Contests, General, The Elite, The Selection
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.
Book News, The One, The Selection
Okay, so this may not* be the cover art for the final book in The Selection Trilogy, but I do have some real news for you guys. We have a release date!
THE ONE will be out May 6, 2014.
Now, I know what you're thinking: KIERA, THAT'S MORE THAN A YEAR AFTER THE ELITE. Yes, that is true. Congrats on mastering your calendar! But I promise there will be plenty of goodies between now and then to keep you excited. And sometimes these things change, and if this happens to, I'll make sure you know ASAP!
*is totally not.
The Prince, The Selection
So you want to read a bit of The Elite? Well, I don’t blame you. Because it’s awesome. And the lovely people over at HarperTeen agree! So, here’s the deal, if you buy the paperback version of The Selection (due out March 26th), it comes with the first chapter of The Elite! I know, right? But it gets even better.
Maybe you already have copy of The Selection and would like to read even MORE of The Elite EARLIER than March 26th. Well, cool. If you order my e-novella, The Prince (due out March 5th), it comes with the first TWO chapters.
A reminder! The Prince will only be available in e-format. If you do not have an e-reader, you can still access it on a computer or with something like a Kindle or Nook app on your phone or tablet.
Oh, and can we just talk for a minute about the summary for The Prince? Just deal with this for a second:
Before thirty-five girls were chosen to compete in the Selection . . .
Before Aspen broke America's heart . . .
There was another girl in Prince Maxon's life. . .
Don't miss this thrilling 128-page original novella set in the world of the New York Times bestselling novel The Selection. Also features a teaser to The Elite, Kiera Cass's hotly anticipated sequel to The Selection.
To summarize: In less than two months, you will be able to have a portion of The Selection told through Maxon’s POV via The Prince AND read the first two chapters of The Elite. Pre-order, baby! Pre-order!

I know I said we had to wait a while, but I was given special permission to show this to you guys early. I hope you love it as much as I do!
