Cool Young Adult Related Information is a new semi weekly thing I'm staring up ( maybe two or three times a month at most?) that allows me to share new informatioin I have recived through the week(s) dealing with they YA world.
First, Fire was released this week (!!!!!) and in celebration Penguin has realeased a brand new trailer for it:
Speaking of book trailers there's also two more that were recently released. One for Million Dollar Throw and one dealing with I am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to be Your Class President, a book that I recently reviewed here.
Also, Tom Dolby recently posted about his new project dealing with becoming a Secret Society Teen Ambassador!
Here's some of the info:
Want to be a Secret Society Teen Ambassador? Submit your name and US/Canada mailing address to Tom between October 7, 2009 and October 19, 2009 and the Bradford Trust will pick fifteen winners at random. Each one of the fifteen winners will receive an Ambassador Initiation Kit in the mail!
What’s in the Initiation Kit?
• “The Initiates were given what looked like tattoos at the nape of their necks.” A set of 15 temporary ankh tattoos for you and 14 Initiates. Give them out wisely!
• “Anastasia took a sip of her martini, leaving a dark red lipstick print on her glass.” Your ticket to gorgeous lips and cheeks, TheBalm’s Stainiac Beauty Queen tinted gel blush (”a hint of tint for the lips and cheeks”)! A $15 value!
• “A card was included with the package that simply read, ‘With compliments.’” A one-of-a-kind vintage New York postcard signed by Tom — use it as a bookmark!
• “Patch and Nick used to play this game in class, where they would pass notes.” One beautiful, retro-styled Field Notes mini-notebook, perfect for writing down secrets! At the Bradford Trust, we’re crazy about these little notebooks. Normally, three are $10!
• “Lauren started to open it, but Emily stopped her.” Last, but not least: a secret initiation tool — here’s a hint: it’s sealed with an ankh!
Futher info can be found here.
Also, on to some news about this site. I'll be posting the contest winners for my remaining contests either tonight or tomorrow. Well, I guess, whenever I get the chance, so they are still open, which leaves you the chace to still click on the links above if you have yet to enter! :)
Anyway, I hope you take the chance to check out these cool new things!
( FTC Disclosure: All Book Trailers were sent to me by Penguin's Young Adult Reader's Division and Tom Dolby's Ambassador program was shared with me by him.)
