It's Time - My First Book Giveaway!


I just got back from the SCBWI FL Conference, and all I can say is WOW.

What an amazing experience!

I will blog all about it, including some takeaways and pictures (!!!) later this week. For now, let's get started with the GIVEAWAY!

So, I bought three books to give away:
Jaclyn Dolamore's MAGIC UNDER GLASS
Michael Grant's GONE
and Kathleen Duey's SKIN HUNGER.

They have all three been signed just for you! Yay!

Here are the rules:
1. You must comment here to be entered in the drawing (1 point).
2. Current followers (following before I post this) get two additional entries.
3. New followers get one additional entry.
4. Tweeting/facebooking/blogging this giveaway earns you 2 additional entries for each instance (please include link in your comment, and if tweeting, use @lchardesty).
5. Include your email in your comment.
6. Please add up your entries in your comment.

Contest will close Monday, January 25, and I will post the winners (one for each book) on Tuesday, January 26.

I'm so excited! These are FANTASTIC books, and I cannot even begin to tell you how amazing their authors are.

Stay tuned for the following: My SCBWI FL wrap up, and my TIMEKEEPER'S MOON review (I was chosen as the next Farwalker's Apprentice, detailed here).

Good luck, and thanks for reading!
