The winner of IMPULSE by Ellen Hopkins, as chosen by random number generator, is… Thea! Send me your address, T, and then join in the readergirlz fun this month. So much going on at the blog!
stargirl.gif This week, I’m giving away a book that Lis mentioned in last week’s comments when I asked what book character you’d want for a BFF. Lis said STARGIRL, and I was jealous that I hadn’t thought of her! I recently read Jerry Spinelli’s amazing novel (I’m behind, I know), and it has haunted me since. It’s a *must read*, and I don’t say that often. Please read it!
And yes, I know I need to get Love, Stargirl too! I can’t wait.
So this week, to win a copy of Stargirl, I want you guys to help me spread the word about my May 5th release, Lovestruck Summer. I made countdown widgets… finally!… and I’d love it if you’d post either version on your blogs, your profile pages, in a twitter message, as a bulletin, etc. Any way you share it counts–just tell me what you did in the comments. (Hit that “Share” button in the lower left corner for options.)


Happy Wednesday–and thank you! I always feel a little sheepish asking for promo help.

    I don’t really want Stargirl, but I’ll still spread the word. I can’t wait for your new book to come out!

    Is it that close to the release already? Wow! A year went by fast! My blog doesn’t like these sorts of widgets sadly, so I can’t put one up but I appreciate the reminder that it’s THIS May 5th!!
    (So, don’t put me in the draw or anything. :) Also, I haven’t commented here in so long, I’m sorry!)

    I haven’t read stargirl yet, but I would love to! Please include me in the giveaway. Also very much looking forward to your book, and have posted your countdown here:

    I don’t have anywhere I can post your widget at but I just wanted to drop you a line to say congrats on Lovestruck Summer! The cover is too cute!!

  5. Mona says:

    i posted your countdown on my myspace!
    i’d loved to win stargirl!!

  6. Awww, Stargirl was always one of my favorites!
    P.S. The song in the background of my video is “Thinking, Drinking, Sinking Feeling” by Slow Song. You might recognize it from that adorable Lays potato chip commercial. :)

    Just wanted to say I posted this on Win A Book. No need to enter me.

  8. Michelle Kuo says:

    Ahh I’m so excited for this to come out! I put the widget on my sidebar of my blog:

  9. Lis says:

    YAY!! Stargirl :D I love Jerry Spinelli for having created such great awesomeness. I’m still on a mission to try and get everyone I know to read it hehe
    Believe it or not I don’t have my own copy so I’d love to enter. I was actually going to buy it last friday at Half Price…but then I saw a book I hadn’t read, so I bought that instead hehe :D
    I posted the widget!!!

  10. Rock the widgets. I _love_ little summaries beside covers – the best of both worlds!

  11. Erika Lynn says:

    i posted it on my left sidebar!!
    love the widgets, so much fun.

  12. Wrighty says:

    I would absolutely love to help promote your book! I can’t wait to read it. Don’t feel sheepish. Promotion is a good thing and you were so nice about it.
    I just got Love, Stargirl for 50c from a used book shelf at my library. I look forward to reading it but I haven’t read Stargirl yet. I don’t know if I can post this widget because I have a dial-up connection (ugh) that’s too slow to do some things. If I can get it to work I’ll make another comment here. Wow, May 5th is only a month away! Woo hoo!

  13. Wrighty says:

    Yay! It worked. It took a long time but it worked. I have a widget posted in the sidebar of my blog.

  14. Thanks, you guys! Telling a librarian or friend or bookstore that you are looking forward to it counts too! Those widgets are sometimes tricky. :)

  15. Reyna says:

    I’m really looking forward to reading “Lovestruck Summer” so I’m happy to post a widget on my book blog!

    Nice widget! I posted it on the sidebar of my blog!
    Thanks for the contest! Even though I already read “Stargirl”, it was phenomenal so I would love to read it again!
    Good luck everyone!

  17. This is really interesting. I am glad I found this place. I guess it is true, We really do learn something new everyday!
