Hello, all! I just wanted to update you on a few things in The Selection world.
First, yes, back from Brazil, which was awesome. Hoping to find time to make a video, but not sure it'll happen! Maybe a blog post will be the best I can do. And France is just around the corner... like... this time next week holy poop!
Second, if you didn't know, there's a fanart contest happening on tumblr! Hop on over and make your best art. Prizes include signed books, a tumblr follow from me, and a one-on-one chat.
And three, there will be more to come from other places, but, for now, here is your first deleted scene from The Elite! You can find it under the bonus content section for The Elite listed on my BOOKS page. Enjoy!
Help me raise money for an amazing organization and you could win a copy of The Elite with notes hand written by me. Let's do this! You have until November 8, 2013 to donate, so click here to get started!
THE ELITE has been out about 6 whole weeks now. And I’m shocked by how well some of you already know the details of the book! But my question to you is this: Could you identify a detail from an outside source? Specifically… a song?
Next Monday, June 10 at 4PM EST, I will be playing a little game with you guys via twitter. I will share (probably) a youtube link to one of the songs on the playlist for THE ELITE. Your job will be to respond with the proper chapter/scene. For instance, if the song was what I imagined in the background of Maxon and America in the garden stargazing, you would answer “Chapter 1, Maxon & America’s date!”… or something like that.
In return for your skillz, I will be giving you some pretty exclusive things including foreign editions of THE SELECTION, international swag, and probably some random stuff I have sitting around my office because that’s how I roll. Long story short: you can’t get this stuff anywhere else.
RULES! First, sorry, this is open to US residents only. But, yes, if you have a mailing address in the States, you can participate. Second, this will take place ONLY on twitter. So even if you posted a complete list of answers on facebook, you don’t win. Sorry. Three, you are only allowed to win ONE of the scene/song matchup prizes. And four, the winner will be the first correct tweet replied to me. No hashtag required, no runner ups. As to how many chance you’ll have… I don’t know. I’m thinking of doing 5 songs at the moment, but I haven’t finalized them, so we’ll see.
If you have any questions, feel free to tweet them at me, and I’ll retweet answers as necessary. I’m really excited about this, guys. I know you all know how important music is to me when I work, so I’m hoping this will be a fun way to start sharing the playlist and give you some well-earned goodies.
First, I just want you all to know I'll be haning out a BEA on Thursday, May 26th, and I'll be participating in the author speed dating at the Book Blogger Con on Friday, May 27th. There's more info on the events page, so check it out, and I hope I see some of you there.
Second, if you'd like to maybe win a galley of The Selection, please consider giving to my friends Rob & Jess.
Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of updates, but being a new mom is harder than you'd think! Congrats to Ashley, winner of the I Want Your Name contest for making an awesome video and getting her name into my next bit of fiction. Hopefully now that life is starting to get normal again, I'll be able to post things more often. Thanks for being patient! Oh, and here's Ashley's video:
