Hi, I'm Jamie. I'm a writer, reader, and huge TV junkie. I just might post about all three here on this blog. Have a look around. And if you want, drop me an email and tell me what you think. Thanks for visiting!

500 Followers! And a giveaway!!

My blog just hit 500 followers.

That's crazy.


I can't believe that 500 of you actually care what I have to say (which isn't much), but thank you!! Honestly, truly, thank you so much! I've been trying to get more reviews going, maybe throw in some posts on writing and the whole "getting published" process, so I promise...it'll get better! ;-P

Now, in honor of you guys clicking that little follow button, I wanna reward you somehow.

What can I do, what can I do...

Oh! I know!

How about an ARC of my upcoming book, Blood Born?

Anyone care to win a free copy of that, personalized by yours truly? Well, if you do, then you came to the right place!

Now, I'm not one of those who makes you scour the earth for clues, or earn 5,000 extra entries by posting about my giveaway all over the web on a daily basis (please feel free to do so, though!). No, I try to keep it easy. Normally, I simply ask for a comment on this post.

This time, though, I would like you all to take it 2 steps further. I know, you're all screaming "But hey! You just said--"

And I did just say I'm not that type, and I promise I'm not. But hey, this is an ARC of MY book--I can't give it away that easily! ;-P

So, to enter the giveaway (which is only for those folks in the US. Sorry international peeps, next time!), here's what you gotta do.

1. Comment on this post. (see? easy!)

2. In said comment, give me a link to somewhere you mentioned this giveaway (Twitter, your blog, Facebook, anywhere)

3. Head over to goodreads and add Blood Born to your TBR lists (see? easy again!)

That's it! I told you it wouldn't be that bad.

I'll keep this giveaway open until Midnight on Sunday, January 1 (Happy New Year!). Then on Monday, January 2nd, I'll post the winner!

Oh, and some Blood Born swag has been ordered, so if it arrives before I mail our the winner's ARC, I'll toss some of that in as well (bonus win!).

And thanks again to you all for following along with me...I <3 each of you!!

  16. Nice! And it was easy - one little tweet isn't hard. Here's mine http://twitter.com/#!/StuckInBooks/status/148443278654717952

    Congrats on the followers - just got one more.


  17. It's only been on my GR TBR Wishlist forever anyway, so that part was easy. I don't know why you'd want me to Tweet that the giveaway was happening because that means more people would enter and my odds would go down...okay, FINE.


    New follower too. :)

  18. Congrats on the 500+ followers!
