In the spirit of the holiday season,
we will be giving away gifts!
First of all, we have an ARC of client Bill Konigsberg’s THE PORCUPINE OF TRUTH, (Arthur A. Levine Books, May 2015). Did you love OPENLY STRAIGHT?! How about OUT OF THE POCKET? Well, THE PORCUPINE OF TRUTH is the next gem from Bill. The prolific and talented Andrew Smith (WINGER, GRASSHOPPER JUNGLE, 100 SIDEWAYS MILES, etc…) said that THE PORCUPINE OF TRUTH is “undeniably human and unforgettably wise,” and my very own husband said, “Great characters, great mix of sweet, serious, funny and important.” So there you have it. If you win this little gifty, you’ll get to read Bill’s next book months before anyone else!
We also have a galley of Lindsay Eyre’s THE BEST FRIEND BATTLE (Scholastic, March 2015). This is a chapter book for kids aged 7-10, and is illustrated by Charles Santoso. (Charles is also the illustrator of client Joe McGee‘s zombie picture book PEANUT BUTTER AND BRAINS, coming from Abrams in Fall 2015.) If you have a friend who’s in 2nd through 5th grade, this would be a nice present for them!
We’re also giving away a 9 disc audio book of IF I EVER GET OUT OF HERE by Eric Gansworth, read by the author. I don’t know about you but I adore hearing books read by the people who wrote them. “Acclaimed adult author Eric Gansworth makes his YA debut with this wry and powerful novel about friendship, memory, and the joy of rock ‘n roll.”
But wait! That’s not all! Because we’re also giving away a boxed set of THE HUNGER GAMES trilogy (The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Mockingjay) in case there’s anyone left on the planet who hasn’t read these books.
Lastly, we’re giving away a 10 minute Skype call with…Me! The winner of this gift will have 10 minutes of my undivided (ADD) attention, to ask questions about publishing, talk about books, ask for advice, etc…(but please don’t pitch me a project please).
