Edit: This giveaway is now closed. I will announce the winner tomorrow morning!
Today I turned 25 years old. I knew I would be working all day, so I decided to celebrate by hosting my first ever blog giveaway.
I tried especially hard to craft a package that would be interesting to everyone who reads my blog, whether they are young or old, male or female.
(I put the items on my head in a sad attempt to make the picture less boring.)
If you win the giveaway, you will receive…
1. A signed copy of my book, “Emily.”
2. A green pottery mug so that you can sip tasty beverages while reading good books.
3. The book “Paris Underground” by Etta Shiber.
…never heard of it? Neither had I, until I randomly pulled it off of our bookshelf and started reading it. I was immediately FASCINATED.
Basically, it is a true story about two middle-aged ladies who smuggled British soldiers out of Paris during WWII. It is equal parts funny and frightening and historical and enlightening.
Turns out it came into our household from Ben’s girlfriend Amanda, who gave it to Ben for Christmas. So far me, my mom, and my 98-year-old grandfather have all read it. None of us could put it down.
That’s why I bought a second copy for a blog giveaway. I figured it was a book that everyone would like.
4. Bonus gift! I’ll write you a short story in which you will be a primary character.
To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment on this blog post stating a random fact about yourself. If you win, I’ll use that fact in your story. (If you can’t think of anything to say, just make up a random fact. It will make your story more interesting)
Oh, and if you share this on Facebook or Twitter I’ll give you an extra entry. Or two extra entries, if you share on both. But PLEASE tell me in your comment if you shared it, because I’ll too lazy to go track it down. 🙂
The giveaway ends Sunday July 12 at midnight. Check back in a week to see if you’re a winner.
Okay, I’m just gonna say, doing a giveaway makes me feel like one of “those bloggers” who are more concerned about branding and traffic than anything else. Please know that was not my intention at all. Honestly, I am so thankful to all you loyal readers who keep coming back to my little blog. I stopped blogging for an ENTIRE YEAR, and you all came back. You are such a blessing to me, and I wanted to do a giveaway for you. I tried to specifically pick things that my readers would like.
Comment! Win! Enjoy!
P.S. I will ship anywhere in the world. So if you are my one reader from Finland, or the people from Columbia that sometimes show up, please enter!
