New, New Dawn book give away

As you die-hard Janette Rallison fans know, (Hi Mom!)a year or so ago I wrote a chapter for the book New Dawn, which is a compilation of essays about the Twilight series.

Well, after New Dawn came out, Breaking Dawn came out, and the folks at Teen Libris wanted us to update our essays to include the Breaking Dawn book. So we did, and now the new and improved book is out.

Teen Libris sent me a copy to give away, so if you’re one of those people who can’t get enough Edward and Jacob, (And really, who can get enough of hot guys with super powers?) then leave a comment and at the end of the week I’ll list a winner.

Other cool authors who contributed to the series are: Ellen Hopkins, Susan Vaught, Megan McCafferty, Rosemary Clement-Moore, Anne Ursu, Linda Gerber, Ellen Steiber, K.A. Nuzum, Cara Lockwood, Cassandra Clare, James A. Owen (yes, there are guys who’ve read the series!) Robin Brande, and Rachel Caine

    A book of essays huh? Sounds interesting! I love everything you write, so I’d love to see what you have to write about Twilight! 😉

    I would rather hear about Jacob than Edward, but hey, any new book is welcomed in my library.

    Ooo, ooo, that would look so good next to all my signed Project Book Babe Books (including a fabulous My Fair Godmother by a wonderful author who was so sweet when I met her that day *winks*) And I swear I’m not just saying that to score points!

    lol! I am much like Shannon up there – I would love to put this one near my Project Book Babe books especially my copy of How to Take the Ex out of Ex-Boyfriend… ;o)
    Seriously though I am just like all the other fans here, I love to read, I love the series and I love your books. You are so much fun. I am blessed just to have met you & to have journeyed into the lives you have created.
    Hopefully I will win this one if not – be sure my Barnes & Noble will be getting a visit. :o)

    I would so love to win this book to give to my sister as a Christmas present. She would go nuts. (And of course, I’d read it before I wrapped it up.)

    I think it is intersting that there is a book about twilight. Usually, we wait until the artist is dead before we recognize them in this way. Is this book supported by Stephenie Meyer? I don’t know what the essays cover, but the whole Twilight thing has changed reading.
    I, like many comments before me, love to read. I have a sad addiction, one I try to cure, but to no availe I still buy books instead of clothes or food. Help me out!!

    The publishers of this book, Teen Libris, do a whole series of books about other authors’ series. I also did a chapter in Mind Rain which is about Scott Westerfeld’s Ugly series. He edited that book–which was really cool, because he knew the series better than anyone.

    He could tell us to add details or consider different things. It was really neat to work with him.

    Stephenie didn’t edit this book–I wish she had, but I think she was busy writing Breaking Dawn at the time. So this is completely unauthorized.
