Update: Whoa! We've had a huge response to this contest in the last few days, and already hundreds of votes. The current top 3 cities by votes are: Boise, Toronto, and Lansing. To see the top 10, head on over to the YA 2 U site: ya2u.blogspot.com/2013/01/star… I can't wait to see what city I, Beth Revis, Marissa Meyer, Victoria Schwab, and Megan Shepherd will fly to!
Happy New Year, deviants!! Well, it looks like we survived a rather anticlimactic apocalypse--I hope you all had a lovely holiday and that you all had tons of delicious food!
I have a really fun announcement for you guys on this first day of 2013. There's a project that I'm a part of this year, and it's called:
What is it? Well, Bringing YA to You (or YA2U for short) was a project that came from you guys--all of you who have ever said, "Why won't a book tour make a stop in my hometown?" Well, that's what we (and by 'we', i mean me and four other authors) want to do! We're hosting a contest--everyone gets to put in whatever city they most want us to go to, and whatever town has the most votes, will get an exclusive tour stop from all five of us!
I'm so excited about this project, because for the first time, we get to let our readers choose our tour stop, and I can't wait to see where we'll end up!
And that's not all--we're also hosting another contest where, if you help us spread the word, we'll give you ten signed books, all the books we've published so far!
You can find the full details of the YA2U project here: ya2u.blogspot.com and you can also go ahead and enter your hometown for the win and help spread the word. There's also lots of cool features on the site, including downloadable posters (consider putting them up in your school or library! More votes = a better chance for you to win!) and other tips on how to win.
Now, notice how there are four other amazing authors who are a part of this? Want to know who they are? To find out the next mystery author who will be on our YA2U tour, click here marissameyer.com/blog ! And happy new year, deviants--can't wait to spend another year with you guys. <3
I'm pulling for Atlanta or somewhere on the East coast so I can see you again!
Marie, I've got nothing to say except that I love you and also I'm still not over the ending of PRODIGY even though its been months since I read the ARC. I shall go weep in a corner now.
I've met two of these authors and haven't read the others and I figure Texas is a popular enough place without my vote. I think I'm going to cast my vote to a hometown somewhere that not many book tours take place! I think those people deserve a chance to meet you guys not matter how bad I want to see you and Beth Revis again haha.
Oh that's really exciting! Since I must be the only one from my city, not sure how well that'll work out XD.
Butttt Happy New Year!
