Everybody Sees the Pants Contest
Now I want you to make one on purpose.
For a very early ARC of EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS.
Before I get into contest stuff, I want to point you toward a few reviews and links for the week.
First, Maya wrote to me about two great reviews a VERA DIETZ one here and a D100D one here. Thank you Maya! I am so glad you're enjoying my books! Looks like you might enjoy ANTS too! Stay tuned.
Second, have any of you discovered Text Messages podcasts from ReadWriteThink? This week's podcast includes a few sweet words about EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS in an amazing piece about bullying books and a great chat with CJ Bott, one of the nation's experts on bullying and its effects.
Last, a few new dates for you calendar that haven't gone on my official calendar yet:
June 8th: Author Panel at Bryan High School, Omaha, NE 7-9pm Join Ellen Hopkins, Matt de la Pena, Coe Booth, Lisa McMann and me for two hours of awesome.
October 6th: The second to TWO national launches for EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS--Changing Hands bookstore, Tempe Arizona. Time TBA.
NOW FOR CONTEST DEETS:
In the past, innocent typos have revealed that I wrote books called The Dust of 1000 (or 10,000) Dogs, (Just found Dust of 100 Days) Please Excuse Vera Dietz and just today ( <3 U Mandee) Everybody Sees the Aunts. Part of me is reminded of those great clean up voice-overs they used to do on movies--like The Exorcist's "Your mother sews socks that smell."
Challenge: Take one of my book titles and make it hilariously all wrong. This can work in many ways. Subtlety is just as hilarious as going over the top, depending on how you do it.
How to Enter: Leave your entry in the comment area with you email address or a way to find you if you win! You can enter a maximum of 10 times.
Prize: A signed ARC (advance reader copy) of EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS.
Bonus points for: Related sequel titles to your all-wrong titles.
Deadline: June 6th, 2011 23:59 EST
I'm traveling a lot that week, so forgive me if the winner announcement isn't instant!
Tell your friends. This is going to be fun!
I'll be back in a week or two with some cool blurbs for EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS.
