Leave your name in the comments below to enter the book giveaway for THE SISTERS EIGHT: ANNIE'S ADVENTURES and DURINDA'S DANGERS by Lauren Baratz-Logsted, Greg Logsted & Jackie Logsted! The winner will be announced tomorrow afternoon.



ANNIE"S ADVENTURES, BOOK 1: A rather large problem has befallen the Huit girls. (Sisters, actually. Octuplets to be exact.) One particular New Year’s Eve, the girls wait for their mommy to bring them hot chocolate and their daddy to return with more wood for the fire. But they don’t. Mommy and Daddy, that is. They’re gone. Poof! Maybe dead—no one knows for sure.You must see the problem here. Eight little girls on their own, no mommy or daddy to take care of them. This is not a good thing.So now these little girls, must take care of themselves. Get to school, cook the meals, feed the cats (eight of them, too), and pay the bills. They can’t ask for help, oh no. Any self-respecting adult would surely call in social services, and those well-meaning people would have to split them up. After losing their parents, being split up would be completely unbearable.At the same time, the question remains:What happened to Mommy and Daddy? The Sisters Eight (as they are called, affectionately and otherwise) are determined to find out. Luckily, they do seem to have someone or something helping them. Notes keep appearing behind a loose brick in the fireplace.It’s a good old-fashioned mystery with missing (or dead) parents, nosy neighbors, talking refrigerators, foul-smelling fruitcake (is there any other kind?), and even a little magic. Eight little girls, eight cats, and one big mystery—let the fun begin!Annie’s Adventures, wherein the girls’ parents go missing (or die) and the girls learn each one has a power and gift. Annie, being the oldest, is the first to discover hers.

DURINDA'S DANGERS, BOOK 2: Durinda’s Dangers, wherein Durinda, second in line, discovers her power and gift. Boy, is her power a doozy!


>>>>>>>>>CHAT REMINDER!!!!<<<<<<<<<<

On Thursday, March 19th at 9pm ET, The Knight Agency is hosting authors Lauren Baratz-Logsted and Greg Logsted in our chat room. This amazing husband and wife team joined forces with their 8 year old daughter, Jackie, to co-author THE SISTERS EIGHT, which follows the adventures of 8 year old octuplets as they search for their lost parents and along the way discover that they each possess a magical talent.

Lauren is an accomplished author with more than a dozen books for both teens and adults under her belt. Her YA books include ME, IN BETWEEN, SECRETS OF MY SUBURBAN LIFE and the upcoming CRAZY BEAUTIFUL (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, September 2009), a modern re-telling of Beauty & The Beast starring a boy with hooks for hands who meets the girl of his dreams on the first day of school. Greg recently released his debut YA novel SOMETHING HAPPENED (Simon & Schuster, November 2008) and his sophmore effort ALIBI JUNIOR HIGH (Simon & Schuster) will be released this June.

This amazing family of writers has a lot of advice to share about writing for the YA audience. Don't miss out on the opportunity to pick their brains on topics such as the latest trends in the market or how to promote books to teens!

During the chat, we will give away a copy of ANNIE'S ADVENTURES, signed by all three authors, as well as an autographed copy of Greg Logsted's SOMETHING HAPPENED!

Octuplets, how timely...
I'm one of a quartet myself and we're all troublemakers. It sounds like a fun read, a great adventure. Good luck with its success!
