Shut Out Shout Out Contest!

So today my second novel, SHUT OUT, officially hits shelves.





And to celebrate I am holding a fun contest!
But I wanted to do something fun and different. Something I'd never done as a prize before. Something that you couldn't put a price on. And, with the help of the other YA Highway girls, I I found the perfect answer.

It's time for a Shut Out Shout Out.

In honor of Shut Out, I'm doing a Shout Out contest! Which means one lucky winner will see their name somewhere in my 4th book. It'll be a character named for them. I would do third book, but that one is already done. So it'll be the fourth, whichever novel that may be.

How to Enter
All you have to do is comment on this post! No, seriously, that's it! Be sure and list a twitter account or email so I can contact you if you're the winner. I'll pick a winner this FRIDAY (September 9th) at 12pm EST.

Best of luck! And thanks for supporting me through two novels now!

And On a Different Note
This is for the YA Highway girls.

Guys, you are amazing. You have stuck by me from day one. You have made me feel less crazy. You have been my friends, my therapists, my fans, my family. I don't know if I could have done any of this without you all. There is a reason SHUT OUT is dedicated to you, and it's this:

I love you all.

Kody Keplilnger

  51. Shut Out was absolutely amazing! Kody is definitely becoming one of my favorite authors! I'm already having withdrawals! I need more KODY BOOKS!!! Really looking forward to "A Midsummer's Nightmare". Loved the Shakespeare version, so I'm sure this next one will be an amazing modern day version just like "Shut Out" was to Lysistrata. Can't wait!!! I'll be shaking miserably until I get that new book in my hands lol
