It’s been a long time coming, but today’s the day.
Time Heals is out today!
Now, as I’ve said before, I’ll be doing a two-week promotional blog tour, and I promised shiny things.
I keep my promises.
EDIT: 04/03/2013 THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS TO WINNER CASSEY BRIGGS!
As we did with All Wounds, this is going to be the huge Time Heals Giveaway Post!
For this book, I’ve done something special. For you, my wonderful fans who not only enable but encourage my crazy, I’ve made something.
Something especially for today.
For this book.
For this release.
I’ve had it done for awhile and I’m so pleased to offer it to you now.
For this book, I’ve hand-knitted an item Rebecca wears in Time Heals. A gray cowl.
Me modeling the different ways to wear this cowl.
The cowl is knit in Tahki Yarns Montana – 100% Pure New Wool in All-Natural Colors Made In Italy according to the label. It’s a thick beautiful natural gray, and 100% wool, so if you’re allergic to wool, my condolences. Though I don’t use Red Heart yarn (I’m a fiber snob, okay?), the pattern I used for this cowl is from them, so for those interested in knitting their own, there it is.
As I didn’t use the yarn the pattern calls for, the cowl requires some special care. Handwash only, no iron, no dryer, etc. I’ll send care instructions along with it to the winner of the giveaway. Just keep this in mind when entering.
But wait, there’s more!
Also up for grabs are:
A swag packet that includes a bookmark, bookplate, a set of vampire teeth, and samples of ALL FOUR of the custom tea blends I’ve made at Adagio Teas.
This is just an example photo. There will be four sample packets of tea included in this giveaway.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a book release giveaway if I weren’t giving away the book as well, now would it?
Not only am I giving away a signed copy of Time Heals (Stranger Things #2) …
…I’m also including a signed copy of All Wounds (Stranger Things #1) to get you in the Stranger Things mood.*
I don’t know about you, but I hate finding out a book I want to read is in the middle of a series I haven’t read from the beginning! Hopefully this fixes all that!
Now, how can you win this prize pack of awesome?
I’m going to make you work for it.
You will have to blog, vlog, tweet, (No Facebooking!** – they have rules about this sort of thing, so Facebook entries are void and prohibited and barred from this giveaway) or otherwise pimp this giveaway somewhere online. It doesn’t have to be all of them, but the more you do it, the more entries you’ll get! This contest is open to all over the age of 13 regardless of location. International okay. Void where prohibited, blah blah blah.
Here’s the hard part – I’m not going to hunt down your entries.
YOU MUST COMMENT ON THIS BLOG ENTRY ON MY WEBSITE WITH LINKS TO THE PLACES YOU’VE PIMPED THE GIVEAWAY. (DMs, messages, comments on mirror sites like Livejournal, and emails do not apply! Only comments on the website will be counted! Also, comments are always moderated so they won’t show up right away!)
Each link or whatever counts as an entry. You can do this once a day from the moment you read this until the giveaway ends at 11:59:59PM Pacific Standard Time, Tuesday, April 1, 2013 but they have to be unique links. No using the same links over and over. Each entry must be a new entry.
The more you pimp the giveaway and let me know you’ve done it, the better your chances of winning!
When the giveaway is over, The Almighty Random Number Generator will choose the winner.
If you win, again, I’m not hunting you down. Leave me a way to get in touch with you that’s NOT through Facebook. They have weird rules about that sort of thing.
