Birthday Contest!

***CONTEST IS CLOSED***


To whom it may concern:

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! I'm now 20 years old and I am having a contest.


What am I giving away? I am going to give away four books that I picked up at BEA back in May.

Fire by Kristin Cashore
(ARC--release date: 9/09)













Girl In The Arena by Lise Haines
(ARC--release date: 10/09)












Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson
(Signed, Paperback)












A Map of the Known World by Lisa Ann Sandell
(Signed, Hardcover)










How to enter:

  1. Leave a comment and make sure I can a way to contact you via e-mail. No e-mail address, no entry.


How to get Extra Entries:

  1. +2 entries for blogging about this contest. Make sure you give me the link. Sidebars are AWESOME. (2 entries per each place, no maximum number of places... Twitter, blog, sidebar, etc. Make sure I can see it)
  2. +3 entries for being a follower or becoming a follower of Genevieve's Blog (she's having a giant contest for 15 books!)
  3. +3 entries for following me (make sure you let me know)
    OR
    +4 entries for my current followers (as of 7/1) and let me know
  4. +5 entries for joining my friends at the Five Awesome YA Fans Ning (make sure you let me know if you did, and what your user name is there.)

Open to: Open to addresses in the United States only (sorry, college student!)


Ends: July 31st at 11:59 PM PST**


**
There has to be a minimum of 60 people entering in this contest. I've seen some of the contests for Fire ARCs so I know that there is a demand. If I don't get 60 people by July 31st, I'll keep this contest open until I get 60 different people.


I haven't decided on how many winners there will be so list all of the books that you would like to win. There might be just one, two, three or four winners. We'll have to wait and see what the turnout is like.


Until I write again,

Adam
