Launch Party for UNTOUCHED! Sara Humphreys

Whooo hoooo!!! Today is the official release day of UNTOUCHED and I am pumped!  I had a blast writing Dante and Kerry's story, so I certainly hope you'll have as much fun reading it. If you read UNLEASHED, then you've already been introduced to our hero and heroine. If not, check out the blurb below for a bit about them.


SHE SHOULD BE SEEN, BUT NEVER TOUCHED…



Kerry Smithson’s modeling career ensures that she will be admired from afar, which is essential since mere human touch sparks blinding pain and terrifying visions.






EVERY GOOD MODEL NEEDS A HEAVENLLY BODYGUARD…


Dante Coltari is hired to protect Kerry from those who know who she is—or more importantly what she is—and want her dead because of it. Nothing could have prepared him for the challenge of keeping her safe. But, strangely, his lightest touch brings her exquisite pleasure rather than pain, and Dante and Kerry have an otherwordly connection that might just pull them through.

The Buzz..

“Red-hot love scenes punctuate a well-plotted suspense story that will keep readers turning pages as fast as they can.”--Starred Review—Publishers Weekly

“The second installment in Humphreys’ Amoveo Legend series is full of fast-paced action and complex characters. Untouched gives readers an inside look at the shapeshifters from these amazing clans, as well as the evil that lurks at the edges of this amazing group."--4 stars– RT Bookreviews Magazine

  

 

Thanks to our super-fab publicist at Sourcebooks, I'll be blogging all over cyberspace throughout the entire month of April and we're giving away tons of books! You can get the full blog tour list on my newly designed website.  I've also got a brick & mortar book tour underway which includes the 2012 RT Convention in Chicago--so be sure to come by and say hello if you're there!

I'm also running a month long contest on FB and my website. It's easy to enter. Just post a comment on my website blog posts or on the FB wall and you're entered. Each week I'll select one person at random to win the prize for the week. I'm giving away mugs, tote bags, t-shirts and more!



Then on the last day of April I'll announce the Grand Prize winner who will receive a tote bag full of all of those goodies plus a Nook simple touch!! (Which was donated by Kelly, the CRM from my local B&N. Thanks, Kelly!) To keep up with all of this be sure to check my website and FB page for the info!

So let's kick this party off with some prizes!! Leave a comment here on the blog by 11:59pm today telling us which one of the prizes in the picture above you'd like to win. I'll select two lucky people who will each win a copy of UNTOUCHED! (US and Canada only) and one of the prizes from the picture above.

  1. Congratulations on your new release! And if I could pick one goodie from the picture above, I would want the tote bag I think. That way I can carry your books with me in style and show off a little. ;)

  13. Huge congratulations on your new release. I'd love to win the Tote Bag, as I'm a firm believer in doing my bit to try and save the planet by using these great bags to tote my shopping in, and not using plastic bags.

    Thanks for this great opportunity.

  19. Good Morning!! If anyone here hasn't read Untouched, pick it up!! You won't be disappointed!! Can't wait for Untamed, I didn't pay much attention to Layla (shame on me......) The sneak peek (for Untamed) was GREAT!! Tote bags are the way to go, great advertisement and conversation starters!!

  20. Congratulations Miss Sarah! The blurb sounds perfect.

    If I had to choose something, I would choose a copy of the book. Tote bags and mugs are pretty good, but can anything ever really beat kicking back with a good book at the end of a bad day?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yay, it's release day! I should have taken a vacation day so I could sit home and read all day :)

    Congrats, Sara! And if I could win a goody I'd love that tote bag as well.

  22. Happy Release Day! Your book sounds awesome. I love the cover. I would chose the mug. :)

  27. Congratulations! And another gorgeous cover. I'm afraid I haven't read the first book (should they be read in order) but they both sound wonderful. As to prizes - they all are great - I collect mugs, wear the t-shirts and use totes so it wouldn't matter :)

  54. Mmm I would have to say the mug. I have a Elisabeth Naughton mug and a I <3 Warrior (donna Grant). So it would NOT be lonely and my boys knowto touch it will bring the wraith...

    And the tote.

  55. Hi Rachel--OMG! I love that. My boys also have instructions to not touch certain items....my wine glasses are at the top of the list.

  60. Congrats on the release of Untouched! It is a tough choice but I think that aside from the book itself the mug would get the most usage and therefore be my top pick. Starting my day with coffee in that mug would assuredly be something to look forward to even on a Monday morning.
