Happy Holiday Swag Contest!
As promised, today is the day I unveil the slick new swag for my holiday contest. This swag bag is chock-full of goodies you can keep for yourself, give as gifts for the holidays, or use in a blog giveaway.
In my opinion, there IS no better gift than a book, so for this contest, I’ve featured some of my favorite reads. It was REALLY hard to choose just this many! So to compensate, I’ll be listing in an upcoming blog post my own Best Books to Give as Gifts for various age groups, likes/dislikes, etc.
In the meantime, feast your eyes on this awesomeness (and I apologize in advance for the photo quality – my camera was on a weird setting and I don’t have time to go back and retake these!)!
Included in this batch of swag is;
$25 Hot Topic gift card
$15 iTunes gift card
Black-and-white checkered scarf
Set of earrings including the awesome rose ones!
Signed Prophecy of the Sisters locker poster
Prophecy of the Sisters locker magnet
Prophecy of the Sisters bookmark
August Rush DVD
Music & Lyrics DVD
Edward Scissorhands DVD
Tons of candy including a mini-gum ball machine, Mentos, a King-size KitKat, bag of Lindt white chocolate truffles, and MOAR!
And my favorite! The BOOKS!
Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle Trilogy including a Great and Terrible Beauty, Rebel Angels, and The Sweet Far Thing (timeless!)
Tamora Pearce’s Terrier and Bloodhound, the first two books in the Bekka Cooper series (magical!)
Lisa Mantchev’s Eyes Like Stars (brilliant!)
Prophecy of the Sisters audiobook narrated by the incomparable Eliza Dushku
Can you say WOOT!

That’s a total of SIX possible entries! Because of the weight of these books (of which there are many), I’m afraid this contest is only open to entrants in the US. I’m sorry! You guys know how much I love my International readers, but it would truly cost me a fortune to ship this overseas. 😦
Feel free to enter, though if you have a US address to which everything can be sent.
Contest will run through midnight EST, November 30th, 2009.
I want to take a moment to thank the Guerilla Girls for including Prophecy of the Sisters in their Best Books of 2009! This one was a real honor, because Guerilla Girls On Tour is such an empowering group. Thank you! ETA: The Guerilla Girls Book List is actually a relisting of the books chosen by Women in Letters and Literary Arts (WILLA). WILLA is still accepting nominees to the list, and I can’t think of a more worthwhile aim than to honor great books written by talented women, so go take a look!
Prophecy of the Sisters is also a 2009 Cybils Nominee in the category of Fantasy/Science Fiction for Teens. Check the Cybil site on January 1st for the finalists!
Lastly, Prophecy of the Sisters is the featured book on the Five Awesome YA Fans website for the month of November. I’ll be guest blogging there all month and will also be posting the AMAZING new musical theme composed by my teenage son, Kenneth, for the second book in the Prophecy series, Guardian of the Gate.
Hope you are all well!
