I bet you have a best friend. If you’re lucky like Kylie, you have more than one. Kylie’s friends Miranda and Della would do anything for her. And she’s done a lot for them—like donating blood for Della even though it grossed her out, and like helping Miranda deal with dyslexia. But that’s what friends do. They help each other out even if it isn’t something easy to do. Right?
Friends share secrets, fashion advice, and pour their hearts out to each other about boys. In Taken at Dusk, Kylie, Miranda, and Della are as close as ever. Because all of them have had their heart broken at one time or another, they are all a little scared to take a chance on love. Not wanting to let fear stop them, they make a pact with each other to go after a boy they like, but are all afraid to let themselves care too much.
No, I’m not going to tell you if Kylie’s boy is Lucas or Derek! You’ll have to wait and read the book for that answer. But I’ll bet you can guess who Miranda’s pact involves—a certain, shape-shifting jokester named Perry. Ahh, but there’s another guy wanting to date Miranda. And when she agrees to go out with this guy, you’ll never guess what Perry does. Yup, Miranda has a choice to make. And Della, well, there’s that cute shape-shifter, Steve, who she’s got her eye on, and he’s got a thing for her, too. Can Della let down her guard long enough to actually give Steve a chance? But as important as the boys are to them, it’s the encouragement and laughter-inducing friendship they give each other that means the most.
Personally, I have a lot of good friends. Friends I can call any time and know they will listen to me whine. Friends who read my books before I send them to my editor and help me find my typos. Friends who listen to me talking about my Shadow Fall characters as if they were real. Friends who love to laugh, who encourage me, and offer me advice.
Do you have a friend who has been there for you? Who has listened to you whine endlessly about a certain boy? A friend who makes you laugh until your stomach hurts? Or a friend who you know will always keep your secrets?
You know, with the holidays approaching, I’m always on the outlook of a small gift I can offer my friends—just a little way of saying thank you. Maybe you have a friend who hasn’t read the Shadow Falls series. Maybe your friend just hasn’t had the opportunity. Well, I’d like to change that. I would love to send your friend a copy of Born at Midnight. I’ll write a note and personalize the book and let your friend know that it’s a gift from you and from me. Oh, I’ll also include some other cool promotional stuff: pens, notebooks, and bookmarks. And, as a thank you, I’ll send you some cool Shadow Falls things, too!
What have you got to do? Leave a comment as to why you think your friend would love Born at Midnight. That’s it! Good luck!
