My First Ever Contest :: Fade by Lisa McMann

1st :: I sincerely hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I sure did. It was my best one in a loooong time. I also hope everyone was safe, and will keep being safe on into the New Year. You know how people get this time of year.

2nd :: I have a MAJOR In My Mailbox to do tomorrow, lol. Loads of books in for me since my last IMM, and most came this past week! Yay!

3rd :: It's time for my official contest annoucement. It's my first ever contest, and I hope it does somewhat good. Lol.

Here's the deal.

The contest starts today, Dec. 26th 2009. You will enter to get a chance to be the ONE person to win ONE copy of Fade by Lisa McMann. This copy of Fade is brand new! I haven't read it, opened it or anything.

Can't you smell it now? The clean, crisp, untouched pages? *sighs dreamily*

Anywho, the contest will end one month from now, Jan. 26th 2010. Just TWO weeks before the third book in the series, Gone, comes out. I will announce the winner at least two days after the contest is over. So check your e-mails and the blog around Jan. 28th or so.

Now, there's more.

If, by chance, I manage to get 100 followers by Jan. 26th, the winner of Fade will also get a copy of Gone when it comes out. If I get 150 followers by Feb, 9th -the release date of Gone- one more person will win the sencond copy of Gone.

So, get 100 followers by Jan 26th, and one lucky winner gets Fade AND Gone. Get 150 by Feb. 9th, one lucky winner will a copy of Gone.

Sound good?

Now, let me make sure you get this.

If I don't have 100 followers by Jan. 26th, the winner of Fade won't win Gone, and the 2nd copy won't be up for grabs. :( BUT if I do get 100 by the 16th, and I get 150 by Feb. 9th I will choose one person from my 150 followers and give them Gone. BUT if I don't have 150 by that day, no one will get the 2nd copy. :(
And remember, I have to wait until Gone comes out to send it to you. So to the future winner of Gone, you'll have to wait at least two weeks for you copy of Gone.

Anywho, back to the Fade contest. It starts now, and it ends January 26th. Look below to see how to enter this contest.
