Shadow Falls Book & Signed Poster Giveaway!

All of twenty minutes ago, I remembered that during TxLA in April I got my hands on a beautiful Shadow Falls poster signed by the lovely C.C. Hunter!

So I'm pulling it off the shelf and giving it away to one lucky librarian along with a shiny finished copy of BORN AT MIDNIGHT, the first book in the Shadow Falls series. Here's a quick description to get you excited:

One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.” Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.

Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she?

To win the signed Shadow Falls poster and a copy of BORN AT MIDNIGHT send your name, library, and full mailing address to: Library @ MacmillanUSA.com subject: Shadow Falls!

[UPDATE:] This contest is now closed. Thanks to all who entered and congrats to winner Cort Kern!

Contest ended: Friday, June 17th 12pm EDT

Miles from Ordinary
Carol Lynch Williams

It's the first day of summer and Lacey has a new job at the library. Her mom, who seems so much better these days, has a new job, too. But hope of a normal life is too much to ask for as memories of the past rush in and Lacey's day turns from a new beginning to a desperate scramble to stay afloat.

Born at Midnight
C. C. Hunter

Welcome to Shadow Falls: a camp for vampires, shapeshifters, witches, and Kylie Galen. Shadow Falls is a place for teens to learn skills that will help them harness their supernatural powers, but Kylie has enough trouble balancing the affections of Derek the half-fae and Lucas the werewolf.
