me on the bestseller’s list this year. I’m giving away four Amazon gift cards for $25.00 each, along with a Kindle fire HD!!!! That’s right, FIVE winners!!!!!!!! I’ll announce the winners on May 7, 2013. The deadline to enter is midnight pacific time May 6, 2013 and the only way to enter is through rafflecopter. (If you’re reading on facebook please drift on over to the blog!)  

Now for some odd news…
Saturday morning I wake up groggy, sans coffee, flip open the laptop and see the new ad for this season of the Bachelorette. Fun right? I’m their biggest fan so I’m already there! But I must say I was a bit surprised when I saw the dress the new bachelorette donned to kick off her hormone-laden journey. It looked a little familiar. Like really familiar. As in Laken Stewart, familiar. Well, anyway here are my book covers, and their ad for the new season so we can do a little juxtaposition…




SO what do you think? A little photo-shopping and I can use it as the final cover for the trilogy. Right? 
I’m teasing. I’m totally awestruck to be in such great company. And I guess this is a great time to tell you all about my New Adult book entitled, THE FINAL ROSE, in which my protagonist Christina Harrison goes on a wild and steamy adventure while shopping for love on a reality show. Sounds cool, right? I jest. I JEST!!!
I love my covers. I love their ad—great minds and all that good stuff. I’m still their number one fan. Or at least I will be once I procure some tickets to the season finale.

On to the teasers and please don’t forget to enter below with rafflecopter!
Happy reading!   

ELYSIAN (Celestra Series Book 8) The Final book in the young adult series.
 (Logan to Skyla in front of Chloe)

“You and Chloe are friends?” Logan wraps his arm around me tight as we follow Ingram down the winding path. “When did this happen?”
“It happened never. She’s just trying to meet her quota of lies for the day. I’m her most prolific subject if you haven’t noticed.”

ELYSIAN (Celestra Series Book 8) The Final book in the young adult series.
(Skyla with Barron and Emma)

“So have you decided which one you’ll spend the rest of your life with?” Barron says it so banal and polite you’d think I was getting ready to order dinner off a menu—more like dessert. Gage would be liquid fudge and Logan would be one of those exotic dishes that they set on fire before they serve it to you.
I shake the thought away.
I can’t believe my mind just reduced a Celestra to flames, it’s so not right.

ELYSIAN (Celestra Series Book 8) The Final book in the young adult series.
(Gage and Skyla on Rockaway Beach with Nev)

Nev has the nerve to hop into our tiny hut and onto my back.
“Hey, dude.” Gage gives him a gentle push off my person. “If I’m not getting any action, neither are you,” he teases. 
I give a soft laugh. “God, Gage.” I trace out his perfect lips, and my muscles tense up. “Everything in me wants to give you more than a little action,” I whisper.


Hope you enjoyed!
Enter below to win one of four $25.00 Amazon gift certificates or a 7” Kindle Fire HD!

Hi! First congrats on the amazing news. You absolutely deserve it. Second after a month or more of kindle drama (mine being stolen, saving to replace it only to get one with a bad charger port. Sending that back, receiving a new one and 3days later having my sweet baby Khloe throw it and break the screen..... ) I finally have a Kindle again. So now its time to play catch up.I am going to start EK again tonight!! Ive been going cray cray without my escape. Third as always awesome teasers. Cant wait to see who Skyla chooses to spend her life with.. Again congrats on STL! Glad to be back on Paragon...

MM2011 said...

Congratulations! That couldn't have happens to a more deserving author! :-)

I don't believe in coincidences but I do believe that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery ;-)

Thank you as always for brightening my Tuesday and I can't wait for release dates! =)

Rachel Davila said...

Hate to say it, I'm kinda bummed that they used the Laken dress before I got to use it for my wedding. Oh well, you are invited so you can see it in person. Congrats on all the wonderful things going on in your life! And we thought life in the medical field was interesting. Way to show us there is life after patients. Thank you!

Addison Moore said...

Miss sorrows - lol! The final cover will most likely have a rose dress on it. ;)

skyekiloh - Oh I wouldn't, but I'm sure it'll be very close to the other two. Good luck with the drawing!!!

sweetmary21489 - I absolutely LOVE talking to you guys!! And I also love that you're enjoying the teasers. :)

Kim Wolfenbarger - Thank you! And I hope you win a prize!

Anna - Aww, thank you Anna! Hugs for being so kind! :)

Shemarhof - Edits are going great so far! I'm almost halfway done with my end and I'll send that to the editor so we can move quicker! It's all coming together!

Caryn - Oh, I hope you have fun with EVANESCENT! I really hope you're enjoying the 3 POVs. I can't wait to do that again!

Books That Kept Me Up Last Night - Thank you~! I love your name. :)


Addison Moore said...

Nancy Caudle - Nancy! That is the sweetest thing anyone has said to me. I'm so super humbled by that. Thank you.

Kathyeb76 - Ha, ha! Thank you! I like my dresses, too. ;)

Ya'Meki McElroy - Thank you! I hope you'll enjoy all that's coming down the pike. :)

Jami Freed - Yay!!!! I'm happy dancing for you. I know how it feels to lose/break/miss something then get it back. Ack! Have fun with EK! Those boyz are a wee bit naughty...

Chelsea - I'm so glad you enjoyed STL! I'm really hoping you'll enjoy Someone Like You. It's every bit as steamy if not more and Morgan is pretty spectacular. ;)

jadeen - Thank you! I have fun putting them up. :)

Christina Wong - lol! Yes, I totally agree, only I'm not entirely sure they saw it.

kcasanova88 - Thank you! And I can't wait to share with you how it all ends. #ELYSIAN

skyla - lol, I'd like to think so! And as for ELYSIAN, a month-ish?

MM2011 - Thank you. And I'd still like ABC to cough up a couple tickets to the show! If I had a rose dress I'd wear it. ;) For real.

Rachel Davila - gah! Wear it anyway! I SO would if I could. It's your wedding-it's all you girl!!! And yes there is life after the hospital. :) Although if my unit didn't close I'd probably still be there. I used to write at night and in the wee hours of the morning.

Amber Whitaker said...

Love your books.. I discovered them by accident a month ago and have bought them all in this past month lol. Thank you Amazon for recommending! I can't wait to find out how it all ends. By now with most authors you can guess the ending and who the girl ends up with. Its usually the same happy ending...but with you..I am kept guessing. I love it.

Amber Whitaker said...

Btw...I am dying to finally find out why the Countenance hate Celestra so much and why Laken was taken. Also why Chloe hates Skyla so much. I love Gage, Logan, and Wes but I am rooting for Coop and Marshall.

CRAZY4BOOKS2522 said...

Crazy cover! who knows... u know imitation is the greatest form of flattery and all that ha..... well I am ready to read whatever u publish! haven't skipped a book yet!!!!

Addison Moore said...

Amber Whitaker - Wow, thank you so much for reading! I'm glad you found the books! And I'm so glad to keep you guessing! I'm always afraid I'm being too obvious. And that's the truth! I hope the final books answer all of your questions! I think they will. ;)

Hi Addison! I'm a little confused regarding the competition- how do we enter? And, is it only for people in the US?
LOVE YOUR BOOKS AND THE CHARACTERS!
<3

Kelly W said...

Congrats on the publishing contract, Addison!! :) Sush an inspiration.

Will you (or allowed to?) disclose the terms of your contract, or how much they aquired the three-book contract for? If not, no worries. Mostly interested to see where the market is heading in terms of publishers picking up self-published titles.

Addison Moore said...

Niyla M :-) - Hi Niyla! The contest is run through rafflecopter. Simply put in your email in the box in the post above. That's it! Good luck to you!

Kelly W - Thank you! I'm super happy to be working with Skyscape. I'm not allowed to discus the terms, but I will say that it was the best offer on the planet and the advance was pretty sweet, too. I think indies can officially have their cake and eat it, too. ;)

Nancy Rodriguez said...

I can not wait for the book...I need to know who she picks..Im all for Gage..I have read all your books and Love them all. Congrats on all your new and upcoming events. I will follow them all...Any hints when it will be released??
