Super Scary Sale + 4 Chances to Win!

Yes I know I'm a bad blogger.  Spring is always crazy for me.  And this year I have to finish Scent of Magic.  Yes, I know the book won't be released until the very end of 2012, early 2013, but my editor  likes to have it a year in advance if possible.  I'm trying to finish it by April 15th. 

Spring is also school sports season for my kids.  Luke plays volleyball for his high school, and Jenna plays soccer for her middle school.  So everyday after school they have practice and games and fundraisers and really really smelly socks.  And tis the season for field trips, concerts, and conferences.

In case you missed my latest newsletter, I wanted to let everyone know about a super sale for SPIRITED: 13 Haunting Tales.  The e-book is currently on-sale for 0.99 until April 8th!! 


You can order the e-book on both Amazon and B&N websites:

http://www.amazon.com/Spirited-ebook/dp/tags-on-product/B005ZGH4ZI

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/spirited-kat-oshea/1106924748

The print edition is also out now! And to celebrate the release of the print book - I'm giving away FOUR copies of SPIRITED.  To enter to win - post a link to my website or blog or books (or all three) online (on Facebook, Goodreads, Twitter, etc...) and then let me know in a comment to this blog what you did (also include your email addy, please).  Three posts gets you three chances to win!  You must post the comment by Friday, April 6th midnight EDST.

SPIRITED is a wonderful collection of haunted houses, haunted hearts, and a past that refuses to die. And the best part - ALL PROCEEDS from the anthology (both print and e-Book) will be donated to National 826, a literacy-based charity! Yep - all the money is going to support literacy.

Here's a blurb from the back: Get entombed in stories of Egyptian treasures, shudder at tales of malevolent spirits, and become enthralled with the adventures of witch-hunters, ghost seekers, and lost souls. From steampunk to cyberpunk, our collection spans past, present, and future hauntings. One story actually leaps off the page with 3-D augmented reality.

My story is titled, NEW GIRL (titled before that TV show - and not the 3-D one :), and you can read an excerpt on my website at the link below.

  9. Stop blogging woman and go write! Ha, ha. Can't wait for Scent of Magic!! I have a Jenna who plays soccer too. She was complaining to me the other day that no one else had her name at school or church. I was thinking, "That's the point," but she's the type that would complain about her name whatever it was. She once asked if we could call her Sam. :D

  19. Sweet~ I love when timing works out well *laughs*. I was just trying to decide who to have as my first author spotlight on my new Book Review blog and you were one of the ones I had narrowed to and look a need to post your link on my site HMMM Must be fate *smiles*

    So a complete post on my blog dedicated and linked to you: http://journeythroughpages.blogspot.com/2012/04/author-spotlight-maria-v-snyder.html

    The tweet about it: https://twitter.com/#!/ThroughPages/status/186646279433097219

    And I also posted on facebook, but it is unfortunately privacy protected so only my friends can read it, so I did do it, but since you can't see it you can decide to count it or not.

    Good luck with Scent of Magic!

    P.S. Later this month I'll be posting a lot of reviews of your books (specifically Inside Out, Outside In and the Glass Series) if you cared to look (or not).

    Happy Writing :D
