Bring YA to You!

Have you ever wished that a big YA book tour would make a stop in your hometown? 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 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 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:


And they want to have an event in your home town! 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! 
Could it be because I want to lure Victoria Schwab, Megan Shepherd, and Beth Revis to Southern California? *shifty eyes* Yes, there's that. I mean, it's no great secret that I'm in love with Victoria's writing style and Beth's AtU trilogy has managed to blow my mind during books one and two. I've actually just finished reading The Madman's Daughter and I know I'll be picking up the second book.

Did I mention that I already have a bookstore in mind? They're a friendly, nerdy group of booksellers that always have a recommendation for you. Oh, and they're an independent bookstore. Which bookstore am I talking about? The oh so wonderful Mysterious Galaxy (Redondo Beach), of course! Go ahead, go take a look at their page for the store. They've got a great selection of YA and if the lovely ladies of YA2U liked, they could even get some writing done in the cafe--which is attached to the bookstore. (And they serve beer and wine at said cafe too. Did I mention that?)

To summarize: Oh dear authors and voters, let's put Los Angeles up as one of the cities and hey, while you're voting, maybe pick Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach! Why? Because they're an amazing independent bookstore with a fantastic staff!

Why should the YA2U Team come to your hometown? 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!
