As some of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook might know, I recently received an unexpected mailbag of spare copies of my books. It was sent by my YA editor at Knopf, because she was cleaning out her office. So, just extra. No charge. And the first words to come into my head were, "I feel a giveaway coming on."
Part of me wanted to wait until I finished the Pay It Forward advance reader's copy giveaway at the end of April. But when that giveaway is over, I'm just going to start a new one. I have at least six of those ARCs that I've decided to give away. So that's going to be going on all year. That one I'm calling a slow giveaway. I'm going to collect comments for about six weeks for each copy.
So, I thought, is there such a thing as too many giveaways? Too many free books? I'm thinking not.
This one I think will be fast. One week. This is April 2nd. I'll draw a name on April 9th. The winner will receive a signed paperback copy of both The Year of my Miraculous Reappearance and The Day I Killed James.
Here's what you have to do: Leave a comment saying why you like to read YA. Doesn't have to be long or fancy.
As always, make sure you either leave an email address (it won't show publicly) or check back to see if you've won. And that's it. Easy, right? I aim to make it easy.
