Q:Hi Wendy, are you guys giving away books even though the place is faraway? say Philippines? :)
We just posted an international giveaway for THE RING AND THE CROWN. :) We do try to go them for our overseas friends from time to time, because we love you, too!
Normally you’ll just need to check contest rules to see whom the contest is open to, though. The shipping for most of our contests is paid for out of our own pockets, which I’m sure you understand can get pretty expensive, and if the contest is sponsored by a publisher or author, the country restrictions vary, too.
PS Don’t forget that you can share the official Tumblr post for extra entries, too! Just be sure to put the URL for your share in the Rafflecopter form.
Q:Hi Wendy! May I ask where you guys got your header picture for your blog? Did you guys draw it? :) Thank you!
Hi there! I don’t mind at all.
I wish I was talented enough to draw something like that, but our header was designed by the artist Julianna Swaney. We worked pretty closely with her to explain what we were looking for, and she did an amazing job of bringing our vision to life. Highly recommended if you are looking for some artwork! We did a more in-depth write-up on the blog redesign here:
Win a box of Spring ARCs!
“The Volunteer Library Brigade is rolling out to the sidewalks, parks, and subway stations of New York City. These small teams will set up tiny mobile library carts in public spaces around the city and do on site volunteer library work. They will look stuff up, hand out books, do storytime for kids, offer directions, advocate for libraries, and more. The carts will have reference books, maps, giveaways, wifi, and free ebook downloads.”
This rules. Sign up to volunteer at the link.
Love this. Also, how adorable is this librarian?
