First of all, congrats to the winners of Contest #4: Anne V. will receive the autographed copy of PARANORMALCY, Lani A. gets HOTHOUSE, and Donna S. is the lucky winner of I SHALL WEAR MIDNIGHT!
Today, while browsing through the Halloween superstore looking (in vain, what is wrong with people) for the missing components of my Sue Sylvester costume, I came across the novelty socks and promptly snapped up a pair with skulls on them. They will be worn long after October ends; I am sort of stupidly pleased with them, really. Sometimes, the funniest things will brighten up your whole day. So, in honor of these socks — and all the weird little pleasures life can provide — we now have AUTUMN GIVEAWAY EXTRAVAGANZA Contest #5!
Don’t panic. The prize is not socks. The prizes are three ARCs (though the book are just now coming out, so they’re not that far in advance — but the books are so cool it hardly matters.) They are:
THE FRENZY by Francesca Lia Block. Everything FLB touches is gold, so you know you want to check out her werewolf romance. Something happened to Liv when she was 13, something that changed her whole life. Now she only feels like herself when she’s out in the woods — or with her boyfriend, Corey. But danger lurks in the woods, and secrets too ….
ASCENDANT by Diana Peterfreund. Did you love last year’s RAMPANT, with the truth about unicorns and the need for unicorn hunters? Then you’re already eager to get your hands on the sequel. Astrid has a chance to leave the Cloisters, now that she’s a fully trained hunter. But she starts questioning everything she knows, from her love for Giovanni to the justice of her fight.
NIGHTSHADE by Andrea Cremer. One of the fall’s most anticipated books! Calla has grown up as a werewolf, knowing she will someday be the mate of their sexy alpha, Ren. But when she rescues a handsome human male in the woods — violating the laws of the pack — she has to decide whether she can fulfill what she thought was her destiny, or whether she has to create her own path.
These all sound pretty great, right? So you want to know how to enter!
1) Send an email to evernightclaudia at gmail dot com, and include the name and address I would send your prize to.
2) Tell me the weirdest pair of socks you (or your friend, or your mom, or your freakish brother) have ever owned!
3) Also tell me which of the three books you’d like, or simply say, “Surprise me!”
4) Do all of this before Thursday, Oct. 7, when I’ll choose the winners.
Good luck, everybody!
In other news, FATEFUL — aka “Werewolves on the Titanic” — is now complete! Next up for me to write: BALTHAZAR.
