In Which I Host My First Contest!


50 followers wOOt!

So, like I promised, a drawing to be had for a prize!

What prize, you ask? Why a Barnes and Noble gift card of course!

A $25 giftcard, which should be enough for you to purchase a hardcover if you so desire.
(family is exempt...)

The rules:

Are you currently a follower? (followers 1-50) 2 entries!
Are you a new follower? One entry!
Did you post this contest on your blog? (or Twitter, for those of you twitter minded folks...) One entry!

Please leave a comment with your total number of entries.

Deadline is by 5pm CST Friday, 02/12/10.

Results will be revealed on Monday 2/15/10.

Fun! Excitement! Drama...?

Vaccuum!

Falen said...

Ha! Listen, i'll put your name in, and if i draw it, i'll get you something. But not the giftcard.

Piedmont Writer said...

Three entries I believe. Yes, follower, and yes, I will post on my blog post-haste.

SonshineMusic said...

Whee! Congrats on 50 followers!

So I get 3 entries, cause I follow and I just posted on my blog :)

Patrick said...

Why'd I even become a follower if I'm exempt from the benefits it provides?!

Anne said...

LOL Packie and i are gonna mutiny!

That's right you put my name in (2 entries). And i'll TELL you what to get me if you draw my name.
I want that bunny eared hat
yes...yes...

Lynnette Labelle said...

Congrats! I'm already a follower, so I guess that means two entries (please). Sanks.

So far, I've only added you to my sidebar. I will try to blog about it, but will be difficult because of the scheduled blog posts this week. Hmmm, tried to tweet, but wasn't sure of your twitter name and wanted to attach it??

So, I guess only 1 entry at a this point for this lovely comment. Ha!

By the way, be sure to check my blog today ;)

Happy belated birthday, by the way! And congrats on your 50 followers!

Sara McClung ♥ said...

I'm a new follower I found you from Carol/Simon's contest. I am hopelessly in LOVE with your story for them. I am convinced that you might be one of the most clever story spinners EVER.

+1 for following
+1 (within about 5 minutes I will update today's post to add your contest!!)

Lost Wanderer said...

Congratulations for the followers :-)

Falen said...

Patrick - fine fine, you can be in the drawing and if you win i'll get you something else. but the giftcard will go to non family followers.

Anne - Bunny hat it is

Carolina - you get 2 for already being a follower so no worries!
Also, because i was mentioned and linked on your blog today (i'm freaking out a bit...) that counts.
I'll be by a bit later to comment on your blog - i may be intelligible...

Sara - (awesome name BTW ;D) thanks for stopping by! I guess my drawing began at a perfect time for anyone who follows Carol's or Simon's link.
And thanks for the love - i'm kind of freaking out (a bit) about placing in the contest...

Al said...

We don't have B&N here in Oz :(

Publish or Perish

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Congratulations!
2 entries

Teebore said...

Three for me. I'll add a post before Friday, when I'm done with this week's Lost post and my next long overdue X-Men post.

Since, like your esteemed siblings, I know you in the, like, "real" world, I'd almost feel bad if I won. But hey, $25 B&N bucks is $25 B&N bucks, and I can put it to good use!

Falen said...

Al - if you win, we can discuss a suitble prize for you, a book you want or something of value that = $25

Alex - thanks! i'm still a bit surprised by it myself

Teebore - yeah, but i haven't seen you in the real world in over 3 months, so maybe you're all hairy and gross now...

AchingHope said...

Whoo hoo! 50 followers!

And two entries for me. Yay!

(Oh, and I found you through SonshineMusic, who found you through Nikki's blog...)

Simon C. Larter said...

Follower. Hi. :)

I should have been a follower earlier, but I'm a procrastinator. I'm going to change all that tomorrow, though.

Falen said...

Aching Hope - thanks! And thanks for letting me know how you got here since i'm always really curious about that

Simon - no worries, i know you have a lot of blogs to follow. thanks so much for stopping by and also for the HUGE compliment of placing me in your contest.

Lisa and Laura said...

I came to visit from Carol's blog. I have to say, your vampire story was one of the most creative short stories I've ever read. I loved it!

And your profile rocks too.
