Win Books, Critiques, Swag and More During READ OR WRITE ANYWHERE!


Prizes for readers and writers alike!

To celebrate our love of reading and writing, I’ve teamed up with the YA Chicks and many participating authors on a global campaign to encourage readers, writers, students, and teachers to share pictures all of the places—both ordinary and extraordinary—where they are reading and writing. Sounds fun, right?  

So join us by taking part in a 


33 winners will receive books
16 schools/teachers will win Skype visits
16 writers will receive query and/or chapter critiques
2 Winners will receive swag!

 Every author participating in this campaign is giving away books, critiques, swag and/or Skype visits, including a chance to win a copy of my recent debut WHERE THE STAIRCASE ENDS. All you have to do is guess where we are reading or writing and enter to win.

So are you ready?

Drum roll….

My roof deck in this city is my most favorite place to write!
Can you guess where I am? 

Clue #1: If I moved to the left, you'd see the island where Al Capone used to "live"

Clue #2: There are delicious Dungeness crabs living in that bay behind me!

Clue #3: The cloudy sky behind me? This time of year it's sometimes called the "June Gloom" or "May Gray."

Clue #4: I left my heart here (literally, because I never left!)

Clue #5: Some people think that Rice-a-Roni is a treat for people who live here.

Once you’ve figured out where I’m writing head over to the YA Chicks site and:

Officially enter the giveaway by inputting each author’s name and your guesses about our locations. Every author location you guess correctly increases your chances to win. 

For even more chances, post a picture of yourself reading or writing on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #ReadOrWriteAnywhere (must have the hashtag). 

For writer prize packs:

Post pictures of yourself writing in a fun location on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ReadOrWriteAnywhere. Then follow the directions on the Rafflecopter giveaway to let us know you did it. 

For even more chances, gather your writer friends together and post a group shot with the hashtag #ReadOrWriteAnywhere (must have the hashtag). And hey, since you're already together, why not host a write-a-thon?

For teacher prize packs:

Post pictures of your class reading or writing on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ReadOrWriteAnywhere (must have the hashtag). 

Then let us know you did it when you enter the Rafflecopter. If you don't have a Twitter or Instagram, you can email your picture directly with the picture pasted directly into the email (no attachments--we won't open them) AND the subject, “Read or Write Anywhere.” 

You can also check out the YA Chicks Read or Write Anywhere lesson plan, available on their site

Now, what are you waiting for? Get out there and READ OR WRITE ANYWHERE!
