A Touch Mortal’s Assortment of Awesome Contest!
THE CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED! I’LL BE POSTING WINNERS SOON!!!
YOU GUYS BLEW ME AWAY WITH THE ENTRIES!
Well, this blog is quickly becoming known only as “That Place Where She Posts Contests.” I don’t think that’s gonna change much…but you don’t mind, right? Chances are you got here by clicking the info in my YA Rebels vlog so you already know the fun news!
They’re beautiful and stackable and they came in a great big box! And while I’d love to keep them all and run them through escape drills, sometimes it’s best to
sleep more, take your meds, share the wealth! *
But there is an ulterior motive for this contest. See, I’m moving in a few weeks. And I have a LOT of books. In fact, I have so many I couldn’t get a decent picture. My shelves run all the way around my basement, and they’re full. One entire wall is a bookshelf. Full. Bedside table? Embarrassingly full. And the thought occurred to me yesterday, that I will have to pack all those books and carry all those books and guys, that is not something I want to do. I want to mail them. To you.
In fact, I want to mail lots of stuff to you! Things like cool swag necklaces and earrings I bought and strange knickknacks and possibly signed pages from the manuscript edits of A Touch Mortal. See, my basement is not like Great Aunt Mildred’s basement. My basement has things like signed copies of Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting, Afterlife by Claudia Gray and Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton.**
So here’s how it’s gonna work. Five prize packs. Each one comes with a signed copy of A Touch Mortal. You’ll also get an Assortment of Awesome! Could be anything. Keep in mind, I’m a strange one.*** In addition, when I contact the winners, they can stake a claim to which of the other signed books they’d like (first come first serve).
How to enter:
First, like the vlog. Those books are vain (did you see the one that stopped to look in the mirror? Yeah, that’s Francine. Total diva). They need some love…er, like.
Second, spread the word. Post about the vlog on Twitter. Blog about the ninja repelling moves. Status it on the Book of teh Face. Vlog it yourself. Hang a banner of A Touch Mortal**** from a tall building in front of a busy street. (PS. If you do this…well, let’s just say I’ll have an extra prize, and it will be fawesome. PSS. Don’t fall.*****). (EDIT: Rumor on the street is that the most crazy/insane/creative entry is going to get a signed copy of A Touch Mortal with extra content. Since I made up the rumor I’m pretty sure it’s true. Extra content could be a deleted scene. Could be the first chapter of Book 2? Either way, I’ll make sure it’s something kickass!) Get that word out. Each place you post about the vlog is an entry. Leave me a comment on this blog entry with a link. Entering multiple times on different days is cool (Tweet Monday, tweet Tuesday= two entries). Shortened link to the vlog: http://dft.ba/:ATMVlog
In addition to the five prize boxes, I have a lot of neat stuff laying around, so if you do something awesome, I’ll probably send something extra your way! Have fun and be creative!
This contest will end March 31st at 11:59pm.
Because most of the packages will be large, the prizes will only be open to US/Canada. I try to open these up international as much as I can, but unfortunately this just wasn’t one of those times.
* There will probably be more contests soon! Most likely spontaneous, so keep an eye on twitter!
**I got to sign with them at the Dark Days of Supernatural stop in Minneapolis! SO FUN!
***No, you can’t have my John Green signed Peeps.
****If you haven’t heard of A Touch Mortal it starts out pretty “supernatural boy meets mortal girl and life is worth living again”. But romance isn’t always smiles and sparkles. Sometimes fifty pages in your true love takes a header off a balcony. Sometimes you get stuck hanging out with death obsessed schizophrenics “for your protection.” And when those are the high points in your day, the afterlife starts to be a real bitch. Sound cool?
*****Ha! ATM balcony death jokes FTW!
