YA Week: Vampires, Witches & Fae

Today is the official start to our first themed week! Young Adult Week will run today through next Sunday. You'll find our YA Contest Extravaganza, interviews, reviews, humor and opinions galore. Let's start out with the contest details.


First Prize:
Bite Me! by Melissa Francis
Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz
Evernight by Claudia Gray
Poison Ink by Christopher Golden
Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith

Second Prize
Cart and Cwidder by Diana Wynne Jones (Book 1)
Drowned Ammet by Diana Wynne Jones (Book 2)
Daughter of the Sea by Berlie Doherty

All of these books are very gently read and will be shipped out by me after the winners are chosen by the Random Number Generator on Monday, April 12th in the morning after I log on to my blog.

The rules are fairly simple. Starting today with this introduction post, each comment will be an entry in the contest. The comment must be something more than 2 or 3 words, interacting with each post in some way; opinion, agreement, additions, etc. Each person can comment ONCE on each post. At the end of the week I will assign each comment a number, and pick first from those numbers for the 1st Prize and again for the 2nd Prize.

Example: If you comment once on each post during YA Week, and there are 14 posts, then you'll be entered 14 times.

I'll sort through the comments and delete duplicates, spam, or skip my own comments if I reply to someone. I'll go down the line from today through the week and number all the comments in order. Leave your email if it's not connected to your profile.

That's it! No extra entries, but if you would like to become a follower, or have my blog delivered by email I would appreciate it greatly. When I reach 100 followers I will run a contest for that too:)

Enjoy the week and good luck!
