Mega SWEET EVIL Giveaway!

Before we begin, for your viewing and giggling pleasure,
I have the official Sweet Evil Book Trailer from HarperTeen:


We're getting close to the May 1st release date, and I'm so excited that I want to do a giveaway!  I had already planned to give away two signed copies of the final book as soon as I receive them (which means winners could possibly have it before the release date.) But then I got a message from the publishers saying they have five extra ARCs they'd like me to give away, too!  I also have a handful of signed bookmarks that I'd love to put in your hot little hands. So lots of chances to win. The two signed copies and bookmarks are up for grabs internationally, and the five ARCs are available to those in the US.


Here's what you have to do:

~ I've created a quick reading survey. There are NO right answers - it's just for fun, and I guess I'm kinda curious about the answers.  :)  TAKE SURVEY NOW. 

~ Leave a comment on this post letting me know that you completed the survey.  And if you feel the need to explain any of your answers, you're free to do so in the comments, hehe.

That's it!  I should probably make you do something like a scavenger hunt or follow me on all of my social media accounts or, you know, something that requires creativity and time, but I'm a slacker (and a teensy bit busy preparing for the blog tour...deets to come). Sometimes easy is just good.

This contest will only last 24 hours!  Winners will be announced right here tomorrow at 9PM Eastern (along with survey results).
Big hugs and best of luck,

  1. I did the survey and good questions

  2. I took the quiz, although number three's answer is skewed, because it totally depends on the book. Some books need romance, but others are better without. *shrugs*

    Thanks for the epic giveaway!!!

  17. Ahhh thanks so much for this giveaway! <3 Awesome survey! Though I agree with Christina, it ultimately depends. Sometimes I LOVE a good romance but other times I love a book that completely lacks it. I love it..but I don't necessarily need it? I don't know if that makes sense. :P

    My name should come up as Alice S. Thanks so much for the giveaway again! <3 I can't wait to read Sweet Evil!

  20. Took the survey. Hard questions!! :) I love both character-driven and plot-driven, depending on the book. I'm also a fan of love triangles if they are written well.

  48. I just took the survey. I answered that I had read Sweet Evil, but really I've only read a chapter or two, back when it was on inkpop. Even back then I remember thinking that the writing was really good. Now I feel proud that I picked it. :)

  50. Doneeee! You won't mind if I start blabbing on about my reasons for choosing the answers I chose..right? hahaa...anyway, for the "love triangles question" my answer would usually be "I hate them, but I make exceptions for ones that are written well" :)And I pretty much like EVERY supernatural creature :D Yepp...that's all from me! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win & making it international!

  51. Great questions! I had to really think about my answer on the favorite fiction question. I like the twists and turns, but tone and word choice is important, too. All of the above?! And the paranormal creatures? Edward will never ruin vampires for me - first there was Lestat and then Eric Northman. *faints*

    Thanks for the fantastic giveaway. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Took the survey and I liked the questions you asked. I'm dying to read Sweet Evil, so I really hope I win!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thanks so much for the giveaway! I am so in love with Sweet Evil (and Kaidan) :-) that it's killing me to have to return Pam's ARC back to her and wait a few more weeks to pick up my finished copy.

    The question about romance in a story had me torn. I love romance but only when it's worked in well and is key to the story. It bugs me when a book tosses in a romance just for the sake of having a romance and it seems to pop out of nowhere.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow...that was one hard and fast survey!! >.< I loooove love triangles but it's not if they're well written or not...but if they fit the story...as well as the kind of writing I enjoy the most...I love being kept on edge but I LOVE it when the writer's imagination and talent shows on the words he/she uses when writing :D
    I have YET YET YET to read Sweet Evil and thanks to a blogger now I'm DYING! *-* I NEED it!
    Thanks for this!!!
    ~bookmarks, here I come for you~

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thank you for the giveaway!

    For me, a book has to have (heavy) romance for me to enjoy and love it! Also, about the kind of writing question - that was really hard but I had to go with Commercial: character driven - just because I tend to care for the characters more than the plot or writing :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thank you so much for this giveaway! I've wanted to read Sweet Evil ever since I heard about in on a blog a couple of weeks ago and I'm so glad I decided to check in on your website today! I had a relatively easy time answering all the questions, until I got to the question asking which style of fiction writing I enjoyed most. In the end I chose 'character-driven', because the chemistry between the characters and their relationships has always been really important to me, although of course, I enjoy a riveting plot and smooth, poetic descriptions. Anyway, thanks for the survey and giveaway, and even if I don't win I'll definitely be purchasing a copy, because this is a book that belongs to be on my bookshelf!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Took the survey!
    I had trouble deciding between the styles of fiction question. My true answer would have been ALL of them. It depends on each book.

    Great trailer and I can't wait for the book to be released! :)

  58. I struggled with the last one. I like all types of boys!! ;)

  61. Thanks so much for the giveaway! I just completed the survey! I am absolutely dying to read the finished copy of SWEET EVIL. I read a bit of it before, lo those many years ago when it was titled ANGEL PROPHECY and I added it to my picks! It's so inspirational to see an inkie out there -- published! I wish you the best in all endeavors!

  62. Great survey and questions! Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I simply cannot wait for Sweet Evil - It looks so great, and I really love your cover :)

    For 3 - I don't really care if it has romance or not - I love it if it has it, I usually love it if it doesn't.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Thanks for having this giveaway! :) And the survey was fun - even though most of my answers I had to choose 'I love them all!' because I have trouble picking one answer :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Took the survey as Rachelle. Probably should have put that in the actual survey. lol

    I absolutely love the dark and mysterious guys, they're totally swoon worthy.

    Thanks for the giveaway and I hope I win because Sweet Evil was awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Took the survey and had so much fun answering it. Also a big thanks for making it International. I'm absolutely dying to read Sweet Evil. I've been dying ever since I saw the gorgeous cover. :)

    Only winning a copy will revive me? (Ok, that was lame, but still)

  67. Just took the survey! =) Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  68. Just finished the survey!!
    Nice questions on there! :)
    Thank you for such a lovely giveaway and chance to win. Sweet Evil sounds really good. Especially from the reviews I've been reading about! Can't wait to get my hands on it!

    About my answers, honestly a book doesn't always need to be focused on a love interest. As long as the plot is interesting and keeps you pulled in, what else could you really ask for? * well a little romance always adds a little spice!*

    Thanks again!
    Here's to hoping for a win! ;P

    ReplyDelete
  69. I just took the survey! I mostly picked I love them all for the answer because I couldn't choose!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Finished the survey. Really good questions! Thanks for making the giveaway international, very often I get all excited about people giving away awesome stuff only to see a note at the end saying 'oh by the way it's US only...'

    About my answers:
    In the paranormal characters question: I'm getting into Reaper stories at the moment... but faeries and vamps are still my faves.
    Styles of fiction: I ticked literary because enjoy imagery and like seeing an author choose their words carefully to paint a picture in my mind, but too much description can get tiring. I need well-developped characters, too! I'm not much of a plot-focused person though, I don't mind a slow moving book. If the writing is too fast-paced it leaves me a bit breathless - give those poor characters some time to cope with what's going on, haha ^^''

    I really hope I win because I can't wait to read your book :)

  77. I finished the survey and thanks for the giveaway : )

  78. I filled out the survey - good questions! The one tht was the hardest was what kind of book usually like to read. I do love a good plot-driven book, but character driven books can be just as good (and with good characters they can be better!). And literary reads can be amazing as well!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Fun questions :-D

    I know. I've already read your awesome book, but it was Kelley's, and I want my own, lol.

    And thanks for the awesome, international giveaway :D

  83. Took the survey.
    Question #5 I picked other because I like hauntings and ghosts.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I just took the survey :) Awesome giveaway. This is a really fun way to do a giveaway I have to say. Loved the questions!

    I was really stuck on question 3 though because I love books with a romantic element but if it's not there I don't mind it either. And then I was thinking to myself, "wait a minute, most of the books you are reading right now, have a romance" LOL.

    And I might be in the minority here, but I always love the shy and sweet guy in YA that has like a quiet strength. Granted, I usually fall for them all sometimes but my immediate reaction is to be a bit skeptical about the dark and mysterious guy until he has proven to have some depth and have no traces of being a jerk.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Those were great questions. It will be interesting to see the results when they are posted. =) Thanks for the giveaway!

  86. Just found you and your giveaway through Twitter (social media works!) Thank you for sharing the extra ARCs; if I win, is it okay to put the ARC up on my online auction, Pens for Paws? It's a fundraiser with writers and artists for Fat Kitty City. And happy release day May 1!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I just took the survey! It was short, but fun. And argh! You made me choose my perfect type of love interest. That was some serious deciding, yes.

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)
