Bringing YA To You + Giveaway

If the title and the button wasn't enough to tell you SOMETHING, then here's the basic run down of what is going down. Beth Revis, along with Victoria Schwab, Marissa Meyer, Marie Lu, and Megan Shepherd are teaming up to-- Bring YA to You.

Do you live in a city where you kind of get the feeling that nothing ever really happens? I've had first hand experience of wishing so hard for an author to come to my hometown. These authors here will be collecting votes starting today until February 15, so just hop on over and put your vote in (for Edmonton...)!

You may have a few questions such as:

Why should you vote for Edmonton?

We have an amazing set of bloggers, all links here, and probably even more we have yet to discover! If you vote for us and you also live in Edmonton, you also benefit from this!

However, if you don't live in this city, let me tell you a little bit about it! Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta, which is a province in Canada. We have many fun festivals throughout the year, but not much that is book related. We also have the shopping centre ever, so if you ever stop by our city, make sure to go to a mall called West Edmonton Mall! Within that mall exists the largest indoor amusement park, water park, mini golf and also an ice arena!

The water park in West Edmonton Mall! There's even a wave pool!
The ice rink!!
Roller coaster in Galaxy Land called the Mind Bender!

As I've already mentioned, the bloggers here in Edmonton are great, so go check them all out! I'm sure we'd all be extremely grateful if we were the winning city. Thanks in advance, even if we are your "second choice" city.

Why should the team of YA2U come to your hometown?

For this, I have no answer, but you probably do! Know what you can do? Write a blog post about it, or post it on Facebook or Twitter! Just spread the word! You can vote for your hometown here. If you help spread the word, you can also participate in this book giveaway.

  1. Great post, Leanne! Thanks for showcasing Edmonton! :)

  2. Yay Leanne! I really want them to come to Edmonton. I'm totally going to put up flyers where I can to get non-bloggers to vote.

  3. No problem! :) I was so excited when I got the e-mail, haha.

  4. I'll probably be putting them up in the library! :)

  5. Woohoo, great job on the post, Leanne!! Even though we've already seen two of the five authors, I would totally want to meet them again, in addition to the other three!! I really hope we can make this happen!

  6. Thanks, Eilidh! It would be awesome!! :)

  7. Oh wow what a great post, Leanne! Our city does rock and you did a really great job at showcasing that. I hadn't heard about this before but I did hop over and vote! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Thanks, Jenni! I was so excited when I got the e-mail, haha. I'll try to get more people to vote once school starts up again! Thanks for voting.
