Famished Release Day & Borders Bonanza!!!!!!

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

So the day has finally arrived!!!! And let me just say that is has been crazy!!!

But it's official Famished has been released, yay!!!!

Tomorrow I'll be announcing the winners of the Famished giveaway!

There is no United States. There is no world. An asteroid has destroyed what the human race knew as earth and The Great Famine has wiped out most of the surviving human population. For the few remaining survivors, food is scarce-- precious--a luxury. A luxury that most humans can’t find.

Seventeen year old Georgina Carver is fortunate. She’s survived the destruction. She eats three times a day while the rest of humanity is plagued by The Great Famine. And she’s safe, hidden away in an underground colony with her family and several other families of survivors.

All of that changes the day she’s randomly selected to be a gatherer. Georgina must leave her safe yet simple world and venture out into a world unknown. A vast, dangerous, destroyed world that could literally eat her alive.

After Georgina is severely injured, her life begins to fall apart. She can’t remember how she got home or what happened to her while she was on the new earth. The boy she is crushing on avoids her and she keeps having visions that involve an unknown person with violet eyes.

As Georgina begins to unravel the truth, it doesn’t take her long to figure out that maybe her safe yet simple life isn’t that safe at all.

I did something a little different with Famished...

In the back of the book, are summaries and the first three pages of my next two novels. I thought that would be really cool... And unique.

Famished is available in ebook and paperback formats.

Ebook price~ 1.50 Paperback 9.99

Currently you can find the ebook on Barnes & Noble for the Nook. On Smashwords and Tomorrow morning on Amazon.com for the Kindle.

The paperback version will be out next week and available pretty much everywhere! YaY!

And now for the sad part Borders. :(

It's the only bookstore in my area. (B&N is 30 mins away.) And I felt like crying as walked through the store and noticed the empty cafe and half-full bookselves.

But.... Despite my depressed feeling, I did buy some pretty amazing books. And I'm hoping to get some more before the store shuts down.**Tear** Here's what I got....

1. The Fat Girl by: Marilyn Sachs(This is the one I'm currently reading.)
2. XVI by: Julia Karr ( I have heard nothing but great things about this one!)
3. The Goddess Test by: Aimee Carter (Where are all of my mythological re-telling lovers? I hope this doesn't disappoint!)
4. Rumors by: Anna Gobbersen (Yeah, I'm going to totally admit that I bought this book for the cover, but.... It sounds like a great read too!)

Check out Famished and some more of the awesome books I found!

Cheers!

    Congrats, Lauren! I can't wait to get my copy of Famished!

    I blogged about Borders closing today too. It was the only bookstore in my area. I'm pretty crushed. I have to go to NJ to buy books now! That's so insane.

  1. Congrats, Lauren!! So excited for you!
    Love the new blog look. (As a funny aside, Sheri & I both used to use the 1 column version of the background -- love it!)
