Violet in Private Giveaway!

We all know and love Melissa Walker's Violet on the Runway series (if you don't know the book, run out and buy!) So to celebrate a triumphant finale (unless Melissa is willing to give us a fourth?), I'm giving away a copy of Violet in Private.

What do you have to do to win? Simply drop by in the comments and list three things you're grateful for (it will make sense once you read the book.) I'll pick the winner using the out-of-a-hat method. I'll even use my bright purple twenties hat.

The giveaway ends next Wednesday, so you have a week. Go be grateful!

I'm thankful for my home, my job, and my ability to read (and enjoy reading).

Three things I'm grateful for? Well, I know this may sound retarded but my first would be my family, I would be so lost and lonely with them.

Second, would have to, I guess; it's something that can completely change my mood and make me such a happier person.

The third is actually a tie between photography and writing because I can express myself and what I'm feeling and thinking in such beautiful ways that can capture people's eyes and make them see who I am.

I know my list is probably stupid, but those are what came to mind when I thought about being grateful for something.

Three things I'm grateful for:

1) My mother. She's a great woman; she's my best friend. She's always there for me. And, of course - she gave me life.

2) Creativity. It makes life interesting.

3) The Romans. I mean, these guys were awesome. Great myths, even if a lot of them were stolen from the Greeks (who, in turn, had stolen them from further East). Great clothes (toga party! Would "Animal House" be the same without it?). And, technology. Cement. Paved roads. The arch. The Romans were amazing, and their industry and inventiveness has helped shape our world today.

I think this is a really great contest request. Even if it didn't have anything to do with the book (though, of course, that helps), it's good to reflect on the things that are good in life. It's too easy to get caught up in The Big, the Bad, and the Ugly that life can bring.

I'm grateful for:

1. My mom - she really has stuck by me through all kinds of trouble. She even gets up at 3am to fire up the computer for Google Maps when I'm lost in a foreign country. And when I come home, you can bet she'll have food waiting. Food chock-full of Mom-love. She's awesome.

2. That person who finally decided that YA novels could be fun and interesting and didn't need to rub the GROWTH of the characters and the MORAL in your face. Who likes to be talked down to?

3. Writers in general who teach me by letting me travel to far-off places, to different times, and to the deepest places in a person's heart and soul. That takes talent and dedication. Go authors!
