Previously, before my books were released, the titles would be made available on NetGalley in order to get advance reviews and create buzz. This time, though, the decision was made to handle things a little differently. Invitations were issued to a number of wonderful readers who had enjoyed the first book in the series, My Ex From Hell, to participate in this tournament and in exchange, receive an ARC of My Date From Hell. My hope was this would be a fun way to thank some of those readers who have been so incredibly supportive of me and my work.
For the next six weeks, I’ll be issuing video challenges, all to do with the book. The basic commitment of the participants in this tourney is to accept challenge five (happening in mid Oct) to review My Date From Hell on Goodreads. Other than that, they can choose to partake in as many or few challenges as they wish. The participants are welcome to use any content from the tournament on their blogs, if that helps them.
Plus, I’m offering prizes! (There has to be prizes.) Each challenge they complete gets them one entry into the grand prize draw. At stake is a signed copy of My Date from Hell, a very cool t-shirt featuring a design of one of Kai’s tattoos as mentioned in the book, AND getting to have a character named after them in the final book. The grand prize draw will happen on Nov. 15. By the way, the tattoo design is the stylized pomegranate tree featured in the tourney banner.
About My Date From Hell, The Blooming Goddess Trilogy #2:
Sophie Bloom’s junior year has been a bit of a train wreck. After the world’s greatest kiss re-awakened Sophie’s true identity as Persephone (Goddess of Spring and Savior of Humanity), she fought her dragon-lady guidance counselor to the death, navigated mean girl Bethany’s bitchy troublemaking, and dealt with the betrayal of her backstabbing ex, Kai (sexy Prince of Darkness). You’d think a girl could catch a break.
With Zeus stepping things up, it’s vital that Sophie retrieve Persephone’s memories and discover the location of the ritual to stop Zeus and Hades. So when Aphrodite strikes a deal that can unlock Sophie’s pre-mortal past, what choice does the teen goddess have but to accept?
The mission: stop media mogul Hermes from turning Bethany into a global mega-celebrity. The catch? Aphrodite partners Sophie and Kai to work together … and treat this suicide mission as a date. Which could work out for Sophie’s plan to force Kai to admit his feelings for her–if she doesn’t kill him first.
Add to that the fact that BFF Theo’s love life and other BFF Hannah’s actual life are in Sophie’s hands, and suddenly being a teenager—even a godlike one—seems a bit like … well, hell. Whatever happened to dinner and a movie?
The YA romantic comedy/Greek mythology fireworks continue to fly in My Date From Hell. Love meets comedy with a whole lot of sass in book two of this teen fantasy romance series. Breaking up is easy; dating is deadly.
About the Author:
Tellulah Darling is a firm believer that some of the best stories happen when love meets comedy. Which is why she has so much fun writing young adult romantic comedy novels. Her tales span contemporary, teen fantasy romance, and YA Greek mythology, and range from stand alone books to series.

Sassy girls. Swoony boys. What could go wrong?
