ONE giveaway - Custom art by Andrea Hannah


Hi, sweet readers.

I'm all emotional today. You know that I believe in a few things when it comes to this whole crazy publishing business.
One is that the people who love you and your book are POWERFUL when it comes to getting the word out.
Another is that one of the best ways to promote art (yes, I'm calling my book art, hush.) is with other art.

Well, I'm very lucky that one of the people who loves me and ONE most in the whole world also happens to be a super talented artist. Combine those two things and it's like one of Andrea Hannah's superpowers (along with writing heartbreakingly beautiful characters and poetic prose) is creating stunning custom art for ONE. 

Yeah. I know. "Lucky" doesn't even begin to cover it. 

She had this idea, to take some of the things that most moved her about ONE and to translate them into custom minimalist prints with a mixed-media feel. 

I didn't really give her much guidance, because I wanted to see what SHE loved about the book. It was a great instinct, because OMG YOU GUYS LOOK:



That's a quote from Merrin, and it's one of her most emotionally bare moments in the whole book. She's taking a huge risk by admitting that, and guess what?  I had totally forgotten about that line.

But Andrea picked up on it. Isn't it BEAUTIFUL?

I'm so excited that Andrea and I are giving away the signed print that you see above!

All  you have to do is leave a comment below, telling us which quote you would most like to see made into a custom print. It could be your book or any book in the whole wide world! We're just book geeks, so satisfy our curiosity about what you think are some of literature's most art-worthy lines. (Oh! And tweet about it for an extra entry, if you please.)

Thanks, sweeties! *smooosh* And good luck!!!!

  1. Does poetry count? Because:

    "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"

    -Mary Oliver

    Love, love, love that line.

    AND also:

    "How do you give someone a piece of the sky?"

    From the Book Thief.

  5. I would have to go with "I don't have any tears-I spent them" from August Wilson's play Fences. That line just encompasses so many things from all of his plays, not just that one.

  6. Is it international??

    Quotes!! Let's see...

    "I will live as a Narnian, even if there isn't any Narnia. And I will be on Aslan's side, even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it" - The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair.

    "Even a traitor may mend. I have known one who did" - Edmund Pevensie. The Chronicles of Narnia: The horse and his boy.

    "Further up and further in!" - The Chronicles of Narnia: The Last Battle.

    God, I love Narnia!

    Also, "I love you. Remember. They cannot take it" from Delirium.

    "Her hands were freezing, just like they always were; so I warmed them, just like I always did" - Adam. Where She Went. Gayle Forman.

    "I force my eyes upward to look at Mia for the first time. She's still beautiful; not in an obvious Vanessa LeGrande, Bryn Shraeder kind of way. In a quiet way that's always been devastating to me" - Adam. Where She Went. Gayle Forman. (I love this quote so so so much!!)

  7. "I was young enough I still believed in more" - from my WIP :)

  8. Oh wow that is so gorgeous! I love it! It's just so perfect and simple and emotional and powerful.

    Okay, my favourite quote always is "we're all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars" by oscar wilde.

    But a contemporary one I love from Lauren Oliver (before I fall):

    That’s when I realized that certain moments go on forever. Even after they’re over they still go on, even after you’re dead and buried, those moments are lasting still, backward and forward, on into infinity. They are everything and everywhere all at once.
    They are the meaning.

    Thanks for this great opportunity!

    I also tweeted: https://twitter.com/strandedhero/status/307349143662239744

  9. "We're running, or we're dying."

    from The Year of Lightning :)

  10. Here is a quote from one of my novels that might be good for her to muse with:

    ------

    "Should we just give up, should we not try?" Jooka asks Peter. "We are trying to do something good here."

    "If you call being a predator a good thing, to rape and pillage. Who are you trying to master?"

    "Everybody needs to be mastered. People want to be told what to do."

    Peter Goodstone surveys the room and speaks directly to Jooka: "No, your wrong. You need to be master because you can't get along with the world unless you control it. But your utopian idea of the company providing all the answers is a lie. All you do is take from everyone."

    Jooka takes a drink. "Are you going to kill me?"

    "No, Jooka, you're already dead. That's your body over there on the floor. I'm praying over you now, giving you your last rites."

  11. Love it! This has become one of my favorite book quotes:

    "...try to remember that dreams do come true, but they don't come easily." --Dreamless by Josephine Angelini

  12. Your book is definitely art! One of my favorite quotes:

    "Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but - I hope - into a better shape." --Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

  13. What a lovely print!

    As for the quote I want to share, it's not particularly deep or moving at first read, but it makes me laugh and has hidden depths. I think it would make a great print!

    “Most books on witchcraft will tel you that witches work naked. This is because most books on witchcraft were written by men.”

    It's from Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

  14. I have tons and tons of quotes I love but they're too long. So here's a short one from Tempest by Julie Cross:

    "Nothing went exactly right. And yet it was perfect."

    And woah, Andrea, that's some serious talent! I wish I could do art but meh, I can just stare and admire and appreciate them. Thank you for the giveaway~
