Blog Tour: Jessie Harrell (Destined) Characters Guest Post + Prize Pack Giveaway

blog tour 38 Comments 23rd November, 2011

Hello everyone! Please help me welcome Jessie to the blog today, I’m so excited to be hosting her! Thank you for stopping by Jessie!

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve enjoyed the Destined blog tour even just a fraction of much as I have! I’ve now given away loads of e-ARCs of Destined, but today you can win one of the Destined prize packs. What’s included in the prize pack? Well, I’m so glad you asked!
* An autographed ARC of Destined
* An autographed (and handmade) bookmark
* A Destined notepad
* Psyche’s ring
To enter, just watch the Character Album (it literally only takes a minute), and tell me in the comments what character you’re most excited about getting to know better. The pictures in the album are all ones that I nabbed from the internet and hung on my own inspiration board above my desk. If I ever got stumped, or needed to think really hard about what a character’s facial expression would look like in a given scene, these are the faces (or in one case, just hair style) I turned to. I found that having a concrete example that I could turn to again (even for the minor characters) really helped them come to life in my own mind.

Playing in the background is what I consider to be Eros & Psyche’s “signature” song. It’s called “Crack the Shutters” by Snow Patrol. This is the only song I could think of — or wanted to listen to — when I was working on the Epilogue. Enjoy! And as I say on my website — if you love the song as much as I do, please buy it.

Be sure to include your e-mail address (so we can find you) and you can earn an extra point for tweeting about the contest. You can enter to win a second prize pack over at Angels and Demons and Portals. Oh my! [] Both contests will be open through midnight EST on Friday.

Thank you all for participating in this blog tour with me. I want to especially thank Damaris at Good Choice Reading for organizing the tour and being so amazing to work with. And finally, thank you to all the readers of Destined. I hope you all love reading the book as much as I loved writing it!

Thanks again Jessie for stopping by!

When Psyche receives a prophecy gone horribly wrong, she learns that even the most beautiful girl in Greece can have a hideous future. Her fate? Fall in love with the one creature even the gods fear.

As she feels herself slipping closer into the arms of the prophecy, Psyche must choose between the terrifyingly tender touch she feels almost powerless to resist and the one constant she’s come to expect out of life: you cannot escape what is destined.

Destined is a fresh and heartachingly romantic retelling of the Cupid & Psyche myth from debut novelist, Jessie Harrell.

Find Jessie at these websites!

    Ohh, Greek Mythology!!! Love it!
    In the video, Aphrodite stood out from all the other characters- except from Psyche. lol
    I won an e-book copy of Destined from Jessie Harrell, a day ago! But I would really really love to win the ARC. You see, I’m more of actual “holding the book while drinking coffee” person. haha
    Anyway, I loved Psyche’s character picture the most. Probably because of the eyes…

    Iris stands out to me; she looks intense, almost broody. For someone who’s the rainbow goddess, she doesn’t look very happy. :] Thanks for the prize pack giveaway!
