I can’t believe I’ve reached 400 followers! When I first started this blog, I honestly didn’t know if anyone would even read it. Now I have people who visit regularly, leave the sweetest comments, and share bits of their lives with me. I feel so blessed. :-)
I’m so incredibly grateful for my followers. You guys encourage me to keep reading, keep writing, and keep posting. I’ve also had such overwhelming support from people when it comes to my upcoming debut novel, Blue Sky Days (yeah, ok, that was a little bit of a plug lol), and I wanted to express my gratitude in some small way. Also, my 28th birthday is coming up on December 16th, so I thought I’d celebrate that with you guys, too! What birthday party is complete without favors, right? ;-)
This giveaway will run from today (November 16th) until my birthday on December 16th. I’m letting it run so long because I’m hoping to collect more swag and have an extra winner or two.
What you can win:
A book of your choice from the selection below. I’ve got a really random selection of books here. Some are old favorites, some are newer favorites, some are books on my TBR pile or wish list, and I threw in a couple of new-ish releases for good measure. They’re mostly YA, but I added a few adult books so there would hopefully be something for everyone.
Swag! I’ve been very slowly collecting swag over the last couple months. A few highlights include a signed Faerie Ring bookmark from Kiki Hamilton, signed Being Human bookmarks from Patricia Lynne, signed Flame of Surrender bookmarks from Rhiannon Paille, The Rising Moon bookmark and pin from Nilsa Rodriguez, and a few other things. I’m also expecting a bit more swag in the mail, so I’ll update this as I include more goodies, and will hopefully have a picture to post by the end of the week. (If anyone has a bunch of extra swag they’d be interested in donating, or if any authors see this and would like to donate some swag, please let me know, I’d be super grateful! The more swag I have the more winners there will be.) Also, if I can get my bookmarks for Blue Sky Days ordered and delivered before the end of the giveaway, I'll include some of those, too! :-)
The only mandatory entry is that you must be a public GFC follower of the blog – after all, it is a follower appreciate giveaway! I’m adding in a ton of other things for those people who want a whole bunch of extra chances, but you don’t have to do any of them. I know these giveaways are often self-serving in a way for the hosts because you can gain extra entries by doing stuff for the host (as is the case with this giveaway, as you will see lol), but it gets you extra entries and you don’t have to do them if you don’t want to! If you do, it's win-win! ;-)
This giveaway is open internationally as long as The Book Depository ships to your country.
Thank you again to everyone who has been so wonderful and supportive over the last few months. The friendships I've made through the blogosphere mean more to me than you can imagine.
