My Biggest Giveaway Ever: Win 29 signed books, 15 ARCs, or other awesome prizes!

Before I do anything else, I want to point out the post I did yesterday: for every sale of The Body Electric from now until the end of the year, I'm donating $1 to the creation of beehives in developing nations, a program through World Vision that both helps the ecosystem by helping bees and helps the community by helping families set up an entrepreneurship selling honey. If you plan on buying The Body Electric, now's a great time--or you can donate direction to World Vision.

Welcome to my biggest giveaway EVER!!!

First up: the prizes! There's going to be three main giveaways. Due to extensive shipping costs (literally hundreds of dollars) the first two prizes can only be shipped to American addresses. Because of this, the third prize is open only to international readers--anyone with an address outside of America. Additionally, I have certain goals for this project--to donate more beehives, to get more exposure for my newest book, to share the contest--and the more goals that are met, the more prizes I'm adding for everyone!

PRIZE PACK TWO: 15 Advanced Reader Copies
One lucky winner will receive all the books listed below!
This prize is limited to librarians, teachers, and book reviewers with American addresses only. 
Every year, I'm lucky enough to snag some amazing ARCs--but I always have a dilemma of what to do after I read them. These ARCs have been gently read by me only, and most of them are books I now own hard copies of. So I want these ARCs to continue doing the job they were meant to do: get into the hands of librarians, teachers, and book reviewers.


  • A signed, limited edition of The Body Electric. There are only six copies left of this version of the book available--and you'll get one of them! Since I used the limited editions of the book as my ARCs, this is what you'll get, too. 
  • Signed ARC copies of Across the Universe, A Million Suns, and Shades of Earth. Each one of these books is an ARC--and they are super rare! 

  • Icons, signed by author Margaret Stohl! (Please note: this is a rare ARC with the original ARC cover)
  • Crewel by Gennifer Albin
  • The Archived by Victoria Schwab
  • The Inventor's Secret by Andrea Cremer
  • Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris
  • 172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad
  • Vortex by Julie Cross
  • Scan by Walter Jury and SE Fine
  • Stiching Snow by R.C. Lewis
  • Impostor by Susanne Winnacker
  • Archetype by M.D. Waters

All 15 of these signed books will go to one lucky winner at a school, library, or book blog! PLUS you'll be getting a TON of exclusive swag! Including:

--Limited edition water Across the Universe water bottle
--An Across the Universe poster
--A poster of These Broken Stars, signed by both Meagan Spooner and Amie Kaufman
--A poster for the Girls Gone Sci Fi Tour, signed by five authors
--A packet of tons of swag by tons of YA authors, some signed

Additionally, I have a few "stretch goal" prizes that will be added to this prize pack if certain goals are met throughout the month. 

Stretch Goal One:
Unremembered, signed by Jessica Brody (paperback)

Stretch Goal Two:
Reboot, signed by Amy Tintera (hardback)

Stretch Goal Three:
These Broken Stars, signed by both Meagan Spooner and Amie Kaufman (hardback)

PRIZE PACK THREE: International Readers ONLY
One lucky winner will receive both the books listed below!
This prize is limited to readers with addresses anywhere except America. 
I hate that I cannot offer all the prizes internationally--the shipping cost was literally hundreds of dollars and way out of my budget. However, I wanted to do something special for the international readers who have supported me so much...and I was lucky enough to find a way to get you 10 signatures in one book! One international reader will win the following prizes:

A signed, limited edition copy of The Body Electric
This is one of six remaining copies left--and you'll get one (plus all the swag!)

My True Love Gave to Me Anthology, signed by TEN authors:
Holly Black, Ally Carter, Gayle Forman, Jenny Han, David Levithan, Kelly Link, Myra McEntire, Stephanie Perkins, Rainbow Rowell, and Kiersten White!
(This prize is dependent upon an upcoming event; some changes may be made)

Stretch Goal:
If the stretch goal is met, I'll be adding a limited edition AtU water bottle and more swag!

________________________________________________

If all stretch goals are met, I have a few more extra prizes in reserve 
that will be open to ALL entrants! 

If the stretch goal is met, I'll be adding a limited edition AtU water bottle and more swag!

HOW TO ENTER:
This contest is designed to help gain exposure for The Body Electric, which will hopefully give me the chance to donate more money to the World Vision charity.

There are special additional ways for librarians, teachers, and book bloggers to enter.
To enter, you MUST complete the form embedded below or available at this link.

People can't enter the contest if they don't know about it! There are several ways you can enter by spreading the word--here are a few easy ways:

--Retweet this tweet

Post about The Body Electric:
If you write a paragraph or more about The Body Electric online, it counts! If you haven't read the book, posting a "Waiting on Wednesday" style post, a cover-love post, or similar qualifies. If you have read the book, a review (of any star-rating, positive or negative) qualifies. And please consider cross-posting reviews--it really helps an author our to have this sort of exposure.

Get Creative:
I've done a similar contest to this before--and it was so much fun, I had to do it again! You can do anything at all to showcase your creativity linked with The Body Electric--it can be fan art, fan fic, a poetry, a sculpture, a fake tattoo, a dramatic reading, a quilt, anything! Just be creative and showcase your work based on The Body Electric!
