One year ago today, I sat on my couch and wrestled with the idea of starting my very own book blog. I had spent the 6 months beforehand following a whole bunch of great blogs and was reading plenty of books. A few friends thought it was a great idea and encouraged me, so here we are! It is so hard to believe it has been a year already. I have met so many incredible bloggers and readers and I want to thank everyone who follows, comments, lurks, etc. for helping Forever 17 Books be what it is today. xoxo
So for the next few days, I have a few giveaways planned. Some are US only or US/CAN only, BUT there will be one for my International readers as well.
This first giveaway I have been SUPER EXCITED to tell you guys about for months! Seriously, that is how long I’ve been planning it. I don’t really live in the prime location for any type of author signings or events BUT there is something I discovered last year called The Rochester Teen Book Festival. I wish you could have seen my face when I found this gem while feeling hopeless that I would ever get to meet any of these amazing authors of the books I love. (If you want to know more about this event, you can see my posts from the 2012 event HERE and HERE! So I thought this would be the perfect setup for an awesome giveaway!
There are about 30 authors set to attend this event on May 18th 2013. That’s right, I said THIRTY! I stalked the website almost every week, watching the author list grow and grow. So what I am offering TWO lucky US winners is the chance to pick a book by one of the following authors for me to get PERSONALIZED to YOU! Sound good? My biggest problem has been that there are SO MANY authors I want to see and books I want signed but I have to narrow it down a bit for fear I won’t have time for them all. So here is the list you can choose from (sorry for not linking to Goodreads):
*If for some reason I don’t mention a book by the author above but it is reasonably priced, I can get it for you instead of those listed. I just didn’t want to take the time to list everything they’ve written above.
Honestly, there are A LOT more authors I plan to see, but I am terrified I won’t get enough time to see them all so I just listed a few I am definitely making the time for! Lots to choose from, right?
**Reminder: The event is May 18th, so even though the giveaway ends weeks beforehand, the books will not be mailed to the winners until the week after the event.
1. Giveaway is US only! (So sorry International followers but I do have something for you tomorrow!)
2. Must be at least 13 years old to enter.
3. Winner has 48 hours to respond or another winner will be selected.
4. I am not responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged items.
5. Please follow the entry directions in the rafflecopter. (I do check and will delete entries that do not follow the directions. If you have any questions on how to enter, please ask!)
Once again, thank you to all the wonderful readers, bloggers and authors who have made this past year so much fun! Here’s hoping for another great year! Don’t forget to stop back over the next few days for more giveaways. 🙂
