Cover Reveal and Giveaway: CINDERSKELLA, the First Book in the Scarily Ever Laughter Series by Amie & Bethanie Borst

I am honored and so super duper excited to be one of the blog hosts for Amie Borst's big COVER REVEAL and giveaway today!!!

That's right...I said GIVEAWAY! Read all the way through to see how YOU can sign up to win fabulous prizes including a $25 Amazon gift card, or even a brand new Kindle Fire! (I feel so Bob Barker right now. Do I sound Bob Barker?)

While I have not had the pleasure of reading Cinderskella yet, I have read the story that will be the second book in this same series, and I can tell you that it is snort-out-loud funny. All of the middle grade readers in your life will adore it. I can hardly wait to read the book that kicks the whole series off, but unfortunately I will have to wait... for one more month anyway until it becomes available October 26th. You can however pre-order it on Barnes and Noble RIGHT NOW! Go ahead and do it if you'd like, but then come right back because you really don't want to miss out on this giveaway.

The thing that I (and you) will NOT have to wait any longer for is the chance to see what Cinderskella's beautiful cover looks like because here it is, for the very first time, in all its bookish splendor:
She is a beaut isn't she?

In case you don't already know what Cinderskella is about, here's a nice little description for you:

Cindy is just a normal 11¾-year-old girl. At least until she wakes up one night and finds out she’s dead. Well, she isn't technically dead—she just doesn't have any hair . . . or a nose . . . or skin. Yep—all bones, no body.

Human by day and skeleton by night, Cindy is definitely cursed. And because her mother recently died, Cindy has no one to turn to except a father who is now scared of her and an evil stepmother who makes her do the housecleaning with a toothbrush. To make matters worse, the Spring Fling dance is approaching, and Ethan, the cutest boy in sixth grade, doesn’t seem to know Cindy exists. Of course, Cindy doesn’t think letting Ethan find out she’s part skeleton is the best way to introduce herself.
While facing such perils as pickled pig’s feet, a wacky fortune teller, and a few quick trips to the Underworld, Cindy’s determined to break the curse—even for a single night.
Cinderskella is available for purchase at Barnes& Noble.

And THESE are lovely ladies responsible for the book:

Amie and Bethanie Borst are a mother-daughter writing team. Amie believes in Unicorns, uses glitter whenever the opportunity arises, accessories in pink and eats too much chocolate.  Bethanie is a spunky 13 year old middle-schooler who loves archery, long bike rides and studying edible plant-life. Cinderskella is their first book together and is part of the Scarily Ever Laughter series. You can find them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, From the Mixed-UpFiles of Middle-Grade Authors, as well as their blog.

NOW, without any further rambling on my part, the details of the non-cover-reveal feature of this blog you've been so patiently waiting for:
