Contest fun

Two contests going on this week, all in an effort to help you survive Valentine’s Day.

First, The Geek Girl’s Guide to Cheerleading is being featured on Free Book Friday. Four copies (signed by both me and Darcy) are up for grabs, along with an interview for your reading enjoyment. (Free Book Friday also has a main/adult site–same deal, simply submit your email address to win. Doesn’t get easier than that.)

Second, we’re hosting fellow 2009 Debs author/Simon Pulse sister Rhonda Stapleton over at the Geek Girl site. Not only do we have a signed copy of Rhonda’s début novel Stupid Cupid, but a totally cute T-shirt from Think Geek. Stop on by to read Rhonda’s interview and check out Stupid Cupid.

Raiders of the Last ARC

This week over at the Geek Girl’s Guide, we’re giving away the very last ARC of The Geek Girl’s Guide to Cheerleading, signed by both of us–sure to be a collector’s item, an one-of-a-kind.

As part of the fun, we’re also launching our What Kind of Geek Are You quiz, based on the characters in the book.

Now, you don’t have to be a teen to:

  • Visit the Geek Girl site
  • Enter the contest
  • Help us spread the word.

Remember, part of “young adult” is adult. It’s a short list of people we don’t want reading our book. Like Stalin. Yeah, him. I think it’s safe to say we don’t want Stalin reading our book.

And at this point in the game, we’re really only looking at awareness, rather than promotion or marketing. How do you know you want to read a book if you’ve never heard of it.

And hey, over here at Writing Wrongs, you get a sneak peek at the results, too. Below is my result. Big surprise, no?

Your result for The What Kind of Geek Are You Test…


You know the difference between a period, a comma, a colon and a semi-colon. You are on a first name basis with all of the characters in Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter and probably the Twilight books too. No one doubts your supremacy in English class, but your ability to diagram relationships or punctuate a social life can be … well, meh. Get your nose out of those books occasionally. Real life can have happy endings too.

See the other results here.

Note of warning: The quiz host site may ask you for demographic information. You do NOT need to provide this to get your result or the code for posting the quiz on your own blog. In fact, I recommend you skip over it.

Now, what are you waiting for? Come on, you know you want to.

Mario Kart Love!

Over on The Geek Girl’s Guide, we have Sam Hart, songwriter and singer of the made-of-awesome Mario Kart Love Song.

Even more awesome? We’re giving away ten (yes, 10!) iTunes downloads of the song. But … you have to visit us over at Geek Girl for your chance to win.

Geek girls, meet world

Note: I’ve made this a sticky post. It will be up for the next week or so. Scroll down to see new entries.

After a fair bit of work, and one epic freak out, we’re doing it. Darcy and I are launching The Geek Girl’s Guide website. As of today, we’re open. Come on by and let us know what you think.

To celebrate, we’re offering a free YA online read and the chance to win a $10.00 Starbucks giftcard (read the story to find out why).


Speechless, a YA short story about what happens when you stay quiet–and what happens when you don’t.

Enter the contest:

Between March 7, 2009 and Wednesday, March 18, 2009, enter to win a $10.00 Starbucks gift card.

Somewhere in one of the six segments of Speechless is a question for you to answer (don’t worry, it’s pretty obvious). Once you find the question, post the answer in our Speechless Guestbook.

We’ll draw one lucky winner from the entrants and post the results on the Speechless main page and The Geek Girl’s Guide on March 19th.

Good luck!
