My First Giveaway!

It's spring in New York! My book's getting published next year! I'm feeling generous! Exclamation points are fun.

Really, though, I'm about to switch jobs and I want to take all the most fun parts of my old job (which involved social media and competitions) and use it in my author life as an apropos way to bid adieu. And also as a way to give you prizes.

So, here's the deal. I've come up with a fun little contest that I'll be running on Twitter AND I can tell you the prizes:

ONE grand prize winner will win a $50 Amazon gift card
TWO runners-up will each win a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card

Everyone who participates will win my undying devotion. Oh, and Twitter hearts. Old job made me VERY good at Twitter hearts, trust me.

And now here's the catch: I'm going to run the contest as soon as I have 250 followers. That is what the Twitter fairy who visited me last night told me to do, and that's what I'm sticking with. As of this blog posting, I'm at 192 followers. What's 58 followers between friends, eh?

So if you'd like to give a little nudge to all your Twitter followers and get me up to 250, the contest will be up that much sooner. Here is where you can find me:

In the meantime, I'm going to go have a talk with the Twitter fairy. We have GOT to discuss that skimpy 140-thread outfit.
