Well, not the actual Hex Hall. I can't pick up the school and deliver it to you. THAT would be a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious contest, wouldn't it? Who wouldn't want to win a school of magic?
But no, I meant win HEX HALL the novel.
See, my loved ones have great taste. In my Bday Bookalicious post I mentioned Sara McClung sending me HEX HALL as a gift. Then last night at my bday celebration with my parents I opened my gifts and guess what? Another HEX HALL!
My mom is an avid reader of my blog so she had seen my post and was bummed that she ordered me a duplicate book. But then, being her usual wise and brilliant self, she said, "Maybe you could give it away on your blog." (She knows me so well.)
Notice returning the book was not an option? As an aspiring author I don't believe in returning purchased books--duplicate or not. Help keep bookstores alive. Help keep an author's sales as high as possible. Don't return books! Instead, share them with the world.
I'll be heading to Disney's Coronado Resort tonight to meet up with Megan Rebekah and some other SCBWI attendees.
If you know anything about Disney, you know they're all about the "Disney Magic."
HEX HALL is all about magic.
Hyperion (a Disney publisher) is the pub house for HEX HALL.
Are you seeing the connection?
So, this will be a "HEX HALL contest with a touch of Disney magic."
One lucky winner will win a brand new copy of HEX HALL by Rachel Hawkins AND a prize revolving around Disney and/or magic. I'm not sure what it will be yet, but I'm going to buy it while at Disney World this weekend. (I will update and add a photo after I find it.)
Since giving away this book was my mom's idea, and because she LOVES Disney (I'm not exaggerating--my parents house is filled with collectibles AND my mom works at one of the resorts part time), SHE will be choosing the winner. (Cool thing is I didn't tell her yet, so when she reads my blog today she'll be surprised. Surprise, Mom! You're choosing the winner!) :)
Here's how you enter:
Leave a comment that will make my mom choose YOU.
It's that simple. Beg, be clever and creative, tell her your best Disney Magic story, whatever. Whichever comment she loves the most will win the prizes. (Oh, and of course, you have to be a supporter, aka follower, to qualify.)
You overseas people--especially my beloved Brits and Aussies--are welcome to enter too. I'm happy to ship internationally.)
My mom will read all the comments (like she always does) and choose a winner Sunday night.
You have all weekend to win her over.
You can enter multiple times (most of you are writers; it's a cruel law of nature that we usually think of something better to write AFTER we hit the send button).
As you can see from this drinking-together-on-a-Disney-cruise pic, my mom is very hip. She has a great sense of humor too, so no need to be all stuffy and formal with entries. Don't hold back!
Good luck to all who enter!
Winner will be announced Monday morning.
(P.S. My mom's name is Sandy in case you want to personalize your entries.)
