WooHoo! Blogaversary and 100 Followers GIVEAWAY!!!

As I mentioned in my last post, today is my one-year blogaversary!  And, as luck would have it, I am also at 100 followers exactly!  SQUEE!

In celebration of those two awesomesauce events, I'm having a GIVEAWAY!

My amazing friend Jackie Dolamore recently went to BEA and ALA, and brought back a ton of ARCs.  She gave two to me, and now I will pass them on to you (of course I read them first - lol).

The first is FIRELIGHT by Sophie Jordan.

The second is LOW RED MOON by Ivy Devlin.

There's a third prize! I'm also giving away a 50-page critique by yours truly!

So, how to enter:
