Wolves of Mercy Falls: FOREVER cover release contest!

Unless you've been living under a YA fiction rock for the past two years, you've heard of the Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater. And just to give you the benefit of the doubt, those sitting there going "Oh my goodness! Where have I been?" you may know the first two books in the trilogy as Shiver and Linger. (Why yes, those colors are significant). Linger was released in July of this year, and since I read those last words, my life has been lacking. So, putting the spin back into the world, Maggie released the cover of Forever, the third and final book in the trilogy (Yes, trilogy means three. Unless you're awesome like Scott Westerfield... take the hint Maggie). 

As you can see, unless you are really unobservant, I inserted a picture of the cover to the right. And to answer our pondering question, red. Forever will be red. Personally, I was rooting for purple. Purple is an awesome color and red holds parallels to blood and I don't know if I can handle that in the conclusion to the series. I'll settle for what I get though, which happens to be red.

To celebrate this release, Maggie is holding a contest. Woo! And if you know anything about her contests, they include a lot of fabulous, signed, doodled books/audio books/book marks, book plates and other awesome swag. To be more specific, the prizes are as follows:

1. Two signed copies of the Linger audiobook, featuring the sex-on-a-stick narrator that reads Cole’s parts and the narrator who SINGS Sam’s songs in his parts.

2.A signed and intensely doodled in copy of LINGER, personalized to you, naturally.

3. A signed and intensely doodled in paperback copy of SHIVER, personalized to you, naturally

4. 4 LINGER tank tops provided by Scholastic (unfortunately only available in two sizes, small and improbably small.

5. A signed UK edition of LINGER.

6. 20 signed bookmarks

7. 15 doodled and signed bookplate
