Across the Universe Exclusive!



I'm taking a break from promoting our new book site, BooKrushed, (opps... I did it again!) today, because I have something very important to talk about.

The date is 1/11/11, which, under normal circumstances would be just a regular day in January. However, today isn't any regular old day. Today is the day I finally get to get my hands on a copy of Across the Universe! And you just don't know how excited I am about that!

In order to help spread the word (as if there was anyone who didn't already know) about the release of Beth Revis's (blog & Twitter) debut novel, I, along with many other fellow bloggers teamed up with Penguin (Penguin Twitter & Facebook) to bring you a bunch of ATU goodies you won't want to miss!

So, just sit back, relax and let the good ship Godspeed take you on one super fun and exciting journey!


Today I'm pulling out all stops. And to begin this journey I'm going to give you a io9 EXCLUSIVE! If you really can't wait until you get off of work/school to begin reading, just visit this link and you can start reading Across the Universe now! (Just try and make it look like you're doing important stuff when you boss/teacher walks by! Don't you love how interchangeable that sentence is? )

At exactly 11:11 AM io9 will post an 111 page excerpt from Across the Universe. But you better hurry, because the freebie read only lasts until 11:11 PM.

Click here to read the io9 111 page excerpt from Across the Universe!

That's not all the exclusives we have for you today, though. Below we have the official, exclusive, never before seen author video from Beth Revis.



And the official Across the Universe trailer.




Phew. Are you tired yet? I certainly hope not because today the Across the Universe website is being launched. And I've heard there are all sorts of cool things to explore, namely the Godspeed itself.

So be sure to check it out! And if you haven't gotten enough of Across the Universe in one sitting, head over to ATU's facebook page where you're sure to meet tons of super awesome people who are just as excited about ATU's release as you are!

And if you can't stomach getting out to buy your copy today, just stay in your pjs and order it here!

I hope you enjoyed your journey on the Godspeed today! See you guys later!
