The YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes!

**The YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes is now over**

Hi, Racers! Welcome to my stop on the YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes! You've arrived at the home of THE DARK LIGHT, a stop bulging with fantasy, romance, action, adventure, and suspense. Oh, and me. Sara Walsh.

PSA: If you've stumbled across this post by accident, and are wondering what on earth is going on, join in the fun and you could win a whole host of prizes from over 50 YA and MG authors whose novels debut this year. The official start of the race, prize details, rules, etc. can be found at the Apocalypsies website.

On with the race!

THE DARK LIGHT by Sara Walsh

Mysterious lights have flickered above Crownsville for as long as Mia can remember.  And as far as she’s concerned, that’s about the only interesting thing to happen in her small town.

That is, until Sol arrives. Mia’s not one to fall for just any guy, but she can’t get intense Sol—or the brilliant tattoo on his back—out of her mind.

Then Mia’s brother goes missing, and Mia’s convinced that Sol knows more than he’s sharing. But getting closer to Sol means reevaluating everything she once believed to be true. Because Sol’s not who Mia thought he was—and neither is she.

Okay? Need a second look?
Now hold on to everything you've read, because if you want to get your hands on the mega prizes, you'll be grilled at the end of this leg of the race.


What a chance for some extra goodies?  Because I'm also giving away:

  • Three signed copies of THE DARK LIGHT when we release on August 28th;
  • Five uber goody bags (bookmarks, stickers, signed cover prints, wristbands);
  • Plus, signed bookmarks to everyone who leaves a comment!
(open internationally)

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment (with an email address) telling me one thing:
What's your favorite candy bar?

You'll receive bonus entries if you:

  • Follow me on Twitter (T)
  • Add THE DARK LIGHT to your Goodreads shelves (G)
  • Give some love to my brand new, super shiny Facebook page (F)

Just use the codes in your comments to tell me what you did. One bonus point each for a follow, an add, and a like!

And if you need a place to use your bookmark, don't forget that you can pre-order THE DARK LIGHT at the following establishments:
