Epic Book Deal Contest!

This weekend has been overwhelming. I've been blown away by the well-wishes on Facebook and Twitter, the emails and blog posts. It's moments like these that all the years of late-night writing, tears over rejections and fighting self-doubt become worth it.

I'm so excited to celebrate my book deal with you that I'm giving away three prize packs. I know some of you are readers, some are writers and some are travelers, so I've created a pack for each of you.

Writer's Pack
  • Critique of your first 10 pages by me
  • $25 Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift card- your choice!
  • $10 Starbuck's gift card
  • Journal and writing pens
  • Query critique from my writing partner, Kate Fall, who has just opened her own editing business 

Reader's Pack
  • Copies of my writing partner's books: autographed copy of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE by Beth Revis, I'M BORED illustrated by Debbie Ridpath Ohi, and a preordered copy of PROPHECY by Ellen Oh 
  • A Samjokgo amulet (or some spell it as Samjogo)- this represents strength and was considered the most powerful symbol in Korea during the Koguryo Kingdom. This amulet has a big role in my book!


Traveler's Pack
  • Traveler's journal and writing pens
  • "Woman On the Go" traveler kit
  • Kindle or Nook (your choice!) versions of these great YA books: TEN by Gretchen McNeil and DEFIANCE by C.J Redwine.

I would go to London. I have always wanted to go there and really its the only place I have extreme wanderlust for!

I would go to Japan. My choice is seriously biased since I'm an anime fan. :)

I would go to Australia because it's the native continent of kangaroos. But Britain and Italy are also good choices...

India, and I want to go for a chunk of time. I don't know if you can really get it if you don't stay for a while.

Scott Pilgrim said...

India! It is such a magical place!

Jemi Fraser said...

First of all WOOHOOOOOOOOO! I missed the announcement and I'll go back in a sec and get caught up. I'm SO THRILLED for you!!! :)

I'd go on an African photo safari ... or Italy ... or Hong Kong ... or back to Scotland ... or...

Right now I'd choose Costa Rica. For research ;0)

Wow, I go away for Thanksgiving weekend and come back to this amazing news!!! Congrats, Christina. :D

Congratulations!
And I would go to the town where my grandparents lived in England before they moved to the US. I've always wanted to see it.

Christina Farley said...

These are such great places! Now I want to go jump on an airplane.

Mystery Robin said...

Wow - awesome giveaway!
If I could get on a plane right now I'd go to Santa Barbara to see old friends and new ones and have an iced vanilla latte on the beach. ;)

Jeju Island in Korea!

Vijaya said...

What a generous giveaway, Christina. Thank you. Right now, I'd love to return to India ... but other than that, I'm quite content in our new environs.

DeenaML said...

What a cool way to celebrate your book deal (YAY!). I've been lucky enough to travel much of the U.S. and Europe, so I need to head west...today I'm thinking New Zealand. :)

Peggy Eddleman said...

So happy for you!

I'd go to Scotland. :)

Robin said...

I've always wanted to go to Australia (and New Zealand, but that's 2:)

Congrats on your book deal!

Kathryn Purdie said...

Congrats on your book deal. You give us all hope!

And I'd go to England--for research and FUN!!

Bish Denham said...

I'm SO EXCITED for you. I know you must still be doing the happy dance.

Bish Denham said...

I commented before I read the question! I'd go to Scotland.

Medeia Sharif said...

I'm late reading your news. Huge congratulations! Now I'll be seeing you at a future first books panel. :)

Christina Farley said...

I love all of the places you guys have mentioned!

Medeia- yes! That will be soooo awesome. I can't wait!

Deborah Schaumberg said...

I would go to England and Scotland to stay in old haunted castles and see Stonehenge.

mclicious.org said...

Hey, congratulations! And what a cool giveaway idea. I always say there are only a handful of countries I wouldn't visit if someone offered me a ticket--it doesn't seem exactly the time to go to Syria or Sudan, maybe, but I'd love to see everywhere else! Lately I'm really dying to go to Iceland--bike all day, hotsprings all afternoon, vodka all night. Sounds good, no?

poppywritesabook said...

Egypt or Greece!

Kristi said...

Well. I've been very lucky enough to have traveled every year for pretty much all my life. But there are still places I haven't been to! I think Scotland and Australia would be awesome to visit. :)

Thanks for the giveaway!

Heather Simone said...

Congratulations on your deal for GILDED! So excited to read it!

I would go to Germany where I have family I haven't seen in 2 decades. :-)

Such a great giveaway idea with the three packs.
