Earlier this month, I reached 100 followers on this blog.
That’s about 98 more than I thought would ever care about this little scrap of the Internet or what I was saying on it. Couple that with having over 900 Twitter followers, and I’m feeling pretty damned flattered at this point.
But that’s not all! In less than two weeks – Monday, March 4th, to be exact – I turn 30. The big 3-0, as they say. A milestone I’m mostly excited about because the majority of my 20s were spent in an extended, teary flail as I tried to figure out real-life. And while I haven’t hit some of my big goals yet, especially in the realm of publication, I know that I am blessed and lucky and have a helluva lot to be grateful for as I enter a brand-new decade.
So I want to celebrate. Celebrate the blog, celebrate my birthday, celebrate you fabulous folks. Mostly that last one.
I’ve put together two prize packs that you can enter from now until 12:00 AM EST on March 5th. One of them is a collection of fantastic young adult and new adult contemporary books that I selected with the help of my personal contemp expert Dahlia Adler. (And if you’re not following her yet, she’s frickin’ fantastic.)
The second is a Merry Sisters of Fate prize pack, featuring works by amazing authors Tessa Gratton, Brenna Yovannof and Maggie Stiefvater.
(For the sake of convenience, I’ve linked to each book’s Amazon page so you can see what each is about. However, per winner’s request and subject to availability, I will order from Barnes & Noble or another ecommerce site.)

Since WordPress.com doesn’t like Rafflecopter script, I have links to the entries. A bit of a pain in the ass, I know, but I promise the Rafflecopter itself is easy-peasy:
U.S. entrants will get paperbacks unless they prefer otherwise. International peoples, you’re also welcome to enter as long as you’re cool with ebooks!
Click the links! Spread the word! I’m excited to celebrate with you guys and give a couple people some epic gifts.
I <3 all you guys.
