Book Deal Giveaway! Day One

Yes, someone's going to publish my book. I can barely contain the tremors, trust me. Since you guys have been around for a lot of my journey, I'm giving away some epic stuff. At least I think it's epic (and we really need to come up with another word for epic).

My book is a young adult dystopian novel in the vein of The Giver and The Hunger Games. Therefore, my giveaways are young adult/middle grade dystopians.

Each day this week there will be two prize packages available. The rules to enter are super-simple.
1. Go to The League of Extraordinary Writers blog. (I'm a co-author.) Follow. Oh, and there's a little giveaway going on over there too...
2. Leave a comment ON THIS POST. Contest is open internationally!

Winners will be chosen from the comments of this post. I will check to make sure the winner has followed the League blog.

What can you win? What can you win? WHAT CAN YOU WIN??

CANDOR prize package:
1. Candor by Pam Bachorz (hardcover)
2. Matching bookmark created by Elana
3. A box of peanut butter patties -- Girl Scout Cookies!
4. $5 gift card to Barnes & Noble
5. Sweet shoulder bag - fits a trade paperback!
6. Copy of From the Query to the Call OR a query critique by Elana




AMONG THE HIDDEN prize package:
1. Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix (paperback)
2. Matching bookmark created by Elana
3. A box of thin mints -- Girl Scout Cookies!
4. $5 gift card to Barnes & Noble
5. Handmade, personalized notebook for all your writing needs (6 x 9 inches)
6. Copy of From the Query to the Call OR a 10-page critique by Elana




Again, all you have to do to win is 1) Follow The League of Extraordinary Writers and 2) Leave a comment on THIS POST. (Tell me which prize package you'd like most. If possible, I'll give it to you.)

This giveaway will remain open for 24 hours! That's it. You snooze, you lose. Because tomorrow, I have TWO more prize packages to give away! Winners will be announced at 7:00 AM tomorrow. And the new giveaway will go live at 8:00 AM.

Thanks for celebrating with me!

Book deal and you give us a present. *SQEEZEEES*. The least we could do it offer a Starbucks or something. ";-)

Following ur League, and proud of it.

Girl Scout cookies....Whoa!! Thin Mints rock!!

Mia said...

Oh wow! :) This is so cool, Elana you're so awesome

I would love the Candor package if possible but they are both really cool! :D

Theresa Milstein said...

Again, congratulations! I'll take either package. I'm already a follower on the other blog. I have it on the blogroll listed on my sidebar.

Kara said...

Congratulations! What a great give away:) Either package would be great!

salarsenッ said...

Absentminded me: either package. You choose.

laurapauling said...

What a great way to celebrate! I'd love to read Candor! :)

Connie said...

I'm following the league and am looking forward to reading your book!

Congratulations!

Andrea said...

Great contest, Elana (or should I say Extraordianary)! I am already following The League. The Candor prize pack sounds cool.

Slamdunk said...

Ha, sounds like a no procrastination series of contests.

Congrats again.

Michelle McLean said...

Fun way to celebrate! :) I'm already following the League - congrats again!!! Oh, and I'd like the Among the Hidden prize :) (since both of those books are on my to-read list, my decision was solely based on the Girl Scout cookies LOL)

Kerrie said...

Great contest. I am now following the League and the Candor package looks amazing.

Nisa said...

Yea Elana! I loved what I read from Control Issues on Amazon and I cannot wait to get my hands on the whole book! Woo hoo! And what a fun way to celebrate! Among the Hidden if possible, but they both look great!

Another word for epic? But... But...

Tamara Hart Heiner said...

you go, girl! nice contest! of course I thought you were giving away a 'book deal'...ha ha!

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

See? This is why you're so awesome, Elana! You land a book deal and you're still thinking of how you can make our days better. You rock!!!

I'm excited Among the Hidden is one of your prizes. I'm on book six of the seven book series, and they are ALL awesome! My 10-yr-old daughter is on my heels, reading one book behind me. We're loving talking about the story and characters!

Okay, off to visit the other blog and say hey there!

Jonathon Arntson said...

You're almost more epic than the Iliad.





(Peanut Butter Patties?!?! They are called TAGALONGS! What is this world coming to?)

Natalie Aguirre said...

Thanks for the contest. And congrats again. I'd love a 10 page critique.

Vicki Rocho said...

What fantastic prize packages!

(I like Colossal instead of Epic)

Tara (The Bodacious Pen) said...

I've been a follower of the League since I first heard about it! Congrats on your book, and I would like the Candor package.

Palindrome said...

woo hoo!! Giveaways are awesome!!

Brenda said...

Congrats again, Elanna. And I would enter for the Girl Scout cookies alone since you can't get them here in the UK. It's a tough call between peanut butter and thin mints...

Candyland said...

I'd be happy with either prize:)
xoxo

Mary Campbell said...

So awesome Elena - so glad I can congratulate you publicly. Great prizes. I'm a follower of the other blog now and I really want prize package #1 - love peanut butter and I want to read Candor.
You're awesome.

Mary Campbell said...

Sorry I spelled your name wrong. I know how to spell, but I just forget because I have a friend who spells it that way.

susan-thorson said...

I am now following the "League" and would love to enter your give-away. I would like to read Candor (but would be happy with either)! Thanks so much!

Kelly said...

Among the Hidden, please :)
I'm a follower at the Extraordinary blog. Hmmmm, I wonder who the 5th member is...:)
Congrats again, Elana! Thanks for another generous contest!

Jackee said...

How very cool you are! Both prize packages look awesome and I hope that advance will cover the awesomeness all week. (Ha, ha!)

Portia said...

When I saw the Publishers Marketplace blurb about your book, I did a happy dance for you. You should definitely print and frame it for your office :-)

Kirthi said...

Amazing! I'm so extremley jealous that you got your book deal, I'm happy for you though! This is a wonderful contest, and I think it's really cool that your opening this for 24 hours only, haha.

I follow The League of Extraordinary Writers!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

OMG! I'm in contest junkie heaven. :)

I'm still glowing at your great news. I guess it'll be awhile before your feet touch ground again (take as long as you like). :D

MeganRebekah said...

I thought I was the only one making my decision based on the girl scout cookie flavors, but obviously not!

I'm going with the peanut butter... aka CANDOR package!

Brodie said...

I didn't get around to saying it earlier, but CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is so EPICLY awesome!! I can't wait to read your book :D And wow, great contest to celebrate!

I'm following The League's blog! If I win I would love the Candor package ;)

Thanks!

Mary McDonald said...

I'd just hit the follow button for the League as it came up on my dashboard just before this one. I didn't even know about the requirement. lol. So, I am a follower. Hmmm...peanut butter or thin mints. Tough choice, but I'm more a peanut butter kind of gal.

Janet Johnson said...

Ooooh! 10-pg. critique vs. Peanut-butter patties.

You make it so hard to choose!!!

But *deep breath* package 2 is my choice should I (hope! hope! hope!) win. :)

Congrats again! SO wonderful. :)

beth said...

I want the peanut butter cookie...er...the Candor prize pack! ;)

Hmmm...am I following the League....never heard of it.... ;)

hehehe

Cindy said...

Yay, Elana! I'm so excited for you. Saw this news on another blog and just had to stop by to say congratulations. Can't wait to hear more about it in the future :)

L.J. Boldyrev said...

Ahhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats!!!!! *jumps up and down*

MonsterAteMy said...

Sounds great! (and I already follow the other blog) I'd pick package #2...I think!

Empty Refrigerator said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What wonderful news! Here's my comment. Either package is great with me, though I have a slight preference toward CANDOR.

Matthew Rush said...

This is so awesome! I even blogged about you today before I knew the news, funny.

I am so happy for you! This is great news!

If I happen to win I would love Among the Hidden but either package would be fine with me.

Kristi Helvig said...

I'd love the Among the Hidden package. Thin mints AND a 10-page critique? No contest. Congrats again - I was so happy I blogged about you!

Kristi Helvig said...

I'd love the Among the Hidden package. Thin mints AND a 10-page critique? No contest. Congrats again - I was so happy I blogged about you!

Kerri C at CK Farm said...

It's EPIC and FANTASTICAL!!!

Congrats with your book!!!

Amie McCracken said...

I'm following. Congratulations! And...

I want the bag, but I want the thin mints, but I want both books, and definitely the orange bookmark...oh let's go with the Candor package.

Charity Bradford said...

Elana I'm so happy for you! Congratulations, and I'm a follower of both blogs. ;)

Erinn said...

Congrats on your book deal and thanks for the contest.

I follow in League Blog, any blog named after an Alan Moore comic book is pretty frakking awesome in my mind.

Candor package sounds great, mostly because I'm sort of craving peanut butter right now.

Have a great day.

Amy Jo Lavin said...

Mmm, Girl Scout cookies. My mouth is already watering! :) I'd be interested in the Candor package.

Anna said...

Congrats again on the book deal! I would love to get my hands on a copy of Candor (and some candy...)

Kay said...

Elena,
Congratulations! I found your blog from the League of Extraordinary Writers, so I guess I'm already a follower with Google Reader.
Which prize pack? That's a tough one. Candor is a new book to me and I love peanut butter patties, but since I want to be in your shoes one day, the critique would be awesome. I can't go wrong with another copy of Haddix (mine wear out quickly in my classroom) and who can go wrong with Thin Mints. Either is wonderful!

Mireyah Wolfe said...

Beyond awesome, Elana! <3

I have followed ze League blog, and I comment with this:

OMG THE THIN MINT ONE PLEASE. <333333 *ahem* If I should win, of course. >.>

Unless you feel like giving it to me regardless, because, y'know, that's cool too. ^_^

*wink*

Jai Joshi said...

Massive congratulations on being published!

Please enter me. I would like the Candor prize package. =)If this shows up twice, I didn't mean for it to. It said there was an error the first time.

Wonderful Women Writers said...

Wow, Elana, thanks for so much awesomeness! I'd love the Candor package, please.

Wishing you all the best on the edits coming your way.

Alison Eckel said...

I don't know how you do it all. You are amazing! If I should be so lucky as to win, I'd like either package - but probably choose the second if I had to.

Natalie said...

I'm so excited for you! You've already got all the marketing stuff down. You'll be in great shape by the time Control Issues comes out.

I'd love to win the Candor package, mostly because I love peanut butter girl scout cookies!

Shallee said...

Wow Elana, great giveaway! I'd love the Candor package, though they're both great! (Already have and love Among the Hidden).

Can't wait til I can read yours! :)

Abby Stevens said...

This is so amazing. :) Thanks for doing this and again, congrats!

Either prize pack would be wonderful, but I think I'd prefer the Among the Hidden, simply because I've never read either book but I KNOW I love thin mints. :) And the personalized notebook is beautiful.

Lisa K. said...

What a great contest, Elana...and congratulations again on the book deal. I remember Control Issues from ABNA that year, so I'm especially excited.

Not that I expect to win or anything. Just sayin.

Fun, fun contests!

Steena Holmes said...

Elana - I was telling my hubby about you. He's not a fiction reader and suffers through my 'will you read this for me?' requests - but he was pretty impressed by you ;0) He's the type - see it to believe it - and he said that he's believing :) Way to go girly. Very happy for you!

CL said...

Congratulations again, Elana! And pls put me down for the Hidden package. Thanks!

Krispy said...

CONGRATS AGAIN! :) Am following, and either package is great. It's impossible to choose really with those Girl Scout cookies, though I guess I'm more partial to Thin Mints...

Susan R. Mills said...

Hey there! Just came back from a bloggy break and found out your book sold! Congratulations. So, so, so awesome!!!!!! Anyhow, pick me. Pick me. Pick me. I want the Candor prize package.

Serenissima said...

Shoot, I started following the League of Extraordinary Writers blog as soon as I found out it existed. I loooove reading dystopian even though I don't write it (yet). Congrats again on your book. It sounds as delicious as Girl Scout cookies.

Although both packages sound awesome, I'll choose the Hidden one.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

I have a little giveaway on your behalf at my blog today, too. This is MAJOR party time, girl, and parties need presents! I am BEYOND ecstatic for you - way beyond! Congratulations, Elana! :-)

Congrats on the book deal. :)

Congratulations!

I would love the AMONG THE HIDDEN prize pack.

BTW: In the beginning of the post, where you said your book is something like The Giver and The Hunger Games, that's exactly what The forest of hands and teeth reminded me of.

I'm following the League blog!

Ooo, I've been following the League and I'm all about prize pack #1. More of a peanut butter girl that a thin mint girl. :) How fun!

Cheree said...

Ooh, let the fun begin. I'm definitely a follower of the league and certainly can't wait to read your book. How exciting.

Woo hoo! Been following The League.

I am so incredibly happy for you! I can't wait t read your book when it comes out!

JoLynne Lyon said...

OK, I admit it. I'll tell everyone I want the book for my kids, but I'll read it before I tell them I got it for them.

Okay, how did I miss the post where you announced your book deal? I mean, OMG...that's huge! It's EPIC! ;-)

Good for you! Heck, that's GREAT!

And now, I'm shooting over to the League. Don't want to miss out on the epic give-a-way.

Again, congrats!

Thanks so much for the fun contest! I subscribed to the League last week (GREAT idea for a blog, BTW) and I'd love to put my name in for the CANDOR package. MUST read it!

Mandy said...

oooh oooh I followed the League from the very first day!

I'd love the Among the Hidden prize.

Woo woo

Lynn said...

That is absolutely fantastic! I'm following The League of Extraordinary Writers. I'm open to any prize package, but more importantly is your deal! Thanks for sharing the event!

Mary_not_Martha said...

I'm so excited for you! I'd love to win the Haddix package! Following the "League" as well...

Sandy Shin said...

Once again, congratulations! I'm so excited for you!

I'm following TLOEW and, as I already have a copy of CANDOR, I'd love to be entered for the 2nd package. :)

Gail said...

I'm already following League! Would love to win Among The Hidden package! Got my fingers crossed :-)

Donna Hole said...

I know I remember you getting your book deal. I just didn't remember in the crazy life that I've embraced over the last couple weeks.

Awfully rude of me, so I can't remember if I congratulated you or not. Well, not matter: CONGRATULATIONS! WOOOHOOO!!

Thanks for the contest. I'll mention it on my post today. I don't read MG myself, but would mind a free book for my son. He needs something besides video games to occupy his mind over the summer.

See ya later.

OMG OMG OMG!

That is so awesome, Elana. Congrats big time. I am a follower here and there, so please include me in the fun :) I am so happy for you though. My wife says congrats too (since she's heard me talk about you all the time). Another book I'll have to pick up as soon as it comes out.

Corinne O'Flynn said...

Hi Elana! Congratulations on your fabulous news! Really just elated for you!!

I am already a follower of the League, and very disappointed that I did not win the debut contest. *sniff*

I would LOVE to win the Among the Hidden package. (although either would be fab!)

J. L. Jackson said...

Congrats! I am a follower and would like either package!

Michelle said...

Cool! I love contests and prizes. Count me in for the Among the Hidden package. I'm already a follower of the League. Thanks! Oh yeah...Congrats too!

mariblaser said...

Woot! Many congrats for the book deal Elana!

And wow, are you generous or what? You two packages are already great giveaways, but you have even more? Neat! heh

So, I'm following the League and *finger crossed* I'd like the Candor package.

Cheers! :D

Amber Tidd Murphy said...

YAY! I love epic giveaways. :) I would chose CANDOR... you know, if I won.

Karen Lange said...

So excited for you:) Great giveaway too. Guess if I had to choose, I would lean toward the Among the Hidden package.
Have a great week!

G said...

Not entering the contest (I follow/subscribe to about 100 blogs, so I got my hands full) but I wanted to give you congrats on getting published.

However, here is an idea: how about giving a matching prize to a deserving young (sub 18) writer at a school?

Kailia Sage said...

I'm a follower of this blog!

I'd love to win the Among The Hidden

Rebecca said...

I love helping people celebrate!

If I win, I think I would like the Among the Hidden package (the thin mints were the clincher).

Rachelle said...

So cool! Thanks for letting us party with you. I would love to win either package! I think they both sound amazing.

Heather said...

Congratulations!!! That's amazing news!

I'm already following the league, because I <3 dystopian stuff. If I win, I have a slight preference toward the Candor package, though I love Thin Mints so really I'd be happy with either one. Woot!

Llehn said...

Congrats on your wonderful news!!

I follow the League of Extraordinary Writers :D

YAHOOOOOOO! I have been hearing your happy news all over. I am so excited for you! And YA dystopia is my favorite genre to read so I can't wait to see yours in print!

I am a follower of the League and would really love your second prize pack... although they both sound amazing!

Elana, congrats again (and again) (and again)!!!

I loves me a contest where all you have to do is follow -- no +2 for this, +3 for that...

Is some Johnson good luck included in the prize package?

Lisa said...

Congratulations on your upcoming release! How exciting!
(Both prize packages look great to me!)

Shari Green said...

Yay for dystopian YA! And yay for giveaways! I'd especially like the Candor pkg.... :)
