Uhm okay I sound a little bit like a maniac but don't you just want to have this book on your hands right now? Well, thanks to some crazy people on eBay who sold and bought an ARC of Shiver at the prize of $51, Maggie Stiefvater has decided to throw one our way. She's so cool, isn't she?
For those who haven't heard of Shiver (I'm pretty sure everyone has though), here's the synopsis:
For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again.
Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.
Can't wait? Me too. I love the wolves so much I squealed reading the summary. You can pre order Shiver here, or if you're any lucky, enter Maggie's contest. The details are right below.
Taken from Maggie's LJ:
It's running from May 8-15th. The idea is to convince as many of your LJ or blogger or wordpress friends to post about SHIVER (you don't have to pay them, although it might help). Winner is whoever manages to get as many of their friends to post and comment back here by 8 p.m. EST on the 15th.
And the reward? Okay. Here it is. First of all, you have to get at least 5 friends to blog about it to be eligible. Winner gets:
- a signed ARC of SHIVER
- 4 signed copies of LAMENT
- and for each of the friends that you got to comment, a critique of the first 5 pages of any of their manuscripts
And if any single person manages to get over 50 friends to comment, I'll make it 3 ARCs of SHIVER and 8 copies of LAMENT.
So what are you waiting for? It's time to beg, nag and threaten your friends to blog about this for you (and themselves too) to be able to be one of the winner. Don't forget to go here and tell Maggie about your post and you heard about the contest from me. I love you. I know you love me to too!
Good luck to all of us :D
