Share the GHOST Love Giveaway!

Today is a very special day. The day that my first published book officially goes out to meet the world! I can’t count how many times I dreamed of this happening, and now that it’s real… Even for a writer, there are no words to express how amazing that feels! It’s like Christmas and my birthday and the first day of school all mixed together.

To celebrate, I’d like to announce the final GHOST release giveaway!

The idea is simple: You share your love for GHOST with other readers, and I will share more GHOST with you! I’ve got 20 copies to give away, and there’s no chance involved–be one of the first twenty to review and then ask, and you or whomever you pick shall receive. Open to everyone in the world, until October 31st!

How it works:

1. You read GHOST (ARC, library copy, or bought) and love it. (If you don’t love it and want to share that, that’s totally fine, too, it just doesn’t count for the purposes of this giveaway.)

2. You post a review on Amazon.com talking about why you loved it. (Reviews must be at least five sentences long and at least two of those sentences must mention your thoughts on the book, not just plot summary.)

3. You e-mail me and let me know about your review. I’ll ask you an easy question about the book to confirm you did read it.

4. I send a copy of GHOST to a friend or family member, school or library, or book-related charity that you think would enjoy it too! (Or, if you don’t own a finished copy yourself, or would like to give it to someone in person, I can send it to you.)

THIS PART OF THE GIVEAWAY NOW OVER. Already own a copy and want more book love for yourself? I’ve got a bunch of awesome ARCs to give away, too:


(FIRE, WITCH & WIZARD, and LIPS TOUCH are signed)

You could win five, three, or one of those ARCs, plus some GHOST swag. If there are enough entries, I’ll throw in a couple more copies of GHOST as well!

Just post a review of GHOST on Amazon and/or as many of the following sites as you like, and for each you post on, you’ll get an entry. You don’t need to be one of the first 20 people–this is open to anyone who posts one or more reviews of GHOST between now and October 15th. The three winners will be drawn on October 16th. Just comment and let me know which of these site(s) your review can be found on:

BarnesandNoble.com
Borders
Chapters.ca
Powells
GoodReads
Shelfari
LibraryThing

Happy reading!

Since I already have my own copy of Ghost, I don't want to take any of these :) However, I will post a few reviews -- you know how much I love it! I'll keep you posted on where I post them, hehe. I'll start today with GoodReads and Powells.

I would love to do this! Does one have to email you to be one of the first twenty people, or does this comment count? :)

Happy release day, Megan!!!

I'm going to have to edit the entry to clarify--you have to review the book *first* (from an ARC, get it from the library it, borrow, or purchase it), and then I'll send out a book either to someone else you think would like it, or to you (if you don't own the copy you read or it was an ARC and you'd like the final version). Hence, sharing the love! :)

Sorry that wasn't more clear in the first place!

I'd love a copy and would be happy to do a review. Do we request here or send an email, or how does this work?

Yeah, I'm the anonymous above . . . it would help if I logged in before posting. Duh!

I would love to do this too because I'd really like to give my copy to the YA department at my library once I finished it as well as reviewed it.

I pretty much post about every book I read on GoodReads anyway so I'd be glad to do so there and on Amazon at the very least.

Happy Book Day! *confetti*

And I really want a copy of this book. Then I can show it to everyone and say, "I knew her when ..." ^_^

I have found your book availalbe on Overstock.com (I've got a gift card to them).

Would Overstock.com count in your sales numbers? I guess eventually it would, but I'm really not sure about the arcane ways that sales are tallied - and may never be.

I have no idea how Overstock works! I'm pretty sure I get royalties on all copies sold but there may be loopholes I don't know about. In any case, if that's the easiest way for you to pick it up, it's fine with me. :)

I got the copy I won in the mail today!


Ahhhh! So desperate for a copy of FIRE by Kristin Cashore! I want to get my hands on one before I go to Sirens Con and meet her X.x But Sirens Con is October 1-4 and Fire comes out on the 6th *headdesk*
