Giveaway Announcements - Watch, Gift Card, & eBooks

The day I met you is the day by which all others will be measured - Levi Ian Bryson

Without question, this particular 'Levi musing' appears to be everyone's favorite.

The significance of the watch and the giveaway can be summed up with this heartfelt claim... and the way it was inscribed (in a circular fashion much like the illustration to the left) onto the back of the watch Levi left Emily before he went to stop Lorenzo.

I can absolutely tell you that this has been quite the whirlwind month. I've gone from 250 Facebook Fan Page LIKES to 1,250+  and increased my Fans/Friends/Followers by hundreds. On top of all of that, I've sold tons of books and actually made it to the top 1,750 of all books being sold on Amazon. While there's still a ways to go, these are all great starts when you consider the fact that I completely switched genre's with Grave Bound's debut (meaning I had to attract a whole new set of fans, ones who are very picky about their New Adult books).

Please Note: Every single person who entered the Michael Kors giveaway received an eBook copy of Grave Bound

So far, Grave Bound's reviews/reviewers have been positive. I've included a few of my favorite comments:
"...Not only is it a great story and beautifully writen but the emotion behind it is amazing...."
"OMG, OMG, I have never loved a book so much. I couldn't put it down. Tope, Levi and Em are wonderful characters...."
I loved this book and did not want to put it down!!! It is such a unique story...it really grabbed my attention right away. I became so emotionally involved in it I found myself yelling at my kindle and crying at times too. I highly recommend this book and can't wait for the next one in the series to come out!!!
"The day I met you is the day by which all others will be measured" -L.I.B.
"... The author is very clever in the way she writes; there are so many twists and turns – Grave bound will keep you glued to the very last page!.... I am happy to say that I am completely 100% hooked on this series, and I can’t wait for the next novel – Underground (Secrets #2) to be released!"
".... Like any WELL WRITTEN novel – it’s complete with twist and turns and unexpected events!
The characters of this novel are so very well written. I honestly felt complete RESENTMENT for Lorenzo & just about every emotion I could towards Emily. I’ve read many, many books in my life – but this one pulled more emotions out of me than any book has in awhile! Grave Bound is one of those books that sinks its teeth into you from page one and doesn't let you go until the very end. AND THEN – it leaves you wanting MORE! I cannot wait until the next book to see what happens!"
"I am glad I got started at the very beginning of this series, it was so emotionally powerful I couldn't stop being draw into the storyline. It does handle some mature topics as amazon warns but it is done very well and not just for sensational purposes. I can't wait to read the next in the series."
"Omg I haven't cried this much since I read the fault in our stars." AND "People I am telling you go buy this book now! It is the most amazing book in the entire world...dare I say it? Dare I? IT IS BETTER THAN THE HUNGER GAMES PEOPLE! (And you all know how obsessed I am with THG.)"
"@WarriorsSeries Just finished reading Grave Bound! Omg that book was amazing! I need book2 ASAP! Thank you so much!"
