Bringing YA To You

Have you ever wished that a big YA book tour would make a stop in your hometown? Well, here's your chance for that wish to come true! YA2U is a program that features five award-winning and best-selling authors who are holding a contest to see what city they should visit in an exclusive tour stop!

The authors are collecting votes from January 1 to February 15, and any city in the continental US or any Canadian city that has an international airport can win an exclusive visit from all five authors, including an author panel and book signing! Entering is super easy--and if you help spread the word about the contest, you can also enter win a signed copy of all of their books (TEN signed books in total!)--and the book contest is open internationally!

The authors in the program are:
* Marie Lu, the New York Times best-selling author of Legend and the upcoming Prodigy
* Marissa Meyer, the New York Times best-selling author of Cinder and the upcoming Scarlet
* Beth Revis, the New York Times best-selling author of Across the Universe, A Million Suns, and the upcoming Shades of Earth
* Victoria Schwab, author of The Near Witch and the highly-anticipated upcoming The Archived
* Megan Shepherd, author of the debut novel The Madman's Daughter

And they want to have an event in your home town! To participate, just got to the YA2U website and let them know what city you want them to come to. And while you're there, help spread the word about the contest and you can be entered to win all of their books--TEN signed books in total!

Here's why the YA2U Team should come to MY hometown in SEATTLE!

Contrary to popular belief we do have some amazing weather in Seattle, when it is nice it is PERFECT! We have some amazing sights to see that will keep the authors entered should they come to our city. They have the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, The Gum Wall (in Pike), beautiful waterfront, Ride the Duck tour, EMP (Experience Music Project), Pacific Science Center, original Starbucks and Seattle Best Coffee houses. Us Washingtonians love our books. Since we do have a lot of rain, that produces because green scenery, we get to stay indoors a lot and read lots of books. We do have lots of readers that would love to support all of the these authors.

Why not join in the fun today and share with others about this program and your hometown. The more votes your town gets, the closer you are to having your very own personal tour stop! Vote for YOUR town here!

And if you help spread the word, you can also participate in the book giveaway. Tell them that you learned about YA2U from me and we both get extra entries in the contest!
