Paying Homage: The NaNoWriMo Scarlet ARC Giveaway

Announcement #1: The book trailer giveaway is still underway and I am thrilled with how many people have watched the trailer and entered to win! I love the trailer and am glad so many of you do too. There are 3 days left to enter, so if you haven’t yet, go here!

Announcement #2: Someone asked about pre-ordering signed copies of Scarlet. I believe you can pre-order a copy now from Garfield Book Company in Tacoma, WA, and I’ll be able to sign it at the launch party on February 5. I think they’ll even ship international. Scarlet’s not listed on their site yet, so I would try calling or emailing them. (You can also order signed copies of Cinder.)

Announcement #3: My NaNoWriMo pep talk went out last week, landing in the nanomail boxes of 300,000 nano-ers! Read the pep talk here – I hope you’ll find it inspiring!

Announcement #4: Can you believe it? I am down to my last two Scarlet ARCs! Which means it’s time for another giveaway!

The NaNoWriMo Winner Giveaway

CINDER and SCARLET both started life as Nano novels (in 2008), and I wanted to pay homage to that by hosting a Nano-centric giveaway this year. I also wanted to reward all you inspired, hard-working writers who said, “This month, I am going to stop giving in to excuses and setting aside my dreams. This month, I am going to write that novel!”

Unfortunately, I only get to reward ONE writer who fits that bill (the rest of you will have to be content with the enthusiastic flush of success and the winner’s certificate made for you by the good people at

So if you’re doing NaNo this year, you have five days left to cross that 50K mark, submit your word count, earn yourself that shiny Winner Badge, and enter to win a signed Scarlet ARC!

To Enter

Step 1. Finish your 50K novel by midnight (your time zone) on November 30.

Step 2. Submit it to the Nano word counters and earn your shiny Winner badge.

Step 3. Add me as a buddy. My username is aliblade22. (Left over from the good ol’ fanfiction days, and I’m now too attached to my account to change it.)

I will randomly select one winner from my buddy list to receive the ARC on November 2 to ensure all time zones have had a chance to finish.

Open internationally.

I wish you all loads of inspiration and happily ever afters as you reach The End. Good luck!

(And don’t worry, if you’re not doing Nano, my final giveaway will go live in December and anyone will be able to enter that one.)
