SHADE release!

Congratulations and a mighty woo-HOO to regional member Jeri Smith-Ready

… for yesterday’s release of SHIFT, a sequel to SHADE and the second in a young adult paranormal trilogy about a world of ghosts only the young can see!

Aura’s life is anything but easy.  Her boyfriend Logan died, and his slides between ghost and shade have left her reeling.  Aura knows that he needs her now more than ever.  She loves Logan, but she can’t deny her connection to the totally supportive, totally gorgeous Zachary. And she’s not sure that she wants to.

Logan and Zachary will fight to be the one by her side, but Aura needs them both to uncover the mystery of her past—the mystery of the Shift.

As Aura’s search uncovers new truths, she must decide whom to trust with her secrets…and her heart.

Smith-Ready changes the world simply by changing our ability to see. — Publishers Weekly, starred review, on SHADE

SHADE is a hauntingly good story and an intriguing beginning to a new series. Jeri Smith-Ready proves again why she is one of my very favorite reads! — PC Cast, New York Times-bestselling author of the House of Night series

This sequel to SHADE will not disappoint fans of paranormal romance with its blend of action, starcrossed lovers, and entanglements, both dangerous and sexy. — Booklist


I absolutely loved SHADE, so I’m looking forward to getting my copy!  And for the Maryland folks, there will be a launch party at Constellation Books Reisterstown, MD this Friday, May 6th from 6:00 to 9:00 with pizza, OH YES, there will be pizza.

The bookstore will also be holding their usual First Friday wine tasting, with sparkling cider and sodas for the under-21s as well as cookies and brownies from Starry Night Bakery

Again, congratulations, Jeri, for your latest release!  We wish you all the best. 🙂
