Giveaway~! & Trailer Reveal IN THE SHADOW OF BLACKBIRDS by CAT WINTER


Welcome to the trailer reveal tour for Cat Winters’s YA ghost tale, IN THE SHADOW OF BLACKBIRDS (Amulet Books, April 2013). From February 7-13, seven sites will host seven challenges to find clues about the novel and its trailer. And on February 14, The Mod Podge Bookshelf will celebrate a deliciously dark Valentine’s Day by hosting the exclusive trailer reveal and giveaway!

ABOUT THE NOVEL:

In 1918, the world seems on the verge of apocalypse. Americans roam the streets in gauze masks to ward off the deadly Spanish influenza, and the government ships young men to the front lines of a brutal war, creating an atmosphere of fear and confusion. Sixteen-year-old Mary Shelley Black watches as desperate mourners flock to séances and spirit photographers for comfort, but she herself has never believed in ghosts. During her bleakest moment, however, she’s forced to rethink her entire way of looking at life and death, for her first love—a boy who died in battle—returns in spirit form. But what does he want from her?

Featuring haunting archival early-twentieth-century photographs, this is a tense, romantic story set in a past that is eerily like our own time.

YOUR CHALLENGE:

Mary Shelley Black’s first love, Stephen Embers, enjoys anagrams (phrases or words created by rearranging the letters of other phrases or words).

Unscramble the following anagram to learn today’s secret about IN THE SHADOW OF BLACKBIRDS and/or the book’s trailer. Submit the word in the rafflecopter below, and you’ll be entered to win an advance reading copy of the novel, as well as a free download of the trailer’s music, “Under the Fate of the Blue Moon” by Jill Tracy. (Limited to U.S. and CANADA residents.)

TODAY’S CLUE:

Mary Shelley and Stephen first become childhood friends when she fixes this treasured device of his. (Hint: I bet you can picture it.)
