A Very Bland Giveaway

Jaundice and Kale Bland can’t remember the last time they left the house. I can relate. Can you?

Tomorrow (5/19) is the pub day for the paperback of Flight of the Bluebird, the final Bland Sisters adventure! In honor of this auspicious occasion, I’m hosting a giveaway. Here are the rules:

  • Channel your inner Bland Sister on Twitter and tweet one thing you actually enjoy about staying at home, using the hashtag #BlandSisters.
  • One entry per person. US entries only. Contest will end at 11:59 ET pn Thursday, 5/21.
  • Three winners will be announced on Twitter on Friday, 5/22.
  • Each lucky winner will receive signed paperback editions of all Unintentional Adventures, three Bland Sisters bookmarks, and a Bland Sisters button!

(Not actual size.)

Who knows? Despite all this confinement, you might emerge victorious — talk about an unintentional adventure!


A World Read Aloud Day GIVEAWAY! (UPDATE: We have a winner!)

Hello, educators and librarians! Are you still floating from those ALAYMA announcements this morning? I know I am. I’m thrilled for all the winners!

At the same time, I’m thinking about the other big event this week: World Read Aloud Day. I’m SUPER BUMMED I’m not able to participate this year, but I still want to find a way to celebrate. So here’s the deal:

  • My publisher has sent me 7000+ (yes you read that right!) PROJECT FLUFFY bookmarks (photo evidence above).
  • I’d like to give away most of these to your students. I’ll be picking the first winner for this giveaway. Each winner will receive 500 bookmarks (enough for an ENTIRE SCHOOL, hooray!) and a signed copy of PROJECT FLUFFY for your library!
  • ENTER TO WIN by posting a review of ANY Infamous Ratsos or Bland Sisters story on Amazon, then email me your contact info here.
  • Even if you don’t win, I’ll still send you 25 bookmarks (enough for one classroom, or to use as reading rewards).
  • This contest will run until 12:01am EST on Friday, February 1st. US entries only.

Good luck, and HAPPY READING!

UPDATE: The first winner is Kimberly McDermid! Congratulations!
