A Week of Rapunzel: Feb. 2 ~ Feb. 9, 2014

For the third year in the row, I'm celebrating the launch of Marissa Meyer's new novel with a fairy tale themed week!

I had so much fun putting together A Week of Cinder(ella) to promote Marissa Meyer's debut novel CINDER and A Week of Little Red for her sophomore hit SCARLET (One of my Best of 2013!)

I'm so excited to announce that in honor of the upcoming release of CRESS, next week begins A Week of Rapunzel!

If you missed the previous events, you can still check out all the great author interviews, guest posts, book reviews, and other fabulous features!  We had a great turn-out!

A Week of Rapunzel will feature guest posts, author visits, book reviews (because, after all, Marissa isn't the ONLY author with a kick-ass Rapunzel to celebrate...though she is the only one calling her Cress!), giveaways, reviews, and more!  It all begins with a special blog tour stop for CINDER and culminates with a release day celebration!

Are you excited?  I know I am!!  Feel free to email abackwardsstory (at) gmail (dot) com if you'd like to participate and I'll add you into the festivities! :) 
(Last year, I was floored and humbled by everyone eager to participate, and one week became two.  I reserve the right to extend the event this year if the need should again arise because YOU ARE ALL AMAZING!)

I'd love your help spreading the word to all your fairy tale loving followers!

Please tweet this entry, post it on your Facebook account, blog, etc.

[And if you do, you'll get extra giveaway entry points, oooh!]
