Happy Anniversary, YAMuses!

This weekend marked a momentous occasion for the YAMuses. One year ago we all met in a small critique group at the Big Sur Writing Conference. At that time, we had no idea what the next year would bring in our writing lives, and we never could have imagined how important that chance meeting would become. This past year was the most amazing, dream fulfilling adventure imaginable. We're so grateful for those of you who have joined in and supported us on the journey. So after frequent emails this weekend, we've decided to share the love with all of you and give away PRIZES!!

The first week of every month is the time we usually share books we've been reading. If you haven't already noticed, we LOVE to read YA books and between us, we have quite a collection of wonderful reads (note the list below). So this week, in honor of our anniversary, we will be giving away FREE books! The guidelines are listed below. We want to reward our faithful followers and encourage some new ones, so help us spread the word. Tweet, follow, post, or comment. Everything helps you win books. We will post the names of the winners on the blog each day, so keep coming back to see if you win a prize!

Here’s how it works. Every day this week, in honor of the YAMuses anniversary, we will select at random one follower and one twitter (@yamuses)/facebook poster that directs new readers to the blog to give a FREE book! If you have commented on the blog (including today’s post) you will have an additional chance to win. At the end of the week, all followers will be entered into a GRAND PRIZE DRAWING to receive 3-5 books.

Some examples of the books YOU could win:
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
How to Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves
Mistwood by Leah Cypress
Shade by Jeri Smith Ready
Gone by Lisa McMann
The Demon's Lexicon AND The Demon's Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan
Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
And many more...

So join us in the celebration and Happy Anniversary, Muses!


I only just started following your blog today after discovering Under The Never Sky by one of your very own talented writers, which made me search all over the internet for more details to lust over. Then I discovered even MORE amazing debuts set to come out in 2012 by you ladies... *fans self*. If the world does end in December 2012, at least we'll be going out on a YA fiction high!

Anywho, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! Wishing you many more happy years of blogging and writing goodness. Amazing prizes you have up for grabs, I'd love to be included if this is open internationally! Thanks! :)

Welcome Brodie! We're glad you found us. We'll ship the prizes anywhere. Katy's agent is in Australia, so it's almost like our second home. Sort of.

Wow, what a great contest! I just discovered your blog via "The Apocalypsis" blog and will tweet about this contest.

Happy anniversary! Wow, such great books! Congrats on one year, YA Muses! I'm glad so many good things have come to you in the past year, and I wish you many more in the upcoming one and beyond!

Happy Anniversary, YA Muses! Here's to many more!
