Ya know, I think it's about time for a contest.

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): The Middle by Jimmy Eat World.

Every once in a while I get this inkling, an empty place where something just niggles at me. And then I realize it is time to give something away. :)

So how about it guys, do you want an ARC?

How about an ARC for a book I've been dying to read since I first heard the publication announcement? (It's been a long wait, I know).

Does anybody want a copy of Defiance by CJ Redwine? :)

I had to blow it up so you could see how pretty it was. ^_^

Sure you do. Just LOOK at that cover! I've had some serious cover lust of this one. It makes me want a poster of it. *stares*

Here is the funny thing. This ARC came to me quite suddenly after I put the book trailer up on Feature Fun Friday. So no relation there (or is it? o.0) And since I know ARCs (Advanced Reader Copy) are meant to spread buzz for a book, plus this being a debut author with an incredible road-to-publication story, I read this one as quickly as I could so I could pass it along, and thus the joy multiplies. :)

So if you want it, take it! All you need is to be a follower, and leave an email address of some kind so I can notify you if you win. US only this time. I am so sorry my international friends. I think you are very pretty. Or handsome. Take your pick. But just know, I DO have a contest coming for you very soon! It is one I am super excited about. So on that note, comment away!

You have until midnight (go you, you Cinderellas) on Thursday August 16th PST (3:00 AM EST). YAY!!!!

I feel the exact same way as you. I have WANTED this since the first moment I heard about it, such a long time. Sigh. I got all excited and added it to my want list. But there is sits, perhaps, clear until Christmas time. Sigh, again. Such a crime to have to wait so long to have this book.

Wait... US only? Oh bother. Canada isn't really international, is it?

I went to Goodreads to read the description and--I kid you not--I squealed. Girl power and swords? Defiance sounds amazing!
