Lumière by Jacqueline E. Garlick

                Hello readers!  Today I’m participating in a Blog Blitz hosted by Seeing Double In Neverland for a book I’m excited about:  Lumière by Jacqueline Garlick.   I’ll give you a quick idea of the story and the author some details you might be interested in and in gun blog tour fashion a giveaway to win awesome goodies!  Lumière will be available on August 11th.

Goodreads / Amazon / B&N / Book Depository
                One determined girl.  One resourceful boy.  One miracle machine that could destroy everything.

                After an unexplained flash shatters her world, seventeen-year-old Eyelet Elsworth sets out to find the Illuminator, her father’s prized invention.  With it, she hopes to cure herself of her debilitating seizures before Professor Smrt—her father’s arch nemesis—discovers her secret and locks her away in an asylum.

                Pursued by Smrt, Eyelet locates the Illuminator only to see it whisked away.  She follows the thief into the world of the unknown, compelled not only by her quest but by the allure of the stranger—Urlick Babbit—who harbors secrets of his own.

                Together, they endure deadly Vapours and criminal-infested woods in pursuit of the same prize, only to discover the miracle machine they hoped would solve their problems may in face be their biggest problem of all. 

                You can also pre-order the sequel Noir available August 18th!  Such a short time to wait between books it’s heavenly!

About Author Jacqueline in her own words!

Goodreads / FacebookWebsite 
                I write YA, New Adult, and Women’s Fiction.  I love strong heroines, despise whine sidekicks, and adore a good story about a triumphant underdog.  I love to read, write, paint (walls and paper) and plan cool writing events for cool writers here.  I have a love/hate relationship with chocolate, grammar, and technology.  I prefer creating things to cleaning things, and baking to cooking and believe laughter is a one-stop-shop solution to all that ails you.  I also firmly believe ELO’s Mr. Blue Sky can improve even the worst day.  And if that doesn’t work, there’s always Ellen Degeneres.  You will always find a purple wall (or two) in my house (perhaps even a door) and a hidden passageway that leads to a mystery room.  (Okay, so you won’t find a hidden passageway but a girl can dream, can’t she?)  Oh, and tea.  There will always be tea.  I love specialty teas…and collecting special teacups from which to drink them.

                In my former like, I was a teacher (both grade school and college – long story, don’t ask) and more recently, I’ve been a graduate of Ellen Hopkins Nevada Mentor Program and a student of James Scott Bell, Christopher Vogler and Don Maass.  An excerpt from Lumière earned me the 2012 Don Maass Break Out Novel Intensive Scholarship.

                Known for my edge, rule-breaking, Tim Burton-esque style of writing, I’m often affectionately referred to as the Quentin Tarantino of YA among friend in writing circles.                

                Now that giveaway that I mentioned is open to US and Canada Only.  Take a quick moment to enter this lovely giveaway and check out both Lumière and Noir.
