Happy Birthday to Jenny Pox – and a major Jenny Pox announcement!

Today is the second anniversary of the publication of Jenny Pox! And that makes it a great day to announce that there will be a fourth Jenny Pox book, something I wasn’t expecting. It will be out this fall...details to follow in the near future!

Each post on today's hop focuses on one of the six paranormal characters from the series. I picked Esmeralda for my blog...

Who is Esmeralda?

Esmeralda Medina Rios was born with a paranormal touch enabling her to "speak" with the dead, or at least experience their memories from life.  When she's a small girl, her mother makes her do this for money, finding out secrets about the dead for their relatives or others who knew them.

Esmeralda quits that line of work while still a child, claiming she's lost the power.  As she grows older, she trains as a mortuary cosmetician, preferring the peaceful world of the dead to that of the living.  But the other paranormals aren't going to let her have a simple life...

If you haven’t seen it, here’s the Jenny Pox trailer!

The Jenny Pox ebook is currently free on Amazon, Smashwords, Apple, Sony, and Kobo, and cheap on Nook!

You can't have a birthday or anniversary without gifts (well, not a very fun one, anyway) so I'm offering a couple of giveaways:

To enter, comment on the posts on July 22!  One comment per blog counts as an entry, for a total of 6 possible entries (my blog and the five hosts).

2. Giveaway #2: Fun With Fan Fotos. A $25 gift card to Amazon.  International!

To enter, send a photo of yourself with Jenny Pox (this can be the paperback or the cover displayed on your Kindle, Nook, iPad, etc.) to this address.  One randomly selected entry will win the $25 gift card!
For this giveaway, you'll get 2 entries if you send the picture before July 22, or one entry if you send it on July 22 or during the following week while the giveaway is open.

Pictures may be used to decorate the Jenny Pox webpage with a collage of fan pictures, if I get around to it. Show how happy you are with Jenny Pox, as Bookish Brunette is demonstrating for you!

**Must be 13 years or older to enter giveaways!*

Q. What if I want to enter the picture contest thingy but don't want to send a picture of my face?
A. That's OK!  You can wear a Halloween mask or other disguise, or you can use your book or Kindle to block most of your face, something like that!

That's what's happening!  If you love Jenny Pox, you can show it by grabbing the button code for your blog!  Thanks, and Happy Independence Day (for those of you in the U.S.)!  Let's blow some stuff up!
