November's Top Commenter Giveaway and NaNoWriMo!

If you were around here last year (bless you) you might remember how I participated in NaNoWriMo. Of course I'm doing it again this year! This time around, I'm writing....wait for it....A YOUNG ADULT CONTEMPORARY  NOVEL!!

Now you might be thinking, okay what's the big deal, Amber? After all you DO run a young adult book blog!  But you see it is a big deal because I haven't written a young adult story in over five years. It kind of scares me honestly, but I'm having a lot of fun with it. I would love to give you some short synopsis, but the last person I tried to explain it to turned into about three paragraphs. Just know that my plan is to mix a bit of friendship, love, drama, tears, laughs, and darker parts all into one story. But I can show you this awesome banner that Kim from And Anything Bookish made for me:

So since I'm tackling this crazy idea of writing a novel in a month, my blog is probably going to suffer. I still wanted to have a giveaway in November for the posts that do come up so this is what you can win:

1 Winner will get 2 Contemporary Young Adult Books of THEIR CHOICE!

- Anyone can enter as long as the Book Depository ships to your country. Don't yell at me if they don't. Go yell at them.
- You have to be over 13 years of age.
- All rules of how the monthly commenter giveaway runs can be found here. (Please read them!)

Extra entries:

I decided that I probably won't be spamming JYTBB with NaNo updates because I'll be doing that on my other blog. So I thought why not add that in for some extra points?

+5 points if you go follow my other blog
+7 points if you were already a follower of it before this post
- Leave a comment on this post and tell me which one you are so I can count it!

AND if you leave a comment on any posts I do in November on that blog you get 1 point for each one just like on here! So yeah, tons of ways to rack up commenter entries. 

Are you doing NaNoWriMo? If so, feel free to hit me up on twitter @JYTBB for any rants, word count races, etc!

I'd love to do a word race with you! I only started yesterday, since I had my last exam and now I'm free. :) I'm only around 1,400 words. :/ I think I could do with some pick-me-up. My username is cass_wordsonpaper; I'll search for you.
