The Massive Losing Better Giveaway

ETA: THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU! 

Well, we knew it had to happen. Yes, it is time for a big old-fashioned Superpowered Love Giveaway. (Okay it is not that old fashioned, but I've done it for all the book since Riot Boy, so now it's a thing.) This one has music and books mentioned in the story--Gabriel's favorite band Suede and Andrew's favorite poet Langston Hughes--but also hilariously cheesy FBI swag. Yes, you too can produce something and say, "FBI, motherfucker!" 

Here's the deal:

1. Check out the book! (Optional, but still amusing.)
2. Choose a prize pack. (A, B, or C.)
3. Comment on this post right here with your choice. (If you're seeing this on a feed, such as at GoodReads, please click through to kateyhawthorne.com so they get numbered in order.)
4. Make sure to leave a way to contact you. (Twitter handle, email, blog address, goodreads username, anywhere that isn't locked down so I can find you if you win.)

Prize Pack A:
-One eBook copy of Losing Better
-One CD of Suede - Singles
-FBI lanyard

Prize Pack B:
-One eBook copy of Losing Better
-FBI mini-flashlight

Prize Pack C:
-$10 gift card to the Loose Id store
-One CD of Suede - Singles
-FBI patch

Notes: Suede is an amazing band, Langston Hughes is my favorite American poet, and the FBI swag is truly ridiculous.



The giveaway is open from 6pm February 6th to 6pm February 13 to all--no country restrictions. All comments will be numbered and then random.org will draw a winner for each of the prizes. Good luck.

(FBI, motherfucker! ... sorry, Gabriel made me. It's a thing of his.)

Thanks for the contest! I would love a chance at prize pack C! The patch is too fun to ignore and I could probably get a couple books, including Losing Better, out of a $10 GC!

Looks neat! Wandered in via Tumblr (tygati's link, I think? I'm "lrodell" there). I'd like a chance at prize pack B or C. Contact: @lrodell on Twitter

OK, I have finally decided, with help from YouTube, my "poetry/plays" shelf (which lives in my dining room under the Wedgwood, go fig, huh?) and the likelihood of me buying for myself a book vs. a CD... oh, and a quarter (heads!)

So, drop me in the hat for A, please.

Gaw! I'm so indecisive! They all have stuff I like! Am I allowed to pick all 3? I like all 3 prize packs, so I'll go with A, B, and C. If I can't, let me know and I'll try and pick just one, lol.
