And to go with this blog tour, I’m holding one last big international giveaway for the fall! My third and final Kindle Paperwhite with custom case (and Earth & Sky ebook) is up for grabs, along with nine paperback copies of the novel. You can find the Rafflecopter entry form at each stop. And note that you can enter by commenting once per day, which means you can get extra entries if you follow the tour and comment all the stops.
I’ve been sitting on this news for a while and am excited to be able to share it! I’m going on tour around southern Ontario with three awesome YA science fiction authors: R.J. Anderson, Maureen McGowan, and Eve Silver. At each stop we’ll be holding a discussion about our stories and YA science fiction, answering reader questions, signing our books, and giving out swag.
Feel free to share our tour poster to spread the news:
I hope those of you who can’t come see me this Sunday at my Toronto launch will be able to drop on somewhere along the tour!

Earth & Sky is finally out in the world, and I’m eager to celebrate! So let’s get this party started.
–All day you can post questions or share your thoughts by commenting on this blog post, on the Facebook event page, or by tweeting them to @megancrewe. Remember, if you’ve already read the book and are asking or talking about an event from the story, please mark your comment with a SPOILER note so others who haven’t read yet can skip over it.
–I will also be posting a few questions here and on the FB wall which you can answer to win swag or books, so check back regularly!
–Watch my reading from Earth & Sky:
–Request a signed bookplate and bookmark to put in your copy of Earth & Sky over at the signing table.
–Join the launch party live chat from 8-9pm EST, during which I’ll be giving out a couple more prizes. Link and password to be posted here shortly beforehand!
–Enter to win the launch party prize pack, including a Kindle and three books of your choice. See the Rafflecopter form below–and note that there are now three new options that you can take advantage of to earn extra entries: commenting on this post, commenting on the FB event page wall, and posting a review on Amazon.com (for those who’ve read the book)!
All giveaways and the bookplates are open to readers all around the world.

Do you think aliens have ever visited Earth? Why/why not?
As promised, there will be an online launch party for Earth & Sky on its release date, October 28th! With just one week to go, I thought I’d share the details… and a special launch giveaway.
Because there’s going to be one BIG launch day prize, to get you warmed up I’m starting the giveaway today! The prize? A Kindle Paperwhite with a custom Earth & Sky cover, preloaded with the book, plus your choice of any three of my books or the books I’ve recommended here (see the first five links under For Readers), in whatever available format you prefer, and an Earth & Sky swag pack including star candies in Win’s favorite Earth flavors, bookmark, magnet, and sticker.
You can enter any time between now and the end of Oct 28th using the Rafflecopter form below. The giveaway is open internationally. And even after you’ve entered, don’t forget to check back, because I’ll be adding a few more ways to earn entries on the day of the launch!
Online Launch Party details:
The online launch party will take place on the event page on Facebook and here in a new post on my blog. On the event page wall, you’ll be able to ask questions and add comments about the book, and I’ll be holding a few quick giveaways of books and swag throughout the day. Here on the blog, you can ask and comment too, as well as checking out a video reading from the book and heading to the signing “booth” to request a personalized signed bookplate and bookmark. From 8-9pm EST, I’ll be hosting a live chat (link to be posted at that time on both the Facebook page and my blog) during which anyone is welcome to drop in, discuss the book, writing, or whatever else strikes your fancy, and possibly snag another prize.
(Note: Those in the Toronto area can also attend the in-person launch; details here.)
