Blog Tour: EMPTY by K.M. Walton - Mega Prize Pack Giveaway

Happy Release Day!

I'm so excited to announce that EMPTY is available to the world today. I have a couple surprises for you. I hope you enjoy them. Oh. Don't forget to enter to win the super groovy giveaways I have to offer. One EMPTY Grand Prize Pack. Which includes a finished - signed copy of EMPTY, Swag and a Purple Post-It Dispenser. The second which will be posted a little later consists of a finished - signed copy of K.M. Walton's first novel, CRACKED, some fabulous swag and a super awesome surprise item.

Dell is used to disappointment.

Ever since her dad left, it’s been one let down after another. But no one—not even her best friend—gets all the pain she’s going through.

So Dell hides behind self-deprecating jokes and forced smiles. Then the one person she trusts betrays her. Dell is beyond devastated.

Without anyone to turn to for comfort, her depression and self-loathing spin out of control.

But just how far will she go to make all of the heartbreak and name-calling stop?

"I intended Dell’s story to serve as a window into her soul—the soul of a broken human being. I wanted you, precious reader, to feel the pain of the bullied, the neglected, the heartbroken, and the humiliated. I wanted you to experience the absolute power of hateful words – whether said or typed online. Words count." --From the Author's Note

"I must have listened to "Codex" by Radiohead and "Paradise" by Coldplay a million times while writing EMPTY, and with each listen I put myself in Dell's shoes. In my mind, "Codex" is for her and "Paradise" is about her." -K.M. Walton

K. M. Walton is the author of Cracked (Simon Pulse ~ Simon & Schuster 2012) Empty (Simon Pulse ~ Simon & Schuster 1-1-2013) and the co-author of Teaching Numeracy: 9 Critical Habits to Ignite Mathematical Thinking (Corwin Press 2011 - lead author Margie Pearse) for mathematics teachers K - 8.
