Catching Fire Book, T-Shirt & Pin Giveaway!!

This is an AMAZING CONTEST and I am SO excited to be able to bring this to you! OK...THREE of my readers are going to get a chance to win "Catching Fire" by Suzanne Collins! Not only the book, but a really Limited Edition T-Shirt and Collectible Pin as well! Interested? Keep reading...




This contest is going to run a little bit different than the rest of my contests, so please read the entire post and make sure you follow the instructions!

How to Enter:

To enter, please leave a comment with your name, and email address so that I may contact you if you win! This contest will run until SEPTEMBER 24th and I will announce the winners the next day!

Rules:

The Catching Fire book promotion is open to participants with a United States mailing address only (international readers can enter if you have a friend in the States who can accept your prizes by mail!). Entrants under age 13 must have parent or guardian permission to enter. The Catching Fire book promotion runs from September 1 to September 15, 2009. Winners will be announced on or around September 16, 2009.

A Little Background:

"Catching Fire" is the much awaited second edition to the ever popular "Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins! So, before I get into what you win, for those of you that haven't had the great-fortune to read "The Hunger Games", let me give you a little background!


About The Hunger Games:




Twenty-four are forced to enter. Only the winner survives.



In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.

Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Sounds too good to miss doesn't it? Well, watch this...



The Second Installment!

Catching Fire:



Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.


Hungry for MORE?



Still not sure? How about the First Chapter?


About Suzanne Collins:

Since 1991, Suzanne Collins has been busy writing for children’s television. She has worked on the staffs of several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains it All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo. For preschool viewers, she penned multiple stories for the Emmy-nominated Little Bear and Oswald. She also co-wrote the critically acclaimed Rankin/​Bass Christmas special, Santa, Baby! Most recently she was the Head Writer for Scholastic Entertainment’s Clifford’s Puppy Days.

While working on a Kids WB show called Generation O! she met children’s author James Proimos, who talked her into giving children’s books a try.

Photobucket

Thinking one day about Alice in Wonderland, she was struck by how pastoral the setting must seem to kids who, like her own, lived in urban surroundings. In New York City, you’re much more likely to fall down a manhole than a rabbit hole and, if you do, you’re not going to find a tea party. What you might find...? Well, that’s the story of Gregor the Overlander, the first book in her five-part fantasy/​war series, The Underland Chronicles.

At present, Suzanne is hard at work on the third book in her sci-fi series, The Hunger Games.

She currently lives in Connecticut with her family and a pair of feral kittens they adopted from their backyard.

*as stated on the author's site!
