Our first MegaBook Giveaway - NOW CLOSED

This Contest is Now Closed.
Thanks to all who participated!

(FYI - Check for CONTEST UPDATES - book additions, etc - at the bottom of this post.)

Our first giveaway is finally here! And it's International so everybody's welcome!

Sorry for the delay but we've had some family stuff to deal with and didn't have to time to organize this properly until now. Wow, kudos to all bloggers who have had contests because this is a lot of work.

We tried to have an eclectic group and the good news is that you can have a say in what books we include!

The Initial Twelve Books:
Glass Houses by Rachel Caine (Morganville Vampires#1) Lost Girls by Robert Doherty
Saddled wth Trouble by Michelle Scott
The Wee Free Men by Terry Prachett
Midnight Reflections by Katrina Michaels
The Tales of Beedle the Bard by JK Rowling
Dragon House by John Shors
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
Circle of Souls by Preetham Grandhi
The Shifter by Janice Hardy
The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong (Darkest Powers #1)
Marked by PC Cast

First Place Winner - First Choice of 3 Books
Second Place Winner - Second Choice of 2 Books
Third Place Winner - Third Choice of 2 Books


As we get more followers we will add more winners and books. We have 69 followers as of now but...

- When we hit 75 followers, we'll add 2 more books and 2 more winners (1 book each)

- Then for every additional 25 followers that are added after that, we'll add two more books and 2 more winners.

For instance - at 75 Followers, we'll have First, Second and Third place, plus 2 winners of one book each.

- at 100 Followers, well have First, Second and Third place, plus 4 winners of one book each

- at 125 Followers, we'll have First, Second and Third place, plus 6 winners of one book each

And so on.

The bottom line is that as more people enter, more people have a chance to win more books!

There are lots of ways to rack up entries and thanks to Froggy who gave us the heads up about how to do it you can.

The Rules

The only requirements are:
1) You must fill out the form (required items are noted).

2) You Must Be a Follower (old or new). You can sign-up easily on the right sidebar.

3) Provide your email (on the entry form)

4) Comment on this Post.

Anything will do but if you have a book you'd like us to add to this Giveaway, please tell us in the comments here. No guarantees but we will add one or more books based on the voting, so give us your input! (Just keep in mind it must be something available by the end of this giveaway.

5) Contest ends at midnight PST on November 15, 2009.


1) Most are listed on the ENTRY FORM. They include posting, and various ways to advertise the contest. FYI we're on Twitter as @teensrandw.
You can also receive 2 extra points every time you comment on a future post that relates to one of the books in this Giveaway. It could be a review or author interview. We'll be sure to make a note of it in the post to remind you. But comments will only count if you make them within 5 days of the original posting date. (That negates the possibility of someone going back at the end and commenting madly. Not that anyone would do that, we just have to cover the possibility.)

First, second and third place winners get to choose their books and will have 48 hours to respond before we offer the prize to the next winner. The remaining winners will either get a book pulled randomly out of a grab bag or we may give them a chance to choose depending on how many entries we have. We'll decide at the end of the contest.

So...All you need to do to enter is:

1) Be a Follower

3) Comment on this post (and tell us a book you'd like us to add if you have one)

4) Enter by midnight PST 11/15/09

Remember, it's international so spread the word and GOOD LUCK to ALL!!

We are so happy with our fast and furious response! We made it to 75 followers in 24 hours.

In celebration and appreciate, we will be adding four books to the list and 2 more winners for 1 book each. The top books requested were:
- Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
- Intertwined by Gena Showalter
- My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent
- Sea Glass by Maria V Snyder

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
