Birthday Contest!

How would you like to win a signed copy of Ally Carter's newest release, Heist Society?

It's already a New York Times Best Seller!


I had the opportunity to meet Miss Carter last Thursday, which you can read all about on this post. It was a joy to hear her speak, and I encourage everyone interested to check her website for her schedule.


Since today, Tuesday, February 23, is indeed MY BIRTHDAY, I thought it was only fitting to host a CONTEST for my lovely followers!! (Better to give than to receive, right?!)

Now, this is a Young Adult book, so I'm sure some of you are saying, "Well DARN IT, I don't read young adult chick's books... That's sissy stuff!" (Am I right DL?) You shouldn't feel left out! Not on Kristin's birthday! (Gasp!) So I will also be giving away a $10 Amazon e-mail gift card.



Up for Grabs:

1 signed hardback of Heist Society by Ally Carter

OR

$10 Amazon e-mail Gift Card


Rules:

Must be a follower


To Enter:

Leave a comment specifying if you are entering for the book (US only) or the gift card


Extra Entries:

+1 for guessing my correct age on this birthday!
+1 for blog shout out or sidebar (show me the link)
+1 for finishing this sentence:
Eyes closed tightly, I blew out the candles on the cake, and wished...



Contest ends at midnight this Sunday, February 28th.

Winners announced Monday, March 1st!


Buona Fortuna!

  9. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :) I would love to enter for the book, I need to catch up on my YA reading!

    It's so hard to guess ages. I'm turning 25 in September and people still think I'm a college freshman. My dentist likes to ask what grade I'm in because he knows it annoys me LOL. I will guess ... 28!

    I'm terrible at guessing ages. How about...26?

  16. I've been hunting down giveaways all over the net for Heist Society! I really want to read this. But I just can't pass up the opportunity for the Amazon gift card, so Amazon is my choice.

    I'm a follower.

    Blog sidebar: http://CalicoCritic.blogspot.com

    Eyes closed tightly, I blew out the candles on the cake, and wished for an iPad or world peace... hmmm...priorities...

    Age? Well, maybe it's because I'm 38, but I'm going to skew a bit older than the other guessers and say that you're turning 34.

    Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway, and happy birthday!

  21. Well, I'm already a follower, but I'm hoping for a book, so I'm going to enter.
    Eyes closed tightly, I blew out the candles on the cake, and wished for...the toilet to clean itself.
    As for your age, I really don't know, but I'm guessing 33, 'cause it's not taken yet.
    Happy birthday!

  22. Cool contest! Amazon giftcards are always awesome. :)

    I'm already a follower.

    As for your age, my first guess was 26, though I'm thinking you look younger or older than you actually are, thus the question, so that's probably wrong. I'll stick with it anyway.

    I posted a link in my sidebar: http://abbyannis.blogspot.com/

    Eyes closed tightly, I blew out the candles on the cake and wished my story was out of my head, completely polished and ready to submit.

    I hope you had a fabulous birthday! Thanks for the contest. :D

    Eyes closed tightly, I blew out the candles on the cake and wished for a clean house.

    Please enter me for the gift card.

  24. HAPPY BIRTHDAY :-) I think you are 21 this year!

    I have a link to your blog on my sidebar. It's not about your contest, but you are on my blogroll. :)

    I'd love to be entered in your contest for the YA...

    I hope you get to do something really fun for your birthday. I hope you don't celebrate your 21st the way I did. We went out for "drinks" with friends. There three year old threw up on the table. UGH...I guess I have a special memory though.

  25. I just got back from Disney so I missed your b-day! Happy belated!!

    I just bought the Heist Soceity for my neice since she loves Ally Carter (and because she broke her leg and needed some major reading material)

    I would LOVE to win a copy for myself, though. :)
