First of all, congrats to the Contest #3 winners: Way to go, Van P., Lucas W. and Angelou R.! It was interesting to me how much agreement there was among the entries. For instance, pretty much everyone agreed that Ranulf would definitely be in Glee Club. And pretty much everyone agreed that Raquel wouldn’t. You guys are definitely right on that last one — Raquel does Not. Do. Glee Club.

When one contest closes, another opens, which means it’s time for AUTUMN GIVEAWAY EXTRAVAGANZA Contest #4!

This week’s loot:

PARANORMALCY by Kiersten White! This book debuted on the NYT bestseller list earlier this year, and when you get to read it, you’ll see why. Evie’s a 16-year-old girl who loves pink and dreams of going to the prom — but she’s too busy working for a secret anti-paranormal government agency to have anything like a normal life. Not just fun but genuinely funny: If you enjoyed TV shows like “Supernatural” or “The X-Files,” you’ll love this one. Bonus: Autographed copy!

HOTHOUSE by Chris Lynch! If you’re an aspiring YA writer, particularly one interested in the more literary side of YA, you’ll want to check this out. Russ and DJ are high school friends brought closer after the deaths of their firefighter dads, who are being celebrated as heroes. But as more about the fatal accident is revealed, Russ has to learn what really happened and ask himself who his father really was. Deep and intense.

I SHALL WEAR MIDNIGHT by Terry Pratchett. If you haven’t discovered Terry Pratchett — one of the most hilarious and brilliant writers of scifi/fantasy/paranormal fiction during the past few decades — it’s time to start. (If you HAVE discovered Pratchett and his wonderful Tiffany Aching series, then you’re already eager to get your hands on this one!) I SHALL WEAR MIDNIGHT is the final book in the Tiffany Aching series, and special bonus: It’s an ARC, so you get your hands on it a wee bit early.

How do you enter? Just follow these easy steps:

1) Send an email to evernightclaudia at gmail dot com, with the subject line “Autumn Giveaway Extravaganza Contest #4,” or maybe just “Contest #4,” because it is increasingly clear to me that this is a really long title.

2) In the email, tell me which of the three books you’d like to get, or if you’d be interested in any of them, just say, “Surprise me!”

3) Also in this email, give me the name and address I should use to mail your copy if you win. (Yes, I’ll ship anywhere worldwide.)

I’ll choose three winners (one for each book, at random) on Monday, October 4. So get those entries in now!
