Linger Giveaway!!!


Yesterday we went to Maggie Stiefavter's signing at the Borders in Glendale. In part with my bad (very bad) sense of directions and timing we got to the borders FOUR hours early! 
Since we didn't have much else to do we went to lunch at Panda Express. We still had three hours left after lunch, so we helped out Borders by folding cranes. Well I sort of learned how to fold cranes, I think I folded about four cranes total and even then they kind of sucked. 
Maggie was really hilarious. She told us that she doesn't find werewolves attractive because they shed, drool, smell like a wet dog, and there's the flea/tick collar situation. She also shared with us an amusing experience when she went to see New Moon with some bloggers and here is a clip of it from Behind Yellow Eyes


Borders Glendale was also awesome enough to host a fan art contest for Maggie's signing. My friends and I each entered the contest. The top most poster with the maroon frame with the snowflake, the leaf, and the tree is my sisters. Sandy designed her poster to represent all three books in the Wolves of Mercy Falls Series using a snowflake with a wolf in it for Shiver, a leave with Grace in it for Linger, and a tree with both of them in it for Forever. 
The small sad lonesome cupcake to the right of Sandy's is Audrey's poor melting cupcake. Apparently frosting doesn't do well with heat and traveling. 
My poster is the movie poster with Travis Caldwell as Sam and Skyler Samuels as Grace at the top. A nice icy centering to make the title pop and at the bottom is Grace sitting on a tire swing starring out at the wolves.
Carolyn's small piece at the bottom she drew with various scenes from Shiver. 


Borders Glendale was giving away some pretty awesome prizes for the fan art contest. First place winner going to Sandy was one signed set of each of Maggie's books. Second place was a girl who sang a song from Grace's POV, she received both signed Shiver and Linger and I got third with my movie poster to win a signed Linger.
Now since I have already bought the book I have ONE signed Linger to giveaway! I'm also going to throw in a Shiver/Linger bookmark to the winner of Linger.
