First ARC Giveaway - My Christmas Gift

Pardon the "just woke up" look - me in my pj's with my first arc
A while back I received my first ARC, which I promptly read and marked all over with editing notes so I couldn't give that one away. I've now received word from my editor that a lovely box of fresh ARCs will arrive soon, and I'd love more than anything to get one to YOU in time for Christmas!
**JINGLES BELLS**
Since we don't have time for a full-blown cool contest, this is going to be a good, old-fashioned name drawing.  This contest IS open internationally, so everyone please feel free to enter (once each!).  Write your name and email address in the comments. If you prefer not to make your email public, write your name in the comments and send your email address to me at wendyhigginswrites@gmail.com. The drawing is open until 6:00PM Eastern this Sunday, December 18th. My daughter will draw a name that evening, and I will email the winner to get your mailing address.  If all goes well, your Sweet Evil galley copy will be in the mail the next morning and you'll have it in time for the holiday!  That's right!  I love you SO much that I'm willing to stand in the atrocious postal lines to send this book to you.  :)

Thanks for the love and support, guys. You all are the best!
Hugs,

  51. To Wendy's daughter,

    If you're reading this, you will know how much I want this book. 1) Because your mother wrote this. 2) Because the book I'M SURE is going to be awesome and a massive hit. And 3) Because it has one of the best covers ever. I'm totally not sucking up to you because of my 'wanting' but I just thought I should let you know WHY I want this book so so much. *whistles while walking away*

    P.S. Pretty please (not begging . . . okay I'm sort of begging here) pick me! ;)

    Anyway, thank you for the awesome giveaway! <3

  52. Wow! I can't believe all these entries! And I think y'all are trying to make me cry by saying all this sweet stuff. :) Thank you, thank you, thank you! And good luck. Autumn will be drawing the names from a bowl. Otherwise she'd pick based on who has the most pink in their picture, lol. She is a sucker for flattery, though, especially from boys...and she's only five! *sigh*
