Great Big Book Giveaway! Fabulous Fin Fun!

Today: Win an ARC of Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs. Yes! That’s right, I have one Forgive My Fins ARC (advanced reader copy) I won at the RT BOOKlovers Convention in Columbus and I want to pass it on to one of you! Since the actual book (a beautiful hardcover) was recently released, I'd LOVE if this paperback ARC went to someone who is getting the book (or has it) but wants to see the difference between an ARC and a finished copy. The combination of both is an awesome gift for a detail-minded aspiring author (just sayin' ;-). I'd also appreciate it if you mention Tera in a Tweet or a blog soon (every little bit helps).

Here's the blurb about the book:

Lily Sanderson has a secret, and it's not that she has a huge crush on gorgeous swimming god Brody Bennett, who makes her heart beat flipper-fast. Unrequited love is hard enough when you're a normal teenage girl, but when you're half human, half mermaid, like Lily, there's no such thing as a simple crush.

Lily's mermaid identity is a secret that can't get out, since she's not just any mermaid—she's a Thalassinian princess. When Lily found out three years ago that her mother was actually a human, she finally realized why she didn't feel quite at home in Thalassinia, and she's been living on land and going to Seaview High School ever since, hoping to find where she truly belongs. Sure, land has its problems—like her obnoxious biker-boy neighbor, Quince Fletcher—but it has that one major perk: Brody. The problem is, mermaids aren't really the casual dating type—the instant they "bond," it's for life.

When Lily's attempt to win Brody's love leads to a tsunami-sized case of mistaken identity, she is in for a tidal wave of relationship drama, and she finds out, quick as a tailfin flick, that happily ever after never sails quite as smoothly as you planned.

To win the ARC of Forgive My Fins, email me at info (AT) shannondelany [DOT] com with the answers to the following 3 questions. The first one to get the answers correct and in my inbox will be the winner! If I get a winner the first day, I’ll add a new book and contest sooner—if you guys are active—quick at answering and winning—I’ll add more books in until June 22, when 13 to Life officially releases (and my head explodes).

The three questions:

1.) About 13 to Life: What popular Asian format did 13 to Life start out being written as and where was it first posted?
2.) About Forgive My Fins: This is not Tera Lynn Childs' first YA novel. What was?
3.) About Tera Lyn Childs: Tera says she's "neither a military brat nor an oil brat..." What sort of "brat" does she confess to being?

Okay, send me your answers as soon as you can!
