FREE Key of Kilenya eBook! + Giveaway! (Guest Post)


Hi, Everyone!  My name  is Andrea Pearson, and I'm thrilled to announce that my book.  The Key of Kilenya was published today as an eBook!!

I'm sooo excited about this book and to hear what other people think of it! It is a young adult fantasy, geared to people age 12 and older, including adults (who also love it). If you want to see me describe the book, watch this YouTube video:



It's similar to Harry Potter, Fablehaven, and the Pendragon series. Geared to those age groups, and full of magic! All of the fantasy creatures are made up – never having been used before, since they're from my imagination. :-)

A couple of cool tidbits:
It has received attention from movie studios and will most likely be made into a movie in a few years!  It was read by three well-known NY Times Bestselling Authors who were positive it would be a bestseller.  It's the first book of six.

As a way to engage people and help spread the word, I've decided not to put a price to the eBook for the next few weeks. If you have an ereader, go to my book page on Smashwords to download it for free (the print version will be available in a few weeks, albeit not for free :-)):

GIVEAWAY:

I'm also putting on a contest to celebrate the release of this book  and to help spread the word. The deadline for the contest is June 30th, so only two days away. It has been going on for about two weeks now, but anyone can enter at any time.

The prizes for the contest are amazing! They include:
$25 Amazon gift card
Earrings (I'll be making them - they'll have key(s) on them. :-))
My entire Kilenya Series on eBook for FREE (That's six free eBooks!! Book two is coming out in August)
Me to read, edit, offer opinion on first 4 pages of a beginner writer's manuscript (Word Document, double spaced)
Necklace with a key on it - made especially for the winner (there won't be other necklaces like it in the whole world)
Hair flowers – made by me
Autographed, personalized copy of my book (when the physical version is available)
$10 iTunes gift card
Karen Hoover's eBook
The Sapphire Flute (AMAZING!!! I just finished reading it and loved it!)
Jenni James' book
Pride and Popularity - autographed, personalized. (It's coming out mid-July) This book is REALLY making waves right now. I've read it and a few of her other books. She's an excellent author! Her books are modern re-writes of Jane Austen's stories.
A drawing from James E. Curwen (the illustrator for my books) YOUR CHOICE
A drawing from James E. Curwen HIS CHOICE

So, as you see, there are plenty of awesome things to win.  And the more people who enter, the more of the above prizes will be available.

Because you'll be joining in on the fun a little late, some of your entries may be different from what others have done. Entries come from: reading my book and answering questions about the chapters, helping me spread the word about my book, and helping spread the word about other people's books.

If you only have time to do a few entries, please choose those that'll help me tell other people about The Key of Kilenya.

If you and your children all want to enter, that's fine, just so long as you enter separately, and don't count one task for all of you—each person needs to complete the tasks on their own.

One more thing to note: you'll find a lot of references to the website Wattpad. It's the world's largest online community for readers and writers, and they've been helping me promote my story. (For free – yeah, they're amazing. :-))

If you'd like to learn more about me, you can visit my author page on Smashwords.

Thank you for reading, and I look forward to getting to know you!

Andrea
