Facebook Competition for 'Sweet Venom' by Tera Lynn Childs!

Just a quick announcement: amazing competition has launched that you're not yet part of! I received Sweet Venom for review and am now sharing this opportunity with you!

Templar and Sweet Venom have an awesome Facebook competition running to find the next Sweet Venom Huntress!


One lucky fan will be featured as a cover star inside Book 3 of this YA trilogy

Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs is published 3rd September 2012

Templar Publishing will be engaging with fans directly in a Facebook promotion to launch Sweet Venom, the fast-paced YA trilogy about three demon-slaying sisters living in modern-day San Francisco.

Fans are invited to email a picture of their face, which will be superimposed on the Sweet Venom cover artwork (see above) and posted on Templar’s Facebook wall. Click HERE to enter.

Entrants will then be asked to get their friends to ‘like’ their picture. Author Tera Lynn Childs will then pick her favourite from the two entries with the most ‘likes’ and the winner will feature on the inside cover of Sweet Legacy, the final instalment of the Sweet Venom trilogy, when it is published in September 2013.

Magazines will be invited to spread the word of the competition via their social networks and Shout Magazine has confirmed it will feature via its Facebook (12,000 likes) and on Twitter (7,000 followers).

Jessica Dean, Marketing Manager at Templar said: “Tera Lynn-Childs has a really active social network and so connecting with her fans in this way seems a natural thing to do. We’re obviously hoping to raise awareness of the book and drive UK sales – but via a platform that Tera’s fans will understand and hopefully really enjoy.”

Author Tera Lynn-Childs, who is one of YA fiction’s rising stars, said : “I’m totally up for connecting with new and existing young readers, especially if it’s fun and innovative. I’m looking forward to seeing who the winner will be…”

Watch out, all you mythological beasties roaming the streets of San Francisco - There's a new kick-ass team of demon-fighters coming your way - Meet Grace, who just moved to San Francisco. It's a tiny bit scary, starting over, but it gets scarier when a minotaur walks in the door. And even more shocking when a girl who looks exactly like her turns up to fight the monster. Then, there's Gretchen, who is fed up of monsters pulling her out into the small hours, especially on a school night. Getting rid of a minotaur is just another notch on Gretchen's combat belt, but she never expected to run into this girl who could be her double in the process. And Greer, who has her life pretty well put together, thank you very much. But everything tilts sideways when two girls who look eerily like her appear on her doorstep and claim they're all sisters. These three teenage descendants of Medusa must reunite and embrace their fates in this unique paranormal world where monsters lurk in plain sight.
