My publisher surprised me today by mailing me a box of Blue Lily, Lily Blue ARCs — I had no idea such things were going to exist, nor that I was going to get them, but now I intend to give them away.
Just post on your blog (blogspot, Tumblr, wordpress, whatever), Twitter, or Facebook status one reason why you enjoyed reading the Raven Cycle, and then post the link to the status update (if you don’t know how to do this, Google is your friend) into the Rafflecopter contest thingy. You can find that, and the rest of the fine print, on this blog post:http://maggiestiefvater.com/blog/blue-lily-lily-blue-contest/
