As I said last week I'll be giving away 3 copies of Geektastic to my readers! And we can just call this post...Tuesday Throw-up? O.O
Acclaimed authors Holly Black (Ironside) and Cecil Castellucci (Boy Proof) have united in geekdom to edit short stories from some of the best selling and most promising geeks in young adult literature: M.T. Anderson, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Tracy Lynn, Cynthia and Greg Leitich Smith, David Levithan, Kelly Link, Barry Lyga, Wendy Mass, Garth Nix, Scott Westerfield, Lisa Yee, and Sara Zarr.
With illustrated interstitials from comic book artists Hope Larson and Bryan Lee O'Malley, Geektastic covers all things geeky, from Klingons and Jedi Knights to fan fiction, theater geeks, and cosplayers. Whether you're a former, current, or future geek, or if you just want to get in touch with your inner geek, Geektastic will help you get your geek on!
So here are the rules:
You must give me your geekiest tales to be entered. I will select a panel of judges to pick the best entry and she/he will be an automatic winner. The rest of you with face the horrors of random.org and my excel spreadsheet.
+1 if you spread word of this contest (blog, twitter, facebook, paper airplanes...oh! you can also email 5 friends and CC me a copy to be counted as an entry if you can't blog. Blog=email=blog. One or the other Twitter, facebook, and paper airplanes are their own separate thing). It's an entry per method. Remember to leave me a link! I won't count it if I can't find it!
And...that's basically it. I want your geekiest tales and spread the word if you want. I won't count extra entries for followers because it takes a while to count those. Remember that Huggles Part 2 may happen sooner than you think...
This is a US only contest because Little Brown will be the one shipping it. Contest will end on August 17th giving you 3 whole weeks to enter. Please leave a way for me to contact you.
