Giveaway! Also, I have a book!

***This giveaway is now closed.  Thanks all!***

This came in the mail for me over the weekend:

It’s my very, very first ever finished copy of my very first ever published book.  It’s gorgeous.  I love it.   And there’s absolutely nothing I’d rather do with it than give it away.  Because, really, I’ve read the thing.  A lot.  And most of you haven’t.  I can’t tell you how excited I am that in less than a month, you all can read it, winner or not.

But you want this copy, right?  I know you do.  So leave me a comment.  Let’s say you’re on the run from a bounty hunter.  Tell me what you’re wanted for, and where you go.  The more detail, the better.  (Winner will be chosen by random number generator, though, so don’t sweat it too much.)  I’ll pick a winner after next Monday, September 17th.  (Or, you know, the number generator will, at my behest.)  Be sure to leave your mail in the mail field, so that I can contact you to send you this very copy of the book.  I’ll even sign it, if you’d like, which would make it the first book I ever sign.

Also, just to remind you, you’re invited to my release event at the King’s English on October 2nd.  Join the facebook group if you’d like and let us know you’re coming.

    I’m going to go for this just for the chance to have the first ever signed book by you!!! Yay! If I was a fugitive, I think it would be for using magic where it’s forbidden and I’d run away to the Order of the Phoenix for protection.

    Congrats on the book, Janci! Can’t wait to read the final version.

  2. Kathleen Smith

    Ohhh, first signed book, festive. I would be on the run from a bounty hunter for murder of course, civilians just never seem to understand that demon hunting is hardly murder. I’ve been wanting to take a vacation for awhile, so Florida or California probably. 😉

    I would be on the run for doing what so many wish they could do, but wont. I would go after the monsters of this world. Murderers/rapist/Serial Killers – No more will they prey on us and we be afraid to LIVE. Now it’s my turn to make them the PREY. And since this in itself is considered ‘illegal’ I will be on the run from the law, but will they catch me or will I always be 1 step ahead?

    BTW – would LOVE a signed copy.

    I would definitely be on the run for that time I led the police on a slow speed chase, through a residential neighborhood, while riding a motor scooter. I evaded them by throwing smoke bombs in front of their vehicles and escaping to the sewer…never to be seen again.

    I’d probably go to Europe, because I’ve always thought it would be cool to live there, but also because I’d love to learn how to speak with a British accent :0)

    Thanks for the chance! I can’t wait to read the book!

  5. Stephanie Ziegler

    First let me ask…how does it smell? I LOVE the smell of books!

    I LOVE Hawaii so I would island hop to evade the law while getting a tan and partaking in the culture and spirit of Hawaii. My crime? Robbing a bank of millions of dollars.

  6. Sarah O'Reilly

    Hmmm… Why would a bounty hunter be after me. Well I did almost get arrested in Cuba once so let’s go with that story. Corporate espionage. Allegedly. Otherwise known as being a tourist and taking photos but what can you do? If I had to run away to somewhere other than home it’d have to be Australia. When else would I have an excuse to go somewhere so ridiculously far away.

    Congratulations on your first published book!

  7. Emily M.

    I would be on the run from the rare book thief police, for stealing first editions of Charlotte’s Web, Farenheit 451, and The Hobbit. I would go to Seattle and live under a pseudonym in a studio apartment overlooking the market, and there I would read my ill-gotten rare books and plot my next caper.

    Congratulations on your book–I would love to win a copy!

  8. Rachel L.

    I’m on the run because I stole all of the books and Godiva chocolate from my local Bookland store. Where am I going? To the nearest bookstore in Hershey, Pennsylvania. 😉

  9. Melissa Tosh

    It would probably be because i stole an armful of puppies and i would run away to England. By the way is this International giveaway?? I hope so 🙂 im in Aus. congrats on ur book 🙂

    I’ll probably wanted from getting in a bookstore and grabbing all the YA books I could see and have within my reach then I’m going to my enemy’s house and hide the books there, so when the time comes they will not find it on me or at my enemy’s house(esp.if he/she don’t know who’s my enemy right? lol)

  11. Debbie

    Congratulations Janci!!!

    I would be on the run from the quilt police, for breaking too many rules! I am on the run to a great hiding place that has a large studio with natural light and a design wall and all my fabric….so I can keep making my quilts!

    And, yes, I’d like my winning copy signed, please.

  12. Candice

    Hmmm … I would be on the run for harassing studio executives with my brilliant but unsolicited movie scripts, and I’d run to Kentucky because bounty hunting is illegal there, so it’d give me a chance to plan my next move while the bounty hunter tries to figure out how to get at me. 🙂

    I’d be wanted for hurting someone that was mean to my friends or family (totally justified, even if the law didn’t agree, I tell you!) I’d go to a private island in the Caribbean where I could play jungle princess and be very hard to find. But only if I could install flushing toilets. Otherwise, I’d go hide in Switzerland. Just because. 🙂

    I’m so excited for the book to be out!

  15. Kathy Cowley

    I probably would be on the run for stealing an artifact that either was going unwanted/unappreciated, or was being damaged in its current conditions. Like an ancient Egyptian comb or something. I would go on the run to Brazil, and move from one beach town to another, using my Portuguese skills to try to blend in.

  16. Nikki

    I’d be wanted for stealing large amounts of books,specifically ones just released. >:) I’d accidently hurt someone trying to stop me. Oops. He over reacted. Well.

    I’d probably go tO NY since there’s so many people (LESS CHANCE OF BEING CAUGHT) and since I just LOVE the place! XD

  17. Cathy

    If I’m wanted by a bounty hunter I’m sure it’s for some heinous crime I didn’t do, like plan a triple murder that was a result of a bank robbery gone awry, while being charged for abedding a minor and driving away in a stolen vehicle. But I didn’t do it I swear lol. But I would definitely be hiding some where very no where like the most random town in idaho, where there are enough people that I wouldn’t stick out like a sore thumb. I could go pick some potatoes or something hehe. How’s that for a story line lol.

    Cathy –
    omg that story has me laughing. I can’t wait to read your book even if I don’t win it here I will def be getting a copy asap!

  18. Kassiah

    I don’t even have anything as awesome as the rest of these replies. Can I just harbor the fugitives? I’ll just hope I win anyway:)

    Thanks! And Congratulations on your new book!

  19. Susan (Bloggin' 'bout Books)

    I’m a law-abiding citizen, so the only thing I can see me doing that would put a bounty hunter on my tail is kicking the heinie of someone who messed with one of my kids. Where would I hide? Out in the woods somewhere. Which would make the bounty hunter’s job a lot easier, incidentally, because I have no outdoor survival skills whatsoever. I would probably be dead within the week 🙁

    I’d love to win the book. Or, if you’re looking for book bloggers to review it, you’re always welcome to send a copy my way 🙂

    Multiple counts of vandalism from the time I snapped and started correcting bad grammar and punctuation on billboards. I’d go to Paris because 1) duh, it’s PARIS, 2) extradition between France and the US is a nightmare, and 3) I don’t notice grammar and punctuation issues as much in French, which would enable me to keep calm and go straight.

  21. Jenn

    Love the question!
    Wanted for: commandeering a shipment of Skittles because I LOVE them and of course eating ALL of them ;P
    Would hide away in: France!

    Jenn -running from the law 😉
