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.

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.

  1. That's a lot to celebrate! Many congratulations and Happy Birthday.
    If I get picked, I would like DIVERGENT please.

    Thanks for hosting this.

    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!


  3. 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 🙂

    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)

    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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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!



    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.

    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.

  10. 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!

    Yay! That was probably UK/Commonwealth (excluding Canada) rights, so we'll get it in Australia, too! 🙂
