Winner Announcement!! Congratulations to: Sara, Paige & Tina who have each responded to their notification and will be receiving one of these gifts!
We are having TWO giveaways tonight!! The first giveaway will be for tonight’s NEW YEAR’S EVE Celebration!! Happy NEW YEARS everybody!! Has this been the best year, or what?? Absolutely amazing. I have all of you as my new friends, we’ve read a plethora of awesome books together, cried together, *squeeee’d* together. I couldn’t be happier. Can you imagine what 2013 is going to be like? You think out TBR list is bad right now… eeeeeep!! I’m so excited!
So… do you guys remember the last book I read in 2011? It was this one —> On the Island: A Novel (by the way, coincidentally enough the ebook is bargain priced tonight - I’m telling you guys, it’s kismet!).
So anyway, Tracey Garvis Graves sent me a SIGNED copy to give away during our holiday celebration (THANK YOU TRACEY!!! *hug*). We just missed the 25 days of Christmas, but!! I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the end of 2012, than with a giveaway for a signed copy of my last read in 2011. Back then it was still indie, and pretty new, and it blew my mind. I LOVED it (check out my review <– look. at. that. December 30th 2011). And now… that book has been signed with Penguin!! This couldn’t be cooler! And of course, it made my best of 2011 list. So I have a copy, for one lucky commenter tonight.
BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! —> OKAY!!! We’re choosing a third winner for another giveaway!!! Author Tina Reber (my partner in crime back in my “On the Island” review – we were both LOVING it) is adding a signed set of her books “Love Unscripted:The Love Series, Book 1” (which made my best of 2011 list) and “Love Unrehearsed: The Love Series, Book 2” (which made me best of 2012 list) to tonight’s party!! *squeeeee* (so this will be giveaway #2).
AND!!! The third giveaway? Well we just so happened to make it to 13,000 Facebook likes last last night, and so, you know what that means. Time to have a celebratory *squeeeeeeeee* AND a giveaway. I’m giving away a $30 Amazon or Barnes and Noble gift card. AND!! I’ll also be making a donation to a charity (Make a Wish).
How to enter for a chance to win? Just leave a comment below (and oh… I dunno… tell us what will you be doing to bring in the New Year…), and tomorrow by 10pm EST (01/01/2013), I will randomly select THREE winners (first random selection will get the signed “On the Island” book, the second will receive Tina Reber’s signed “LOVE” books, and the third will get the gift card). The winners will be contacted and once I receive a response back confirming address info, the gifts will be sent!
NOTE: The winners will have 48 hours to respond to the winning email notification. If no response is received, I will randomly select another winner. Make sure to check your email, so you do not loose your chance. This is open to everyone that can receive an emailed giftcard from either of these two companies! International for the signed “On The Island” book, too!
