Are You Ready to Fall for THE ART OF FALLING?

Hey, sweet readers.

By this point in my writing career, I've been fortunate enough to see a handful of books from first draft all the way through publication. I'm so happy that my friend Jenny Kaczorowski's debut, THE ART OF FALLING, is one of them. It was picked up by Bloomsbury Spark for its debut line, and they couldn't have made a more perfect choice to introduce us to the awesome books they have to offer.

I love this book so much that I couldn't help but convince Jenny that she really needed to give this book the star treatment in terms of promotion. Our amazing network of book bloggers jumped at the chance to help Jenny get the word out, and I'm so grateful, because I want you to meet these incredible, selfless bloggers, and I want them, and you, to hear about this awesome book!

But before we get to the blogging schedule, there's MORE to The #12DaysofFalling!

Jenny's doing a giveaway of 10 (TEN!) Awesome swag packs, including Skittles. You'll see why. (Ben = SWOON!) She's also offering up 5 copies of THE ART OF FALLING, and that's international to boot! I'll put the entry form at the end of this post - throw your hat in the ring!

In addition, every tweet OR Instagram anything about THE ART OF FALLING using the hashtag #12DaysofFALLING will get their name put in a drawing for MORE copies of the e-book (you could even give it as a late Christmas present to someone who just got an e-reader!)

If you want to Instagram about THE ART OF FALLING, here are a couple of conveniently square-sized images we worked up just for you to grab and re-post:

Finally, here's the mini-tour schedule of bloggers, who will be posting EXCLUSIVE excerpts from the book over the next couple weeks:

12/17 - Sam at The Book Corner
12/23 - Hafsah at Icey Books (with a review roundup!)
12/24 - Michelle at Much Loved Books
12/24 - Ava at The (brand-spankin' new!) Bibliobelles
12/26 - Laura at Literature and Laura 

And, of course, be sure to follow the #12DaysofFalling for more awesomeness over the next couple weeks. 

Here's the giveaway entry! Go crazy!
