Thank you! ARC Giveaway

We hit 1,000 Twitter followers last week, and over 2,000 people on Goodreads! You guys are the best!

I want to thank you all of you for the love and support you've shown for The Paper Gods, INK, and me. :) It means so much to get the chance to know you, talk books with you, and to share the world of the Paper Gods with you.

If you missed the Sekrit Reveal, here's the news: INK has an ebook novella prequel, coming June 1, 2013! It's called SHADOW, and will be in both Katie and Tomo's POVs.

Add SHADOW to your Goodreads here:
Shadow (The Paper Gods, #0.5)

So! Let's have an ARC Giveaway to show my appreciation and thanks!

And now, the fabulous prizes:


Includes:

- one SIGNED ARC of INK
- two bags of Tomohiro's favorite tea, Genmai-cha (Brown Rice Tea) from Shizuoka, where INK takes place
- one package of Pocky
- one package of Pretz, one of Katie's favorite snacks
- one roll of soda-flavored Puccho candy

Food plays a big role in INK, so I hope you will enjoy these snacks as you read. ^_^

This giveaway is international, and open until January 18, 2013.

While you don't have to be a blogger to enter, I would so appreciate if you consider this a review copy--I'd love to know what you think of INK!


a Rafflecopter giveaway

Good luck! がんばってください♥

Maybe draw a mansion on the beach, but I am so bad cartoonist (and I know nothing of architecture) is likely to collapse xD

Krista@Cubicleblindness said...

I Love Pocky! I'm so excited to read INK!! it sounds amazing!

Mariegin said...

It would be awesome to read this book months before its release date. :D

Louisse said...

Hi Amanda! xD *giddy laugh* Congrats on reaching 1,000 Followers! It just means more people are getting to know INK now. Eeeep!

Well, to answer your question: I'd definitely like to draw a flailing penguin so that I can actually know what a flailing penguin looks like. Or a lavender colored UNICORN with a cookie-shaped cutie mark. Unicooorn. Or a Scottish turtle, though I have no idea how you'd know it's Scottish since it can't talk... I could like stick a sign on it? Or I could draw a zombie that would bring about the zombie apocalypse. (!!!) Or stick with my roots and create a giant dragon. Rawr. *plays Eye of the Tiger or should I say... Dragon? Get it? Get it? No... Oh* I need to stop before I put any more weird things in here... Haha!

Hee! Thanks for the giveaway, lovely. <3

Danielle D said...

I think I'd either draw a mini dragon, or a cactus pup.

Cathy K. said...

What an lovely question! I would probably draw a kitten. I want a pet so bad!!

Braiden said...

I would draw my perfect girlfriend, my favourite traits and all. Bit of a downer answer I know, but it was that or drawing an arashitora, which may kill me at first sight.

Thanks Amanda for the giveaway! Arigatoo gozaimasu.

Ricardo Marín said...

I don't know. Maybe draw a lot of money for books x)

Von P. said...

I will draw my dream house in my dream peaceful place. Something like the one from the animated movie UP. I might draw my own world with no chaos or anything bad that could happen. Just peace.

Gaby Pendragon said...

I'd draw a house, the house of my dreams.

Jesselle said...

I'd draw a fairy tale land where magical creatures exist. I'd love to be friends with fairies, unicorns, and talking plants. Haha! :) Thanks so much for the awesome giveaway! I really want to read Ink! :)

Cassandra Page said...

... oh, and I'd like to draw a dragon because, DRAGON. But he'd probably eat me as the first order of business. So if I drew him, I'd also draw a big pile of food. And hope for the best.

Geraldine said...

I'm a really bad artist, but that shouldn't stop me from trying!! I'd maybe draw a twin of myself so I can prank people. But... that twin might turn out to be evil and try to kill me like in Spongebob. So I'd just draw a huge-ass library instead. With the ladders and a big desk. and the spinning Earth-globe thingo. Haha! Thanks for the giveaway!! :)

Andrea M. said...

I'd draw a Sukiya-zukuri style house-a nice one by a lake with a view of the mountains. I would include a pair of rocking horse shoes in a box right by the front door!

Anonymous said...

I would draw a red orb that contains the power of phoenix - fire and light up every poor household during the cold weather

Debby said...

man, I just finished reading Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout, so if I'm really honest, I'd draw me a Daemon. I want a Daemon. Rawr.

Congrats on all the hype, you deserve it! I'm so looking forward to this book :)

Dianne said...

I'd draw myself a library with tons and tons of books! Hee. Thanks for the giveaway Amanda and congratulations on the followers! Can't wait for Shadow and Ink!

Kyle Patrick Magistrado said...

I would draw books! :P =)))

fluffernutter said...

More magic pens so that I can sell them to select people and become very, very rich! Lol, I'm joking.

I'd probably whip myself up a huge bookstore (that's mine) with all the books in the world so that the books I want will never be out of stock. Oh, oh! And ARCs will always be present and replenished in there. Hee.

I can't draw to save my life so all this flies out the window, but I CAN hire a designer and make her swear not to tell anyone--but I'm getting ahead of myself :))

Thanks for the awesome giveaway, Amanda. Can't wait to read ink! :D

Nancy Reece said...

Katie said...

I'd probably draw a magic wand that worked. Wouldn't that be so cool?

Jas Dela Cruz said...

A paper that you can stare at. :)
I mean you will just look at it, and the paper will reflect what's on your mind, drawings or words or whatever; then you can segregate them to complete a thought or mismatch to what suits you :D

S.G.C. said...

I would go for the bestest friend I can ever ask for. Someone who's going to understand me so well, all the time. That would be awesome.

I'd draw a pretty, pink, sparkly, winged unicorn that will be trained in combat training for any apocalypse. It shall poop nutella, the world's greatest food...and it shall be my greatest friend!

Congratulations on reaching 1000 followers! That's pretty amazing! And thank you for the chance to win Ink - I've been aware of the novel for quite a while and have been waiting (almost) patiently for the release, but I'd love to get my hands on it sooner! Japan is a bit of an obsession of mine, you see ^_^ Now to your question - I would probably like to draw someone like Shiki from Togainu no Chi ( http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20121112044620/bleachfanfiction/images/2/23/Shiki-togainu-no-chi-17173783-800-599-1-.jpg ), but with slightly less homicidal and psychopathic tendencies :P
