My Weekend Giveaway

Remember when I said there would be prizes? I wasn’t kidding. Former AfterEllen Managing Editor and current kick-ass fiction writer Malinda Lo has another book, the sequel to last year’s “Adaptation,” out this week and you can win a copy of your very own.

Inheritance,” the follow-up to the contemporary science fiction tale, picks up exactly where the story left off and, without getting too into details, Reese will have to decide between David and Amber. Also there’s the little matters of (SPOILERS, SUCH SPOILERS) alien DNA and government conspiracies to deal with, too.

Malinda has graciously agreed to give away a two-pack, “Adaptation” and “Inheritance,” to one lucky winner. If you already have “Adaptation,” give the extra copy to a friend to read. If you haven’t read it yet, well now you don’t have to wait for the sequel. Lucky dog.

Malinda is a smart, compelling writer who knows how to make you want to turn the page. And while her work is classified as young adult, it’s accessible to everyone and always, always brings the gay.

So here are the details. The contest is only open to U.S. residents (I am so sorry, my international friends. You know I love you though, right?) To enter put your name, the state you live in and your email address (spell it out if you worry about spambots) in the comments section. I will pick a winner at random at the end of next week.

Oh, and good luck.

I have loved all of Malinda Lo's books so far and cannot wait to read Inheritance. Adaptation was excellent, but the very open ending has made me anxious to read what happens next.

I've not yet had the opportunity to read these two books, but I remember reading Ash as soon as it came out however long ago and tried to share it with my mother, who quickly lost it (sadly).

I haven't read the first book yet, but based on the After Ellen book club pick of the second book, I need to get right on it! I hope you pick me so I can save some money and not buy them! Thanks to Ms. Lo for giving you these to give away!
