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!
YA Book Events are always bigger in Texas. Here in Houston we have a large number of YA fans and we have a number of YA Bloggers like Kate of http://www.exlibriskate.com, Christin of www.portraitofabook.com, Yara of Once Upon A Twilight, Amy of http://djlibrariandishes.blogspot.com, Kristina of http://ladybugstorytime.blogspot.com, Sarah of http://sarahsbookslife.blogspot.com, and many more! We have teachers and librarians who bring students to book events. And let's not forget we have wonderful, indie bookstores like Blue Willow Bookshop and Murder by the Book that are always hosting book events that bring in a full house! If you are looking for the best Mexican food around then look no further than Ninfa's, Lupe Tortillas, Pappasitos, or Chuy's! Also we love cupcakes, so just a note to the authors...there could be cupcakes in your future! The great thing about coming to Houston is that Austin is just three hours away and Dallas is also just a few hours north, which would make it easy to hit all three cities.
