Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

    • The Apocalypse Wouldn't Be A Good Time To Write, So Let's Do It Now.
I was just thinking about it...

It's awesome to tweet our fellow author's books. I don't know about you guys, but it makes me happy on either end of it, and I'm pretty damn sure it makes the person whose book got tweeted happy. So I've got an idea. This thread is dedicated to tweeting (or facebook/goodreads post, whatever) someone else's book on this forum.

Anyone, it can be random, it can be someone you know. Post about it here, and lets get creative and have fun! Try topical hashtags, try new hashtags, try creative or funny or whatever kind of Copy in the tweet/post.

If your book gets tweeted, tweet out someone elses! Or feel free to tweet multiple people, whatever. And we can share analytics data on the tweets and crap, let's just have a good time with this.

I'll start my first one; there's a BUNCH of people I could tweet for who've helped me out on here, but I'll start with Craig Martelle, he's helped me out a lot. (thanks Craig!)

Here's what I tweeted: https://twitter.com/EvanTP87/status/730487435679965184

I'm going to tweet out your book, Evan and retweet your tweet. Reading your blog led me to the Post-Apoc group on Goodreads and Craig has done his bit to help me on Facebook.

Nice idea...

Great idea. I have retweeted yours. Followed you and created a tweet.  This is for Benjamin Kuttner - I recently read his book and thought it was a cool concept. His tag line in his thread for The Orlove Diamond is DaVinci Code meets James Bond but I think of it as more like Indiana Jones and the education of the next generation of treasure hunters.  Either way here's the link to the tweet.

Perhaps we should keep this thread for people who need re-tweets for some sort of promotion. This should keep it going  :).
