HAPPY SOLSTICE RELEASE! HUGE 20 BOOK GIVEAWAY!




First, I want to offer up a huge thank you for all the support from you guys! I'm so thrilled to be a part of the kids' book world. And I'm even more excited that in addition to my middle grade trilogy, I now have a young adult dystopian/mythology novel to share!


So to kick off the release of SOLSTICE, I'm offering up a huge 20 book giveaway and tons of ways to enter to win! The books are in four sets of five, and are grouped accordingly (kind of). Here we go:

Source of books: From publishers at trade shows and from local independent bookstore.
Any royalties from links will go toward shipping to contest winners.

International winners can pick their top choice from the prize back and a second winner will be selected for the remainder (because shipping five books overseas is a lot more than shipping one book) :)

The contest will run through midnight on Tuesday, May 31st, 2011!


Whew! Okay, so all the ways to enter... I'm using a form below which you need to fill out, but here are all the pertinent links and stuff for extra entries!

For your chance to win, you have to follow this blog. That gets you one entry.

Extra entries are here:
