Exciting News & Giveaway (Win a Signed Book)!

It's that time again...The Dark Days of Summer Tour is almost here!

Not only will this be my first author event...I was also lucky enough to be asked to be the official live blogger for the stop in my hometown!  What does that mean?  Well, on May 8th, I will attend the event and be able to live tweet to my followers (AKA you guys!) so you'll be able to follow what's happening.  It's not as great as being there in person, but I'd say it's still pretty awesome!

I will also be able to hold an interview with Kiera Cass (The Selection, The Elite), Elizabeth Norris (Unraveling, Unbreakable), Aprilynne Pike (Life After Theft), and Amy Tintera (Reboot) as well as be called on to ask questions during the event.

This is where you guys come in!
Even though you may not be there in person, they want YOU to be heard!  If you have any burning questions for the authors involved, I encourage you to leave them in the comments below!

Giveaway
If you live in the United States or Canada, you may enter to win a signed copy of any book by Kiera Cass, Elizabeth Norris, Aprilynne Pike, or Amy Tintera!  Just fill out the rafflecopter below.  Giveaway ends on May 4th, and winner must get back to me within 24 hours or I will be forced to choose someone else.
