Okay, so SURRENDER comes out next Tuesday. Squee! Please consider pre-ordering or going to your local bookstore during launch week. I know I have first-world, published-author problems, and I'm not complaining.
I just want to say that the sales of the first week--of launch week, which is next week, June 5 - 11--are so important to an author. Some more than others, and this time around it's really important to me.
So if you were planning to buy SURRENDER, please consider doing it next week. Or pre-ordering now.
I have 4 weeks of giveaways and blog tour posts planned for the month of June. During launch week, you can win one of five signed "Spectacular Seconds". Books that are the second published novel of an author, not necessarily the second in a series.
Sophomore novels you can win: Crossed by Ally Condie, Mirage by Kristi Cook, A Million Suns by Beth Revis, Insurgent by Veronica Roth, and Perception by Kim Harrington.
Some of my favorite authors and favorites of the past year. Also during launch day--June 5--I'll have some amazing extras and giveaways happening on Facebook. Here. This event. Join if you're so inclined.
During the second week of June--that's the 11-15--I'll be hosting the Never Surrender blogfest. This is something anyone, anywhere can participate in.
All you have to do is blog about a time you didn't surrender. Trained for a marathon? Queried agents? Had to study for an entrance exam? I'm looking for inspirational stories that you have experienced. Hard things you've accomplished because you didn't give up. I want to be inspired by you!
Anyone who blogs this week for the theme can enter to win one of three $15 B&N gift cards. Everyone who blogs this week will receive a SURRENDER swag package. (You can get the blogfest language and badge here.)
Don’t blog? Put the cover of Surrender up on your FB wall, or pin it on Pinterest, or change your twitter avatar to the cover. Use the words “Never Surrender” somewhere to go with the picture, and link back to this post.
Sign up in this form to make sure you get the swag package. I will visit each blog to read your inspirational "never surrender" moments. Sign your blog up to participate in the Never Surrender blogfest linklist below.
