Super Sekrit Cover Reveal

Okay, so today I'll be divulging a super sekrit cover reveal. Sort of. Okay, not really. But today, we're talking about TEN by Gretchen McNeil, and she is running a contest that goes until Friday, February 24 where she will reveal the cover to TEN on a super sekrit blog that will be revealed as you follow the scavenger hunt. She started the chain for the clues you'll need to enter to win the most amazing, exclusive prize ever!

You want to know what it is? (I felt like Jeff Probst typing that.)

A signed and annotated copy of the unbound galley of TEN. A one of a kind prize, out before the ARCs. How awesome is that? (Totally awesome.)


So let's examine TEN a little closer: And their doom comes swiftly.

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives – three days on Henry Island at an exclusive house party. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their own reasons for wanting to be there, both of which involve Kamiak High’s most eligible bachelor, T.J. Fletcher. But what starts out as a fun-filled weekend turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.


Suddenly, people are dying and the teens are cut off from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?


Add TEN to your Goodreads list.


And in case you don't know Gretchen... Gretchen McNeil is an opera singer, writer and clown. Her YA horror/paranormal POSSESS debuted with Balzer + Bray for HarperCollins in 2011. Her second novel, TEN – YA horror/suspense about ten teens trapped on a remote island with a serial killer – will be released September 18, 2012. Gretchen is a former coloratura soprano, the voice of Mary on G4's Code Monkeys and she currently sings with the LA-based circus troupe Cirque Berzerk. Gretchen is also a founding member of the vlog group YARebels where she can be seen as "Monday."

You'll need all ten (get it? TEN?) clues to enter to win the signed and annotated copy of the unbound galley of TEN. Everything is happening this Friday, February 24, so you have time to start the hunt today if you haven't yet. (Here, remember? You can start here.)

Today's clue: NATHAN.

Be sure to check in at Christine Fonseca's blog tomorrow for another clue!

What do you think? Does TEN sound like something you'd read? I will totally 100% admit to being the biggest, yellowest chicken on the planet. The premise of TEN scares the crap out of me. But I'm gonna read it anyway. I'm sure it's awesome!

Okay. So I was so taken with the cover of Possess that I bought it. Yet, I'm a scaredy cat and I haven't read it. I'm not so sure I would be able to handle this novel.

I'm sure whoever whens this prize will love it though.
