Junot Diaz giveaway!

I posted the transcript of my interview with Junot Diaz a few days ago, and I did say that you guys should look out for a possible giveaway. And since I almost always keep my word, here it is!

Two copies, one of which is mine. The other could be yours! Yes, yours!

My copy

As has become a sort of tradition on these here blog, I took two copies of Junot Diaz’ “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao” and had both of them signed. One to keep, and one to give away.

The rules are the same, as always, so I will just copy-paste it because I am a lazy, lazy man.

“What do you guys have to do then? Since this is my first second third time doing this sort of thing, I thought it would be wise to pattern the process after young adult author Michelle Zink‘s own contest rules.

All you guys have to do is to post a link to this post on your preferred social network, then leave a comment on this very same post with a link to your post featuring the link. I sincerely hope that that horrible string of words has not discouraged you guys from joining yet. Doing so will get you ONE entry.

Is this YOUR copy?

However, if you want a bigger chance at winning, you get ONE more entry for every person that you convince to follow me on Twitter (@tristantrakand) or read this blog. The person you refer also gets ONE entry, just as long as they tell me on Twitter or in the comments section of this post who referred them.

Your comment tallying the number of entries you have should look like this:

  • Posted link (on preferred social network) = 1 entry
  • Referred (x) number of people = (x) entry/entries

Unfortunately, this contest is only for readers here in the Philippines, as I can’t yet afford to ship stuff halfway around the world. Third World living, y’all!”

Contest runs from today, November 27, 2011 until December 15, 2011. Winners will be announced around December 19! Please somebody join this contest. Good luck!

Be Sociable, Share!

  1. Oh, you were there? I was there too! Junot is a great, sincere talker. I had my mass market copy back from college signed. I also bought a copy of Drown because it might take yeeaaars before he produces another novel.

    If you don’t mind, please add extra points for Trisha because I stumbled to this blog through her Facebook post. 😀
