Want to get your hands on the very first ARC of VICIOUS?

So last week, this happened…

And several someones on Twitter immediately said YOU NEED TO GIVE AWAY AN ARC!!!


And then I realized that the 6-month mark just happened, like, a week ago, and we are now officially within that window.

Which was itself a little scary.



The first ARC!

Like, EVER.

I’m back on multiple deadlines, so let’s keep this simple. The giveaway will be open to US/Canada, and run from now until Friday April 5th at 9pm EST.

To enter, you simply need to tweet, blog, or tumbl about the book (please use the hashtag #VICIOUSbook). Then post a comment here with a link. You can enter (you need to comment each time) ONCE per day. That’s a potential of five entries per person.

See? Easy peasy.

    AAAHHHHHHH!!!! I would simply be HONORED to be able to read this before it comes out!!! If I’m being honest, as excited as I was for publication day for THE ARCHIVED, I’m actually looking forward to VICIOUS even MORE! It’s more along the lines of my traditional reads, ie, what I’ve been reading for the 28 years – oh, alright, fine, the 37 years of my life…and it. Looks. So. GOOD! (By the way, I’d intended to comment when Tor had the post up with the evolution of the cover art for the book but never got a chance to do so….but just wanted to say how AWESOME I think the cover is and how great the book sounds!! Yay!)

    Here’s the link to my tweet for today:
