FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Judy Goodwin’s Second Book Catches YA Buzz
Gilbert writer reveals the cover of her YA fantasy novel Journey to Landaran in a blog tour and captures the interest of over 500 potential readers.
Gilbert, Arizona, December 3, 2013. Judy Goodwin, a native Arizonan writer, announced today that the cover release for her upcoming book has created an online buzz among YA book blogs. The book, Journey to Landaran, appeared on twenty-five blogs and featured a giveaway for advanced reader copies. The giveaway garnered over five hundred entries, impressive for a near unknown writer.
The YA genre has exploded in recent years with the release of books like The Hunger Games and Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, both of which have been made into popular movies. This has led to new books popping up for the teenage and young adult markets. The books typically feature either teenage or twenty-something year olds in worlds with magic, paranormal elements and romance.
“This sounds like a lot of fun, and the characters sound mischievous. I love the sound of the paranormal elements” CaffeinatedBookReviewer.com
“I’m excited!” Ellen, Glamorous Book Lounge
The book is the first of a five book YA fantasy series featuring Aidah and her brother Tavish, twin heroes with paranormal powers. Diamond Print Press will launch the book in March, 2014 with a blog tour and giveaways. The book will be available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers.
