Check this out. Bree Despain's upcoming book, The Dark Divine. Doesn't it just make you want to reach out and grab it? I, for one, would love to know the story that lies in wait behind the cover. Especially after reading a blurb like this:
“Reading THE DARK DIVINE feels almost like following a trail of moonlight into the heart of a forest at midnight--at once spooky and compelling. Bree Despain takes familiar myths and legends and wraps them elegantly around a haunting story of love, loss, family and forgiveness. Beautiful.” -- Lesley Livingston, author of Wondrous Strange
But, for most us (like me), that means waiting until the book comes out in December. December 22, 2009.
HOWEVER, there is a way to get lucky. I.E. you may be able to snag an advance reader's copy (ARC). Get the story before everyone else. How cool is that? You'd be able to brag and tell all your friends how good it is, but too bad, they'll have to wait, unless of course, you can be bribed to lend personal ARC for pastries and chocolate.
Sounds great, doesn't it? So, how do you put yourself in such a position?
Go to Bree's website, and follow her. Watch for the monthly countdown-contest give-aways. Let your friends know they should do it, too. It's that simple. If you're linking there from here, be sure to drop her a comment and let her know I got you into the loop. And good luck! My fingers are crossed for both me and you!
