I promised myself that before my next book signing I would come up with a cute/witty/intriguing/memorable phrase to sign THE VEIL with. You know – something to put between the “To [Person's Name]” and the “Cory Putman Oakes” on the title page.
Well, my next signing is coming up on January 14 (YAK Fest! Can’t wait!) and I have not been able to come up with anything so . . . I am opening it up to you in the form of a contest.
HOW TO WIN: Leave a comment below with your suggestion for the catch phrase PLUS your Twitter handle. (I promise to follow anyone who comments, plus that’s how I’ll notify the winners).
WHAT YOU WIN: If I pick your phrase, I will send you a copy of THE VEIL (signed, using the new phrase!) There is a chance for multiple winners if I end up getting more than one phrase I want to use (so feel free to enter multiple suggestions).
Haven’t read THE VEIL yet? Here’s the blurb from the back cover, just to get your creative juices flowing:
Seventeen-year-old Addison Russell is in for a shock when she discovers that she can see the invisible world of the Annorasi. Suddenly, nothing is as it appears to be—the house she lives in, the woman who raised her, even the most beautiful boy in town all turn out to be more than what they seem. And when this strange new world forces Addy to answer for a crime that was committed long ago, by parents she has never known, she has no choice but to trust Luc, the mysterious Annorasi who has been sent to protect her. Or so he says . . .
Thank you in advance for your suggestions! And hey, if an author has ever signed a book to you in a way you found obnoxious, creepy or weird, I’d love to hear about that too (don’t embarrass the author by including their name – just tell me what they said that creeped you out). It’ll be just as helpful for me to know what NOT to do
