Once upon a time, there was a YA Crush Tournament.
Once upon a time, there was a book called SHADE.
Before the Happily Ever After... it's time for you to vote in the YA Heroines Tournament for Aura!!! (Voting lasts for 24-hours, from 12/13/11 to 12/14/11, so hurry!)
I HAVE PRIZES! INCENTIVES, ALL!!! COME ON! LET'S GET THIS ARMY STARTED!
1) An early Merry Christmas... Hey, hey, do you still need to buy a Christmas gift? Have you run out of money? Or are you just feeling a bit voracious and want to just, oh, I don't know, WIN something?
IF YOU VOTE FOR AURA, YOU MIGHT WIN....
THAT'S RIGHT! A $15 BARNES & NOBLE GIFT CARD! I mean, since you're on my blog, I'm pretty sure you like reading. And there's plenty of uses for such a card, no?
So. If Aura wins (and only if Aura wins! Sorry. My money supply is dangerously low), one U.S. only (sorry) winner will receive a $15 Barnes & Noble Gift Card! YAY!!!
2) Muuuusic! Okay, so, I kinda sorta write music and play a bunch of instruments, and I wrote my own version to Forever by Logan Keeley. I'm not going to post the link, 'cause I'm doing something special with it right now, and don't wanna ruin the surprise, ya know? (Shh! Don't tell Jeri! I mean, she knows, but she doesn't know about the surprise, soooo... HEY! I saw you! No, no, don't you dare go tell on me! *holds out plate of cookies* PLEEEEASE?)
Ah. The point: I'll write music to something in SHADE! I know you probably care about my music as much as I care about cabbages, but hey, don't you wanna at least see me fail so you can laugh at me? 'cause I'm giving you permission to do that. Yeah. Okay, not the best thing ever, but it's something, isn't it? So, as long as you vote for Aura, you can make a suggestion to a scene or whatever in SHADE, SHIFT, or SHINE (if you're lucky enough to have read it already and don't mind, ya know, telling me some of the stuff. ;) ) I should compose about! (I say suggestion because I can't guarantee any inspiration.)
*EDITED TO ADD*
AND NOW WE HAVE 3!!!!
3) A FULL SHADE SERIES GIVEAWAY! Jazmin is made of awesome, you guys. She's so awesome that she offered-guess what?!?! A FULL SHADE SERIES GIVEAWAY!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!?! Y'all should go and thank Jazmin for being so awesome! (Note: This is another win-win situation. For you to win, Aura has to win, too, so GO VOTE FOR AURA!!!)
That's... it. I know it's not a lot, but it's only Round 1, and I've got to save some
Oh, and of course, run over to Brooke's blog and tell her she did an amazing job advocating Aura, will ya? Tell her Juli sent you. :)
