Birthday Celebration Contest
It’s my birthday! This has been a CRAMAZING year. I mean: I dyed my hair pink, got a tattoo, and sold a trilogy!
In fact, I found out yesterday that The Cahill Witch Chronicles have now sold in the UK to Penguin UK!
Also, I am officially part-time at my day job! I’m only working Tuesday-Thursday.
It’s crazy to think that by next year, I’ll be able to hold a book I wrote in my hands. I’ll be able to go into bookstores and see BORN WICKED on the shelf. I’ll have finished writing the sequel. I’ll be a full-time writer. Who knows what else? A year ago I didn’t even dream this big.
You know who else’s birthday it is today?
SHIFT by Jeri Smith-Ready.
DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth.
THE SUMMER OF FIRST & LASTS by Terra McVoy.
MOONGLASS by Jessi Kirby.
Want to help me celebrate? Leave a comment telling me which of these books you’d like to read (or any other book that’s released today; I’m sure I’ve missed some). I’ll pick a winner at midnight and send you the book of your choice. This one’s open internationally in honor of the UK deal.
That's a lot to celebrate! Many congratulations and Happy Birthday.
If I get picked, I would like DIVERGENT please.
Thanks for hosting this.
Thank you! I can't wait to read DIVERGENT myself.
I'd like to read any of them or all of them! I haven't had time to read for pleasure in 2 years and can't wait to catch up!
I'll have to load you up with books when you come visit in May!
I'm really interested in Divergent. Not that I should read so much dystopian lit, but I can't help it!
I can't wait to read DIVERGENT! All the buzz has been amazing.
Happy birthday Jessica! and congrats on the UK deal!
I'm so excited about Divergent, I've heard such good things.
Happy Birthday Jess! What a year, indeed. And congrats on the UK deal. That is so, SO fantastic. I'm incredibly happy for you 🙂
DIVERGENT was fantastic (I was fortunate enough to read an ARC of this), and while all the other books sound great as well, I'm not going to enter this contest. I just ordered a bunch of books myself and my TBR list is growing at an alarming rate. I need to catch up.
Congrats again. Can't wait to see you reflect on things again a year from now 🙂
Thanks, Erin! I know what you mean about the towering TBR pile. And yet i can't. stop. buying. books!
I'm glad writing has kicked off so well for you!
Divergent, I want it so amazingly bad!
Thank you! I can't wait to read DIVERGENT myself!
Happy Birthday! I'd love to read Divergent!
Happy, Happy Birthday, Jessie! All of these books sound great, especially 'Divergent' and 'Moonglass'!
Thanks, Liz! You can borrow my copies if you want! I'm reading MOONGLASS right now.
Happy Birthday! Lots of great books released today but I'd have to pick Divergent.
Thank you! I can't believe how many fantastic books were released yesterday!
It has been quite a year for you. Happy Birthday and celebrate it to the fullest, as you've got a lot to be happy and celebrate about! Congrats, Jessie. Very proud and very excited. And how cool to recognize other "births!" (Moonglass)
Thanks so much, Sasha! *hugs*
Hooray!!! Congrats on the UK sale!!! Lordy you will need to add a foreign releases page to your site so we can keep track of all of them.
I would like Divergent please!
Thanks, Robin! Ooh, that's a good idea about listing all the foreign rights somewhere eventually. I can't wait to see all the covers!
Happy Birthday! May babies really are the best, no?
The Summer of Firsts and Lasts is tickling my fancy the mostest, but I'd read any of them, really. Because generally, I read anything. 🙂
Hope your birthday rocks!
May babies are awesome. 😉 Hope you have a fabulous birthday yourself!
Happy Birthday!!! Hope you have an amazing day <3 And huge congrats on your UK deal, Born Wicked sounds fantastic and I so can't wait to get my hands on a copy! 2012 – please hurry!
Some awesome books out today – I LOVED Divergent. Incredible novel. I would love to win a copy of Shift!
Thanks so much, Brodie! I just ordered SHIFT myself. I loved SHADE, and Jeri is one of the nicest authors I've met!
HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESSICA!!
I cannot WAIT to read BORN WICKED. EEP EEP! *takes bite of donut*
These all look splendid. The Summer of Firsts and Lasts and Moonglass are my top two.
Again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Hey, guess what? You win my contest! Which book would you like very most?
*spazzes* *jumps up and down* *runs around room* MOONGLASS, please and thank you. I AM SO STOKED.
Happy birthday and congrats on an amazing year, Jessica.
I've heard many good things about Divergent so I'd love to go with that.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESS! What a great year you've had. SO excited to read your book. YOUR BOOK! THAT YOU WROTE! AND SOLD TO THE UK!! Woohoo!
Thank you! I know! It's all so crazy! Today I got to see a cover and I still can't believe that's my name on it!
Congrats on your book! I can't wait to read it! I have heard great things about all the books, but the one I'm most excited to read is Divergent. My local store doesn't have any of these books! Ugh!
Thanks so much, Andrea! I can't wait to read DIVERGENT too!
Yay! That was probably UK/Commonwealth (excluding Canada) rights, so we'll get it in Australia, too! 🙂
Yay! I really hope you like it! 😀 I wonder if it'll have a different UK cover? I can't wait to see all the different editions!
