Congratulations, Emma! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize!
To celebrate the coming holiday and vacation, we're hosting the 12 Giveaways of Christmas. That's 12 giveaways, 12 days in a row.
It's now time for Day 5.
Each giveaway will run for 48 hours, so be sure and check back each day to see what giveaway is next and who the winners are.
Today, I'm giving away a copy of my friend Nadine Brandes's dystopian novel A Time to Die. She also has some writing advice to share with you.
Advice for Teen Writers
And a second piece of advice (because I can’t just give one) is to go to a writer’s conference! I attended my first one at age 17 and it drop-kicked me to an entire new level of writing. (Painful, but totally worth it.) Even if it’s a small conference, try to attend. You won’t regret it!
Thanks, Nadine! That's great advice. As mentioned, I'm giving away a copy of A Time to Die by Nadine Brandes. International entries are welcome. If an international person wins, I'll ship the book from The Book Depository.
Here's a little bit about the story:
How would you live if you knew the day you'd die?
Parvin Blackwater believes she has wasted her life. At only seventeen, she has one year left according to the Clock by her bedside. In a last-ditch effort to make a difference, she tries to rescue Radicals from the government's crooked justice system.
But when the authorities find out about her illegal activity, they cast her through the Wall -- her people's death sentence. What she finds on the other side about the world, about eternity, and about herself changes Parvin forever and might just save her people. But her clock is running out.
