"GEEKTASTIC Giveaway!"


Acclaimed authors Holly Black(Ironside) and Cecil Castellucci(Boy Proof) have united in geekdom to edit short stories from some of the best selling and most promising geeks in young adult literature: M.T. Anderson, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Tracy Lynn, Cynthia and Greg Leitich Smith, David Levithan, Kelly Link, Barry Lyga, Wendy Mass, Garth Nix, Scott Westerfeld, Lisa Yee, and Sara Zarr.

With illustrated interstitials from comic book artists Hope Larson and Bryan Lee O'Malley, Geektastic covers all things geeky, from Klingons and Jedi Knights to fan fiction, theater geeks, and cosplayers. Whether you're a former, current, or future geek, or if you just want to get in touch with your inner geek, Geektastic will help you get your geek on!

So...do you want your chance to win ONE out of FIVE possible copies? Just leave a comment here, telling me all about your "geektastic" story. It can be either real or made up, but it has to be "geektastic". There are no length requirements; it can be as long (or short) as you like.

The tenth and twenty-third commenters are instant winners. (already filled)

Ummmmmmm...very interesting, Cynde. Those are attention-getting titles. I will certainly try to get back and enter so I can win one of them. I don't know if I have a geektastic story "ready" to share (would take SOME doing to get it ready)but, I can enter one of the other ways, hopefully.

Thanks for coming by the other day, I enjoyed it.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi, dellgirl!

Yeah, I have to try to remember one of my "geektastic" stories, myself...it sounds like fun, huh?

I hope you have a nice weekend, too. Byee!
