TWISTED Tour Stop!

YA Fresh has been chosen to be one of the stops on Gena Showalter’s TWISTED tour! We’re delighted to participate, and to welcome new readers, who we hope will come back and visit us often!

If you're new to Gena's books, here's the 411 on TWISTED:

His vampire girlfriend might have brought him back to life, but he's never felt more out of control. There's a darkness within him, something taking over…changing him. Worse, because he was meant to die, death now stalks him at every turn. Any day could be his last.

Once upon a time, the three souls trapped inside his head could have helped him. He could have protected himself. But as the darkness grows stronger, the souls grow weaker—just like his girlfriend. The more vampire Aden becomes, the more human Victoria becomes, until everything they know and love is threatened.

Life couldn't get any worse. Could it?


How do you define the “Best Night Ever?” Does going on a mini shopping spree for a chic new outfit, dinner out with your bestie and seeing your favorite music act live in concert sound like it would do the trick? If so, read on!

To celebrate the release of, TWISTED, the third book in her Intertwined series featuring Aden Stone, Gena Showalter is rocking out with her author buds on The TWISTED Tour. The tour spans almost two weeks and 11 author websites, including this one, from August 22nd through September 2nd. The Grand Prize winner will be awarded all the essentials for a perfect night out, including:

- $250 Ticketmaster Gift Card
- $100 American Eagle Outfitters Gift Card
- $100 Visa Gift Card for Dinner
- Glam Urban Decay Makeup Gift Set

A Second Prize winner will receive an autographed set of Gena’s Intertwined series, including INTERTWINED, UNRAVELED and TWISTED.

HOW TO PLAY: Visit this page and check the tour schedule. Visit the sites of each author on their assigned tour date and locate the concert ticket image.

At the end of the tour, fill out the form on the aforementioned TWISTED Tour contest webpage by matching the images you found to the authors’ websites that they were located on before Sunday, September 4th at 11:59pm ET. The winners will be randomly drawn and notified on or around September 9th, 2011.

Good Luck and ROCK ON!

The topic of having the “Best Night Ever,” got me to thinking about what might have been my best teen night...

I finally settled on a dance under the stars the summer I was fourteen. There was a cute boy who I suddenly saw through different eyes as we danced the night away, but all these years later, that night is now less about him and more about me--how special I felt. In hindsight, I know the memories of that night got me through some of my “less-than-special” times to come...escalating it to my “Best Night Ever” in my teen years.

If you’d like to share a bit about your teenage “Best Night Ever,” please do in our comments!

It's probably like everyone else's but it was one friday night at a football game. The guy I liked finally came up and asked me out. All my friends had been telling him at school so he knew and he finally asked me out =) I remember really enjoying that night...It was like in 1994 =) Lol Gena rocks by the way! Thanks for the post
