· draw a card from the deck
· kill or be killed
· and if you’re lucky, repeat…

Hidden agendas, deep, dark secrets, and monsters lurking around every locker. It’s business as usual at Redgrave High for Eryn and her crew of paranorm hunters – they plan to capture and cure Brit’s brother from his tormented existence, Eryn is reunited with her father’s beta, and Redgrave’s origins are revealed.

Although the two guys vying for Eryn’s heart just might have to up their game. Enter hot, wolven guy stage left. Is he the one Alec’s blood magic foretold? He is, if Eryn’s knocking pulse has anything to say about it. The tale-tell sound is driving Wade mad. But it’s Eryn’s move, and everyone is holding their breath.

A little healthy competition soon becomes all-out survival of the fittest as the crew are pitted against a pack of demons trading souls – for keeps. The student population is enamored with a new card game, Boroughs Quest. Kids are desperate to get their hands on gilded cards from a mysterious expansion deck, but when they do…

It’s all fun and games ’til somebody dies. 

Skin of My Teeth is finally ready to rumble and we wanted to make it a fun, interactive experience. We decided to release it in three ebook volumes that will be compiled into a final, full novel – ultimately released in both ebook and paperback. In this book, Eryn and her crew battle against a pack of demons working through specific cards used in a trading card game. Here’s where the interactive stuff comes in. With the launch of each volume, some wonderful bloggers will release a virtual copy of a card that YOU can use to unlock extra scenes. We will also include a card at the end of each ebook volume.

Therefore, in total you can potentially access six additional scenes. Best part about these extras? They’re not told from Eryn’s point of view. Nope. You’ll be drawn into Wade’s mind, feel the emotions Alec has brewing for Eryn….from HIS side of the story, and discover a few secrets along the way.

So get in the game and get under the skin of not just Eryn…but other key characters in the world of Redgrave!

Announcements and reminders will be made prior the launch of each ebook volume on the Leap Books Facebook page as well by participating bloggers and Leap Books!

“Smart, sassy and more than a little scary, Second Skin hits all the right notes. I adored reading about Eyn and her attempts to deal with her life!” ~ Amanda Ashby

…fans of paranormal YA fiction will appreciate a protagonist with attitude and anticipate the next volume…” ~ CM Magazine on UNDER MY SKIN by @judithgraves

That's right! Leap Books has added some helping hands to our roster and we're super excited!
From diving into the slush pile, to marketing our amazing 2015 catalogue, to making sure we're heard on social media --- these gals are the real deal!
Heather Elia has been in love with books since the age of 4, when her parents cleverly realized that the best way to keep a curious, strong-willed little girl occupied was to teach her to read. This passion for the written word eventually led to part-time jobs (in a book-bindery and a library) and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Cornell University. Heather has spent most of her adult years working in college bookstores but is now branching out to pursue other opportunities in the world of books. She lives in upstate New York in a drafty, creaking, 140-year-old (disappointingly un-haunted) farmhouse with her husband and more books than she can ever hope to read in one lifetime.
April lives in Arkansas and four days a week tends to live as a vampire sleeping by day and baking by night. Young Adult genre is her escape and craves the fantasy and thriller worlds. When April isn’t working or sleeping she enjoys searching the internet for new ways to spread the word about books. One of those ways is through her blog, Written to Our Hearts. She originally started blogging in 2009.
April is thrilled about her opportunity to work for Leap Books. She has long wanted to work for a publishing house and she is looking forward to finding ways to bring some wonderful books to the fore front. In addition to sharing the news of books April is an introvert, TV and movie fanatic, and has a major sweet tooth.
Tanya Contois started out as a blogger and book reviewer in 2008. She now spends her time reading, reviewing books, listening to music, and hanging out with her mom and cat. She also writes a weekly recap of Once Upon a Time for the website Geeks Unleashed.
