Get crazy for DELIRIUM and WIN!

Alright, people, it's contest time!

The title of my second book has been officially selected: DELIRIUM, a dystopian Romeo-and-Juliet story, will be hitting the stores in 2011, and I want to know what you think of the title--so I'm turning it into a contest!

The winner will receive a signed finished copy of BEFORE I FALL, my debut novel, which will be released on March 2, 2010!

Here's how to enter:
Comment back (with email address)-- 1 point
Twitter retweet -- 2 points
Blog about the contest (in sidebar) --3 points
Blog about the contest (in regular blogpost) -- 4 points
Are you a follower? Then you get 5 whole points!

(BTW, "points" in this instance translates to "entries," meaning that if someone comments back, retweets on twitter, and is a follower, he/she will have his or her name entered eight times in the contest, and therefore a much greater chance of winning!)

Hurry, hurry! I am only running this contest now until 2/14. On Valentine's Day I pick a winner. You know why? Because I love you!

Good luck!



Raíla said...

Aw! Is this contest international? Please, tell me because I'm from Brazil and I really hope it is. I'd love to win Before I Fall. It's totally on the top of my wishlist! I'd also think that DELIRIUM is a real good name for your new book, which I'm planning to read as soon as it comes out. I have never read any Romeo and Juliet story neither watched the movie, but I have ideas about what it's like, you know? Thanks! For both: luck and the contest.

By the way, my email is raila.soares[at]gmail[dot]com

THANK YOU again!

Emily J. Griffin said...

I'm sorry, did you just say "dystopian Romeo-and-Juliet?" Those might be my two favorite things EVER! I'm so excited to hear more.

I'm down for the title-- maybe a little more knowledge about the relation of the title to the story? Perhaps you're under strict gag orders... Either way, it sounds great.

Katie said...

Wow that is awesome. I have only recently started reading dystopian books and a Romeo and Juliet one? Sounds amazing. I love the title and I can't wait to hear more about the book.

I LOVE the title! I think it really fits the premise of the book, and I just have to say, dystopian and one of the greatest love story ever wrapped up in one? I can't wait! Just reading about it, I feel like I'm going to explode with anticipation!!
Thanks for a chance to win a copy of Before I Fall, I really really want to read it so much!

I'm with Emily - you are combining two of my FAVORITE things in this book!!! But also that I'm really curious how this relates to the content... it's not as easily identifiable as "Before I Fall" with the plot to that one. You've intrigued me. =)

DELIRIUM sounds like a book that would grab my eye on the bookshelf. I confess I'm a big "judge a book by the cover and title" reader. I think a lot of my students will be interested in a Romeo & Juliet story, too.
