Hazardous Universe Book Launch

I had never heard of author Julie Wright until LTUE 2010 (last year and my first time attending). She kept talking about this one book that I could not wait to read called Hazardous Universe.  I remember clearly even now Julie’s bubbly personality and I loved hearing what she had to say about writing. I knew I wanted to read a book by her.  But as it usually goes for me, I never did.  Now I am going to get my chance because Hazardous Universe will be here in just a few days.  There is even a launch party that I wish I could go to, but just because I can’t doesn’t mean YOU can’t!


The book launch is at Barnes & Noble Booksellers, Murray UT. On the corner of 5300 S and State St on Wednesday, March 9th from 6-8 pm.


Julie and coauthor Kevin Wasden will be there to sign books and be part of other wonderful festivities.  I am super excited that the book is here.  It is the first in a series and I think it has a pretty fabulous cover.


I have said it before and I will say it again, here in Utah we are so very lucky to have so many talented local authors.  It is great to have opportunities to celebrate their books with them.  I hope that Kevin and Julie have a wonderful night.  If you end up going to the book launch please let me know and take a few pictures for me.

Silver Phoenix Contest Update

I am so happy that there have been so many entries into my giveaway for Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon. Unfortunately these entries also broke my commenting system on the entry post.  But not to worry, I have email copies of all the entries.   I did want to clarify a few points of the giveaway and add some other details.


The giveaway is for 5 copies of Silver Phoenix. While I am excited for the release of Fury of the Phoenix, I do not have any copies of the book to giveaway at this time.



As long as Book Depository ships to your country this giveaway is open internationally.  While at least one copy of the book will be awarded through random drawing, other copies of the book can be awarded at any time for any reason.


Here is a list of the entrants so far, if you think you have entered but don’t see your name on the list, please go to the original post and comment again using the blogger comment system.  If you would like to be entered into the giveaway and have not entered previously please comment on the original post. Not this one.
