The Blemished - *99c Dec 27th - Dec 30th*
« on: August 16, 2012, 07:06:44 am »
Think Uglies with a Margaret Atwood twist.

A beautiful world comes at a price...

In a world filled with stunning clones Mina Hart is Blemished. Her genes are worthless and that takes away her rights: her right to an Education, her right to a normal life and her right to have a child.

Mina keeps a dangerous secret which she never thought she could share until she meets Angela on her first day at St Jude's School. But their friendship is soon complicated by Angelas adoptive brother Daniel. Mina finds herself drawn to his mysterious powers and impulsive nature. Then there is the gorgeous clone Sebastian who Mina is forbidden from even speaking to

The Blemished is a frightening take on a fractured future where the Genetic Enhancement Ministry have taken control of Britain. It will take you on a ride filled with adventure, romance and rebellion.

Now available at http://www.amazon.com/The-Blemished-Trilogy-ebook/dp/B008UP8C52/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1345125561&sr=8-4&keywords=the+blemished and http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Blemished-Trilogy-ebook/dp/B008UP8C52/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345125880&sr=8-1

    Sarah. . . . . .

    Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book!  :)

    This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum.  Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

    A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

    --Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information.  You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

    --We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

    --While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days.  Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

    --We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link.  Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

    --Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows.  This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles!  Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post.  For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
    Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

    All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum.  Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

    Praise for The Blemished:

    Quote
    The Blemished is phenomenal and riveting. It is like no other book that I have ever read. I was wonderstruck by everything about this book; the amazing and extremely interesting storyline, the lively characters, the stunning world building, and the overall beautiful writing. This book blew me away, and I highly recommend it.

    Quote
    Wow, I was so delightfully surprised with this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story is original, fresh, and entertaining. The characters are so well written, and you really get to feel like you know them. I loved Mina. I loved her strength and her determination.

    Now just $0.99! http://www.amazon.com/The-Blemished-Trilogy-ebook/dp/B008UP8C52

    Plus, The Vanished - book 2 - is coming soon.

    http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16064396-the-vanished

    Most recent ARC review:

    "Oh. My. Flipping. Pancakes.

    If I thought The Blemished was good (which I did since I rambled endlessly about it to all my friends), The Vanished was like twenty-thousand times better! The characters, the plot, the action, the romance, the suspense...all of it was fantastic!"

    Read the first book and you'll be hooked, wanting more :)
