Two years ago on my family blog There’s Always Room for One More, I had a Six Days of Christmas giveaway. For six days, I gave a prize away. The prizes started small and worked their way up to a couple of big ones– an electronic picture frame and a Zune mp3 player.
My entire family got involved with the giveaway and my oldest daughter still talks about it. So I thought: Why not do something similar this year?
So I am!
Welcome to My Favorite Things Giveaway!!!
This giveaway is all about my favorite things. Lucky for you, I have lots of favorite things.
My most favorite thing in the world is my kids. But obviously, I
can’t won’t give them away. So what’s almost like my children?
My addiction to Starbucks is known far and wide. I’ve written blog posts about it (Which is really quite sad. Especially when you notice the plural.) It seems only natural that I would giveaway something Starbucks related. However, my favorite drink–a nonfat, no whip Mocha–might be hard to send through the mail. So how about a gift card instead?
I like to read. I used to read a LOT before I started writing full time. Still, I probably read more than than the average person. (Forty-six book so far this year.) So I want to share my love of reading. With a Barnes & Noble gift card.
Sometimes those books take up a lot of space. Or sometimes, I’m too impatient to wait for a print book to arrive in the mail. What’s an impulsive, impatient person like me supposed to do? (Besides learning to control my implusiveness.) Download eBooks. What’s that? You’d love to do that too but you don’t have an ereader. Let me hook you up:
Now you’re saying “How do I win these awesome prizes???”
I’m so glad you asked!
Post a review of one of my books somewhere and get an entry. Post it somewhere else (can be the same review) and get another. The possibilities are endless. (Not really endless, but I’m too lazy to do the math.) Where can you post it? Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, Goodreads, Shelfari, Library Things, your own blog, Tweet about the book, post about it Facebook– See? TONS of options to get entries to win. Then multiply that by FOUR because there are four books.
Endless. Or close to it.
Now you’re saying, “But I already posted a review! That’s not fair!” To which I say, “You’re still eligible!” You can get entries for ANY review you’ve posted, no matter how long ago. Although if you posted something before July, 2011, I’ll suspect something’s up since my first book, Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes, just came out in the beginning of July.
All you have to do is leave a comment telling me which book and the link to where you posted the review. You can leave all the links in one comment or put them in separate comments. It’s entirely up to you.
BUT WAIT. You have a chance to get EXTRA ENTRIES.
As of right now, Here only has six reviews on Amazon and Hunted only has one review. The next four reviews for Here will get FIVE entries each, and the next nine reviews for Hunted will get FIVE entries each. (Each up to a total of ten. After they reach ten reviews each, the entry will count as one. The reviews left on other sites still count as one each.)
All entries are eligble for ALL prizes. You name and entry number will not be pulled from the number pool if you win one of the other prizes.
The contest runs until Sunday December 18, 2001 at midnight, CST. Winners will all be picked and announced the morning of Monday, December 19. Entries are limited to United States and Canada due to the cost of shipping overseas.
Good luck. And THANK YOU!
*** You can let me know about your reviews in the comment section below, on Facebook or through Twitter. If you use Facebook or Twitter, just make sure I let you know that I got your entry!***
This contest is closed. Winners will be announced shortly.
