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:

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! 
As I live in the UK, I won’t be voting. But why should you vote for your hometown?
Don’t just give voting a miss because you think that other people will vote for you. One vote could be all it takes!
Authors visiting towns for book tours and such helps people read their books! You never know, somebody could pick up one of these amazing books and it could change their life! Books offer such an opportunity to escape and I know how much they have helped me.
With the authors visiting libraries and bookshops on the stop, it is also a great promotion for them! With many people buying their books online now, bookshops aren’t being given the business they deserve. And many libraries are under threat because of their lack of funding. We can’t let online shops take over, can we?!
And one of the main reasons: you can get your books signed! I love book signings because you get to meet your favourite authors! It’s a great experience and is also very inspiring. 
Why should the YA2U Team come to your hometown? 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!

    I just need to come out and say this now:

    THE MADMAN’S DAUGHTER IS POSSIBLY THE BEST THING THAT’S EVER HAPPENED TO ME. Okay, totally joking, but in the year 2012 and bookwise, THAT IS LEGIT. And OMG Cinder and Scarlet <33 I am SO EXCITED for those! Well, I have Scarlet on my shelf, which is like a TOTAL stroke of luck, because otherwise, I'd still be hyperventilating in the hops of getting it!

    And I would tell everybody to vote for a town near me, but my town’s so sleepy and boring and non-readery that I’d be talking to a unicorn (MY unicorn to be exact! ;)). So I think I’ll just be holding that foam finger over there and go “YAY BOOKS OF WONDER!”

    Or maybe not.
