The #DRAMADAY Contest!

Since the DRAMA release date is quickly approaching, I'd like to give everyone a chance to get in on the fun--not just buying the book, but making it into a celebration. So: I'm announcing a CONTEST!

DRAMADAY Contest Rules:

1. Take a photo of yourself (or you and your friends) buying a copy of DRAMA on or near the release date. If you want to dress up as the main character, Callie, or any of the other characters...even better.

2. Post it somewhere! Your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr...anywhere!

3. "Like" my Facebook page, Raina Telgemeier's Comics.

4. Post a link to your photo/blog post/tweet/tumbl/etc on my Facebook page. Be sure to include the word #DRAMADAY (including the # symbol) in the post!

That's it! You have until Saturday, September 8 at midnight EST to enter.


I will pick three entries at random from the posts on my Facebook page! I'm going to award three (3) prizes:

1. Original art of the DRAMA characters, by me!

2. A chance to "meet" me over Skype! You and I will both appear as guests on a future episode of the Comics Are Great live broadcast, and we can talk about whatever you like on the air!

3. A SMILE t-shirt in your choice of sizes.


Here are some other things you can do if you simply want to participate in #DRAMADAY:

--Write a review on Goodreads, Amazon, Shelfari, B&N, or any other site that lets you review books!

--Draw some fan art! There's nothing an artist loves more than seeing her characters interpreted by others.

Here are a couple of web banners you can post on your site, to help spread the word about #DRAMADAY!

Thanks to my friend Jerzy, who not only made the banners you see here, but suggested the idea of #DRAMADAY in the first place!

Smile Giveaway!

Today, I'm pleased to announce the first SMILE GIVEAWAY CONTEST! Little Willow, over at, wants to hear your most embarrassing dental story! You can submit the story as an essay, a comic, an illustration, a photo, a web video...anything you like! Best of all, the stories can be true or false, so anyone can enter (even those of you lucky enough to have never had any dental drama in your lives)!

The contest will run until February 28, so you've got a bit of time to come up with your entry. Have fun with this! I'm helping to judge at the end, so I'll get to see all of the entries, too. I can't wait.

In addition to the contest, LW is also collecting quotes from some of her readers, answering the question, "What makes you smile?" I gave the first answer, and this link will continue to update with more answers throughout the month. Have a look! :)
