Thank you so much to everyone who came out and helped us celebrate the official launch of Living Your Five.

We're all incredibly thrilled--and humbled--by the enthusiasm you've shown. And this is only the beginning!

As promised, to show our gratitude for helping us spread the word about Living Your Five, we're delighted to be offering up some lovely prizes! First up... the individual Fiver books. Congratulations go out to:

** MONTANA - winner of a signed copy of Alyson Noel's BLUE MOON

** BELLY - winner of a signed copy of Becca Fitzpatrick's HUSH, HUSH (after release)

** BRODIE - winner of a signed copy of Tera Lynn Childs' OH. MY. GODS. -or- GODDESS BOOT CAMP

We also have a mega grand prize for one lucky commenter! The grand prize package includes:

A $100 Barnes & Noble gift card

(that's four signed books!)

And the winner of the Living Your Five launch week grand prize is...


Congratulations to all of our winners!!! To receive your prize, simply contact me here with your mailing address.

Thanks again to everyone for your enthusiasm and cheer. We'll be kicking off our two-week rotation on Monday where we'll be sharing what we've done in the last two weeks to live our Five. Here's the regular schedule for our rotation:

Week 1
MON - Kay Cassidy
WED - Alyson Noel
FRI - Friday FiveSpot (guest Fivers, insider Q&As and inspirational features)

Week 2
MON - Becca Fitzpatrick
WED - Tera Lynn Childs
FRI - Friday FiveSpot (more guest Fivers, insider Q&As and inspirational features)

And remember... if YOU want to be an Honorary Fiver, be thinking about your own personal Five. We'll have our monthly Honorary Fiver feature on the first Friday of every month. The first one is coming up next Friday, September 4th so get ready for it! You can only become an Honorary Fiver (and earn the official Honorary Fiver badge for your web site or blog!) by sharing your Five on an official Honorary Fiver Friday. Stay tuned for more details next week!

Are you ready to Live Your Five?

    And a huge CONGRATS to the other winners! I would love to hear which charity Lizzy chooses to support - I think we're all winners in that respect, being apart of LYF and knowing the $100 is going to a good cause.

    This whole thing is amazing, kudos to you girls! I'm excited to see the coming weeks ahead and how it all evolves.

  4. Congratulations to all the winners! I look forward to hearing more about your guys' five in the coming weeks.

  8. Huge Congrats to the winners and to everyone who joined us and shared their Five last week! I'm so excited to be part of this community, and am looking forward to sharing my Five journey and hearing all about yours!

    Thanks Everyone!!

  9. I'm so excited now! (unless there's another Erica) because The Cinderella Society was a book at the top of my wishlist! :)

    And congrats to the other winners. :)

  10. Congrats to all the other winners! Well, I already know which non-profit I'm going to choose, so I'll post it here (and the story behind it, of course).

    my choice is the National Breast Cancer Foundation ( It was founded by a breast cancer survivor, and the money donated goes toward programs which can help women with things like screenings, and education. My grandmother actually passed away from breast cancer during my freshman year of high school, so this cause is extremely important to me. She never expected it to happen to her, so there was no early detection.

    Thanks to all the authors, I can't wait to read more from Living Your Five!

  11. Awesome! Way to go, winners! Can't wait to go on this journey together :)

  12. Congrats!
    And I'll definitely be joining you on Sept 4th!

  13. Congrats to the winners. Have fun with your new books. :)
