The Marissa Meyer Signing ++ GIVEAWAY!!


  So being the complete unprepared mess that I have been lately, I forgot my camera and my phone ended up trying to cover my behind!! Yup, it was a total fail in the blogger department but I got a small video clip below to share and then I will tell you a little about the before the clip that you see and some of the stuff that really stuck out :)

  To start before I give you all of the great stuff., I am going to start with the awesome Cress:


  How seriously awesome is that?!  I swear when Marissa comes back for Winter (I am wishful thinking... Positive in, positive out and all that jazz) I am SO going to go to the signing as Scarlet!!!  Ya, I will be that awesome :)  Anyway here is a quick clip now...
 

video 

  Okay and I normal don't upload video's so I seriously hope that worked!! I am the least tech savvy blogger I know, I swear!!  I applaud you guys for hanging in there with me!! I also partially blame the video confusion on blogger and its special screen that leads me to believe that it is downloaded but the message at the top of the screen leads me to believe otherwise!!  

  Anyway, Marissa was super awesome!  This is the end of the clip that I managed to take with my phone before it went all almost dead on me.  Totally awesome end but the entire signing was amazing and Marissa (if you didn't know) LOVES Sailor Moon!!  Sailor Moon should be a favorite of everyone's but for Marissa, it is basically what got the ball rolling in her writing career.  It was her love of the show and the fan fiction that she wrote that started it all (you can still find some of it online btw).  So, back to the point between Sailor Moon and Nanowrimo her writing took off.  No her first works weren't The Lunar Chronicles but in the end Nanowrimo was the start of the series.
   
  I am not going to write a novel and bore you because there is no way I can make everything Marissa said as amazing as when she said it, nor could I do it without boring you I am sure... 



  If you ever get to see Marissa make sure she tells a Fairy Tale!  She is so animated and fun that you are sucked in!! I know most of the originals but I admit the one she couldn't tell (Red Riding Hood) is one I don't know... So now I will look it up and start a new addiction myself!!



SO... I was unsure if I was going to be able to give these babies away because Scarlet was
one of my first ACRs from Raincoast and well Cress blew my mind...  However, seeing I have
finished copies I decided I should not be greedy, and the post cards match the books (they are 
signed too btw) and seeing Marissa was so kind as to give me two pieces of swag, I decided to 
share the wealth as well!!  Sadly because I am a student and broke and my other giveaway was
INT this one can only be US/CAN :(  But hang in there because Indie Girl March starts in a couple
of days and there are LOTS of INT giveaways!!!!  So below is what is up for grabs!! 




GOOD LUCK!!!

  4. I'd love to win, because I keep hearing how wonderful this series is. The library only has book one, and I never checked it out, because I know I'd want to read the others as well. I'd definitely check it out, if I won these, and read it all quickly. ☺

    I also like that they're about fairytales as well.
