Hello! SO! As promised, I’m hosing a Tumblr-only giveaway for a signed hardcover of THE DARKEST MINDS, one of the character totes, and one of the few ARCs of NEVER FADE that I have. (I’ll be hosting other contests on Facebook and Twitter as we get closer to the release date.) The only catch is, you have to work a little bit to enter :)
- First thing’s first, you need to reblog this post (sharing is caring), which will get you one entry
.- For an extra five entries, you need to post something TDM-related and tag it here on Tumblr as The Darkest MindsandTDM Contest (and any other YA Lit related tag you want to use, but definitely those first two). This can be anything from a graphic, a photo of you and your copy, your favorite quote, an image that reminds you of the characters, your playlist for the book, a song that you think works with the story, etc. THIS MUST BE ORIGINAL—you can’t just reblog someone else’s work (c’mon, that’s not fair) as an entry (though you should reblog their work if you like it… again, not as an entry). You can create as many posts as you want, but only one will count toward the extra five entries.
That’s it! To give people time to be crafty, the contest is going to run until July 5th. Yes, I will (gulp) ship internationally to be fair. Enter away, and send me an ask if you have any questions.
Edited to add two quick clarifications to the rules.
The #TakenWithTAKEN contest runs now through April 30th! For full contest details, entry form, and prize info, visit embowman.com.
Tah-dah! Here’s the cover for The Darkest Minds! It releases on 12/18/12 and is available for pre-order on Amazon. I’m holding a contest over on my blog to celebrate that y’all should totally enter. I’m giving away 13 galleys from a variety of genres: fantasy, sci-fi, dystopian, realistic fiction, etc!
(I told you guys this story was dark, right?)
Here’s the cover copy:
When Ruby wakes up on her tenth birthday, something about her has changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that’s killed most of America’s children, but she and the others have emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.
Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones.
When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. Now she’s on the run, desperate to find the one safe haven left for kids like her—East River. She joins a group of kids who escaped their own camp. Liam, their brave leader, is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can’t risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents.
When they arrive at East River, nothing is as it seems, least of all its mysterious leader. But there are other forces at work, people who will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living.
