6 Months

Guess what? Yesterday marked 6 months until BORN WICKED is released! February 7 is circled on ALL of my calendars.

I’m so excited! I can’t wait for you all to meet Cate and her sisters and Sachi and Finn and, oh, everyone!

And we have a tagline! Blessed with a gift. Cursed with a secret. 

I love it. Thank you, Genius Assistant Paula, for coming up with it!

Every month leading up to release day I’m going to have a contest. On the 7th or the closest weekday. Next month I’ll have my first ARC to give away!

This month, since I don’t have mine yet, I’d like to give away two fabulous Putnam ARCs: LEGEND by Marie Lu and THE NAME OF THE STAR by Maureen Johnson.











I haven’t read NAME OF THE STAR yet but I’ve loved Maureen’s other books, especially SUITE SCARLETT, SCARLETT FEVER, and BERMUDEZ TRIANGLE. I read and loved LEGEND (read my review here). Don’t want to take my word for it? Lenore over at Presenting Lenore just gave it 5 Zombie Chickens and is giving away three copies, so you should enter there too!

All you have to do is leave a comment here, and then tweet (or Facebook) the shiny new tagline!

Blessed with a gift. Cursed with a secret. BORN WICKED. Contest here: http://bit.ly/oX2nR6 / @jessica_shea

Contest will be open until Friday at noon EST. This one’s only open to US residents but I’ll do more international ones in the future, promise!
