Looks like my easy-peasy giveaway might not be so easy-peasy. I mean, I'm pretty confident I will get some ARCs, but my agent told me to hold off on doing anything official because Random House will be keeping close tabs on publicity for this book and I need to wait before I go all nuts and start making promises.
So, I don't really know what to do but wait and see a bit.
However, I'd still like to do something to get the word out when Book 2 of THE 13TH REALITY comes out next week. So here are the rules for the dumbest contest ever run in the history of mankind:
If you do something to promote my book/series next week, I will do something for you.
How's that? Dumb? Yes. Ridiculous? Yes. Vague? Uh, yes. But it's the best I can do.
No, listen. I'm sure I'll get some ARCs. And those of you who promote 13th for me will get top priority.
I must say, LexiconLuvr and LouMac have already set the bar pretty high!
Remember that I will be at BYU this Thursday through Friday for the LTUE conference, with the very first signing of Book 2 on Saturday at 2:00 in the BYU Bookstore. For the schedule of panels and such, CLICK HERE.
Next Tuesday (Feb 24th) I'll have a signing at the Deseret Bookstore in St. George UT. On Friday the 27th, I'll be at the Logan UT Deseret Bookstore. I think both are at 7:00. Then Tuesday March 3 I'll be at the Orem UT Barnes and Noble. From there I got to Arizona for a week and a half and don't quite know the schedule yet.
All this should be updated soon over at www.The13thReality.com.
We've been talking so much about THE MAZE RUNNER, it's time to rev up the engines for THE HUNT FOR DARK INFINITY!!!! Next week! (Remember, it doesn't really have a hard street date, so it may vary when it shows up in your local bookstore.)
