Most Awesomest Giveaway Ever

YOU GUYS. THE GLASS ARROW COMES OUT IN JUST 2 WEEKS AND I WANT TO CELEBRATE. I’m so excited to share this book with you. I’m also a little petrified to share it with you. But that, I’ve learned, is how it goes. Either way, LET’S PARTY.

Over the past few years I have been fortunate enough to get to know some really, really wonderful and talented people. Their books? Incredible. If you haven’t read them, you reallllly need to. In fact, let me help you with that.

In this monster giveaway there will be three lucky winners. The grand prize looks a little something like this:


  • ALIENATED by Melissa Landers (signed)
  • ANTIGODDESS and MORTAL GODS by Kendare Blake (both signed)
  • CRASH INTO YOU by Katie McGarry (signed)
  • DOON by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon (signed)
  • ENDSINGER by Jay Kristoff (with signed bookplate and bookmark)
  • GATED by Amy Christine Parker (signed)

  • WILD by Alex Mallory (signed)
  • Oh, and the ARTICLE 5 trilogy (ARTICLE 5, BREAKING POINT, and THREE) by Kristen Simmons (that’s me.) (Yes, signed.)

I’m going to throw in a signed hardcover of THE GLASS ARROW (not pictured because, well, I don’t have it yet) and a swag bag! AND a special collection German edition of ARTIKEL 5! AND a WE NEED DIVERSE BOOKS bookmark and pin!

Also, because I’m so excited about the release of THREE in paperback, two winners will receive signed sets of the entire ARTICLE 5 series (ARTICLE 5, BREAKING POINT, and THREE), along with a GLASS ARROW swag bag and WE NEED DIVERSE BOOKS swag.

A Forecast of Awesome

Hi. You’re awesome. I just wanted to tell you in case you forgot.

You’re awesome, and 2015 is going to be amazing.

You’re going to accomplish so much. You’re going to climb mountains. (Maybe literally, who knows?) You’re going to do things, some of them deliberate, some of them with absolutely no intention, that will touch lives and make people want to be better, more like you.

This year might suck a little, too. I hope it doesn’t, but know that if you’re feeling hurt, or sad, or embarrassed, or lost, or lonely, you’re not alone. Someone else out there is feeling pain. It’s okay to feel that. It’s okay to own that. Too often we’re told not to feel when we really need to. But you’re going to rise again, because you are powerful and strong. Even when you don’t believe in yourself, someone does. I do.

Let yourself shine unhindered, and without shame, this year. Don’t be afraid to be beautiful and unique. You are fierce, loving, and kind, and I am inspired to have you in my life, even in some small way.

Thank you for being you. Now let’s do this, 2015.
