We are thrilled to announce that DRAWING AMANDA by Stephanie Feuer has won our search for the Next Big YA Book! Congratulations to Stephanie. The book is slated for publication in May 2014 and will be available on all eBook retailers worldwide; the book also will be available as a trade paperback through major e-retailers.
Hipso’s contest, which ran over the summer months, was created to find new, innovative and unpublished voices in the Young Adult (YA) genre. “We had a lot of great submissions,” said Rob Simon, publisher of Hipso Media. “But we wanted to find a YA book that was fresh, important and had a story that would lend itself to eBook enhancements. In DRAWING AMANDA, we not only found a powerful and important story that we believe will resonate among YA readers and adults alike, we also found a book that will literally jump off the electronic pages with interactivity and animations.”
DRAWING AMANDA is set in the under-parented, high-expectation world of a Manhattan international prep school. Fourteen-year-old Inky Kahn, smarting from the death of his father, only wants to have his artwork seen and appreciated. When he submits a drawing of his secret crush – Amanda – to an Internet game developer, Inky inadvertently draws her into a cyber-stalker’s lair. Now Inky must use his art to save his muse and trap the creep before he ensnares anyone else.
This is Stephanie Feuer’s first novel. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, The New York Press, The Boston Herald, bettyconfidential.com and several literary magazines and anthologies.

Another great review of VALENTINA GOLDMAN’S IMMACULATE CONFUSION on GoodReads. One of our favorite parts of the review:
“… an engaging account of the inescapable journey of the human heart…”
Wow – check out this review for BLINK TWICE on the blog, Bitches n Prose. We especially like this part of her review:
“Blink Twice reads like a sexy dessert- tempting, sweet, drizzling, and so warm that you cannot help but to be lured in.”
Thank you, Jillyn!
