There will be (of course) books signed by Julie Wright, plus food and lots of awesome door prizes!

OLIVIA Spread the Word Contest

We need to spread the word! Help us out, and you have a chance to win SIX books by fellow Newport authors Josi S. Kilpack, Annette Lyon, and Heather Moore.

That's right: ONE lucky winner gets ALL SIX books. Not kidding here!

For each thing you do to help, you get an entry to win.

The winner receives the following SIX books:

You totally need to enter, right? (We know!)

Ways to enter:

—Tweet the event, using the permalink to this post or the Facebook event page at the link above. Be sure to use the hashtag #OLIVIAlaunch to help us track your tweets! (One entry per day, up to four.)

—Post about the launch on your blog, linking back to this post. (One post allowed, but it gives you four entries.)

Tip: Use a URL shortener like to make the permalink fit in a tweet or FB status better.

That's it!
