beyond our stars small I have to wish a fantastically happy book birthday to debut author Marie Langager, whose wonderful young adult science fiction novel BEYOND OUR STARS, released today as part of Bloomsbury Spark’s launch line.  So exciting!

Cover Copy:

Fleeing a destroyed Earth, seventeen-year-old orphan Hope grew up living in the confines of a spaceship heading to CR-3, a new home planet. She’s been kicking the steel walls for too long and ever since she broke her boyfriend’s heart, touchdown could mean open air and a fresh start. But no one expected the Locals.

Hope’s dreams of freedom turn into nightmares when the Locals trap the humans and mark groups for observation. At any moment she can be called into a holographic observation room for testing. Some days she’s drowning in a strange dark ocean, some days she’s locked up without food, and all with the one boy she can’t seem to forget.

As the Locals study Hope, she studies them. She wants to believe the tall grey creatures could be peaceful, but as the simulations become more dangerous, Hope is about to become the human race’s last chance for survival.

Bookklovr22 from Twitter is the winner of the Fangtastic get caught reading contest!  Her B&N gift card is right now winging its way to her.

To celebrate the official release date for Fangtastic (today – yay!), I’m starting a brand new Spread the Love contest, open until Valentine’s Day.

There are a ton of ways to win:

-blog, tweet, Facebook or whatever your favorite line from any of the Vamped books

-blog, tweet, Facebook or whatever a slogan or tagline with a link to the series page

-repost the Vamped series music video to help spread the word

-post a new and honest review for any book in the series on your own blog or any bookseller site (B&N, Amazon, Powells, etc.)

Do all or any of the above.  Each thing gets you one entry, so you can enter as many times as you’d like, just let me know so that I can keep track or send me the tally by Valentine’s Day.  Winner will be chosen February 15th.  Prize: the lightweight 6” Kindle with case for one lucky winner, chosen at random.  Open to US entrants only (sorry!).

Wondering about slogans?  For Vamped I had: Vamped…eternity needs an entourage.

For Revamped…undead or undercover, fangs are always in fashion.

For Fangtastic, I’ve been playing with a few, but nothing’s really struck me yet, so please feel free to come up with your own!  Here’s what I have so far:

Doomsday dresses, disappearances and…death?  Get Fangtastic in 2012!

Secret missions, minions and murder…absolutely Fangtastic!

Most importantly, the series is all about fangs and fun.  I wish you both in 2012!  I hope you enjoy and enter as often as you like.  Let me know about it via the contact form on my website or directly at LucienneDiver @ gmail.com (removing the spaces before and after the @).
