BIG Contest to celebrate the release of HUNTED! Many prizes AND a Kindle

I am so excited that HUNTED is finally available! It’s my YA paranormal fantasy/dystopian, and it’s been getting some rave reviews and fantastic blurbs. I put a lot of my heart and soul into HUNTED. A lot of hope & healing, and standing up to oppression of all kinds. I care about it a lot, and I hope you will, too. And, like I did with SCARS, I drew on my abuse and trauma experience to write HUNTED–AND my hope, healing, compassion.

There are lots of prizes, including:

-25 signed, specially printed Hunted comic strips (signed by me AND the artist, printed on semi-gloss card stock–could be a collector’s item some day!)
-25 signed postcard short stories–Scars short story printed on one side, Hunted short story printed on the other
-5 signed copies of HUNTED
-3 signed copies of SCARS
-2 signed copies of Dragon Speaker: The Last Dragon
-2 signed copies of SkinWalkers: Walking Both Sides
-2 $10 Amazon gift cards (delivered via email)

And the grand prize: A new Kindle! (You must be in the US to receive it, or have a friend who lives in the US who can ship it to you; Amazon is only shipping US at this point.)

And everyone can download all the free HUNTED goodies I’ve created, including the short story ebook, the postcard short story, the comic strip, the 7-page comic book, the “newspaper article”, the teacher’s guide, and more.

Open US, Canada, and UK. The Kindle Touch can only be shipped to the US.

    Whoops, there’s a mistake on my previous comment.

    This is the correct link for the tweet of the Hunted book trailer:!/xjessirae/status/149306442816561154

    The other link is a tweet about the giveaway:!/xjessirae/status/149321963674931200
