Ever dreamed of being a character in a book? Actually LIVING inside the pages? Well, you may just get your chance...
My Super Sweet Street Team, The Flirt Squad, has been in full swing for a couple months now, and we've been having a blast. It's a fun and easy way to earn prizes and get to know other YA Authors! (click here for more info on that.)
And now, just for the month of October, I'm taking it up another notch!
As always, ANYONE who earns 500 points by November 1st will be entered to become a character in my current project, a YA Contemporary Thriller, REARVIEW MIRROR, releasing next December. And I don't just mean your name in the book.... I mean the way you look, the way you act, everything. You can even decide if you are a good guy or a bad guy! =D
Since I'll be drawing the winner's name November 1st, I want to give everyone a chance to be entered who is interested, so I'm changing up the previous rules and adding a few more things this month.
AND, to sweeten the deal even more, I'm giving away a SIGNED Copy of My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century AND a Skype or telephone chat (that may or may not include other YA authors, too!)
**Every Flirt Squad member, regardless of when you joined, will be entered into this contest**
Read on for all the new info. Please read carefully as point values are increasing and new items have been added!
