The WILDEFIRE Olympics Day 2: Picture Day

WILDEFIRE officially hits bookstores today! ...Even though it's been in most bookstores for a week and most copies via Amazon and B&N have already been shipped.

Today's mission, if you choose to accept it, is to take a picture of yourself with a copy of WILDEFIRE. OR, if it's on your Nook/Kindle/Kobo/Abacus/Speak & Spell, just take a picture of yourself with the cover up on the screen. For example...

...this is a picture from last Halloween when WILDEFIRE and I went trick-or-treating as a cowboy and a gangster.

Once you've taken a picture of yourself with the book, just tweet it with the #Wildefire hashtag or tag the WILDEFIRE fan page on facebook with it. Then post a comment below with your name, email and city/state letting me know you've completed day 2's task.

At the end of the week I'll be tallying the entries and randomly drawing two grand-prize winners of 16x20 canvas prints of the gorgeous WILDEFIRE cover, but anyone who participates in Picture Day will be entered for a bonus prize:

A pre-order of THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER by my talented Simon & Schuster-in-law, Michelle Hodkin!

Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.

It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.

There is.

She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.

She's wrong.

Doesn't that sound mindblowingly awesome? And how about that cover?? Well for one lucky winner, you'll have a finished copy waiting in your mailbox when it comes out on September 27th. In the meantime, you should follow Michelle on Twitter and check out her blog.

You can participate in Picture Day at any point between now and Sunday, July 31st when I draw the winners. Lastly, I'll be ending each day of the WILDEFIRE Olympics with a video from Karsten's Greatest Hits. Enjoy.


  1. Dear Karsten, do you know that you kinda remind me of Zachary Levi?

    That said.

    Am I the only one who's said that to you?

  2. I used to get "You look like Adam Brody" two or three times when I had longer hair in college.

  3. My dog likes your book, too. Can she enter?

  8. Wow! I didn't realize Wildefire would look soo good in a hat. At least my copy came in the mail today, or I would be super jealous. Can't wait to take my picture with it.

  9. Thanks for this!!

    Hope it's okay that the pictures is kinda cut off (hard to take the pic when you can't see what you're actually taking--I was alone). :(
