How do you define the “Best Night Ever?” Does going on a mini shopping spree for a chic new outfit, dinner out with your bestie and seeing your favorite music act live in concert sound like it would do the trick? If so, read on!

To celebrate the release of TWISTED, the third book in her Intertwined series featuring Aden Stone, Gena Showalter is rocking out with her author buds on The TWISTED Tour.

At the end of the tour, fill out the form on the aforementioned TWISTED Tour contest webpage by matching the images you found to the authors’ websites that they were located on before Sunday, September 4th at 11:59pm ET. The winners will be randomly drawn and notified on or around September 9th, 2011.

Good Luck & ROCK ON!

The 411 on TWISTED: His vampire girlfriend might have brought him back to life, but he's never felt more out of control. There's a darkness within him, something taking over…changing him. Worse, because he was meant to die, death now stalks him at every turn. Any day could be his last.

Once upon a time, the three souls trapped inside his head could have helped him. He could have protected himself. But as the darkness grows stronger, the souls grow weaker—just like his girlfriend. The more vampire Aden becomes, the more human Victoria becomes, until everything they know and love is threatened.

Life couldn't get any worse. Could it?

TWISTED Tour Author Quiz: When I Was a Teen…

1. What did you do during your “Best Night Ever” as a teen?

We used to go dancing at "The Star Palace" or crash the local college's parking lot dances. But one of my favorite nights was when my best guy friend took me to dinner on a deserted island - which turned out to be a candlelit table in the middle of one of those concrete islands on University Avenue (the main drag in my town). His friend was dressed up as our waiter. It was probably highly illegal, but I loved the creativity.

2. What musical act topped the charts?

Wow. This will age me. Blondie was big back then. Call Me was one of my favorite songs. Also, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson, Donna Summer, Queen, Styx, Rod Stewart, The Police, The Spinners, Kool and the Gang... yeah. I'm old.

3. What was your favorite outfit to wear then that totally mortifies you now?

It wasn't so much the outfits as the hair. I had really big hair back then.

4. What was the most overused expression by you and your friends?

"Puh-leez" and "for sure!"

5. What did you think you would be when you “grew up?”
A historian/travel agent. (I planned to finance my historical research travels with comp trips.) At least I got the travel and love of history right...
