Yes friends, I am here to give you the opportunity to own an awesome book. Because it is full of awesome. I’ve been snot-face sick all weekend, but I consoled myself by staying in bed and reading POSSESSION by Elana Johnson. It is a page turner. It has a twisty plot, romance, action, and cool tech. It gave me much to think about. Plus the cover is shiny.

So if you would like to a free SIGNED copy of POSSESSION by Elana Johnson all you have to do is leave a comment in the comments section. You do not have to be a follower, though I will give bonus points* to followers. I’ll also award you bonus points* if you want to blog or tweet or FB about this.

And if you want more bonus points* you can answer a question that POSSESSION got me thinking about. One of the main themes in the book is choices and what forces we allow to influence our choices or what things we shut out from influencing us. So my question is:

What forces influence your choices?

*The points don’t matter. But it makes me feel good to award them.


  1. Consider me entered! I’m a follower, and I also tweeted about the contest. (I don’t know how to do one of those cool Twitter status links, so you’ll just have to trust me:) )

    As for what forces influence my choices, I think my kids do the most on a minute-by-minute level, but I like to think that I take Jiminy Cricket’s advice and always let my conscience be my guide. Probably not as good at that as I ought to be, though…

  2. Sorry you are sick. A good book always makes it better.

    What motivates my choices? If I can weigh out the outcomes, that helps. If I can’t, I generally go with what feels right. That gut feeling.

  3. I agree, the gut feeling is usually right. Whenever I don’t listen to it, I regret it later πŸ™‚ (I’ll twitter your contest, too! I’m gehoudini)

  4. Great! I am planning to buy this for my Nook/Kindle whenever I decide which ereader I’m buying (trying to decide this week!). Elana’s blog was kind of the catalyst for finding so many other cool YA author blogs. I had no idea the writing blog world was so diverse and friendly!

    Don’t enter me for the contest, because I have this book on order. BUT, I still want to play. πŸ™‚ Hmm. I’m influenced heavily by family and the morals instilled in me as a child. πŸ™‚

  5. I’m a follower. I think “the forces” that influence me are mostly people that I care about or admire, whether living, dead, toddler, or divine.

    I hope you’re feeling better.

  6. My immediate reaction is ‘my family’, but I bet there’s more to it if I sat and thought about it for a while. I’m looking forward to reading Elana’s book, and I absolutely love the cover. πŸ™‚

  7. I would say my mood influences my choices. If I am angry or really happy I will make rash decisions and if I am relaxed, thats when I think things through.
    I am a follower too!

  8. Elana is SO awesome!
    I’m totally a follower and I’m gonna tweet you πŸ˜€

  9. Um….I totally posted mine like an entire day before you did.
    Sorry πŸ˜‰
