YA AND MIDDLE GRADE BOOK GIVEAWAY

Hi Everyone! Can you believe it's the end of April? It's gone so fast. It's finally warmed up this weekend so I can get out in my garden and take more walks with Ellie Mae. Can't believe how long it took to get here. Now if I could only get Ellie Mae to stay out of my flower beds. Any suggestions?

Before I get to my giveaway, I have a bunch of winners to announce.

The winner of TAKEN is Amber Hsu!

The winner of MILA 2.0 is Eisen!

The winner of BLACK CITY is BJ Almeda!

The winner of THE COLOSSUS RISES is Jessa from THE NOTEBOOK SISTERS!

The winner of the backpack is Danielle H!

The winner of FALLEN STAR is Eli Yanti!

The winner of a half-off coupon to Jill Corcoran's Path to Publishing Interactive Workshops is Rachna Chhabria!

Congrats to all the winners. E-mail me your address so I can send you your books. Please e-mail me by the end of Wednesday or I'll have to pick another winner.

So I've gotten a bunch of books that I wish I could read and review, but with the schedule of books and authors I'm promoting, I just don't have time. They look good, so I'll share them with you by doing a random giveaway. There's a combination of YA and middle grade books.

Click on the title below the book covers for a description from Goodreads.


 


 
 












Sorry for the covers not aligning right but Blogger doesn't want to cooperate. All are ARCs unless noted below.

BAD UNICORN
RIGHT OF WAY 
THE HUNT
SEEDS OF REBELLION (Signed ARC)
SPELLCASTER (Book)
THE BOOK OF BROKEN HEARTS 
THE AWESOME ALMOST 100% TRUE ADVENTURES OF MATT & CRAZ

To enter, all you need to do is be a follower (just click the follow button if you’re not a follower) and leave a comment telling me your first two choices by midnight on May 11th. I’ll announce the winner on May 13th.

If you mention this contest on Twitter, Facebook, or your blog, mention this in the comments and I'll give you an extra entry. You must be 13 or older to enter. International entries are welcome, but due to postage costs, I'll only pick one international winner at most. Please let me know in the comments if you live outside the U.S.

Here's what's coming up:

On Wednesday, I’m interviewing Jessica Bell about her craft books SHOW & TELL IN A NUTSHELL: DEMONSTRATED TRANSITIONS FROM TELLING TO SHOWING and ADVERBS & CLICHÉS IN A NUTSHELL: DEMONSTRATED SUBVERSIONS OF ADVERBS & CLICHÉS INTO GOURMET IMAGERY. And one lucky winner will win one of these books.

Next Monday I’m interviewing Liesl Shurtliff and giving away a copy of RUMP: THE TRUE STORY OF RUMPLESTILTSKIN. This is a fantastic retelling of this fairytale with a really fresh spin on it.

Wednesday next week I’m excited to interview one of our followers Lisa Gail Green about her debut novel, DJINN: THE BINDING STONE, a YA paranormal story I can’t wait to read. There will be a giveaway too.

And don't forget our Tuesday Tips and Casey's Thursday agent spotlights.

Hope to see you on Monday!

Thank again for another giveaway. :)

It was a difficult choice this time, so I guess I'll choose outside my genre. Let's go with RIGHT OF WAY and THE BOOK OF BROKEN HEARTS.

S.P. Bowers said...

BEYONDERS and BOOK OF BROKEN HEARTS.

Thanks!

Beth said...

Am I allowed to pick Beyonders twice?!

I would love to have Bad Unicorn or THE AWESOME ALMOST 100% TRUE ADVENTURES OF MATT & CRAZ.

As far as Ellie Mae goes, I have the same problem with my toddler, but I haven't figured out how to fix it!

Rachna Chhabria said...

Ohh..thrilled with my half- off coupon. Congrats to the other winners.

THE AWESOME ALMOST 100% TRUE ADVENTURES OF MATT & CRAZ sounds like something I have to read.

Barbara Watson said...

Congrats, winners!

My daughter would love the signed ARC of Seeds of Rebellion. We have signed hardcovers of books 1 and 3, so a signed ARC of book 2 would be cool!

Anonymous said...

My picks are Seeds of Rebellion first. Bad Unicorn second. Thanks! Oh and I am in Canada.

YAY on the upcoming interview for RUMP! Looking forward to it I must say.

You might try pouring red pepper in the flower beds to keep your cutie patootie out of them. I've had it work for some dogs, but not others. Stubbornness and determination definitely play a part.

The cover for Bad Unicorn is hilarious, so that would be one of my picks. And The Hunt makes me sad because The Hunt has been the working title of my never-ending WIP for years. I've been toying with another title, so I guess I'll officially make the switch. But I'll make that my second pick out of title solidarity.
