CONTEST-- "The Eternal Ones"!

I've been promising it for weeks, and it's finally here! Read the rules below and then enter for your chance to win a copy of the upcoming YA book, The Eternal Ones

Title: The Eternal Ones
Author: Kristen Miller
Publisher/Pub. Date: Razorbill (August 10, 2010)
Summary (
Haven Moore can't control her visions of a past with a boy called Ethan and a life in New York that ended in fiery tragedy. In our present, she designs beautiful dresses for her classmates with her best friend Beau. Dressmaking keeps her sane, since she lives with her widowed and heartbroken mother in her tyrannical grandmother's house in Snope City, a tiny town in Tennessee. Then an impossible group of coincidences conspire to force her to flee to New York, to discover who she is, and who she was.

In New York, Haven meets Iain Morrow and is swept into an epic love affair that feels both deeply fated and terribly dangerous. Iain is suspected of murdering a rock star and Haven wonders, could he have murdered her in a past life? She visits the Ouroboros Society and discovers a murky world of reincarnation that stretches across millennia. Haven must discover the secrets hidden in her past lives, and loves, before all is lost and the cycle begins again.

Look for my review in the next few weeks! ~TBQ




I've got one (1) copy to send off to a lucky winner!

Here's the run down on the rules:

  • You must be a resident of the U.S. or Canada. Sorry for my readers that are excluded by this! However, PO boxes are OK for this contest. :)

  • Please, when you leave a comment, leave your email as well. You will not be spammed by me, nor (I hope!) any of my fellow readers, and I am not going to use your email for anything bad-- it's just easier to contact the winner this way, and helps cut back on people that "enter" but never show up again, to claim a prize.

  • OR, if you don't feel comfortable leaving an email in the comment section, then you can send in your entry another way-- by emailing me at Put "The Eternal Ones Contest Entry" in the subject line. Include the same information in the email as you would in the comment section (see the entry details below for complete instructions).

Finally! Now that we've got some of the guidelines out of the way, here comes the information you've been wanting--how to get entries for the contest:

  • For ONE (1) entry: Leave a comment on this post, with email address, (or send an email with your entry, as stated above). It's that easy!

  • For TWO (2) ADDITIONAL entries: Post about this contest on your blog, Facebook, Twitter-- what ever! But, to get the two points, you must leave a link in your comment that proves you posted this information somewhere. The post does not have to be fancy, but give your readers/friends the link to my blog, the basic information of what's up for grabs, the deadline, etc. Beyond that, it's up to you-- be creative, if that's what you like to do! Help me to spread the word, and in return get two bonus entries. Maximum bonus entries for this: 2. You can post on more than one site, but I will only count the one. Sorry, but I don't want to spend all day visiting sites and adding up tally marks for each person!

  • For ONE (1) ADDITIONAL entries: Be a follower of my blog already!  ;-) Just put "already following" or something like that in your comment/email to let me know to add the entry.

  • For ONE (1) ADDITIONAL entry: Don't worry, new followers are going to be rewarded as well! After clicking on the "follow" button on my sidebar, simply put 'new follower' in your comment/email. If I can see your name on my list of followers, you'll get the entry.

That means that if you did everything listed above, you could get up to 4 entries in this contest!

*Updated* DEADLINE: This  contest will run from today (August 16th, 2010) until 10 p.m., Sunday September 5th, 2010!

Winner will then be chosen by, and I will post the winner's name here on TBQ's Book Palace, NO LATER THAN Tuesday afternoon (September 7th).
The winner will have ONE week from the day their name is posted on this blog to email me with their contact information. If the winner does not contact me in that amount of time, or does not answer back to the ONE email I will attempt to send them, then I will put the remaining names back into and pick another winner. Same rules will apply to the new winner-- one week from the date my post goes live.

Thanks again to Razorbill Books (part of Penguin Books), and especially Nicole, for helping to set this up!

Until Next Time,
