The Epic Giveway of Epic Epicness!!!!!!

As I mentioned yesterday, to celebrate our epic WriteOnCon announcement (for details, check here) all day today and tomorrow on the WriteOnCon website we're giving away some truly ASTOUNDING prizes courtesy of The Elevensies. Critiques. ARCs. Swag. You guys do NOT want to miss out.

Posts go live every hour, so make sure you keep checking back so you get a chance to enter for every prize. 

But, we decided that still wasn't EPIC enough. So all of the WriteOnCon Founders are also holding contests on our blogs, with some seriously awesome prizes. Make sure you check out the others:

And my blog is no exception. Now, I'd planned to use these prizes for the Mega-Epic-Contest-Of-Awesome, Part Two. But I'm happy to use them to promote WriteOnCon. Today I’m giving away a plethora of signed books--some seriously sought after ones too!

Up for grabs is....

THE LIGHTNING THIEF--SIGNED BY RICK RIORDAN (PAPERBACK)






THE ALCHEMIST--SIGNED BY MICHAEL SCOTT (PAPERBACK)







MISTBORN--SIGNED BY BRANDON SANDERSON (PAPERBACK)






THE NAME OF THE WIND--SIGNED BY PATRICK ROTHFUSS (PAPERBACK)





LEVIATHAN--SIGNED BY SCOTT WESTERFELD (HARDCOVER)




Five prizes! Five winners!! And yeah--I'll admit--most of them I don't want to part with, but I will--for YOU guys. But because this contest is part of The Epic Giveaway of Epic Epicness, it works a tiny bit different, so make sure you read the rules carefully.

How to enter:

CONTEST NOW CLOSED--thank you for entering!

    Shannon, I feel sad that I can't afford to donate at this time. You and your fellow bloggers have been very generous and I feel a little like a pinchpenny--but my funds really aren't that great. One day I hope to get another chance to "pay it forward" to you.

    As always, thank you for being epic! ;-)

  3. Thanks for the awesome contest. My daughter will be SO happy if I win the Rick Riordan book. She's read those books so many times.

    Don't feel bad at all about asking for the donations. We all want to help.

  34. Wow. All of these contests look absolutely wonderful, and I don't know how you managed to convince yourself to give away those signed copies. I don't think I would ever have the heart to do that, but I'm sure that all of us that are entering are really grateful.

    I really wish I could donate, but my parents won't let me. I'll just continue begging though, so hopefully one day. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. wow -- very nice, I am impressed! I would have a hell of a time parting with any of those. I had a Patrick Rothfuss but I used it as a prize for the charity event I held -- Great work!
