Win This Signed, Annotated Copy of FIRE & FLOOD!

Victoria Scott

Annotated copies of books are amazeballs! I’ve always thought so. I mean, it allows you to get a sneak peek inside the author’s mind as they wrote certain scenes, and realize just how much work and thought went into a particular book. Plus, it’s one of a kind. When an author annotates, it’s usually an original. Even though I love the concept of annotated books, I’ve never done one of my own. It seemed like it would take way too much time, and that’s something few of us have. But alas! I’ve changed my mind and decided, in honor of Salt & Stone releasing in four little months, I’ll give away this signed, completely annotated copy of Fire & Flood. Woot!
