Goodreads Choice Award Nomination and CNV Giveaway  
Code Name Verity has been nominated for a Goodreads Choice Award! THANK YOU, incredibly loyal readers, especially those who frequent Goodreads! I have never had a year like this in my 20 years of publishing, for real. It’s a little overwhelming but feels so good. "Thanks for reading" doesn’t really do you guys justice. "Thanks for enrolling in the CNV Special Ops" is more like it.

So, this Goodreads Choice Award is a particularly flattering achievement because it's chosen by readers, and if you've got a Goodreads account, you can vote in the awards process yourself. There are 15 nominees each in 20 different categories - CNV is nominated in "Young Adult Fiction." Click through the link above, or the badge on the sidebar, to vote. (I've got the links connected to the YA Fiction category but you can get to all the other categories through there too.)

The opening round ends 11 November 2012. Just a week! Please spread the word.

To celebrate I'm throwing another CNV giveaway: three autographed and inscribed copies, one British, one American and one Canadian. Comment if you want to be included in the draw for any of them. If you've already got one, comment if you want me to send one to a friend! Giveaway closes 12 November 2012.

You all know there's another book on the way, right? The contract is signed and it's all official and everything. The title is still under discussion (sigh sigh sigh). But the book is finished. Publication planned for Autumn 2013!

Lots of love to you all from E Wein.

thank you! (my LJ interface is acting up a bit... worried these posts may come out kinda weird)

A new book from you is always welcome! I'd ask questions, but I'm sure you'll tell us when you're ready to tell us.

CNV is going among my friends like a rumor, or a whisper: "Read this. I can't tell you why, you just have to read it." And the next person reads it and is blown over and passes the book to three more people. It's making its way through enormous networks of people this way, I think, and it deserves to.

I have a "tell all" (or a bit more, anyway) post coming up in the next couple of weeks. patience! actually I'm totally apprehensive about the readability of the next book. I guess I'd better downplay that and remain upbeat in my online presence.

I love your CNV networking story. I. Love. It.

I have voted for CNV. Will spread the word.

thank you so much!

(Grrr. I commented once already, but LJ signed me out and made me anonymous.)

Yay! I'm so excited for you and CNV. There were so many good books on the list, but there was no way I could ignore Maddie and Verity. You got my vote. :)

You know I'm all over this giveaway. I'll also be all over your Ravensbruck novel as soon as it's out. Thanks for the chance to win!
E Weineegatland on November 7th, 2012 04:04 pm (UTC)
you are lovely as always! thank you! (and sorry about LJ signing you out. I have been struggling with it a bit myself lately.)

Congratulations on the well-deserved nomination! Code Name Verity is fantastic, and has my vote as well.

I would definitely be thrilled to have an autographed copy, so please count me in.

Looking forward to the next book already!
E Weineegatland on November 7th, 2012 04:05 pm (UTC)
thank you! and I hope the next book lives up to CNV's rather high standards. (it's different, anyway.)

Congrats! Thats so awesome. I'm so glad because more people need to love your books. All the friends I've had read The Winter Prince have loved it, and my copy of CNV is currently lent out to one of them.

Autographed copy? I want one! I already have a copy, but I have friends who need to read it :D
E Weineegatland on November 7th, 2012 04:06 pm (UTC)
thanks for the congrats and the sharing of books!

Hope it's ok that I don't have a LJ account.

I do already own a copy of CNV but would love to be included in the contest (and would send my original copy to a friend). And I already voted, and would love to see a win because CNV is hands down *my* favorite book of the year (in any category). Maybe two years. Just ... awesome.

Anyway, please include me. Some info (not sure if it's needed since I'm incognito):

Yay on the new book!! And congrats on the nomination!

This is such a wonderful book. As I still don't have a copy of my own yet, I'd love to be included in the draw for a signed copy.
E Weineegatland on November 7th, 2012 04:07 pm (UTC)
thank you, and done!

Autumn 2013! That feels like it's actually really soon! Yaaay.
E Weineegatland on November 7th, 2012 04:08 pm (UTC)
I know. It *does* feel soon. I am itching to start editing it but the 3 editors need to all read it first!

Congratulations! A reason to look forward to next autumn.

And if I could also be added to the drawing?
E Weineegatland on November 7th, 2012 04:09 pm (UTC)
of course - and thank you!

I voted last week for Code Name Verity! Such a beautiful and amazing book--I've been recommending it to everyone I know.
Thank you for the giveaway--I'm keeping my fingers crossed. :) And thank you, so much, for all the work you did writing a wonderful story, persevering through the hard days, and giving it to us.
E Weineegatland on November 7th, 2012 04:11 pm (UTC)
thank you! and you're welcome. I really appreciate that "persevering through the hard days" thought.
Sheilaliteraryfangirl on November 8th, 2012 11:59 am (UTC)
Part of me is torn because there are so many beautiful books on the list, and the other part is ecstatic that there are so many choices. I have to say, though, that what decides it for me is the friendship between Maddie and Julie :) It's so rare to have a book that's just about strong friendship. I love it :D

Also, I am INCREDIBLY EXCITED for this new book! I'm going to miss Maddie and Julie like crazy though. I feel the sudden urge to read CNV again...
E Weineegatland on November 9th, 2012 07:17 pm (UTC)
I always feel a little guilty going 'vote for me.' just go vote, it's fun, there are some great books out there!

But I'm so glad you connected with the friendship. When I wrote the book it kind of took over - I didn't set out to make it the theme of the story, and it definitely became that. And then when it was done I felt like I'd done something different and wonderful.

I hope the new book doesn't disappoint!

Proud to be a member of CNV Special Ops. I'd love a signed copy (and will shamelessly pinch Ferox's if she wins!) ;-)

Methinks you'd be right. Rollin up my sleeves now...
ferox: kissferoxargentea on November 15th, 2012 09:03 am (UTC)
I'm not going to fight. Just going to intercept the postman.
