Okay, so to celebrate the fact that I've now passed 200K views on my blog (I mean, that seems like a petty big deal to me...) I decided to hold a little drawing. Thank you all for voting on what prizes you'd like to receive!
Grand Prize: Winner's Choice
You can choose whichever you want - to be a beta reader for one of my upcoming stories, to receive a free e-book (currently out or upcoming), or to receive a free autographed copy of one of my books that is out in print.
2nd Place: To be a beta reader for either Claiming His Wife or Mastering Lexie
Two 3rd Place Prizes: To receive your choice of free ebook - either a previously published book, Claiming His Wife or Mastering Lexie.
For anyone's who's confused about what a beta reader is - I currently have two of them and they get my books chapter by chapter as I write them. Then they email me back with suggestions / what they liked or didn't like about the chapter / continuity issues / things that piqued their interest / critique / questions / etc. The upside is that you get to read the story first and be a part of its creation. Things change when the beta readers point them out to me. The downside? It's a little bit like reading my stuff on Literotica, because there's often a wait between chapters. I'm flattered that so many people voted for this option =P Now, if you win 2nd and you would prefer not to be a beta reader, I'm not going to be insulted. It is work and it takes up time. I'll be happy to provide you with a free e-book instead =)
Anyway. If you would like to be in the drawing, please either leave a comment with your name / what you would like to be called when I do the drawing, or email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can use your actual name, a nickname or your email. Just something that you'll recognize after I hold the drawing and post the winners so that you can get in touch with me about claiming your prize. Get your name in by Sunday August 3, I'm gonna do the drawing next Monday.
Please, only enter once. I really want to be able to trust people and just do a regular drawing without having to have a whole bunch of specific rules, etc. If this goes well, I'll be doing it again in the future!!! Also, I promise, emails will not be used for anything other than this.
