Greetings, folks. As some of you already know, we’re hosting a giveaway to celebrate surpassing 12,000 followers! If you click the link at the top of the tumblr sidebar, it will take you to the entry page.

You can sign in using whatever name you’re comfortable giving; the entry itself will require you to provide your tumblr username for verification purposes.

1. There will be 12 winners total. Each will get to pick ONE of Tammy’s currently-published novels for signature. 

2. You MUST be following her blog in order to participate. After all, this is a thank-you to all of those who pushed us over the 12,000 mark.

3. Each individual is allowed ONE entry per day (up to 20 entries total). If an individual is found to be submitting entries for multiple accounts, they will be disqualified.

4. Entries will be allowed until August 20th. 

5. Contest-only blogs will not be named winners.

On the 21st, we’ll select 12 winners at random, and announce them on Tammy’s tumblr. Books will be sent out by mid-September. In the case of international shipping, they will be sent out in October.

Good luck, and thank you all for being here!

There seems to be some confusion regarding how/where to enter - you do not enter by reblogging/liking this post. There is a link in the sidebar of Tammy’s tumblr. The one at the top, labeled “Giveaways (Updated 8/1)”. On that page, there is a rafflecopter widget, and you must log in and complete the entry process through that widget. Script blockers like ScriptSafe will need to be temporarily disabled in order for you to see the form and enter the contest.

The day-turnover for the contest is 12AM EST. International entries are welcome.

For those accessing this page via the tumblr app, the link to the contest page is http://tamorapierce.tumblr.com/giveaways

Yes, that’s right, Tammy is… well, honored to be the Guest of Honor at the 2016 Worldcon, aka MidAmeriCon II! It will take place in 2016 in Kansas City, MO, from August 17th through the 21st. The details currently available can be seen on the MidAmeriCon website, HERE. Keep an eye on the page for ticketing and hotel information, and be aware, Worldcon is a world event - essentially the SDCC of the scifi and fantasy community. Tickets and hotel space will go quickly! We hope to see you there.

Can’t wait that long, or spend that much? Tammy will also be attending the following this year:

November 7 - 9, Hunt Valley, MD
Faeriecon East - What it says on the tin. Baltimor Hunt Valley Inn, Wyndham Affiliate 
245 Shawan Road. (1-866-764-8359 - attendees can ask for the Faeriecon rate); Tammy will be on panels here along with Bruce Coville.

November 28-30, - Baltimore, MD
Chessiecon - Fantasy Con. Tammy will be Guest of Honor there. While membership is required for access to the con, Tammy typically does one public-access appearance on the last day. Confirmation of her public appearance is pending.

Also in October, Tammy will be in Philadelphia for a one-day event honoring Lloyd Alexander. Further details TBH as they become available!

All the best,

Jae

To be clear: this is not just an issue of police brutality

This is specifically an issue of police brutality against black people

Mike Brown was shot simply for being black. Most of the protesters were black. Most of the journalists who were arrested were also black (or at least nonwhites)

This is pretty much entirely about race and if you ignore that you’re missing the point entirely

An ‘Ether Of Sexism’ Doesn’t Explain Gender Disparities In Science And Tech

Sure, studies have shown that “both male and female professors consistently rated otherwise identical applicants named Jennifer as slightly less competent than those named John”, but that totally isn’t rooted in sexism or anything, right Forbes? Sigh. I really wish Forbes was a satirical magazine, because it sure reads like one.  Not that you can expect much different from something run by a conservative think-tank.
