So I recently finished Across the Universe by the awsome Beth Revis and I wanted to tell you about something she's doing. Beth has inspired me to go above and beyond, and rather than just sitting back and reading, I'm joining her and a few other authors in an upcoming event: they've having a contest to see which hometown they should hit next, and I've listed the info below for anyone interested in participating. Totally spectacular!! And even if you don't want to enter, or don't win, or are just too excited to know what to do, well, no worries :) The books will still be there for you to enjoy in alll its glory!
Have you ever wished that a big YA book tour would make a stop in your hometown? Well, here's your chance for that wish to come true! YA2U is a program that features five award-winning and best-selling authors who are holding a contest to see what city they should visit in an exclusive tour stop!
The authors are collecting votes from January 1 to February 15, and any city in the continental US or any Canadian city that has an international airport can win an exclusive visit from all five authors, including an author panel and book signing! Entering is super easy--and if you help spread the word about the contest, you can also enter win a signed copy of all of their books (TEN signed books in total!)--and the book contest is open internationally!
The authors in the program are:
- Marie Lu, the New York Times best-selling author of Legend and the upcoming Prodigy
- Marissa Meyer, the New York Times best-selling author of Cinder and the upcoming Scarlet
- Beth Revis, the New York Times best-selling author of Across the Universe, A Million Suns, and the upcoming Shades of Earth
- Victoria Schwab, author of The Near Witch and the highly-anticipated upcoming The Archived
- Megan Shepherd, author of the debut novel The Madman's Daughter
And they want to have an event in your home town! To participate, just go to the YA2U website and let them know what city you want them to come to. And while you're there, help spread the word about the contest and you can be entered to win all of their books--TEN signed books in total!
