(NOW CLOSED) It’s a new year! I finished out the year by participating in a blog hop, and now I’m starting the year by joining in the New Year Blog Hop! If you’ve never seen a blog hop before, it’s a series of giveaways that are run across a huge number of authors blogs. Each blog has their own giveaway, which you can enter (click on the image to the right for the full list of blogs participating). And the main site (that links everyone together) has it’s own giveaway where you can win a Kindle Fire HD, a $100 amazon gift card, 15 signed paperbacks, or 30 digital books.
For my giveaway, you don’t need to do anything special – just follow the instructions below to enter the draw. While there can only be one first prize, I will be drawing five winners.
4rd-5th prize – An electronic copy of Gears of Wonderland (provided via Smashwords)
2nd-3rd prize – An electronic copy of every book and short story I’ve released (provided via Smashwords – this is Gears of Wonderland, the Atomic Wasteland short stories, and my drabble collection)
- A print copy of Gears of Wonderland (not signed, unfortunately, as I don’t have any on hand – it will be sent directly from CreateSpace).
- A pendant (pictured above, full size image here), created by my wonderful wife. My wife sells handmade jewellery at Beyond Midnight Designs – there are additional samples on the right of this page.
- An electronic copy of every book and short story I’ve released (provided via Smashwords).
To enter, simply make a comment below telling me one thing you plan to do this year. It doesn’t have to be a “resolution” – it can just be a goal or task you want to achieve. The winners will be chosen randomly from everyone who participates.
I have two things I plan to do. The first is what everyone at the start of the year promises to do – lose weight. I only want to lose 3-4 kg, but I want to significantly lower my body fat percentage. I did pretty good at this last year, but then I managed to get sick, and never really got back into it afterwards.
The second thing I plan to do is work on the front garden of the house. By the end of the year, we will have a nice-looking garden!
So, those are my goals. What are yours?
Thanks to random.org, the winners have now been picked. Thank you to everyone who shared their goals for this year – I wish you all the best with them!
5th prize – Jade Phillips
4th prize – Crystal Craig
3rd prize – Michelle Bledsoe
2nd prize – Celia
1st prize – Jeannie Platt
The winners will all be notified by email shortly. Thank you again to everyone who entered.
