Double digit giveaway!!!

Want a chance to win a $99 gift card to iTunes or Amazon? Well, you came to the wrong place!

I kid, I kid.

My next book, November 9, releases…November 10th.

I know, I know. Whoever thought releasing books only on Tuesdays obviously didn’t have this one in mind. Thanks, Tuesday-release-day-maker-person-dude. You just royally pissed off a bunch of readers with OCD.

Technically, though, if you pre-order the book from iBooks or Amazon, you usually get it an hour or two early, which means you will actually receive November 9 on November 9th rather than the 10th. Problem solved! And the best part is, you don’t get charged for the preorder until release day! (Shameless plugs are what I’m all about. I lost my teaching certification this week, so I guess I need to start taking this writing thing more seriously and like…market and stuff.)

Anyway, now that we only have 99 days left until the release of November 9, I’m going to make those preorders a whole lot easier! I’m giving away a $99 gift card to either iTunes or Amazon, winners choice. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post to enter! I’ll choose a winner at random on Thursday, August whatever. I don’t have my calendar. But the next Thursday that comes, that’ll be the day. I’ll edit this post and list the winner at the bottom. On Thursday.

Okay, now go buy this entire album by one of my new favorite bands, X Ambassadors. My 14-year-old son introduced them to me a few months ago and I’m obsessed. These songs got me through a lot of late nights writing this book. My faves are Unsteady, Naked, Renegade and all of the rest of them.

Okay, now don’t let my rambling leave you forgetful. Comment below to enter the giveaway.


Graphics contest/GIVEAWAY!



November 9 is coming out in just a few weeks (Okay, like 14, but that’s really not very far away!)

I’m posting a few quotes from the book below and leaving it up to you guys to make some cool graphics that I can share online! If your graphic is chosen, you will win a signed copy of November 9, plus a $25 gift card to Amazon or iTunes! I’ll be choosing two or more winners every week until the book releases in November!

To enter, just make a graphic using one of the quotes provided, then post it on Instagram or Twitter. Make sure to use the hashtag #November9 and #ColleenHoover so I’ll find your graphics when I do my daily hashtag search! You can also tag me on FB or post the graphic to my author page, but FB sometimes hides stuff there. If you don’t use instagram or twitter, you can always email me the graphics to to make sure I get them. And as always, this contest is open to international entries!

Here are some quotes to choose from! Ready, set, go! :D

1) “You can’t leave yet. I’m not finished falling in love with you.”


2) “You’ll never be able to find yourself if you’re lost in someone else.”


3) “If we’re going to kiss, it has to be book-worthy.”


4) “How the hell am I supposed to say goodbye to her tonight, knowing I’ll never talk to her again?”


5) “I thought I was stronger than a word, but I just discovered that having to say goodbye to you is by far the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.”


6) “It’s easy to fall in love, Ben. The hard part comes when you want out.”


7) “His mouth, coupled with the way his hand is sliding down my arm, is all too much. So much. Good much. So good. I just whimpered.”


8) “Why do you look like you’re in pain?” she asks.

“Because keeping my mouth off you hurts like hell.”


9) “I missed you,” he says. “A lot. And screw it if I’m not supposed to admit that, but I tried the whole alpha-male thing for two seconds and I just can’t do it. So you don’t get alpha-Ben today. I’m sorry.”


10) “Fallon, I’m worked up so damn tight. I’m going to kiss you now and I’m not sorry.”


11) “Do you even have a job, Ben? I can’t believe I don’t know that about you. I let you fondle my breasts and I don’t even know what you do for a living.”


12) “If she’s not careful, I might just fall in love with her. Tonight.”


13) “I don’t want to be your first, Fallon. I want to be your last.”


14) “When you find love, you take it. You grab it with both hands and you do everything in your power not to let it go. You can’t just walk away from it and expect it to linger until you’re ready for it.”


15) “I would never have let anyone else borrow my heart if I knew there was a chance in hell you might want it back.”


16) “I think about you every second of every day and I don’t know how to get over you,” she says.

“Don’t,” I beg her. “Please don’t get over me.”

17) “You left with my soul in your fists and my heart in your teeth, and I don’t want either of them back.” ~Ben

Movie Teaser

Did you guys see the Ugly Love movie teaser?

Lots of questions are pouring in about the process of turning the book into a film. Keep in mind that I wrote the book. I’m not making the film, so I can’t answer all the questions I’m receiving. However, I have absolute confidence that Hackybox Pictures will do the book justice and I’m excited to see how it plays out.

The film has been in pre-production, which means they haven’t officially started filming yet. But I’m so excited to see who they cast for Tate! To follow along and be a part of the action, join the Ugly Love indie go-go campaign. This is a fun way for Nick Bateman fans and fans of the book to be included in the making of Ugly Love.

Also, for a chance to win a signed copy of Ugly Love, just share this post and comment below that you shared. I’ll choose five winners on Monday!
