Tomorrow, Forged by Fate will be released in paperback and ebook form. It's my debut, and I am UNBELIEVABLY excited about it, and because ultimately it will be the people who buy the book who decide whether it sinks or swims, I want to give a little something back to those of you who are giving me the benefit of the doubt with your hard-earned dollars! All of that to say:
I am hosting a fabulous kick-off party book birthday giveaway!
So, here is the deal! This whole first week of Forged by Fate's release, THIS BLOGPOST is party central. Cake and Ice Cream and Champagne and pigs in blankets and fine cheeses and sturdy crackers and salsa and dip and chips, fine Italian pastries and PARTY FAVORS* abound!
Come and leave a comment (with your email address) before Saturday, March 9 at 10pm Eastern, and you'll be entered to win one of our fabulous doorprizes, including stickers (in your choice of #ThorLove or #AdamLove), autographed and personalized bookplates (just say to whom!), and bookmarks!
No purchase necessary, just show up and comment and be part of the celebration -- MOST prizes will be awarded at random. And if we're having a party and a mythology chat breaks out, HIGHEST OF FIVES, my friends! Anyone responsible for that discussion is definitely getting some door-prize action.
BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!
If you feel so inclined to buy my book between now and April 15th (please do, because seriously, I would like be able to afford a dog some day AND GOATS! consider your purchase a contribution to the goat fund!!! and, you know, my life in general...), email me your proof of purchase (a screencap of the order confirmation page/email or photo of the receipt is totally fine!) at amaliatdillin(at)gmail(dot)com, with "FxF GRAND PRIZE" in the subject line, and you will be entered to win the most fabulous of prizes -- a Forged by Fate t-shirt! Plus a set of stickers, bookplates, bookmarks, and (I am hoping hoping hoping I can get them printed in time for this second part of the giveaway), trading cards, of course.**
Want more chances to win THE GRAND PRIZE? Send along proof that you've spread the word about Forged by Fate with your proof of purchase -- if you write a review and send me the link that's +5 entries. If you posted about the book and the giveaway on your blog and send me the link, +3 entries! If you tweeted about it to all your friends or posted about it on facebook, send me that link, for +1 entry!
***Also, I forgot to say: The Grand Prize is OPEN internationally! The door prizes are going to be limited to just a maximum of TWO international awards, so international peoples, you will get your own pool (please make a note of your outside-of-the-USA/Canada-ness when you comment!) -- which probably means you all have pretty rockin' odds.***
The grand prize winner will also be chosen in a random drawing, and the winner will have one week to reply to my email with their shipping address and preferred t-shirt size and claim their prize. If they do not respond within that week, I'll draw another name and that person will have a week to do the same. For the doorprizes, I'll email the email you left in the comments, and you get a week to respond -- I may or may not choose alternate winners in the case of non-responders.
It is possible, depending on the number of people who enter the grand prize drawing giveaway, that there will be more than one grand prize, or perhaps a couple of secondary prizes -- we'll just have to see! So tell your friends because the more the merrier and the better chance of winning something!!
*Okay, so I am only giving away party favors and not any of the food stuffs but I am totally eating at least one chocolate cannoli on March 5th to celebrate. YUM. Also, fine print style, I reserve the right to alter the deal of this giveaway spectacular -- you may pray I do not alter it any further!
**Thor has gotten awfully stingy with the Asgardian Gold, so I'm sorry I cannot offer a fancier prize but I hope you will think this is AWESOME anyway because T-Shirt!!!!
