The Sugar Lips BTIB ARC Giveaway!

I cannot believe that BAD TASTE IN BOYS comes out in 20 days. The waiting time really crawled in the beginning. And then about three months ago, I went into hyperspeed and haven't come out since. Hopefully I'm not about to land on what I mistakenly think is a small moon and get stuck in a garbage compactor with a killer eyeball on a stalk.

Although when you put it that way, it sounds kind of fun.

Anyway. I am so happy to tell you that I managed to dig up ONE LAST ARC. And I am giving it away. Like, NOW. That's right; it's the official SUGAR LIPS BTIB ARC GIVEAWAY! EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

The rules are simple. I'm giving out one last ARC to a lucky reader who helps spread the sugar lippy love. You can do this a lot of different ways. Post my lip-tastic cover on your blog or facebook. Change your twitter icon. Take a picture of yourself with sugar lips and post THAT. Make a slideshow of people with sugar lips. Give your dog sugar lips. ANYTHING that is sugar lip related and references BAD TASTE IN BOYS will qualify.

Post me! Post me! NOM NOM NOM.

Tell me what you've done in the comments below. You have until June 30th to get your entries in; I will post the winners on July 1st before I take a week off. That's right, peepul. There will be TWO WINNERS.
  • The LAST ARC (unless I dig up another) will go to one random participant. You'll get one entry for every post or mention. But you've got to tell me about them in the comments.
  • A BTIB hardcover with SEKRIT NOTES will go to one person of my choice. These notes will give you info that I haven't talked about in interviews, like who the original villain was in early versions of BTIB, and my favorite funny lines that I had to delete, and things like that. I'm looking for someone who wows me with sheer volume or cracks me up with some hilarious sugar lippy creativity.

This giveaway is open internationally, so run forth and sugar those lips! And please do ask questions in the comments, because I'm sure that I've forgotten to tell you something important.

Lip on, people. Lip. On.

Hey Carrie, I changed my twitter avatar @larissaharvard, I also have a coming soon slideshow on my blog and BTIB is in it!

Thanks so much for the giveaway!!

Unknown said...

I super creatively went on Google and found a cool picture of sugar lips then changed my Twitter avatar!

Then I decided that wasn't enough so I've basically just plastered your book cover all over my wall because it's awesome.

Then I made a facebook banner instead of eating pasta...!/ComaCalm!/profile.php?id=100000151018110

If that doesn't work, Im @ComaCalm on twitter and ComaCalm Blogs on Facebook...

Karen said...

I have absolutely no skills when it comes to facebook and twitter, so I just wanted to say...

I can't wait for your book to come out!!

Unknown said...

You know you've got a place on the blog where your novel sits! I love you too much to not have that!!!!

I'll be tweeting as well. I've recently become a master. I think.

WOOHOOO 20 days away! That's incredible!

Cate Gardner said...

I'd coat my lips in sugar if a) I had lips worth photographing and b) if I wasn't on a diet.

I can't believe how fast the publication date has come around, but also how slow. I'm an oxymoron.

I made this: and set it as my Twitter profile, but then I realized my mom probably won't let me enter because of the whole "giving out your address on the internet" thing. But do I get brownie points?

You have me interested so...I am working on this tomorrow! :)

Vikki said...

Okay, so I fiddled around with iMovie and a little somethin' somethin'. Then I spent four days trying to UPLOAD IT TO BLOGGER. I now need medication and massive amounts of therapy. I finally just uploaded it to youtube and imbedded it. I hope there aren't any copyright issues. If so, please don't sue me. I'm broke, sleep deprived and have chubby ankles. I'd never win!
