I have to admit. My 50 follower giveaway was a huge ego boost. I gained 47 followers. That’s almost double where I started. Thank you for taking a chance on me. I truly never expected so many people to click my GFC link. I received 55 unique entrants who submitted 315 entries.
It’s interesting that most of the individuals participating in the giveaway were new followers. If old followers didn’t visit during that time, it’s a shame they missed the giveaway. If you’re interested in receiving notices when I post, be sure to subscribe via the RSS feed. I’ll work on getting an email subscription up this week for those who prefer.
Moving on. I found a buttload of new blogs to follow. If you signed up as a GFC follower, I tried to make sure I checked out your website.
Also, a lot of folks listed quite a few books I’d not read yet and a couple I have. 🙂
- “Nightshade” by Andrea Cremer
- “Firelight” by Sophie Jordan
- Kate Daniels Series by Ilona Andrews
- Elemental Assassins Series by Jennifer Estep
- Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning
- The Downside Ghost series by Stacia Kane
- Comfort Food by Kitty Thomas
- The Scent of Rain and Lightning
- Almost Human trilogy by Melanie Nowak
- The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa
- The Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner
Any if you haven’t checked it out, these books are up for grabs in Giveaway #4 My Buddies Fab Fav! for the Welcoming the Fall Giveaway happening right now!
If you haven’t entered, please do. On a special note, Kitty Thomas, the author of Comfort Food (She landed in three of my Welcoming the Fall Giveaways! Yes, she’s that beloved!), has granted me a special interview. Stay tuned, cause I’m expecting her October 1st. Anyone smell another giveaway on the horizon?
So you’ve stuck it out this far with me. Now what? 🙂 I know! How about those winners already!?!?
First up! $20 worth of books from the book depository.
[CLAIMED] Congrats, Marlene. Start thinking about what you want, cause I’ll be sending an email shortly!
Next! A book of choice from book depository worth up to $10.
[CLAIMED] Congrats, Jeanette! You’ll also receive an email. 🙂
FYI: I included bonus entries in the 315 tickets. However, those tickets are listed separate from the main entry. For example, Marlene tweeted during the giveaway and also has tickets 312, 313, and 315, not listed in the screenshot. And of course, others earned bonus entries because someone listed them as the referral source.
Thanks everyone for participating. Winners have until Monday, September 27, 2010 to get back to me with their choices. Otherwise, I’ll pass on the winnings to someone I’m sure is bursting to get new books in their hands.
Anyway. Great news for my contest junkies. 🙂 The Welcoming the Fall Giveaway continues until September 29, 2010. There’s a little something for every book reader. 🙂 Check it out!
