Upcoming Giveaways for BRUISED

My ARCs for BRUISED arrived on Monday!

[insert crickets]

What's an ARC, you ask? It stands for advance reader's copy. It's the almost-final-but-not-quite version of my book, printed like a paperback and sent to critics and reviewers in advance of the publishing date (which in my case is March 2013).

If you're a librarian, book seller, blogger, or reviewer, feel free to request a copy at my website. I'll forward the request to my publisher (no guarantees, but we'll do our best to accomodate you). For those who prefer to read online, BRUISED will be available on NetGalley in November.

If you don't fall into any of the above categories but you'd like a sneak peek at BRUISED, here are three opportunities to win one:

1) My first giveaway will be Monday, October 27th, at Iceybooks, alongside my Amulet sibling Cat Winters, who'll be giving away a copy of her debut IN THE SHADOW OF BLACKBIRDS.

2) My second giveaway will be the week of Thanksgiving, and will include copies of books by the wonderful authors who blurbed BRUISED, including (drumroll...) Miranda Kenneally, Trish Doller, Mariah Fredericks, and Ann Stampler!

3) In January, I'll be doing a signing at the Amulet booth for ALA Midwinter in Seattle, whee.

4) If you carjack me on the 405 you'll end up with a copy because I keep one in my work bag.


  1. I can't wait to join you at two of those events (not the carjacking one!). Congrats on reaching the ARC stage! That lovely blue cover looks amazing.

  2. Excitement! I'm considering the 405 option.

  3. Yay for you! I'm all signed up to receive an ARC. I totally can't wait to read it.

  4. Congrats, Sarah! I LOVE your ARC!!! Tweeting this...

  5. Your book looks so cool! I can't wait to get a copy.

  6. I know this is a little late, but congrats on getting your ARCs!! They are so pretty and I can't wait to read mine :0)

    Also, I really hope you don't get carjacked on the 405!

    1. Thanks! No carjackings so far. Fingers crossed ;)

  7. I teared up seeing the pic of you holding BRUISED. I can't wait to buy my very own copy and have you sign it.
