50 Follower GIVEAWAY!


Welcome to my very first giveaway!

I’ve reached a couple big milestones for myself: my blog will be 3 months old on April 28 and I now have over 50 followers. I’ve enjoyed sharing my book reviews and ponderings with you all – blogging has been such great fun. And as I continue to find my spot in the blogosphere I want to continue to grow and reach new book lovers and followers. So the next step for me is my very first contest… Please help me reach my next goal of 100 followers.

For those that have been following my blog, you will know that I recently discovered the ACRO series by Sydney Croft (Larissa Ione and Stephanie Tyler). I am currently reading the 4th book in the series. The series focuses on a group of special agents with unique talents, for example talking to ghosts or controlling the weather. I blogged a while back that it’s like X-men for adults! These books are the perfect mix of romance, action, and hot smex. What makes these books truly special is the detail, time and effort spent not only on the primary story but on the side characters and sub-plots as well.

So to celebrate my first 3 months and my first 50 followers, I am going to give away a copy of the first ACRO book: Riding the Storm. You can read my review here.

The goal of my contest is to share a favorite book with you all. But I also want to increase my followers. So, if I reach my goal of 100 followers I will add a second great book to my giveaway… Atlantis Redeemed by Alyssa Day. Another fabulous book, and you can read my review here. But wait, there’s more… If I get 150 followers before the contest ends, Ivy from Book Reader Times will donate a wonderful surprise package!

Now: The Rules… 

  • You must be a follower of my blog. 
  • You must be 18-years or older. 
  • Contest is open internationally (anywhere The Book Depository delivers) 
  • Only one entry per follower 

To enter, please leave a comment below and include the following information:

  • Old (prior to contest) Blog follower: 2 points 
  • New Blog follower: 1 point 
  • Tweet about contest (leave link) : 1 point 
  • Put my giveaway button (grab on side bar) on your blog (leave blog link): 5 points 

Please add up your points – for a total of 8 points max.

Contest open until midnight EDT on Sunday May 16, 2010.

Winners will be announced on my blog the week after contest ends. Winners will have 72 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen.

Good luck to you all and thank you so much for sharing in my fun!

  17. I’m a loser & switched the points on old blog follower & tweeting…. but it still adds up to 8 points, so you got the point. Right? (it’s late. I’ll blame lack of sleep on my brain fart)

  18. Lynette says:

    8 Points for me. I have your button on my blog, I’m an old follower, and I tweeted about it! Enter me, I’m selective about the paranormal I read, but this series sounds awesome. I’d love a chance to win and review it!

    Thanks for doing this!

  19. Wow! I’m so happy for you, hon! And look at you doing this giveaway all like a pro 🙂
    Well, I love to be entered, of course, but the ARCO book I already have, so you better hit 100 or 150 followers ;D
