It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Unless you’re in school, in which case it’s the lamest time of the year. Unless you LIKE school, in which case things sure have changed since I was that age. ANYWAYS. It’s the most wonderful time of year because today the UPS man came and handed me…
Four! ARCs! Of! Some! Girls! Are!
I am so giddy about this it means I HAVE TO DO A GIVEAWAY. Of course. So you must read on to find out how YOU can be entered in a random draw to win a copy of THIS ARC:
Yeah. I still can’t show my cover yet, so I took this opportunity to promote my anti-werewolf agenda on my blog. Do you know who suggested I obscure my cover with my anti-werewolf agenda? Suzie! I was just gonna blur it until she tweeted that brilliance at me. Suzie rocks. Suzie got an early read on Some Girls Are and look at the amazingly humbling things she blogged about it. Thank you, Suzie!
This is the same book that Kim of What Claudia Wore said, “makes Cracked Up to Be look like My Little Pony,” by the way. Yes, I know I remind people of this regularly but her saying that might’ve made my year, okay.
So. Are you interested in this brutal book, which doesn’t come out officially until January 5th, 2010? Here is what Some Girls Are is about:
“Climbing to the top of the social ladder is hard–falling from it is even harder. Regina Afton used to be a member of the Fearsome Fivesome. And just like the other members of this all girl clique, she was both feared and revered by the students of Hallowell High… that is until vicious rumors about her and her best friend’s boyfriend start going around. Now she’s been “frozen out” and her ex-friends are out for revenge. If Regina was guilty, it would be one thing, but the rumors are far from the terrifying truth, and the bullying is getting more intense by the day.
Out of desperation, she takes solace in the companionship of Michael Hayden, a misfit with a tragic past who she herself used to bully. Friendship–and eventually romance–doesn’t come easily for these onetime enemies, and as Regina makes amends for her past, a bond begins to form, while threats from the Fearsome Foursome are poised to break them both.”
Here is a look at some of the first page, which I have never posted anywhere before let alone in such a big font:
“Everyone is wasted.
Anna is wasted. Josh is wasted. Jeanette is wasted. Bruce is wasted. Donnie’s always wasted. I’m not wasted. I had my turn at the last party, called shotgun in Anna’s Benz after it was over. My head was out the window, the world was spinning. I puked my guts out. It wasn’t fun, but it’s not like there was anything else to do. Tonight there’s even less to do than that. Tonight, I’m the designated driver.
I promise you that is the least of Regina’s worries. Stuff’s about to go DOWN, you guys. And if you want a chance to find out what stuff is about to go down before January 5th, 2010, here’s what you need to do.
COMMENT ON THIS ENTRY TELLING ME YOU WANT TO BE ENTERED.
That’s all! How easy is that? International entries welcome. Do not comment on the Facebook or LiveJournal feeds–those comments will not be counted. Just comment on this entry on my website, telling me you want to be entered in a random draw to win an ARC of Some Girls Are. Do it by September 14th. On the 15th, I will announce the winner.
Aw heck, I will even throw in a signed copy of Cracked Up to Be as well. Two books! My entire catalogue! And all you have to do is enter once!
Also! Guys. Twitter, for some reason, hates me today (I don’t know why because I love YOU, Twitter!). It is being reluctant to show my tweets to everyone. So if you could take it upon yourself to tweet about this giveaway with a link back to this post, I’d REALLY appreciate it. I wanna hit the ground running.
And finally, if you are a book blogger interested in a review copy of Some Girls Are, go here for deets. I’ll be sending the list off next week and after that, all review copy requests will have to be sent directly to my publicist.
NOW IF YOU WILL EXCUSE ME, I have some ARCs to make out with. Probably the one you could maybe win. That only increases its value right? That I made out with it?
Who am I kidding.
OF COURSE IT DOES.
