Stain chosen as a YALSA 2020 Amazing Audio Book for Young Adults!

Thank you to @actor_TIMBRUCE and his incomparable vocal talents for helping #Stain’s audiobook become an official selection of #YALSA’s 2020 Amazing Audiobooks for Young Adults! From the YALSA (a national association of librarians, library workers and advocates) website: “Each year, YALSA’s Amazing Audiobooks Team selects and annotates an annual list of notable audio recordings significant to young adults from those released in the past two years.”

Check out the image to read a quick review of my #gothicfairytale and the reviewer’s thoughts on Tim Bruce’s incredible performance. If you haven’t read Stain yet, or if you’ve already read it and are up for a reread, consider the audio version. It elevates the experience to a whole new level, as Tim brings my characters to life exactly how I heard them in my mind; we carefully collaborated on each POV’s personality/vernacular/voice and the finished product is #unique, entertaining and #magical! If you’d like to hear an #excerpt or for ordering info, follow this link: https://stainbyaghoward.blogspot.com/p/audio-book.html

So if you’re needing a #prettybook to snuggle with during the chilly #January days and nights, be sure to pick this one up. 📚 As an added bonus, the paperback version of my #gothic #fairytale #fantasy hybrid includes #Morpheus’ prequel story, #AlicetheAbsent (not available for purchase in any other format). 🦋🎩

I’ll drop in again later this month to share some information on the new #urban #YAfantasy I’m working on. Until then, happy reading to all!

***Alice the Absent Announcement and Giveaway Celebration***

I’m finally able to announce that the paperback version of Stain—coming out in Jan 2020—will include the full Alice the Absent short story! (SIDE NOTE: The short story will be available ONLY through the paperback version … not the hardback or the ebook.)

This means anyone who buys the paperback will also own the Morpheus origin tale I wrote a little over a year ago! Stain’s paperback will be available everywhere domestically, and also via Book Depository (dot com). So if you’re a foreign reader, you can purchase the English version through their online store. Win-win for everyone!

And on the note of winning, to celebrate the fantastic news, I’m having a giveaway for the set pictured here: a signed Stain & Alice the Absent mashup poster + limited edition Alice the Absent booklet.

GIVEAWAY GUIDELINES: This is INTL, so anyone can win! To enter, help me get the word out about Stain’s paperback by tagging three people in the comments on this InstaGram post here. Giveaway ends Sunday, November 24th.

Good luck to everyone, and have a frabjous November!
