About AURACLE: 16 year old Anna Rogan has a secret she's only shared with her best friend, Rei; she can astrally project out of her body, allowing her spirit to explore the world and the far reaches of the universe.

When there's a fatal accident and her classmate Taylor takes over Anna's body, what was an exhilarating distraction from her repressive home life threatens to become a permanent state. Faced with a future trapped in another dimension, Anna turns to Rei for help. Now the two of them must find a way to get Anna back into her body and stop Taylor from accusing an innocent friend of murder. Together Anna and Rei form a plan but it doesn't take into account the deeper feelings that are beginning to grow between them.
BIO: Gina Rosati was born and raised in Boston suburbia, and now lives in southern New Hampshire with her husband and two teenagers. AURACLE is her debut novel.

  1. Annotated books are a labor of love, and authors don't do them often because they take a lot of time. I have done two annotated copies of Auracle, and this would be the third and most likely last. If you've wondered whywhyWHY I did the things I did in AURACLE, now's your chance to find out. I'll handwrite all sorts of notes about how I came up with this stuff, give you a few deleted scenes and tell you why they were cut, introduce characters who didn't survive the edits, I'll include a few visuals of what Rei and Anna look like to me, and I'll talk about my editing process.

  2. I thought I had left a comment earlier but I'll bid $20 for this.

  3. I'll bid $25 :) email is deviantzangel at gmail

  4. This auction is now closed--congratulations to Shellie on a winning bid of $25!

    I'll send the winner an email shortly confirming the winning bid along with payment/donation instructions.
