Please note: the giveaway is now closed. Winner will be announced shortly.
It’s almost here. My upcoming book, Something About You, releases on March 2nd. So I think it’s time to celebrate–with all of you.
I’m going to give away a grand prize of a $100 gift card to Amazon, Borders, or Barnes & Noble (at the winner’s choosing). I’m also going to give away second and third prizes of a signed copy of Something About You. What do you have to do to enter, you ask? It’s simple: spread the word about Something About You. Here are the details:
1. Post somewhere letting people know about the upcoming release of Something About You. Anywhere. (I’m not fussy.) You can talk about the book on your blog, your website, on Facebook, heck, even Twitter (my Twitter name is @juljames, for those of you who want to get extra-super bonus points for including that). Don’t have a blog? Don’t tweet? No problem–you can post a comment on somebody else’s website or blog, or even on a message board.
2. Then, come back here and comment below with a link to wherever you’ve posted your qualifying blog/post/comment. This is important, as your comment below is your entry in the giveaway.
3. Please make sure your link works! If I can’t confirm you that you’ve posted/commented/blogged/whatever-ed about the book, you won’t be entered in the giveaway.
4. To qualify, your blog/comment must be new (meaning it must be posted starting February 1st).
5. For those of you who want to include details about Something About You in your post, the back cover copy and excerpt can be found here. Or if you want to get really fancy, Lea over at Closet Writer designed a wonderful countdown Sprout that you can use.
6. While I would love for each of you to spread the word about the release of Something About You far and wide with numerous posts, blogs, etc., in order to give everyone who promotes my book in some way an equal chance to win, I am limiting the giveaway to one entry per person.
7. The contest is open until 10pm CST on February 28, 2010. Everyone who correctly enters will be in the running for the $100 dollar gift card and the second and third prizes of a signed book. Authors are eligible to win as well. Winners will be chosen at random from among eligible entries. The drawing will occur on March 1st.
Thanks, everyone, for helping me celebrate the upcoming release of Something About You!
