Well, I am back from my trip! (And totally forgot to take any pictures.) (Which, in light of past history, is not really a surprise.)
And more importantly, ARCs of PAPER VALENTINE are here, which means that now I can give them to you!
As usual, I will try to keep the rules simple. As usual, I may get distracted by random ideas about novelty and originality and nuance and oh-look-a-bird, and fail completely at keeping the rules simple.
Okay, let’s start here:
I Love This Cover. Which means that in my own personal estimation, it needs to be shared with the world!
Well, or at least the internet.
So, what I want from you:
Post it someplace where the world (internet) can see it! This means –
- Your blog
- Your Facebook
- Your Twitter
- Your Tumblr
- Another nominally-public internet space that I might be blanking on right now
Step One: Share the cover and be sure to include a link back to this blog post
Step Two: Comment here with a link to where you shared the cover
(Totaling two links—if you have not posted two links and one Paper Valentine cover on the internet, then you have not finished entering the contest!)
This contest is for three ARCs—two US,
VERY IMPORTANT EDIT: Yikes! International Entrants, I am SO SORRY—I completely spaced the fact that I’m Definitively Not Allowed to send ARCs out of the country. There are a couple ways we can deal with this. First, keep entering, because I still would really like to give you things. If my International Winner can provide a US shipping address, we’re good to go. If not, I will mail you a finished copy as soon as I have them, or if you don’t want to wait that long, I’ll send you a copy of one of my other books—your choice. Again, big (massive) apologies! Carry on.
This means that all you international entrants have one extra task, which is just to tell me in your comment that you live in a different country than I do!
Now, I’m going to be in Lawrence next week, talking about The Curiosities with Tess and Maggie, and won’t be around to pick a winner. Which means, I’m giving you extra time to enter.
This is officially a two-week contest, and you have until Sunday, September 2nd, at midnight Eastern time.
Ooooh, I want one of those ARC’s. So pretty and sounds so good. Can’t wait to read it! I posted on facebook http://www.facebook.com/desiree.thompson.1485/posts/521640934518362

Oh Hello Brenna, I’m such a huge fan of your books, The Space in Between- my favorites, and The Replacement is so so amazing, and you have such a way with words. I love the eerie beauty each of your characters have- oh i’m rambling.
All in all, I’m super excited to read this book- the cover look great! X}

I blogged about it, and then posted links to my blog on both Facebook (where I learned, to my gleeful chagrin, that we are already FB friends) and Twitter.
Here is the link to the post:
If I win I promise to hug it and squeeze it and name it George. (Probably not George, since that is not, in fact, its name.) But it will go to a good home. Thanks for the contest!
And because the group is closed on Facebook so you probably won’t be able to see, I posted it on my regular page as well. :) Can’t wait to read it!
