By day, I'm a user experience designer; by evenings/weekends, I write novels from my home in Scappoose, Ore. My newest is Awake in the World, published February 2019 by Roaring Brook Press; my previous novel, Eleanor, was published by Crown in 2016 and has since been translated into German, Portuguese, and Turkish. I’m currently working on a new project.

Update, 3/16: Thanks to everyone who entered this giveaway! The winner has claimed the prize, and is announced at the bottom of the page. Meanwhile, keep following me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or right here on the blog for future giveaways!

Time for a really special, really unique giveaway! This time around, the prize is something that just doesn't exist anywhere else—a one-of-a-kind, custom-illustrated, signed copy of Eleanor. The contest begins Wednesday, March 9, at 12:00am Eastern. If you're visiting before that date, be sure to come back and enter. (I'll try to remind you.)

Here's the prize:

Some details about the book: 1) This is a U.S. first hardcover edition of Eleanor, written by me and published by Crown Publishing in January, 2016; 2) The illustration is located on the front cover board, underneath the dust jacket; the medium is pen and watercolor markers, and depicts Huffnagle Island, a key location from the book; 3) The illustration is dated March 2016 and signed by me, and titled 'huffnagle'; 4) The book is signed on the main title page; the winner of the giveaway may request personalization of this page (e.g. I'll inscribe it to the winner or whomever they specify).

The contest begins on Wednesday, March 9, at 12:00am (Eastern), and will end Wednesday, March 16, at 12:00am (also Eastern). I'm using Rafflecopter to run this giveaway. I've never used them before, so let's see how this works. There are multiple ways to enter the giveaway, so you have a few ways to increase your chance of winning.
