A GOLDEN Giveaway!

Happy Holidays!
Christmas is near, and we all know that one of the greatest pleasures of the season is to give.  It's been quite a while since I've given anything away here on ye old blog, and I just so happen to have one of these hanging around.  Though I thought it looked pretty, it's not actually not on my tree.  Husband and kiddos vetoed that idea, which means I'll be giving it away to one lucky winner out there.  
It's a jacket proof for the hardcover of GOLDEN, and boy is it beautiful and shiny.  I actually had to turn the flash off to get a good shot because the light reflects off the foil just like the sunburst in the photo.
  I've signed it and handwritten my own GOLDEN playlist on the inside, and I would love to give it away along with...
A Special, bound-manuscript edition of GOLDEN
(The official ARCs will be out in January, so you can think of this as an advanced Advance Reader Copy)
We gave these away at NCTE in Las Vegas last month, and I have one extra that will go to one winner, along with the jacket proof.
All you have to do for a chance to win is:
Leave a comment here 
If you'd like to gather some extra entries, you can do so by:
Tweeting the giveaway (+1)
Sharing it on Facebook (+1)
Including a link to the giveaway on your blog (+1)
Please leave your entry total and the links in your comment.  I'm willing to work on the honor system if you are. 
This giveaway will stay open until 12pm PST on December 23rd, and I will post the winner bright and early on Christmas Eve. 
I hope this finds you all happy, healthy, and enjoying the holiday season,
Merry Christmas!

    I've had recently heard some amazing amazing things about Golden (re: Tara at Fiction Folio). It's sort of the perfect book to give away during the holidays too because it has a sparkley title. :)
