Okay, so I’ve been thinking…I’ve got this book coming out in March (a little something called DESIRES OF THE DEAD). And yes, I know that’s still very far away, but I’ve got a dilemma and could really use your help.
DESIRES OF THE DEAD has this great tagline:
The missing dead call to Violet.
They want to be found…
But I also need a “catch phrase” of sorts…you know, something that I can use as a fun one-liner for signings, on my websites, maybe even for my swag.
With THE BODY FINDER, it was:
What is your echo?
I love that…it’s dark and mysterious…and yeah, just a tad morbid. I want something like that for DotD, but you know what??? I got nothing!
So, unless you want me sending out posters that say “Don’t party too hard!” and signing books with “Have a nice summer” I’m gonna need your help. All I’m looking for is that perfect blend of cool and creepy. That shouldn’t be too hard, right???
Fine, it IS hard but I’m willing to pay for your help. Okay, so maybe not pay exactly, but definitely bribe you with fabulous prizes.
So, for my Writer’s Block Contest, I want you guys to come up with that perfect one-liner (even though I’ll probably tell everyone that I came up with it myself! ;). Be creative, be clever, and you can even be sinister if you must. And in return, I’ll give my top two favorite “catch phrases” each a special Harper prize pack.
FIRST PLACE will receive:
Wait for it….an ARC of UNEARTHLY by Cynthia Hand!!!!!!! (Oh, and did I mention that I’m blurbing this book??? Yeah, I loved it THAT much!!!)
PRETTY LITTLE LIARS by Sara Shepard (This is the new one with the way cool TV series cover).
And PRETTY DEAD by Francesca Lia Block.
And SECOND PLACE gets:
KISSES FROM HELL, an awesome anthology by Kelley Armstrong, Richelle Mead, Alyson Noel, Kristin Cast, and Francesca Lia Block.
An ARC of VAMPIRE CRUSH by A.M. Robinson.
And the first 7 chapters of BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS by Anna Godbersen. (I love this cool mini-ARC!)
Unfortunately I have to limit the prize packs to US residents only, but here’s the thing, I really want you International folks to help me too, so I’ve come up with a compromise. If you’re an International reader and I choose your “catch phrase” for first or second place, I’ll send you a gift certificate worth $20USD for the online bookseller of your choice (in lieu of the prize packs). See, I didn’t forget you!!!
And just in case you’re like me (and like to do a little research) here’s where you can find more info about DESIRES OF THE DEAD:
Okay you guys, you have until Friday, November 5th, now get out there and Creep. Me. Out!
