My first contest!! And of course I'm giving away books.

2010 was a good year for me.

I wrote The Other Life. I found amazing writer friends on Absolute Write. I signed with my fabulous agent Julia Churchill of Greenhouse Literary Agency. I got a book deal! I found two wonderful crit partners (Thanks Shari and Tracy!). So many good things happened and that's why I want to give 2010 the farewell that it deserves.

And there's no better way to do that than a contest!

There'll be two winners. Each winner can choose one of the following books. (in case a winner has them all, then I'm sure we'll find another book for you!)

The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

Matched by Ally Condie

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly

The contest is open internationally. Contest ends December 31st. Winners will be announced on January 1st, 2011.
