Win an annotated copy of PAWN and a pawn necklace!

Normally I blog over at Wordpress, but because Rafflecopter doesn't work there, I'm over here today with a giveaway I am SO excited about.

Win an annotated copy of PAWN and a sterling silver pawn necklace!


While you've been waiting for November 26th (the day PAWN comes out - only one more week!), I've been going through a finished hardcover edition of PAWN to make notes, comments, and the occasional bad joke and doodle about both the story and my experience writing and editing it. My handwriting's a bit messy (or a lot messy) at times, but this is a one-of-a-kind, exclusive annotated version that no one else will have.

In addition, you'll also be winning a sterling silver pawn necklace (pictured hanging from the book). I bought one of these from rocklove.com (completely unaffiliated! just love their jewelry) over the summer, and it's one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. In honor of PAWN's release, I'm giving away a matching necklace. Even if you're not much of a jewelry person, with the holidays coming up. it'd make a great gift.

How do you enter? Easy - just fill out the form below. And don't forget to pick up your copy of PAWN on Tuesday, November 26th!

That's a tough question. I think if I had a chance I'd like to be John Green. Cause he's awesome.

Em said...

Ummmm, I have no idea. This could take some serious thinking.

Victoria said...

No one - I like who I am.

evrythngzen said...

This is going to sound totally cheesy but I don't know that I would want to, I'm pretty happy just being me. I live a charmed life with adventures and friends and work and love. LOL

Cianna Reider said...

Hmmm... probably.. Jennifer Lawrence.. a day in her life might be fun.

Dyanna Herrera said...

I don't think there is anyone I would want to be

Bookaholics said...

Hmmm.... I don't know really. There are so many people that I would like to be. I would like to be Selena Gomez for a day. Other than that I like being me.

Liss said...

Guess i would chose Hermione Granger and immerge into the wonderful, magical world of harry potter. :)

Ruth Silver said...

Oh that's tough! I'm not sure I'd want to BE someone else, but to hang out with them would be cool.

lillyrosenight . said...

That's a tough one but if I had to choose I would say... I'm not really sure. There are so many people that I would love to be but at the same time I just want to be myself because I've found that I love myself for who I am.

Laura J. said...

I'm doing this for my daughter. She's having a hard time answering. So far she has Annabeth from the Percy Jackson books.

Taylor Stock said...

I would probably be anyone else seeing as i grew up with no parents and living with an abusive uncle, i would be happy to be anyone else

Stephanie said...

I really like being me, but if I could be someone wealthy enough to travel the world and see all the places I'd love to see, well, that would be pretty awesome.

Nancy Allen said...

Scarlett O'hara from Gone With the Wind.

Courtney N. said...

I don't know if I could choose to be someone else. Maybe with a lot of time to think. Could I just be them for one day? haha

Cate said...

I'd be Taylor Swift, if I could sing... ;P

TheWormisAwesome said...

Jennifer Lawrence... Hello, I could be Katniss, and Mystique... Awesome!!

TheWormisAwesome said...

Jennifer Lawrence. I could be Katniss and Mystique... Awesome!!

Aredhel Elanessë said...

I would like to be me again :) I'm happy in my life. I need more books, much time, etc. But I'm good about who I am :)

Jenny @ Book Sojourner said...

Wow, tough question. Honestly, I'm pretty content with who I am. But I wouldn't mind being masked and a bystander at some interesting historical or theatrical events.
~ Jenny V. ~

Emma Thomas said...

I think it'd be fun to spend a day in the life of Saoirse Ronan.

Cate said...

I would like to be masked as Hermione Granger. That way I could live in the wonderful wizarding world and be someone who has a personality similar to my own.

Usa said...

Catwoman.

Fallon Vaughn said...

My children cause they have know worries lol

Jessica @ a GREAT read said...

Uhh...how about Herminone Granger! I love to be able to wield magic! Or even Selene from the Underworld movies! She can kick some major a$$!

Caryn Pine said...

I'd want to be Rick Riordan so I could write about Mythology all the time.

Isabel C said...

I have no idea! I honestly like me life a lot, but if I had to choose someone like Wendy Higgins, Richelle Mead, or Jennifer L Armentrout!

Veray said...

If I did that who would take care of my 11 children and my wonderful husband. Although if I could do it for a short while and take a holiday I think it would be Sleeping Beauty so I could take a nice long nap. :)

BellaColella said...

OMG I don’t know, maybe someone younger so I can start again and make sure I do everything I know now what I did not then!! heheeh;) But then again there are so many!! hahah GREAT GIVEAWAY!!

BlueBox Bookreader said...

I want to be Zorro! I love the dark cape, but especially the sword.

Morgana said...

I choose to be a witch, i want magical powers

Danielle D said...

I'd want to be Alice from Alice on Wonderland

Daisel Tamayo said...

Mmmm. That is a really tricky question. I don't think there is anyone that is worth enough, I don't think I will be able to live with someone else body/face but IF I have to choose because is a matter of life or death, I would choose Tahereh Mafi, she is amazing! Lol
Thanks for the giveaway!

Jasmine Albitos said...

I don't think I would want to take over anyone's life. Many times, people's lives are not what it seems. It's already tough enough living your own life, but to "walk in someone else's shoes"....I believe I would pass.

Madori Bernal said...

I think for me, I'd choose Adelaide Kane. She's an Australian actress. Beautiful, smart, funny. Don't get me wrong, I like who I am. But if definitely would be fun to play Mary Queen of Scots on her CW show Reign. :)

Cassie said...

I would choose a government official, because then there would be some sense in the government.

Leeanna said...

Warren Buffett. All that money!

skyblue527 said...

I'd choose...Paul McCartney.

Enna P. said...

Jennifer Lawrence

Kelly said...

I'll love to be Ash Ketchum. I mean, Pokemon are real after all! ;D

Kaelyn said...

Hmmm can I be whoever is going to be Alex Pettyfer's wife? :D

Stephanie Ehmann said...

I have always loved Keller from Night World Witchlight. I guess I loved that she is bad ass and could turn into a Panther and be as sleek and sneaky:)

Emily said...

I would choose to be myself. If I'm not me, who would be? Why would I want to see how great or horrible someone else's life is, when my life is perfectly fine the way it is. :)

May said...

I love the Princess Catherine! The hair!

Kaitlyn Mitchell said...

Lily Collins definitely

Becca said...

Not sure who I would want to become since everyone has their problems, so I would just chose me.

Michaela Williams said...

I would be Kerry Washington so I could have the cute clothes :)

Anonymous said...

Hm, I don't actually know... I'm not sure if I'd want to be someone else.

Angela C.

WinterFaerie said...

I think it'd be fun to be a celebrity every now and then. I'd probably be Taylor Swift! I love her!

Nicole said...

Maybe Taylor Swift or Beyonce, or someone who looks like they are having a lot of fun lately. Thanks for a chance to win!

Night Angel said...

Quite honestly, I love myself, even though I have bajillions of flaws...

Holly U said...

I'd love to be Masked as a celebrity for a day. Any celebrity to see what it's like being famous. Though, I wouldn't want it for life. I'm happy being me. :)

Cesya MaRae Cuono said...

Honestly, I think I'd be myself.

Angeline Berd said...

If it's for a day, I'd love to be Jennifer Lawrence and hang out with other actors from Catching Fire.

Sasha @ The Bookshelf said...

Oh gosh. I'd love to be Masked as a celebrity, like a singer or something... Rihanna or Beyonce, just to see what it's like! But I'm glad it would be for a short while, I wouldn't want it to be permanent :)

Sayomay said...

Hermonie Granger or the main character from Graceling! It would be awesome to do magic and to have power of survival! :D
Mary G Loki

Yvonne said...

Don't know that I'd want to be some one else...even for a day.

Katherine Walsh said...

I would have to follow Shakespeare's advice, "to thine own self be true", and be who I was born to be, myself!!!

wanda f said...

Happy with myself but if I could be someone else for just a little bit then I would be Regin the Radient from the Immortals After Dark Series that would be really fun.

Abraham said...

Donald Trump -- I'd spread his money everywhere. "You get a thousand dollars, and YOU get a thousand dollars!! Everybody gets ONE THOUSAND DOLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAHS!!" --oh, wait...that's Oprah.

Anonymous said...

I would be all the happy heroines in Nora Robert's romance novels.

horsegirl275 said...

I would want to be someone from a book, but I would want to "become them." Just for a while. Maybe a couple different girl...Good grief, I would love to kiss Henry....that would be amazing...or become a kickass fighter or star or something....that would be so cool...

Angie said...

Hm... It would be kind of funny to take over Paris Hilton's life. Maybe I could make her fame actually worth something. JK

1110cg said...

I honestly have no idea...

T. J. K. said...

I think I would want to be Clary Fray from the Mortal Instruments

Bookismylovin said...

If it works on animals.. I'd be a cat. Cats are just fabulous.

Paige.D said...

That's hard to choose. I guess I would want to be someone inspirational. Maybe some sort of writer. Probably Nelson Mandela, he survived years and years of imprisonment and seemed to have so much hope. He's truly an inspiration to me.

Krystal Maestas said...

Certainly not anyone famous because ahve you seen their lives? Always up for scrutiny with the media and millions of people they don't know. No thank you.

I think I would like to be...if it were at all possible...a cat. Because cats are awesome.

But if it had to be a human, then I would be Jennifer Lawerence's best friend because she is so sweet and great and perfect and I would love to have a movie night with her.

jessica said...

I think I would just be me :)

Denise Z said...

I would add a caveat that it be for only one day, so I could walk a bit in someone's shoes and see what goes on behind the scenes of The Walking Dead LOL otherwise, I have gotten pretty use to my own skin - like it or not it fits me ;)

Kayla DeGroote said...

Very tough question!! It would take some serious thinking on this one! ;)

dandelionnwine said...

I honestly don't know that I'd want to. It's taken me a long time to be mostly okay in my own skin that I really try not to think about being anyone but myself.

Brittany Dodson said...

I would rather be a "best friend" to all my favorite main characters in all my favorite books. To name some of them are: Harry Potter, City of Bones, The Goddess Test, Divergent, The Hunger Games, Hush Hush, Water Song, Trylle, The Selection, Need, Matched, Iron King, Fallen and Twilight. Just to name a "few" of my favorite YA series. I think it would be fun to be spend time with these characters then actually be them because I would rather get to know them more inside the book then just through the words of the book.

Melaney R said...

beyonce! or michelle obama

Jessica said...

Cammie Morgan from the Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter... I'd love to live the spy life (and I know, character in a book, but there has to be a real life-ish Cammie out there somewhere).

If not Cammie, then Kate from The Goddess Test because I love the greek myths and would love to get into that world for a little while. :)

Thanks for the wonderful giveaway, I can't wait to read the latest wonderful creation of yours :)

Denisa said...

I wouldn't really want to be anyone from this world but if we're talking books i have a long list of people i would rather be.

Angel Reader said...

Ohh This is a hard question. hmm i wouldn't like to be anyone else but if i had to chose, some person that gets to travel the world all the time and met all famous people;

Janita said...

I really don't know. I like who I am, or wait, maybe one of the compannions of the Doctor:)

Anonymous said...

I'd like to mask myself as a famous musician. Not sure who but I'd want to experience the life I could have one day. it'd have to be someone I could possibly be like and in a band with the music I'm into. Just to test out this life and see what kind of future I'd want I'd use my choice wisely (and also meet famous stars). -Sudha

Allie L said...

jennifer lawrence because she is awesome :D

TehTeh said...

first person that comes to mind? Taylor Swift, but I'm not sure if I'd actually like to live her life... just someone really poised, talented and successful in general I think

Melissa Johnson said...

I don't think that I would want to be masked, because even though someone's life may seem perfect on the outside, it probably isn't as nice as you think.

Jen S said...

That's tough because nobody has a perfect life. So there is no way to know you aren't going into something worse than you thought.

Book Loving Hippo said...

Wow, what a tough question! I would probably want to take over the life of someone who has a really interesting job (right now I can't think of anyone specific). I'm sure it would be fun for a little while, but I like my life and don't really want to take over someone elses

Samantha Geary Jones said...

J.K. Rowling! So I could spend the day on her Hogwarts-inspired playground and have unlimited access to Univeral Studios' Wizarding World of Harry Potter! PAWN's cover is so intriguingly eye-catching, it would make a gorgeous poster!
WriterlySam

Aimee Nelson said...

The first thing that comes to mind is becoming someone who in a billionaire, not for my personal self but for others. I could make such a difference with the money. Our homeless shelter here is falling apart, I serve these people every month so I know what they are living in, its filth! Our children need places to play, I would love to put a playground in town for all the kids and something for the older kids too, there is nothing for them to do then we wonder why they are always in trouble! I would love to build an orphanage founded on Jesus right now they are funded by the state so you cant even talk about Jesus! I would love to build a place where these kids can learn about him and how he can make a difference in there lives! Thanks!

Iris said...

Whew... Well, I'd rather just be me. The whole masking business, its interesting, but scares me!
Yup, well at least its out in the open now ;)

Anonymous said...

Good question. It'd be interesting to take over the life of someone with a lot of power, like the Queen, or a CEO, maybe even a well known celebrity, just to know what they would think on a daily basis and to see all of the good and bad things about their lives.

Rachel Spring said...

Wow, I really don't know! Would it be permanent? If so, I think I would want to stay me, I could never leave my daughter. If only temporary, then Suzanne Collins, because I want to know firsthand how her brain works.

tore923@aol.com said...

That's a difficult question. I don't think I would want to be anybody else but myself. Thanks for the giveaway.

Shay Boisvert said...

Hard question.... ummm I believe I would become the girl from reign because I would get to be on a historical era show and be among great dresses, people and mysteries

Sandy said...

Difficult question. Maybe jimmy Fallon-he seems to really enjoy what he does...we need the laughter and humor in our lives.

Marianne said...

I would switch places with my mom so she could live one day without being in pain. So she can do all the things she wants to do; ride horses again, ride a roller coaster, etc...

Odalis Rojas said...

Wow this is hard! I think of alot if people that I wish I could have their life but I dont want to be them. But i guess it would be Jennifer Lawrance.

Serenity Sheild said...

Tough! Don't really have a person. Maybe be one of my favorite actress. If we talk books...there are a million people. Right now I'd be Kate from If I Die by Amy Plum

hollyday821 said...

I'd love to be a princess for a day, so Kate Middleton <3

Anonymous said...

I would be Cinderella, Best love story EVER!!!!!!!

Girl who writes stories and reads books said...

I would want to be Clary from CoB, cause then I'd get Jace!

8araSEMarsh26 said...

I think I would want to be one of my idols, such as Selena Gomez and Christina Aguilera, even if it were just a little while. It would be an amazing experience to step into their shoes!

Alexa Abee said...

I guess it would depend on who I could choose. If fictional character count, I think I would want to be Hermione - her brains, and her friends would be awesome to have. She's fearless, and she doesn't let someone else tell her how she should act. She's totally loyal to her friends and will stand up for them. If I had to choose a real person, it would be Jennifer Lawrence - her self confidence and pride in who she is inspiring. She doesn't let society dictate who she is. She seems very down to earth and sure of herself, and in a society that thinks that there is really only one way to look, she is great. She says whats on her mind, and acts like a human being.

Caitlyn said...

Hmm...I would want to be Hermione. Who wouldn't want to be Herimone? :)

ashleysgotbookcitement said...

I think I would want to take over the life of a movie stars kid. That way I wouldn't be expected to really do anything and I could use my parents excessive wealth to buy as many books as I could want. The only problem is I would be trading a parents love for money. Hmm... maybe this isn't a good choice at all. I really don't know who's life I would want to take over.

Andrea C. said...

Hum, I have the slightest idea. Maybe Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. But only for like a week or so. By the end of it, she can have her life back and I'll go to mine :)

Samantha R said...

If I could take over the life of anyone in the world it would probably be an author like you, or Richelle Mead, or Julie Kagawa etc.

Rebecca L Sutton said...

J.K. Rowling. For the obvious writing and HP related reasons, but also all the amazing charity work and fan connections she's made because of her success.

Kristen Shuck said...

I'm not too sure who I would want to be. I'm pretty content with my life at the moment and if I had someone else's life it may seem great on the outside but once I'm that person, it could be just horrible. So I think I'd rather stick with being myself... haha Sorry for the non-answer. :P

Rachael M said...

I think i'd rather be someone from a book/comic book! If not i'd choose Amber Heard or JLaw!

Jane Speare said...

I'd like to be some scientist who works in the Antarctic region...because otherwise it's sort of hard to get there, and I'd like to get a glimpse of the vast country.

Jenna :) said...

Hmm... Tough question... I'm pretty happy with who I am, though!

Anonymous said...

I kinda like the way I am so that's a very tough question 😱

Carrie said...

It might be fun to be Masked for like a day or a week, but to give over my entire life? It's tempting and yet it isn't!

But assuming I'd have to I'll say Katherine Pierce from TVD. She's fun XD

Betsy Powell said...

I'd probably be Georgina Hogarth--but only for a few days. It'd be awesome to meet and advise Charles Dickens.

Sarah said...

I keep thinking of people - real or imaginary - and they've pretty much all experienced something horrible that I'm not sure I could deal with. SO. My teenage self. 17 or so? I have some theories I'd like to try out in my past.

Sarah Kellar said...

If I could be masked I would become J.K. Rowling so that I could write another book to the Harry Potter series. *Evil Smile*

Brooke Scull said...

I would love to be Kate from the Goddess Test series. I love Greek Gods so it would be perfect for me!

Kaitlyn Pritchett said...

Probably a world famous chef, if were talking actual living people, so i could write down their recipes and copy all their secret cookbooks!

goldielaux said...

I wish I could be masked as my teenage self. Knowing what I know now will make being a teenager so much more fun! ;)

Anonymous said...

I would be a teenager, and do a few things differently...

Lielan reads said...

Ohhh, I would like to be Kate from Goddess Test. I love love love Henry! ♥

Anna said...

Uhh...well, I WISH I could be someone like Hermione, but god knows that wouldn't actually work. I'm pretty sure no matter who I pretended to be I would be outed pretty damn quickly!

~Grace Raford/Anna Pett

Stephanie Moore said...

Jennifer Lawrence she's just so real and doesn't hold anything back lol

Adelynne Chang said...

No one. It'd be really scary to try and be someone else, I don't think I could do it!

Kat N said...

MMM I would choose an author! But which one MMM which one? Andrea cremer

Carrie Hubeny said...

I would like to be a superhero.

Bube said...

I don't know,at this moment my brain is totally blocked :D
I would say,it would be weird to be someone else :D

Lasha said...

If I could be Masked and take over the life of anyone in the world, I would choose Lauren Graham, from Gilmore Girls. She is so down to earth and funny, and embraces life. She inspires me. Gilmore Girls was one of my favorite shows!

Thank you for this amazing giveaway, its truly wonderful!

Julianne Faith said...

I'm not interested on being anyone other than myself. But if I had to choose. I guess it would be my mom. There would be many people in the world that I could have chosen to be. But think living a life, in my Mom's eye would bring me values and endearing traits to learn.

WulfLuva said...

Someone with a library of books! ;)

**Rachelle**

Mary Shoemaker said...

I would be an author. I would like to know what it feels like to be a best selling author.

Sarah M. said...

If you could be Masked and take over the life of anyone in the world, who would you choose?

I think I'd be me at a younger age! :D Before I lost my innocence!

Kayano said...

I would be a famous writer and many people could enjoy reading my histories. It would be fantastic.

Thanks for this fantastic giveaway!

Fiction_TheNewReality (Jayne) said...

I would be a publicist at Harlequin Teen so I can bring home all the pretty arcs and read them hehe

neednewspace said...

I'd like to be a Royal from Tudor England. I love that time period!

Kala Brubaker said...

so excited for this book, I can't wait to get it signed in Louisville!

Rachel said...

If I could take over the life of anyone? Hmmm, can I say no one? Because I honestly don't know and I don't think I ever could do that! But interesting question! I quite liked PAWN, and thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Donna said...

A day in the life of Stephanie Plum would be exciting. Especially if it included dinner with Grandma Mazur -so many laughs!

Reid Storey said...

Oh man!! That is an awesome question!!! I don't think I ever could be anyone else. I think I'd go crazy.

SweetDee85 said...

I want to be all the girls that all my book boyfriends date lol

Skye said...

I don't have anyone specific in mind, but someone who owns a small independent bookstore in a state that has lots of greenery and rain would be my ideal. *sighs*

Thanks for the giveaway! :)

MG said...

Probably Jennifer Lawrence: She's my idol and I adore acting, so it would be amazing to walk in her shoes, especially with the final Hunger Games movie coming up!

S. Huston said...

I would want to be either Emma Stone or Jennifer Lawrence, they are amazing!

Jennifer Lawrence's BFF, because really... Who doesn't want JLaw as a friend? ;)
