I bet you’re here to see exclusive content and win fantabulous book prizes, am I right? Then let’s get started.  I’m your host, Tobie Easton, author of Emerge and Submerge (Books 1 and 2 in the Mer Chronicles) about Mermaids who live secretly on land.

Lia Nautilus may be a Mermaid but she's never lived in the ocean. War has ravaged the seven seas ever since the infamous Little Mermaid unleashed a curse that stripped Mer of their immortality. Lia has grown up in a secret community of land-dwelling Mer hidden among Malibu's seaside mansions. Her biggest problems are surviving P.E. and keeping her feelings for Clay Ericson in check. Sure, he's gorgeous in that cocky, leather jacket sort of way and makes her feel like there's a school of fish swimming in her stomach, but getting involved with a human could put Lia's entire community at risk. So it's for the best that he's dating that new girl, right?

That is, until Lia finds out she isn't the only one at school keeping a potentially deadly secret. And this new girl? Her eyes are dead set on Clay, who doesn't realize the danger he's in. If Lia hopes to save him, she'll have to get closer to Clay. Lia's parents would totally flip if they found out she was falling for a human boy, but the more time she spends with him, the harder it is for her to deny her feelings. After making a horrible mistake, Lia will risk everything to stop Clay from falling in love with the wrong girl.

Today, I’m SUPER excited to be hosting author Kim Chance!

Kim Chance is an English teacher from Alabama, currently residing in Michigan with her husband and three children. When not writing, Kim enjoys spending time with her family and two crazy dogs, binge-watching Netflix, fangirling over books, and making death-by-cheese casseroles. Keeper is her first young adult novel. Kim is also a YouTuber who loves connecting with other writers. She posts videos at www.youtube.com/kimchance1 and is the creator of the #ChancetoConnect chat on Twitter. Connect with her on Twitter: @_KimChance, Instagram: kimwritesbooks, Facebook: @kimwritesbooks, and on her website: www.kimchance.com.

When a 200-year-old witch attacks her, sixteen-year-old bookworm Lainey Styles is determined to find a logical explanation. Even with the impossible staring her in the face, Lainey refuses to believe it—until she finds a photograph linking the witch to her dead mother.

After consulting a psychic, Lainey discovers that she, like her mother, is a Keeper: a witch with the exclusive ability to unlock and wield the Grimoire, a dangerous but powerful spell book. But there’s a problem. The Grimoire has been stolen by a malevolent warlock who is desperate for a spell locked inside it—a spell that would allow him to siphon away the world’s magic.

With the help of her comic-book-loving best friend and an enigmatic but admittedly handsome street fighter, Lainey must leave her life of college prep and studying behind to prepare for the biggest test of all: stealing back the book.

And now here's Kim's exclusive YASH content!

Hello YASHers!

I am so excited to share with you an exclusive excerpt from my upcoming debut novel, KEEPER! In this scene, Lainey (the main character) and Maggie, her best friend, are sitting in their high school’s cafeteria. When Ty—the mysterious but seriously cute new guy—comes over, Maggie takes the opportunity to make sure he knows exactly where he stands when it comes to the pecking order in Lainey’s life.

This scene was SO much fun to write—especially given Maggie’s affinity for comic book references! It’s the perfect snapshot of her spunky personality, and it’s definitely one of my favorite moments in the book.

Happy reading! I hope you enjoy it!

Be sure to visit me over on my blog. I’m giving away signed copies of KEEPER and two $15 Amazon gift cards! :)

A huge thank you to Tobie for hosting me, and best of luck with the rest the hunt! Remember, Magic Always Leaves a Mark!
