Week of Awesome Continues...Giveaway Extravaganza!


Happy Holidays, all! The giveaway continues here at the archives with your host...er...me! In a few weeks, I've got a great interview and giveaway lined up with the amazing Pam Bachorz (CANDOR, DROUGHT) but in the meeeeeeeantime...

2010 was a GREAT year for books! I've got a total of EIGHT ARCs of books that came out this year, some that you may have heard of, some that may be new and wonderful to you. I'm giving away TWO sets of four ARCs each:

First Pack:
THE DEAD TOSSED WAVES by Carrie Ryan
TIPS ON HAVING A GAY EX-BOYFRIEND by Carrie Jones
THE LAST SUMMER OF THE DEATH WARRIORS by Fransisco X. Stork
TO COME AND GO LIKE MAGIC by Katie Pickard Fawcett


Second Pack:
THE SPACE BETWEEN TREES by Katie Williams
HOLD ME CLOSER, NECROMANCER by Lish McBride
RUSH by Jonathan Friesen
THE GOOD GIRL'S GUIDE TO GETTING KIDNAPPED by Yxta Maya Murray


In addition, I'm throwing in one of favorite books this year (even though it didn't come out this year...although I've read some John Green before, I'm late to the Nerdfighter's party. DFTBA, guys!): PAPER TOWNS by John Green!


And if that's not enough, I'm offering up a personalized drawing, subject of your choice! Could be someone from your manuscript or someone else's. Examples of my work are here: kristimariecriddle.blogspot.com...to give you an idea of what might possibly suit your fancy.


SO! Four prizes! The first winner I pick gets first choice, second second and so on as you might imagine things like this would go.

How to win? Easy Peasy Mac & Cheesey.

1. Leave a comment on this here post! That's it!
2. If you'd like to tweet or blog about the contest, send me a link (or post in the comments) and I'll add you in the pool again.
3. Do my Christmas shopping for me. It's easy, really.

You have until WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 29th to get your name in! The prizes won't come in time for Christmas, but who doesn't love to start the New Year off with some free books?

Good luck! We always appreciate you coming over to the Archives, we really do. Happy holidays!

i'd post the link to my tweet about it, if i knew how.

*awkward pause*

why yes, i'm an 80 year old grandmother, how'd you guess? it can't be my lack of technical skills?

Mamie said...

If I win, I want a drawing of the chicken car from district meeting in Taichung. pig time.

I'd love me some good books, especially if you recommend them.

K. Marie Criddle said...

Ha, no worries, LT! (This isn't an entry either.)

And Mamie, I just spat spaghetti reading that. "Out of the road, chicken car!" "I hate this thing." Mission humor: fuhuole!

Queen 'Bina said...

Here I am! Pick me, pick me! These look like some really amazing prizes. I totally can't wait until you announce me as the first winner.

Now I'm off to blog about it; over and out. (Hey, that's a 10 word sentence. But is it a novel? hmm...)

Valerie Geary said...

*sticks name in hat* I'll be honest...I just want that awkward pause. It would be very handy to have during family get-togethers.

Adam Heine said...

Commented.

And tweeted.

And I have no idea which prize I want more. I do like me some Criddle art, and of my own story? *faints*

Just Another Sarah said...
