Starcrossed Blog Tour – Playlist

Posted 16 May, 2011 by Danny in Danny / 20 Comments

Hello, dear reader!!!


Today we’re beyond thrilled to have something
über special
über interesting
to share with you!
(Yes, Danny, all the umlauts are for you! Love, Pushy!)

That’s right, today is the day

we are officially kicking off the Starcrossed Blog Tour,
run by Kismet Book Touring!

This tour is full of wonderment,
awesome special features and incredible prizes.

We are happy to present the first stop here at the Bookworms.

If you follow the Bookworms already you might have seen that
Danny absolutely loved this book!
Loved, loved, loved it!

You can read her glowing review
and check out her interview with the main characters,

Helen and Lucas (they are so so cute together).

To set the mood for the upcoming Starcrossed release
on May 31st and the aforementioned blog tour,
we’d like to present you with Josie’s playlist:

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones
The lovely cutie is our master of all things music
so we asked her to
have a look at the music and tell us her thoughts:

cutie’s playlist thoughts: Oh how I lubs me a good playlist!!
And this one is a goodin’.
Muse and The Pixies are full of win.
And Radiohead always seems to bowl me over.

But who really stuck out to me in this playlist is Jose Gonzales.
I must admit, I had not heard of his brilliance before.
Cycling Trivialities is just beautiful.
I find it interesting that Ms. Angelini used it as inspiration
for the fight scene in the novel.

The song builds with an increasing tension
that gets your heart pumping
in an extremely unexpected way.

All I Need by Radiohead is
the perfect ending for the novel
and I can totally picture Lucas and Helen
at the end of the novel…
Why do Greek tragedies have to be so damn depressing…

Awwwww, wonderful right???

And please check out this wonderful book trailer,

We think it turned out fantastic
and makes you want to read Starcrossed

right now!

Finally, let us say a few words about the tour.

You have the chance to win a
Kindle 3
with a beautiful specially designed Starcrossed skin
and including a letter from Josie to the winner!
In addition you have the chance to win one of ten
Kindle 3 Starcrossed skins
(the same as you see applied to the Kindle above)
at the different tour stops and…

Savannah from Books with Bite
will be giving away 2 copies of Starcrossed!!!

Isn’t that amazing?

So, what, you may ask, do you need to do to enter yourself
to win such awsome-tastic prizes?!?!

All you have to do is follow the tour and collect words
from a love letter that
Lucas wrote to Helen
in a situation where they have argued
and haven’t talked with each other
and Lucas was devastated.

“The Letter That Was Never Sent”
was exclusively written for this blog tour
and if you want to know what Lucas wanted to tell Helen,
then stop by each tour stop.
(the full list of stops and dates can be found below)

Each day, a new piece of this letter will be available,
and the pieces are of course in chronological order of the tour stops.
(e.g. the first one, from the Bewitched Bookworms spot is below,
the next part of the letter will be available tomorrow at Stories and Sweets,
the third part will be available the day after that at Ellz Reads, and so on and so on…)

Not only though, will each stop present a piece of the letter.
Each piece of the letter will contain
one word (or two) which will appear in pink!

Each day, you’ll need to keep track of these pink words.
At the end of the tour this sentence
will be your ticket to enter to win the Kindle prize package!

So, without further ado….
The first part of Lucas’s letter to Helen is:

Did you figure out what today’s word is???
We hope so!

Don’t forget to check out the other tour stops
and get amazing insights into Josie herself

as well as Helen, Lucas and Claire!

    Awesome playlist! Anything Muse is great and loved Jose Gonzalez! I will have to add to my iPod. I'm so excited about this tour and I don't even get to win anything!! But I am so excited about this novel!! And the cover I get to give away and I'm dying to see who wins the Kindle 3 G with the Gelaskin cover. I love the Starcrossed Cover it's gorgeous! I'd almost get a Kindle for that alone:)

    Good luck everyone!

    Loved the playlist! It's always nice to see what kind of music inspires or helps to motivate the writer as they pen the words. The book trailer was great!
