International Giveaway: Win a Signed ARC of 17 & GONE

I’ve been sick with a cruel end-of-summer cold this week, but don’t you worry about me, because while I was sick at home yesterday, the buzzer rang and it was UPS with two gifts for me…

…my new writing desk! (Which I will photograph for you once it’s out of the box and put-together in the bedroom)…

…and my ARCs of my new novel, 17 & Gone!

Here’s what the book’s about:

Seventeen-year-old Lauren is having visions of girls who have gone missing. And all these girls have just one thing in common—they are 17 and gone without a trace. As Lauren struggles to shake these waking nightmares, impossible questions demand urgent answers: Why are the girls speaking to Lauren? How can she help them? And… is she next? As Lauren searches for clues, everything begins to unravel, and when a brush with death lands her in the hospital, a shocking truth emerges, changing everything.

With complexity and richness, Nova Ren Suma serves up a beautiful, visual, fresh interpretation of what it means to be lost.

And here’s what Libba Bray said about it:

“Elegant, riveting, powerful, and poignant, this suspenseful, supernatural tale slips under the skin, inking out a haunting tapestry of menace and madness. Nova Ren Suma is, quite simply, a masterful storyteller and one of my favorite writers.”

—Libba Bray, author of The Diviners and A Great and Terrible Beauty

  4. I want it I want it I want it!!!! Imaginary Girls is one of the best books I’ve read in so long and I am dying for more loveliness from you! Can’t wait to read it – even if I don’t win🙂

  5. -jumps up and down- Thank you so much for the giveaway! I’ve been excited about this novel since I first saw it added to Goodreads last November and the release date can’t come any more quickly. I’m sure it will be just as fantastic, if not more so, than Imaginary Girls and Dani Noir.

  6. Yay! Congrats on the blurb and getting your ARCs! The cover is absolutely gorgeous, and the story sounds awesome! Can’t wait! Thanks so much for the giveaway!!😀

  7. Yes please! I LOVED Imaginary Girls and have been impatiently waiting for your next book😉

    And how awesome is that blurb?!

  8. Congrats on the upcoming release and on the Libba Bray blurb! That’s amazing! I’m sure it means a lot and it’s well deserved. Can’t wait to read 17 & GONE!!! (like I needed any more convincing… That blurb is full of awesome!;))

  9. I’m just reading Imaginary Girls now, and I love it! Cannot wait to read your other books, and if it’s a beautiful ARC then I would be over the moon🙂

  10. I love the cover! And I think I will most definitely love this book. Want it, want it, want it!🙂

  11. I’m glad you ended that book wich seems to be amazingly plenty of mistery and questions without easy answers. I always liked reading those kind of books.

    Since I live in Europe, I wonder if it wouldn’t be way hard to purchase it. I really feel like reading it after checking the sinopsis.


  12. Well, this looks like a must read for all. If I’m lucky enough to snag an ARC I will share my review on various sites, so others will be prompted to grab a copy as well. If not, I’ll just have to wait to do the same. Good luck to us all…

  13. I love how the cover is so rich in texture and colour, it’s wonderfully layered. I hope the story will be as beautiful (and as layered :D) ! The blurb sounds promising … Greetings from Belgium!

  14. Wow! 17 & GONE looks absolutely amazing! The cover is fantastic and the fact that Libba Bray blurbed it makes me want to read it even more! I will definitely be reading it ASAP!

  15. I got home from vacation on Sunday, and must have picked up something at the airport because I’ve been feeling sick since then.😦 I hope you’re feeling better, and that the ARCs of your new book arriving at your home lift your spirits.

    Thanks for the giveaway!🙂 I’m so glad it’s open to those outside the US.

  16. Yes, please! Imaginary Girls is my favorite book and I’ve been dying for this one to come out. Thanks so much for doing a giveaway🙂

  17. WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT…. I could say that forever. Regardless, I want March to be here so I can buy a copy! I am so happy for you, Nova, and I can’t wait to read this novel. “Imaginary Girls” means so much to me & Kenzie, and I just can’t wait to get caught up in your storytelling again with a new tale.
    Congratulations on your ARCs!

  18. Awesome blurb! (Libba! Yay!) And the book sounds SO good–really looking forward to it. (I can see that getting those beauties AND a new desk all in one day would definitely make up for the sucky cold. Still, I hope you feel better soon.)

  19. OMG!!!!!! Gimme, gimme, gimme!!!🙂 This book sounds amazing and I’m dying to read it!🙂 Thanks for a chance to win it!

  20. It’s hard to say which I’d be more excited about if I were you, the book or the desk! Haha. Just kidding. It would definitely be the book. But a good writing desk sounds pretty awesome, too. Your book sounds really interesting. I can’t wait to read it!🙂

  21. Congratulations! This sounds like a really interesting concept–I’m interested to see where it goes! Thanks for the giveaway, and good luck with the desk!

  22. Imaginary Girls was one of those books that strongly impacted my writing. I will be a longtime fan of Nova Ren Suma and I look forward to reading 17 & Gone even if I have to wait until March. (But I would love a chance to get my hands on an ARC ;))

  23. I loved Imaginary Girls so much, it was a great book, so I’m really looking forward to 17 & Gone! Thank you for this giveaway! *keeps fingers crossed*

  24. OMG! This sounds like just the book I’ve been looking forward. Like a supernatural thriller with a twist kind of plot. I read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and I’m now hooked on this kind of thing. I NEED this book in my life. Right now. Love the cover too.❤

  25. I hope you are feeling better and that your new desk is just what you wanted! I can’t wait to read your new book, so I hope I win this contest! Thanks for having it!

  26. 17 & Gone sounds so amazing! I’m intrigued by a character that is having visions of missing girls, it also seems like it could be a little creepy, which is good :0)

    Thanks for the chance! Whoever wins is very lucky!!

  27. OMG! I want want want want.❤ Cannot wait to read your new book😀 It will be awesome.❤ Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway🙂 *Fingers crossed.*
    Love, Carina

  36. Oh my gosh! YES! I am so super duper excited for this book. I’ve been needing a reason to hurry and pick up my copy of Imaginary Girls, so with the 17 and Gone, I’m now dying to score a copy of this one so that I can read it as voraciously as I know I’ll read the other.🙂

  37. it’s not even my book but I’m overwhelmed at the response you’re getting! everyone wants 17&Gone! That’s awesome for you but not so awesome for the hundreds of reaching hands in this post haha.

Every novel you write just gets better and better…keep it up, and you might explode the universe. (In a totally good way, I mean.) Congrats, and looking forward to getting my hands on a copy — an ARC or through the old-fashioned dollar-exchange system!

  39. I’m so thrilled for you! Your writing is haunting in the best possible way, meaning it’s absolutely unforgettable. I expect 17 AND GONE will live up to your previous books, and I’ll be so disappointed if I have to wait until next March to read it.😉

  40. How haunting! To see visions of girls gone missing…and all 17 years-old. Now, I’m glad I’m beyond those years!! So curious now, to know what happens next! Thanks for hosting this giveaway! Count me in! I’d love to win a copy!
