I feel like a broken record for saying that because I've been gone so much recently, thanks to ALA. (I'm really starting to miss you guys--and I can't wait to get back in the habit and catch up with you all.) But I'm hoping you'll bear with me for one more week while I battle to get things back to normal. And I wanted to reward you guys for sticking by me, so I decided a contest was in order. So I hereby launch: The Thank You For Patience Giveaway!
I picked up a LOT of ARCs at ALA--most of which are still on their way to me via UPS (stupid holiday mail schedule!!!!). But I carried a few of the most precious ones home in my suitcase, and--even though it kinda kills me to do it--I wanted the prize to be something extra special. So I'm giving away *sniffles* my ARC of a HIGHLY anticipated book *cries* coming out very soon. Maybe you've heard of it:
Yep--I'm parting with FOREVER, by the ever-awesome Maggie Stiefvater (who will be chatting with WriteOnCon tomorrow--have you marked your calendars?) THAT'S how much I love you guys.
And just in case you somehow don't know about Maggie's amazing books, here's the blurb for FOREVER:
The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie Stievater
In Maggie Stiefvater's SHIVER, Grace and Sam found each other. In LINGER, they fought to be together. Now, in FOREVER, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in.
Yeah--you know you want to read it. In fact, I know this is a book you're probably all DYING to get your hands on, so I'm going to make this a quick contest, so I can draw the winner before I head out of town.
To enter, make sure you follow my blog and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 pm PDT on Thursday, July 7th. I'll draw one random winner and post their name on Friday July 8th. International entries welcome. And if you're desperate for this prize and want more chances to win, I'm willing to give out one additional entry if you tweet, blog, or post on Facebook about this contest (so if you do all three, that would mean you'd have a maximum of 4 entries.) Just let me know what you did in the comments and I will tally your entries accordingly.
And make sure you come hang out with Maggie (and the rest of the fabulous Merry Sisters of Fate) at the WriteOnCon Live event tomorrow night at 9pm EDT!
Have a great week!
