To add a little personal reminiscing into this celebration, I remember finding Kate's blog in early 2012, when she did her first cover reveal for TASTE. I remember going, WOW! What an awesome cover!
...And immediately going to check out Crescent Moon Press and all the great paranormal books they publish. I remember saying to myself, "Boy, I can't wait to read this book," at the same time I was thinking, "I wonder if they would like my mermaid book?"
A year later, I'm helping Kate celebrate her novel's first birthday, and eagerly anticipating the "birth" of my own Crescent Moon Press novel. It's been a wonderful year for me, and getting to know Kate and all the other wonderful CMP authors has been a great part of it all.
To celebrate her novel's birthday, Kate is giving away prizes: first prize is a $30 Amazon gift card, $20 for second, and $10 for third. All the details are on Kate's blog at www.kateevangelista.com
How do you enter? Take a picture of the most interesting place where you read TASTE, either paperback or on your ereader. Questions? Full details on how to submit your entries are on Kate's blog. She'll announce winners on May 11th - so you have a few days to get creative and enter to win! Good luck!!!
And... this is a blog hop. Make sure to visit and celebrate with other bloggers on the tour!
About the book:
At Barinkoff Academy, there’s only one rule: no students on campus after curfew. Phoenix McKay soon finds out why when she is left behind at sunset. A group calling themselves night students threaten to taste her flesh until she is saved by a mysterious, alluring boy. With his pale skin, dark eyes, and mesmerizing voice, Demitri is both irresistible and impenetrable. He warns her to stay away from his dangerous world of flesh eaters. Unfortunately, the gorgeous and playful Luka has other plans.
When Phoenix is caught between her physical and her emotional attraction, she becomes the keeper of a deadly secret that will rock the foundations of an ancient civilization living beneath Barinkoff Academy. Phoenix doesn’t realize until it is too late that the closer she gets to both Demitri and Luka the more she is plunging them all into a centuries old feud.
About the Author:
When Kate Evangelista was told she had a knack for writing stories, she did the next best thing: entered medical school. After realizing she wasn’t going to be the next Doogie Howser, M.D., Kate wandered into the Literature department of her university and never looked back. Today, she is in possession of a piece of paper that says to the world she owns a Literature degree. To make matters worse, she took Master’s courses in creative writing. In the end, she realized to be a writer, none of what she had mattered. What really mattered? Writing. Plain and simple, honest to God, sitting in front of her computer, writing. Today, she has four completed Young Adult novels.
