Read or Write Anywhere Giveaway!




It's finally here!!!!

#ReadorWriteAnywhere is here and I'm so stoked! Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean we should stop reading and writing. My fellow YA Chicks and I are working with other amazing authors and writers on a global campaign to encourage readers, writers, students, and teachers to share pictures of all the places—both ordinary and extraordinary—where they are reading and writing. This is open to all readers/writers/lovers of both middle grade and young adult books. 

Look what you  can take part in…A MONSTER GIVEAWAY!  Every author participating in this campaign is giving away one of their books AND some are also giving up critiques, swag and/or Skype visits. Contest runs May 22nd, 2015-May 31st, 2015.So are you ready?Dun, dun, DUN!!!!Can you guess where I am?
That's me in the black and white stripes!



Here are my 5 clues:


1. I'm not South of the Border

2. But I am in the land of sombreros and maracas.

3. I am with the YA Chicks, but here we could be the Three Caballeros.

4. When I'm here, I love to be “goofy”?

5. This is the only place where Norway and Mexico are next door neighbors.


Once you’ve figured out where I am, head over to the YA Chicks site and:
Officially enter the giveaway by inputting each author’s name and your guesses about our locations. Every author location you guess correctly increases your chances to win. For even more chances, post a picture of yourself reading or writing on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag#ReadOrWriteAnywhere (must have the hashtag!).


For writer prize packs:
Post pictures of yourself writing in a fun location on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ReadOrWriteAnywhere. Then follow the directions on the Rafflecopter giveaway to let us know you did it. For even more chances, gather your writer friends together and post a group shot with the hashtag #ReadOrWriteAnywhere. And hey, since you’re already together, why not host a write-a-thon?


For teacher prize packs:
Post pictures of your class reading or writing on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag#ReadOrWriteAnywhere. Then let us know you did it when you enter the Rafflecopter. If you don’t have a Twitter or Instagram, you can email (yachicks@gmail.com) your picture directly with the picture pasted directly into the email (no attachments–we won’t open them) AND the subject, “Read or Write Anywhere.” You can also check out the YA Chicks Read or Write Anywhere lesson plan, available on our site.

Good luck!!!
