Rachel Van Dyken Got the Contract Blog Hop

Welcome to the Rachel Van Dyken Got the Contract Blog Hop! We're celebrating Rachel's new contract with Grand Central Publishing for her New Adult novels THE BET, THE WAGER (coming soon), ELITE, and ELECT (coming soon). To give you an idea of how HUGE this accomplishment is, Nicholas Sparks' books are published by Grand Central!

(Pick up Rachel's books while they're still 99 cents!!)

I met Rachel through our publisher Astraea Press, where Rachel made a name for herself with her best-selling regency romance stories. She released her first book in the summer of 2011 and became a USA Today Best Selling Author later that year. Rachel's success has been a great inspiration to all of us at Astraea, and I dream of one day joining her at the top of the charts!

To celebrate Rachel's fantastic achievement, I'm giving away a signed copy of her #1 best-selling regency romance WALTZING WITH THE WALLFLOWER. It's autographed by both Rachel and her co-author Leah Sanders. I'm also including a signed LIFE ON THE EDGE bookmark! LIFE ON THE EDGE is the first book in my EDGE series. It's a New Adult romance set against the backdrop of the glitzy yet grueling world of competitive figure skating. Here's the blurb!

Nineteen-year-old Emily is new to pairs skating, but she and her partner Chris have a big dream - to be the first American team to win Olympic gold. Their young coach Sergei, who left Russia after a mysterious end to his skating career, believes they can break through and make history.

Emily and Chris are on track to be top contenders at the 2002 Winter Games. But when forbidden feelings spark between Emily and Sergei, broken trust and an unexpected enemy threaten to derail Emily's dreams of gold.

Book #2, EDGE OF THE PAST, was released last fall, and the final book in the trilogy, FIGHTING FOR THE EDGE, will be out in November!

  2. I've read Life On the Edge and loved it, and have Edge of the Past on my wish list :-)

  3. So good of you to help celebrate Rachel's new success with this hop, Jennifer! Goodreads, I'm certain I'll be reading yours soon too! During the Winter Olympics I'm a figure skating fanatic and you can't move me from the TV as I'm riveted to it. If someone wants to watch something else, I tell them to go to the other TV in the house. :-) jdh2690@gmail.com
