Indelibles on FIRE!

Winner of the Kindle Fire will be announced soon at the Indelibles blog.Contestants are being verified.

And the winner of THE LIAR SOCIETY by Lisa and Laura Roecker will be announced tomorrow!

Welcome to the Indelibles blog hop!

Marketing guru Shelli Johannes Wells has teamed up with twenty-four other indie and small press authors to brings you the Indelibles. (Yes, I’m one of them!)

Each week we’ll explore fun, fabulous, and fierce topics for today’s teens, drawing on pop culture and themes from the books we write. We’ll also be having a “blogger” chat and a writer/author chat to answer questions about self and indie pubbing. Details coming soon.

In celebration of our official launch, we are giving away a KINDLE FIRE! Woo hoo! Start at the Indelible writers blog. The contest runs from 12:01 a.m. Monday to 12:01 a.m. Thursday.

If you are mid-hop, then welcome to your next stop! By following the link at the bottom of this post, you can proceed to the next author (and check out the awesome, individual giveaways we are doing along the way!) If you are entering to win the KINDLE FIRE, don’t forget to make a note of the keyword at the end of every blog post – the words spell out a phrase you will need to enter the contest on the last stop.

And now a little bit about me.

Laura Pauling writes Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction where the real and the incredible combine for heart stopping and often root beer snorting adventures.

She lives her cover of suburban mom/author perfectly, from the minivan to the home-baked snickerdoodles, while hiding her secret missions and covert operations from the real world.

And her kids wonder what she does all day while they’re at school; or why on Monday mornings she’s a bit grumpy.

Living the life of a secret agent isn’t easy, but someone has to do it. But shh – don’t expose the truth to her friends and family.

This may or may not be what she really looks like.
And she may or may not actually bake cookies.

You decide.

Her debut YA novel will release in spring of 2012.

A SPY LIKE ME is a cat and mouse adventure full of spies, a nefarious pastry chef, and a completely innocent teen girl. Well, not completely innocent.

From the top of the Eiffel to the depths of the catacombs, Savvy Bent must sneak, deceive, and spy to save her family and friends and figure out whether Malcolm is one of the bad guys before she completely falls for him.

Check it out on Goodreads!
Connect with Laura on Twitter!

Wait! Did I forget something? Oh, yes. My giveaway. My SURPRISE giveaway open to the U.S. and Canada. Want some clues? Okay, fine. Paperback. Published in 2011. Young adult. Hilarious. pink hair. All you have to do is comment. Feel free to take a guess. Every day I’ll add a new clue until the contest is over Thursday at 12:01 a.m. You only have to comment once.

    Awesome to know, Laura. And I have a granddaughter whose nickname is Savy. I’m adding your book to my to-read list on Goodreads.

    Sounds like an awesome blog hop. And loved hearing about your book. I’m adding it to Goodreads.

    Hmm, I can’t even begin to guess ! All I need to know is Young Adult !

  5. Stina Lindenblatt January 9, 2012 at 12:27 pm #

    You’re grumpy come Monday mornings??? Not me. I’m usually doing a happy dance because the kids are back to school and I can write. Unfortunately that’s not the case today. Two of my three kids don’t start back until tomorrow. I’m probably going to be injuring myself tomorrow with all the happy dancing I’ll be doing. 😀

    I’m off to check out the new blog. Congrats on it, Laura!
