Welcome YAmazing Racers!
THE RACE IS NOW OFFICIALLY OVER – THANKS FOR RACING!
Thanks for stopping by. If you’ve made it here by accident, why don’t you play with us anyway? We’ve got lots of prizes and FUN to be had! See below for the full info and where you’ll find the starting line: http://apocalypsies.blogspot.com
Mark your calendars: starting Monday, October 22, 12:00pm Eastern, the Apocalypsies will be hosting the third annual (not really) YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes – a week-long blog race featuring over 50 debut authors! Go to THE APOCALYPSIES any time between October 22-29 at noon to join the race and learn more about the hottest new books debuting in 2012 – AND earn a chance to win one of several prize packs made up of signed ARCs and finished copies, gift certificates, bookmarks, jewelry, swag, and more!
Okay, so you’re in? Right. So we need to start with some info about my book, so here it is:
After she’s hit by lightning at a wedding, twelve-year-old Lilah Bloom develops a new talent: she can hear dead people. Among them, there’s her over-opinionated Bubby Dora; a prissy fashion designer; and an approval-seeking clown who livens up a séance. With Bubby Dora leading the way, these and other sweetly imperfect ghosts haunt Lilah through seventh grade, and help her face her one big fear: talking to—and possibly going to the seventh-grade dance with—her crush, Andrew Finkel.
Okay, got what you need from me? Then head over to see Diana Renn:
BUT WAIT! BEFORE YOU GO – THERE’S MORE!
If you go over to my Facebook Page and give it a like and tell me that you came from the YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes, I will throw your name into a hat and at the end of the race, I’ll draw for a copy of my book. If I get over 50 new likes, I’ll also draw for a copy of Gina Damico’s hilarious book CROAK, so make sure you tell your friends! And if you’re already a liker of my page, don’t worry – just let me know on the page that you are participating in the YAmazing race and you’ll be entered!
What are you waiting for? GO!!!
Welcome (or welcome back!) to the monthly Street Team check in.
CONGRATULATIONS to Carina, winner of the October STREET TEAM prize pack!
I’m going to be suspending the Street Team prize check-ins for now, because something WAY COOL is coming – stay tuned! But don’t feel like you can’t still spread the word about SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE! I still appreciate your efforts!
CONGRATULATIONS to Disincentive, winner of the September STREET TEAM prize pack!
Okay, so that important business is out of the way, so let’s kick off the October Street Team EXTRAVAGANZA. You remember the deal, right? You get to be a member of my street team by telling the world about my book, SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE.
It’s really easy – and there are prizes! WHAT PRIZES? You ask?
Tricks the sock monkey
and a paperback copy of HOW THEY CROAKED – a really entertaining, if macabre book about how famous people…er…croaked.
So, if you haven’t joined up yet, here’s how:
To be a member of the SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE Street Team, all you need to do is spread the word about, well, SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE. How? you ask? EASY: You can tweet about it, do a Facebook note about it, like my page on Facebook, write about it on your blog, make a video about it, review it on Goodreads, send an e-mail to your friends telling them to check out the book, ask your library or local bookstore to carry the book, whatever! I just need you to be my people on the street, getting the word out.
Sound easy? Yeah, it is. Every month, I’ll do a draw for cool stuff: things like signed books (mine and by other cool people), Street Team SWAG, gift certificates etc. So to enter, all you need to do is spread the word and then come back and add a comment telling me what you did (and a link if it’s a video or post) and you’ll be entered in this month’s draw.
If you send an e-mail to your friends, telling them about SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE, you can count an extra entry for each one of your friends that you tell-just make sure you copy me on the message: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each thing you do will get you one entry (other than the tell-a-friend thing above), but please try to put everything in one comment, to save me having to scroll through what I’m sure will be thousands of comments. Also, don’t forget to include your e-mail address, in case you win! Be creative (and legal, of course) and have fun! Ready? GO!
As always, if you’re super-lazy like me, you can just grab this:
