So I hope I have something here that is going to get you very, very, very excited. It's a big-ass cyber launch party for Ballads of Suburbia. You are all invited and here is your gorgeous video invitation created by The Compulsive Reader!
Didn't she do an amazing job? I think she is awesome!
Here are the details of the invite:
I'm throwing a cyber launch party for Ballads of Suburbia. It's gonna start on July 13th (my 30th birthday) and run for approximately a month. My guests are all fabulous writers and one very kick-ass musician.
Here's the Guest List:
What they'll be doing:
As you may have gathered from the Ballads of Suburbia book description, my characters in the book write their "ballads" in a notebook. The ballads are like confessions of the moments that changed their lives, often very secret, very heartbreaking. My guests won't be so heartbreaking I'm sure. They will be sharing a lot of interesting, personal stories, sometimes hilarious, often music themed. It's gonna be good stuff.
Many of my guests will also be giving away prizes, maybe signed copies of their books, maybe other fun stuff. At the end of the whole party, MTV Books has agreed to give out a grand prize basket of books to one lucky winner. So basically, I have a party, but you guys get all of the presents. That works out pretty nicely, huh?
And of course I'll be sharing some ballads of my own and giving away copies of Ballads of Suburbia. But you can win my very last ARC of Ballads RIGHT NOW.
This Week's Contest:
I will do a drawing for my last and final Ballads ARC next Monday. This contest is going to work the same way many of my other contests have worked. You spread the word about the Ballads of Suburbia Cyber Launch Blog Party. Each blog entry, or tweet or other online place you talk about the party, share the video invitation, etc counts as an entry. You also get entries for linking to this blog or talking about this contest. Get your friends involved. If they post about the blog party and let me know they learned about it from you, you get an entry.
By Monday July 6 at 9 am CST make sure I know about all of your entries. You can do this by sending me a complete list to stephanie at stephaniekuehnert dot com or by leaving the list in the comment section here. Friend referrels work the same way. Make sure they email me or comment that they heard from you so it counts as a entry. With twitter remember to include the @writerstephanie tag somewhere in there so I see the tweet.
I'll notify the winner of the Ballads ARC next Monday!
Comment away if you have any questions. And go ahead and express your excitement about the party too ;) I don't know about you, but I'm pretty psyched!
