You Are Amazing, Beautiful, and Worthwhile (and Int’l Legacy Contest!)

The Goddess Legacy (#2.5 in the Goddess Test series) will be on shelves and available for your e-reader TOMORROW, July 31, and I am so excited for you to have the chance to read it! I promised an international contest, and here it is, but before we get to it, I made a vlog. And it’s kind of a rambly vlog, but it’s something I really wanted to share with you all.

A few weeks ago, I had lunch with one of my best writer friends, Courtney Allison Moulton, and we started talking about relationships in YA. It was a heated discussion, and we both decided to go home and write a blog post about it. For various reasons, that unfortunately didn’t happen, but now, a few weeks later, this particular topic has been weighing on my mind. And instead of writing about it, I decided it would mean more if it came from an actual face and a voice.

Rambly as it may be, I mean every word. No matter who you are, you are amazing, beautiful, and worthwhile just the way you are.

Now, for the contest! This is open to everyone no matter where in the world you live. All you have to do to enter is the following:

+ Comment on this post with what you like most about yourself. Or if that’s too personal, then what you like most about your best friend.

+ For one extra entry, follow me on Twitter at @aimee_carter.

+ For one extra entry, ‘like’ my Facebook page.

+ For one extra entry, subscribe to my blog.

+ For two extra entries, share this link on Twitter.

+ For three extra entries, share this link on Facebook.

Important: do NOT forget to leave your email address in the body of your comment! That’s the only way I have to get ahold of you. And please let me know how many points you’ve earned as well. You must be 13+ to enter, or have an adult do it for you. Contest will last until Friday, August 3, at 12:01am EST, at which point I will randomly select a winner based on the number of entries earned.

Good luck, everyone!


EDIT: Contest is now CLOSED! I’ll announce a winner soon. Thanks for entering, everyone!

Legacy Winners!

I’m so sorry about the delay on announcing the winners to the 4,000 Follower giveaway! It’s been a crazy week full of travel and amazing people, and figuring out the winners by hand was a task much harder than I’d anticipated. But all that aside, at last I can announce the winners!

The three copies of The Goddess Legacy go to…

Legacy Cover and Interrupted Trailer

We have a two for one for you today – not only did Harlequin TEEN reveal the cover for The Goddess Legacy (Goddess Test #2.5) on Facebook, but yesterday the official book trailer for Goddess Interrupted went up as well!

First, what is by far my favorite cover of the series (so far – haven’t seen the cover for book three!)…

Seriously, how gorgeous is that? I LOVE this cover so, so, so much. Who do you think that girl is – Calliope, Ava, or Persephone? (There is no right answer!)

And now for the Goddess Interrupted trailer!

What do you guys think? Excited about seeing the Underworld? Meeting Persephone? Seeing Kate reunited with Henry? All of the above?

Goddess Interrupted is out in the US and Canada in FIVE DAYS, on March 27th, and The Goddess Legacy will be released July 31!

The Goddess Legacy

So, if you’ve been browsing Goddess Test series books on Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or Goodreads lately, you MIGHT have noticed something called The Goddess Legacy. Curious what that might be?

The Goddess Legacy will be out (in paperback and e-formats!) on July 31, 2012! I am so excited for you guys to have the chance to read it, and don’t forget – Goddess Interrupted is out in less than two weeks, on March 27, and there is an extra scene in the book from Henry’s point of view that you can’t get anywhere else!

To celebrate, I’m going to have a quick contest for a finished copy of Goddess Interrupted. For the next twenty four hours (until 7pm EST), comment here with which story you’re most looking forward to in The Goddess Legacy, and I’ll choose a winner at random. US and Canada only, one entry per person, and make sure you include your email address!

Thanks again for all of your support, guys! You’re ten shades of amazing, and I hope you enjoy these books as much as I enjoyed writing them.
