ETA: Yes, this contest IS international! I have a very good friend who lives in Australia, so foreign shipping does not scare me! :)
One week! One week until HEX HALL comes out! *runs, flails, knocks things over* When I got up this morning, I was determined to make up a song about my book release to the tune of The Barenaked Ladies' "One Week." So far, I've come up with, "It is one week 'til my book comes out..."
Yeah. That's it.
Probably because I have the attention span of a gnat these days, which has been kind of crappy since I'm currently editing Book 2! There's a good chance that when it gets back to Editor Jen, she'll be all, "Um...why does Chapter 23 now end in mid-sentence?"
It's actually really hard to sum up my feelings right now. They're equal parts excited ("My book! My lovely book OUT where people can READ IT!") and terrified ("I'm going on TOUR! What if I somehow screw that up? Like I get on the wrong plane? Or I forget to pack something essential, like clothes?")
But overall, despite the nerves and the mushy brain, the main emotion I have going on right now is HAPPY! Because after nearly 2 years of talking about it, y'all can finally read HEX HALL!
And to celebrate my happy, I feel like it's time for another giveaway! (Ooh! Speaking of giveaways! Catie S from BookBound! I still need your deets so I can send you the Happy HEX HALL!)
I'll be getting my Hexy t-shirts in this week, and I am DYING to give them away, because holy hell weasel, are they cute!
People. You know you want one of these. And you know what? I don't JUST want to give away t-shirts. I wanna give away an autographed book, too. AND since there are SO MANY AWESOME BOOKS coming out right now, I think I'll throw in a $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble.
So that's a t-shirt, a book, and money to buy MORE BOOKS.
How do you win all this bounteous glory? SO EASY!
You can do one of the following:
1) If you have a blog, please post a picture of HEX HALL. If you wanna get all crazy, you can talk about it, or me, or Why Prince Caspian Should Marry Me Already. Whatever! But there's no extra points for talking about it. Just posting the cover is enough! (Although there will be MEGA MAJOR BONUS POINTS if you somehow do find a way to make Prince Caspian propose to me.) Once you've done this, leave a link to your blog in the comments section of this post!
2) If you don't have a blog, or just don't feel like posting a pic of HEX HALL on it, post a pic on Twitter with the #hexhall hashtag! Also, please make sure you put @ladyhawkins somewhere in your Tweet so that I'll see it!
3) If you do not have a blog or a Twitter, but DO have a Facebook, change your profile pic to the HEX HALL cover, and again, leave a link to it in the comments section!
NOW. A VERY IMPORTANT CAVEAT. Please, for my sanity, just pick ONE of these options. That way, everyone gets entered once, and I'm not keeping track of a bajillion things. (Did y'all see that part earlier about how crazy my brain is these days? Yeah.)
The contest is open until 12:00 AM (Central Time) March 2, AKA Release Day Of Amazingness!
Now go! Spread Hexy love all over the interwebz!
Wait, that sounds dirty...
