message 1: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 7 comments To celebrate the paperback release of Lock and Key (on May 14th) and my new community site Sarah-land (open now!) I'm having a CONTEST. Here's the idea. We got to thinking about the idea of Sarahland, and what it really means: to me, it's the idea that I've always tried to make my books take place, well, anywhere. Sure, there's Lakeview, and Colby, but in my mind, it could just as easily be your town, or my town, or anytown. So with that in mind, we'd like to see what Sarahland looks like where YOU are. Confused? Don't be. Here's the idea: take a picture of something where YOU live that reminds you of one of my books. Here are a few examples, from MY hometown:




Here's how you enter:
1. Take a picture, add your own quotes or text.
2. Send it in an email (as an attachment) to sarah at sarah dessen dot com. You'll receive an autoresponse, which will let you know we got your entry. Put your full name in the body of the email. Only one entry per person, please. This contest is open only to US residents.
3.The photos must be original (we'll disqualify any that look like they are stock images, sorry). By sending us your image, you give us permission to post it on Sarah-land, my blog, and my Facebook fan page.
4. We'll accept entries until midnight EST Sunday, May 10th.
5. We'll pick our favorites and announce winners on or around May 14th, when Lock and Key is published in paperback.

FIRST PRIZE: A lock and key necklace, USWIM t-shirt, signed copy of Lock and Key AND advance copy of Along for the Ride
SECOND PRIZE: USWIM shirt and signed copy of Lock and Key, advance copy of Along for the ride
THIRD PRIZE: Signed copies of Lock and Key and Along for the Ride

I was wondering, does it have to be a line from the books? Like... I know we have to take a picture of what one of the scenes we thought from the books, but do we have to include a quote?


message 11: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 7 comments Nope. Sarah used quotes but it is not a requirement. Most people have been including quotes in order to make sure their reason for that choice of picture is adequately explained.

Amelia (ameliarobinson) | 12 comments Wow. That'll get the creative juices flowing! Well thought out!

I gasped when I saw the first prize, it being an advanced copy of "Along for the Ride". *That* is totally enough motivation for me to enter.

*amazement* Wow. I've never entered a contest like this before. Ha! Cooooolio.

Now I gotta think about what to take a picture of...*wanders of mumbling to self*

Lol
I'd be happy with 3rd!

Thanks Parker!
Sorry! I was also curious about one more thing. Can it be an object? Or must it be a place? Like I saw that Sarah had used her dog Roscoe, and her Key Necklace


message 14: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 7 comments I guess it can be a thing, we're getting some of both. Whatever reminds you of her books!
