Wrecked Cover Reveal and Teen Ten Page Contest

Today I'm doing the cover reveal for Wrecked.

Wrecked by Alyssa Rose Ivy (Clayton Falls, #3) - Publication date: Spring/Summer, 2013
When your past catches up, it's time to stop running.

Jake Mathews messed up yet again— but this time his misstep lands him in the hospital. He wakes up to find the girl of his dreams and the memory of having his deepest secret revealed.

Emily Taylor needs a break. She's been working double shifts as a nurse just to pay the bills while trying to heal a broken heart. The last thing she needs is to fall for a patient.

Strapped with community service and the knowledge that he's disappointed everyone in his life, Jake is determined not to let Emily slip through his fingers. Emily wants Jake, but can she really open herself up to heartache again?

Cover designed by Once Upon a Time Covers.

Teen Ten Page Contest

Candy Apple Books is hosting the Teen Ten Page Contest. I copied the rules from Inklined.

Every four months and every time the blog gets to a fifty follower increment (like 50, 100, 350, 1750, ect.)  I'll host this contest.  So you enter your first paragraph and then you can e-mail me at sarah(dot)y(dot)faulkner(at)  Then, me and my friend Hannah, a fellow teen blogger over at Candy Apple Books will judge the entries and pick two winners.  These winners will get a ten page critique by a third party teen, who will change each contest.
You interested?  This contest opens 12:00 AM Sundaymorning!  I know, I can't wait either.

Each person may only submit one entry.  I'll reply when I get it, if you don't hear from me within 48 hours, send a follow up e-mail.  If you submit more then one entry per contest, you will be disqualified.
If you submit and you have a blog, you need to post about the challenge on your blog or grab the button for your site and never have to bother with posting.  If you do post, put the post link in your e-mail with your entry.
Your entry consists of your name, your e-mail address and the first paragraph  (it has to be shorter then 150 words)  of your YA novel or short story.

Here's an example of an entry.
