FINISHED COPIES!!!!! – plus the third Of Witches and Wind giveaway

OF WITCHES & WIND - finished copies

Finished copies of Book 2!!!

Aren’t they pretty?????

These came in the mail last week, and I had to go pick them up from UPS, since they needed someone to sign for them. They’re contractual copies–a clause in my contract with Simon & Schuster actually says that they must send me a certain number of each edition, which makes me very happy. I like to look at them when they’re all in packed together like that; it makes me feel wealthy in books. Of course, many of these no longer belong to me. I’ve promised a ton to book bloggers and family members, and I’ll donate some to public libraries and school libraries as well.

But as promised, I’ve pulled one aside to sign and give away here on my blog!!!

If you want it, just comment below and tell me what kind of magical creature/person you would really like to be. This isn’t limited to The Ever Afters’ world, so if you really want to be an Animagus at Hogwarts, who can turn into a unicorn with superior fighting skills, that’s awesome. Because I totally want to be one of those too. :-p

Also, you don’t need to be that specific.Β You could tell me that you would love to be a phoenix, or an Abominable Snowman, or Rudolph. There is NO wrong answer.

Entries close at 11PM EST/8PM PST on Monday, July 22 (basically, one week from today). I’ll post the winner first thing on Tuesday, July 23–a.k.a. THE DAY OF WITCHES & WIND COMES OUT! SQUEE!!! Can’t believe it’s so close! So even if you don’t win, you’ll be able to track down a copy in a library or bookstore.

(ETA 7.22.13 9PM PST: This giveaway is officially closed!! I’ll announce a winner first thing tomorrow morning! πŸ™‚ )

(ETA 7.23.13 12PM PST: The winner of this giveaway is Dara K! See the official announcement post here. Thank you to everyone for entering!!)Β 

P.S. Due to a shortage of awesome new swag, I’m not doing a Trivia contest this time around. But later this year, it will definitely happen!
