Nope, not mine. My good writing buddy (and one of my amazing crit partners) Rachel Allen (newly signed author repped by the amazing Susan Hawk of The Bent Agency) is running a contest on her blog for a chance to win a copy of Larkstorm by Dawn Rae Miller AND a copy of Looking for Alaska by John Green. Check it out HERE! 

Good luck! Both are great books!!!!!!

Congratulations, Monica! Hope you enjoy owning these awesome books (and of course lending them to all your friends so they can share the love as well!--just make sure you get them back!) I will be emailing you shortly for your addy deets!

Thanks to all who entered! I wish so hard I had copies to give everyone! But, if you have not yet read any of these books, please do so. You will not be disappointed! I will be having more contests in the future with other awesome titles so please check in!

And to Courtney Summers, CONGRATULATIONS on all your success and I look forward to owning This is Not a Test. Knowing me I'll probably end up purchasing an additional copy to give away so I can continue to share the CS love <3 <3

Okay, people, this is it! We are only a couple of weeks away from Courtney Summer's official release date for This is Not a Test! (June 19th for those of you not keeping track *smack smack* shame on you!)

Anyone who really knows me knows I totally fangirl over CS. Well, not her per se ('cause that would be like stalkerish, right?), but over her awesome books. Oh, and I love the fact that she's a gamer. And that she likes zombies. And that she sometimes has a dark/funny sense of humor that I can relate to. Okay, so I might be slightly stalkerish, but I swear I don't sneak into her window and watch her sleep ('cause she's like in Canada and that would require me showing my hideous passport photo and going through customs and that wouldn't be pretty 'cause I pack some weird ass stuff when I travel--ALL LEGAL, I SWEAR!) But really. She's crazy cool and has a great online presence. (I tweeted my idea to her one day that we should invent a treadmill that's set up with a virtual surround screen with zombies chasing you. She thought it was a great idea :D)

Anywhoo, lets keep this short. Here's the deal. In celebration of the release of her latest novel, I'm giving away all three of her previously published books. Yep. You heard saw it here. No need to clean that wax out of your ears gunk out of your eyes. I'M GIVING AWAY ALL THREE OF HER PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED BOOKS!!!!

I actually bought these books to give away. I bought one copy of each for myself and additional copies, which I have been saving for when her next book was coming out. 'Cause I is cool like dat. :D But srsly, it's because I love her stories and her writing style so much and want to share the love with others who have not had an opportunity to read these books or wanted to own them but just haven't had the money to purchase them but would love to have them sitting on their book shelf because they're COURTNEY FREAKING SUMMERS' BOOKS!!! 

I'm going to make this contest easy. All you have to do is leave me a message in my comment section and then tweet this contest or blog about it or tell a friend about it. I'm not going to make you join my blog or my twitter account (though if you want to you're more than welcome to do so). I'm not even going to stalk you to see if you have tweeted or blogged about it. I'm going on good faith here, people. I'm going to trust you, my fellow human being, to do the honorable thing and help me spread the word about this contest. And don't be greedy now. I know how this works. You think, if I don't tell anyone less people will enter to win and I'll have a better chance of winning. *insert evil smiling emoticon* Uh, huh. Yup. Been there, done that, thought it. You are all my Obi Wan Kenobis.  I need your help!   

Don't forget to leave your email or a link to your blog or twitter  or some way I can contact you if you should be the winner. You have until Friday, June 14th at midnight to enter and I'm going to pick a winner using Unfortunately, I'm pretty broke at the moment so I will only be able to open this contest to people in Canada and the United States. Sorry :-(  

Good luck!!!
