Rockin POSSESSION to the Top with a Bloghop and Contest

“What?” you ask. “You’re doing another POSSESSION contest? Seriously, Nichole. It’s almost like you’re obsessed with this book.”

(You can read more of what I thought about it here.)

Dudes, I know. But really, this is a phenomenal book, written by a completely phenomenal author and people, the day is coming. POSSESSION IS ALMOST HERE!

*cheers and dances in excitement*

The blogosphere is a buzz. In a totally good way. You DO NOT WANT TO MISS OUT. This is your chance to participate in the fun and win signed copies of POSSESSION along with other wicked-cool prizes.

Ali, Windy and I are hosting this particular activity, and it has two parts:

PART ONE: The Bloghop

Sign up today, or any day between now and June 7th, on any of our blogs. On June 7th, Possession’s birthday, write a post on your blog about a time when you broke the rules.

Three lucky winners will win a signed hard-cover copy of POSSESSION. (Can you say shiny?)

PART TWO: The Pre-order

Anyone who pre-orders a copy of POSSESSION between now and June 7th, will be entered in a drawing to win a prize of your choice, but get this: they all are your own personal Elana-time! (Ridiculous, I tell you. Is that not the coolest prize ever?) You’ll choose a query critique, OR an online or Skype talk with Elana!

To enter, send a copy of your receipt of purchase to me, Ali or Windy no later than June 7th. (writenichole @ gmail . com)

All winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 8th.

**UPDATE: The deadline on the Elana-time portion of this contest has been extended to accommodate those who are purchasing their books at actual bookstores. (We *heart* bookstores.) Send in your proof of purchase from ANY store (online or physical) by no later than noon on JUNE 16th. Elana will announce the winner during her virtual launch party during her online chat. (Also, I will post the name here.)**

So there you have it—yet another frawesome contest. But dudes, there is a point to this, so maybe you could help us out? Advertise these contests on your blogs, Facebook,Twitter, linkdIn, Goodreads, and everywhere else. Rent a billboard, mention it on the radio, have it written in the sky, etc. With a little help from our online friends, we have the power to make POSSESSION debut on the New York Times Bestseller list.

Sign up here:



Let’s rock this thing.

Hurray hurray! I so want to be part of celebrating Elana's book release day!!! I'm in!! What a fabulous way to celebrate!

I was going to get my book at Elana's book signing in my city on the 8th. I can have them set my book aside for the event, but they don't have me buy the book until the event.

Suggestions?

Nichole Giles said...

Donna, that is a very good question, and a great point. Everyone stay tuned for an update on this development, as we'd love to have everyone who buys a book eligible to win--even those who purchase books at bookstores. (Well, duh!!)

Angie said...

Yeah for Elana. I'm really excited to read this book too!

Theresa Milstein said...

I enjoyed Elana's book, reading it in a day or two.

On launch day, I'm posting an interview with Elana with questions from commenters. But I'll be sure to check out the Bloghop.

I'm so excited for Elana. But mostly for myself because I'll FINALLY GET TO READ IT!!!
