The Great A. S. King Book Giveaway in Honor of The Teen’s Birthday
Seventeen years ago today I gave birth to my first child and it was one of the greatest moments of my life. At the time, I had already been a teen librarian for about 10 years and I wondered what it would be like to one day have a teen who could and be a part of my teen program and I’m not going to lie – it’s been pretty awesome!! I love this kid. She’s smart, compassionate and SHE LOVES READING! It’s been a great joy to get to read, share and talk about books with her. In case you couldn’t tell, I freakin’ adore this kid. It’s a genuine honor to get to be her mom.
Earlier this year she decided that author A. S. King was her favorite living author and she went through and read the entire works of A. S. King. You can read all about that here, including what she thinks of each book. I got to take this journey with her and it was a year full of remarkable moments and great conversations for us surrounding one author and one of our favorite things that we share – books! This reading journey has meant so much to me and I will treasure it always.
Edgar Allan Poe is her favorite dead author for those of you wondering. She was pretty excited when they read a Poe short story last year and when the English teacher asked if anyone had ever read Poe she got to reply that she had read his entire works.
So today in celebration of my kid I’m going to be giving away a complete set of A. S. King paperbacks and a pre-order of her upcoming middle grade book The Year We Fell From Space, which comes out in October. Please note, the paperback of Dig doesn’t come out until April of next year but I’m going to pre-order it as part of the giveaway. Read below for more information. If you are selected as a winner, I will contact you to ask for your mailing address and order the books online and have them mailed directly to you via Amazon. This giveaway is open to U. S. residents only please and one winner will be selected randomly by Rafflecopter. I checked on Amazon and it looks like paperback copies are available as mentioned below.
