Read Or Write Anywhere!

Whoa! It’s contest time! The YA Chicks are running the Read Anywhere Write Anywhere contest, where YOU can win free books and other stuff! From May 22nd at 9:00 AM EST through May 31st at 11:00 PM EST.

Just visit fine author sites such as this one and find pictures of authors a) reading anywhere, or b) writing anywhere. YOUR job is to guess where these pictures were taken. If you’re right, you’ll be entered to win! Because we’re not monsters, each author will provide five clues.



1. This is a photograph of me with a large elephant. (Okay, some clues are less helpful than others….)

2. This is not a real elephant, as you can tell by the fact that I’m standing there with a serene expression, instead of running around screaming as I try to avoid being stomped by its mighty feet.

3. You can actually go on a tour inside of this elephant. Cool, huh? How often do you get to walk around inside of a giant elephant?

4. The book Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, though one of my favorite books of all time, is unrelated to this picture. Sorry.

5. The elephant’s name rhymes with “You-See.” It’s a tourist attraction in a city where, if you play Monopoly, you’ll recognize many of the street names.

To enter your answer, head on over to!
