Only a Novel Giveaway

The time is now!  The day is here!
~Les Miserables


I've never hosted a giveaway before, so bear with me, my dear patient readers! This is new and uncharted territory here.

I'm giving away one free copy of my book Only a Novel, autographed with a personal message.  (Did anyone else pronounce that word as "author-graphed" when they were little?  No?  Okay, never mind.)

Rules for entering:

For One Entry...
~Simply leave a comment stating that you publicly follow my blog.  (Um, and the statement has to be true. In other words, you have to be a public follower of my blog.)   Please leave your e-mail address as well so I can contact you if you win.  If you don't wish to have your e-mail displayed publicly, just leave a separate comment with your address (in addition to your entry comments).  I will delete the comment with your e-mail address after I've noted it and it will not be considered an entry.  Thanks!

For Additional Entries...
~Put the OAN Giveaway button on your blog (+1 entry)
~Write a (public) blog post announcing this giveaway and leave the link in a comment (+2 entries)

Maximum number of entries per person: 4.




The giveaway closes on Saturday, July 7th.  I will randomly select one winner to be announced on Monday, July 9th.

*Note: I'm very sorry, but this giveaway is open to readers in the U.S. and Canada only.*

Okay, dearling, you don't need to publish this if you don't want to, but you said that the giveaway closes on Saturday, July 7th and the winner will be announced Monday, July 7th. Maybe the Monday you mean is actually the 9th?

Oh, and, just for clarification, I am *not* entering the giveaway. I don't think I can wait that long. So I won't. :D

yes, this is my third comment, and yes, I am hoping that this will pay off.

I would comment indefinitely, but (as my previous two have been "very dull indeed") I recall the words of emma to miss bates: "Ah! ma'am, but there may be a difficulty. pardon me, but you will be limited as to number -- only three at once."
or four, in this case. :)

I have only just started reading your blog two weeks ago and love it. I don't normally enter drawings like this, but if your book is anything like your blog, I would love to read it an am willing to take a chance. If I had an up and running blog, I would spread the word...but since I don't yet, that is out of the question. Congratulations on such a marvelous accomplishment. I wish you every happiness.

Molly Gibson

P.s. I wish to remain anonymous at this time, but since I visit your blog every day, I will know who won when the time comes. m.g.

Miss Dashwood said...

Elizabeth Rose,
Thanks for your comments! I checked my spam folder and nothing showed up-- I'm not sure why your comments didn't go through earlier but they're here now so it's all good. :)

Miss Dashwood said...

Molly Gibson,
Thanks for your comment! In order to enter you in the drawing, I will need your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win. So if you could comment again with your e-mail (I won't publish the comment if you don't want me to) then I can enter you in the drawing. Thanks!

Yikes, SORRY! I only just saw that the giveaway was open to US and Canada! I live in Australia. Whoops. SO SORRY AGAIN! (Please don't post my comments!)
I was thinking of putting your button on my blog though, and have sent you an invite to it, so you can approve if you like, or not. THanks and sorry!

Anonymous said...

Okay, so I posted about it AND put your button up. Does that qualify for my last three entries? (One for the button and two for the blog post?)

Yikes! I do follow your blog, Miss Dashwood, but this book giveaway is taking things to new levels. I guess I am a little late with my entry, for I had to scroll down for quite a while before I could actually post this comment. But, anywho, as Kiri Liz would say, this IS an entry, and my email is kj.bearit@gmail.com. Thanks for your time.

K. Barrett said...

Here is the link to my post about your new novel. I am so happy for you, and if this seems a little behind the masses, we were redoing our kitchen counters, and that is a bit time-consuming. My deepest felicitations on your success.
