win a copy of cracked up to be!

courtneycracked up to be, omg, some girls are (your mom)

The ADVANCE UNCORRECTED PROOFS for Cracked Up to Be came in the mail today! They were sent off on Thursday, and then I had to endure an entire weekend AND a civic holiday waiting for them to come while my editor and my agent told me how great they looked and I was like, “IS IT TUESDAY YET?” And then it was Tuesday and they came and now I have them! It’s my book in book form!! It’s my book in advanced and uncorrected book form!!!!

Now. I know what you’re thinking.


And also, maybe hopefully, HOW CAN I GET ONE?

Well. Let’s address one issue at a time here. First, pics!

[pics removed due to circumstances beyond mah control!]

(Just so you know, Edward Cullins may be sparkly, but I feel like if my books got into a sparkle off with him, they would win.)

Don’t they look like books?! With covers! Aaah! All ten of them are sittiing right beside me while I type this now. I kind of carry them from room to room and hug them whilst I still can, since a lot of them are getting mailed out to the world within the next week or so. I want them to go remembering fondly the time they had with their author. Every moment we have is a Kodak one!


Do YOU want an Advance Uncorrected Proof of Cracked Up to Be? Are you reading this blog and DO YOU WANT ONE? Because if you are and you do…

I am holding a give away one (1) (Advance Uncorrected) copy of Cracked Up to Be on this blog!

And in the spirit of these lazy hazy days of summer and the fact that I’ve been absolutely brain dead since I handed in the first draft of Your Mom to my awesome agent yesterday, it is going to be the EASIEST GIVE AWAY EVER.

Here’s how it works:

If you would like to be entered in a drawing to win one (1) (Advance Uncorrected) copy of Cracked Up to Be, all you have to do is comment on this entry and make sure the word ‘YO’ is in your comment.

That’s all you have to do! Easy, right? I will then put all of the names of the people who commented on this entry and put the word YO in their comment onto pieces of paper. I will then put those papers in a hat or something. I will then DRAW A NAME FROM THE HAT and that will be the name of the person who wins the book.


You gots until August 14th to put your name in (once!). The winner will be announced August 15th and will get one (1) (Advance Uncorrected) copy of Cracked Up to Be mailed to them. They will have 24 hours to give me the info I need to do that, and if I don’t get it, then I’ll be drawing again.

So go to it! I mean, if you wanna. Don’t forget the yo!

In other news, like I said, I sent off Your Mom to my awesome agent yesterday and now I’m just chillin’ out max and relaxin’ all cool and all shooting some b-ball outside of the school when a couple of guys that were up to no good started making trouble in my neighbourhood I got in one little fight and my mom got scared she said YOU’RE MOVING WITH YOUR AUNTIE AND UNCLE IN BEL-AIR.


(That’s my way of saying regular blogging again! Yay!)

ETA: Apparently the anti-spam plug-in was/is not compatible with certain web browsers (ack! How long was that going on?!), and was preventing people from being able to comment, so I have deactivated it indefinitely. I think that’s fixed it, but if anyone wants to enter and, for whatever reason, is unable to comment, hit up the contact page, send me a YO and I’ll post your name on your behalf.
