Alpha Goddess by Amalie Howard Release Week Recap!

Hardcover, 400 pages
Expected publication: March 4th 2014 by Sky Pony Press

In Serjana Caelum’s world, gods exist. So do goddesses. Sera knows this because she is one of them. A secret long concealed by her parents, Sera is Lakshmi reborn, the human avatar of an immortal Indian goddess rumored to control all the planes of existence. Marked by the sigils of both heaven and hell, Sera’s avatar is meant to bring balance to the mortal world, but all she creates is chaos. A chaos that Azrath, the Asura Lord of Death, hopes to use to unleash hell on earth.

Torn between reconciling her past and present, Sera must figure out how to stop Azrath before the Mortal Realm is destroyed. But trust doesn’t come easy in a world fissured by lies and betrayal. Her best friend Kyle is hiding his own dark secrets, and her mysterious new neighbor, Devendra, seems to know a lot more than he’s telling. Struggling between her opposing halves and her attraction to the boys tied to each of them, Sera must become the goddess she was meant to be, or risk failing, which means sacrificing the world she was born to protect.

Hi GCReaders!

It's been a crazy three weeks. I haven't really had the time to sit down and recap the Alpha Goddess by Amalie Howard Release parties. And I say parties because author Amalie Howard was super excited and held TWO release parties!

First, she kicked off the release at Anderson's Book Shop in Larchmont, NY. She had food, drinks, a henna tattoo artist, and lots of swag & giveaways. It was so much fun! So many readers and close friends came out to support her. It was a really good event, and the food was AWESOME!

Second, she celebrated at Books of Wonder in NYC with cupcakes, M&M's, Chocolates and more!

Here are some pictures from both events (I also posted these on our Facebook page.)

Getting her henna tattoo! :)

Afterward we all went out to dinner at Texas Roadhouse! I love that place!

At the very end is Ren from A Little Bit of R&R & her little guy, Author Kristi Cook and Amalie Howard.

Yummy cupcakes, M&M's, and chocolate!!!

I also managed to record a video of Amalie Howard reading a sneak peek of ALPHA GODDESS. Check it out! 

You might have to raise the volume on your device. 

Well, there you have it! My amazing time in NY with author Amalie Howard! I am currently reading Alpha Goddess and I am really enjoying it! I love how different it is from other young adult novels today. It's super refreshing! Stay tuned for my review! 

Seventeen Magazine Summer Club author Amalie Howard grew up on a small Caribbean island where she spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book or being a tomboy running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees and dreaming of adventure. 22 countries, surfing with sharks and several tattoos later, she has traded in bungee jumping in China for writing the adventures she imagines instead. She isn’t entirely convinced which takes more guts. She currently resides in New York with her husband and three children.

She is the author of The Aquarathi series from Harlequin TEEN (Waterfell and Oceanborn), The Almost Girl from Strange Chemistry, Alpha Goddess from Sky Pony Press, and Bloodspell from Langdon Street Press. She is represented by the Liza Royce Agency. Visit her at www.amaliehoward.comor on Twitter (@AmalieHoward).
