Goodreads Choice Awards Giveaway Winners!

I ended up getting to the giveaway earlier than I thought, so I'm going to put this post up now instead of tomorrow. Thank you to everyone who entered! There were over 1,000 entries, which is amazing, particularly in just three days total, and so many lovely congratulatory messages among them. I wish I could give you all books, seriously.

I just e-mailed the winners, and there were six of them instead of five because I generated an extra random number by mistake and then said, to hell with it, I'll just give away six. (Also, Six of "Four and Six," you know.) So if you are not a compulsive e-mail checker like I am, go check the e-mail you used to send in your entry to see if you were one of them.

To everyone else, I give this consolation prize, which is a picture of a kitten that recently melted my brain with cute (thank you, cuteoverload.com, for many such brain melting incidents):

Thank you again for voting, Initiates of Goodreads! And, more importantly, for reading the books.

Goodreads Choice Awards Giveaway!


I was SO excited to hear the Goodreads Choice Awards news earlier this week (but had to contain my excitement until I turned in my draft, which I did at 2AM this morning, YESSSS.) For those of you who don't know what I'm referring to: Insurgent won for best YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy, which is amazing, given that it was up against some of my favorite books from 2012! And I won for Best Goodreads Author, which is...well, also amazing, but mostly very touching. I'm so glad that I've been able to connect with you guys even over this strange interface of the Internet, and that you've been able to connect with me. (You can check out the other wonderful winners here.)



To celebrate my amazing readers (since it's your votes that made this awesomeness happen), I was desperate to give you SOMETHING from book 3, even if it's just a sentence, but since it's so early in the process still, I'm not able to do that. (Siiiiiiigh.) However, what I can do is give away some SIGNED BOOKS.

I'm going to be giving away five signed copies of the Insurgent Collector's Edition (I'll write you a little note, too), which is beautiful and shiny and also includes cool things like a poster and faction tattoos and Free Four. If you're interested in getting one of those, here are the giveaway rules, a necessary evil:

*Enter by Monday, December 10th at 12PM US central time.
*Entries should be sent to VRGiveaway@mail.com. Please put your name/alias in the email title and check back on Tuesday, December 11th to see if you won. (I'll also e-mail you.)
*Unfortunately, this giveaway is not international. (I hope to have an international giveaway sometime in the future, but I'm not able to right now.)
*One entry per person, please!
*Special Internet bonus points if you were someone who voted!
*If you end up winning but you already have the Collector's Edition, let me know and we can work something out.

I think that's it!

Thank you so much for reading and voting. You guys are awesome.
