Announcing...the WINNERS of YA2U!

We are so incredibly thrilled to announce the winners! First, an apology for the delay: it took us a little longer than we thought to confirm all the winners (but please trust us in knowing that we triple checked each entry by hand to ensure the winning cities were valid). And then we worked with a few contacts in the winning cities to come up with dates for the events, which we currently have set for April 2013.

So, without further ado, here are all the participating authors to announce the winning cities of the YA2U program!

In case you can't see the video, the grand prize winner of the contest is...

Cookeville, TN

With runner-up cities being:

Lewisville, TX
Shelby, NC

Because Cookeville and Shelby are so close together, we were able to swing doing two live events in one week. Lewisville is a little further away, but we're going to work with the school and/or library system there to do a video program for them.

Again, thank you everyone for participating. It was awesome to see where people were--this is definitely information we'll be sharing with our publishers in the hopes of sending more book tours your way.

Thanks again to every single person who participated! The response was so great that I'm pretty sure we'll be able to do this again in the future... :)

We'll post specific dates and times of events as soon as we have that information finalized.
