Did you read this recent article in PW about the journey that the ARC of Mary Pearson’s newest novel, The Miles Between, is taking? If you’d like the ARC tour to visit your home town, here’s your chance. All you have to do is make a comment below by 6PM EST today, and your name will be in a drawing for the next gret adventure (drawing to be held by whichever Locust is in the house at the moment).
So that you know what you’re getting yourself into, I’ve pasted the rules from Mary’s LJ below:
1. READ AND PASS ON
Each person who gets The Miles Between ARC can have it for a maximum of two weeks before sending it on to the person of their choice in a different town–make sure the person you choose knows the rules of the ARC tour before you send it to them. If you don’t know who to send it to, email[email protected] and she will give you another recipient to mail it to. 2. TAKE A PICTURE
Take a picture of The Miles Between ARC somewhere in your hometown. Show off a favorite coffee shop, store, park, street–something your town is famous for–surprise us! Give some press to your favorite neck of the woods! Then post the picture on your blog and send me the link, or send a picture to me and I will post it on my blog. We all get to see the country! Unusual places. Quirky places. Fun places. YOUR places.
3. THE DRAWING
Once you have posted a picture on your blog of The Miles Betweensomewhere in your hometown and you have sent me the link (or the picture to post on my blog)–along with your contact information–I will enter your name in a drawing. At the end of The Miles Between cross-country tour, I will draw TEN names from the “road trip bloggers” to receive free personalized and signed copies of the final hardcover of The Miles Between.
4. END OF THE ROAD
Whoever has the ARC on August 20th is the last person to get it. The road trip is almost over. The last road trip blogger mails it by August 20th to my editor, Kate Farrell, in NYC so it arrives in time for the official publication day on September 1st! Remember, to be entered in the drawing, you must send me a link to your blog with the picture of The Miles Between, or a picture for me to post by midnight August 20th. Again, send to[email protected] .Once they have all arrived, Kate will take a picture of the travel weary ARCS enjoying their final destination at the famous Flatiron Building in NYC and Mary will draw names and announce the winners.
Each ARC package will come with envelopes(6) and postage–all you have to do is address the envelope and make sure the remaining envelopes get tucked into the ARC package for the next recipient. Feel free to sign your names and write messages on the inside covers of the ARC. I can’t wait to see all the miles between San Diego and New York City–your miles!
