Bring YA to Your Hometown!

Have you ever wished that a big YA book tour would make a stop in your hometown? Well, here's your chance for that wish to come true! YA2U is a program that features five award-winning and best-selling authors who are holding a contest to see what city they should visit in an exclusive tour stop!

The authors are collecting votes from January 1 to February 15, and any city in the continental US or any Canadian city that has an international airport can win an exclusive visit from all five authors, including an author panel and book signing! Entering is super easy--and if you help spread the word about the contest, you can also enter win a signed copy of all of their books (TEN signed books in total!)--and the book contest is open internationally!

The authors in the program are:

And they want to have an event in your home town! To participate, just got to the YA2U website and let them know what city you want them to come to. And while you're there, help spread the word about the contest and you can be entered to win all of their books--TEN signed books in total! 

Here's why the YA2U Team should come to MY hometown! 
If I had a vote, I wouldn't use it for my hometown because I live in the boonies. Literally, there are no indie bookstores to supports in an hour radius, the best date night restaurants are in the next city 45 minutes away, and the only two things to do are to go see a movie or go bowling. This is why I think YA2U should not come to my town, but to Decatur, GA, which is home to the Indie shop that I support, Little Shop of Stories. Little Shop is well-known for their awesome book events like the annual Decatur Book Festival, which draws in over 75,000 book lovers for a weekend of author panels and signings. Unfortunately, outside of the DBF, their YA author tours are pretty limited and we don't always get to see many authors stroll through the area. But I would LOVE if this tour was able to come to Decatur, GA and stop by Little Shop of Stories because it would be a beautiful event and I know many would come out to see these fantastic authors!

Why should the YA2U Team come to your hometown?
Why not join in the fun today and share with others about this program and your hometown. The more votes your town gets, the closer you are to having your very own personal tour stop! Vote for YOUR town here!

And if you help spread the word, you can also participate in the book giveaway. Tell them that you learned about YA2U from me and we both get extra entries in the contest!
