Blog Tour / Giveaway: DOOMED by Tracy Deebs


I'm excited to be kicking off a week long tour for Tracey Deeb's upcoming YA dystopian, DOOMED (which releases next Tuesday 1/8/13). This week long tour will feature excerpts from the book along with a giveaway!  


The Tour:

Welcome to the Doomed Scavenger Hunt!   Over the next eight days, Tracy Deebs and Mundie Moms are sending you on a scavenger hunt through eight different blogs.  In Doomed, the three main characters embark on a scavenger hunt that winds itself through a video game and the real world in order to stop a countdown to nuclear annihilation.  Our scavenger hunt is nowhere near as complicated-- or as scary-- as what Pandora and her friends have to go on.  Instead, all you have to do is visit the eight sites, read the excerpts and find the hidden number in each of the entries.  At the end of the eight days, add up all eight of the numbers and include them in the rafflecopter entry spot for the Scavenger Hunt to earn 10 extra entry points for $75 gift card to your choice of Amazon, Barnes and Noble or Apple.  There are also prizes to be won at every stop, so make sure to get your entries in and be sure to comment on each of the blogs to be entered to win.  Happy hunting!!!!!

About the book:




Beat the game. Save the world.

Pandora’s just your average teen, glued to her cell phone and laptop, surfing Facebook and e-mailing with her friends, until the day her long-lost father sends her a link to a mysterious site featuring twelve photos of her as a child. Unable to contain her curiosity, Pandora enters the site, where she is prompted to play her favorite virtual-reality game, Zero Day. This unleashes a global computer virus that plunges the whole world into panic: suddenly, there is no Internet. No cell phones. No utilities, traffic lights, hospitals, law enforcement. Pandora teams up with handsome stepbrothers Eli and Theo to enter the virtual world of Zero Day. Simultaneously, she continues to follow the photographs from her childhood in an attempt to beat the game and track down her father, her one key to saving the world as we know it. Part The Matrix, part retelling of the Pandora myth, Doomed has something for gaming fans, dystopian fans, and romance fans alike.

Tracy Deebs collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. From the first page of that first book, she knew she’d found her life-long love. Now a writing instructor at her local community college, Tracy writes YA novels that run the gamut from dark mermaids and witches to kissing clubs and techno-Armageddon stories… and she still has a soft spot for Judy Blume.
