YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes!

Welcome YAmazing Racers!

THE RACE IS OFFICIALLY OVER – Thanks for playing!

Thanks for stopping by. If you’ve made it here by accident, why don’t you play with us anyway? We’ve got lots of prizes and FUN to be had! See below for the full info and where you’ll find the starting line:

Mark your calendars: starting Wednesday, May 2nd at 12:00pm Eastern, the Apocalypsies will be hosting the second ever YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes – a week-long blog race featuring over 50 debut authors! Go to THE APOCALYPSIES any time between May 2-8 to join the race and learn more about the hottest new books debuting in 2012 – AND earn a chance to win one of several prize packs made up of signed ARCs and finished copies, gift certificates, bookmarks, jewelry, swag, and more!

Okay, so you’re in? Right. So we need to start with some info about my book, so here it is:

After she’s hit by lightning at a wedding, twelve-year-old Lilah Bloom develops a new talent: she can hear dead people. Among them, there’s her over-opinionated Bubby Dora; a prissy fashion designer; and an approval-seeking clown who livens up a séance. With Bubby Dora leading the way, these and other sweetly imperfect ghosts haunt Lilah through seventh grade, and help her face her one big fear: talking to—and possibly going to the seventh-grade dance with—her crush, Andrew Finkel.

Okay, got what you need from me? Then head over to see Anne Greenwood Brown: http://annegreenwoodbrown.com/yamazing-race-with-mgnificent-prizes/

BUT WAIT! BEFORE YOU GO – THERE’S MORE!

If you go over to my Facebook Page and give it a like and tell me that you came from the YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes, I will throw your name into a hat and at the end of the race, I’ll draw for a pre-order of my book. If I get over 50 new likes, I’ll draw for a second one. And if I get over 75 new likes, I’ll also draw for a copy of Gina Damico’s hilarious book CROAK, so make sure you tell your friends! And if you’re already a liker of my page, don’t worry – just let me know on the page that you are participating in the YAmazing race and you’ll be entered!

What are you waiting for? GO!!!

Have your say – a very important poll!

So. You know there’s a launch party for SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE, right? Of course you do. And you know you’re invited, right? Yeah, you knew that, too.

But, did you know that there will be cupcakes?

Probably.

But what you didn’t know, is that I want YOU to help me decide what kind of cupcakes there will be. So I’ve put together this nifty poll. I know these ALL sound delicious, but just pick your very favorite flavor and the most popular ones will be what I order for my party.

Come on! Be heard!

Even if you can’t make it, feel free to vote anyway!

Rocking the Drop!

Like several of my Class of 2k12 sibs, I’m rocking the drop tomorrow.  What does that mean? It means that in honor of Support Teen Lit Day on Thursday, April 12th, I’m going to be putting a couple of books out there for people to find. That’s right – I’m dropping FREE books into the wild to be found and enjoyed. For more info, check out ROCK THE DROP.
