DRAWN Now out in Paperback Too!

And so the journey really begins… My new paranormal YA novel Drawn is now not only available in ebook but in paperback too!  That means that you can now go into your favorite bookstore and order your very own copy, or you can order it online through Amazon by clicking here!  In case you don’t already know, this novel is about a teen artist who draws and then meets and falls for a hot medieval ghost. Yowza.

You can do a lot to make this novel successful by purchasing it now, instead of later.  Sales that happen all at once push the book into a higher ranking, more people notice it then, and buy it, and so on!  (Same goes for the ebook sales…so whatever form you purchase, now is better than later…for ebook purchase info, click here.)

To celebrate this new publication, I’m currently hosting a Drawn paperback giveaway over at Goodreads.com. Up for grabs are 5 autographed copies of Drawn, and all you have to do is enter to win by going here.

And on Tuesday, I’m kicking off my very first blog tour.  This is new territory for me, folks, and it promises to be VERY exciting.  The month-long Drawn Blog Ghost Tour includes stops at some of the hottest blog sites, and includes a range of interviews, reviews, guest posts and book giveaways!  First stop will be on Tuesday at Jonathan Maberry’s Big Scary Blog…with a post that will include a never before seen ghost photo.  NOT kidding. It’s freaky.  Check back throughout the month for all the tour highlights. And to haunt all the tour stops, you can find each blog tour detail and link by clicking here.

So now Drawn is officially out in the world.  What a long, but wonderful journey it’s been.  Thanks so much to all my friends, readers and supporters for encouraging me along the way. This novel really means a lot to me, and I hope it will come to mean something to people who read it, too…

Thanks, all,

Marie

Red Hot News: OVER MY HEAD Comes Out Summer 2011!

Here’s some news I’ve been keeping under wraps for a while. But now I can finally spill…

Ever wonder what happened to Sang and her friends after WHAT I MEANT… finished?  Well, soon you’ll get your chance to find out.  The sequel, Over My Head, is scheduled to come out in a few months — just in time for summer!

I’m thrilled to say this book is already generating some praise, including this:

“Marie Lamba brings a fresh, new, and very authentic voice to this fabulous young adult novel. Coming of age has never been done so well!” — L.A. Banks, New York Times Best-selling author of The Vampire Huntress Legends series

Exciting things are happening every day, so check back often for updates, cover art, and special extras for this new summery novel! I promise to post stuff here as quickly as I can.

And here are some juicy details about Over My Head:

.

“I wish I could recreate myself – become somebody more exciting. Heroic. In love.”

Be careful what you wish for.

Sang Jumnal jumps into the summer before her senior year with big plans, and she really does get everything she wishes for…but not at all in the ways she’d planned.

She didn’t plan on facing her fear of swimming through a series of humiliating kiddy lessons, followed by a malicious push into the deep end.

Or falling hard for 20-year-old lifeguard Cameron Cerulli, who is either the guy of her dreams, or a player out to stomp on her heart.

Or fighting with her dad, who hates her every independent thought and who bans her from seeing Cameron.

Or discovering a huge secret her parents have been keeping—a secret about disappearing money and a rare disease that threatens someone very important to Sang.

Suddenly Sang’s summer is overflowing with excitement. There’s hysterical laughter, lots of family drama, heart-pounding passion, even a catfight. And she’s teetering on the dangerous brink of true love.

Will she sink or swim?

Over My Head is a steamy summertime novel filled with sticky situations and a twist that will melt your heart…

.

So that’s the big news for now. Can’t wait until the start of summer to start reading this novel?  In the meantime, you can check out an excerpt from the book by clicking here.

I’m so excited to finally share this work with everyone. Over My Head will be a perfect read for those lazy sultry summer nights. Details about where and when to buy it will be posted here soon.

This summer is going to sizzle!
