A Cool Video and book giveaways!

by Brittany Geragotelis

Hey all! So, this came out a few weeks ago, but I was just watching it again (because I insisted that my boyfriend watch it. Then I insisted he help me make a music video of my own, since his background is in film, he's already produced two feature-lengths and his job requires him to make and get people to watch various YouTube videos. Makes sense that he'd want to help me, too, right?) and figured if by some off chance you hadn't already seen it, you should.

Anyway, there are two reasons why I LOVE this video. The first is that it was made by the author of one of my favorite books of the year, Sisters Red. Jackson Pearce is talented, creative and an inspiring author (Don't believe me, check out my interview with her here), so I'm pretty sure I'd love anything she produced. But the second reason I love this is because she remade a music video as a way to combat writer's block. And man, can the girl move!

Love. It.

How awesome was that? You know what else is awesome? The fact that I'm doing a book giveaway! I have a bunch of ARCs of cool, upcoming books that I'd love to pass on to you! So, here's what we're going to do. Leave your name in the comments below (above, wherever), along with the appropriate points you've earned. Your name will go into a hat according to how many points you've got (in other words, your odds of winning go up, the more points you have), and winners will be chosen at random.
