Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

{March 5, 2012}   ‘LAUNCH INTO THE GALAXY’ Blog Hop and Giveaway

This week marks the re-launch of Heather Hildenbrand’s amazing YA fantasy, Across The Galaxy.

Here’s what Heather says about it:

For me, January marked one year as a published author and to mark that, I wanted to do something special to celebrate how far I’ve come in such a short amount of time. I can think of no better way to celebrate than to show some love to the title that got me here in the first place. Across The Galaxy was my first book and as a result, was also my guinea pig in a lot of ways. Through publishing it, I learned so much and met so many awesome bloggers and readers that I am so grateful for that story and for where it took me. For everything it’s given me, I want to give something back to it. (Yes, I realize I’m referring to my book as if it were a real person. Don’t you do that with the characters inside it? Yeah, I’m not the only crazy here.)

So, I found one of the best cover artists EVER and together we came up with a brand new cover that will basically rock your socks. Not sure? Take a minute. Go stare at the new cover and then come back and finish reading. I’ll wait. It’s worth it.

… Now, with a change this big, we aren’t stopping with just a cover reveal. That’s just not enough. So, we’re also doing an e-book giveaway here and another e-book giveaway on every site participating in the “LAUNCH INTO THE GALAXY” Hop this week so be sure to stop everywhere. In addition to THAT, I am also running a giveaway on my publisher’s site at www. and another one on my personal site at that will include a signed paperback and a very sleek and sexy, leather Kindle cover. Be sure to check that out! And be sure to leave a comment and let us know what you think of the new cover!



Her parents are dead, her best friend is a horse, and she can’t return to her home planet of Gliese until the Shadows, the monsters who hunt for her, are found and destroyed.

But they found her first. The same creatures that murdered her parents and forced her to flee to Earth all of those years ago. And they’ll stop at nothing to destroy the only thing standing in their way for universal domination – Alina.

She must find the strength to defeat them, even if it means choosing between victory and the one she
was meant to save…

The cover looks great! I especially like the colors.

I like the old cover, but I love the new cover! Still very sci-fi, but more personal :)

Denise Z says:

I think it is awesome that there is a new cover for the rerelease for promo purposes. I love the original cover as well, but I can see for marketing purposes that this is a great idea; after all I might not have gotten the hunger to read this book I have now had I not been made aware of the tour and followed the fun posts. Thank you for participating and sharing today.

As a proud cover whore I totally go nuts over book covers. It’s important to be eye catching and memorable. This one is all that.
