Cinder Blog Tour Stop #19: Techniques for Cinder--AND A GIVEAWAY!

Yay--you found us! Welcome to the 19th stop of the official CINDER blog tour--only one more exciting day to go after this (I know, are you as sad as I am?????)


And yes--as the title claims I DO have an awesome giveaway for you guys--but first I have an exciting guest vlog from the lovely author herself--the amazing Marissa Meyer. Take it away, Marissa!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you so much, Shannon, for being a part of the Cinder Blog Tour! Today I come bearing a vlog, in which I:

- eat good food
- crawl under a car
- demonstrate that tomboyish Cinder is way cooler than I am

Enjoy!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hee--it takes true dedication to crawl under a car on a cold snowy day! *shivers* (Though I think my favorite part might be the catfight)

I've already gushed about my serious love for CINDER here, but if you need more proof of its awesomeness--or are just dying to get your hands on a copy--I'm giving away a hardcover to one lucky commenter on this post. AND THAT'S NOT ALL! The winner also gets a super cool CINDER mirror. (trust me guys, its an extra awesome piece of swag).

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post by11:59 pm PST on Saturday, January 28th. I'll draw one random winner and post their name on Sunday January 29th. And since I'm not taking care of the shipping this time, I have to limit this it US only. 

And if you want to hit the last stop of the tour, make sure you check out www.novelnovice.com tomorrow!

  15. This book is so on my TBR list! I really want it!

    Marissa - I love how you highlighted the physical aspect of research. So often, we think of research as surfing the web or going to the library. Not so.

    Have a great weekend!
