Now, here are the particulars of MY GIVEAWAY and RULES:
I like to keep it simple folks. For a chance to win the Grand Prize, the First Prize and the Second Prize, leave a comment with your e-mail or some way to contact you. That's it! What could be simpler? I don't require you to become a follower, but if you think this is a place you'd like to visit in the future and keep track of the goings-on here, I'd be honored. Winners are chosen randomly, so when you enter, there is no guarantee which prize you'll win. The giveaway is open to residents of the US and Canada only. Sorry guys, but it gets expensive. The winners will be announced July 18th. Let's go over the lovely prizes:
The Grand Prize consists of a hardcover edition of the YA book, The Ivy that the publisher sent me. It's the first book of a trilogy. Book two released in March. It's about a girl entering Harvard and all the craziness she has to juggle with snotty girls, cliques and hot boys. The authors are both Harvard graduates. Part two of the Grand Prize consists of two charm bracelets. One gold toned and the other silver toned. I love to collect antiques and they have old, vintage charms on them.
The First Prize consists of the YA ARC, Vixen, the first book of a trilogy. There's a lot going on in this story! It's set in the twenties and there's a forbidden interracial relationship, illegal drinking and girls being very naughty. The sequel comes out this summer. The First Prize winner will also receive a goldtoned charm bracelet. It includes some charms made of mother-of-pearl and an enameled fish!
The Second and final prize consists of the hardcover edition of the novel, The Secret Life of Bees. This winner gets a silvertoned charm bracelet as well!
All the winners will receive Beautiful Creatures/Beautiful Darkness swag.
