A Thank You to Readers: Win 9 Signed Books + More!

It's been awhile since we've had a contest. Part of that was because I've been saving things up until I get to make some big announcements (I've got a new book coming next year! And other cool things!), but I recently just decided, you know what? You guys are awesome 24/7, not just when I have a big announcement to share, so let's do a giveaway right now for no good reason at all, other than I like you people a whole bunch. 

So, I gathered together a bunch of my fave recent science fiction-y type books that I had just waiting in a pile for a giveaway. They're such stellar books I put them in a book star. Get it? :) 


ONE GRAND PRIZE WINNER WILL RECEIVE:




PRIZE LIST
Shades of Earth signed by Beth Revis
The Body Electric signed by Beth Revis
These Broken Stars signed by Amie Kaufman and Meg Spooner
Salvage signed by Alexa Duncan
Tracked ARC by Jenny Martin (gently read once by me!)
Fever signed by Lauren DeStefano
The Cage signed by Megan Shepherd
Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone
Origin signed by Jessica Khoury
Kalahari signed by Jessica Khoury
Lois Lane: Fallout signed by Gwenda Bond
+ a secret surprise audio book!
+ awesome swag from several authors!

I'm going to keep it simple to enter--this contest really is about me thanking you, my readers, with no strings attached. So it's open internationally to everyone, and you don't have to do anything but give me your email address to enter (so I can contact you if you win). 




The giveaway is open until August 31, and I would appreciate it if you'd tell your friends and help spread the word. You could post about it on Twitter or Facebook or Tumblr--but it's not a requirement at all.


Share on:
And if you feel like thanking me or any other author, remember: reviews on sites like Amazon and BN.com are among the best ways to help our books reach wider audiences!

You Send Me Mail, I Send You Mail

So. I meant to take a picture of the stack of letters I recently sent out--about thirty. Some were ones that I was just catching up on over the last few months, but some were....quite a bit older than that. My assistant (read: the husband, who I can't fire) accidentally misfiled a stack of fan mail letters that I needed to reply to, and when we discovered them two weeks ago, we dropped everything to answer each one. I hope they get to their destination safely!

Note: If you've sent me fan mail and I've not replied back, please drop me an email at authorbethrevis@gmail.com! I think we're 100% caught up now, so if you've not gotten anything back, that means your letter was lost!

But it got me thinking about fan mail. In the past, I've asked that people send me a self-addressed stamped envelope in return for getting a reply and swag back. But that definitely posed a problem and inconvenience for readers outside of America, and sometimes I was getting envelopes that didn't fit swag all that easily. So... instead, I'm just going to ask that you send me mail, and I'll send you mail back.

It can be as simple as a postcard (I love postcards!). Or a drawing or anything else you want. Put a stamp on something, include an address for me to reply to, and send me something at:

Beth Revis
PO Box 27
Union Mills
NC 28167
USA

...and I'll send you something back. I'm stuck at home with a baby right now, so I've been signing a lot of extra swag. If you want to include some stamps for me, that'd be nice and helpful, but it's no big deal. 

I hope this mail policy works a little better for everyone!

Announcing: A Kickstarter for a New YA Anthology!

Demitria Lunetta, Mindy McGinnis, and Kate Karyus Quinn, YA authors extraordinaire came up with an amazing idea: a crowdfunded YA anthology all about darkness and light--in characters, in the world, in the shadows. I've seen a little behind the scenes work, and I know these ladies are working to make this project be the best it can possibly be.

They've compiled thirteen amazing YA authors, each contributing a story to Among the Shadows, and the anthology will be released in September this year. But to get it off the ground, we're turning to you.

Among the Shadows is now a part of a brand new Kickstarter campaign. You can enter on several levels, with lots of perks from various different authors (I'm giving away copies of The Body Electric and "The Girl and the Machine"). There are books, critiques, being in the acknowledgements, and more up for grabs--and of course the anthology itself!

 You should definitely check out the book here. Perks start at just $5, so you can get some amazing books and stories easily!

Thank you all for sharing the news about The Body Electric sale! You made THIS happen:



I'm so lucky to have readers like you!

To celebrate, I ran a contest last week for people who shared the news on social media. It took me a little longer than expected to compile all the entries from all the social media platforms (thank GOODNESS for Excel!) and the winner is:


Congrats! Winner, please email me your shipping address so I can get the prize in the mail to you ASAP. 

Also! In case you missed it, I have a Twitter-only contest going on right now to help celebrate Lauren DeStefano's latest book! All you have to do is retweet to enter. The prize is a signed copy of her latest book, Burning Kingdoms, and a handcrafted doll made by Lauren herself! (Did you know Lauren has her own etsy store where she sells dolls like these? I grabbed this one as I figured it'd be Pen's favorite :)

ONE DAY ONLY SALE THIS SATURDAY: Nab Books for just 99¢

The Body Electric was lucky enough to be picked for a special book deal by BookBub and will be on sale for just 99¢! The sale technically only lasts for one day--March 7th, this Saturday--but it may go on sale a little bit before and/or stay on sale a little bit after that. The book is on sale at Amazon (Kindle) and Barnes & Noble (Nook) in the US, Canada, and the UK. But you're only guaranteed to snatch a copy at this special price on Saturday, March 7!


BookBub is a great email program that sends the best deals straight to your inbox--if you like the cheap ebooks, definitely subscribe to their newsletter program. (And you can subscribe to my newsletter too, so you'll always be the first to know when my books go on sale.)

Meanwhile, here's this weekend's special deals! This sale qualifies in the USA, the UK, and Canada, and is only guaranteed on March 7th. It may be on sale early (some retailers take different times to put a book on sale), but it will only definitely be on sale March 7th.



To celebrate, I'm also going to put my short story collection, The Future Collection, on sale for just 99¢. That's six short stories for the price of one--you can't beat that deal! (Note: The Future Collection is only available on Amazon/Kindle.)


This sale is truly only available for a limited time, and it will be a very rare occurrence. Don't miss out--grab a copy at the special sale price on March 7! The sale WILL END on Sunday!

Because this sale is so rare and won't come along again for a long time, I want to make sure that as many people as possible can grab a copy at such a special price. Therefore, throughout social media, I'm spreading the word...and I'm rewarding the people who help me!
