Thanks for the awesome first month, readers!
Hey, all!  Today is the first day of June and we'd like to thank-you all for an awesome first month.  We received over 8,000 page views and gained over 250 amazing, stellariffic (yes, I made up that word *grins*) followers!  We were blown away by the turn out and support for all things New Adult out there.  Thank you all so much and we hope to keep giving you as much information as we can about the NA category.

So, what's next?  Well, from now on we will be posting on Mondays only with the exception of special announcements, which you will always be able to see on the "Bulletin Board" on the right side of the page.  We have some suprises in store and hope you'll check-in often.

Don't forget you can be added as a Resource or a New Adult Author if you contact us under Contact Tab and you can now "Follow Us" on Twitter.  And as always keep those Recommended NA Reads suggestions coming!

Oh, and we will begin contacting the winners of our Opening Month Giveaway today.  There will be seven winners, BUT the prizes are first come, first serve as the names are drawn.  If you are a winner, you will be contacted and will only have 24 hours to respond in email about your preference of prize.  If we do not hear from you, we will have to move on to the next entry, so watch those emails closely the next few days so you don't forfeit your prize!

Now, here is what today's post is about.  Every month we will feature a New Adult book by a New Adult author.  We will tell you a bit about the book and offer a giveaway of the book, which will be given to one lucky reader at the end of the month!

If you're a New Adult author and would like your book to be featured as "Featured Book of the Month" and you're willing to offer one lucky reader a free copy of your book, just contact us under our Contact Tab!  You will get your own "Featured Book of the Month" post created by one of the NA Sisters and your book will be listed on the side bar of our blog for the ENTIRE month, woohoo!

Now without further ado, here is the "Featured Book of the Month" for June:

Gifted:  A Donovan Circus Novel by Liz Long

Even in a world of freaks, being a Firestarter is considered a dangerous Gift.

Lucy was born with the ability to create and control fire. She longs to leave the human world for one filled with Earthshakers, Transporters, and Chameleons, to name a few. When she rejoins the circus, it’s everything she hoped it could be—new friends, a potential love interest or two, and a place where she can be herself.

When troupe members begin turning up dead, however, Lucy is suspected of foul play. She must not only prove her innocence but also realize the full extent of her power. To find the real murderer, she must uncover the truth behind her father’s fiery legacy while figuring out whom to trust within her new circle. Little does she know the history of the Donovan Circus and its enemies might actually destroy the entire gifted world. (

About the Author:

Liz Long has been writing stories since she could spell the word "unicorn" (second grade). She fears a zombie apocalypse, though admits it would give her good reason to stay inside and write more. She is a proud graduate of Longwood University with a degree in English. Gifted is her debut title, the first in the Donovan Circus series. She lives in Roanoke, VA with her husband Jason and their Jack Russell terror, Fisher.
