So, last week sometime, I reached 100 followers, and, if you follow me on twitter, you'll know that I've been promising a super giveaway/contest/draw/whatever you want to call it to celebrate. Because I am SUPER excited about it!
I mean, I still remember how I ridiculously excited I felt when I got my very first follower (thank you Aimee from my fluttering heart) - and now I have 100 (or 117 to be precise) times that. Which means that I am 117 times more excited! So I'm hosting an INTERNATIONAL Super Mega Radical Star-Studded 100 Followers Contest!
I tried to make a Contest Button, but as you can see I kind of suck at that kind of thing. I tried, though, right. And that's what counts.
Here's what's up for grabs
-one lightly used copy of Hush, Hush (it's not lightly used yet because I haven't read it yet, but it will be)
-one lightly used copy of Evermore (my review here)
-one lightly used copy of Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
-one used copy of the City and the Stars by Arthur C. Clark (my review here)
one lightly used copy of the Over the Holidays (my review here)
-lots of surprise goodies - books and swag and all sorts of things!
Why the surprises, you ask? Well, first of all, I LOVE surprises! And second of all, I have a TON of stuff stocked at my Dad's house back in the states, and since I will be returning for Christmas, I'll pick some things out and surprise even myself.
Now, here's how it works.
There will be *2* winners!! Both will get some fun surprises from the surprise pile and after that, well, I haven't quite worked out the details, but it will be a mixture of randomness and what they tell me they want when I e-mail them.
1)I reached 150 followers and picked a first winner! wildflower00 chose "Over the Holidays," so that book is no longer an option.
2)I reached 175 followers, so now there will be *3*, not 2 winners! Yay!
If I manage to get to 200 before the end, I will do another right then and there contest where I will give the winner the option to choose one of three randomly selected books, at least one of which will be on the list above.
And when does this fabulousness end, you ask? It's December 18th, 2009 at 8PM Central time. I will do my best to announce the winners on December 19th. And hopefully, if the mail system isn't too overloaded, you'll get your books like a sort-of Christmas present. :-) Oh, and it's open INTERNATIONALLY! Meaning that, no matter where you are in the world, you can enter!
