Smart Chicks Kick It Tour Giveaway!


Finally! Finally an author appearance event is actually happening in my city! All these times I've had to endure whenever someone posted about author event signings in their town, all the cool people they met, all the awesome books they got signed, yada yada yada, and I just had to sit here behind my computer, quietly seething away in jealousy - no more!

The Smart Chicks Kick It Tour is coming to the Chapters Westside in Edmonton on September 13, 2012 and - if I may take a moment to boast - it's going to be AWESOME. Why? Because check out the lineup: Kelley Armstrong (Darkest Powers, Darkest Rising), Melissa Marr (Wicked Lovely, Carnival of Souls), Ally Condie (Matched), Beth Revis (Across the Universe), Veronica Roth (Divergent), Margaret Stohl (Beautiful Creatures), and Charles de Lint (who, as far as I know, has written a book - Under My Skin - that neither contains a female protagonist, nor is it written by a Smart Chick... but I'll still be happy to meet him!).

It's also my birthday today (the day after Harry and Jo's!), so what better occasion to have a giveaway? I will be giving away one Smart Chicks Tour book of your choice. The winner can pick any book from any of the authors above and I will purchase that book for them and get it signed.

Rules
1. To enter, fill out the Rafflecopter form below
2. Open Internationally
3. Ends August 31 at 11:59 PM EST
5. Entrants must be at least 13 years old
6. The winner will be announced on the blog and will have 48 hours to respond with their address.

Good luck! a Rafflecopter giveaway

  45. OMG OMG I AM GOING TOOO!!!!! And I thought it was Chapters Westside not West Edmonton Mall??? It's different right? Check here--> http://www.smartchickskickit.com/schedule.html Also I feel the exact same way about no authors coming to Edmonton! :( Can't wait for it!!! Hope to see you there. Also where did you see that poster? I haven't seen any :P

    1. Hmm, I saw that poster in Chapters West Ed Mall, so I automatically thought that was where it was taking place! And it seems like the obvious Chapters for it to take place. I guess it's happening really close by to that one then. I will change the info in the post - thanks for letting me know! Maybe we can prove to them that Edmonton is a great place for authors to come!
