Lisa and I have put together a little contest for you, and it's super easy. All you have to do is think up a song suggestion (just one!) to add to the River of Time series playlist. It cannot be one that has already been suggested by Lisa on the Facebook page. Because there isn't actually a specific page for the playlist, I've compiled as many as I could find in the list below.
Drifting - Plumb (ft. Dan Haseltine)Tell us your entry using the form below, and you're in! This giveaway ends on Saturday, October 15, 2011, and is open to the US only. I'm sorry, but I'm poor! :(

I think I'm forgetting something... OH YEAH. The prize! The best song choices (chosen by Lisa herself) will be featured on the list and out of them, one will receive a set of all three books in the series (Waterfall, Cascade, Torrent), plus two signed bookmarks! From the remaining winners I will choose one randomly to receive a copy of Waterfall and two signed bookmarks.
If you have not read the series yet, never fear! You might get a good idea of the series from the recent River of Time series tour, my interview with the author and Gabi, the blurbs below, or by purchasing an eBook (Amazon, B&N) of Waterfall for just $7.99 - totally worth it!
Lisa Tawn Bergren's new YA series, River of Time, is romantic, historical fiction in which the plucky heroine doesn't have to fear a vampire's bite but must still fight for her life.
In Waterfall, American teenager Gabi Betarrini accidently finds herself in Fourteenth-Century Italy . . . Knights. Swords. Horses. Armor. And Italian hotties. Most American teens want an Italian vacation, but the Betarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives there with their archaeologist parents. Stuck on yet another hot, dusty dig, they are bored out of their minds... until they place their hands atop handprints in an ancient tomb and find themselves catapulted into the Fourteenth Century and in the middle of a fierce battle between knights bent on killing one another.
Mom touched my underdress—a gown made six hundred years before—and her eyes widened as she rubbed the raw silk between thumb and forefinger. She turned and touched Lia’s gown. “Where did you get these clothes?”
Gabi knows she’s left her heart in the fourteenth century and she persuades Lia to help her to return, even though they know doing so will risk their very lives. When they arrive, weeks have passed and all of Siena longs to celebrate the heroines who turned the tide in the battle against Florence—while the Florentines will go to great lengths to see them dead.
But Marcello patiently awaits, and Gabi must decide if she’s willing to leave her family behind for good in order to give her heart to him forever.
When Gabi and Lia finally learn to surf the river of time, they realize they must make hard choices about life and love in the third and final book in the River of Time series.
Gabi and Lia Betarrini have learned to control their time travel, and they return from medieval Italy to save their father from his tragic death in modern times. But love calls across the centuries, and the girls are determined to return forever—even though they know the Black Plague is advancing across Europe, claiming the lives of one-third of the population. In the suspenseful conclusion of the River of Time series, every decision is about life … and death.
