Years ago, when I first started blogging about writing and my hopes of one day getting published, I ran my first book giveaway to celebrate my birthday. Now, July 5th is the day I set aside to thank you guys for reading my books, for listening to me ramble on Twitter and Tumblr, and for just generally being awesome, book-loving, YA-reading rockstars. You guys are the best birthday present a girl could ask for.

To celebrate I’m giving away ALL of my books, including an early ARC of This Shattered World, plus swag, across five different winners, open internationally*. I’ll be drawing one of the four basic prize winners each Saturday leading up to the final grand prize drawing from the entire pool of entrants on July 31. The first drawing is TONIGHT, so jump on it sooner rather than later!

FOUR BASIC PRIZES: Your choice of any one of the above books signed and personalized, plus signed swag. (ARC of This Shattered World, poster, and custom These Broken Stars necklace are only available for the grand prize.)

ONE GRAND PRIZE: EVERYTHING pictured above! All signed/personalized however you want them. 

HOW TO ENTER:

  • Newsletter (+5): Enter by subscribing to the newsletter I share with amiekaufman. Each entry here is worth five points in the drawings. (If you already subscribe, you’ve already automatically got these points in the drawing!)
  • Twitter (+1): Retweet this tweet. (Can do this once a day for more points!)
  • Tumblr (+1): Reblog this post. (Can do this once a day for more points!) 

See below for contest fine print and basic contest policy/rules.

<3 Fingers crossed :)

A fun review of Kendare Blake’s Mortal Gods from blogger Carina: I found Mortal Gods to be a stunning book. Full of action, suspense, romance and heartbreak. It was an amazing sequel to a perfect first book. I cannot wait to finish this series.

This is. Ack. This is amazing. &lt;3 Thank you torteen :D I really truly loved Mortal Gods. &lt;3

ALL THE RAGE

summerscourtney:

I’ve been given permission to share the official plot summary for my next YA novel, ALL THE RAGE, which comes out April 14th, 2015 from St. Martin’s Press. I have talked a lot about writing the book (in fact, you can read more about that process here), without actually saying what exactly…

This is killing me a little. SO EXCITED FOR ALL THE RAGE! It will be a stunning book. <3 And heartbreaking. Because this summary? Sobs. It is perfect. And I adore Courtney. I just cannot wait for this book :)
