2nd Annual Freaking Huge Contest-O-Thanks!

Last year's contest was so fun, I decided to do another November contest to thank you all for spreading the WAKE/FADE/GONE love. CONTEST ENDS AT MIDNIGHT EST on NOVEMBER 26, 2009 (That's Thanksgiving Day, for the USians).

This time? I'm giving away THREE advance copies of GONE. And maybe a couple copies of WAKE and FADE. And a darling, adorable dream necklace that I bought from JB and Me in my old hometown of Holland, MI.

This contest is open to the entire universe, as long as you have a mailing address.

Here's how you enter:

Tell people about my books. You can...

-add the magic countdown widget to your blog (grab it from a few posts below)
-link to this contest and let your friends know about it
-post a blog review or a notice of the contest or my books to your followers
-tweet about it
-put it in your facebook/myspace status
-write a review on, etc
-write a review in your school newspaper or tell ten friends/acquaintances/enemies to read the WAKE trilogy
-whatever other creative way you can think of to get the word out (picket signs on street corners, sandwich boards, naming a street after know. Fun stuff like that)


Post a quick note summarizing what you did in the comments below and provide a link if applicable.
Also post your email address so I can contact you if you win.

Easy peasy. Done.


This is the only location on the internet where you can enter. Do not try to enter by tweeting at me or sending me email or facebook messages.

IF you do not want to win GONE (book 3) but would like WAKE (book 1) or FADE (book 2) instead, just mention that in your post. I recognize that some people entering will not have read the first book yet, so that might be more appealing to some. YES, I will still give away three copies of GONE no matter what.

PLEASE do not ask me a thousand different questions about what qualifies as spreading the word, or if you're doing it right. If you don't understand, don't enter. Or ask a friend. Just do something like I mentioned above and assume I won't disqualify you. If you feel good about it, so do I. I love you but I'm kinda busy right now so I'm not taking questions on the contest.

(GOSH, McMann. So cranky.)

Hey, why not find me on facebook / twitter / myspace while you're at it?

Lots of love to all of you, and again, THANK YOU for all you have done for me. I really appreciate the way you guys spread the word. You make me so happy and thankful.

Hi, Lisa! What a great contest! We "met" on the reader girlz blog during teen read week and I was fortunate enough to win a copy of WAKE *fangirl squeal*

I've posted a link to your contest in my side bar, as well as a blog post, a tweet and a note and status update on Facebook. After I read the series, I will definitely review on my blog, amazon, goodreads and Barnes and Noble.

OMG this is awesome!! and I loved to meet you in ATBF! (The one with the cute little daughter, LOL) Ok so here I go:

Since Wake series is my top favorite series and CABEL is MY top favorite book guy (he's my top #1 followed by PO -Graceling- and Jace -Mortal Instuments-) I can't even remember all the times I've promoted it but I'll try:

- I reviewed both Wake and Fade on my blog, amazon and Goodreads

- I've answered more times than I can remember what my favorite series is in my blog, on other blogs, on contests and on Yahoo Answers

- Fade is going on my post for top 10 books for 2009 in my blog and on my University's newspaper (I write there)

- I linked the giveaway to my sidebar:

- I RTd your tweet as soon as I saw it! (SabriHorande)

Here's one link to a contest I did about top series:

I'd die if I won GONE! Thanks Lisa!! You're awesome!

barnsdale11 said...

Well, I HAVE to take part in this contest.

By the way, I'll tell you my email first:

I'm telling you about what I did: I'm a huge Spanish fan of yours, and I have had a blog for almost a year now. The second review I ever did (my second post ever) was for WAKE. I even translated its first chapter so that Spanish readers could have a sneak peak:

However, as a fellow blogger, you must know that the first posts aren't usually very good (actually, my first posts were awful). So I decided to create a new review a few months later, so that people could really know about your books. I posted it just after you posted the cover for GONE, and this time, I reviewed both WAKE and FADE:

Later, when you posted Cabe's short story, I also blogged about it here...:

And (last but not least) your books are strong pieces of my recommendations (and yes: I know of some people who read the because of them, and who loved them just as much as me!!):

Actually (okay, I'm sounding a little pathetic), I was thinking to launch a contest in my blog with your books as a prize as a celebration for my first bloggoversary.

So yes, I admit it: I'm a fan :)

Have been for a long time...

Marina5500 said...

. I post it on my status on Myspace and FaceBook
. I blog'd about it on Myspace
. I post'd a bulletin and linked it to contest details and your website.

Yay! I'm always so happy when I find a new post I haven't yet read on your blog. It's especially exciting when it involves a contest... ;)
Well this one is pretty simple...
I have already written a book review, for my school newspaper, sometime last year. (Ain't it the best? I actually have an excuse to read wicked cool books. I love it!)
I have lent my well worn copy of Wake to like twelve people? Thirteen? I don't remember, but I do know that more than half of them loved your books and bought their very own copy. :o)
And a lovely Amazon review is posted somewhere... Somewhere on only God knows where. Just kidding, it's under hannah s. if you'd like to search...

Oh wow, i should really get started on my H.W. My goodness, you should see how much freaking H.W. my science teacher assigned us tonight. It sucks.
Thank you for the contest and sorry for the ridiculously long post!
-hannah s.
P.s. However, your books are so great, even if I hadn't spread the word, someone else near me would have. Can't wait till Gone! Love Cabel forever!

I talk about the books all the time and I made all of my friends read them. (3 new fans are born!!)
I also blogged about it on ( I'm the exact opposite of computer savvy so I don't know how 2 set up a link but u can check it out there.)
I'd be happy with GONE or the necklace. While the necklace would match the WAKE dogtag I got when you came to Books of Wonder up here in New York, I would love to rub GONE in my friends faces. Harsh because I got them hooked? Yes. Fair because they ripped a part of a page in my copy of FADE? Absolutely! (lol). My email adress is:

I teach grade 8 in New Brunswick, Canada. I am spreading the word about Wake, Fade and Gone in the classes I am teaching this year. You have some great new fans who are VERY excited about Gone's upcoming debut in February! Last week, I ran into one of my students from last year. She specifically asked me when the third Janie book was being published. Thank you for writing these engaging books that have helped me encourage and hook my reluctant teen readers! Oh...and well, I have to admit that I love them too, and I am far from being a teen anymore!

I just got my mom to read Wake and Fade. She refused to read the Twilight Saga, so S. Meyer, 0, L. McMann, 1 (so far!) Still workin' on Facebook, Myspace, (my blog) and word of mouth love. PS Still trying to get out of work so I can see you in K-Zoo. And don't worry, MI hasn't sunk into the winter chill yet. It was 50 today- in November!

Can't wait for February!

Just posted a cheerful, yet forceful, recommendation on Myspace, Facebook, Twitter & my blog for EVERYONE to read the WAKE Trilogy. And I posted the widget on my blog and Myspace page. I'm nothing if not thorough...and forceful. HAHA

Serena said...

I've been telling other online communities (Delphiforums, blogs, etc) about your books since I first read Wake.

I don't loan my books out- ever. There is just something innately wrong about letting someone else snarf Cheetos over your keeper books, yanno? So instead of throwing myself on the alter of self-sacrifice, I purchased five additional sets of Wake and Fade to give to my friends- who have loaned out their copies or said a collective no to Cheeto snarfing.

One friend (and I have no idea how we've remained friends) is a notorious spine snapper of books- AND she folds over the pages. Who does that? They make bookmarks for a reason! Anyway, she was one of the recipients for your books. She turned to a new page- not only did she NOT crack their spines but she also used the bookmark I sent with them. They are residing on her keeper shelf- where she refuses to loan them out. There is hope yet for her. :-)

Twi-sessed said...

I just turned a complete stranger into a Wake Tril. reader, and problem missed out on any educational value the professional development training had to offer.

I spent the entire second half of the training workshop that my job paid for (suckers!) telling my neighbor (who just happened to be named Lisa) how fabulous Wake & Fade are and how Gone is only a few months away. She jotted down Wake- McMann on her notebook at the end of the day. :)

Hiya! Thanks for the coolie-cat opportunity. An arc copy of GONE would be absolutely stellar and most definitely something I would, well, I don't know... uh, jump off Mt. Olympus for? Baby-sit my brother for? Sleep in an abandoned hospital for?
However, you do understand my point and so we shall move on.

I've been thinking of some crazy creative way to spread the word on GONE, but I came up blank. Although I did write a book review for WAKE only last year. (I am on my high school's newspaper staff) I also had the school announcer announce-because that is what they do- the following words:
Written by Lisa McMann.
Read it, or be square.

Lovely eh?
Assuming no one was absent, a whopping 2100 students heard the message on Friday. Nearly 20 kids came up to me during lunch, promising they would check the trilogy out. I'm not sure how many will actually keep their word, but they'd be crazy not to. :o)
If I think of anything better, I'll make sure to do that as well.
Thanks again!

Caterina said...

I never win anything...but I'll just try this anyway :D

-I promoted "Gone" with my facebook status
-I wrote a positive review on (username: MizuiroMegami)
-Wrote another review on (
-Told my boyfriend that he was exactly like Cabel and should read Wake and Fade even though they are aimed towards girl readers
-Told one (of my only) friends to read it...and the school librarian
-Wish I could tweet but I don't have an account >.<
-Went in other people's dreams and told them to read it :D

I don't care if I win Gone (even though I want to)...but Wake or Fade would be good enough for me.

Thank you sooo much!


Bwyatt said...

I am extremely excited about GONE. I hate having to wait for new releases in series. I always end up reading the other books in the series several times waiting for the next! And, of course I have done that with WAKE and FADE!
When I saw this contest I knew just what to do. I read a lot, and I always share my faves with anyone who will listen. I've been wanting to start a NOTES list on Facebook about my favorite books so I decided to start with WAKE and FADE and lead with the release date of GONE! I posted it on my facebook page and also announced the release date, and how excited I am, in my status! I also told everyone to friend you and the book on facebook and visit your website.
I'm really excited about the chance to win an advanced copy of GONE. It's so hard to get Advanced copies of GREAT books these days. I used to work in a bookstore. If I win, I will certainly read it in a day and tell everyone I know about it!!!

Thanks for giving us these wonderful books.

I RT your tweet

I've been telling my book group at school for so long to read your books. My friend, the sponsor of my book club, and I came to your signing in Naperville this summer as a result of that, though I don't know if this counts.

Please enter me!! I need to know what happens in GONE, especially after you read the teaser chapters aloud at the signing!!!!!!

So far, I've:

♥ Retweeted your tweet about this contest. (@laiannafee)

♥ Posted the magic Lisa McMann widget on the front page of my website,

♥ Wrote a review a while back on that same site:

♥ Wrote reviews for WAKE & FADE on The name I used is "Laianna" & it said it could take up to 72 hours to post.

♥ Have told several friends about the series. Not sure how I'd prove that one. =P

♥ Have a picture of GONE's book cover in my universal signature on forums, etc. It's just the chair, but people keep asking me about it, it's so intriguing! =)

Will try to advertise more...

Anyway, love the books.
Can't wait to read GONE!

Msmaeghan said...

First of all, love the books more than I love oxygen and water.
Okay, what I did was recommend to my bagel and book club that we should read the book after we have finished the time travelers wife. I also reviewed the book on the Barnes and Noble, (rating it a five star read!!!) I told a whole bunch of my friends about how absolutely amazing it is and how if it is ever made into a movie, i want the part of Janie!!

Cathy Jo Nelson said...

Read my Tweet (link URL above). My high school kids LOVED Wake, and are already begging for Gone, and the one not yet released, Gone. Had to bring it home for the holidays to see. It is GREAT.

(And some may hate for saying so, but Im GLAD to see something my kids are more interested in than vampire and a wolf LOL)

CountessLaurie said...

Hi Lisa,

Here is how I shamelessly promoted your books during the month of November:

1) I stole your widget and put it on my blog.

2) I have tweeted about you and your books (@CountessLaurie)

3) I submitted a review on (as CountessLaurie)although it tells me it may take 72 hours to appear. I bet I receive 83 emails from them in that 72 hours.

4) I am promoting you and your books in my status on Facebook.

5) I wrote a book review on my blog -

6) I attempted to get the library to buy your books by requesting them. This backfired as they just inter-library-loaned them, but it did lead to a great conversation with the librarian about your books and why she should read them.

7) I made business cards with your website and book covers on one side, the Wake blurb on the other. I have passed out about 30 of these to everyone from friends to random people I have met using them as a springboard into why your books are so awesome. I was totally going to bring them to the 12:01 showing of New Moon, but in my haste forgot them (which sucks because that is totally your target audience). I posted a picture of the cards to my blog post as mentioned above so you can see them if you would like.

And for extra credit, I did remember that it was Cabel's birthday today and posted it to your wall and mine on Facebook :-)

Thanks for a chance to win a much coveted ARC! And for entertaining me!

Now if I could just find a way to get Borders to bring you up here for a reading, well, that would just make it all complete!!

First I’d like to say if I win I would like a copy of Gone
I made a poster and hung it from the screen on my patio announcing the release date of Gone and to read Wake. I unfortunately forgot to take a picture of it before returning home for Thanksgiving, but can post a photo when I return to college.
I also made another poster and posted it so it can be seen through the back windshield of my car. The poster says to read Gone by Lisa McMann and the release date. A picture I took of it can be seen under my Facebook album titled Lisa McMann Contest here:
I made a third poster and posted it in front of my window at home so it can be seen from the outside saying the same thing as the previous poster. A picture I took can be seen under my Facebook album titled Lisa McMann Contest here:
