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:
- Marie Lu, the New York Times best-selling author of Legend and the upcoming Prodigy
- Marissa Meyer, the New York Times best-selling author of Cinder and the upcoming Scarlet
- Beth Revis, the New York Times best-selling author of Across the Universe, A Million Suns, and the upcoming Shades of Earth
- Victoria Schwab, author of The Near Witch and the highly-anticipated upcoming The Archived
- Megan Shepherd, author of the debut novel The Madman’s Daughter
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!
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.

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.
