Neverland: Book Trailer and Competition

So, Neverland, a novel by Douglas Clegg is being released tomorrow.

Heres a hint about the premise of the book:

“If you look at the literature of childhood, from the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm to the wizard world of Harry Potter, you find a massively confusing world of adult rules, deception and mendacity. Child heroes stumble through this darkness, virtue and purity their only tools of defense against the big, bad world of adulthood. Sometimes this world is Wonderland. Sometimes it is a gingerbread house…In Douglas Clegg's newest book he calls this world Neverland. ..While the adults in the story teeter around drunkenly unaware, the children are waging a battle. Like childhood itself, it is a battle where the rules are unknown and the damage is unfathomable. ..Neverland is a mix of Southern Gothic, horror and coming-of-age story--a chilling adult bedtime story for those not afraid of the dark.”

Shelf Awareness

To celebrate and publicise the event Douglas Clegg is having an amazing competition at his website www.douglasclegg.com . So I highly recommend everyone hops over to the site as they could be in for the chance at the Grand Prize of either a Kindle or a Nook (if you're in the U.S.). You’ll also be able to check out exclusive, limited-time ebooks, and special bonus content including upcoming goodies such as a special videogame!

I'm really excited to start reading this book, especially after seeing the trailer. I think it's one of the best trailers I've seen in a very long time. Gave me a severe case of goosebumps and a chill down the spine, so if this is any indication, the book should be excellent (and also scary as hell - i'm thinking row row row my boat will never be the same for me!!!)

I'm excited about this one too, as my copy just arrived this past week! Didn't know about the contest though, so now I'm even more excited! Thanks :)
