It’s five weeks until STEADFAST comes out! I’m so psyched about the prize package we’re putting together for that … but first, have to give away ALL THE ARCs, right?
Let me begin by congratulating last week’s winners: Sophie Jordan’s UNINVITED goes to Lucas, Leila Sales’ THIS SONG WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE goes to Kelly, and BEFORE MY EYES goes to Caroline! Well-played, you three.
What are this week’s prizes? First of all, a book that is not an ARC, but will get you all caught up on a great series before the next one this summer: INSOMNIA by J.R. Johannson. Parker has suffered four years of insomnia; at night, instead of sleeping, he goes into the dreams of the last person he looked at. The lack of sleep may literally kill him soon. But hope comes in the form of Mia, whose calm, beautiful dreams provide the first peace and rest he’s known in a long time. Yet that very beauty can provide addictive …
Next up we have one of the most hotly anticipated ARCs for this spring: PANIC by Lauren Oliver! Heather never thought she’d compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors in her small hometown. She’s never seen herself as fearless – until she finally has something, and someone, to fight for. Dodge, meanwhile, has always thought he was prepared for Panic, because he has a secret that’s going to help him through the game, but it turns out he’s not the only one with secrets.
And finally we have a book that relates to some of the themes coming up in my fall release, A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU – but the time to explain exactly how they’re related will be this fall, when we’re closer to launch. For now, let me just get you excited for SEKRET by Lindsay Smith. Yulia has always hidden her thoughts and controlled her emotions; that’s the only way to survive in Communist Russia — especially for a psychic. But when her powers are discovered, and the KGB drafts her as an unwilling spy, she’s thrown into a world of intrigue and danger where she can trust no one.
How do you win these books? Follow these steps!
1) Leave a comment on this post saying which of the books you’d like to win, and why you’re interested in reading it.
2) Follow each of the authors (@JennJohansson, @OliverBooks and @LindsaySmithDc) on Twitter – and maybe let them know you’re excited about maybe winning their book. (Authors always LOVE to hear this.) Don’t have a Twitter? Well, find a way to somehow show that you’re excited for these books, whether that’s something on GoodReads, on your own blog if you have one, a pin on Pinterest, something on Tumblr – and link me to it! If you have no other social media, well, then let me know what kinds of prizes you guys like in contests besides books. I’m always curious about this. Actually, the rest of you can chime in on that as well, if you’d like.
3) Do this before Monday, Feb. 10, when I’ll pick winners at random. (Yes, this one is open internationally.)
And spread the word, you guys – I want as many people as possible to get a crack at winning.
Remember, next week we’ll start the big STEADFAST contest and start the one month countdown to the next book in the SPELLCASTER series. I’m so, so psyched to tell you guys what we’ve planned!
