Giveaway: Switched by Amanda Hocking

St. Martin’s Griffin is celebrating the release of Amanda Hocking’s Trylle Series!  The first book in the series, Switched, hits bookshelves today.  One lucky commenter will have a chance to win a copy of the book.  As always, details are listed at the end of the post.

About Amanda:

I live in Minnesota with my dog, two cats, two fish, a turtle, and my roommate/assistant/platonic lifemate, Eric. I actually live in Austin, a.k.a. SPAMTown, USA. They invented SPAM here, and the town is quite proud of it.

I do many things, most of them lame and boring, but the thing I get paid to do is write young adult books.

All three books in my Trylle Trilogy –SwitchedTorn, and Ascend – were originally self-published, but will be re-released with St. Martin’s and Pan Macmillan internationally with new bonus content starting on January 3, 2012. The trilogy has also made the USA Today Bestseller list and was recently optioned for a film by Media Rights Capitalwith District 9 screenwriter Terri Tatchelladapting the books for screen.

St. Martin’s and Pan Macmillan recently acquired my new young adult four-book seriesWatersong, with the first book Wake coming out in August 2012. My zombie series, The Hollows, is being adapted into a graphic novel by Dynamite.

I also enjoy Red Bull, Jim Henson, Batman, Jane Austen, Star Wars legos, and I absolutely hate long walks on the beach out of my intense fear/hatred of wet sand.

My favorite authors are Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk, Bret Easton Ellis, Alan Moore, and J. D. Salinger, but I don’t write anything like them.

I have an obsession with River Phoenix, and I’ve seen Silence of the Lambs more than any other movie, even The Dark Knight. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen every American movie that came out between 1980 and 1990, and I’ve loved them all. My favorite movies areThe Dark KnightLabyrinthThe CrowUpMy Own Private IdahoPretty in Pink, Empire Strikes BackBack to the Future II, and American Psycho.

About the Book:

SWITCHED… at birth:

When Wendy Everly was six years old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. Eleven years later, Wendy discovers her mother might have been right. She’s not the person she’s always believed herself to be, and her whole life begins to unravel—all because of Finn Holmes.

Finn is a mysterious guy who always seems to be watching her.  Every encounter leaves her deeply shaken…though it has more to do with her fierce attraction to him than she’d ever admit.  But it isn’t long before he reveals the truth:  Wendy is a changeling who was switched at birth—and he’s come to take her home.

Now Wendy’s about to journey to a magical world she never knew existed, one that’s both beautiful and frightening.  And where she must leave her old life behind to discover who she’s meant to become…

    I think it sounds really good. It sounds like the character goes through alot of truama with her mother. I would like to find out, what kind of monster she is.

    I’d like to read this series because I’d heard about Amanda Hocking a long time ago and have always been very interested in her books, yet never got to read any since I don’t buy e-books. So when I heard this book will be released in paperback, I knew I had to get it.

    I want to read this because it sounds good…very simple answer =) I just read the Iron Fey series and that was the first time I had heard of a changeling and it was really cool. I’d love to win this book. It also has a beautiful cover. I love most YA covers these days

    I love this concept! I’ve been hooked every since I saw the trailer. I always enjoy when a character falls down the rabbit hole so to speak and finds out their world isn’t what they’d always thought it was.
