Bring YA to YOUR Hometown & Enter to WIN 10 Autographed Books!

Have you ever wished that a big YA book tour would make a stop in your hometown? Well, here's your chance for that wish to come true! YA2U is a program that features five award-winning and best-selling authors who are holding a contest to see what city they should visit in an exclusive tour stop!

The authors are collecting votes from January 1 to February 15, and any city in the continental US or any Canadian city that has an international airport can win an exclusive visit from all five authors, including an author panel and book signing! Entering is super easy--and if you help spread the word about the contest, you can also enter win a signed copy of all of their books (TEN signed books in total!)--and the book contest is open internationally!



And they want to have an event in your home town! To participate, just got to the YA2U website and let them know what city you want them to come to. And while you're there, help spread the word about the contest and you can be entered to win all of their books--TEN signed books in total! 

Here's why the YA2U Team should come to MY hometown! 
Most of the time, I wind up driving into NJ and taking the train to NYC for a majority of book signings, or wishing I lived in the mid-west, which seems to attract a lot of signings.  It has been rare for groups of authors to come to PA for signings, though we finally received a couple in 2012. 

It would be especially nice to see them come to Phialdelphia and give inner-city students a chance to meet authors. Usually when authors do come to PA, they come to the suburbs, which, while more practical for myself, doesn't give opportunities to much of the youth in Philadelphia.  With the City threatening to close many schools looming above us, we need more opportunities to get books into the hands of teens than ever before.

It would be lovely to see more authors come to PA, and I've read four of these five authors!  I've been fans of both Marissa Meyer and Victoria Schwab before either had published works, and would love to have them visit PA.

Why should the YA2U Team come to your hometown? Why not join in the fun today and share with others about this program and your hometown. The more votes your town gets, the closer you are to having your very own personal tour stop! Vote for YOUR town here!

And if you help spread the word, you can also participate in the book giveaway. Tell them that you learned about YA2U from me and we both get extra entries in the contest!
