Last Wednesday, Logan and Zach held the first ever (but no way it'll be the last) #SHADEboys dance party. During the two-hour party, readers posted nearly 80 of their favorite dance videos. I still haven't seen them all, but there were many, many highlights--everything from movie scenes to flash mobs to random dudes in their underwear. You can see all of them on Logan's Favorites list.
Everyone who posted a video gets a Team Kilt bookplate. To claim yours, send your mailing address and Twitter username to melissa AT jerismithready DOT com and mention you won a TeamKilt bookplate at the SHADEboys dance party. Don't worry--she won't think it's too weird.
And the winner of an iTunes gift playlist of the SHINE soundtrack (unveiled at the end of the dance party) is... @Poochylover! Thanks to everyone who took part in this completely crazy party. SHADE readers are the most wackadoodle folks on the planet, hands down.
There's one more SHINE celebration contest open, and that's the Review Contest, which ends Friday. Here are the rules (copied and pasted from the original post):
- Reviews must appear between Monday, April 23 and Friday, May 11. Reviews can appear on blogs, book sites like Goodreads or Library Thing, or online booksellers such as Amazon or BN.com.
- Each review gets you one entry. For example, if you post Goodreads and Amazon reviews, plus a review on your blog, that's 3 entries.
- Blog reviews must include the SHINE cover, a link to my website and Twitter page, and the release date.
- Email a link to your review to melissa AT jerismithready DOT com--please note it's to my awesome assistant MELISSA, not me.
- If you've already posted a review on your blog, don't worry--you're still eligible! Just put up another post between April 23 and May 11 announcing the release (please include the cover plus a link to my website and Twitter page), and link to your early review.
- If you hold a giveaway with your review/feature, you'll get five extra entries for each SHADE trilogy book you give away (i.e., SHADE, SHIFT, and/or SHINE).
- International entries welcome!
- Drawing will take place using a random number generator, and the 3 winners will be notified by email on or before Friday, May 18.
- You can bring as many folks as you want to the Skype chat (friends, family, book club, library group, soccer team, karate class), but no recordings, please.
Join me Wednesday night at 9pm Eastern at Kilt & Keeley for a live chat. Come prepared to talk all about SHINE--spoilers are allowed and in fact encouraged! There will be prizes--oh yes, there will be prizes. Sign up here for a reminder.
