LIPSTICK LAWS Giveaways, Video Review and Interviews Galore

There is less than a week left in my countdown for the official release date of THE LIPSTICK LAWS (April 4). Therefore, I'm throwing books at people. That's right; I'm throwing books all over the place and am going a little crazy like this kid:

Now that that confession is out of the way, I'm hoping to throw some books YOUR way... via several LIPSTICK LAWS giveaways going on right now. First, the fantabulously funny Carrie Harris is featuring THE LIPSTICK LAWS for the Bookanistas on her blog today. Comment on her post HERE to be entered to win a signed copy of my book. That's not the only reason you'll want to visit her blog post... you'll also want to find out the reason behind this stuffery:

I also have several giveaways going on in conjunction with my Teen Book Scene Blog Tour (happening now through April 16). At the end of each week of the tour, I will be giving away a signed copy of my book (three copies total). The winner(s) will be randomly selected from the comments on the posts each week. That means all you have to do to enter to win is comment on at least one of the tour stops. To increase your odds of winning, comment on several (or all) posts. More details (and links) are HERE.

In other fun news, I was so excited to see the first video review of THE LIPSTICK LAWS! I want to send huge THANK YOUS to Cari Soto of Cariblogs for the video review below & Tami Snow for featuring the review on her fabulous website, Lyrical Lip Service! You both are awesome!

Finally, I have some recent interview links to share as well. Check them out if you want to learn more about me, my book and/or the book's it-girl villain (Britney):

Lipstick Lowdown #5

Happy Friday! Today is March 4th!!! That means it's exactly ONE month before my book launches in April! I'm super excited and want to celebrate by posting my last Lipstick Lowdown countdown post. Lipstick Lowdown has been a recurring post on the 4th of every month to help me count down to my book's release date, and to celebrate all things lipstick. This month, I'm going to share the secrets of what your lipstick says about you...check out this awesome lipstick personality theory below, created by Cynthia Christ (article by Linda Gillan Griffin), and let me know if you think it's accurate.

So, I'm curious... which lipstick picture looks closest to your own lipstick? Does the corresponding personality description accurately describe you?

Thanks so much for checking out my last Lipstick Lowdown post! Next month at this time, The Lipstick Laws will be out, I'll be participating in an online book tour through The Teen Book Scene... and I'll be holding lots of giveaways! Stay tuned!
