Okaaaaaaay, Here's What's Going Down!

In the next five days, Steph’s (my) blog will be taken over by Awesome.

Awesome authors are going to stop by to give their two cents on an array of different topics, all of them pertaining to being a girl. (No, it’s not like those horrid videos we watched in 5th grade all over again. Give me some credit, will you?)

They’ll be talking about feminism back in the day, body image, social stigma, health, friendship, fashion, and other topics like such. There will be posts about women’s rights. Etc.

Awesome books are gonna get reviewed. (A little secret between you and me—none of the reviews have been written yet. None. We’ll see how I manage.)

And if you couldn’t care less, here’s something to tip the scale: Giveaways. A whole freakin’ lot of them. For a great many books, too.

So, stick around to find out the guest list. You’ll probably recognize some of the names. The ones you don’t, you’ll hopefully get a good introduction to.

Here’s the info I can give you now:

Prizes will range from cosmetics (really) to ARCs for 09 books (good ones!). (Ahem.) Contests are open to anyone and everyone, everywhere. So you international folk (abroad = awesome!), count yourselves in. :)

Fourteen authors are stopping by.

Um, the reviews will probably all suck as none are written yet, but yeah. There’ll be plenty of that, too.

The more you participate, the greater chance you'll have of winning said ARCs and books and etc.

All of it is in the name of feminism and strong YA heroines. Where would we be without them all?

Edited: Girl Week has begun! Click here to see a list of all that's been posted so far.

Hey! Wow got some great authors checking this out. I just wanted to let you know Girl Week's already begun. Here's the table of contents: http://reviewerx.blogspot.com/2008/12/girl-week-table-of-contents.html

So cool, Steph. What a great week!

If you ever decide to do this again with authors who have written about preteen girls who are destined to become strong women, think of me?

;)

You ROCK!

Hey! For some reason, this embedded comment form makes most people click twice before the comment is processed and published. It's not you - it's just that it's a new Blogger feature with kinks and all that. (But I adore it and don't wanna get rid of it!) I removed Captcha to make the process easier. You don't have to rewrite the comments twice; just click on SUBMIT twice and it should work. If not, email me. Thanks! -Steph
