CUPIDS ARROW: Where I declare my ♥ for ARCs! (GIVEAWAY TIME!!)

I've just returned from the coldest, freezingest (it's a word!) most frigid *ss place on the planet, Philadelphia, where I was fortunate enough to attend ALA Midwinter. Besides the fact I was surrounded by oodles of the coolest folks on the planet (LIBRARIANS!), and lots of amazing authors, I was also drowning in a sea of ARCs!!

YA, MG, NA...

THEY. WERE. EVERYWHERE.

And I went a little ...

Well, let's just say the other attendees were lucky that my suitcase exceeded the 50 pound weight limit on the trip out (don't judge. this hair requires a lot of product, yo!), because I would have thrown down to get my paws on every ARC there if I had the Samsonite space to back me up.

I'm not sure what it is about an ARC that makes me crazy...Maybe it's knowing that something might change in the story before the final book comes out. Maybe it's because since the day I read the PM announcement I've been dying to get my hands on that particular story, or maybe it's because I know the rest of the world doesn't have access to it yet and somehow that makes me feel special.

The reason doesn't really matter, all I know is that ARCs are one of the coolest parts of the publication process. And because I'm having so much fun on this wild ride, it seemed like a great opportunity to give away an ARC of my book, SUMMER ON THE SHORT BUS. 



The giveaway only lasts 5 DAYS so don't dilly dally...
