PROJECT TELL TAYLOR



* * * *
WHAT IS "PROJECT TELL TAYLOR?"

As a lot of you know by now, my debut novel Remembrance was inspired by Taylor Swift's "Love Story" music video. I talked all about it in a blog entry a few months ago, discussing how Remembrance was inspired by Taylor Swift's "Love Story" music video. I even wrote a letter to Taylor Swift and sent it to her, along with a signed book!

It's been a few months now, and I have yet to hear back from Taylor that she received the letter and book. I don't even know if she ever saw it (I kind of doubt she did). 

I really want to tell Taylor about how inspiring she and her music have been to me, but since Taylor Swift is an international superstar, she’s a little hard to reach. This is where YOUR help comes into play! I am giving away the biggest prize pack I've offered yet, and the ways to enter to win are by telling Taylor Swift about Remembrance

The Goal: Get Taylor Swift to Tweet about Remembrance!

Here is the MASSIVE PRIZE PACK I'm offering for the Project Tell Taylor Giveaway!


~ A signed copy of Remembrance
~ A signed copy of Vengeance
~ A mask that resembles the one on the Remembrance cover
~ Three signed Remembrance bookmarks
~ Two Remembrance sticker
~ Taylor Swift's "Fearless" CD (on it is "Love Story," the song that started it all!)
~ Taylor Swift's debut album ("Our Song" and "Teardrops on my Guitar" were also influential to the creation of Remembrance)
~ Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, since it's referred to many times in Remembrance. (And the new HarperTeen cover is so pretty!)
~ Plus two NEVER BEFORE SEEN prizes that are exclusive to this giveaway!!! These two awesome prizes will be announced on February 1, when the giveaway begins).

Now I *hope* you're wondering, "How can I help?!"

Here's how.

Put this button in your sidebar, and have it link to this blog entry.

But most importantly ...

This will be organized similarly to a blog hop. Sign up on the Linksy to participate in Project Tell Taylor on February 1!!

Here is what you will be expected to have on your blog post:

2) The Rafflecopter entry form and YouTube video I make announcing the Project Tell Taylor Prize Pack (I will email these to you a few days before the post goes live)
3) A few sentences about what inspires you
4) Put the Project Tell Taylor button on your sidebar, linking to your post
5) You can also do an optional giveaway of your own! The only requirement is that it is YA/Taylor Swift related, and one of the entries is to Tweet to Taylor Swift about Remembrance
6) You must either have the Linky list at the bottom of your page or link back to the Project Tell Taylor post of one of the hosts or co-hosts.

If you sign up to help, you can still enter the giveaway :)

Remember, you do not have to have read Remembrance in order to participate! I just appreciate your help in telling Taylor about the book :)

  15. Hey Michelle! I signed up, but I did something wrong and my link isn't working. (I hadn't had my coffee yet!) Is there a way you can delete it and I can re-enter it? It's "Britney" in the linky list. SORRY! I know better than to try to operate without coffee!

  28. I just made a post to help and made a giveaway for a copy of your book also. I have been super busy and just go to do this and was wondering if there was any way I could get on the hop link list? I didn't realize it was closed until I was getting ready to add it. :( either way I'm happy to help, i just figure more tweets if another blog is on the list!

  30. I have not had the chance to read Remebrance yet, and I am not sure I like the idea of reicarnation, but I stil want to help you tells Taylor Swift. I would love to win the books, too, since my library does not have them. I know what it feels like to have someone not respond to your letters, so I will put this on my blog. Your instructions are a little confusing, though, since I have never done something like this before. Could you explain?

    ReplyDelete
  31. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    WHY haven't I found this earlier?? I LOVE TAYLOR SWIFT so much and I'm so curious about your book!
    I hope got a chance to help. :(
    Btw, how did it go?
