RAISED BY WOLVES ARTWORK MY ARC Tour

OK, this is a very exciting tour and I'm about to tell you why. Thanks to Quercus Children's books I have been sent two ARC's of Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes to go in a tour. This however is a tour with a difference so let me explain...

Each blogger will be given the opportunity to WRITE in the ARC. And I'm not just talking a message in the front, I'm talking about writing ANYTHING, ANYWHERE and in ANY format. It can be inside the book or you can attach post it notes and postcards. The notes can relate to specific lines in the book, any specific note to Jennifer or something about whatever you're feeling at the time when reading. It doesn't matter what it is. You can circle, underline things, comment in the margin, draw pictures, ANYTHING. Basically, there is no limit to what you can write. Obviously it has to be polite and respectful though, that goes without saying.

The idea is to send two ARC's - one for annotating and one to read incase the annotated one becomes too distracting to read. THEN...and this is the big news... the annotated ARC will be presented to Jennifer at a bloggers party when she comes over to the UK in October. AND YOU COULD BE THERE TO MEET HER!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOT! There is no confirmed date as of yet but I will keep you updated.

Quercus have requested that each blogger takes a photograph of the book before and after it leaves them so they can make a document about the book's journey. It will be showcased on the Quercus main blog and reviews will be linked.

So, what do you say guys? Are you in? I sure am! If you're not familiar with the book, check out the GoodReads description here. As always, just leave me a comment with your name and e mailaddress if you want to sign up for this. Also, don't forget to read the rules before participating.

Just to be clear, if you have already read Raised by Wolves YOU CAN STILL SIGN UP to annotate the ARC.

TOUR NOW CLOSED FOR SIGNUPS.
