No matter how many times I start to write this post, I keep wanting the basic thesis to be that Emily Hainsworth is delightful.
However, as with so many of my basic theses, that doesn’t actually tell you the part you need to know. I mean, you should know that she’s delightful, but more relevant-to-you-this-minute (until you meet her somewhere, in which case you will discover her delightfulness for yourself) is this other thing:
Her debut novel THROUGH TO YOU just came out last week, and I wanted to tell you about it, because it’s also delightful, but in less of a let’s-drink-coffee-and-talk-about-how-much-we-love-Christopher-Pike* way and more of an Ooh, an otherworldly phenomenon—now let’s look at all the dysfunction! kind of way.
I really, really love this book because it’s about difficult relationships and messy choices and romantic tension and bodily harm and all the pointy, confusing things that can come along with grief and loss and supernatural goings-on and having to live in the world. Which also happen to be all the things I love most, and I so want to share it!
So, for you guys! I have two prize packs, each consisting of a signed hardback, plus swag (plus anything else I might throw in on top if I put these prize packs in their mailers and then decide they don’t look prize-packish enough).
All you have to do to win is take a minute to leave a comment, which I will give you until Midnight Eastern on October 14th to do. Also … the comment should be of some substance somehow. So, how should we do this? I promised this was going to be easy, so I am determinedly NOT going to overcomplicate things.
Okay, the title of Emily’s book comes from a song, and I like that about it, so what I want is for you to tell me your favorite song lyric. (Also, it doesn’t matter if it’s only your favorite today and you like something different tomorrow. I am not the Favorite Things Police.)
Also, while I’m not doing dedicated international and US winners this time, you can enter from ANYWHERE.
Ready, set, go!
(Also, leave some form of identifying information so that if you win, I can let you know.) (Email, twitter handle, anything.) (I’m not picky.)
*Which I get to do sometimes, because she’s from Denver too, and I’d sort of casually (understatement) been keeping my eye on THROUGH TO YOU ever since I heard it existed, because it sounded exactly like my sort of book, and then I found out she lived near me and was diligent and stalked her on twitter until she agreed to hang out and let me read her book.
