This month I hit up a good friend of mine to provide the New to You Book (and prize). Kristi and I met as debut authors, both writing very different genres than we do now. This month, September 2013, Kristi’s third young adult novel is out… and it has vampires. :)
Young Adult Fiction
What is your book about?
ETERNAL is the third and final book in the Winterhaven series, which follows Violet McKenna as she enters the Winterhaven School–a school where everyone has psychic abilities. At Winterhaven, she meets the mysterious Aidan Gray and learns how their destinies are linked.
What type of reader would your book appeal to most?
Readers who enjoy paranormal romance along the lines of Twilight or Vampire Academy

Violet McKenna is the main character. She wants to learn how to put her psychic ability to good use, and how to keep the horrible visions she sees from coming true.
What movies or other books would you compare your book to and why?
People inevitably compare the series to the Twilight books (for obvious reasons!).
How is your book different than other books in the same genre?
The series features a mix of both psychic elements and paranormal creatures, along with a strong female protagonist.
Does your book have romance in it? If so how important is it to the story?
There is a very strong romantic subplot running throughout the series. The romance is pretty important to the story, as the heroine’s destiny is linked to the story’s main love interest’s.
Is your book part of a series? If so what are the other books (in order) in the series and will there be more?
ETERNAL is the final book in the Winterhaven series, following HAVEN and MIRAGE.
If your book is part of a series, should readers read the books in order?

Would you be willing to supply a prize for one reader? (Please list limitations, etc.)
