Spensations: Spotlight On... Triangles


Hey Guys,
Yes... it is time for the first official Spensations post.
Yeah I know there's been a few already but those are just extras... today marks the first ever book spotlight and author interview.

So before we go onto that let me just announce the winners of the two previous Spensations giveaways....

The winner of the Spensations kick off giveaway is....
Lea Krnjeta

The winner of the Camp Boyfriend pre-order is...

Congratulations to the winners.... Keep reading for a new giveaway.

So this is how I plan on running Spensations every month. Any release day posts or cover reveals will still be posted under the Spensations banner... as well as reviews of SHP books but the main posts will come twice a month with features and interviews on upcoming books. I plan to post on the first and the 15th of the month. There will be one giveaway a month, not for the featured books but for the books released in the next month. They will be pre-order giveaways... so for example this months giveaway will be for a pre-order of the May releases. The winner can choose which one. I would love to do a giveaway of each book but unfortunately right now I cannot afford to. The giveaway will be posted on the first and the winner will be revealed during the post on the 15th...

Now let me introduce the first HOT PICK from Spencer Hill Press

Triangles
Kimberly Ann Miller

Published By: Spencer Hill Press
Due For Release: June 18, 2013
Genre: YA - Contemporary Fantasy

From Goodreads:
A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could possibly go wrong?

In the Bermuda Triangle—a lot.

Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life--her father's death years ago, her mother's medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her--seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she's gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they're a happy couple... a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying "Happy Anniversary"... and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship's doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she's warned that these "alternate realities" could become permanent.

She just has to ask herself one question—how the hell is she going to get out of this mess?

Now let me just say how excited I am for this book. It just sounds incredible doesn't it?
I haven't read a book about the bermuda triangle before so this will just be a completely new concept to me and I seriously cannot wait!

I mean what could possibly be better?
Two super hot guys? CHECK
A little bit of paranormal / fantasy? CHECK
Something fresh and different? CHECK... I mean how many books do you see on bookshelves right now about the bermuda triangle... it's just OMG awesome!

Now let's welcome the phenomenal author and my good friend... the wonderful Kimberly Ann Miller.

Hi Kim,

Thank you for being here on K-Books and joining me for this feature.


I am so happy to be here! You know all of us at Spencer Hill love you.


Well I am such a massive fan of Spencer Hill Press, including the new imprints Spence City and Spencer Hill Contemporary. What’s it like being a part of the amazing Spencer Hill Press family?


I absolutely love them! They are an amazing group of people. From the moment I submitted my book, they have been available, friendly, and helpful. I had the chance to meet several of the family at BEA – editors, authors, marketers – and they were so welcoming and fun! I can’t say enough good things about them! As a first time author, nothing can beat them. I highly recommend them to any author looking for a great home for their books.


So you have a book, Triangles, coming out with Spencer Hill Press. What was the inspiration behind the story?


What inspired me to write about the Bermuda Triangle is my love for the island of Bermuda. It’s one of the safest, cleanest, nicest islands I’ve traveled to, and I’ve been to many islands. The people are amazing, the sights rock, and the weather is beautiful. Plus, they have the Bermuda Triangle! I’ve cruised to Bermuda and stayed on the island and will go back soon. Also, I wanted to write something that hadn’t been done for the YA market, so the Bermuda Triangle was perfect!


Is there any particular character that you enjoyed writing more than others? 


Hmm, I really love Joey. He’s just the kind of guy I would have wanted when I was in high school – sweet, caring, understanding, and hot!


Are there any particular scenes that you enjoy writing more than others?


I like writing scenes where the guys fight over a girl. They are so much fun to write, and what girl doesn’t dream of two guys going at it over her?


So Triangles is about the Bermuda Triangle. To me this is something completely new and unique… what is it that made you decided to write about it?


Triangles’ first draft did not include the Bermuda Triangle, and as I was writing it, I wanted to add a unique spin to make it more interesting. As I was brainstorming, the Bermuda Triangle was one of the ideas I came up with, and it took off from there! 


So your blurb states that there will be a love triangle… with hot guys? Any little sneak-peaks or insights you can give us about them?


Well, Joey and Marcus sure keep Autumn on her toes! Joey is the sweet, boy-next-door guy who’s crushing on Autumn, and Marcus is the hot, mysterious guy who also likes Autumn. Once they get on the cruise ship, Autumn gets a ‘taste’ of each of them, and has different experiences with each guy. It was really fun to write those scenes, too!


Triangles is due for release in June. How excited are you about releasing the book into the world?


Words cannot describe the amazing feeling that comes with debuting a novel. It’s a combination of exciting and scary. I hope readers will love the story as much as I do! 


Well I for one cannot wait to read it.


Thanks Kayleigh!

Well today is such an appropriate day to have Triangles and Kim on the blog as Spencer Hill Press have announced an epic contest today called the Triangles Sweepstakes...

Check out the epicness

From Spencer Hill Press
Kimberly Ann Miller's debut novel, Triangles, takes place on a cruise to Bermuda, so it was only obvious that we would have to give away a frikkin' CRUISE to celebrate its release.

Yeppers, Spencer Hill Press is giving away a cruise to one lucky winner. Really. This is not an April Fool's joke--it's a travel voucher that can be used to cover the cost of a cruise (or any other travel--we're flexible that way). Two other winners will receive gift cards from either Amazon or Book Depository (winners' choice).

Official rules and entry forms are available online at:
http://www.site.spencerhillpress.com/Triangles_Sweepstakes.html

I know right? How freaking awesomely epic is this? Spencer Hill Press are phenomenal!

Now... finally giveaway time.
Win ONE of Spencer Hill Press' May Releases...
