Signed Copy of Kristen Cashore's "Graceling"

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

*The contest is now closed.
Week Four means Giveaway Week! I'm giving away a signed, hardcover edition of Graceling by Kristen Cashore (think of it as an early Christmas Present!) for FREE.

To enter, you need points. The more points you have, the better your chances of winning. To get points, do the following:

1 pt for following my blog (if you're already a follower, that counts! Just let me know)
1 pt for following me on twitter (if you already follow me, leave me your twitter name)
1 pt for tweeting about the contest (give me the link)
1 pt for following me on facebook
1 pt for leaving a link to this contest on your facebook newsfeed (give me the link)
1 pt for becoming a goodreads friend (make sure I know your goodreads name)
2 pts for blogging about this contest (leave me the link and I'll brag about ya!)

*To find me on twitter, facebook, and goodreads, click on the highlighted links above. OR EVEN EASIER, CLICK ON THE LINKS ON THE RIGHT SIDE-----> (YOU MAY HAVE TO SCROLL DOWN).
That's 8 total points. Easy peasy. The more points you get, the higher your chances of winning. If you already follow me on any of these, let me know . . . cause that counts!

Make sure you add up all your points, cause I'm a writer--meaning I suck at math.

You have until November 29th! I'll announce the winner Nov 30th.

This contest is only open to the US & Canada--unless you want to pay your own postage.

    Hi Amber, I am Tyler Thornock's wife. He told me someone he went to high school is having a book published and I jumped on it! I love to read and am always looking for something new. Can't wait to read your book in September!
    I can't even tell you how excited I am to see this giveaway! I read Graceling just two weeks ago and it easily made my top 10. I loved it! I just got her second book, Fire, but haven't read it yet.

  1. 1 point - I follow your blog

    1 point - I follow you on Twitter (LadyGlamis)

    1 point - I tweeted (hehe) your contest. I have NO idea how to include a link of a Tweet...but if you check my LadyGlamis Twitter profile it's on there today (10-27-10)

    1 point - I follow you on Facebook

    1 point - I left a link to this contest on my newsfeed here: Okay, once again I'm dumb and can't link to JUST that do I do that? I posted it today on my newsfeed 10-27-10

    1 point - I'm your friend on Goodreads - and why OH WHY have you not added CINDERS to your to-read pile? I'm shocked.

    I will blog about this if I don't forget. I'll let you know.

  1. Note to all: I have included the links for my facebook, twitter, and blogger accounts in the points section. Just look for the underlines links. ;)

    Also, make sure you add up all your points and total them for me. If not, I may screw it up, and we don't want that, now do we?

    Camille: Thanks for finding me! You'll be happy to know that your hubby was one of the nicest guys, from grade school all through high school. You picked 'em good, sister. But you never said how many points you have????

    Michelle: So that's 5, let me know if you get anymore? Thanks girl! And I can't believe I haven't added Cinders. I'll fix that.

    Kristen: I should give you a point for having the same name as the author . . . but I can't. Cause the others would kill me. Found you on Twitter, so follow me back and we'll be good. Did you click on the links for goodreads and twitter?

    Theresa: That's 5. You go, girl!

  1. Also, you can click on the links on the right of the post. :)

  1. Okay, I blogged, too!

    That makes 7 points. Yay! This makes me wonder how many great books you have up your sleeve. :)
