All the Larks are ecstatic that we have reached the 2,000 followers milestone. We have such fun with the blog and getting to interact with all of you. It's a book lover's dream! Thank you from the bottom of our little Lark hearts. We will keep serving up reviews, features, and giveaways for you!
To thank you all for your support we have TWO giveaways. One is for residents of the US & CA only. The other is International, but requires you be able to accept Kindle or Nook books. Giveaway runs from September 6-30. Winners will be contacted via email on October 1.
Giveaway #1: Open to US and CA residents only - SIGNED by all THREE authors
From acclaimed YA authors Maggie Stiefvater, Tessa Gratton, and Brenna Yovanoff comes The Curiosities: A Collection of Stories.
- A vampire locked in a cage in the basement, for good luck.
- Bad guys, clever girls, and the various reasons why the guys have to stop breathing.
- A world where fires never go out (with references to vanilla ice cream).
These are but a few of the curiosities collected in this volume of short stories by three acclaimed practitioners of paranormal fiction.
But The Curiosities is more than the stories. Since 2008, Maggie, Tessa, and Brenna have posted more than 250 works of short fiction to their website merryfates.com. Their goal was simple: create a space for experimentation and improvisation in their writing—all in public and without a backspace key. In that spirit, The Curiosities includes the stories and each author's comments, critiques, and kudos in the margins. Think of it as a guided tour of the creative processes of three acclaimed authors.
So, are you curious now?
Giveaway #2: International (Kindle or Nook)
We're offering our International readers a chance to snag the eBook version of The Curiosities. You must be able to accept Kindle books (via Amazon) or a Nook book (via Barnes & Noble).
