New Year 2013 Giveaway Hop

Written By: Kellie - Dec• 31•12

Happy (almost) New Year everyone. 2012 was amazing, and I’m convince that 2013 will be even better. To help kick off the new year, as well as my new blog, I am participating in the Happy New Year 2013 Giveaway hop and am giving away the chance to have a character named after you in my upcoming YA novel, Mortality.

Mortality is coming out in March of this year… so how is it this is even possible? It’s all through the beauty of self publishing. The book is already written and is currently being picked apart by my wonderful editor. The two characters I am looking for names for have already been written, and their fates are sealed. What they need are names. Both characters can be either male or female and can have any (non-joke) name.

PRIZE: Name a character in my upcoming YA zombie survival novel, Mortality (March, 2013) and one of the first physical copies of the book.

Reviewers: I am also still taking sign ups for the blog tour which will be running in March. Tour hosts will receive a digital copy of the book. If you’re interested, you can sign up here.

Details: After entering this giveaway via Rafflecopter, please comment with the following information.
Character Name:
Male or Female:
Brief physical description:

    Looks super interesting! Can’t wait to read it!

  2. […] I’ve already posted a couple of giveaways (which you can check out here, and here) this is my first official post on a brand new blog. Welcome to Snarky Bird Book Reviews. […]

  3. Pearl says:

    How about Misha Sakonawitz, female, a frail teenage girl with a bit of freckles on her face, medium height, and about shoulder length blonde hair.

  4. Sullivan McPig says:

    Female: Alma Potter, around 45 year old. Reed thin and very proper.

  5. Julie T. says:

    Character-Ruth, known as Mama Bear, mid-40’s, well read, with a wealth of practical bits of knowledge, fierce fighter for her family and those she deems family. Average height and weight, but recent events have made her “leaner and meaner”. Dark hair going grey, brown eyes.

  6. Holly Letson says:

    Holly Swisher. 30-something years old, but acts more like 18-20. Blue eyes and dark hair, but kinda on the short side. Loves her boyfriend very much, but lives a few thousand miles away from him, across the country actually. And, maybe she should have a secret that she cannot tell anyone else, like that she is always drawn to water because she’s actually from a long line of mermaids. Bonus points if she finds this out when her boyfriend pushes her into a lake in the park, while she is visiting him.

  7. Shar Simms says:

    Character: Kenzie
    Gender: Female
    Description: 17 year old, kick ass female (exceptional fighting skills and shows no fear). She is guarded and trusts no one. She has long dark brown hair and hazel eyes. She’s average height.
