RIPPER launch & giveaway (updated with winner)

My friend, Amy Carol Reeves, is having an extra special Easter Sunday as today is also the official release day for her debut young adult novel, Ripper. (Congratulations, Amy!)

A Jack-the-Ripper mystery with a paranormal twist that I never saw coming, Ripper is the beautifully written story of Arabella Sharp, a strong, independent young woman who is well ahead of her Victorian time. As Abbie tries to figure out who the Ripper is while also trying to protect herself and those she cares about, she discovers the truth about her mother and herself (oh, and also falls in love with two hotties along the way). Amy strikes a perfect balance between fast-paced action that kept me turning the page and detailed, imagery-filled settings that made me feel as though I were seeing the world through Abbie's eyes. My only complaint about the book is that it ended... good thing Amy has been hard at work on the sequel!


One lucky reader will receive a SIGNED copy of Ripper (shipped after the signing on April 21; U.S. residents only). Each of the following will enter you into the giveaway, for a total of seven entries. To complete your entry(s), leave me a comment on this post letting me know which of the following you have done; please include your handles/usernames as appropriate.


Entries must be received by noon EST on Sunday, April 15. The winner will be chosen and announced later that day. Good luck!

Entries are now closed. The winner is the sixth entry, belonging to Sarabeth - congratulations!
