It’s release day for my author buddy/fellow Lucky/fellow Thirteener Erin Bowman and her YA debut, TAKEN! Congratulations, Erin, and thank you for writing such an awesome book. I really loved the dystopian world of TAKEN and can’t wait to pick up my own copy so I can read it again!

Um, so this is pretty perfect.
Poor Liam is getting his ass kicked! But… uh, even I go swoony with Perry.
Hey guys! Did you know TheDarkestMinds.com exists? And that there’s a very long excerpt of the book on said site? And that there’s a neat little Easter Egg of sorts on the front page (hint: radio, double hint: press play), and that both playlists are up on there? And that I’ve been slowly adding content to what I call the “World” page, which gives you a visual look at what their world looks like?
Now, I know there are some SUPREMELY crafty types here on Tumblr. If you ever create any original art, or you’re interested in contributing to the page either through a letter, a photograph, or manipulating an image (you must own said image or it must be a free stock image), definitely send it to me! Basically the idea is to put yourself in the place of these kids, or to play around with actual content from the book (like quotes, for instance)I already have a few reader submitted letters up and they are COOL! (Most of them have secret messages embedded in them!) If you contribute something, I will MAKE SURE you get something in return—and that likely is a shout-out in NEVER FADE’s acknowledgments and/or a very early look at NEVER FADE itself.
P.S. Those book reviews are actually up on Amazon if you want to look for them. It makes me laugh every time someone finds them “helpful.”
P.P.S. I’m hoping that the Pinterest-like plug-in is eventually updated so that you can reblog the photos onto Tumblr in addition to Twitter and Pinterest and Google+.#The Darkest Minds #Never Fade #Alexandra Bracken #Free ebooks #free ebook #YA lit #Young Adult #Books #Lit
When we were working on the cover for GRAVE MERCY, this was one of the mock ups the publisher put together. It’s illustrated by Phroilan Gardner, who does amazing artwork for computer games and whatnot. Even though we didn’t use it, I have so much love for this version.
Oooh, I love this, too! Really like her hair and the leathery bodice. Although the final cover IS gorgeous. (As is the book. Go read it if you haven’t, Tumblr Peeps!)
Oh man, I love this one, too! I pretty much just love this book in general, though.
