YA2U--or Why Authors Deserve Some Drumrolls

Now this. This is something awesome. Something absolutely sparkling and spectacular and also I'll just stop rambling now and let you get on to it.

Have you ever wished that a big YA book tour would make a stop in your hometown? Well, here's your chance for that wish to come true! YA2U is a program that features five award-winning and best-selling authors who are holding a contest to see what city they should visit in an exclusive tour stop!

The authors are collecting votes from January 1 to February 15, and any city in the continental US or any Canadian city that has an international airport can win an exclusive visit from all five authors, including an author panel and book signing! Entering is super easy--and if you help spread the word about the contest, you can also enter win a signed copy of all of their books (TEN signed books in total!)--and the book contest is open internationally!

The authors in the program are:

And they want to have an event in your home town! To participate, just got to the YA2U website and let them know what city you want them to come to. And while you're there, help spread the word about the contest and you can be entered to win all of their books--TEN signed books in total! 

Here's why the YA2U Team should come to MY hometown!

Look. I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE Beth Revis and Marie Lu and Victoria Schwab. I'll admit that I haven't read anything by Marissa Meyer (I met her once and almost faceplanted at her awesomeness. No joke. Just ask my friend who was watching on, completely mortified at my flailing, flabbergasted self) and Megan Shepherd yet, but I'm really excited to. I, however, happen to live in the Los Angeles area.


Which is not necessarily true, but it does have a point. But here's the thing: California is the most populated state. If there's an event here, more people would be able to go to it. Besides, then, if you come over here for vacation as a grand scheme for the event, then you can also visit a plethora of cool places like Disneyland, Legoland, Hollywood, Universal Studios, etc., that you can't visit in the middle of, say, Montana (though nothing again Montana. Y'all have Hanklerfish). And my local indie bookstore, Mrs. Nelson's Toy and Book Shop, has some of the friendliest and most knowledgeable employees/friends I've ever met. I think you'd like them a lot, and I think this whole shebang would be really awesome if you voted for LA.

Why should the YA2U Team come to your hometown? Why not join in the fun today and share with others about this program and your hometown. The more votes your town gets, the closer you are to having your very own personal tour stop! Vote for YOUR town here!

And if you help spread the word, you can also participate in the book giveaway. Tell them that you learned about YA2U from me and we both get extra entries in the contest!

  1. I heard about this but since I live in AZ, a state with few bloggers, I figured we didn't stand a chance against states like Texas, California, and Washington with so many bloggers! I wish you the best of luck that they come to you! :)


Please do leave a response! I love hearing back from you all! :) I respond to comments here on the blog, so if you'd like me to reply to you via e-mail, just state so in your comment. Also, this is an award-free zone. I love and superbly appreciate all of your generous thoughts; I'm just terrible at returning your kind favor.

Thanks for stopping by!
