FOREVER Cover Contest

Okay, and now the contest! I know I promised an icon-design contest earlier but I’m going to hold off on that because I will be useless for looking at and judging and choosing icons while I’m dancing around with dodgy internet overseas (although I’m told that Lithuania has the sixth fastest connection speed IN THE WORLD). Instead, we’re gonna go for the tried and true cover and pre-order link to win thing. Those of you who were part of the LINGER cover contest will remember this.



So, ze prizes?

1. two signed copies of the Linger audiobook, featuring the sex-on-a-stick narrator that reads Cole’s parts and the narrator who SINGS Sam’s songs in his parts.

2. a signed and intensely doodled in copy of LINGER, personalized to you, naturally.

3. a signed and intensely doodled in paperback copy of SHIVER, personalized to you, naturally

4. 4 LINGER tank tops provided by Scholastic (unfortunately only available in two sizes, small and improbably small.

5. A signed UK editon of LINGER.

6. 20 signed bookmarks

7. 15 doodled and signed bookplates

I am sad to say that if you are an international person, you are only eligible for prizes #6 and 7 (UNLESS you can provide a U.S. mailing address to me, in which case, you’re eligible for all). I don’t really want to have to limit it, but I spent $50 on sending my last two contest prizes out and my postage bill’s over $1000 this year. And . . . that’s a lot. Sorry, people with cool accents.

So, entering for prizes #1-5 is simple. On either your blog (only independent blogs like those on LJ, Wordpress, etc. -- Goodreads and Shelfari and listservs don’t count) or your Facebook, post the cover image and some version of WHOOO FOREVER, THE LAST BOOK IN THE SHIVER TRILOGY, PRE-ORDER A SIGNED COPY HERE! (so they know what exactly it is you’re posting) and the link to the pre-order site: http://www.fountainbookstore.com/autograph-maggie. Then come back and comment here with a link (you don’t have to make your facebook profile unprivate, just tell me it is and we can verify if your name gets picked). If you have a facebook and a blog, you can enter twice, just make sure you leave a unique comment for each entry, because that’s how they’re tallied. Please note if you’re an international entry. Please note, too, that ALL of those component have to be part of your entry to be eligible for #1-6.

And if you want a crack at those signed and doodled bookplates, prize #7, here it is: change your twitter or LJ or Blogger icon to the FOREVER cover for the duration of the contest, and come back here and gimme a link so I can see it.  

I know there’s always some question I didn’t answer in the rules, so if you comment with a question, I’ll edit this post to include the answer, okay, so that everyone can see it. Does that sound fair? Yes, yes, it sounds fair.

This contest ends on midnight the 19th, EST. I will post winners on the 20th.

As always, guys, thanks for playing. You’re terribly good sports.

Hi Maggie :) So for the number 7 win, we just post our link to our twitter? Like this? http://twitter.com/jakjakk Well, have fun over there in the UK, Can't wait to see you in Orlando, Florida! :D

Here is my twitter with my new icon. By the way, I like the color of the cover, Sam looks kind of what I thought he would look like. And Grace.. Ahh, it feels so new to see her in wolf shape but can't wait for Forever to see what is going to happen with them.

But her is my twitter for the prise 6 & 7:

(And my twitter name is inspired by Sams paper cranes. Now I'm doing Origami all the time.)

Hugs from Sweden!
