Giant SHIVER Giveaway & Book Trailer

And now for the contest! First of all, the lovely prizes.

1) Two ARCs of SHIVER, mailed out as soon as the contest is finished.
2) Two finished copies of SHIVER, mailed out as soon as I get my author's copies.
3) Two CDs of the music I wrote for SHIVER and LAMENT.
4) 15 minute live-chat with the author (that would be me) to talk about my books, your books, your dog, or whatever!

And the rules:

1) Watch the trailer I made for SHIVER below (it took me dozens of hours to make the hundreds of paper cut outs and then photograph the multiple frames per second)(Yes I am crazy).
2) Post a link to the trailer or embed the trailer online. Every unique place you post it counts as an entry. Sooo that means you can embed it on your LJ, post a link on twitter, post a link on your Facebook, and embed it on Myspace, and it would count as 4 entries.
3) Comment back here telling me where you linked it, numbered like so: 1. LJ, 2. Twitter, 3. Facebook, 4. Blogger, etc., with linkies, so I can spend my time writing more books instead of counting and verifying entries.

I will hold a Giant Drawing on Tuesday, July 7th, at 9 p.m., and post the winners here and on my Livejournal Blog.

Sound good?

Here's the trailer!


Eleni said...

Cool giveaway! Enter me please =)

I put the book trailer on my blog on my sidebar: http://lafemmereaders.blogspot.com/

I also twitted about it: http://twitter.com/lafemmereaders


Eleni said...

And also, I love the trailer, it shows your hard work in making it :)

Kristen said...

I love the trailer! I can't imagine cutting out all of those paper cut-outs - I'd have to be listening to an audiobook probably to do it.

I posted your video on my blog:

And I also tweeted on twitter (I still think it's weird to say tweeted...). https://twitter.com/bookgoil


Maggie Stiefvater said...

Thanks, Eleni! Two entries for you.

And Kristen, I was listening to the Chronicles of Narnia soundtrack (which I like better than the movie!) for a lot of this. And thank you! Two entries for you too!!

Carrie said...

Awesome contest and equally amazing trailer. I posted it on my blog, which can be found here:

Erica said...

Omg. I would never have the patience to cut out all those little shapes :P That's amazing!

I cannot wait to read Shiver!!!

I posted the trailer on my blog:

Maggie Stiefvater said...

Hey Carrie, Zia, and Erica! Thanks so much and I've done one entry for all of you!

I'm not normally a patient person, but for some reason, tiny fiddly bits of paper were very consuming.

Jess (The Cozy Reader) said...

Ok, so I did:

1. a blog post
2. Put it on my sidebar
3. Twittered it
4. Facebooked it
5. MySpaced it
6. LiveJournaled it

Hope they all count! I'd love to be entered for the final book. I have an ARC already but would still love the final copy. Plus that's one great trailer! :)

Maggie, I'm really looking forward to reading Shiver because I think the world is in dire need of werewolf novels. My best friend is the biggest werewolf fan in the world so I am always on the look out for werewolf things for her! I think it's amazing you wrote music for your books. I'm a filk fan and I know listening to music inspired by books gives the tales more depth. I am already enamored of the music in the trailer.

And Jess from Book Reviews by Jess sent me :)


Maggie Stiefvater said...

Brooke - thank you, your posts look great. Two entries!

Jazz -- thanks, four entries! And naturally the world needs more werewolf novels. ;) I just think that the soundtracks to movies add so much depth to them -- why not novels?

Hi Crimson! Thanks -- you're entered!

LadyVampire2u said...

For some reason I cannot see this trailer on my computer no matter how hard I try. Its annoying since I see everyone enjoying it and I cannot. But hopefully even though I cannot see the trailer or it's code, I can still participate by directing everyone here. So I do have your contest posted up at my blog:
1. http://ladyvampire2u.blogspot.com
and I have twittered about it as well under this name:

Caffey said...

Oh I loved that video! Its beautiful! I just went to check out the book and all, and so thrilled about this! I love reading YA like this and too with my two YA children as well. My son who will read this too is hard of hearing (and I'm deaf) so I wouldn't be able to hear the music and interview, but my daughter is hearing. I'd so love to be in this contest still if that's ok? I'm thrilled I checked into this book!
