Bringing YA to You (hopefully me!)

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!

The authors in the program are:

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!

I live in a super tiny town, nestled into California's Central Valley. We have a population of about 2,000 which is less than the High School I attended! Needless to say, nothing interesting has ever happened in the five years that I've lived here (other than getting an ACE Hardware, I guess). But, we do have a library! It's very small, but it's still there, and for that I'm very grateful! It would be beyond amazing to have some authors come visit here!

But since I don't think my actual hometown would ever win, what about my college town? I just graduated from UC Davis, and I think Davis would be the perfect place to host this event! It can be held on campus or at the public library (I love their teen room!).

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!
