Born Wicked Book Contest

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.

I'd love to go to a book signing one day. I've heard great things about Born Wicked. I'm not always drawn to Born Wicked, but I was to this book since I first came across it. Thank you for the chance to win a signed copy.

Looking forward to finding out more about the Dragon King Chronicles.

Awesome that you thought of us. I try to do the same for my blog too. That's so awesome that you got to meet them all. I'd love to meet Beth and Marie. I interviewed them both at Literary Rambles and they seem so nice.

Thanks for the giveaway.

I have wanted to get my hands on a copy of Born Wicked since I saw the trailer (loved it so much I shared it on my blog even though I didn't have a copy)! This seems to me, one of those YA books that could easily cross over into women's fiction...love to win a copy to find out! Thanks for the giveaway, how sweet of you for giving away a signed copy! I love my signed books!

Carina said...

I'm always a little bit jealous of people being able to go to such awesome book signings since I'm living in Germany and not many (US) authors come here. So thank you very much for the chance to win this. I've heard really good things about Born Wicked and have been wanting to order a copy for a while now. :D

Best wishes,
Carina
