17 Days to Something, Maybe! (and also, Happy Saturday!)

Saturday, March 07, 2009

I don't usually blog on the weekends, but hey, there are only 17 days left till Something, Maybe shows up in stores---plus I'm having a lot of fun with this Countdown Celebration!

In Something, Maybe, Hannah hasn't spoken to her father, Jackson, in years. And then, out of the blue, he calls her...

"Here," she says, turning to me and holding out the phone. "It's Jackson."


Mom nods.

I take the phone, suddenly feeling shaky. I haven't spoken to Jackson since I was twelve.

Why is he calling now?

Trust me, you do find out why he calls. And because Jackson has been out of Hannah's life for such a long time, today I'm going to give away Michael Grant's Gone, because the title seems very fitting!

Just leave a comment (that's it because hey, it's the weekend!) by midnight tonight, and then I'll pick one winner at random, etc. etc.

Yesterday's winner was Anatole, today's winner...well, you know. It could be YOU!

Also, if you're interested in coming to the book signing in New York City on April 5th at Books of Wonder from 1-3 PM (you'll get to see Cassandra Clare AND Lisa McMann--TWO New York Times Bestselling Authors!!), feel free to drop me a note with your addy using the contact page and I'll send you a postcard with all the signing info. Or you can just click here

This is definitely getting intriguing. Jackson calling? Perhaps Hannah is in for a surprise inheritence. Please put me in for the drawing to Gone. Thanks! Indigo
