FINALLY--A KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES ARC CONTEST!!!!!!
So... Blogger--in ALL of it's awesomeness--decided to make my post for this magically disappear. (*grumbles inappropriate words*) BUT DON'T WORRY!!!! It does have a record of all of your comments and I'll be pasting all of them in as soon as this post goest live. Basically I'm rebuilding what I lost so everything will be okay!
But if you're worried, check back in about an hour and make sure your entry is there--and if not, enter again. SORRY!
**UPDATE**All comments SHOULD be in there now (and I was VERY careful to enter them in the same order.) So we should be back to where we started before blogger decided to be a pain. If you don't see yours, enter again. And if you haven't entered yet, new entries are totally still welcome!**
Okay, I'll confess--this post is both exciting AND terrifying. I've done a zillion ARC giveaways on my blog--but I've never done one for MY book! There's a surreal sort of giddy panic that goes along with that!
I mean ... the winners will be able to READ MY BOOK!!!!! I don't even know how to wrap my head around that!
But Shannon-Panicking aside, I've been promising an Epic ARC contest for a while and you guys have been wonderfully patient with me. So it's time to be a girl of my word. And I promised the contest would be EPIC, so I'm giving away not one--not two--but THREE ARCs of KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES.
Aren't they PRETTY?
I'll even sign and doodle in them if you want--'cause, yanno, that'll make them worth... well... nothing. BUT YOU CAN PRETEND THEY'RE WORTH SOMETHING. ;)
Here's how this works:
If you would like to enter, leave a comment on this post by 11:59 pm pacific time on Friday June 1st. I'll draw THREE random winners and post their names on Saturday, June 2nd. Winners will then have one week to contact me, and if I haven't heard from them by Saturday, June 9th I'll pick replacement winners.International entries welcome.
(And sorry, I won't be able to email the winners to let them know they won. Not only do I not have time to do that anymore, but I'll be out of town for BEA that week and with limited access to internet. So I *highly* recommend you follow my blog in some way/form so that you won't miss the "winners" post and lose your prize--but its up to you! That's not a requirement!)
That's it--that's all you have to do. I wanted to make the contest simple and easy without a lot of hoop jumping and plastering my cover all over avatars and whatnot (though I'm certainly not going to stop you from doing that) ;)
HOWEVER, I realize that some of you might be fairly excited about this prize (and if you are, have I told you lately that I love you?). In which case those people *might* want a way to get some extra entries and improve their chances. SO, I'll give one extra entry for any of the following:
+ 1 if you add KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES to your Goodreads lists
+ 1 if you add LET THE SKY FALL to your Goodreads lists
(poor LTSF gets sad when KEEPER gets all the attention, so you'd make it very happy)
+ 1 if you "like" KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES on Facebook
+ if you "like" my new Shannon Messenger Author page on Facebook
(even though that feels like a weird thing to ask people to do. Like me! Like me! *sigh*)
+ 1 if you tweet a link to this contest
+ 1 if you post a link on Facebook about this contest
So, if you did ALL of those things that would mean that you could have a maximum of 7 entries total (since you get one entry just for commenting). Just let me know what you did in your comment so I can tally your entries accordingly.
And... I think that's everything. But if I missed something, feel free to ask in the comments.
