Book a day giveaway

Greetings Young Adult Book lovers!  (Can I call you YABL for short?  It sort of sounds like babble and rabble so it's definitely a teen descriptive word.)

I signed up for Kathy's blog hop to meet more YABL as I am a YABL myself.  In fact, I've written 19 books and most of them are YAB. (I'm refraining from making a yabba dabba doo joke here, because contrary to popular belief, I do have a modicum of pride.) Instead, I'll say that most of my books are romantic comedies, although the CJ Hill ones have more action in them.  Guns, bad guys, maybe a time machine or a dragon or two--but always a hot guy. I have my standards.

So anyway I'll be giving away a hardback copy of My Double Life here--but wait, there's more.  Since I have a new book coming out August 28--Erasing Time, under my pen name CJ Hill,  I'm about to embark on my usual pre-launch book-a-day giveaway on both of my blogs. (I also have one at http://www.cjhillbooks.blogspot.com)

That giveaway officially starts Aug 10th, so come back to both blogs--your chances of winning are good. That said, I'll only ship to the US or Canada. People outside can enter and if they win I'll send them a choice of my ebooks Blue Eyes and Other Teenage Hazards or Playing the Field


For a chance to win My Double Life, leave a comment telling me what you wish your double life was.

Following the blog earns you an extra shot at winning.

Good luck fellow YABL!

If I had a double life, I would be a famous rockstar - not only in my own country but also around the world. And the I would spend peaceful time home with my friends and family and maybe write poems and books :)

YABL is cute, that should be okay. Hmmm... a double life...well, I wanted to be a tough-ass spy while living as a preschool teacher. Not so awesome, eh?! :D

Jeanna Stay said...

My double life would be... Can it be something really, really exciting like getting paid to sit around all day long and read YABs, eat pizza, and generally be a sloth? Because if so, that would definitely be it.

Oh, and I already follow your blog because you're just so shiny.

gaylene said...

I definitely follow the blog. And I agree with Heecaroo, I'd love to be a famous back-up singer in a folk band somewhere else, so I could have privacy here, too :)

Danielle said...

If I had a double life, it would have to be as an FBI agent that traveled constantly and carried a gun. I would also be in shape, since I wouldn't have any kids. I'm jealous of my double me.

Tiana Smith said...

I'm a follower :) And if I had a double life ... I'd want to be in the circus! Is that weird? I've always wished I was that talented as the Cirque de Soleil people (also, I have no idea how to spell that ...)

Kathryn Packer Roberts said...

Being a Mom, my double life would be as some crazy mad scientist with a secret lab under my house. Or maybe that is just a retreat for when I need to escape =).

Can't wait to read and review these books...whether I win or not, these are a must have for my shelves!

I wish that my double life was that I was a famous actress/singer or a spy. Then I could come home and have a normal life in my hometown and write about my adventures.
How do I follow your blog? I'm following it via Google Reader. Does that count?

Alyssa Jensen said...

If I had a double life, I would be a private consultant for the government to help track down criminals...the go-to girl when everything seems hopeless. I would secretly be the genius behind the world and have the power to start wars and end empires while living in my comfortable abode posing as a nanny! Now all I need are the brains to do it!

Gayle said...

If I had a double life, I'd probably choose a famous chef so I wouldn't always struggle with what to fix for dinner. :)

Sierra said...

One side: my real life.
The other side: a famous, secluded fashion designer :P
And as a plus I would be rich enough to have my own library room (that way I can organize by color, author, genre or likability :P).
I follow your lovely blog (here) I'll go check out your other one now. Sierra
Keep Growing Beautiful!

Bailey the Awesome one said...

I wish my double life was to be a secret agent! That would be so sweet! :D

Skye said...

If I had a double life, I would be a police detective - solving crimes and sending bad guys to jail.
I'm a follower - thank you for the contest! :)

Anna Maria Junus said...

Actor. Definitely a successful actor - who can sing. Or a successful writer instead of a poor struggling one.

Leigh Seeley said...

I would want my double life to be a rich multimillionaire. Pools, parties, and all the fun stuff that happens to them. No paparazzi though... :) I LOVE these books!

Leigh Seeley said...

P.S I am a follower!

Alicia said...

I love following your blog! My goal today is to slip the word YABL into regular conversation.

In my double life I'd want to be a love doctor on one of those call in radio shows.

Thanks for writing such a great books!

Hannah said...

I'm already planing on being a famous author so that doesn't need to be my double. But I'd LOVE my double life to be on Broadway, or Movies or something Musical related! Everyones dream right?

Zoe Leonarczyk said...

hmmm, I'd like to be a famous (glamorous) author as well as my nerdy self :3

Dena McMurdie said...

Hmmm... singer, but without the fame. I don't want stalkers. I'm already a follower :)

Stevens Family said...

I'd want to be a well paid artist... I'm already a follower! :)

Mrs. Dork said...

In my double life I'd be a famous actress. That way I can avoid the paparazzi when I need a break!

I'm a follower!

whitney said...

If I have a double life, I would be a triple threat--Singer, Dancer, and Actress. Mostly I just want someone to pick out my clothes and do my hair and make up for me.

I'm a follower!

e. said...

I wish that I was a writer in my other life, especially if I sold a lot of books!

Allerednic said...

If I could have a "double life". . .I'd like to be a character in a Jane Austen book. It's completely unrealistic. . .but, that's what makes it appealing :)

Beedubbs said...

My double life would be that I would be a mermaid or a superhero spinoff of Superman!

And I follow both your blogs, of course.

Pam Goones said...

My double life would be that I was a princess in a castle and everyone did what I said. But the castle is modern day, so I'll still have the works.

I follow your blog. Your books are perfect for a YABL like me. Some of my favorites!

Oh, and I have a question. Does it matter if more than one family member from the same household enters all these contests to win? I have four other sisters that follow your blog and love your books, and they would like a chance to win one too.

Briana said...

My double life would be to work in a secret organization in space. Like an intergalactic secret agent!

I follow your blog!
Thanks!

Good luck!

ooo, ive nvr really thought about wat i would want my doule life 2 be. but i guess i wuld say a basketball player in the wnba. yup, thats wat it'll b. n wen i wasnt playin with my team, i would spend time in my "normal" house in a town that watch or know anything about basketball. it would be really nice.

Valerie Cullison said...

I could definitely read books for a living! Yes! I am your newest follower!

Melissa said...

In my double life, I'm a librarian in a post-apocalyptic world where books are the last hope for peace. And I follow your blog. The two are unrelated.

jthy said...

If the comment was suppose to be left here instead of goodreads.com.

For my double life I am hopelessly confuse till I realized that i already have a double life but the fake mask I always wear turned in to the real(most seen)me while the real me can't come out so I would want to be a more beautiful and confident me able to express myself.

But if you need a particular answer a rich girl that cared truly and not just for publicity or maybe an actress to get through hidden emotions in a sensible way that people can later enjoy when they watch it,but not be demanding and rude who can always put on a fake smile to entertain instead be me inside and out.So my double life leans toward expressing how I am and also in my double life i will make me and everyone else happy if both groups weren't than it would be no different than being me in one sense of the way. Even if I don't win if people read this and understand any thing like this about themselves I am happy.

Shelver506 said...

Does it have to be semi-realistic? Because I'd really, really like to be the Doctor's new companion.

nrlymrtl said...

Whatever my double life is, I know there is a cape and tights involved.

Kelly Marie said...

Hmm. One life would be the wonderful one I have now...the other would be something involving a job where I get to travel all over the world. Maybe a photographer? I think that would be amazing for sure!

Lisa Anne said...

I think I wold want my double life to be someone who is rich, who has money, and who's opinion matters in what is going on in the world, the complete opposite of who I am. But only for a short time because I would miss me. And I think that much responsibility would get old really fast.

Emily said...

I kinda wish that my double life would be the opposite of what I am now. I wanna have some more money because we're in a kinda rough state right now and I wish that we could have a really nice little house with a white picket gate in a nice little neighborhood.(: Followed via GFC too!

Kassiah said...

If I had a double life, I would love to be an evil genius. I guess!

I'd be a ninja. Maybe I'd pick up some coordination.

Hunter said...

I would definatly be a artist or an author as my double life alter ego. In my current one I lack the creative ability so experiencing it in alter ego style would be nice.

B said...

My double life would be... I don't know. Life as a mom is pretty darn amazing. Don't know that I would change it. Though, being a philanthropist would be awesome. I'd just need someone to fund it ;)

Maggie Richardson said...

Double life as a travel writer or photographer would be pretty great.

Anonymous said...

I'd be a famous photographer.

My double life would be to own a ginormous book store where I could sit and read all day in a comfy chair and there would be a Starbucks in it so I could have coffee and danish all day along with my books.

If I had to have a double life...I would break out of my shell and do everything I'm too shy to do. A fake me wouldn't have to deal with the consequences the real me is so terrified of. (:

I'm following you on this account!
Thanks!

LitzaLou said...

I think if I had a double life, I'd be an artist or an author... but kind of anonymously, as it is a double/secret life. Maybe in my double life, I would have more confidence in my abilities to create art and/or write. Great question, Janette!

I do follow your fantastic blog, by the way. Thank you for the giveaway! :)

aLilLacey said...

Hmmm what to be in a double life. A chef? a race car driver? a restaraunt reviewer? So many options!
