FROZEN preorder contest!

I can’t believe I’m already drafting this post. I feel like Taken launched barely a month or two ago, but somehow nearly an entirely year has passed. And that means Frozen‘s release is right around the corner.

I have a few events coming up to celebrate. If you’re in either area, it would be great to see you!


Barnes & Noble
110 Albany Turnpike, Canton, CT 06019
I’ll be reading from Frozen, answering reader questions,
and signing copies of both Taken and Frozen


Gibson’s Bookstore
45 S Main Street, Concord, NH 03301
Page Morgan (The Beautiful and the Cursed and The Lovely and the Lost)
and I will discuss our sequels and sign copies for readers

I’m really excited to see Frozen entering the world, and I want to give a little something to everyone who pre-orders a copy. And yes, I mean EVERYONE. Whether you live in the US or overseas, if you pre-order a hardcover or ebook of Frozen by April 14th, I’ll send you the following swag:

frozen preorder giveaway swag

one (1) signed Frozen bookmark (two shown here so you can see both sides) and
two (2) Taken OR Frozen stickers (selection made at random, image may vary)

From those entries, I’ll also pick one (1) grand prize winner, who will receive the following:

» 1 signed and personalized paperback of TAKEN
» 1 annotated ARC of FROZEN (author notes and insights scribbled in the margins)
» 3 recent YA novels that include some of my favorite and memorable winter scenes: Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Laini Taylor), Lovely, Dark and Deep (Amy McNamara), and Shadow and Bone (Leigh Bardugo)



Preorder a copy of Frozen (hardcover or ebook) by 11:59 PM on April 14th and fill out the form below. No really, that’s it. Simply fill out the form letting me know you’ve ordered your copy, and you’re guaranteed a swag pack, as well as a chance to win the grand prize. I’m not requiring a proof of purchase for swag packs, but I will ask to see your receipt if your name is drawn as the grand prize winner, so hold on to it! Again, this is open internationally.

Lastly, there’s no limit to how many times you can enter. If you buy three copies of Frozen, you can fill out the form three separate times, and you’ll receive THREE swag packs. Also, I love you for buying so many copies.

Here’s the form to enter. If it doesn’t load for some reason, click here.



I want to say thanks, in advance, for all the support you’ve shown my books/series. Writing professionally is a dream come true, and it wouldn’t be possible without readers. So thank you. I hope we cross paths at an event some day, because I owe you a hug.

  1. Yay, so exciting to see your sequel starting to gather the wind under its wings! Lovely contest. I’m curious — did you design the bookmarks yourself, given your designing chops? 😀 Or does HarperTeen do them for their authors?

    1. I did design my own bookmarks, and as far as I’m aware, most authors do the same (or hire a designer to do it for them). I’m sure there are certain cases where publishers make additional make additional promotional materials for their authors/books (probably for HUGE titles–Divergent, John Green’s books, etc), but in most cases I think they stick to book production, distribution of arcs to libraries/journals/etc, and online advertising.

    OMG it’s on my birthday! Different time lines tho. Can I also join this contest by buying signed editions from Gibson’s? I can’t wait! Asdfghjkl!!!

    1. Happy birthday!

      Yes, a signed copy purchased through Gibson’s will qualify as well! It won’t ship to you until 4/15 or later, after I’ve stopped by the store to sign it, but as long as you place your order with them by 4/14, it will count for the preorder contest! 🙂
