Welcome Vlog and Launch Contest!

It’s finally live! Yay!

Due to the awesomeness that is my old, slow laptop, I had some issues rendering out the video and was therefore a little late to my own launch party (ahem.) But it’s done and rendered and we’re all good. So go ahead, check out the video, then scroll down for contest details.



– There will be three winners/prize packs, and each prize pack will contain three books. Breakdown below.


Prize Pack #1

  • Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor
  • The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
  • The Line by Teri Hall (ARC)


Prize Pack #2 (isn’t it so pretty?)

  • The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
  • Across the Universe by Beth Revis (original hardcover)
  • Wings by Aprilynne Pike (paperback)


Prize Pack #3

  • The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
  • Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John
  • Perception by Kim Harrington (ARC)

How to enter:

– First, comment below to let me know which prize packs you want most, in the order you’d like to win them.


  • First choice: Pack 2
  • Second choice: Pack 1
  • Third choice: Pack 3

As I attempted to explain in the video, the first winner will get their first choice; after that I’ll do my best to get the second and third winners their top choices in prize packs.

– Get extra entries by following/promoting the contest.

  • Subscribe/follow the new blog +3
  • Blog about the contest +2
  • Follow me on Twitter +2
  • Retweet the contest +1
  • Share a link on Facebook +1

Essentially, any way you can think of spreading word about the contest that you can provide an actual link to will count as an extra entry 🙂

– Finally, make sure to include your email address in your comment entry.

Entries will NOT be considered valid unless you include the email! So make sure to do that. And don’t forget to include your links, let me know if you followed/subscribed, and what your entry tally is.

Other Details

– There will be three winners, one for each of the three prize packs.
– The contest will run until Thursday February 14th. (I announced the contest extension here.) from the time of this post until noon Thursday February 8th (EST)
– Contest open only to the consecutive US states. (Sorry guys!)
– The winning entry will be chosen using a random number generator, and within a few days of the contest close, I’ll be announcing winners and emailing them about their prizes.

So that’s it for contest details. Over the rest of the week I’ll be posting some of the content I mentioned in the video, like short stories and excerpts and such, so have fun in the contest, and don’t forget to check back for the rest of the blog launch celebration. Good luck!

Truly and always,

  2. Oh that’s tough to rank (hopefully I’m entering right.

    I would rank– #1, #3, then #2, but they all sound awesome and I haven’t read ANY of those books (*shame*)

    I’ll follow (duh) and blog!
