Contest: Bringing YA Authors To Your City

Want 5 best-selling YA authors to visit your area in a special tour? Just visit http://ya2u.blogspot.com and fill out a short electronic entry form, which counts as one vote. The more votes your city gets, the bigger the chance you have to score a visit in your city with Marie Lu (LEGEND), Marissa Meyer (CINDER), Beth Revis (ACROSS THE UNIVERSE), Victoria Schwab (THE ARCHIVED), and Megan Shepherd (THE MADMAN'S DAUGHTER). 

You can also enter a separate contest to win signed books.Another reason to check this out! 

The contest ends on February 15. 

Living in the Bay Area, I voted for my city (first choice) and a neighboring city (second choice).

Have you heard about this contest? Which author(s) would you like to get a hometown visit from?

Marie Lu visited my high school in SoCal last year... very cool that she could possibly be up here for a visit. Thanks for sharing!

Sounds like a cool idea! Is it just within the US?

Jill Haugh said...

Wow. This SO appeals to the control freak within me.
Thanks for the head's up.

Sounds like an amazing contest. Sadly, I don't think they'll come to my city. :-)

Sounds like good times! I'm going to see Brad Meltzer later this month in L.A. at a Barnes and Noble book signing.

And thanks for stopping by and joining the Re-Introduce Myself Blogfest!

Tammy: Go for it!

Mike: You should totally vote for our area.

Nick: I believe the rules say it applies to US and Canadian cities only.

Jill: You're welcome.

Misha: You'd never know if you don't try. =)

Stephen: Isn't it great to meet authors in person?

Haven't heard about this but it sounds interesting. Can't imagine any authors coming to the town where I live, but there are certainly enough who come to nearby Los Angeles which is just down the street from me.

How fun! I hadn't heard of this before. Marie Lu was at a local conference last year and is super nice!

Awesome idea! Usually authors steer south of us (Chicago). :)
