Contest Monday: Win a Copy of Shiver

So I hope you're enjoying New Features week, even though it hasn't been too new yet. :-) But here's the Contest Monday post I've been hinting at for a few days. You are playing for a brand new ARC of Maggie Stiefvater's highly anticpated new release, Shiver.

For those of you who don't know, an ARC of Shiver was recently sold on eBay for over $70! I don't know who would want to get ahold of it so much they couldn't wait until it's release on August 1st, but here's your chance to pick up this book for absolutely free. That will make that winning bidder look silly!

About the Book (From Back Cover): "For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again.

Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever."

How to Enter: To enter the contest, simply leave a comment on this post. Or, if you can't leave a comment, send an email to shadyglade (AT) mail (DOT) com with the subject line "Shiver Contest" and include your name, your email address, and the correct subject line.

How to earn Extra Entries:

  1. Post about the contest on your blog or website. +1 for a sidebar post, +2 for a regular post. Post a link in your comment.
  2. Become a follower of this Blog (post a comment to let me know).
  3. Come up with and post your own Contest Monday (post a comment with the link).

Rules: The contest is open until Monday, June 15th, 2009. You have two weeks to enter this one! Open to US and Canada residents, even if you've won a contest in the past. The winner will be chosen by a random number generator. One free entry per person allowed. See above for instructions to earn extra contest entries. Rules about claiming prizes can be found here. Questions? Post a comment or email and ask.

Good luck to everyone! I'll announce the contest winner of this book on Tuesday, June 16th. Look for an announcement tomorrow for past week's winner, and maybe another chance to win? You'll have to see tomorrow to find out...

As mentioned before, Shiver won't be available until August 1st, but you can pre-order your copy. I think you'll want to do so:

Shiver sounds like an interesting novel. There have been several I have read recently about wolves and fantasy. One was The Wood Wife, a great fantasy book. Wolves and werewolves have been around literature for generations. I can't wait to see what they do with it this time and hope it is something new.
