Lullaby Sneak Peak + Giveaway

Wake has been out for a week, and I can’t thank you guys enough for all your support. You guys are all amazing.

Lullaby is the sequel to Wake, and it’s coming out November 27, 2012 – so just over 3 months from now. The ARCs are already out, which means I have something fun for the giveaway, and I’ve decided to do a Teaser Tuesday with Lullaby, revealing a few select lines from it.

If you’re not familiar, here’s the trailer for the whole Watersong series:

Here’s the cover and description for Lullaby:

    Harper only wanted a safe, normal life. But when her younger sister Gemma runs off with a dangerous clique of beautiful girls, everything changes. Vowing to get her sister back no matter what the cost, Harper must face dangers unlike any she’s ever experienced. Fortunately, she has Daniel by her side, a gorgeous guy who’s devoted to helping her find her sister—and who’s immune to the girls’ dark powers.
    While Harper searches for her sister, Gemma struggles to adjust to her new life. Gemma’s powers are growing by the day, and the longer she lives with her new “sisters,” the harder it is to resist entering their magical world. It’s a realm both dark and beautiful, and where she’s plagued by strange hungers and unspeakable needs. Just as she’s drifting far away from her old life, Harper and Daniel find her…but no one can deny how much she’s changed. All she wants is to return to her family and the mortal world, but how can she do that when she’s become something else entirely—and will they still love her once they learn the truth?

Music plays a really important role both within the Watersong story and when I’m writing. This is the soundtrack for Lullaby:

  1. Florence + the Machine – “Spectrum”
  2. Agnes Obel – “Riverside”
  3. Black Lab – “Remember (acoustic)”
  4. Crystal Castles – “Not in Love”
  5. Death Cab for Cutie – “Transatlanticism”
  6. Fefe Dobson – “Can’t Breathe”
  7. Foo Fighters – “Everlong (acoustic)”
  8. Frou Frou – “Let Go”
  9. Helene – “Where Do You Go to When You Disappear”
  10. Lana Del Rey – “Video Games”
  11. Nico Vega – “Iron Man”
  12. Regina Spektor – “Samson”
  13. Ryan Adams – “Do I Wait”
  14. Sia – “Breathe Me”
  15. Stars – “Your Ex-Lover is Dead”
  16. The xx – “Islands”
  17. Kathleen Edwards – “A Soft Place to Land” 
  18. Yeah Yeah Yeahs – “Runaway”

And finally, here is the teaser from Lullaby:

    As she was washing her hair, something tangled in her fingers. She pulled her hand out to inspect it in the ever brightening morning light. It was a whole clump of her own hair, and Gemma yelped in shock.

    She reached up and touched her head. Without even really trying, another chunk of hair fell out.

I’m giving away TWO autographed copies of Lullaby. Enter in the Rafflecopter below. The giveaway runs until August 25th. And it’s international! So enter away.
