Yes, on January 1, 2013, you can splash some water on your face, stumble out of your house and down to your local bookstore, grab a BIG cup of coffee and a delicious, fattening muffin, and buy the book. Or, pre-order it now so you'll get it in the mail on or around January 2nd. Whatever works for you.
Now, it'd be great if I had thousands of people reading this blog who did one of those two things. But I'll be lucky if three people read this post and do one of those things.
That's why I need your help!
I am looking for FORTY enthusiastic and motivated YA readers who want to be on my exclusive Street Team for the upcoming launch of Falling For You.
What do you have to do? IT'S SO EASY! You don't even have to have a blog to participate. I'll send you a special package with bookmarks, a few signed bookplates, and a little surprise gift just for YOU. Then be excited and give the stuff away to your best YA-loving friends, teachers, and/or librarians.
And please, PLEASE, if you join the team, do give some of the stuff away, okay? I wish I made a ton of money and I could just give a bunch of swag away for the heck of it, but I don't, so I really need people who will be dedicated street team members and not just a "oooh, I want free stuff" members, haha.
To make things interesting, I have *five* Advanced Review Copies of Falling For You I'm going to give away plus some other AWESOME Advanced Review Copies, like Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt, Poison by Bridget Zinn, and hopefully a couple of more I can wrangle from my publisher. These special gifts are reserved for the people who do the most to spread the word about my book. What does "doing the most" mean? I don't know yet, so be CREATIVE! Wow me! On-line stuff totally counts, you can send me links. In-person stuff totally counts, send me pictures!
Okay, so, you in? GREAT! Here's what you have to do. Sign up in the comments with your e-mail address. THIS WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE TO THE FIRST FORTY PEOPLE WHO COMMENT.** (Sorry, US only). Teens are VERY welcome to sign up, just make sure that if you're under 18, your parents/guardians are okay with you giving me your mailing address, because I'll need it to send you your package.
Ready, set, GO...
