1 Month until DEFY giveaway! (+ some AWESOME news!)

So, some of you may have seen my little teaser post on Twitter or FB about having good news to share....wanna know what it is??

I've been sitting on this news for a quite a while, so I'm pretty darn excited to finally get to tell you all that DEFY sold to Germany in an AUCTION earlier this year!!!!!!!

My book is going to get TRANSLATED into GERMAN and get a shiny German cover and everything!!! I'm so excited to have cbj Verlag  (which is part of Random House) publish my book! Now...do any of my friends sprechen Sie Deutsch? :):)

I think this calls for a little Loki celebration!!
 You're welcome.
There's no real reason why I added Thor to this post except that he's hot and I like to look at him.

That alone is worth celebrating, right? But that's not all...

There's only 1 month left until DEFY publishes (well, technically it'll be one month in two days, but that's a Saturday so I'm giving you a little jumpstart). You know what that means?? It's time for my last giveaway of an ARC of DEFY!!!

This month has gotten crazy in a hurry, so I'm making it super simple this time. Just a straightforward Rafflecopter giveaway. Do as many or as few options as you'd like, and boosh! You're entered!

This giveaway is open to US and Canada only.

This giveaway will run for one week, and I will announce the winner on Friday, December 13! (Do you think Friday the 13th will by your lucky day?? Better enter to find out!)

Good luck!!

Now I better get back to running around like a crazy person....

YAY! German bookstores are AWESOME! When I was in Munich I LOVED looking at all the covers of the YA books I knew and loved. Very awesome.

I'm very excited to read Defy - I've been hearing great things about it (from Janiel Miller ;))
And congrats on the German translation, ich spreche ein bisschen deutsch -- but not enough to read it in German!

I'm excited to win because the plot intrigues me! I have also been hearing reviews on how the book was amazing! Even if I don't win I can't wait to read it when it releases!

Anita Morgan said...

I looked for an email for you - but you're unsurprisingly and understandably not giving it out. I just wanted to say I received and ARC via NetGalley, and absolutely devoured Defy!!! I love books in this type of setting anyway, but really, this book is great! Alexa is a very strong and believable character, and if can't wait for the next book already!

Sara B. Larson said...

Thank you everyone for you excitement about DEFY!! And thank you Anita for letting me know how much you loved it--that means so much to me!! I am on facebook and twitter if you ever want to contact me. <3

Kathryn Purdie said...

I read this on my phone a few days ago when I was out and about, but my phone never lets me comment on Blogger. Grrr. Anyway, I'm so excited for you, Sara! And I'm beyond excited to see another cover for DEFY soon!
