And I’m Left…Breathless (with Awesome Swag)!

As you know, I attended the Breathless Reads tour last night at Books of Wonder in NYC.

It. Was. Breathtaking.

I had the absolute best time and got to meet so many amazing people and fellow book bloggers! It was a hilarious night full of fun facts and interesting gems about writing and being an author.

Here are a few of my pictures, even though they are quite candid / far away / blurry because it was PACKED!

The awesome ladies (from left to right): Beth Revis, Brenna Yovanoff, Ally Condie, Andrea Cremer, and Kirsten Miller. Some funny faces being made, but like I said, the pics are candid!

Andrea bent over!

This one is a little blurry as I was allll the way in the back and had to use the zoom.

Wish you were there? No, worries!

I have yummy swag for you to win (open internationally)!

Two winners will get:

Bookmarks (two of each book)!
Posters (one each)!
Buttons (five of these in total from Penguin for promoting AtU, will divide randomly)!

*To Win the Breathless Reads Swag:*
I thought I would have a cover contest to determine the winners of the giveaway!

Breathless Reads Tour Starts Tonight!

I am so excited to be attending the Breathless Reads tour tonight from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Books of Wonder in NYC.

Beginning at 6pm, these five authors will present their novels, take questions from the audience, and sign copies of all of their books. Ages 13 and up.

The line-up of authors is *frexing* awesome and I cannot wait to hear these ladies speak:

ANDREA CREMER (Nightshade)
KIRSTEN MILLER (The Eternal Ones)
BETH REVIS (Across the Universe)
BRENNA YOVANOFF (The Replacement)

Books of Wonder says of the event:

We will host five talented authors of teen fiction as each presents her newest novel.

Ally Condie will introduce Matched, a novel set in a dystopian future where everything is decided by the Officials – where you work, when you die, even who you love – and which finds Cassia making the difficult choice between marrying her “match” or breaking away from the society and pursuing a new boy who she thinks she might love.

Andrea Cremer will share Nightshade, the story of Calla, a young female werewolf, as she struggles with her feelings for a human boy and must decide if abandoning the world she’s always known is worth pursuing love.

Kirsten Miller will introduce The Eternal Ones, a fantasy which follows Haven as she discovers her previous incarnations and struggles to avoid repeating her deadly past.

Beth Revis will delight us with Across the Universe which finds Amy surviving a murder attempt as she is unexpectedly awoken from her cryogenic slumber where she is trapped on a spaceship in transit to a new planet and must discover the murderer before he or she strikes again.

Brenna Yovanoff will entertain us with The Replacement, the story of Mackie, a changeling who replaced a stolen child sixteen years ago, as he reluctantly goes back into his underground world to save his friend’s little sister from being replaced.

This event is free and open to all. Please note that you are welcome to bring one book from home to be signed for each book you purchase on the day of the event. If you have any questions, call (212) 989-3270.
