Click the link above to learn more about Clean Teen Publishing and their wealth of books, but if you're not feeling liking clicking away, here's a small sample of what you can expect from them!
"At Clean Teen Publishing, we believe that our readers deserve to know ahead of time what they are reading. We do not believe in censorship; we believe in the right to know. Every reader, no matter what their age is, has certain boundaries they don't want to cross. Currently there is no consistent rating system in place for books like there are for movies, music and video games. We believe by offering a wider range of disclosure about the content of our books, we will give readers of all ages and parents, a stronger sense of comfort according to what lies between the pages.
With that said, we will not deem whether a book is appropriate or inappropriate for any particular age range.* Our disclosure is simply for you to know what is in the book and we leave it up to you to decide what you are comfortable with reading."
I'm kicking off the week with a review of DOUBLE STAR by Cindy Saunders! Clean Teen Publishing has graciously donated TWO e-copies of Double Star and TWO bookmarks! This means I'll have TWO winners! Rafflecopter to follow at the bottom of this post! :)
Double Star by Cindy Saunders
(YA- Paranormal Fantasy- Available Now)
She fell into his world, unaware of the key she carried and the doors it opened; a world where darkness waited to be set free ... The wait is over
Do You Believe?
Get it today on Amazon!
When Cepheus, a dark god, forces seventeen-year-old Ally Ashworth off an isolated overlook, she has no idea she's falling into his world, or that the necklace she’s wearing is actually a key - one with the power to ignite the next world war. But she’s carried beyond his reach and into the one place where he’s powerless ... the forest of Gilgamesh.
Ally’s never been Miss Popularity, but her outsider status takes on new meaning when she’s rescued by Liam Cheveyo and his peculiar friends. After seeing them shape-shift into their freaky humanimal counterparts, Ally smacks hard into a few truths: magic really does exist and, although getting here took no effort, finding her way back might be impossible. Feelings between her and Liam begin to grow along with the realization that, in this world, she’s stronger, better ... until she’s caught in a trap set by the creepy spider-boy Cepheus sends to retrieve her. But Ally’s not going down without a fight, not after learning the horrible truth about the passageways.
The survival of both worlds depends on it.
And here's a casting Top Ten from Cindy for her characters!
Top Ten Actors to play my characters in the movie version of Double Star:
Meg – Hayley Williams of Paramore
I came across a picture of her while I was creating Meg’s character and loved her look.
Thea – Maggie Smith
She’s definitely been typecast into the wise, sage role and I see no reason to change that!
Caleb – Jonathon Rhys Meyers
He has really great eyes and can certainly look the bad boy part!
Cepheus – Johnny Depp
Who else can look so sinister but, at the same time, so cute and godlike!
Ian – Corbin Bleu
With longer hair and green eyes, he’d make the perfect Ian!
Oisin- Joe Jonas
I hate to admit this but when I saw Joe Jonas on the cover of Rolling Stone a few years back, I knew he would make the perfect Oisin! He’s dark, sultry and definitely a chick magnet! Oh, to be young again!
Shane- Clay Matthews
He’d have to cut his hair (Oh, no!), turn back the clock a few years but I think he’d make a perfect Shane!
Corm- Alex Pettyfer
He definitely has the “Corm” look!
Liam – David Garrett
He’s always been my Liam! As a matter of fact, I’m going to have bumper stickers made up that read “Looking for Liam.”
Ally - A young Evan Rachel Wood.
She has an innocent type of beauty that really personifies Ally.
