Supernaturally Launch Party (and Giveaway!)

Tuesday night I found myself leaving the Orange Bubble and heading down to Oceanside for Kiersten White's Supernaturally launch party! This was an extra awesome event because, not only was Kiersten there, but she was joined by her bff Stephanie Perkins, author of one of my favorite books ever in the world, Anna and the French Kiss, and Andrea Cremer, whose new book Wolfsbane also launched that day.

(I have to say, I wasn't familiar AT ALL with Andrea's books, but she was AWESOME in person. Not only is she totally gorgeous, but she's freaking hilarious. Nothing makes me want to read someone's book as much as when I meet them and they are rad.)

Kiersten, Andrea, and Stephanie
I love how Andrea is mid-laugh in this picture!

I went to Kiersten's launch for Paranormalcy last year and I thought she had a pretty impressive crowd. But I was blown away by the attendance at this event! I guess that's what happens when you get triple the awesome there signing! The line of people wrapped around several stacks and lasted for hours! There were tons of people there, and they just kept showing up. It was awesome to see such an amazing turnout.

Me with the lovely authors. I swear, I hope to one day be as awesome as these three.

I met up with some locals in the southern California writing community and we waited for the long, long, long line to die down. And then I schlepped up to the ladies with the 10 (!) books I needed them to sign.

I love going to local events and seeing these awesome faces!

And lucky YOU! Three of those books I got signed were for you guys!

I snagged a signed copy of Supernaturally by Kiersten White, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, and Nightshade by Andrea Cremer! And I'm going to give them away! To you!


Just fill out the form below and let me know which book or books you want to win. (It's totally okay to check all three boxes!) I'll toss an extra entry your way if you tweet about the contest, too. Just make sure you include @_JessicaLove somewhere in the tweet and leave the link in the form. The giveaway will close on Monday, August 8th at midnight PDT.

(I have to pay for shipping myself, so I need to limit to US / Canada addresses only. Sorry, international friends!)
