Every Wednesday we'll be shining the spotlight on a contemporary YA title (or two) that we're excited about, or that's been out for awhile and could use a little love! We're kind of tired of traditional author interviews, so we're going to mix it up as much as possible. We'll be featuring book trailers, author videos, and other fun things to entertain you but even more importantly, to get you to pick up the featured book(s)!
Today, however, we're shining the spotlight on us, The Contemps, and an AMAZING contest we have for you!
You have the chance to win every one of our 21 books as they are released throughout the year. Yes, that's right, 21 books! That's practically an entire bookshelf. So awesome! The really cool thing is as the books are released, you'll get them in the mail, so you'll have books coming to you spread throughout the year. It's like a book-of-the-month club, only better, because you don't have to pay for any of the books!
We're calling it the Contemps Challenge, and if YOU accept the challenge, you promise to read at least 18 of the 21 upcoming Contemps books between now and August 15, 2011. One lucky challenger will win the grand prize.
- Participants must be at least 13 years old.
- Send an e-mail by November 15, 2010 with I ACCEPT THE CONTEMPS CHALLENGE in the subject line to: contempscontests(at)gmail(dot)com
- Start reading! Visit our Books page for the complete book list or add books to your "to read" list from our Goodreads page (books that release later in 2011 may not be available on Goodreads yet).
If you'd like to help spread the word about our group and/or the challenge, you can also enter to win one of five special prize packs. See the Get Involved page for more information (under #4 bloggers) on how to spread the word and enter to win!
And now, I leave you with a fun video done by our very own Daisy Whitney, telling the world about the exciting new group of contemporary authors called The Contemps. Maybe you've heard of them?
Please let us know - would you like to see more of us in person, live and talking? Maybe discussing some fun or interesting topics? It's a great way to keep it real, don't ya think?
