Winning Wednesday

Who likes to win free stuff?? Me! That's all. Carry on.

Just kidding. I actually have a point with that question. Last night on twitter I did an impromptu giveaway of Split Second because I was so excited to get them. The response was awesome! Thanks, guys! So I want to give more of you the opportunity to win. Harper loved your response, too, so they are contributing a hard cover of Split Second *and* a paperback of Pivot Point to give away as a package every Wednesday on twitter for the next 4 weeks, starting today. I'll sign them and send them to you! The rules are simple. RT my tweet that day about the contest (find out what that tweet is on twitter. My handle is @kasiewest). Then answer the following question including the hashtag #winSplitSecond

Question of the week:
Jan 29--What is your favorite (or least favorite) thing about football?

The contest will be every Wednesday from 8am PST -- 8pm PST. So that means, for today, I will pick a winner at 8pm. Start tweeting now!

Lovestruck Tour!!

Hello!! (why do I always always try to put a 'w' on the end of hello?? Weird.)

So, I have a fun tour to announce! Megan Shepherd, Megan Miranda, Robin Constantine, and I will be traveling together in the month of February and we want to see you! If you are near any of these areas, please come visit us. If not, help us spread the word and you can earn a chance to win a signed copy of each of our books featured on the poster below. Go to this website for further details and to enter to win: !! I'm excited to meet some of you. (that made it sound like I wasn't excited to meet others of you, didn't it? What I meant was that some of you won't be able to make it because you don't live where we're going so I can't be excited to meet those that won't be there get it.)
