I'll admit, coming out with a new book after a series is...a little scary. Will people like it? Will your awesome readers accept you writing something very different? Will the nail polish you bought to match the cover go with your signing outfits?
Serious questions here, folks.
But along with the worries comes the EXCITEMENT. I am so very, very excited to bring you on a new, darker adventure. To introduce you to Fia and Annie, two exceptional sisters. To introduce you to James. Ahem.
I wanted to let you know just how much I appreciate your continued readership and support. I wanted to do a contest. A BIG contest. But more than that, I wanted to make sure that everyone who supported MIND GAMES by preordering the book got a personal token of my appreciation.
So, first and foremost, if you preorder MIND GAMES and fill out the form below, you will receive a signed bookmark normally available only at my signings. And by you, I mean everyone who preorders and enters.
(Never fear: I am totally drafting Hot Stuff to help me address envelopes.)
And while everyone gets a signed bookmark, US residents are also entered to win other prizes!
THREE people will win an unsigned hardcover Paranormalcy trilogy, courtesy of my fabulous publisher, HarperTeen!
TWO people will win a signed, personalized hardcover Paranormalcy trilogy.
And ONE person will win a signed, personalized hardcover Paranormalcy trilogy, a signed, personalized copy of MIND GAMES, an iPod shuffle (in Fia's Eyes Blue), an iTunes giftcard, and a handwritten, never-released, available nowhere else playlist that I used extensively while writing MIND GAMES and its sequel!
The rules are simple. Preorder MIND GAMES from your favorite retailer (Barnes and Noble! Amazon! Indies! Book Depository! Ebook version and the audiobook totally count, too!) by FEBRUARY 17th. No entries after February 17th will be counted. After you have preordered, come back here and fill out the form letting me know you did so. Taa-daa! Instant bookmark! And you're entered for a chance to win one of the other prizes, too!
I do not require proof of purchase in the form of an emailed receipt for every entry. I trust you all to be awesome, and everyone knows honesty is the awesomest policy. However, if you do win one of the big prizes, I will ask you to email a copy of the receipt that matches the date you entered, just to verify since those prizes have a cash value.
NOTE: The prizes for this contest are not open internationally, because of issues with taxes/tariffs on mailing gifts. But if you are international and preorder either MIND GAMES or SISTER ASSASSIN (the UK/AUS/NZ edition), you are absolutely entitled to a signed bookmark and I am more than happy to send one your way!
So, go forth! Preorder! Enter the contest! And through it all, please know how very deeply I appreciate your willingness to lend me your imagination for a few hundred pages. It is one of the greatest privileges of my life.
*CONTEST CLOSED* Thank you for all the entries!
