THIS CONTEST HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL MAY 31, 2012. YOU MAY ENTER UNTIL THEN.
I am going to be about very sporadically in the next few weeks. I am currently in the midst of edits and rewrites on my fairy tale draft. Expect guest posts for a little while from outside folk.
However, I thought in the interim I would toss up a giveaway for a book that I know many of you want – The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead. I have one Advanced Reader’s Copy to give away at this point. Mead is visiting the store I work at on June 12th at 7 PM in Lansing MI and we are very excited to be hosting her. For those who would like to come to the event, here’s the address:
Schuler Books & Music
2820 Towne Center Blvd.
Lansing, MI 48912
So, we are going to do a giveaway in the style of the Rothpunkk giveaway from earlier this year.
And, of course, we are playing the guessing game.
For those of you who have not ever entered a giveaway on Bibliopunkk it’s simple… I’m thinking of a number between 1 and 10,000. Leave your number guess in the comments with an email so I can contact the winner later (the email is necessary to enter, folks). First person to guess the correct number wins. I’ll repeat – if two people suggest the same number only the first person to guess it gets the book. I will close this contest on May 24th, 2012. This contest is International.
Now… here’s the twist… I want to give you folks as many chances to win as possible, so I am upping the odds a little. I want you to pass on the word that I am giving this amazing book away… so, for every social media site update, tweet, goodreads blurb, blog mention, tumblr, live journal post (etc. etc.) that you spread online you get an additional chance to guess at a number. You get one free chance to enter, then you must work for the next chance. All I ask is that wherever you mention the contest you return and give me the link in the comments… you give a link, you get another guess…. you give 20 links, you get 20 more guesses… and so forth and so on. Keep doing it the next few weeks, you keep getting chances. It’s that simple.
So post.. and post… and repost… you can retweet the devil out of it for all I care… just post! Get this out into the aether people… repost all day if you must. The number of times you can do this is infinite, as long as you keep copy/pasting links back to me.
No private emails please, this will not count. Neither will “so, I told my friend about it” without a link to where you told your friend about it. I need a link to be able to see that the contest was mentioned somewhere online… something I can verify. If you provide a bad link your entry will not count. Even if it is the correct number. I do not appreciate or reward frauds.
Also, there is a not-so-secret word you must place in the posts around the internet… because I love not-so-secret words… and I can easily find it online in a word search…. The not-so-secret word is:
So, spreading “the word” benefits you immensely in this case… so please do… I want more than the same 50 people entering folks… I love you all, but I have lots of your addresses memorized now… I want to see some new faces around these parts. I want to be able to google Lilypunkk and see a ton of responses. Let’s make Lilypunkk go viral, or at the very least trend on Twitter.. I have no hopes of breaking blogger but… you know… you can try to break blogger… there are 10,000 possibilities, after all. 😉
Speaking of links, don’t forget to check out these other dealings of mine while you are at it.
THE GOLDEN LILY REVIEW
YA GIVEAWAY – APRIL 2012 EDITION
Also, I will soon be changing format here and as a result I will not be using google blogger for very much longer. This means my blog will not update automatically to your google feed. If you would still like to receive updates when the blog is updated please follow by email to the right and up (where it says “follow by email”, yo!). That seems to be the best option for following in the future.
Thanks again for reading (and entering). And don’t forget to watch in the future for more giveaways (I have lots of books to giveaway).
Right all, without any further adieu… Lilypunkk launch!
