LOSS blog tour recap

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Well, it’s been a heck of a month! I want to thank all of the phenomenal bloggers who toured me and helped promote LOSS:

YA Highway

Book Nerds Across America
Confessions of a Bookaholic
Mundie Moms
League of Reluctant Adults
Lauren’s Crammed Bookshelf
Literary Escapism
Book Monsters
The Compulsive Reader
Diary of a Bookworm
Paperback Dolls

Thank you, awesome bloggers and blog visitors! I’ve had a blast on the LOSS blog tour, and I hope you have too.

NOTE: The LOSS cover poster giveaway is still going at some of the blogs — please check to see which ones. And remember: all commenters who win a LOSS cover poster are automatically entered into the grand prize drawing: one lucky person will get all three books — HUNGER, RAGE and LOSS — signed by me, as well as the opportunity to name a character in the fourth and final book in the Riders of the Apocalypse, BREATH. I plan on picking the grand prize winner this Sunday, April 1. (No foolin’!) So this is your last chance to comment on the LOSS blog tour (not here — I mean, sure, go ahead and comment here, if you want, but for a chance to win, it has to be at the participating blogger’s sites as part of the LOSS blog tour). Good luck! And thank you again for helping me celebrate LOSS.

LOSS hits the shelves on March 20, 2012, and a terrific group of bloggers are participating in a book tour! Along with guest posts from me – each on a different topic – and a few interviews, many of the bloggers will also be posting reviews of LOSS (for better or for worse!). Check it out…including the giveaways and grand prize!
