Vote Alex in the YA Heroine Tourney Round 2 + Ebook Giveaway

Okay people, we are now into round 2 of the YA Tournament of Heroines. The competition is tough and Alex from Half-Blood needs your votes. She will be up against Rose from Vampire Academy. The voting opens at Midnight on December 23rd so make sure you vote for Alex, and tell everyone you know to vote for her. Heck you can even walk up to random strangers and tell them to vote too if you want. I am sure Alex will appreciate your support. Why should you vote for her you ask? Well because she is made of awesome. Not just awesome, but super cool, totally bad@$$ awesome. Not convinced? Okay I will list five reasons why you should vote for Alex on Friday.

1. She is a daimon killing machine!! I mean really, I would not want to mess with this chick. This is from pg 2 in the book.
My foot connected with the side of his head. The impact sent him staggering into the opposite wall.I spun around, slamming my hand into him. Surprise turned to horror as the daimon looked down at the garden spade buried deep in his stomach.

2.She's brave. She goes through quite a bit, but she never breaks completely, even though it would be very easy to fall apart. If you've read Half-Blood, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't, what are you waiting for? Oh, and you should just take my word for it until you actually do read it. 

3. She has spunk. She's sarcastic, and funny, and causes a bit of trouble (but it's funny). Don't we all want a great heroine with a sense of humor and awesome comebacks? Check out this bit of trouble making.
As the guards opened the door for us, I remembered the last time I'd been in this office for a lecture. I'd been fourteen, and out of  boredom, I'd convinced one of the pures to flood the science wing using the water element.Of course the pure had totally ratted me out. Nasso was not pleased.  

4 Aiden wants you to. Really he does, and who can turn down Aiden. He is so swoon worthy. Right when he is introduced I wanted more of him.
The fire did not singe his pants nor dirty his shirt. Not a single Dark hair was touched by the blaze.Those storm-cloud-colored eyes fixed on me. It was him - Aiden St. Delphi. 
And Aiden thinks very highly of Alex. In his own words. 
"You're so beautiful. So brave, so full of life.  "You have no idea, do you?You have so much life in you, so much." 
Oh Aiden, of course I will vote for Alex for you. *sigh* 

5. JLA has incentives at different intervals of the voting.
If Alex reaches 500 votes, she will give us a juicy scene from Pure. She says it involves a pool. (edited to avoid spoilers though)
If Alex reaches 750 votes, she will give us chapter 16 from Half-Blood from Aiden's PoV. Oh yes, THAT scene. OMG you want this. I am telling you. No, more than that. You NEED this!! REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, NEED THIS!! Oh, sorry got a little carried away for a moment. *takes deep breath* Okay all better now. For those who have read Half-Blood, we are practically dying wanting this, and you will be too after you read it. 
If Alex reaches1000 votes, she will give us chapter 26 from Obsidian from Daemon's PoV. SQUEEEE! That chapter is HOT!! In Daemons head, I can only imagine how much hotter. OMG! THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN! *dies a little thinking about it* *fans face* Excuse me for a moment while I pull myself together.......................I'm good now.
If Alex wins, JLA will write in her words "a very lengthy scene/ basically a freaking novella from Aiden's PoV about a trip he and Leon took that involved searching down a certain daimon that got away at the end of Half-Blood.
(Keep in mind that all of this awesomeness will take time, so we must be patient waiting for it. JLA is all sorts of busy writing, so we can't expect this to magically appear out of nowhere)

So, come on guys, we really need for Alex to win. Spread the word however you can. Vote from your phone, your computer, computers at the library, anything. Just try to get in as many votes as possible. Keep in mind that you can vote from different browsers on your computer too if you have more than one. 

There we have it. Five reasons that you should vote for Alex on Friday. Please spread the word on twitter and use the hashtags #TeamAlex and #HeroineTourney. Go to Ya Sisterhood's blog to vote. Also, Alex's advocate Momo at Books Over Boys will be doing a giveaway on her blog for Daimon (prequel), Half-Blood, and a pre-order of Pure. How awesome is that?  Look how pretty they are. (I was going to add  the Deity cover too, but since it's not part of the giveaway I don't want to be a tease.) She is the most rockin' advocate ever, so make sure to check out her blog. Just sayin'! ;) She has put a lot into getting #TeamAlex support. Also as an incentive to vote, I will also be doing a giveaway right here on my blog for an ebook copy of Daimon and Half_Blood for Nook or Kindle. I can gift it to you from B&N or Amazon. (And ebook means my giveaway is international guys! No shipping for me to pay for.) There is no requirements to enter, but Alex would really appreciate your vote. Okay, stop wasting time on my blog now (although I appreciate the fact you want to read my ramblings). Go vote Alex!
