Giveaways & News: Melina Marchetta

You know I love Melina Marchetta, so I had to advertise these giveaways for her newest release in the US. :)

Alexa at Not Enough Bookshelves currently has an international giveaway for 2 copies of The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta! Check out her giveaway post here. Deadline is March 4.

If you're on GoodReads and a US resident, Candlewick Press is giving away one ARC of The Piper's Son on GoodReads! Check it out here. Deadline is March 6.

I highly recommend all of Melina Marchetta's novels, so enter both of these giveaways, if you can! If you don't win either giveaway, The Piper's Son will be released in the US on March 8. Only a week away! You won't have to wait long to buy yourself a copy or maybe even request a copy at your local library. ;)

In other news, Melina Marchetta will be at the New York City Teen Author Festival this month starting on the 14th! She posted her schedule on her website. If you're attending or in the area during the festival, be sure to see her! She's from Australia, and I don't believe she makes much author appearances in the US. I would love to be there, but I don't have the time or money to travel all the way to NYC at the moment. (I know... *sniff* So sad.)

That's about all the news I have right now. Remember, enter those giveaways and read her books! You won't regret it. >:3
