Release of Altercation by Tamara Hart Heiner

You might recall a book review I did about a year and a half ago for a book called Perilous by Tamara Hart Heiner. If that review doesn't automatically spring to mind, it's okay - just click this link and read all about it.  Tamara is a fresh new voice in the YA market, and her books are definitely worth your time even if you're slightly older than YA. Like me. Which is not to say that I'm old, because I'm not. 


Tamara has followed Perilous with a novel called Altercation, which was released just yesterday. It continues the story of the characters we met in the first novel, but it has been written to stand alone as well, in case you want to read it first. However, if you read one, you'll want the other one, so might as well just clear some time in your schedule this weekend to read them both. Put the phone to automatically head to voice mail and all that good stuff.


The FBI promises Jacinta Rivera and her friends that they are safe. Jaci wants desperately to believe them but weeks of hiding from their kidnapper, alias "The Hand", have left her wary. Hidden from the public eye in an FBI safe house, Jaci must reconcile both the mysterious disappearance of her father and the murder of her best friend.

A betrayal lands Jaci back in the grasp of The Hand, shattering her ability to trust and leaving her to wonder if she will ever piece together her broken life.

I have to say, I'm not a huge fan of the cover, but I am a fan of Tamara's, so it all comes out in the wash.

So ... I hear you right now asking me, "Tristi, how can we help Tamara celebrate her book release?"

And because you asked so nicely, I will tell you!

If you would like to purchase the book, you can get the hard copy here  and the Kindle version here.

And you can follow the blog tour by clicking here to see which blog is hosting on each day. Tamara explains in her own words why this is important:

Since this is a blog tour, EVERY DAY I will randomly select one person who made a comment on that day's blog. The winner will then get to decide if they would like an ebook copy of PERILOUS or ALTERCATION. That means I'm giving away 21 ebooks! And all you have to do is leave a comment! There's just one catch: there must be AT LEAST ten comments on that day for me to do the giveaway.

But if that's not enough, leaving a comment also gets you entered into the PRIZE DRAWINGS. This won't be random; it's cumulative. Every comment you leave counts as 1 point. If you are a follower on my blog, you get 1 point. Every time you tweet or share on Facebook about the tour, it's one point. I'll even add it up for you; just include me in on the tweet @tamaraheiner or on Facebook @tamarahartheiner (unless you don't trust my math, and then feel free to tally it up and send it to me).

THIRD PRIZE: 50-page critique of something of your choice (if you're not a writer, a $5 amazon.com gift card)
SECOND PRIZE: lot of five YA books
FIRST PRIZE: $20 gift card to Amazon.com

And there you have it - what a fun way to celebrate a new book's release!  So check out the book on Amazon, leave a comment here, visit the other blogs on the tour, and show Tamara some new-book love!
