The Grand Valentine's Day ARC Giveaway!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

And especially happy day to Kiersten who won the giveaway of Shadowed Summer! Congrats Kiersten and please send me an email at aprilynne pike at gmail dot com with your address so I can send you your copy!

I have been looking forward to this for a long time. It's the WINGS ARC Giveaway!!!! Not only that. But because it's Valentine's Day and all of the Valentine's candy is going to be on sale on Monday (*snicker*), it is ARC plus gift bag giveaway time!!!!

Here's the deal:

1st Prize= An ARC of WINGS, a cover flat, a large Valentine's Day goody bag, and a small swag bag like the ones I gave out on my pre-pub tour.

2nd and 3rd Prizes= A cover flat, a large Valentine's Day goody bag, and a small swag bag.

4th and 5th Prizes= A large Valentine's Day goody bag plus a small swag bag.

The Rules:

I don't like complicated entry rules and I don't want to follow people all over the web to find out if they linked to my blog or whatever (although I've done that) so this one is easy. It's Valentine's Day and WINGS is, at it's heart, a love story, so you enter by commenting and giving someone you love a shout out.

I'll start.

I LOVE YOU KENNY!!!!

See? Easy!

You have one week. Next Saturday at about this time (11:00 PM EST) I'll do a random number generator . . . thingie, and we'll have winners!!

Good Luck!

And for something amusing in this post, I have two pics for you!

The first is from Anderson's in Chicago. This is a picture of me and Becky (on my right . . . your left, my right . . .) and all the kids who came to this amazing event. Awesome, smart, awesome kids. (Yes, I know I said awesome twice. They are awesome times two!)



Man, it was so the best night ever!!!!

And secondly, I've been holding this under my hat for a while, but now that it's up on amazon.co.uk, I can unveil my UK cover!!!!



Sorry about the borders. I don't know how to take them off . . . But I just adore this cover! The UK will be marketing WINGS to a younger audience and it totally shows in the whimsical nature of this cover. I love the flower and purple and the sparkles! And the byline. A new kind of faerie tale. I LOVE it!!!

And finally, WINGS has received it's first official honor!! It has been given a spot on the Spring 2009 Indie Next List for teen readers! I was so excited to find this out because the Independent booksellers are such a big part of a book's success or failure . . . that and they're just awesome.:D

So it's been a great week! Now go give someone you love a shout-out and win a prize!!!!

Ciao!

But here's the problem - I live in the Uk and so probably won't qualify for the comp.

Never mind if I can't enter. I'm glad to have found your blog and to learn about your new book. 'Wings' sounds great and I look forward to reading it. Lucky for me the UK cover is looking so fab!

I shall call by again soon.

Gabrielle said...

Aprilynne -- I love reading over your blog. I actually had to add it to my favorites because I don't know how to "follow" yours. (I'm trying, and sooner or later I will get used to all this blogging stuff!) You are an inspiration, thanks a million!

Shout out:

Mom, you are simply the best. I don't know what I would do without you. I'm glad we have eachother because we can make it through anything. Team work, baby! Love your one-and-only daughter, Gabrielle.

P.S. Even if I don't win 1st place, I am going to purchase your book! (Even though I will have to pre-order it on Amazon!!)


Thanks again, and hope all is well!
