Best of #NILtribe

It's the very last day of 2013. Whaatttttt? How….? I can't even. Because if today is New Year's Eve, that means 2014 is almost here. Like just a few hours away. Which means . . .


AHHHH! *flails*


I'm so excited for y'all to meet Charley & Thad in a few weeks! Like, beyond stoked excited.:) But I thought I'd close out 2013 with a quick #NILtribe wrap-up. Ready?

Ok, here goes!

The #NILtribe officially launched this month. Check out the tab at the top of the page for more #NILtribe deets or this post at Mac Teen Books:) So far we've got torches, tigers, coconut cups, chanting, island bling, awkward tribal dancing, poufy grass skirts that would never fly on Nil (WAY too hard to run in!:D), and of course, BOOKS.  We've already had one #NILtribe giveaway and more to come!

In the meantime, two other giveaways with a chance to win a copy of NIL are still wide open: one over at Icey Books (it ends tonight at midnight!), and the other over at Badass Bookie. And the second giveaway is INTERNATIONAL (woot!) so go enter! I'll wait. ;) *waits* *shares cupcakes* Oh, you're back! Yay! The clock is ticking…;)

Other #NILtribe scoop:

NIL has a new cover!!!!!! And an epic new tagline: How do you escape from an island that doesn't exist?   I totally, absolutely LOVE the new cover. Check it out on the sidebar and let me know what you think in the comments below.

Sneak peeks! I shared a glimpse of Charley's Day One on Twitter…. and the inspiration behind Black Bay and Nil City. ICYMI, here's one of the sneak peeks:
Charley's Day One on Nil

I also shared a sneak peek into Thad's life before Nil. ICYMI, here you go:

VERY different from Thad's life on Nil… *runs away before I spill ALL THE SEKRITS*;)

I talked NIL inspiration with Jessica at Read My Breath Away and shared how NIL was born. That post (with more pics!) is here.  And right now I'm over at Badass Bookie talking with Lisa and sharing sekrit NIL scoop as part of the 2014 Debutante Event. Click here to find out the original title of NIL and other cool NIL scoop.:) (And see the dress I love…worn by JLaw, of course.:D #sherocks)

Remember to follow the hashtag #NILtribe on Twitter for more NIL scoop and sekrits. I've got more interviews in the works, and more giveaways. Soon I'll announce January's #NILtribe prize pack, which includes a copy of NIL, NIL swag, and loads of other books you want (pinky swear).:)

The #NILtribe party is ON! So glad you're in the tribe! :) A quick shout-out to all the #NILtribe members: THANKS FOR ALL THE NIL LOVE. We're gonna have a blast these next few months!!!!!
