CONGRATULATIONS! THE WINNER IS PETRA@SAFARIPOET!!!
As a local DC author, I get to have lunch with Jessica Spotswood whenever we can find time to do so. In fact, there are quite a few authors in the DC area and meeting up with them is always a pleasure. So it was awesome to be at last week's Breathless tour where Jessica was one of 4 amazing YA authors on tour! And there were a lot of local writers who made it out for the event.
After years of internet chatting, I got to meet Beth Revis and Marie Lu in person! And they are as lovely and as smart and as marvelous online as they are in person. I saw and listened in awe to Andrea Cremer but missed actually talking to her because everytime I thought to do so, another fan was there. And Jessica was great, as usual!
So whenever I'm at the events, I always purchase books in order to support the independent bookstore that is partnered with the event. In this case, it is the fabulous Politics & Prose who were at the wonderful Bethesda library. I really applaud both of them for the great job they do hosting these events. The turnout was great and the panel of authors were smart and funny and so very likeable. It was a great event!
The only thing is, I was less prepared getting to the event and I ran out without my own copies of the books I wanted signed. So while I bought a bunch of books, I only got one additional copy to give away. Sorry about that as I'm unwilling to give up my personally signed copies. So today's book contest is for one signed copy of Jessica's Born Wicked.
All you gotta do is leave me a comment or tweet me with the #BornWicked hashtag. And you'll have a chance to win. This contest is open internationally until Friday, February 24th, 2012.
