Due to my overactive trigger finger, I have in my possession two finished copies of Dark Companion. And it would be silly to keep them both, especially given that I had SO MANY ISSUES* with the book. (<--But, hey, you might like it more!) Due to shipping errors, I also have extra copies of Foretold, edited by Carrie Ryan, and The Opposite of Hallelujah, by Anna Jarzub.
If you'd like to be entered in a WINNER TAKES ALL drawing for my extra copies of all three books, you have a few ways to enter:
If you haven't nominated books for the Cybils yet, do. Each nomination will result in an extra entry in the drawing. (In other words, if you nominate one book, you get one entry. If you nominate three, you get three entries. But remember, Cybils rules dictate that you only get one nomination per category, that nominated titles have to fall within the date parameters, and that you can't nominate titles that have already been nominated. See the rest of the rules here.) Let me know in the comments of this post what you nominated, and in what categories. ONLY ELIGIBLE NOMINATIONS WILL COUNT TOWARDS THIS DRAWING.
Never fear, those of you who've already nominated titles: you can enter this drawing in two ways! Tweet and/or blog about A) this drawing, B) the Cybils Award, or C) do all four. Yes, a post about both things will count twice, but you'll need to include links to both. Same goes for Tweets. Post the links in the comments below. Tweeps, don't forget the #cybils hashtag.
ALSO! If you write/Tweet about as-yet-overlooked titles, I'll give you an entry for each title, but you also have to tell us why you think it should be considered for the award. Again, ONLY ELIGIBLE TITLES COUNT, AND ONLY IF IT HASN'T BEEN NOMINATED AT THE TIME YOU DO THE RECOMMENDING. Links in the comments section below.
Yes, you can enter in any combination of the above, as long as you don't double up on anything. (Multiple recommended titles, fine, but not multiple recommendations of the same title. You know what I mean.)
If you don't blog or Tweet, you can recommend titles below (and tell us why you're recommending them), and I'll both give you entries for each one and write a round-up of recommendations.
And just for kicks, DOUBLE ENTRIES FOR ANY RECOMMENDATIONS WRITTEN IN HAIKU FORMAT.
You dig? Good. Let's get the word out about the Cybils, shall we?
In addition to the Kidlitcon (more on that shortly), life and work and so on has continued to be bananas, but it looks like things are settling down again, so I should be back to posting regularly again soon.
So, due to a shipping error, I have in my possession two finished copies of Beyond.
And as much as I love my ghost stories, I really don't need two copies of the same one in the same exact edition.
To anyone planning on calling me out about my doubles of Wodehouse or Aiken or Cruel Shoes: don't even try it. I am completely irrational on the topic.
Anyway, if you'd like to be entered in the drawing for my extra copy of the book, just leave a comment on this post about a title you're hoping will get some Cybils love. However, as in the Cybils nomination process, your entry only counts if no one else has mentioned the title.
