It Begins September 1st!!!

Photobucket



I know you've all been waiting eagerly for my next giveaway announcement. So, here it is!

I'M GIVING AWAY OVER 30 B00KS IN 30 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My blog hit over 30,000 hits way back in August, so to celebrate, I'm thanking YOU, my readers, for being faithful to me over the past 18 months:-)

Here's how it is going to work:

1) Take my logo above and link it back to this post on YOUR blog, then leave me a comment with the post link in it (no link, no entry). THAT ALONE enters you for a $30.00 gift certificate TO ANY BOOKSTORE OF YOUR CHOICE to be awarded on September 30, 2008 to those who promote this giveaway! (LIMITED TO US ONLY--MAYBE CANADA!)

2) Stop by every day for a NEW BOOK GIVEAWAY. Drawings will be held every day--one book=one winner EVERY DAY. YOU MUST LEAVE ME CONTACT INFORMATION TO BE ENTERED (no contact info, no entry). LIMITED TO US AND CANADA ONLY (sorry, but can't afford the international postage:-(...really, really sorry)

3) On September 30, I will finish the giveaway with AT LEAST one finally HUGE book giveaway...BUT, if my blog hits over 30,000 by then, I will ADD ONE BOOK PER 1,000 HITS....SO THE SKY'S THE LIMIT ON THAT BABY!!!

4) Final drawing will be held October 1st for that GRAND GIVEAWAY.

5) Check back to see if you've won! Winners will be announced only, not emailed (are you KIDDING ME??). Click the links to the list of winners as posted in the sidebar.

6) Last, but not least, you may only win ONE DRAWING PER WEEK to keep things fair. So, enter all you want to win...just know that you can only win once a week.

Clear on the rules? If not, email me.

The fun begins SEPTEMBER 1st! Spread the word, and you could win a $30.00 GIFT CERTIFICATE for October reading fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ALL RULES MUST BE FOLLOWED AS EXPLAINED IN THIS POST. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.

Happy Reading!

Deena

I posted the link to your giveaway in my book blog's sidebar--that way it stays where it is instead of moving down the list when other posts come along.

Cool giveaway. I like that idea. I think I'll borrow this idea if you don't mind.

Got your button here: http://www.mommysfunbooks.com/

Button's up with a short blurb. I didn't make it a "post" per se but rather a "gadget" so it will stay front and center until I delete the gadget from my blog.
