Fourth Wish Contest and More



Busy, busy, busy!  The Fourth Wish is on Kindle now and I'm holding a contest.  Winner will have a choice between the paperback or the Kindle version if he/she lives in the US; otherwise the winner gets a Kindle version, assuming he/she has a Kindle reader.

Here are the contest rules: The contest starts today and ends Friday, September 9th at midnight -- California time. You can get a point each time you:

     1. Comment on this post
     2. Tweet the contest and this site
     3. Mention it on FaceBook
     4. Mention it on your blog
     5. And, if you are a new visitor, following this site.
You can do the first four as many times as you want. (Well, please don't comment four times in a row, because that could look strange, as in "Here I am again." "And again." "And again.")

Whenever you do #2, #3, or #4, just let me know so I can give you your point. At the end of the contest I'll use random.org. to choose the winner.

There is also another contest you should know about:
David Powers King, who has one super blog -- both funny and extremely informative -- is having a contest where the winner can get one of three books.  That's right, three! They all look good, and I certainly put my dibs in for the one I would like to get. Hurry over there now and get in on this. The rules for his contest are in the post you'll find when you click here  .

Last, but not least, I want to pass on the Helping Hands Award to two very special blogging friends: Michelle Fayard, who clued me in about how to run a contest, and J. L. Campbell, who clued me in on delivering the Kindle version if that's what the winner wants (and whose own ebook I won in a similar contest.)  Thanks, Michelle and Joy.  No obligation goes with it except to pass it to those you feel have helped you. Meanwhile, anyone reading this post should hop on over to their blogs which are always full of good reads and reviews and through-provoking articles.
     
That's it for today.

Cool! Hey, I'd like to win a copy. Sign me up! Cool contest. I'll go for Kindle if I win, do not have space for print books.

J.L. Campbell said...

Thanks very much for the award! I'm sooo bad about passing them on, but will do the best I can as soon as I can. Gonna tweet the contest for you too.

If you haven't signed up for Rachel Harrie's Platform building campaign yet and you have the time for a bit of mix and mingle in the coming months, you should go check her out.

Elizabeth Varadan aka Mrs. Seraphina said...

Thanks, Robert & Joy, you are both entered. Joy thanks for the Platform Building tip. I'll check it out.

Rosi said...

It's a lovely book. I enjoyed it so much. If I win, I will donate my copy to my local library so lots of kids can read it.

Brooke Rousseau said...

Congrats and good luck with the Kindle version of Fourth Wish!

I'm working on getting my books on Kindle. It's taking longer than I'd hoped. Sigh.

Elizabeth Varadan aka Mrs. Seraphina said...

Hi, Rosi, what a lovely thing to do.

And Brooke, thanks for stopping by. I took a peek in your book, The King and the Calico . . . in Paris, and it looks utterly charming.

Donna K. Weaver said...

Contests can be so much fun!

Lauren F. Boyd said...

Hey, Elizabeth! Thanks so much for commenting on my blog! It's great to see you!

And many, many congrats on the release of your book! How exciting! Please enter me to win a paperback copy!

Thanks again, and keep up the good work writing!

Victoria Dixon said...

Oooh! Contests. :D I don't own a reader (yet), so I'd have to go for paperback. And thanks for the links and the visit! I will go tweet you right now. :D

Elizabeth Varadan aka Mrs. Seraphina said...

Hi, Donna, Lauren & Victoria. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. You are all duly recorded - twice for you, Victoria, and thanks for tweeting!

As for writing, Lauren, it feels so good to get back to it. I was a reader only, so to speak, for 5 or 6 weeks while my foot was healing. Now I'm up and about, and it really makes a difference to sit at the computer instead of balancing an iPod on my knee. :-)

Michelle Fayard said...

Congratulations, Mitty, on The Fourth Wish officially being on Kindle! I've tweeted and FB posted the good news not to enter the contest--because I already have a copy of this magical book--but because I'm so excited about this milestone. And thank you very much for this award; you are a true writing friend as well.

Julie Musil said...

Oh, this is so cool! Congratulations :D

Kimberly said...

Congrats on getting it into Kindle. I don't have a Kindle but would love to be entered. :)

Elizabeth Varadan aka Mrs. Seraphina said...

Michelle, Julie and Kimberly, you are all entered. And it's "winner's choice" whether you want the print version or Kindle version.
Meanwhile, Michelle, I entered you three times because of the tweet and FB. I know you have a copy already, but, like Rosi, you can always donate the extra to a library. :-)

Jennifer Shirk said...

Wonderful news!!
Will Tweet it right now!

Elizabeth Varadan aka Mrs. Seraphina said...

Thanks, so much, Jennifer. You are down for two points!

Rachna Chhabria said...

Great contest. I already have the book.

Lydia K said...

Sweet contest! Thanks!

Elizabeth Varadan aka Mrs. Seraphina said...

Rachna and Lydia, thanks for your visits. Lydia I have you entered in the contest.

Hello! I tweeted the contest link. Hope you have a great holiday weekend!

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

Elizabeth Varadan aka Mrs. Seraphina said...

Alexia good to see you here, Thanks for commenting, and tweeting. Hope you have a good Holiday week-end too.

Jess said...

Awesome contest, Elizabeth! I don't know how I missed this before, but thanks for the reminder in your comment on my blog! I'm putting your giveaway on my sidebar~ I don't post again until Friday, and I might skip that day because I have to drive to Denver for a conference. Thanks again for the chance to win your book :)

Elizabeth Varadan aka Mrs. Seraphina said...

Hi, Jess, thanks, you are in the contest with an extra point for putting it in your side bar.

Ron Smith said...

Thanks for giving me that free point, Elizabeth!

Elizabeth Varadan aka Mrs. Seraphina said...

Aha! one more point for you for commenting here.

Brenda Sills said...

Hi Elizabeth! Thanks for reminding me in your comments on my blog about your contest! I tweeted about it today! It would be fantastic to win your book!

Robyn Campbell said...

Egad, I got sick and almost forgot. I tweeted and blogged about it. But almost too late. *sigh*

It looks like you have a lot of entries though. :-)

Elizabeth Varadan aka Mrs. Seraphina said...

Not too late, Robyn. I gave you two more points, and now the contest is closed.

Thanks, everyone for participating.
