Happy Release Day and Book Giveaway: Switched, a Trylle novel by publishing sensation, Amanda Hocking

Book One
Giveaway has ended as of 1/6/12

Hi guys! I'm happy to offer you a chance to get Switched, the first book in the Trylle series by Amanda Hocking. She's the twenty-something year old, self-published writer, that was so successful, a major publisher, St Martin's Griffin decided she was worth taking on! Now her books are getting a make-over and big push. Check out the books description...

When Wendy Everly was six years old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. Eleven years later, Wendy discovers her mother might have been right. She’s not the person she’s always believed herself to be, and her whole life begins to unravel—all because of Finn Holmes.

Finn is a mysterious guy who always seems to be watching her. Every encounter leaves her deeply shaken…though it has more to do with her fierce attraction to him than she’d ever admit. But it isn’t long before he reveals the truth: Wendy is a changeling who was switched at birth—and he’s come to take her home.

Now Wendy’s about to journey to a magical world she never knew existed, one that’s both beautiful and frightening. And where she must leave her old life behind to discover who she’s meant to become…

As a special gift to readers, this book contains a new, never-before-published bonus story, “The Vittra Attacks,” set in the magical world of the Trylle.

The publisher wants you to learn what make her stories so compelling. They're making a copy of her book available for one lucky winner, right here at Writing is A Blessing. If you'd like the chance to recieve it, just leave a comment telling me if you've ever heard of Hocking before or read any of her books. Thats all. Please don't forget to leave your email, so you can be contacted if you're the winner.

The giveaway is open to residents of the US and Canada only at publishers request. It ends Friday, January 6, 2012.

  6. This is so cool! I always wondered what Amanda Hocking was all about. I had heard about how she was so popular as an indie writer and earned more than big publisher authors did and all but never got a chance to read the books. Thanks for this chance!:)
