Giveaway - Update!
Oops sorry - I almost forgot today's giveaway(s)!!!! WTF!
I went to Kay Cassidy's Book signing this past weekend and hung out with her, Jackson Pearce, and Vania (Reverie). Had so much fun. Kay gave me a few items to give away with a signed book.
So today, I have 2 packages to giveaway!
Package A - It is Kay Cassidy's The Cinderella Society. Its signed and comes with a cue glass slipper, a adorable glass slipper book marker, and an Inspire notepad. (trust me - you want this - its adorable!)
Package B (b/c I have so much to give away!) is a lot of Middle Grade books from Little Brown (President of the Fifth Grade Oct 2010, Tumtum and Nutmeg Oct 2010, and Clara Lee and the Apple Pie Dream, Jan 2011)
If you are a Follower, comment and tell me what is one thing you are planning to do this summer! Also - if you have a preference, tell me what Package you would like.

Here are the awesome winners: (please email me for instructions at firstname.lastname@example.org)
1st place: Dorothy Dreyer (submit full manuscript)
As seventeen-year-old, Faith Daniels gradually pieces together the forgotten events that landed her on the neurosurgeon’s table, she becomes haunted by her past — literally. And there’s nothing worse than being stalked by a bunch of your dead classmates, except perhaps becoming one. When Faith eventually recalls the details of the catastrophe that lead to these unexpected and ghostly class reunions — and the horrific realization of her brother’s involvement in the death of her friends — she must make a heart-wrenching decision: hide the truth (and continue to be pestered by ghosts) or betray her family.
2nd place: Larissa (submit partial - 3 chapters)
When people in his small town begin obsessing over a book and literally reading themselves to death, thirteen-year-old Mitch must find a way to break the obsession before he loses everyone he loves.
Tied for 3rd place: (query critiques)
When wings of a murdered faerie fetch big bucks on eBay, a teenage girl discovers her kind aren't only being oppressed--they're being hunted.
Claire Daniels and Toby Reed were never supposed to meet, but they have, and now one is fated to kill the other. Their fabricated destiny takes it's toll on the people they love, so it's up to them to stop the hands of death before everyone gets squeezed.
Congrads! I'm so excited for you guys and be sure to let me know what happens! :)
