UPDATE!!! 9 names have been randomly selected and I will systematically be contacting one winner at a time (from first to 9th) and as prizes are chosen, I go on to the next on the list with the remaining prizes to choose from. Keep checking your email over the next few days! Oh and CONGRATULATIONS to the winners! And I want to *hug* each and every one of you for your awesome comments (you guys made my DAY!!! My week and my month!!). Thank you all for taking the time to let me know YOUR favorite book. You can bet I will be adding a TON of them to my TBR list. If you loved ’em, chances are, so will I.
Latest update: Congratulations to Debra who selected the Kindle Fire, and to Michelle (who selected Karina’s books), Amber who selected Colleen Hoover’s signed books, Tracie who has selected the Beautiful Disaster signed hard cover, Nancy selected the Beautiful Disaster and Love Unscripted paperback books- more winner updates to follow.
20,000 likes!!! Wow. That might as well be a million as cool as that sounds!! I’m serious y’all. 20,000??? For REAL? Look at our group… so diverse and yet so alike ’cause we’re all recommending books that we’re reading & loving together. And it’s time for a MEGA giveaway to celebrate this HUGE milestone!
So… here’s me (and “Cookie”). 😉 Partying.
And here’s how we’re doin’ it!! First, here are the prizes:
- One Kindle Fire HD 7″, Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, 16 GB – Includes Special Offers!!!
- FOUR tickets to BOOK BASH in Orlando Florida on June 29th 2013. (Winner will need to handle hotel & flight, but this event is pretty much sold out, and we’ve got a few tickets for a lucky winner to get into the 70+ mega-author signing).
- All of Colleen Hoover’s published books (as of today – Slammed, Point of Retreat, Hopeless) SIGNED! AND!! “This Girl” (signed) when it becomes available in August!
- Gail McHugh’s “Collide (Volume 1)” —> SIGNED!!!
- Karina Halle’s Sins & Needles (The Artists Trilogy #1) and On Every Street (signed) + a magnet!! And these versions are rare, ’cause she’s just been signed on with a big publisher, and they will be re-published under the new publisher. You’ll be getting the “indie” signed originals. As much as I love published, getting my hands on signed indie books is TREASURE to me!!!!
- Katja Millay’s The Sea of Tranquility: A Novel in GALLEY format (which means it’s a rare uncorrected PROOF!!! SIGNED!!!) + a signed bookmark!
- Jamie McGuire’s SIGNED hardcover limited edition of Beautiful Disaster Special Signed Edition!
- Megan Hart’s signed copy of “Virtue and Vice (Order of Solace)” + fun Megan Hart swag (mouse pad, bookmarks, temp. tattoos, magnet etc….)
- A bundled set of two of my original favorites in print, from way back when… (Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire & Love Unscripted:The Love Series, Book 1 by Tina Reber). Unsigned, yes, but AWESOME and if you go to a signing, you can get them signed there!
So here’s how it’s gonna go. I’m going to open this up to international, and choose NINE winners. The only one limited to US is the Kindle Fire, only ’cause I think you have to have a US account to use this Kindle. So if you are from another country other than US, and you can pick the Kindle Fire HD as a prize, it *may* not work for you.
I’ll choose nine separate winners, from first to ninth, and the first winner will get their pick out of the nine, 2nd, will get their pick of one of 8, and so on until there is one left for the ninth winner. All prizes rock, though, so this will be GREAT!
Okay AND!!! Today’s milestone donation from Maryse’s Book Blog will be to the “March of Dimes“. 😀
