Pesky Giveaway Winners

May 10, 2012 at 1:55 pm (Events) ()

So I tried my very first giveaway in April.  An Elizabeth George book that I had on hand, with plans of doing on a month for the rest of the year as I have copies of things that indie authors have sent me and I’d like to share the love, as well as books my brother-in-law had brand new duplicates of and offered them up to me as blog giveaway prizes.

But the winner of my very first giveaway hasn’t given me her address.  I have no way of getting her prize to her.

How do you handle giveaways?  When do I stop holding out for the original winner and pick a new one? She said in her entry that she followed my blog and my twitter, so in theory she should have got the announcement that she won (as well as the pleas to email me with her address).

Looks like a great read!  Thanks for the chance!


Looks like you’ll get to enjoy that book!  I know I promised a Scentsy Scent Circle, would you be interested in an upgrade to a Room Spray? I have those on hand.  Also, let me know what kind of scents you enjoy… fall or spring.

My Very First Giveaway!

April 14, 2012 at 8:11 pm (Events, Reviews) (, , , , , , )

I received a copy of Elizabeth George’s Believing the Lie in December 2011 from Dutton Books.  Its a beautiful hard back, released to the public January 2012.  It has been read twice, but is in excellent condition, and although I am a horder at heart and would like to hold onto and cherish every book I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading, I decided I would use this copy to host my first giveaway.  (Get my hands dirty with all this fabulous giveaway excitement, so to speak.)

The conditions of this giveaway are that you (in good faith and on scout’s honor) follow me on twitter, follow my blog, and leave a comment on this post that includes your email address.  If you don’t leave your email address I will have no way of contacting you if you win!

This book is the latest in the Inspector Lynley series, but you don’t have to have read previous books in the series to get into the story, George tells you all you need to know.  It is the first book in the series that I have read, and I plan to read more once I am done with my Agatha Christie Crime Collection marathon.  Believing the Lie follows the investigation of a supposed drowning on a family estate of a clan full of secrets and shocking lies.  George’s character development skills are surprisingly detailed and thorough for this genre, and its a good book for general fiction lovers to read if they want to dip their toes in the mystery section for a few days.  The 608 pages goes fast.

Along with this book, I will ship a small Scentsy surprise in the form of a Scent Circle.  If you don’t know what that is, check out my website here, and fall in love:  Winner will be announced and contacted on April 30th.  Let the comments, twittering, and following begin!
