There is a post going around tumblr with tens of thousands of notes saying that I “announced” that a certain character in my book The Fault in Our Stars dies one year after the end of the book.

1. I have never said, written, or thought any such thing. (Photoshop is magic!)

2. If I had said, written, or thought any such thing (which, again, I did not), it would not become true. As you’ve probably heard me say a gajillion times, I don’t think the voice of the author should be privileged when it comes to matters outside a book’s text. So if I ever make such an “announcement,” I don’t think it should carry more weight than any other reader’s speculation.

I ended The Fault in Our Stars where I wanted to end it. I have never said anything about what might happen before or after what’s depicted in the book. I finished writing it, for better or for worse, and it now belongs to you.

Hey, everyone, I just reached 1,000 followers, and this is my very special thank you to each of you for well, a lot of reasons that would take me a while to list. Let’s just say, it feels nice to be included in something that means something to you even if it’s “just books”. So, for the rest of the year, this will be my main giveaway. There will be no more big ones like this for the rest of the year.

Above is the “Barnes and Noble Leatherbound Boxset” (I know a lot of people fancy these editions) which includes:

  • The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
  • Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
  • Jane Erye by Charlotte Bronte
  • Dracula by Bram Stoker
  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  • The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

Now, the rules for this giveaway are as follows:

  • You must be following me.
  • If you win, you must be willing to give me your address. I will not share it with anyone, and I will not save it. It will be strictly for shipping purposes only.
  • If you live on Earth, you may enter. It’s w-w-w-worldwide.
  • No, you DO NOT have to pay for shipping.
  • You may like and reblog as many times as you want.
  • And hey, if you’re really desperate for that extra entry, you can follow me on twitter (you don’t have to at all). My twitter is @__aprilreads.
  • This giveaway will end on December 31, 2013 and the ONE winner will be chosen by a random number generator. 

Good luck, and thank you so much for everything!

5 days, guys!
