contest: win a signed copy of SPELLS by Aprilynne Pike

So this weekend I went to LDStorymakers conference in Utah, which was just amazing. (More elaboration later, but for now check out my stalking tendencies at my friend Jeni’s blog)

So first thing each morning, I was able to participate in a writer’s bootcamp, where I got my first chapter critiqued. I was so luck to have Aprilynne Pike as my bootcamp sergeant, and I just want to say what an amazing person she is. She was so hilarious and honest. . . and she gave great feedback to help each of us. And she had some great stories about the publishing world on top of it! So basically, if you get the chance, YOU MUST MEET THIS AUTHOR! Aprilynne is going on tour to promote her book, so check out her website to see if she’s coming near you!

So as the result, I’m giving you guys the chance to win a SIGNED copy of Aprilynne Pike’s upcoming book: SPELLS. (Did I mention it’s signed?)


All you have to do is leave a comment below. I know, so simple right? Nothing to it. So go ahead and do it — the winner will be randomly selected and announced May 18. Check back then for a winner.

The Deadline is (Monday) May 17. Comments will be closed at 11:59 PST.

    Oh I wanted this, but they were all sold at the conference before I got there. I didn’t see you at Storymakers – too bad. I’d love to win this, but do we really have to wait until May 18th to know the winner? That’s a really long time.

    Wings review: Book Summary
    Homeschooled Laurel enters a public high school and feels a bit different. But she feels even more so when a large blossom starts growing out of her back. Soon she discovers that she is a fairy changeling, placed with a human family to keep one of the gateways to the fairy world of Avalon safe. Torn between a human boy and a fairy, she also discovers that trolls are after her land, and that her human parents are in danger.
    For Parents:
    Violence: A bloody fight, trolls try to kill a boy and a fairy, necks are snapped, two characters are shot.
    Sex: Several passionate kisses, a mention of “making out,” discussions of periods and sex.
    Language: One use of “s.”
    Consumerism: Soda, snack food, shoe, candy, kitchen product, cold medication brands mentioned.
    Drinking, drugs, & smoking: Morphine is used on a very sick man.
    Overall for kids 12 and over.
