A giveaway? Yeah!

Why? Cause you all are awesome and when I get donation from a blog that has like 50 followers I want to hug everything in the book world.

However, I have ulterior motives.

So some of you smart people might have noticed that I finally created a separate email for this blog. Believe me, it will help ALL THE THINGS.

But, I've gone one step further. I've decided to create a Twitter for this blog. Why? Cause I tend to tweet about a lot of things that are not ARCycling-related. Like my strange obsession with bagels. Or my love for French Press coffee. Or writing, revisions, or general commentary while in the stages of writing or revising. Or when I live tweet my Lord of the Rings marathon with my own extremely nerdy commentary. Or whatever strangeness I will get myself into in the future. Point is, some of you might not want to read all of that. So, here is the ribbon cutting of:
Don't get me wrong! I will still tweet an obnoxious amount on my personal Twitter about ARCycling, but all official tweets will also be on @ARCycling.

Okay, so what about this aforementioned giveaway? Well, here's the SCOOP.

The first thing that everyone should know is that this giveaway is open to EVERYONE. Everyone! Writers, bloggers, authors, teachers, librarians, book fans, coffee fiends, doughnut lovers, whoever!

For something this epic I went digging into the depths of my piles. If you aren't picturing a Scrooge McDuck-like set up, then you're picturing it wrong. Cause it's kind of like that. Now, here is what I unearthed.

Prize #1
A signed and doodled on ARC of Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi.
No, really. I got this ARC before they had finalized the cover art and when I met the lovely Tahereh, she drew Juliette on the cover. If you don't believe me...

Sorry for the crappy photo. I don't have Photoshop on the new computer yet. I am limited to a cellphone and my cleverness. Or... lack thereof.

Prize #2
A SIGNED ARC of Such Wicked Intent by Kenneth Oppel.

Prize #3
A SIGNED ARC of False Memory by Dan Krokos.
*I should say, he signed while we were talking about hair braids and felt his signature was a little sloppy so he wrote an apology beneath it. I feel I must explain this. And yes, hair braids.

Prize #4
A SIGNED ARC of Forever by Maggie Stiefvater.

Prize #5
A SIGNED ARC of The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater.

Prize #6
A SIGNED hardback of Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley.

Are you freaking out? A little at least? Maybe? I hope so.

It's easy. All you really have to do is be a follower of this very blog. Easy, right?
