The Unwritten Rule Contest Entry

All of you guys probably already know, that Elizabeth Scott (one of my favorite authors) is throwing this humongous contest over at her blog. And hopefully Elizabeth you are currently or are going to be reading this post very soon. I'de first like to say that I adore all of your books and can't get enough of them so I'm suuuper excited for The Unwritten Rule. And I noted that you wanted us (as in the contestants of your giveaway) to get the word out or people excited for your upcoming book not just on the internet but out in the real world; which is what I did.

But in order to do that, my two best friends and I threw a The Unwritten Rule party to get us excited for the release. Here are some amazing pictures from the help of my sister, (thanks Taylor!).

First of all, we had a cake that I personally               These are my two best friends and me,
made. There's a picture of The Unwritten Rule         I'm on the way left. We're all having a
right in the middle.                                                   great time!

These are the shirts I made, they all have a     And on the back: yes those are character
picture of the unwritten rule on them and say:    names from your books. Mine (way left)
The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott             says Team Will because he's my favorite
Out March 16th!!! I'm on the way left,            character in your books. My friend's (center)
once again.                                                     says Team Evan and my other friend's (right)
                                                                      says Team Finn-which were their favorite
                                                                      characters.
                      
This is just us having fun. I'm on the left again
and my eyes are all red (like every other picture, lol)      This is a closeup of my back and my
                                                                                 favorite book of yours. Team Will!                  
                  
Us, jumping!!!                                                       The big sign I made
            
Us by the balloons and with our shirts!                   The cake (I'm on the right this time)
                
My friend is lighing the candles and if you count                        A closer picture of the candles
there are a total of seventeen candles. Seventeen is                being lit!
the number of days left until the Unwritten Rule comes
out!!!

                           
We all blew out the candles at the same time.          The eating of the cake, it tasted really good!
                     
The inside of the cake had pink funfetti
(I thought it fit well with it being a romance     The party was so much fun and got me and
novel and all).                                        my friends pumped up for the release date of
                                                                       The Unwritten Rule!!

And to get the word out about The Unwritten Rule, and get other people pumped up for it, I went shopping at the mall (with tons of teenagers) with my shirt on.

Here's me at a shoe store.                  And then I went into Borders and here's a picture of me by
                                                        your book section (sorry the lighting was horrible there)
     
And a closer up one    

And then me and my friend went to school with our shirts on. And just for statistics, our school holds about two thousand teenagers and there were people asking me all day what my shirt was about and of course I happily explained to them that your book will be coming out.

Here's us on the bus with our shirts on (I'm on the right               And then heres another one
but it was super hard to get a good picture)
                               
And then in class                                    Here's a close up of the shirts becuase you can't really
                                                                 get a good look of them in all the other pictures
                           

I hope you enjoyed looking at all these pictures, I had a blast with it and am so excited for the release of The Unwritten Rule.
