A Thank You + Celebration Giveaway!


THANK YOU!!!!

Last Wednesday I shared the big news that I have an agent! If you missed it, you can read about it HERE. Then, you blew me away! The support from all of you was overwhelming: comments and tweets and FB tags and emails. THANK YOU!!! 

And as if that wasn't wonderful enough, Thursday was *sigh* amazing. Long-time followers of my blog know that I am a MAJOR fan-girl of James Dashner. Major. I mean, how could I not be? It's James Dashner!! 

Well, I spent most of the day with him on Thursday at the Montana State Reading Conference. I booked him for it...two years ago. It was a long wait. It was worth it!


He is even more awesome in person than in my imagination. So awesome that I can't keep him to myself, so to say thanks for all the blog love, I'm going to give away my TWO SIGNED ARCS!!

The Scorch Trials & The Death Cure


Because this is all about saying thank you, 
all you have to do to enter is 
 be a follower of my blog. 
I'll announce the winner on Saturday.

THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR CELEBRATING WITH ME!!

Again, super excited about your agent. But geeking out just the same that you met Dashner. I just finished the Maze Runner (I know, I'm way late to this party), so I think I should win. Forget randomness, I'm dying to get my hands on these. cheers.

I'd LOVE to win these! James Dashner has been so funny on Facebook about being 2nd to The Hunger Games. I think my son would disagree.

I'm going to share this contest on FB, but I really don't want to. I want to increase my odds!

Chris said...
