It's been so much fun sending SUMMER OF SLOANE bookmarks around the world and it got me thinking...
How awesome would it be to see actual pictures of SLOANE bookmarks wherever they've landed? Sloane in the Philippines? Sloane in the UK? Sloane in El Salvador? Sloane in the Netherlands? Sloane in ___________? I'd love to see all the places she's traveled to so far!
So, here's the plan:
- If you've already received a SUMMER OF SLOANE bookmark, take it somewhere awesome where you live and snap a picture with the bookmark -- show me your town / city / country / a famous landmark / whatever!!!
- Share that picture on Twitter or Instagram (or both!) and make sure to tag the following:
A. Twitter: @ErinLSchneider1
B. Instagram: @ErinLSchneider (no 1 on the end)
C. Include the hashtag: #SLOANEAroundTheWorld
- Don't have a SLOANE bookmark yet? Email ALL of the following:
Links to either your Twitter or Instagram accounts (or both)
To: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll do my best to send one your way! But PLEASE keep in mind the following before requesting -- you must be following me either on Twitter and / or Instagram and you also must be a book / YA lover / blogger / reader. I will not send bookmarks to anyone that is looking for a freebie and I will be checking to make sure the above is adhered to.
- Giveaway will run from today, December 21, 2015 through February 29, 2016, in order to give everyone time to receive bookmarks, take the best picture, and get it posted!
- Images will then be shared here on my blog, from March 1, 2016 through March 11, 2016 -- and open during that time for votes from all viewers.
- The image with the most votes, wins!!! Of course, just to make it official, the winning picture will be announced on Monday, March 14, 2016!
And what's up for grabs for the best picture you might ask? The image that gets the most votes will receive the following:
- One signed ARC of SUMMER OF SLOANE
- 10 signed Summer Of Sloane bookmarks to share + one personalized to the winner!
- SOS buttons
- SOS tattoos "Memento Vivere" - once you read SLOANE, you'll know why!
- One bottle of Vinylux nail polish in Desert Poppy -- this shade even makes an appearance in SLOANE!
- SOS stickers
- You can be in the picture too, as long as the bookmark is clearly visible!
- Get creative! The better the picture, the more votes you'll get!
- All entrants must follow either my Twitter or Instagram accounts for valid entry.
- Picture must be posted on either Twitter or Instagram by 11:59pm PST on February 29, 2016 for valid entry.
- Picture must also include my handles (you can tag me to the photo on Twitter) and the hashtag for valid entry.
- Giveaway is INTERNATIONAL and open to all book lovers around the world! Note: Giveaway and request for bookmarks is only open to those truly interested in books / reading / YA / blogging / etc. -- I will be checking and voiding any entries from handles that are promotional / giveaway / contest seeking individuals.
- All images entered will be shared by me on Twitter, Instagram, and my blog.

I can't wait to see where all SLOANE gets to go!!! Good luck to all and Happy Holidays, too!!!
