September Street Team Check In.

Welcome (or welcome back!) to the monthly Street Team check in.

CONGRATULATIONS to Orchid, winner of the August STREET TEAM prize pack!

Okay, so that important business is out of the way, so let’s kick off the September Street Team EXTRAVAGANZA. You remember the deal, right? You get to be a member of my street team by telling the world about my book, SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE.

It’s really easy – and there are prizes! WHAT PRIZES? You ask?

Check this out: It’s a Special Limited edition

***SIGNED***

The Unwanteds Prize pack

Contains:

  • Signed copy of THE UNWANTEDS
  • SIGNED and limited edition postcards (created especially by Lisa McMann’s son to commemorate the series
  • An ISLAND OF SILENCE sticker
  • A special Simber Silly Bandz

So, if you haven’t joined up yet, here’s how:

To be a member of the SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE Street Team, all you need to do is spread the word about, well, SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE. How? you ask? EASY: You can tweet about it, do a Facebook note about it, like my page on Facebook, write about it on your blog, make a video about it, review it on Goodreads, send an e-mail to your friends telling them to check out the book, ask your library or local bookstore to carry the book, whatever! I just need you to be my people on the street, getting the word out.

Sound easy? Yeah, it is. Every month, I’ll do a draw for cool stuff: things like signed books (mine and by other cool people), Street Team SWAG, gift certificates etc. So to enter, all you need to do is spread the word and then come back and add a comment telling me what you did (and a link if it’s a video or post) and you’ll be entered in this month’s draw.

If you send an e-mail to your friends, telling them about SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE, you can count an extra entry for each one of your friends that you tell-just make sure you copy me on the message: contact@joannelevy.com

Each thing you do will get you one entry (other than the tell-a-friend thing above), but please try to put everything in one comment, to save me having to scroll through what I’m sure will be thousands of comments. Also, don’t forget to include your e-mail address, in case you win! Be creative (and legal, of course) and have fun! Ready? GO!

As always, if you’re super-lazy like me, you can just grab this:

Congratulations to Winner – Jillian Heise

Hi again. *Whew* It’s been a busy couple of weeks, and we’re not done yet! But I thought I’d kick off the BIG GIVEAWAY FINALE.

So here’s how it’s going to work. I need you to keep working on your Street Team activities (thank you for your efforts so far!). But I’m also going to add in a huge prize pack of awesomeness as a thank you to anyone who has bought my book.

Here’s what you can win:

That’s right: 8 books for that special young person in your life. But wait – there’s more!

I’m also going to throw in a SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE Street Team t-shirt. Swaggy bracelets, bookmarks (not just mine) and Lewis, the sock monkey.

All you have to do is send me an e-mail at contact@joannelevy.com with a scan of your receipt for buying SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE attached and tell me who you bought it for-yourself, your friend, niece, whoever – there is no wrong answer!

AND in addition to the prize pack above, I will also send you a signed copy of SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE, inscribed just the way you like, so that you can have a special one to keep for yourself or pass along.

So that’s 9 books, swag and my eternal thanks for buying my book.

You ready?

You’ve got until the end of the month: July 31 at 11:59 to send me your entry.

This prize pack contains: Phelps, the sock monkey, an author-made friendship bracelet with a Ouija board charm, a signed bookmark and a personalized-to-you signed postcard. Yes, signed by me. I asked Phelps, but he heard Gretzky wasn’t into it last week, so he’s not doing it, either.

Sometimes Cool Stuff Happens To Me

Some cool stuff happened that I’d like to tell you about.

First, blogger extraordinaire, Evie from Bookish surprised me on Twitter with this tweet: Book Thong I made for @JoanneLevy and am planning to trade it for some extra cupcakes at her awesome Launch:

HOW COOL IS THIS? Right? Evie, thank you – you’re getting a big hug AND extra cupcakes for this. I can’t wait to see the real thing (AND YOU) at my launch.

So that’s one cool thing, how about another? Yep. So here’s the review from Kirkus, those people who even call themselves “The world’s toughest book critics.” You know I bit my nails to the quick when I was waiting for this one, don’t you?

But I needn’t have worried!

Yadda, yadda, yadda…stuff happens (I’m paraphrasing) and then… “In a fresh, frank and funny first-person voice, Lilah tells of her ghostly encounters from the perspective of a normal Jewish girl coping with abnormal powers. Droll middle school drama.

Amazing, right? FRESH, FRANK and, most importantly, FUNNY! I’m over the moon at this good stuff.

Thank you Evie, Kirkus and the Universe for this awesomeness, and for you, who I can share it with.
