Very, very proud to announce that I’m a member of the YA Series Insiders – a brand-new group comprising authors who all have a new series launching in 2014. But while we’ll naturally be sharing news about our own upcoming titles (just try shutting me up about A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU), that’s not all we’re about. We’re going to bring you information about all your favorite series, interviews with your favorite YA authors, and plenty of giveaways. Want to see what we’ve already cooked up for you?
Who are we?
Kimberley Griffiths Little
and of course yours truly.
You said awesome giveaways. What kind of giveaways? How much awesome?
THIS much awesome, my friends. To get things started with our new Tumblr (http://yaseriesinsiders.com/), we are holding a mega giveaway with (drum roll please) more than $1000 worth of signed box sets or hardcover sets of favorite YA series, plus handpicked items from every author that tie in with her book. There are smaller giveaways too, including DVDs, exclusive swag, and jewelry, which you can find (along with YA Series Insiders content) on the following four blogs:
Adventures in YA Publishing — gifts plus signed hardcover copies of Marie Lu’s LEGEND trilogy
Page Turners’ Blog — gifts plus signed hardcovers of SHATTER ME and IGNITE ME by Tahereh Mafi, and a signed hardcover of ICONS by Margaret Stohl
Mundie Moms — gifts plus signed hardcovers copies of Rae Carson’s GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS trilogy
YA Books Central — gifts plus an entire signed hardcover copy of the DIVERGENT trilogy by Veronica Roth.
You know you want these things.
Like the man on TV who sells ShamWows, I now say, “But wait, there’s more!” There are giveaways of yet more prizes and swag at the following blogs:
How would you like a signed copy of Veronica Roth’s ALLEGIANT from The Story Siren? Or a signed copy of THE DIVINERS by Libba Bray from Jean The Book Nerd? If you want Alexandra Bracken’s NEVER FADE, you want to drop by Candace’s Book Blog. Seeking Victoria Schwab’s THE ARCHIVED? You’ll want to head to Literary Rambles. From I’m A Reader, Not A Writer…, you can win an autographed copy of FROZEN by Melissa de la Cruz and Michael Johnson. And the Girls in the Stacks have a signed hardcover of UNBREAKABLE by Kami Garcia.
The giveaways are all happening now, and you can enter anytime through the end of the year. All eleven winners will be announced on January 1. What’s that, you say? Only 11 winners? That’s right. When you win here, you win BIG.
Hope you’ll follow us on Tumblr, through the giveaways, on Twitter, and more. For instance, want to know which YA series I wish (like burning fire) I’d written? Head to our Tumblr and find out!
