A ragtag group of teenage mercenaries who crew the spaceship Avalon
stumble upon a conspiracy that could threaten the entire galaxy in this
fascinating and fast-paced sci-fi adventure from author Mindee Arnett.
the various star systems that make up the Confederation, most lie
thousands of light-years from First Earth-and out here, no one is free.
The agencies that govern the Confederation are as corrupt as the crime
bosses who patrol it, and power is held by anyone with enough greed and
ruthlessness to claim it. That power is derived from one thing:
metatech, the devices that allow people to travel great distances faster
than the speed of light.
Jeth Seagrave and his crew of teenage
mercenaries have survived in this world by stealing unsecured metatech,
and they’re damn good at it. Jeth doesn’t care about the politics or the
law; all he cares about is earning enough money to buy back his
parents’ ship, Avalon, from his crime-boss employer and getting himself
and his sister, Lizzie, the heck out of Dodge. But when Jeth finds
himself in possession of information that both the crime bosses and the
government are willing to kill for, he is going to have to ask himself
how far he’ll go to get the freedom he’s wanted for so long.
is the perfect fit for teens new to sci-fi as well as seasoned sci-fi
readers looking for more books in the YA space-and a great match for
fans of Joss Whedon’s cult hit show Firefly.
So now that you know what the book is about, here are the details to the twitter party. Hope you can make it!
Here are the rules/tips/details for the party! Some are more important than others.
1. WHO: This party will be hosted by me (@NovaBlogder). So you might just want to be following us. Hehe, just a tip. (If you want to unfollow at the end of the party, knock yourself out. I’m not offended in the least.)
2. WHERE: Twitter.
If you don’t have a twitter account, it is very easy to make one, trust me! And there are a lot of benefits! You can make a lot of friends and meet a lot of fellow bloggers/authors and book lovers.
3. WHEN: January 22nd, at 7-8 PM ET. 6-7 PM CST, 5-6 PM MST, 4-5 PM PST. This will be a party for one hour.
4. WHAT: A twitter party is an hour-long chat with Mindee Arnett. She’ll answer your questions, talk about Avalon and you can talk to other people who have read/have not read Avalon! It’s all to spread the love of books and this one in particular.
5. PRIZES: We’ve got prizes for both INT and US readers! Prizes will be going each 15 minutes. Check for my tweets because I will be hosting the giveaway. Two giveaways will be RT ones and the other two will be questions/challenges! The winners will be selected randomly.
6. HOW: I recommend using a hashtag following site. I use www.tweetchat.com because www.twubs.com has somehow been glitching on me. (Maybe for you, it might be the opposite.)
Just enter the hashtag #Avalon and then log into your twitter account to tweet. Also, if you want a reply, make sure you use the hashtag (using a site will auto put the hashtag for you). There is no guarantee I/Mindee will check our Mentions.
As a pre-party giveaway to get you PUMPED about the party, Mindee has also donated a $15 AMAZON or B&N GC!!!
