In the meantime! Here's an article on my love of geeks which I wrote for the delightful SisterSpooky's Geek Week. Check it out - I'm giving hinty hints about The Night Itself which you may enjoy. I also wrote a post on Jack, the lesbian character in The Night Itself, for The Gay YA blog, in which I talk about you guys and how you helped me to decide how Jack should be written. That'll be up sometime today, so if you don't see it right now just check back later.
And now onto the most important part of this blog! It's time to pick the winner for the very last Mega Exclusive The Night Itself Giveaway, who will recieve all of this:
- A glossy full-colour The Night Itself Poster
- A spiral bound, lined, The Night Itself notebook
- The Night Itself fridge magnets/bookmarks
- Double-sided The Night Itself postcard/bookmarks
- AN ADVANCED READER'S PROOF COPY OF THE NIGHT ITSELF
So! Who out of all the plucky entrants will win today's feast of awesome? Let's ask Random Number Org, shall we?
Entry number 7 wins the day! And that just happens to be...
***LUNA'S LITTLE LIBRARY!***
Congratulations, Luna! Drop me a line at z d marriott (AT) g mail (DOT) com and let me know the postal address where you would like your haul delivered, and also which book you'd like me to sign for you.
To everyone else who entered this giveaway - and each of the others - helping to spread the buzz and be part of my excitement about this book, thank you. I've appreciated everything that you've done so much, especially the gorgeous fanart, which sincerely moved and humbled me. Not everyone could win, and I'm sorry that some of you are probably feeling a bit let down right now. But don't worry. There will be more giveaways (there are always more giveaways on this blog) and there will be more chances to win. And The Night Itself will be out in just one month now, so you'll be able to get your hands on it, one way or another, mind-blowingly soon :)
In the meantime, take care of yourselves, read good books, listen to good music, and be happy. I'll see you the week after next!
