Free Stuff!

I can't believe I'm announcing the two month count down till the release of

A very long twenty months ago, I got the call it had sold
... Sept 2011 seemed eons away (is that how you spell eons? eeons?)

But here we close.

And to celebrate, I'm giving tons of cool free stuff to you .. my blogging co-horts.

Whats up for grabs this month?

An advance ordered copy of WITH A NAME LIKE LOVE

a $15 Amazon gift card to buy that book you've been dying to read

a Life is Good baseball cap
some cool Life is Good stickers

and some bookmarks and candy that go along with the novel.

Maybe you're, Tess - but how do I enter?


Just be a follower on this blog and leave a comment.
I will choose a random winner next Sunday night and post it on Monday.

Question for you: What book might you get with your Amazon gift card should you win? What have you been itching to read (well, besides my novel ..hee hee)

Only two months! Holy cow! So exciting!

If I were to get the gift card I'd either buy Die for Me by Amy Plum for myself or Paranormalcy by Kiersten White for my sister-in-law. (It's her birthday this month. I'll probably still buy it for her but you asked. :) )

Danyelle said...

So excited for you, Tess! :) I don't know if you're doing a blog tour or anything, but I'd be more than happy to host you on my blog to help get the word out. :D

Lynda Mullaly Hunt said...

Congratulations, Tess! I am waiting for your book! Can't wait to dive in! ;-)

Martin Willoughby said...

Woohoo. It's the moment we all dream of, so enjoy the ride.

I would probably get Terminal World by Alastair Reynolds with my $15...assuming the prize is available to us Brits. :)

MG Higgins said...

Way, way exciting. I want to win your book so I can read it now. I'm awaiting Maggie S's Forever, so that's the book I'd probably buy with the gift card. (You must be tired of hearing "congratulations," but consider yourself congratulated again.)

There's so many books that I need to buy I don't think I can choose just one. But my main one is to pre-order John Green's The Fault In Our Stars. Eep. Can't wait for that.


Janice said...

Wahoo! 2 months.

Michelle Davidson Argyle said...

Oooo, I want to win something! If I won your book I'd donate it to my mom's school library because I plan on buying your book at your launch and have it signed. I'm SO excited about everything for you!!! :)

Hmm, what book would I buy? Probably my friend Jessica's book, String Bridge, that's coming out in November. :)

Mary Aalgaard said...

As a previous winner, I'd like to say the treasures are terrific, and I'm x-ing off the days on my calendar until my copy arrives. Truly, I'm that excited. I'm enjoying all the goodies, although, I had to share the sweets. The boys saw them and took a sample. Tip #1 for living in a large family: Never leave your candy unattended.

superpaige said...

Oooooh, it's so exciting!!!!!! I would buy some books for my kindle. Even though it will never replace actual books, I've been reading a lot more since I can always have a book with me.

Amy said...

I think I would get Blood Red Road, I actually almost bought it today.

I just recently heard about your book and I love the cover so much and I'm excited to read it. ;)

Tess said...

Thanks for weighing in, pals -- some good book suggestions here!

dellgirl said...

Wow, Tess! I'm so excited for you I can hardly stand it! This is like waiting the arrival of a new baby...happily counting the days. I can't even think of a book I'm itching to read, and I know there are at least two. Better get my thinking cap on.

Corey Schwartz said...

Wow! How exciting, Tess! I can't wait to read it.

Laurel Garver said...

Your book's birthday is just a day before mine! So cool!

As for your question, I've been eager to read _Save the Cat_, a resource on plot and structure so many of my bloggy friends rave about.

Giada M said...

I can't wait to get my hands on WITH A NAME LIKE LOVE. Please enter me in the giveaway only if it is international. Thank you! :D

Another book I can't wait to read is Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu.
I'm a blog follower.

Only two months!!! Soooo exciting! And it will probably be a quick two months what with summer and all.
What would I buy with a gift card? I'm not sure. I pre-ordered WITH A NAME LIKE LOVE, so I'd pick another novel from my list of books to read.

So happy for you! : )

Windy Aphayrath said...

I can't believe how quickly time flies! So excited for you! As for a book I'd buy with the gift card? OMG, I don't even know ... there's WITH A NAME LIKE LOVE, and then there's about a million others on my NEED TO BUY list too ...

A.L. Sonnichsen said...

Fun contest!

I think I'd love my own copy of OUT OF THE DUST, so that's what I'd use my $15 for.

And I can't wait to read your book, so I really hope I win your ARC! ;)


Crystal said...

Hi, Tess! Oh. My. Gosh! I can't believe your big day will soon be here in 2 months! Where has the time gone? I LOVE all the items you have for giveaway . . . you are so thoughtful! If I had to decide on what to buy with the Amazon gift card, WITH A NAME LIKE LOVE would be at the top of my list (since I'm dying to read it!), or either THE HELP by K. Stockett or THE PREACHER'S BRIDE by debut author & fellow blogger Jody Hedlund. Another choice would be a craft book like THE ART OF WAR FOR WRITERS by James Scott Bell. *Crossing my fingers to win* :)

OMGoodness, Tess! I have to have one of those bookmarks! They are wonderful! I preordered a copy of LOVE last week. I can't wait to read it! I know it will be a beautifully written story.

Lisa said...

hopefully its not too late to enter. I'm way behind on my blog reading. I have no idea what I would buy since I haven't been in a bookstore for a long time - probably a children's book. Can't wait to read your book.
