Reviews, News and Twitter Trends!

2 weeks and 4 days to go! Yes, I am starting to freak out slightly at the thought of my book being out in the world… so it's been reassuring to see some great reviews for ACID starting to come in.

Eventide Reads said: This is one brilliant action adventure story. Perfect for fans of fast paced action and for those who love some Dystopian… If you liked books such like City of Bones, Throne of Glass or Divergent/Insurgent, I suggest you check this book out when it comes. It's not to be missed!

Daydreaming Bookworm said:
With a bad ass heroine like Lara Croft and a fast paced plot like Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider series, ACID is one debut that you definitely must keep an eye on when it comes out!

And over on Goodreads, Kirsty at The Overflowing Library said: A fab story, a kick-ass heroine and nail biting read set in an all too realistic world which will keep you on the edge of your seat from the first to the last page.


In other news, my new group blog, Author Allsorts, has officially launched - hooray! Head on over there to see the full list of Allsorts on our Authors and Illustrators page. We're also running a MEGA book giveaway, with a prize pack of 20 books to go to one lucky winner, including a signed copy of ACID. The giveaway is international and runs until the end of April, so if you haven't already, head on over there now to enter!

Books I'm excited about at the moment: Fletcher Moss's THE POISON BOY, which released last week, and Kit Grindstaff's THE FLAME IN THE MIST, which is out on Tuesday. Can't wait to read these - they both sound SO good!

Other stuff I'm excited about at the moment: there's going to be ACID postcards in cinemas! I'm not sure which cinemas, but if you see Jenna when you're out and about, please tweet me a photo (@EmmaPass)!

And finally… The Lucky 13s took part in a Book Blitz on Twitter yesterday, where people tweeted page numbers at us and we tweeted lines from our books back. If you want to see all the awesome, look for the hashtag #bookblitz. At one point, we were the top Twitter trend in the US!

Probably the only time I will trend in anything, ever.
Happy weekend, everyone!
