Here's the scoop, Australian readers. Contest #1: Be the first person in Australia to win an early copy of Blood Promise! To enter, you need to email email@example.com and tell them in 25 words or less (pretty short - so be concise!) why you think you should be the winner. This contest runs through June 29 at 4pm (your time).
The second contest is to win a copy of a different VA book. Penguin Australia wants to re-read one of the others in the series as a group and have a discussion a la book club style. The book that'll be re-read will be chosen by votes. So again, cast your vote to firstname.lastname@example.org. The book that gets the most votes will be the winner. As a special bonus, the first 50 people to vote will win a copy of that book. This contest runs through June 20.
So, Australian friends, get in on these contests! You should also check out the official rules on Penguin Australia's website to make sure I have them right. And again, for those who missed the announcement, the Australian release is August 26. With the time change, that's August 25--the same day as the United States. For other parts of the world, I don't know your release. Sorry! I only know what international publishers communicate to me.
So good luck! And to my Q&A winners, I'll be in touch soon.
