Congrats to Clare Kidwell, Duca Jolic and Arial Te Momo! You all get ARCs! Just send me your addresses and I’ll get them right out to you. For everyone else (like all two hundred of you — damn, there were a lot of entries this time! I think you broke my email) author’s copies should be available before the pub date, and I’ll be running another contest as soon as I have them. Thanks, everyone! And have a great night!
Okay, so I got a surprise box of ARCs from my editor today. I’ve been after them so much over the Read for Pixels thing, and the ARCs I’d promised people for the event, that I think they slipped up and sent me two boxes (or maybe it’s a bribe to shut me up!) Anyway, I’m doing another giveaway (to enter, send your name and “ARC” to KarenChance@hotmail.com). Only there’s a catch this time: if you enter this drawing, you have to be willing to do a non-spoilery review of the book. It doesn’t matter where (Amazon, B&N, etc.) but you have to promise to do one! It should, of course, be an honest review of what you think of the book. Anyway, I have three available! I will do the drawing tonight at midnight EST, so get those names in, and good luck!
Just received an email from the winner of the Pritkin certificate goody bag. She has chosen a Pritkin POV instead of a deleted scene, specifically the café conversation between Pritkin and Cassie near the end of Tempt the Stars. She will get a chance to read it first, and then it will be posted to the freebies section of the web page. I will post an announcement when it’s available, but I thought you’d like to know what she selected. 🙂
For all of those who won an arc, good news! I just received word that they should be available by tomorrow. There was a hold up because of the cover design change, but Penguin has them now and is going to be mailing them out to me Wednesday (or as soon as the blizzard allows.) And, as soon as I receive them, I will mail them to you.
For those who won goodie bundles, please drop me a line (KarenChance@hotmail.com) and let me know the name you’d like me to use on the inscriptions. Thank you!
I just received the info on the Read for Pixels event, so I’m passing it along.
The Swag Bags: The swag bags will be up on the Read for Pixels fundraising page on March 11, a few hours ahead of the Google Hangout. Basically, the Read for Pixels people put a price on each bag, and the first person to ante up gets it. The page still has the old info on it, but if you click through you can see how it works. If you haven’t seen my swag bags, just scroll down or head on over to my blog where they’re already posted.
2. The Event itself: March 11 at 8:30 Eastern Standard Time, on YouTube. Log on to your Google or YouTube account to ask questions, answer trivia, or just say hi!
3. The Trivia Contest: There will be fourteen trivia questions during the event, for prizes I’ve been posting to Facebook and my blog. I’ll ask a question, and whoever gives the first right answer in the chat window gets that prize.
Looking forward to chatting with you there!
