Horrifically Good Swagggggg!
After a long swag silence, I am finally ready to post my newest contest! WOOT!
But first, I want to share some very good Prophecy news; Prophecy of the Sisters was chosen as one of Booklist’s 2009 Top 10 First Novels for Youth! I’m incredibly honored, because the ALA and Booklist magazine does so much to advocate reading for so many people. A huge thank you to the ALA and the reviewers at Booklist for believing in my work. It really means so much to me.
So, by now you probably know how much I love to give stuff away. I do it in real life, too. Shopping for others is one of my very favorite things to do! You are no exception, online peeps, and because my international readers have made Prophecy such a huge success in their respective countries, I’m opening the contest to international entrants! You are all so loyal and wonderful, it hardly seems fair to leave you out of the fun, so just consider it my own personal thank you for spreading the word about Prophecy all over the world. Mwah!
Now you guys all know I give good swag, but this is truly epic swag. In honor of Halloween, it’s horror-themed, so prepare to be scaaaaared. Okay, not really. But the awesomeness includes;
A red rose t-shirt
A lock and key necklace
A set of three pairs of earrings, including my beloved red rose
Gothic fishnet gloves
A black-and-red skinny tie
Black metallic nail polish
A flocked velvet notebook
Comb-in temporary hair dye in Blood Red (eeek!)
A $25 Hot Topic gift card
A $15 iTunes gift card
A signed Prophecy locker poster
Prophecy locker magnet
Scented rose pin
Limited edition Prophecy candy tin
Double DVD Underworld/Underworld Evolution
Double DVD 28 Days Later/28 Weeks Later
And in honor of the month of horror, three truly creepy books;
Signed hardcover, Prophecy of the Sisters
Hardcover, The Hollow by Jessica Verday
Hardcover, Bad Girls Don’t Die by Katie Alender
Was I right, or was I right? Epically good swag, yes? I haven’t had a chance to read either Bad Girls Don’t Die or The Hollow, but I’ve heard REALLY good things about them. Which is why I chose them for this Horrifically Epic Swag Bag!
Okay, here’s how it works! You get one entry for each of the following;
+1 Tell me what supernatural phenomena scares you the most
+1 Link to this contest on your blog
+1 Post a bulletin or update linking to the contest on your Facebook or Myspace page (limit one point for this one, people!)
+1 for becoming a Fan of the Prophecy of the Sisters Fan Page on Facebook
+1 for “Suggesting” the Facebook Prophecy Fan Page to your Facebook friends
+1 Tweet the link! (Ditto above about one point limit)
That’s SIX potential entries! And even if some of this stuff isn’t normally your thing, the holidays are right around the corner, and you can always use your winnings to get a jump on your holiday gift-giving list…
Contest ends Sunday, October 25 at midnight. Winner will be chosen by random number generator, and I’ll do my best to get everything to the winner by Halloween (domestic shipping only. will take a bit longer if we have an international winner).
Oh! And I PROMISE I’m working on the tour post. Uploading pictures, gathering them from the many people who took them, and backtracking enough to remember the 16 days that was a blur a lot of the time isn’t easy, but I WILL get you a tour post WITH pics very, very SOON!
ETA: I can’t BELIEVE I forgot to upload my pics of this swag! Situation remedied!
Also, if we get an international winner who would prefer an Amazon gift certificate over the books (because they’re US editions), I’m happy to substitute the books for a $50 gift certificate (the approximate value of the three hardcovers). If this happens, I’ll have the RNG choose three runners-up and give away the three books separately.
