Win a copy of the New York Times Bestseller WAKE!

Tuesday, April 08, 2008

As some of you might know, Lisa McMann’s awesome novel, Wake, is a New York Times Bestseller--yay!! (And it’s just gone into it’s third printing as well--double yay!!)

I bought a couple of copies of WAKE to give away at a later date, but I figure now is the perfect time to celebrate the success of a fantastic book!

So, for this week only, if you enter the PERFECT YOU contest, you could win a copy of Wake! I have five copies to give away, and will keep track of everyone who enters the PERFECT YOU contest between now and midnight EST on Sunday, April 13th. On April 14th, I’ll pick five of those people at random and each of those five people will get a copy of Wake!

I'll give a quick rundown/reminder on how to enter the contest after I share a few links...

The Rejecter on editors, agents, and the complicated relationships between them.

Agent Kristin Nelson on an "Unexpected Twist To Economic Downturn"

Author Jordan Summers has a great conference report featuring highlights from talks by several editors and other speakers

Bookslut offers advice on what to do when you just don't feel like reading anything

Elizabeth Bear has written a fascinating post on hitting the wall (a wall?) when writing a book

Check out this interesting post from an agent about YA novel hooks that are showing up a lot in query letters. A LOT.

And here's the promised reminder on how you can enter the PERFECT YOU contest:

1. Buy a copy of PERFECT YOU and save the receipt.

2. Take a photo of the receipt with your cell phone, digital camera, etc., and then send the picture to me at elizabethscottcontest@gmail.com

Please make sure to include your name, as well as the email address it's best to contact you at.

3. Once I get the picture of your receipt, you'll be entered into the PERFECT YOU contest drawing.

Here are the prizes:

One person will receive an iPod nano OR a $200 gift certificate to the bookstore of their choice

Twenty people (yep, TWENTY) will each receive a $20 gift certificate to the bookstore of their choice

So, there's actually a total of twenty-one prizes (!) to be given away, and again, all you have to do to enter is buy Perfect You, and send a picture of your receipt to elizabethscottcontest@gmail.com

The contest will run through May 2nd, and I'll announce the winners here on May 5th. (But remember--if you want to win a copy of Wake, make sure your entry is in by April 13th!)

Aw, I was putting off sending a picture of my receipt but I figured I'd end up misplacing it so I sent it in last night.
Ooooh and I finished Perfect You this morning. LOVED IT! I always get so upset when it's almost over because I want to keep reading forever. I dragged out the last few chapters for two days.
Also, I am super excited for Something, Maybe.

Brianna--thanks for the kind words about Perfect You!

Complusive Reader--I'm glad you liked the links, and ITA about Lisa. It's fantastic news, and couldn't have happened to a nicer person!
