spread the word about The Unwritten Rule and win books and MORE!

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

So it's about to snow here (again), and I'm super nervous about things, and I thought--you know what will cheer me up?

A contest!


I'll be giving away fifteen (yes, 15!) ARCs* to one lucky US resident.** Oh, AND your name will be mentioned in the acknowledgments of my 2011 book with Simon Pulse AND--if you want--you'll get a phone call from yours truly!

AND!! As of now, you'll also get TWENTY hardcover young adult novels as well--which means you could win THIRTY-FIVE books.



Now I'll also be giving out not one, not two, but THREE ARCs of The Unwritten Rule, and everyone is eligible to win those, no matter where you live!

How do you enter?


Tell people about The Unwritten Rule

How can you do that? Lots of ways!


--post the book cover and summary on your blog and let the world know you can't wait to read it! (you can get a copy of the book cover in small, medium, or large, and the summary is here)

-- post the book cover and summary on fb/myspace and let the world know you can't wait to read it!

--tweet about The Unwritten Rule (and yes, you can do this more than once, but don't tweet about it, like, a hundred times a day. Or even more than once every few days. In other words, tweeting isn't going to impress me nearly as much as doing other stuff, so don't go overboard with it)

--if you're read an ARC of the book, post a review on your blog and goodreads, librarything, etc.

--put the book cover up and/or say you're waiting for it, etc. in your facebook/myspace status

-- tell your friends to read my books or better yet, go and get them to pre-order The Unwritten Rule at your local bookstore (a pic of this would be SO amazing!!)

-- make a countdown widget for The Unwritten Rule and put it up on your blog! (or if you don't know how to/don't want to make one, you can use the one that's here)

--whatever other ways you can think of to get the word out and get people excited for The Unwritten Rule-- (create a petition to have me visit your school/library/fave bookstore to talk about the book/or do a signing/get your local library/school library to order a copy)

--use your imagination and go for it!(eta: and yes, links to pictures of what you've done are totally welcome!!)

--remember that I'm going to be the most blown away by something that's super amazing--that makes me go WOW! So think quality, not quantity :-)

Then, just tell me what you did in a comment and provide a link/links to what you've done. Also! Please post your email address so I can contact you if you win. Finally, please note this this the *only* place you can enter--no email entries, nothing through Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc.

Since this is a pretty big contest, I'm going to leave it open from today, February 9th through midnight EST on Tuesday, March 2th. (if you get a note saying your comment will need to be moderated don't worry--I *will* approve it!!)

Also, don't forget to be creative--I'd love to see someone organize a group bookstore visit to pre-order copies of the book. I love that you are mentioning the book on your blogs and all those other things, but there's plenty of real world stuff you can do too, so don't forget about that!

And that's it! I can't wait to see what you all do--I know you'll amaze me--and THANK YOU for helping to spread the word about The Unwritten Rule

*The ARCs:
**(Shipping twenty-five books overseas would bankrupt me! As would the phone call--sorry!) But that is why I'm now giving away three ARCs of The Unwritten Rule as well!

I got to read an ARC and posted a review on my blog: http://helenkiaya.blogspot.com/2010/02/unwritten-rule-by-elizabeth-scott.html

I really loved the book, so I'm crossing my fingers I can get my own copy. :)

Here's a tweet about it:

I also have the FAQ from your website up on the bulletin board at work, along with postcards advertising your books (including The Unwritten Rule postcard I got in the mail today) up on a pillar next to the bulletin board, would a picture of that count as an entry?

I don't know if this counts but the Columbus Metropolitan Library didn't have your book on order yet (they have other YA books on order that come out about the same time) so I recommended The Unwritten Rule be considered for purchase request. Here's the email i received when I submitted the request:

Thank you Mollie for recommending The Unwritten Rule to the library's collection!

We will review your suggestion(s) in order to make a final purchase decision. It can take up to four months for the library to acquire and process a new item. Please check our catalog in two to three weeks to see if the item was ordered and if so, place your reserve.

I would have recommended they purchase this despite your contest.

Can not wait for The Unwritten Rule! Thanks so much for this chance to enter this amazing contest! I have told all my friends to go pre-order the book, and have even asked my school library if they can get The Unwritten Rule in our library so more amazing fans can read it! I don't have a facebook or tweet so I am trying to spread the word person to person sorry! Trying to spread the word, thanks again for this amazing chance to win!

You can reach me at martinla156@gmail.com

P.S. Even if I don't win I am so glad people everywhere are getting excited and spreading the word about The Unwritten Rule!!

I am no longer a virgin. I've (we've) been screwing myself over trying to think of an inventive idea for this insane contest. (ha! Lovely joke, eh?)

Anyways, my best friend Caitlin came charging towards me during lunch and screamed, "OHMYGOSH we HAVE to enter this spectacular contest!!" She was loud enough to turn several heads. :O)
So during math period (he hates us I swear!) we brainstormed several ideas to help spread the word.

On Friday, we had the school's office announce on the loudspeaker your name, date of release, and of course the title of your book! A whole ship-load of students heard the message (a whole freaking High School!) and we really hope at least a handful of people will pick a copy up. If they're smart, they will. :O)

Secondly (and lastly) Caitlin and I wrote "The Unwritten Rule" along with your name and release date on our car windows. (in chalk of course. Otherwise I'd be dead.) and we've gotten numerous questions and several raised eyebrows. This way we could REALLY spread the word! :O)

Whatever the outcome, we just want to say thanks for this amazing contest, and we had a surprisingly great time doing it. Thank you! XOXO

Love, Hannah and Caitlin G.

P.s. We're both new readers (introduced by another book buddy) and we can't wait to read your other books!

This is such an amazing contest and you're awesome for giving away so many wonderful prizes.

I really wanted to get the word about The Unwritten Rule out--but like you wanted, out in the real world and not just on the internet.

And in able to do that, my friends and I needed to get excited for it, first.

So I threw a "The Unwritten Rule" party. I made a cake and frosted it all by myself with a picture of the Unwritten Rule on it and made Shirts (with a picture of the unwritten rule on it). There were balloons and a big poster. It was such a blast and you can defiantly see pictures on the link I will post below.

And then to get the word out about your upcoming release, I wore my shirt out in public, to the mall where many teenagers hang out. I even went in Borders and took a picture where all your books are.

Then my friend and I wore our shirts to school where two thousand teenage students are! I got so many questions about it all day and what my shirt was about and I gladly told them about it and your soon to be out book.

All these pictures can be found at this link:

This contest was so much fun and now I really can't wait for the release of The Unwritten Rule.

So in honor of The Unwritten Rule at our library we are having an Elizabeth Scott book discussion/ release day party! Everyone reads one of your books and then we discuss them and then we all get to take and read Unwritten Rule. It should be a blast. I can send you pictures afterwards if you'd like.
I also posted the cover on my goodreads page http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/1178011

This is the most amazing contest ever! I have never seen a better one :)
For your contest, I did a lot of things. First, I did just the plain old post a status, tweet about it, and you can find those links here:



Then, I took it a step up and wrote a review about The Unwritten Rule, and interviewed you on my blog. Those links can be found here:


After that, I took it another step up and made a Trailer for the book. That can be found here:

Now, it's time for the big stuff. I made flyers about your book and put them different places over my college campus. I took 3 different pictures of them in various places:
bathroom door- http://tinypic.com/r/2j5nmvn/6

elevator door- http://tinypic.com/r/aahb7m/6

building wall- http://tinypic.com/r/2pqnbb6/6
and they were also posted in various other places.

Then, I made a sign and stood out by the side of the road, showing it off to traffic:
It was quite cold so I had to put on gloves soon on after that! I stood there for an hour.

After that, I decided I would go to walmart. At walmart, I took little pieces of paper that looked like this:
and put them in various places. You can find those links here (there are 13 of them!):













Then, I made myself a shirt to wear to class and all around campus. A picture of me in the hallway can be found here:

Then, to top it all off, I wrote a song about the book and posted it on youtube. A link to that can be found here:
The lyrics can be found in the description of the video.

So there you have it, those are all of the things I did to promote The Unwritten Rule. Of course, I tell everyone about it too, but you cant take pictures of that :)
I really hope you enjoy what I did because I had so much fun doing it!
Thanks for the contest!

Sorry, this is my third post, I posted the first one twice on accident. Anyways, today I went around my school, and wrote on everybody's hand: THE UNWRITTEN RULE.
It was funny cuz everybody thought I was going to write ZAP! (if you know what that is), and I had to keep repeating "no". That and I sent many chain emails and regular emails to my friends and cousins and everybody I know. I used my dad's facebook to post a few links. Also I got my friends to write on other people's hands (the ones I really didn't want to talk to) and to send some more emails to THEIR other friends and cousins and stuff. I'll try to give you a link, but I don't know how to do that for emails. :(
The hand thing worked though!
So many people know about it now.

So I was able to make a few flyers and post them around my school, the school library, and the local library. My school librarian also said that she would get a few copies of The Unwritten Rule for the library. Also, I was able to fid a way to include the book on the morning announcements.

Hi again!
Sorry, w've already posted here and we're sure you already have a TON of comments to go through already so we will keep this very short! Or at least as short as possible!
We just e-mailed everyone in our e-mail contacts information about The Unwritten Rule. Including the boys. :O)
I'm actually pretty sure at least a few of them have already read (and liked) a few of your books. Only the real macho boys of course.
We also printed fliers to put up at our school. They're actually really pretty!
We aren't really that savvy with technology (Ha, the understatement of the century!) but we can send you a photo via e-mail as soon as we figure out how. Taped them in the bathroom, cafeteria, LIBRARY, etc... EVERYWHERE!
At first it started off as just an AMAZING contest, but now its started to become a contest between us as well. Friendly competition... :O)
Whoever can think of crazier places to place fliers win. (Ex: Information written on school's toilet paper)
Very, very fun. Again, thanks for the contest!

Love, Hannah and Caitlin G.

P.s. Holy cow! Your books on PulseIt! *Starts hyperventilating*
(Well Caitlin does at least... Hannah is just grinning like a mad fool)
