SENTINEL Launch Party: Listen to the Tour Stop, Hear about the Fun, and Win a Giveaway!

Yesterday, I attended my first-ever Launch Party event. I've been to book signings before, but never a huge party! Spencer Hill Press knows how to put on a mean party, too! There was tons of swag, book giveaways, and they even made food...and a gorgeous cake!

Don't you want to dive right onto that table?

Look at that GORGEOUS cake!

I really wanted my fellow bookworms unable to make the tour stop to feel like they're there, so I have some pictures, a full audio recording of the Q&A, and an autographed giveaway for you! Sample BITTER SWEET LOVE before it's even out in style!

I didn't even know a reveal was happening at yesterday's event, yet we got two! One was accidental, when Jennifer L. Armentrout slipped while talking about her upcoming The Dark Elements series. The second book in the series will be called STONE COLD TOUCH. And the GoodReads fairies already know and have added this information! Add it TBR!

The biggest reveal, however, came cloaked in mystery:

I've never been to a reveal before, only seen them posted online. How exciting!!! What could it be???

Ahhhh, it's a SPIN-OFF SERIES!!!! 
(And it is ALREADY UP on Goodreads! TBR it NOW!!!)

Now that The Covenant Series has concluded, there's nowhere left to go. It's all tied up. Or is it? If, after finishing SENTINEL, you were like me and had a few unanswered questions... Well, here's the answer!

The Titan Series will feature Seth from The Covenant Series this time, not Alex. And Alex won't be in the first book at all! The first book in the series will be titled THE RETURN, and if you've finished Covenant, you're probably wondering about the Titans, too! I knew things couldn't be completely over!

I just....*flail!*

This IS NOT final cover art, just reveal art! The series will begin releasing in February 2015.

And do you see that TEAR in the corner of Seth's eye? A tear! Real emotion! Here's Jennifer Armentrout mimicking him after being asked about the emotion during the Q&A:

Are you excited? I'm excited! Seth was never my favorite character because he's arrogant and cocky, but I'm eager to see another side to him and fall in love! And I know Kat will be thrilled. She was Team Seth all the way until DEITY, when she finally crossed over to my Team Aiden bandwagon!
(Have you met my dear friend Kat yet? Her bi-weekly feature Kat's Korner debuted this past Friday!)

There were some great Q&As that really brought light to a lot of books that are out, coming out, or even the author's personal likes and dislikes!

Who are her favorite Can't-Wait-To-Read authors? Who wrote her favorite smexy scene? Will we ever get to see Aiden's POV from the end of SENTINEL? If she had to KILL/KISS/MARRY Daemon/Aiden/Seth, who would fall where...and why?

Check out the entire Q&A below. It's so much fun!!!

And since you ALREADY know I'm crazy, does it come as any surprise that I painted my nails to celebrate the Launch Party?

At first, I was going to do each nail a different color based on the BG of each book in The Covenant Series and stamp on silver flowers. But that would be a LOT going on. I decided to try out my new Pixie Dust Polish from Zoya instead! I focused on theming it after HALF-BLOOD because it's the first book published, the first I read, AND it's purple. So yeah...!

Check out today's Mad About Nails post for what went into this week's nail design if you're curious!

And audio recording of the SENTINEL Launch Party, 
which clocks in at just under an hour and a half!

 Grab some coffee and a cupcake, kick back, and relax!!!

Listen now!

Never read Jennifer L. Armentrout?

Never fear! I have reviews up of The Covenant Series featuring HALF-BLOOD if you have yet to read this amazing series, or my review of PURE, DEITY, ELIXIR and APOLLYON.  

I've also reviewed her stand-alone novels CURSED and FRIGID and done a guest post with both Armentrout and cover designer Kate Kaynak on the Covenant series design, as well a post with Armentrout on Halloween Memories!

#1 New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout Lives in West Virginia. 

All the rumors you heard about her state aren’t true. Well, mostly. When she's not hard at work writing, she spends her time, reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write. 

She is the author of the Covenant Series (Spencer Hill Press), the Lux Series (Entangled Teen), DON'T LOOK BACK (Disney/Hyperion) and a yet untitled novel (Disney/Hyperion), and new YA paranormal series with Harlequin Teen. 

Jennifer also writes New Adult and Adult romance under the pen name J. Lynn. The Gamble Brothers Series (TEMPTING THE BEST MAN/TEMPTING THE PLAYER) and WAIT FOR YOU. Under her pen name, she is published with Entangled Brazen and HarperCollins.

  1. I just about died when I read that Seth was going to get his own spin-off series. LOL. I'm so excited! But why 2015? It's so far away...
    And thanks for sharing! Sounded like a lot of fun. :)

    1. Books always release further away after being announced. Sometimes, the author is still writing it. There are also copyedits and a lot of other things that go into putting books together. Jen talked about how tight her schedule was atm. She has so much coming out right now, and needs to space books apart for promotional reasons, too!

  2. This looks so amazing - so jealous I wasn't able to go to this! I'm like you -- I am team Aiden ALL the way! I haven't gotten to read sentinel yet (soon!) but hopefully it'll make me like Seth a little bit more for this spin off series! So exciting!!

    1. Team Aiden!!! *swoon*
      Yes...I've never been a fan of Seth. I want that to change with this series! And titans! Oh yeah!

  3. This was a FANTASTIC first launch party for you to go to!! Thanks so much for the coverage of the event! and just fyi...Those awesome treats were actually made by fans! The cupcakes by the incredible Jen from and the cake by the awesome Vi (pronounced "Vee") from =)

  4. I thought they'd had the cupcakes commissioned! LOL! And I didn't know Vi made that cake!!! I need to go personally tell her how amazing that was, like, now! ....Or maybe when it's not 6:30 am, lol!

    Thanks for the update!!

    It really was! I wish more launch parties happened in this area. I could go to BOW in NYC on a Tues night, but I'd get home so late, and then work on Wednesday...meh...
