CONTEST CLOSED


These Are ARCS. They are donated by a very very very very very very very nice author. (wish I was her daughter, lol) (above books)


OPEN TO EVERYONE
(Big box, only US, the arcs I'm giving, EVERYONE)


Option 1:
Recreate One Of The Book Images in a post on your blog or include the link to your post. Be Creative. Have fun. Take A Picture, Make A Picture. Include yourself, include others, be creative.

Option 2: Make Your Own Cover Based On The Title Of The Book. Be creative.

Option 3: Recreate Something Like Fate. Be Creative! I love love love this cover.

This contest is based solely on creativity and what the hosts, myself and the author think are the most creative.

There will be voting rounds. So Please come back and vote!

Bonus Pictures: YOU WILL NOT WIN THESE BOOKS
these are my top wishlist books, so I'm adding them in to use for the recreations:



Winner 1 Will Recieve the ARCS in the picture above (the 9 arcs). From the donator, not me. (I do not own these books, I've had people emailing me asking to borrow them!)

Winner 2
Will Recieve a mystery 2010 ARC (its a surprise) will be based off your votes.


Be Sure to leave Link in mr linky AND under comments make a comment so we know whose is whose link.

Contest Ends in a few days, I'll let ya know. a few people asked for an extension.

(You can create up to two each, 1 of different ones) (not 2 creations of the same one) (Basically if you do option 3, you can have up to 3 creations)

can you explain more about this contest?

Cindy said...

Give me a sec, typing up rules now. LOL

Lea said...

^^I second Cynthia's question, because I don't understand. There's no rules written :(

Justine said...

HOLY MOLY!

Cynthia said...

when are they due?

Dani. said...

in my post can i put up more than one recreation?
or does it have to be just one?

Cindy said...

Dani, you can create up to two pictures. So you could do 2 seperate pictures (not 2 of the same book) if that makes sense.

Justine said...

So if we do 2, does that mean we'll have 2 entries?

Cindy said...

Yep, 2 entries into contest. I'm going to make a 4th winner into this. So technically 3 entries (the 3rd will be the 3rd option.)

Dani. said...

thanks for clarifying.
i'm going to go and get my creative juice flowing now:)

Cindy said...

OK ALL UPDATED! ALOT OF WINNERS. This is my contribution in books to contest. I had something planned for tomorrow, but this is much cooler!

Brodie said...

Wow, what an awesome contest! Just curious - so is this only open to people who have blogs? Or can people without a blog just post a link to the image?

Cindy said...

No, its open to everyone. Only winner 3 is based on blogs, everyone can enter. But if your international only for the ones i'm giving. I need to make note on that.

Alessandra said...

I want to take part in this, too! Although I probably do not possess a single creative bone in my body, I posted my book cover for Before I Fall by Lauren Olivier on the Mister Linky. Hope you like it!

I also invited people to join this competition. Here's my blog post: http://alessandrasplace.blogspot.com/2009/10/big-box-challenge-at-princess-bookie.html

Good luck to all participants in this awesome contest!

Everyone has posted gorgeous covers so far! You guys have amazing talent =D

I attempted one for Fallen - http://img245.imageshack.us/img245/9401/fallencover.png

(International entrant!)

Thank for you for all the awesome contests!!

Brodie said...

D'oh... I forgot to put the author's name on it. Well, let's just pretend it's written in invisible ink LOL

barnsdale11 said...

I have a question, because I didn't really understand it in the rules. If I want to post the covers (I mean, the "options" you gave), do I have to be from the US?

What part exactly is open internationally?

barnsdale11 said...

Okay, here is the link to my entry:

http://librojoven.blogspot.com/2009/10/cosas-raras-para-concursos-raros.html

I did "Before I fall" and "Fallen". I think they are both Option2, but that's up to you to decide. There is one thing I didn't really get: you said that you couldn't enter twice the same one, but where you talking about different books, or different Options?

Thank you for the contest!!

My email:

librojoven@hotmail.com

Cindy said...

Barnsdale, what I mean is you can not win the big box, the 9 arcs, that would be expensive to ship internationally but I'm willing to send my arcs out of the US, no problem! So submit away

Flamingo1325 said...

Posted at first but then got inspiration for an actual entry, so its up now too =)

Flamingo1325 said...

And just realized that I put the wrong link on the mr. linky... so, urm, here it is *blushes like an idiot*

http://agoodaddiction.blogspot.com/

Lea said...

Brodie: Your cover is gorgeous! *so jealous*, lol. Oh, that could totally be a book cover,

barnsdale11 said...

Here I am again ^_^

i have a paypal account. Could it be shipped internationally if I afforded the costs??? please???

Well, i have changed my submission: now i have 2 submissions: one option 1 for GONE, and one option 2 for Before I fall.

They are here:

http://librojoven.blogspot.com/2009/10/cosas-raras-para-concursos-raros.html

You can see that I have tried hard... :) So... could it be possible, if I paid the costs?

See you :)

towerofbooks said...

I really like this contest. My entry is number 16, and I did option 2. :)

Kate said...

Sorry, just to clarify, if I'm from the UK, what can I enter for? And do I just pick one option?

Cindy said...

Kate:
You can pick any option you want, or do more than one. Each person can do up to 2, UNLESS you also do something like fate(so 3 if it includes something like fate)

Barnsdale: I'll ask the author about that. No clue what shipping will be though.

KatieDoll said...

I might add a second one on later, to that same post. Just a heads up. :)

Michelle said...

Okay, just posted this on my blog:

http://seemichelleread.blogspot.com/2009/10/big-box-challenge-at-princess-bookie.html

I did Scarlett Fever - great contest, it was a lot of fun!!

Cindy said...

For people who add another one, make sure you comment here and tell me.

Kate said...

I'm entrant number 19 (on the Mr Linky) and I did option two. I'm still a little confused but I'm hoping that what I said/did fit in with the rules. I'm from the UK. I'll check back here so if I've done anything wrong just drop a note on this post. Sorry.

Cindy said...

The options are just to expand Kate. You did it right.

And Something Like Fate, is its own category under one of them, as of now, only 2 people competing for that prize. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Someone will answer I'm sure, if I'm not online at the time.

Kate said...

I'm entry number 25 as well =)
That's my option 3: Something Like Fate =D

barnsdale11 said...

Thank you for trying :)

Don't worry about the shipment. I've paid expensive shipments before, but they are usually more affordable than buying the books themselves ;)

Erica said...

I now entered another one - meaning that there's 2 covers - one for the Unwritten Rule and one for Something Like Fate.
