YA Crush Tourney: Update

Hello lovelies!

The time for the YA Crush Tourney is fast approaching, which means it's almost time to vote! 

In case you missed it, I'm going to be a part of the YA Crush Tourney; I will be advocating for Sam Roth (sigh) from Shiver, Linger, and Forever by Maggie Stiefvater! (For more detailed information on this, view my blog post about it here.) 

First in updates: BUTTONS!

Avery from Avery's Book Nook was totally awesome and made THREE buttons for me! Aren't they cool? (And doesn't Sam look crush-worthy?)

And then I tried to make one myself, which turned out...okay. But hey--effort counts.

YA Sisterhood
Please feel free to grab a button, or two, or three, or four, and post it everywhere. (Look to the right of this post.) People need to know that Sam is up for the YA Crush Tourney!

Next up: The Tournament!

The whole thing begins on July 6. Sam's first match, however, doesn't happen until July 9.

Directly from the YA Sisterhood is the schedule itself:

Last, but not least: Spread the word!

There are multiple ways to do this. One is to post a button on your blog, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, etc. (or make it your profile picture).

What is probably the BIGGEST way to spread the word is to post about it! Tell everyone: Twitter, Facebook, your mother, your grandmother, the pool boy--EVERYONE!

Ah, but what should you post? Here's some help:

Hashtags to use on Twitter:
#SamsPack #TeamSam #YACrushTourney

AND I put together a little something you can copy and paste into a tweet:
It's a SHIVER that will LINGER with you FOREVER. Vote for Sam! #TeamSam #SamsPack #YACrushTourney http://www.ya-sisterhood.blogspot.com beautyandthebookshelf.blogspot.com

For now, that's all! In the meantime, tell EVERYBODY about the YA Crush Tourney and that they should vote for Sam. (But only if they want to; we don't want people to do something they don't want to.) So tweet, tweet, tweet; post, post, post; and button, button, button! 

Until next time:
