Contest: Candor and a $15 Amazon Gift card!!!

CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED!
Thanks to everyone who entered! I will pick a winner in the next couple of days!


As promised, I am having my first contest! I told myself I would have a contest once I reached 50 followers! Didn't expect to reach 50 this soon, but I want to extend a huge thank you to all of my original followers!

Candor
by Pam Bachorz
Release Date: September 22nd 2009

Oscar Banks has everything under control. In a town where his father brainwashes everyone, he's found a way to secretly fight the subliminal Messages. He's got them all fooled: Oscar's the top student and the best-behaved teen in town. Nobody knows he's made his own Messages to deprogram his brain. Oscar has even found a way to get rich. For a hefty price, he helps new kids escape Candor, Florida before they're transformed into cookie-cutter teens. But then Nia Silva moves to Candor, and Oscar's carefully-controlled world crumbles.




There will be 1 (one) winner, who will win "Candor" AND a $15 Amazon Gift Card!

"Candor" will be released on September 22nd. I've pre-ordered two copies, one for myself, and one for the contest. The winner will receive a brand new hardcover of "Candor"... which will be mailed sometime after the 22nd. (I'll mail it, as soon as I get it!)

ALSO, The Amazon Gift Card will be EMAILED to the winner as soon as the winner is announced... so you'll be able to use it instantly!!!

Contest is open to everyone, and will end on September 16th.
It's simple to enter! You must comment with your first name AND email address.
