A Call for Blog Tour Participants: Shadows

Dear Readers,

You are invited to join Paula Weston on her North American blog tour! She had a lovely UK blog tour earlier this year, but it’s time for North America to experience the Rephaim series! Here’s what some of the bloggers had to say about Shadows:

Shadows by Paula Weston is one of the best YA novels I have ever read.” – Dark Readers
“Honestly, it’s one of the best paranormal/angel books I’ve ever read.” – Wondrous Reads
Shadows stands out in a crowded market of YA books about angels and is an impressive debut novel from Paula Weston.” – Feeling Fictional

So what is a blog tour?
Similar to an author tour where the author travels from store to store across the country, a blog tour is when a series of blogs post about the book during a consecutive number of days.

What do I need to participate?
Three small things! First of all, you will need a blog. Second, a love for reading. Third, a commitment to post on your scheduled blog tour date.

OK, tell me about the book . . .
Written by Paula Weston
Hardcover | 400 Pages
Pub Date: September 10, 2013
ISBN: 978-1-77049-547-0
eBook: 978-1-77049-549-4
It’s almost a year since Gaby Winters watched her twin brother die.
In the sunshine of a new town her body has healed, but her grief is raw and constant.
It doesn’t help that every night in her dreams she fights and kills hell-beasts.
And then Rafa comes to town. Not only does he look exactly like the guy who’s been appearing in Gaby’s dreams, he tells her things about her brother and her life that cannot be true, things that are dangerous.
Who is Rafa?
Who are the Rephaim?
And who is Gaby?

How can I help during the blog tour?
As a participating blogger, you will be sent a finished copy of Shadows to read. On your assigned posting date, please schedule the post about the book for tour followers to see.

Option 1: Book Review
On your tour date, post your review of the book.

Option 2: Author Interview
Send in some questions for Paula to answer. On your tour date, post the interview on your blog.

Option 3: Guest Post
You can provide a topic or Paula will come up with her own. She’ll send you the text/images and on your tour date, post it on your blog.

We will be promoting the blog tour by sharing your link on our own blog here, our facebook page, and twitter. Paula will also be sharing your posts on her website, facebook, and twitter page. We would greatly appreciate it if you could help spread the word too! Feel free to post your reviews on Goodreads, LibraryThing, or online retailers.

When is the blog tour?
The blog tour will be starting on Monday, September 16, 2013 and ending on Friday, September 20, 2013.

Where do I sign up?
We have temporarily closed the sign-up form. The response has been amazing so we almost have a full roster now! But if you want to check if there’s still room, you can e-mail me the following with your answers:
1.) Your choice of dates between September 17, 19, or 20, 2013. (Your top two picks in case the first date becomes full. There’s only 1 spot left on those dates. Monday and Wednesday are FULL.)
2.) Your blog’s name and URL. And your twitter account, if you have one.
3.) Which of the three options you prefer.
4.) Your mailing address for us to send the book to.

You can e-mail me (sychan@randomhouse.com) or leave a comment below if you have any questions. Thank you!


PS: Trust me, this is one book you don’t want to miss! And the second book, Haze, will be releasing September 2014!
