Bree Despain is a super cool member of the blog 2010: A Book Odyssey, a blog for authors who will be debuting in 2010. This is where I came to discover her but she has her very own blog as well and on her blog there is a super cool contest for super cool prizes which you need to go enter. The only catch: you have to tell her I sent you!
Her book The Dark Divine will be out in 2010. Here is a summary from the 2010 blog.
Grace Divine, daughter of the local pastor, always knew something terrible happened the night Daniel Kalbi disappeared--the night she found her brother Jude collapsed on the porch, covered in blood--but the monstrous secret of what really transpired resurfaces when Daniel returns, three years later, and enrolls in Grace and Jude's small Christian high school.
Despite promising Jude she'll stay away, Grace cannot deny her attraction to Daniel's shocking artistic abilities, his way of getting her to look at the world from new angles, and the strange, hungry, glint in his eyes. The closer Grace gets to Daniel, the more she jeopardizes her life, and the lives of her enitre family, as her actions stir the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night. Grace must discover the truth behind Daniel and Jude's dark secret, and the way to save the ones she loves. But she may have to lay down the ultimate sacrifice to do it--her soul.
So go enter and tell her I sent you!
