Calling girl


At Brenda Novak’s Diabetes Research Auction, you can win a phone call with me as well as signed, inscribed to you, copies of Starters and Enders and swag! Click here to see. This is international. We can discuss the books, or publishing, how to get an agent, etc. This ends at the end of the month, so the current bid is super low, but don’t wait to get your first bid in because Brenda picks some of the bidders for prizes. This is an amazing auction and you can also bid on agent or editor crits. Also, it is a tax-deductible charity!

Another contest is for signed bookmarks and a signed chapter sampler of STARTERS. This is unusual because it’s international. I get requests for bookmarks from international fans all the time but cannot send them because of the paperwork.  When I did my European tour last year, I didn’t have the current bookmarks, so the winner is going to be maybe the only person (outside of Canada) with them. Click here for the rafflecopter entry. 

Win ENDERS – IN PORTUGUESE, Brazilian rafflecopter here.

Win ENDERS – click here. This is also  international!

Only two days left on this one, win STARTERS and ENDERS, Canada and US only! Click here.

Take a look at this link: and navigate to BOOKS. You can see the trailer there or here, then come back here. I’ll wait.

Okay, you’ve seen the site and the 30 sec trailer? Great!

But – before you go – if you want to enter my extra side contest, then please list STARTERS as “to-read” on Goodreads by clicking on the icon with the “g” in tan box in the right sidebar  –>

One lucky winner from the GR list during this period will win a very hard to get, just-released, signed ARC of STARTERS!

    Very excited for the upcoming release of Starters. =)


  2. Thanks for the extra giveaway! Also, I loved the trailer and am intrigued? Dystopian? 🙂

    • Lissa says:

      Thanks so much for the nice comments! Yes, Lucia, it’s dystopian because it’s set in a future that’s gone wrong. But it’s also referred to as futuristic thriller because it’s fast-paced.

  3. good luck all

    Definitely trying for the ARC here, you got me intrigued (and the trailer is absolutely mind-blowing for a book!). I’m such a sucker for dystopian books. 😉 And I see it will come to my country as well, from what you wrote in the My Book page. Great!

    Good luck with your debut!

  8. Lissa says:

    Thanks so much, everyone! I really appreciate it. It’s really nice when you list what you did here.

    And I’m thrilled Starters will be in 20 countries (so far). Can’t wait to see the different covers.

  9. picyadri says:

    Why haven’t I heard of this book before? It looks really really good!
    And that cover is pretty, too! I am so glad it’s release is just 2 months away:)
    I followed you via email and twitter! (picyadri and picyadri at gmail dot com)
    And of course added your book on goodreads, and I can’t grasp the fact how this book slipped under my radar:)

    • Lissa says:

      The reason you haven’t heard of it before is because it has been on a fast track schedule. Bought in May to publish this March. But my publisher has big plans and you’ll be hearing a lot about it in the next couple of months.

      Glad you love the cover. It’s even prettier in person…

    I really liked the trailer! and the girls outfit! XD I know thats beside the point but still 😀

    • Lissa says:

      Actually, I’m really interested in your comment. Because it was the one thing that I wouldn’t have done. Callie has to survive on the streets in the beginning, so she’d definitely be in pants. But this is a trailer, not the movie. So it helps me to know that you liked the outfit. Thanks!
