Mega-Awesome, Totally Fabulous, I *Heart* Followers Contest (Part 1)

I’m about to post a contest or two. Or three. Can’t decide. But I have some awesome stuff to give away. So raise your hand if you would like to win some free stuff. (Signed by the authors—or in the case of MOCKING JAY, stamped, but still very cool.)

Wait. I can’t see your raised hand through the computer. Hm. What to do?

Got it! (To see this week's prize, keep reading.)

Required:

First, become a follower (see the top portion of my sidebar to the right of your screen). Considering that this contest is a Follower appreciation event, I think it’s fair to require everyone who wants to enter to be one of those followers I’m appreciating, right? Right. Okay.

Optional:

Next, leave a comment on any of my many random and amazing (or not-so-amazing) posts. I don’t care which one. You don’t even have to read it, per-se. Just click on the comment section and say hi, and I’ll be happy. (+1)

Third, Facebook (+1), tweet (+1), or blog (+1) this contest so all your friends can enter too. It’s not required, but if you do it just to be nice, I’ll give you an extra entry for each thing. (This is on the honor system, but if you tweet, include me @nicholegiles, and I’ll come follow you. Same with FB. We can be friends!)

Required:

After all that, fill out this form. This is a requirement. Don’t worry, it’s easy.

See, the thing is, if you don’t fill it out, your name won’t be on the spreadsheet from which the names will be randomly selected (using a random generator). That is a definite problem when it comes to you wanting to win. But I promise to never use the information for anything other than this contest. Deal? Great.

I’m going to start the fun by giving away an autographed copy of LEVIATHAN by Scott Westerfeld. The contest starts right now, and will run until midnight on Friday, November 19th, and then on Monday the 22nd, I’ll post the winner and the next contest. (**US shipping only.)

Okay. Good luck! Ready? Set? Go!

I never do promo sorts of tweets but for this I'm making an exception! I'd love to win.

Hi. I did read the post. Heehee. I've already have and have read Mockingjay and Leviathan and Behemoth, for that matter. So I guess you really don't need to put me in the drawing. I was on autopilot with the form.

I loved the UGLIES series. LEVIATHAN looks drool-worthy too. Thank for hosting the contest! I'm not much of a blogger/tweeter/fber, but I do follow!

Awesome giveaway, Nicole!

How as I not a follower before?

That is hereby fixed. Great giveaway. :)

Rachelle said...

What a great contest! I entered, fingers crossed.

Shari said...

I so thought I was already a follower, but I wasn't! Where have I been? Well, good news. I am now! Love your giveaway.

Jill Ann said...

Say what?! Okay, Nichole. I'll follow you, but I refuse to stalk you. That's just obsessive. ;)

Renae W. Mackley said...

I would love to follow the wonderful Nichole Giles who has done so much for AI! Can't wait to meet you in person.

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

I have signed copy of Behemoth, but only have Leviathan as e-book. A signed copy would be awesome!

Wendy Swore said...

Oh! I thought I did this already . Fun stuff Nichole! Count me in. :)

T.J. said...

Awesome contest. I'm slow getting to blogs this month.

Jenn Wilks said...

I *heart* Scott Westerfeld! I'm really sad I missed seeing him when he came to Provo. Winning this awesome signed book might sort of kind of make up for it, though, a little bit. :o)
