A Darkness Strange and Lovely giveaway!

You could win one of THESE babies. Oh yeah, you know you want it.

I wish I could say, “Hey! I’m back to blogging, guys!”

But I can’t. Though my  internet-via-phone-only pet-sitting stint was VERY productive for book 3, it was not quite as productive as I’d hoped. Primarily because I ALWAYS overestimate how quickly I can work. Sigh.

Anyway, I am super, SUPER close to finishing up book 3. I wrote the The End yesterday…after four days of nonstop sobbing.

I have seriously never cried so much in my entire life.


My eyes have also never been this puffy. Nor my wrists so sore.

My goal is to now revise these final chapters into a Real Coherent Ending and then turn this sucker in to my editor. So, perhaps I’ll be back to blogging in 2 weeks?

ANYWAY, the point of this post was not to bemoan how deeply I am grieving or how close I am to finishing book 3, but rather to say

It’s my birthday!

Toss the confetti!

I turn 29-years-old today. Frightening. Next year is that dauntingly huge 30. This is my last year as a cool twenty-something! WAAAAAH.

But on the bright side of aging, I am doing a super epic giveaway!

A signed ARC of A Darkness Strange and Lovely!

There are very few of these in the world yet, since the book doesn’t release for 5 more months. But I am just dying to send this little baby into the world, so…I will! It has become something of a birthday tradition of mine to giveaway ARCs much too early.

Now, if you want to enter the giveaway, you can do it either HERE or over on Pub(lishing) Crawl. The only “advantage” to doing it on Pub Crawl is that there’s a fun quiz to go along with the giveaway. 😉

If you opt to enter the giveaway here, then please leave a comment telling me one of YOUR birthday traditions and then fill out the Rafflecopter form below! Huzzah! Oh, and the giveaway is open internationally! ♥
