The YAmazing Race is CLOSED!!!

It’s that time again! So begins the YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes, a massive blog hop featuring over 50 debut authors, and prize packs that include books, gift certificates, swag, and more! If you haven’t yet been to the Apocalypsies website, please click here to start from the beginning and read the complete rules.

Now on to the race!


"Dark, demented, and edgy, with just the right amount of humor and romance mixed in, Daniel Marks has written the afterlife like you've never seen it before."
-Richelle Mead, New York Times Bestselling Author of VAMPIRE ACADEMY

Dead at 16. Kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. Bound to an ashen purgatory. Velveteen Monroe has a job to do and a revolution to quash, which doesn't leave much time to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. But she'll make time.

All work and no play makes Velveteen a dull girl.

Unfortunately, her haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory, jeopardizing her very soul and that of an unreasonably hot and off-limits co-worker and, worse, may actually be aiding the Departurists in their nefarious revolution. Velveteen can't help herself when it comes to breaking rules...or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.

"Squicktastic! VELVETEEN has it all: a ghost hell-bent on revenge, a wickedly hot dead boy and an underworld revolution - I couldn't get enough!"
- Kimberly Derting, Author of THE BODY FINDER series

To order a copy of VELVETEEN now, click here for the deets!

Got it? Good. 

There'll be a quiz at the end of the race (or four quizzes, as the case may be), so keep notes...or whatever. Because the prizes are, like Jem and the Holograms, Truly Outrageous. Pro-tip: you can always jump back here to find the answer, we're not mean...just evil.

But wait...

...there's more! In addition to the copy of Velveteen and swag you can win as part of the YAmazing Race, I'm doing something...Terrible. I'm going to vandalize a copy of Velveteen especially for one winner of my own private contest. Vandalism, you ask? Isn't that bad? (you may have read it is, but not on my walls)

 It could be anything, but I'll tell you I'm not above graffiti, stabbing, etc. It'll be amazing, certainly. Readable? I can't guarantee it. You'll just have to see for yourself. The contest is open INTERNATIONALLY. Because I'm crazy like that. Also...soon to be broke--why is it so expensive???

So enter below (there are lots of ways!) and then click on to the next author on the blog hop!

It's time for you to move along to the next author in the race! I've got pumpkins to smash!

Next up: Nobody, since the race is OVER!!!

Personalized Books, Skeleton Keys and Changes

It's been a while since I've vlogged so I figured I better sine we're two days away from the release of Velveteen. In this episode, I tell you how to get your book personalized and signed, even if you can't make a West Coast event! Also, show off a cool giveaway necklace that's going to a lucky launch party attendee, and might become available later if people dig it and also some changes in the appearance schedule.
