Where in the World is Beth Revis!?



Well everyone, we are 97 days out from the release of Shades of Earth and 42 days out from the release of A Million Suns in paperback.  Beth is heading out over the next two months to a number of signings and events!

She will be at Books of Wonder tomorrow night at 6 PM for the launch of the anthology AFTER, which she has a short story in.  You can find out more on the Books of Wonder website.

This weekend, the 12th through the 14th, she'll be at New York Comic Con (I am so jealous!) for panels and signing Shades of Earth ARCs.

Now, recently, my family began discussing Family Vacations.  When my kids, ages 5 to 8, were asked if they would rather take a trip somewhere for the week in the summer or go to New York Comic Con in October- they unanimously chose Comic Con.  They already know what characters they want to cosplay there.  We've decided that 5 is too young so we're planning to start the yearly tradition when the twins (who are 5) turn 8.  So, we have 3 years for them to really get used to coplaying and to decide what brand of nerd they each are.  In honor of the amazing Beth Revis going to Comic Con this year, we're doing a little give away.  From today until the end of the month, you can enter to win a pre-order of Shades of Earth.  The giveaway is open to everyone that the Book Depository can ship to.  Now, to make it more fun, there are two questions that you MUST ANSWER IN A COMMENT to enter.

1-  What is your favorite superhero/sidekick and why?

2-  If you were to attend Comic Con, what character would you cosplay as?

Cosplay is dressing in a usually homemade costume and in that costume you try your best to accurately portray that character.  Many people cosplay as characters from comics, movies, books, cartoons, manga, anime and TV shows.  You can click here to see some great examples.

Now, I will be giving extra entries to anyone whose favorite hero/sidekick is on my favorites list.  But no fair trying to guess!  Just answer for yourself and hope that we both have good taste.  You should be sure to leave a way to contact you in your comment such as: an email address in this format- blahblah at email dot com or a Twitter username.

Winner must be at least 13 years of age or have their parents' permission to enter and must be able to receive a package from the book depository.  Entries will be open until October 31 at midnight.  We plan on doing a Read Along for A Million Suns in the next few months as we prepare for the release of Shades of Earth.  I hope you'll join us for that too.

My favorite super hero is IRON MAN. He has it all: charm, wit & a to-die-for costume.

I'd love to attend as Freya the Norse Goddess of Love, Beauty and Destiny.

1- What is your favorite superhero/sidekick and why?
My favorite super hero is definitely Spiderman. Spiderman is a hero who stands for the people and only the people. He defends the world from all evil even though he is often portrayed as the villain. Spiderman is often unappreciated by people in comics and movies because the media turned him into the monster. Spiderman shows how the righteous don't need any reward for doing good. They are righteous because it is the moral thing.


2- If you were to attend Comic Con, what character would you cosplay as?
Either Kick Ass or Scott Pilgrim!

1. My favorite superhero would be BATMAN. First because he's a philanthropist. His wealth is either spent for his crime fighting crusade and really cool gadgets or given to Wayne Foundation. He has no supernatural abilities but his intelligence and physical skills make up for it. Batman also has the coolest costume and villains I love to hate.

2. I would dress up as Yuna or Tiffany from Final Fantasy

My favorite superhero is Batman, because he is no mutant or alien. He is just a human, even if he has more training and money for gadgets than ordinary people, and no superpowers doesn't stop him trying to do his best to fight crime.

If I were to attend comic con, I'd love to dress up as an elf, maybe Arwen, because I have similar long, dark hair, and I loved Liv Tyler as Arwen. I've always wanted to know how I'd look with pointy ears:) Or I'd like to be a member of the Enterprise crew in one of those short dresses, science dept. blue of course!
