bookstore update and BIG contest changes...

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

First, a huge thank you to everyone who let me know if they could find The Unwritten Rule at their local B&N or Wal-Mart Super Center yesterday on fb and twitter--you were all so helpful!

Second, a special shout-out to everyone at Simon Pulse who have been working so hard to figure out WHY The Unwritten Rule isn't in Barnes & Noble stores yet.

Here's the latest: Barnes & Noble has the book, but hasn't yet shipped them to stores. Hopefully, that will happen really soon and I've got my fingers crossed that this weekend/early next week, it'll be there! And as for Wal-Mart, the book is indeed in Super Centers, but because there are so many Super Centers (we're talking thousands!!!) it's not in every single one.

What does all this mean?

Well, you've all been so awesome and helpful and just plain fantastic about all of this that I've decided to change the Celebrate The Unwritten Rule contest a little. Check it out:

Email me a picture of either your online or bookstore receipt* for The Unwritten Rule by Tuesday, April 6th at midnight EST.

You'll also need to include your mailing info.

Why?

Because everyone who sends me a picture of their receipt (and remember, it has to be an actual receipt) will get a FREE hardcover young adult novel.

That's right. You buy my book, and I send you a FREE one!

But wait! There's more...

If the book goes below 1000 at amazon.com OR barnesandnoble.com, everyone will get TWO FREE YA books. I'll also randomly pick five people from the entries on April 7th, and those people, in addition to getting a free book (or books!), will also each get a $25 gift card to the bookstore of their choice! (And if I get enough entries, I'll make it ten winners!)

Receipt pictures should be sent to: elizabethscottcontest@gmail.com

And that's it!

So to recap: Buy a copy of The Unwritten Rule either online or at a bookstore by April 6th, send me a picture of your receipt and your mailing info to elizabethscottcontest@gmail.com, and you'll get a FREE hardcover young adult novel AND have a chance to win a $25 bookstore gift card as well!

fine print: please note that this contest is open to US residents/those with US mailing addys only. *receipt--if you order the book online, you must send me the receipt that comes when you get the book. Confirmation emails aren't receipts, and won't be counted as such.
