Spread the Awesome – Splendor Falls

I’m back! First, let me thank you for the kind words and offers to beta read. I got loads done, and I plan to take many of you up on your offers soon.

Today I have the chance to participate in one of the coolest blog parties I’ve ever been a part of.

An amazing group of bloggers is spreading the awesome by telling you what books you simply have to read. Many of them are even giving away the books. So check out the list here on Elana Johnson’s blog, and maybe you’ll learn a thing or two. Heck, you might even WIN something!

That’s right, it’s like a MEGA Super Books That Rock!

And so, without further delay, I give you one of my favorite young adult books:

The Splendor Falls

by Rosemary Clement Moore

This is a classic ghost story.

There are so many reasons I love this book, it’s scary when it needs to be, hilarious when you’ve had enough of the scary, and so sad at times it will make you cry (but in a totally good way.) The main character is a ballerina who can’t dance. She gets shipped off to Alabama where her deceased father’s family history ends up being more present than past.

Are you hooked yet?

You so should be.

The author, Rosemary Clement Moore, isn’t just any regular author either, she’s also my mentor. She’s been there for me every step on my publishing journey, and has talked me off a ledge more than once. I’m so lucky to have her, and so are you guys, because she’s giving away an autographed copy of Splendor Falls to one of my readers!

Wait, you missed that. Here, let me say it again:

Rosemary Clement Moore is giving away an autographed copy of Splendor Falls RIGHT HERE on this blog!
