Win an ARC of Shiver, signed Lament, other stuff from Maggie Stiefvater!

Maggie Stiefvater decided to do something slightly crazy (or crazily amazing) in a fit of spontaneity and has an ARC of her upcoming book, Shiver, as well as signed copies of her first book, Lament, up for grabs!

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again.

Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

Shiver will be released by Scholastic Press on August 1, 2009, but you can preorder it here! It sounds like it's going to be incredibly beautiful and I can't wait.

Now here's the contest part, taken from Maggie's blog:

The idea is to convince as many of your LJ or blogger or wordpress friends to post about SHIVER (you don't have to pay them, although it might help). Winner is whoever manages to get as many of their friends to post and comment back here by 8 p.m. EST on the 15th.

And the reward? Okay. Here it is. First of all, you have to get at least 5 friends to blog about it to be eligible. Winner gets:

- a signed ARC of SHIVER
- 4 signed copies of LAMENT
- and for each of the friends that you got to comment, a critique of the first 5 pages of any of their manuscripts

And if any single person manages to get over 50 friends to comment, I'll make it 3 ARCs of SHIVER and 8 copies of LAMENT.


Why would you want to miss up on this opportunity? I found out about this via Twitter but if you want to participate and have a chance to help one another out in order to win, post about Shiver and this giveaway on your blog and mention that you heard it from me (please please please!). Then go to Maggie's blog and let her know!

Thanks, and good luck, everyone! :)
