I know there will be ARCs sometime in April, but I honestly don't have any idea yet how many will be offered. You can contact Jodie Hockensmith, my publicist at Pulse. Her email is on the contact page of my website. I've also started a handful of giveaways -- there's one here on Goodreads and another with the cover reveal on several blogs. You can find a list here at AdventuresInYAPublishing.com. I hope that helps! And thank you again for letting me know you enjoyed Compulsion! I hope you'll love Persuasion too!!! XO(less)

Secret of Souls is a twisty, mind-bending fantasy with fresh and inventive world-building and a deadly, sassy protagonist. Kept me compulsively turning pages!

Martina Boone, Compulsion

“Love doesn't come with an on-off switch. It's made of too many threads of memory and hope and heartache that weave themselves into the very core of who you are.”
