Brodi Ashton Everneath Book Launch and Swag Giveaway

25 Jan, 2012 by in swag giveaway 43 comments

Brodi Ashton wowed us all with her knack for public speaking, making us laugh and pulling in a HUGE crowd last night at the King’s English Everneath book launch event. The 15th street gallery was completely packed to capacity with people standing in both rooms. Brodi had a power point presentation describing her path to being published. She queried over 165 agents before landing her first representation as an author. She even had a laminated scroll of all the letters to show us how persistence pays off. Her first book queried, Echo was set in Idaho, about a journalist who is abducted by aliens. While never accepted, her beta readers stand behind it as a hit.

 Everneath is the first in a trilogy published by Balzer and Bray, the title a combination of forever and underneath, suggested by Brodi’s critique partner and YA author Bree Despain. It features protagonist, Nikki who is quiet and broken after having made a decision which affects the next 100 years. Revisions on book two are currently in the works and must be submitted soon, it will be released in January 2013.

 Present at the event were local authors Sara Zarr, Elana Johnson, Nichole Giles, Natalie Whipple, Matthew Kirby, Bree Despain, Emily Wing Smith, Heather B Moore and Angela Corbett. Book bloggers included Fire and Ice, Amy O of Eve’s Fan Garden, NewUTMommy, SLC Bookworm, Erin Olds, Catie S, Maw Books, EmsReadingRoom, CranberryFries, Toomuchaubrey, BooksATrueStory and SueySays.  It was fun for me because also there were many members of Brodi and my junior high and high school classes as well as her immediate family.

Brodi signed copies of her book which sold out before everyone could get a copy! On hand was an Everneath sheet cake as well as lots of goodies for those waiting in the line which stretched through the entire store.
She also gave away Dead Elvis guitar pick necklaces, temporary tattoos and book marks which we are giving away in a swag pack below. (Book not included) Open internationally, simply comment to enter. Thanks again to Brodi and TKE for the great event! See all of our photos on Facebook and SmugMug.

    This event was so fun! There were so many people there that I didn’t even meet! I had no idea all those authors were there LOL. And so many book bloggers that I haven’t met yet! I think I even saw Ally Condie there for a little bit. I’ll have to meet them next time 😀

    I am really wishing I still lived in Utah right now. It seems all of the authors are taking a pit stop there to party. Don’t any of them want to come and party on the coast. What is not to love?
