The "I'm NOT Going to BEA" #Contest

Many of you know I was psyched to go back to New York for Book Expo of America this year. Well, unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be. I've faced a few health issues and ended up having to cancel my trip. And I've been very, very sad about it.

But....rather than mope around the house, I've decided to harness my sadness and do something good with it...something that in it's own way will make me happy, because it will make someone else happy.

I have a lot of wonderful books here, and I've been holding regular giveaways from my bookshelves, but I've decided to do One Big Giveaway to make all of us who can't get to BEA feel a little bit better. There are three rules to this Contest of Awesomeness:

1. This contest is only open to those who are not able to attend BEA 2011.
2. Unfortunately I must keep this to people with a U.S. mailing address only because of mailing costs. If you can convince somebody to make media mail worldwide or otherwise cheapen the mailing rates, I would LOVE to open all of my contests up internationally.
3. The chances to win are limitless! All you have to do is let me know where you have spread the word about this contest, and you will get entries for everything you do, even if it's just telling your best friend about it! (If you use @denisejaden when tweeting, I'll be sure to count your entries there.)

As always, you'll get extra points for following this blog, following me on Twitter, GoodReads, and liking my Facebook Page.

Here's a tweet to get you started (go paste it into Twitter right now.)

Not going to #BEA11? Don't be sad! @denisejaden is having a Contest of Awesomeness just for you! http://www.denisejaden.com/Blog.html

Easy, right? And now for the GRAND PRIZE!!!

One lucky winner will receive an entire box of awesome books! Many are brand-new releases. I'll be drawing the winner's name sometime during BEA, so make sure you leave a way to get a hold of you in the comments or check back during that week.

Here is the bounty of books...



BETWEEN HERE AND FOREVER by Elizabeth Scott
ACROSS THE UNIVERSE by Beth Revis
INVINCIBLE SUMMER by Hannah Moskowitz
REVOLUTION by Jennifer Donnelly
BEAUTIFUL by Amy Reed
THE SECRET YEAR by Jennifer R. Hubbard
INFINITE DAYS by Rebecca Maizel
THE SUMMER OF FIRSTS AND LASTS by Terra Elan McVoy
ENDLESS SUMMER by Jennifer Echols

Now, go forth and spread the word...a little happiness and excitement for the rest of us this May, including some awesome summer books and three books edited by my amazingly talented editor! Best of luck to all of you!!!
