Everything But the Kitchen Sink + Giveaway

Well, hello there! 2013 was a crazy year, and I've sort of fallen off the blogging train. Sorry about that!

Consequently, I've missed posting about a few things! Including a bunch of signed books I have to give away!

First, let me share a couple of amazing book events I went to. In early November, I attended launches for Jessica Souders's book REVELATIONS, which is the sequel to her amazing debut RENEGADE.

And I made Jessica a present for her release:
My phone didn't take a great photo of them, but they are canvases with Jessica's favorite scenes from each book mod podged on them, and then the cover printed on vellum over the top. RENEGADE's is surrounded with blue sea glass, and REVELATIONS's is surrounded with rope and sea shells. :)

Keep reading for a GIVEAWAY of a signed copy of REVELATIONS and some swag!

Then, the very next day, I went to Vivi Barnes's launch for her debut OLIVIA TWISTED, a retelling of Oliver Twist with hackers! I got to read an ARC of OLIVIA TWISTED, and I LOVED it!

 Here she is, signing Jessica's copy of OLIVIA TWISTED.
And here she is reading from a chapter!

I gave Vivi a present, too, but I didn't get a picture of it. I made her a scrabble tile necklace with her cover on it. :)

Keep going to get to a giveaway of a signed paperback of OLIVIA TWISTED and swag!

I have two more books to give away, as well. You know how I always get signed books to give away after I attend a conference? Well, I got two books signed for you guys at the SCBWI FL Orlando Workshop in June. Annnnd they've been sitting on my nightstand ever since. #FAIL So I have a paperback of WITH OR WITHOUT YOU by Brian Farrey and a signed paperback of BEWITCHING by Alex Flinn to giveaway, as well.

So, at the end of this post is a Rafflecopter form for you. To make things easier for myself, I'm doing one Rafflecopter, but I want you to win the book you want most, so make sure to list the books in order of MOST WANT to LEAST WANT. I'll choose four winners and try to give everyone their fave if I can. <3

I was going to do a 2013 wrap up and wishes for 2014 post, but this post is long enough, no? I'm going to another conference this week, so hopefully I'll be more ON IT, and do another giveaway when I get back!

Happy 2014, everyone!
