Bringing YA to YOU! (Vote for San Diego!)

Have you ever wished that a big YA book tour would make a stop in your hometown (SAN DIEGO)? Well, here's your chance for that wish to come true! YA2U is a program that features five award-winning and best-selling authors who are holding a contest to see what city (SAN DIEGO) they should visit in an exclusive tour stop!

The authors are collecting votes from January 1 to February 15, and any city in the continental US (SAN DIEGO) or any Canadian city that has an international airport can win an exclusive visit from all five authors, including an author panel and book signing! Entering is super easy--and if you help spread the word about the contest, you can also enter win a signed copy of all of their books (TEN signed books in total!)--and the book contest is open internationally!

The authors in the program are:

  • Marie Lu, the New York Times best-selling author of Legend and the upcoming Prodigy
  • Marissa Meyer, the New York Times best-selling author of Cinder and the upcoming Scarlet
  • Beth Revis, the New York Times best-selling author of Across the Universe, A Million Suns, and the upcoming Shades of Earth
  • Victoria Schwab, author of The Near Witch and the highly-anticipated upcoming The Archived
  • Megan Shepherd, author of the debut novel The Madman's Daughter

And they want to have an event in your home town (SAN DIEGO)! To participate, just got to the YA2U website and let them know what city you want them to come to. And while you're there, help spread the word about the contest and you can be entered to win all of their books--TEN signed books in total! 

Here's why the YA2U Team should come to MY hometown!
San Diego
Because have you seen my city?! We could have the event right next to the beach!

But really, San Diego should host it. We're a fantastic city. We're kind and welcoming and have a surprisingly rich reading and young adult culture. People talk about our beaches and surfers and laid-back attitude accents, but what you don't see are the books we're all carrying with us, too. There's nothing like laying out on the sand with a novel in your hands.

Even though there are a lot of young adult authors here (Debra Driza, Kirsten Hubbard, Kiersten White, Shannon Messenger - to name a few), San Diego often gets passed by since we're next to larger cities. I can't tell you how many times I've been told "No, we're not going to there - but we are coming to LA, and that's close!" Sure, maybe LA is close (if a 3 hour drive without traffic is close, anyway), but it misses out on being in San Diego! America's Finest City! We are sunny and gorgeous and relaxed and always ready to help you with directions or give a recommendation of where to go/what to do. And I would be more than ready to help all these authors with their first experience of a true fish taco or California burrito.

Why should the YA2U Team come to your hometown (SAN DIEGO)? Why not join in the fun today and share with others about this program and your hometown. The more votes your town gets, the closer you are to having your very own personal tour stop! Vote for YOUR town here!

And if you help spread the word, you can also participate in the book giveaway. Tell them that you learned about YA2U from me and we both get extra entries in the contest!

*in case it's not clear, I altered the "template" a bit and stuck in some influence, because SAN DIEGO is totally awesome. And you should vote for it.

    Thinking about time limitations these loans are specifically designed above an obligation free of charge
    platform. As such, these are kept totally free of charge
    from credential checksums. Difficulties such as defaults, arrears, bankruptcy, CCJs and even IVAs are not thought to be right
    here. Additional, there are also no collaterals associated with these loans.
    There is minimal paper perform needed on the part of borrower.
