As promised, the details on how you can win a much-desired ARC of Lauren Oliver's PANDEMONIUM, as well as a DELIRIUM special edition, both graciously provided by Lauren herself. (Sorry, she forgot to sign them, but you don't care because you can have her sign them when you meet her at a conference someday and that will be even cooler.)

And since I'm feeling a little crazy today, I may just throw in a surprise bonus book, an ARC that's so tasty one of my assistants decided to eat part of the cover :)

This is going to be a random drawing. There are 5 ways to enter. You can do all 5 and have 5 entries. This contest will run for 5 days.

1. follow the blog
2. like me on FB

4. tweet about this contest
5. comment on something on the blog, other than the comment you will be posting in this thread, which will be your actual entry. I know there's not a ton of content here (yet!), but between ranting about things that drive you crazy and raving about TV shows, there should be something for everyone, right?

  2. I'm RTing this! I'm @olsonkayla, btw. Thanks for holding the giveaway!

  3. I am so excited for this contest and to discover your website and books.

    So, I have:
    retweeted it
    followed you on twitter
    liked you on fb

    And I know that it's kind of a cop out because it was the last blog entry posted, but I did like the last one about over writing. Especially after doing nanowrimo, I feel like my job is now to cut, cut, cut, which is hard after being so concerned about word counts for the first draft. But, I feel like with so much more to say, I need to cut out that wordiness to make room so... great post!

  4. Hiii!

    Followed Blog. Followed you on Twitter. Retweeted entry.

    Also, am now looking up your book to see if I can snag a copy for a book blog I review for. :)

  5. Awesome giveaway! Okay, so I already followed you on twitter, which is how I saw this :) I RTd the tweet about the contest. I followed the blog. And I commented on a previous, and very awesome post. So that's... four? I think? Math is hard, I need a coffee.

    Thanks for hosting this!

  6. Thanks chicas :)

    Natalie--nothing is a copout. I'm new at this. You only have like four posts to choose from so all are fair game!

    Ang (and any other book bloggers interested in possibly reviewing) email me subject: book blogger, with a link to your blog and when the ARCs appear in the spring I'll see what I can do.

    I care more about unbiased quality reviewing (it's totally okay if you hate the book as long as you don't post a jpeg of Mickey Mouse barfing on the cover) than # of followers. It doesn't get much greener than me, but we all gotta start somewhere, right? :)

  7. Super excited for your upcoming book and your growing site!

    Follow you on twitter
    Follow your blog

    Keep the machine running! :)

  8. You have Pandemonium? Lucky duck!

    I'm a blog follower, and a twitter follower, and I like you on Facebook! That's threeeeee :) Dying to read this one

  9. I found this cartoon via Mary Kole at It's kind of how I'm feeling about the utter hopelessness of marketing via social networking. Thought ppl might enjoy ;)

  10. Of course it didn't turn into a link. I hate you, internet! If you've ever struggled to attract blog traffic, it's worth a cut and paste :)

  11. OMG!!! I would KILL for a copy of Pandemonium!!!! (okay not literally!!!)

    I am a Twitter follower (seeitorreadit)AND I commmented on this post AND you are awesome!!! lol flattery is soooo overrated :)
