<3 I am dying to read this book by bethrevis. It sounds and looks stunning. And I adore Beth. So this book will be perfect; I just know it :D Oh, and I might, maybe, have been the first person to order the special edition from malapropsbookstore <3 I ordered two signed/personalized copies just for me, hih :D

Want to win an exclusive signed print (one of only TWO in the world) by Hugo-award winning artist John Picacio? "El Venado" was inspired by Shadow and Bone, the first book in the Grisha Trilogy. (If you look closely, you’ll see the firebird, the sea whip, and the Darkling’s symbol.) The final version will be part of John’s Loteria series, and this beautiful sketch shows the first stage of the work’s development. This archival print is one of only two in the world (I own the other!), and you can win it. Here’s how:
Attending Loncon? Get any book in the Grisha Trilogy signed by me at my autograph session (Saturday, 8/16 @11am) or Kaffeeklatsch (Sunday @10am, sign up required) and be entered to win. Attending DragonCon? Get any book in the Grisha Trilogy signed by me at my autograph session (time &amp; location tba) and be entered to win.


Not going to be at the cons? 
You can still win a prize package that includes John’s signed 2014 Loteria Calendar (the year is almost over but the art is poster sized and gorgeous), a limited edition Loteria sketchbook, a signed first edition of Shadow and Bone, and a poster of the book’s map by artist Keith Thompson.
Just post the image above to twitter or instagram or reblog this post on tumblr using hashtags #GrishaArmy AND either #Loncon3 or #DragonCon2014 and you’ll be entered to win! Contest closes September 1st. Winners will be chosen at random and announced in September. Open internationally.
*On a personal note: I’m a huge fan of John’s work. I was lucky enough to meet him at Worldcon in 2011, and seeing him create art inspired by one of my books is pretty much a dream come true.

This is gorgeous. &lt;3 Crossing my fingers that I might win :) Thank you lbardugo &lt;3

I’ve been hinting at this rather a lot, but The Body Electric does not take place in America…in fact, it takes place in a part of the world that is rarely written about.

Your task: take a guess as to where the book is located. There are LOTS of clues out there—in fact one person has already messaged me with a guess that is correct, and that’s before I’ve posted all the clues. 

Once you know what country the story takes place in—or have a pretty good guess—ENTER HERE for a chance to win a signed, limited edition of the novel. Only 350 copies of this limited edition will be made, and one person who enters here will get one—early. 

Reblogging and otherwise sharing the contest and/or subscribing to my newsletter gets you extra entries! I may have to make up an additional prize for whoever best mocks that mock turtleneck. I mean honestly.

bethrevis is amazing. <3 Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway :D *Crossing all my fingers* <3 Want to win so bad. Dying to read The Body Electric :)
