CURRENT CONTESTS! UPDATED MAY 2014
At Brenda Novak’s Diabetes Research Auction, you can win a phone call with me as well as signed, inscribed to you, copies of Starters and Enders and swag! Click here to see. This is international. We can discuss the books, or publishing, how to get an agent, etc. This ends at the end of the month, so the current bid is super low, but don’t wait to get your first bid in because Brenda picks some of the bidders for prizes. This is an amazing auction and you can also bid on agent or editor crits. Also, it is a tax-deductible charity!
Another contest is for signed bookmarks and a signed chapter sampler of STARTERS. This is unusual because it’s international. I get requests for bookmarks from international fans all the time but cannot send them because of the paperwork. When I did my European tour last year, I didn’t have the current bookmarks, so the winner is going to be maybe the only person (outside of Canada) with them. Click here for the rafflecopter entry.
Win ENDERS – IN PORTUGUESE, Brazilian rafflecopter here.
Win ENDERS – click here. This is also international!
Only two days left on this one, win STARTERS and ENDERS, Canada and US only! Click here.
All the contests below have past. I stopped updating contests the second half of 2013, so they’re not listed.
The big contest is the iPad Air see the link to the right.

Thank you, everyone, and I will run some other contest before pub date (March 13 in the US, Germany and I think France. April in UK and other countries)! If you are a blogger, you can read STARTERS via netgalley.com.
IF YOU ALREADY KNOW THIS, SKIP THIS PARAGRAPH: Starting Monday, January 16th at 12:00pm noon EST (9 am PST), the Apocalypsies will be hosting the first ever YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes – a week-long blog race featuring over 50 debut authors.

IF YOU CAME FROM STOP #1:
Take a look at this link: http://www.startersbooks.com and navigate to BOOKS. You can see the trailer there or here, then come back here. I’ll wait.
Okay, you’ve seen the site and the 30 sec trailer? Great!
But – before you go – if you want to enter my extra side contest, then please list STARTERS as “to-read” on Goodreads by clicking on the icon with the “g” in tan box in the right sidebar –>
One lucky winner from the GR list during this period will win a very hard to get, just-released, signed ARC of STARTERS! Since the hardback will launch in two months, they didn’t print a ton and this may be my only giveaway. If you also sign up to follow me via my email feed (envelope icon top right under “Follow Me”), you’ll double your chances of winning. Follow me on Twitter by clicking on that icon too and you’ll triple your chances!
