Bookanistas: Cover contest for THE 13TH SIGN

Below is the hot-off-the-presses cover for THE 13TH SIGN by Kristin O’Donnell Tubb (January 8, 2013 from Feiwel & Friends):

And the jacket copy:

What if there was a 13th zodiac sign? 


You’re no longer Sagittarius, but Ophiuchus, the healer, the 13th sign. 


Your personality has changed.
So has your mom’s and your best friend’s. 


What about the rest of the world? 


What if you were the one who accidentally unlocked the 13th sign, causing this world-altering change—and infuriating the other 12 signs?  


Jalen did it, and now she must use every ounce of her strength and cunning to send the signs back where they belong.
Lives, including her own, depend on it.

To celebrate, Kristin is hosting a COVER REVEAL CONTEST! Here’s how it works:

  • 1.     Search the cover above for THREE zodiac symbols. Got them? Good! Then…
  • 2.     Email your answers directly to Kristin at ktubb@comcast.net by June 30 to…
  • 3.     Be entered into a drawing! The following will be doled out randomly to three folks who send in correct answers:
  • -a $50 IndieBound gift card!
  • -a signed hardcover of SELLING HOPE plus a signed paperback of AUTUMN WINIFRED OLIVER DOES THINGS DIFFERENT!
  • -a book “basket” including three middle grade books: BRIDGE TO TIME by Lewis Buzbee, THE STRANGE CASE OF ORIGAMI YODA by Tom Angleberger, and THE GIRL WHO CIRCUMNAVIGATED FAIRYLAND IN A SHIP OF HER OWN MAKING by Catherynne M. Valente
4.   BONUS! Anyone who includes a FOUTH zodiac symbol in their answers will    get double entries for the above drawing!

And that’s it!  Start searching and emailing! (Please remember to email answers rather than post them in the comments! Thanks!)

P.S. If you’d like to preorder THE 13TH SIGN, you can do so here  (Amazon) or here (Indiebound)! You’ll be automatically be eligible for the upcoming THE 13TH SIGN Preorder Contest!

I'm bowled over. If could run out of words I'd have run out them by now. So, so touching. It's hard to leave, but I feel compelled to go. I think you call that "torn." Shelli, so many beautiful words. Thank you so much for inspiring me to push for more and for putting yourself out there for me to see. It's made me want to get out and ask, see, do. I vow to keep in touch.
