I know I said that I’d put this up yesterday afternoon, but my job got in the way and I basically just crashed on the floor when I got back home at around midnight. So apologies for that.
But here is what I was so excited about yesterday! As all of you guys know, I recently interviewed New York Times bestselling author Lauren Kate, and since I had an extra trade paperback of her latest book laying around anyway, I thought it would be nice to have it signed and given away to you guys!
Of course, since there’s only one book, I can’t just give it away willy-nilly. No, you guys have to do a little something-something if you want this in your hands.
What do you guys have to do then? Since this is my first 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.
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, July 30 to August 13, 8 p.m. Winners to the contest will be announced no later than midnight of August 15. Good luck!
