WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT!! Congratulations to Diana who has responded to her email notification and will be receiving this gift.
Today’s Christmas gift giveaway is for one of my ABSOLUTE favorite books of the year (and favorite books, ever). And I do believe, a top favorite for the majority of us, who have read it.
The Sea of Tranquility is simply an amazing book. Eloquent, deep, sweet, dark, painful… wonderful… I could go on and on. One of those perfect reads (check out my review).
And guess what Katja just announced:
“The galleys are ready!!! I’m a little excited. Just a little. :)”
*Squeeeeeeeee* ‘Cause guess what else? Katja and her publisher, Atria (Simon and Schuster) have one to give away for one lucky reader, here! This book hasn’t even been released yet (in print), and won’t be released until June 2013!!! But a limited number of galleys (uncorrected proofs) do exist!
How to enter for a chance to win it? Just leave a comment below, and tomorrow night (Tuesday December 18th, 2012) by 10pm EST, I will randomly select one winner.
The winner will be contacted and will have 48hrs to respond with a mailing address, so if you are picked, do not delay or you will lose your chance. The book will be sent to you directly from the publisher. Sorry for my international readers, this is a open to U.S. residents only (but you’re welcome to comment and join in any time!!).
And while you’re here, if you haven’t already joined me (actually “us”, ’cause we’re a big group now) on Facebook and Twitter, whatcha waiting’ for?!
OH AND!!! —-> Many of you have been asking how to receive a notice each time my blog is updated. Just use this link right here:

Sea of Tranquility is a jewel of a book and I am so happy Katja was able to secure a publisher for this as it deserves a wider audience than an eBook can attract.. I had the privilege of chatting with Katja this year on Twitter about our mutual fan girl obsession with Tiffany Reisz. These two ladies epitomize great writing and I can’t wait to read more from them in 2013!
I would love to win a copy of this. =]
Anyhow, good luck to all and happy holidays!
This book sounds great! I’m adding it to my list!
