Flame- Mari Arden Release Day Blitz

Flame, by the super sweet Mari Arden is out today! A peek of Flame was included at the end of Fighter.  It's only .99 cents! (I think this is only temporary, so get it cheaper while you can!)

Some secrets change your life forever. 

Have you ever felt invisible? I do. Everyday. I can't get close to anyone, and people can't get close to me. Everytime I feel a friendship beginning, something inevitably happens, and I become invisible again. Unseen. Ignored. It's been a part of me for so long that it's hard to imagine anything different. 

Then the Saguinox arrive, and my life is forever altered. People are fascinated by these beautiful creatures who look and talk like us. They're alluring. Seductive. Intoxicating. And two of them are going to my school. Rhys is everything I shouldn't want, but his eyes are like something from a memory. I can't help but be intrigued. He's the only one who can really see me. 

Some secrets you're better off not knowing. 

I had been found on a cold winter night with nothing but a blanket, and ashes covering my skin. My mother saved me from death, and took me in with love. But she couldn't save herself. I didn't think heroes were real anymore until the day Kaiden saved me. I couldn't believe in miracles until the day he revealed I was the miracle they had all been hoping for. Deep inside I always knew my past mattered.

I just didn't know my life would depend on it.

I'm Mari Arden (Mari rhymes with safari). Teacher by day, author by night. When I'm not living my double life I like to hike and try foods from all over the world. Up until recently, I used to be scared of dogs. Even puppies. True story. Now I'm just afraid of anything with more than six legs. I write to soothe my soul and to, hopefully, entertain YOU. Adventurous? Come join my double life!

The winner of the Teaser giveaway yesterday was Sabrina D. I have sent the winner an email but in case you didn't get it, email your address info to

Unraveling Teaser Tuesday #3

"Please, Katy, you have to open up to me sometime. Let me in," he pleaded.

"I- I- can't," I sobbed.

"You can, Katy. You're stronger than you think. Let me in, you can do it, let me see all you."

I've been doing the giveaway solely on my facebook page, but facebook has changed their rules (I honestly don't know what's going on with them, but apparently we can't hold giveaways on there anymore, and since I don't want to get kicked off, rafflecopter it is) But this is a good thing, because you can now share on twitter, so you get two entries instead of one. If you share on twitter be sure to tag my username @msmeltzer9793 so that I know you shared it. :)

Unraveling currently haas 399 to-be-read adds on Goodreads. When it reaches 500 I will release a long teaser!
