In case you’re one of those people who skip over post titles, I’ve got an announcement for you.
IT’S MY WEBSITE’S ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!
One year ago, on September 1st, this site went live (and everything crashed, as websites like to do) and I started screaming internally. Now, I have 1,585 comments and this post is my 76th. Those are both huge numbers, and I’m still screaming internally. 😯
I want to say a huge thanks to YOU. Yes, you! Even if you’ve never been on my blog until this moment, or you’re only here for the giveaway. I’m so blessed by all of you. You make me smile, you make me laugh, you brighten my day with emails and comments and little gifts. Thank you so, so much. I wish I could give each of you a giant hug.
I’ve been in the mood for a giveaway since June, but I’ve been putting it off until I had a good reason. TODAY IS THE GOOD REASON! I’m suuuper excited about this giveaway, because giving things away is really fun, and the prizes are totally awesome. (I think they are, anyway.)
First of all: this giveaway is open internationally! Doesn’t matter if you’re in Scotland, Antarctica, or even Queensland, I will still post the prize to you. 😉
There are two prizes here, so there will be TWO WINNERS.
Prize #1: (pictured above) the winner’s choice of ONE book (because I only have so much money), choosing between Cinder, A Time to Die, and Orphan’s Song. AND an amazing glow-in-the-dark pendant necklace, made by Zachery Seibel-Barnes!
If the winner owns all three of the bookish options, I can mail a different book of their choice depending on the price. And the pendant is perfect for girls and guys because it’s totally awesome, so if you’re a guy, don’t make the ‘necklace’ word stop you from entering. 😛
*Note that Orphan’s Song will be in the new edition (because the cover looks more gorgeous), not the first edition as pictured.
Prize #2: (pictured below) Two lovely notebooks and a ‘Writing Heroes ♦ Writing Hope’ pen. I was actually so ridiculously excited for the pen that I ordered two so I could keep one for myself. XD
Unfortunately, even though I’ve been planning this giveaway for several months, I was not quite organised enough and the pen has not yet arrived in my mailbox. I went out this morning to check, just in time to see the postman drive past with nothing for me. 😢 So below is a screenshot from when I was designing it, and a photo of the notebooks.
All the options for entering are below (If you’re reading this in the email, you’ll have to click through to the post for this part), so go forth and enter!
You’ll notice that there are ‘fun facts’ near the bottom. All the answers of these can be found somewhere on my blog, and I also mentioned one answer in a recent newsletter. You’ll need ninja skills for that one, mwhaha. 😏
Thank you again for all being so amazing. I’m looking forward to many more years of writing and bookish craziness!
