THE APOLLO ACADEMY by Kimberly P. Chase … release giveaway!

Tuesday, 6 August 2013  |  Posted by Brenda Drake


I am so thrilled to be a apart of Kimberly P. Chase’s THE APOLLO ACADEMY blog tour and and giveaway. You may have seen Kimberly Chase running things for my contests on occasions. She’s organized the slush for Pitch Madness, and ran things for The Writers Voice while I was away at a conference. And today her book THE APOLLO ACADEMY was released early. You want to get your hands on a copy – you will get lost in this fun and exciting read! Enter the rafflecopter giveaway below for a chance to win critiques & passes to bypass the first two slush rounds of Pitch Madness. And go congratulate Kimberly (@kpchase817)  on Twitter.

As the heiress to Titon Technologies, eighteen-year-old Aurora Titon can have whatever she wants—clothes, expensive gadgets, anything money can buy. All she really wants is to escape her pampered, paparazzi-prone life for the stars. Becoming the first female pilot to train as an astronaut for the Apollo Academy is exactly the chance for which she has been waiting. Everything would be perfect if it weren’t for her unreciprocated crush on a fellow student, the sexy astronaut bent on making her life hell, and the fact that someone keeps trying to kill her.
The first in a four book new adult science fiction series, The Apollo Academy, is an action packed story of love, discovery, and survival.

Available at Amazon, B&N, and iTunes
