Announcing #PenguinChats with Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl and Giveaway!

Beautiful CreaturesOnce Upon a Bookcase has become one of Penguin's official blog partner in a brand new project they have started called #PenguinChats. This is a brand new idea from Penguin intended to connect the incredible community of YA bloggers and readers with some of their most exciting YA authors. A 'Penguin Chat' itself will be a 30 minute Q&A with a Penguin author on Twitter, using #PenguinChats and hosted by @PenguinUKBooks, which has 565,000 followers. They are inviting you to put your questions to the author to receive an immediate and live response.

Very excitingly, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, authors of Beautiful Creatures, have agreed to lead the way with this on Penguin's inaugural #PenguinChats on Sunday 27th January at 8pm, during which time they will be there to answer all questions on the series and the upcoming movie. You can find more details about #PenguinChats on the Penguin Blog.

And as I'm an official blog partner, I have some goodies to share with you! Keep reading for some movie images and for a giveaway to win Beautiful Creatures: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion and the Beautiful Creatures: The Manga!
