Introducing...LIESL & PO!!

I am so, so, excited about what I have to share with you today...Advance Readers Copies of my new middle-grade book, LIESL & PO!! Some of the sketches aren't final, but the ARCs come swaddled in this absolutely gorgeous box; check out the pictures below. Isn't it magic??


Well, GOOD. Because I'm giving away THREE COPIES NOW, and I'll give away THREE COPIES EACH MONTH until the book comes out in October.

You might be asking--Why am I so nice? Because I love you, of course!

You might ALSO be asking, how do I enter to win?? Well, in this round, I'm going to keep it simple. You get +1 entry for responding to this post (with your email, of course), and telling me what your favorite book was when you were a little kid. (Mine was probably Matilda, by Roald Dahl, or the Redwall Series, by the brilliant and recently deceased Brian Jacques). Please remember to include your email address!
Additionally, you get +2 for being a follower of my blog, and + 3 for twittering about it. If you do a blog post about the contest/my first foray into middle-grade, you get a whopping +4!

My absolute favorite book as a kid was Martin the Warrior, by the above mentioned Brian Jacques. I got it a school book fair and spent the rest of the evening lost in it. Read through the open house, through dinner, through bedtime, finally stumbled downstairs SOBBING at two in the morning and scared the living daylights out of my mother. I had just never CARED about characters that way before!
And congrats on the MG! Very exciting!

Maestra Amanda said...

Congratulations! I can't wait to read it!

I was a late bloomer, isn't that sad? The first book I remember loving was Are You There God, It's Me Margaret?

Only now, in my 30s am I discovering great MG books...mostly through my son!

Anonymous said...

oh, YAY! a MG! :D I saw this on Goodreads a few weeks ago and added to my to-read list. I seemed to have skipped MG, so I've been wanting to read a lot more! Gotta embrace my forgotten childhood. ;D

My favorite books were probably Dr. Seuss or WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. I love those books. <3

I remember reading A Bargain for Frances over and over again. I had a friend like Thelma, so I guess I could relate.

So cool!

My favourite book as a kid was "Ella Enchanted" by Gail Carson Levine. I had it on book on tape and I wore out the cassette lying in bed listening to it over and over.

I follow your blog on google reader so I have +3 total :)


Jenn (Books At Midnight) said...

Those are absolutely ADORABLE. And you've pretty much named my two favorite MG books of all time. I was reading Matilda the first time my parents discovered my reading after bedtime with my flashlight, and I literally had a Redwall-reading competition with one of my guy classmates back in fourth grade. I also loved the Merlin series and The Circle of Magic series by Tamora Pierce. :)

Thanks for the giveaway!

I had so many favorites growing up - the most memorable was Tuck Everlasting because my 4th grade teacher read it to us every single day after lunch. I still hear her voice when I think of it. :) Now I teach 7th grade and read to my kids but not as faithfully.

PS Saw you speak at TLA last week - GREAT insight! I took one of your discussion guides back to my one of my students and she was all smiles. She's read Delirium at least four times this year.

The BFG by Raoald Dahl was all time favorite book as a kid. I remember picking it up in maybe the first grade and thinking it was the BIGGEST BOOK EVER. Another favorite is Harry Potter, which is the reason why I fell in love with reading in the first place.

I'm so excited for you!
My favorite books were the Madeline Series, which were about a little girl in Paris. I was "reading" the first one at 18 months (more like I had it completely memorized)! Now, I read them every so often for a pick-me-up.
I love children's books. They made me the reader I am, and let me grow up in hundreds of magical worlds. That is why I love reading fiction now.
I will definitely get a copy of your book by October, if not sooner *fingers crossed*
Thank you for the opportunity!

What a sweet looking book! As a child hmmm....I read so many books I'm not sure. But I would say THE LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE series. Those were the first non-picture-type books I read and I loved the history in them. A sort of link to the past.

Bonnie @ A Backwards Story said...

What an awesome giveaway! I would totally love to win an ARC that comes in an adorable box like that!

My favorite book as a child was "Ella Enchanted" by Gail Carson Levine. It's still my favorite children's novel. I loved that Ella knew the prince before the ball and that it wasn't the traditional love-at-first-sight story. It was my first time seeing a new version of a fairy tale. Today, this is one of my favorite genres and I'm even writing my own fractured fairy tale. GCL set me on this path!

When I was little my favorite book was probably Farmer Boy from the Little House on the Prairie series. Most likely because I was partially in love with Alfanso. Maybe I still am. OR it is more likely that I was in love with the Thanksgiving-sized meals he and his family ate for each stinking meal. Yeah, thats probably more likely :D

OMSquee, this looks super!
I have gone through a lot of book phases, even as a kid, but there were a few that remained constant:
as a young kid, I was obsessed with The Velveteen Rabbit. I mean obsessed, too, that's not an exaggeration.
As I got a little older, they were almost all classics, especially Oliver Twist, Little Men and Anne of Green Gables, all of which still hold a special place in my heart (especially Anne).

Hello Lauren!

Unfortunately, I'm not on Twitter or Live Journal (or any blog site for that matter) but I love love love reading yours & others from favorite YA authors. It's so amazing that you guys do that! It keeps the wait in between books bearable! LOL.

Anyway, my favorite books as a kid were probably Amelia's Notebook by Marissa Moss (inspired me to write in my own notebooks!) & the Ramona series by Beverly Cleary. I think I'm going to re-read those soon! I miss Ramona :)

Congrats on the new book! Very very excited to enjoy it soon! XOXOX

Hooray! I can't wait to read it!
My favorite book when I was growing up was probably...Charlotte's Web. I loved it so hard. And, to this day, I have a huge soft spot for books that are set on farms, or in the countryside somewhere far away from big, bustling cities. I also loved The Witches by Roald Dahl, too. It's a close second. But Charlotte wins out in the end.

I commented (+1) and I'm a follower! (+2), and I can't wait to read Liesl & Po!

I had so many favorites as a kid! But the book I say is my very favorite was Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls. I still reread it regularly.

Britta said...

I am so excited for this one! It sounds super cute and I am amazed by your first two books, so this one can't be anywhere short of awesome! Also, I love that box/book combo - it is really unique and beautiful.

My favorite picture books growing up were Where the Wild Things Are, and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Then I moved on to the Biscuit books (first chapter books!). The first real books that I really liked were A Series of Unfortunate Events, Gathering Blue and The Borrowers!

Thanks for the chance :)

I can't really say I had a favorite book as a child...I read everything I could put my hands on. But one that stands out for me is "Where the Red Fern Grows" because it was the first book that made me cry.

My favorite book when I was a kid? I would have to say Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl. It may seem slightly sinister a choice, but this book offered me so much insight into history AND a little girl's strength. I still remember myself shuddering while reading it.
I've just discovered your blog - I'm very curious about your books!

Hey Lauren, congrats on the ARC - I’m looking forward to read the book!

I’m from a little country, Denmark, on a slightly different continent, so I’m not sure you know/recognize my favorite books. As a child I mostly read books by Nordic writers, especially Astrid Lindgren, Åke Holmberg and Ulf Löfgren but I also LOVED the Little House of the Prairie series.

As a small child, it was “Beatrice Doesn’t Want To”, which is kind of ironic as it’s about a girl who doesn’t like trying new things (and reading), and ends up trying and loving it. I thought it was only fitting that this was my favourite childhood book, as I love reading now! That, and Harry Potter =P.

I didn't have a single favorite novel from when I was a child, but I was insanely in love with the Fear Street novels by R.L. Stine. Especially the Fear Street Saga, which told how everything began, basically. I still have some of those books and I will always remember cracking into a pile that I had just checked out from the library. Whether it was Goosebumps or Fear Street, R.L. Stine will forever be a part of my childhood and I only hope that someday my children will have an author like that for them.

It's hard to choose a favorite book from childhood, because I read ALL the time...but I guess The Witches by Roald Dahl, Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell, and Witch Hunt by Wendi Corsi Staub are probably up there...they are certainly the most worn out from re-reading them!

Um, WOW - you've got a lot of entries!

My favorite book when I was a kid was GEORGE'S MARVELOUS MEDICINE, by Roald Dahl. I loved the way he described the crotchety old grandmother's mouth as being wrinkled up like a dog's bottom - it struck me, at the time, as being the most perfect description of a disapproving grandparent's pursed lips. I still love it. And I love the way George got back at her by making his own magic medicine!

I follow your blog (+2), and no-one is awake now so I'll tweet about this in the morning (+3). I'll also link to it in my sidebar. (I'm giving away signed copies of your books from when you were in Canada for the DELIRIUM tour on my blog, so I might also mention your giveaway and link to it. I'll come back and let you know.)

Thanks for the generous giveaway! The box for the ARC is gorgeous...
