Pics + a Giveaway!

A few weeks ago, YA author Shelley Adina, author of the All About Us series, asked me to join her book signing at Borders in San Jose, CA. You don't have to ask me twice! I agreed and we had a fun two hours attempting to gather customer attention. haha! We had some laughs as you might be able to tell from Shelley's photo. I tend to draw out the giggles from my author friends. :)

Here are a few pics...

And since Shelley was so cool to hang out with I'm giving away a signed copy of Shelley's first book in the series, IT'S ALL ABOUT US!

Tall, blonde Lissa Mansfield is used to being one of the "in" crowd--but being accepted by the popular girls at posh SpencerAcademy boarding school in San Francisco is turning out to be harder than she thought. And then there's her New-York-loudmouth roommate, Gillian Chang, who's not just happy to be a Christian herself--she's determined to out Lissa, too! If Lissa can just keep her faith under wraps long enough to hook Callum McCloud, the hottest guy in school, she'll be golden.

But when Callum pressures her to go all the way with him, Lissa has to decide for herself how far is too far. How can she see that line when he's so gorgeous and popular and she's so dazzled? And besides, she's too busy shopping for a Valentino and booking the hottest celeb for the Benefactors Ball. Who knew finding a place at SpencerAcademy would be so complicated?


So you know the drill--leave a comment from now until Sunday night (September 7th) and the winner will be announced Monday morning!

Hi Kelly and Shelley! Consider me exempt from this contest. I own the book, just haven't settled in to read it yet, since I have a book deadline. But I am sure looking forward to it. Good luck to all!

Ah man! Book signing are so fun! Looks like you guys had a nice time. Last weekend I happened to be in a mall with a bit of time to waste. I saw tons and tons and tons of people, way more than when I went to see David Sedaris there, it turns out it was Ron Paul. We happened to be leaving the store right as he came out to greet everyone. That was sort of interesting!
