It's getting to be holiday time, and I've been thinking about wishes. I've been really lucky this year--every wish I've had for Bloom has come true, and so I thought I'd thank you all for everything and since--as you can probably guess--one of my favorite things to wish for is books, I've decided to have a book wish contest!

So tell me what young adult novel out there you wish you had a copy of, or that you've been wanting to buy but haven't, and you could get that book for free! Just comment here (or email me at elizabeth at elizabethwrites dot com) with the title and author of the young adult novel you wish for (it just has to be in print, and under $20 US) by midnight EST on Friday, December 7th, and then I'll draw four names at random, and each of those four people will get the book they wished for! Though you can only reply once, you can reply no matter where you live (I will ship books overseas), or if you've won something from me in the past.

I also have some links to share:

Writer Unboxed interviews agent Donald Maas, who offers up some interesting insights into getting published--and staying published--as well as his thoughts on what genres publishers are/will be moving away from aquiring

The Rejecter talks about working with junior agents

I remember a book I read in junior high called Alan and Naomi by Myron Levoy. I recall it as being excellent (not to mention absolutely heartbreaking), and I'd love to read it again to see if it's as good as I remember.

What a cool idea! I've been itching to read Ellen Emerson White's Long May She Reign.

Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale - I love her books. If you've never read anything by her, you definitely should! :)

Wow, what an awesome contest. And I'm just in time for the deadline, which is today.

Well, I've really been aiming to read Sara Zarr's STORY OF A GIRL, which I heard was fantastic.

Once again, awesome contest. Hope I win! *fingers crossed*
