Happy KEEPER-Paperback-Day–AND AN EXILE ARC (plus swag) GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!!!

August 6th, 2013 | Blog Uncategorized


There's a reason I've had “Paperback writer” stuck in my head all week–and not just because it's so darn catchy. (For those who don't know what I'm talking about, educate yourselves HERE)

As of today–I NOW OFFICIALLY AM ONE!!!!!!

(Well, maybe not *technically*–since I believe the actual definition of a “paperback writer” applies to authors whose books come out only in paperback. BUT IT'S CLOSE ENOUGH, OKAY???) 🙂

Which is my nerdy, roundabout way of saying…

*herald trumpets blast*


I realize KEEPER has already been out in the world for about ten months now (wow, where does time go?) so this may feel like old news. But I gotta say, I'm almost more excited about this than I was on the hardcover release day.

Growing up, my family lived on a VERY tight budget. And since I cranked through books like nobody's business, paperbacks were pretty much my lifesaver (paperbacks and libraries. I would've been lost without both). So it makes me VERY happy to finally have a paperback version of KEEPER out there in the world, to make it a little easier on families like mine.

Even better: it only costs $6.99.

Even, EVEN better, they're just as shiny and gorgeous as the hardcovers–same gloss and everything:

Even, EVEN, EVEN better, it has this at the end:
Even, EVEN, EVEN, EVEN better, I'm having a contest to celebrate–and I'm giving away one of these:

plus TWENTY FIVE of these:

There. aren't. Enough. Exclamation marks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To enter, make sure you fill out the form below by 11:59pm PDT on 8/18/13.

(And I'll let you know once they've been sent so you know to keep an eye out). International entries welcome!

Usually I like to keep my giveaways nice and simple. But since I know there's quite a lot of you hoping to win this ARC, I thought it was only fair to give you guys a few chances to get extra entries, and then it's up to you if you want to bother taking advantage of it.

And…. go!

Contest form removed since the contest is now closed.
