$50.00 Amazon Gift Card Spring Break Giveaway!

Today is going to be tough. That last day before a break and my launch into a much looked forward to week of pure writing (fiction that is, no psych reports allowed!) and reading, reading, reading. I am almost finished with I Am Number Four and I'm looking forward to the August release date of The Power of Six (Yay! but does anyone have an ARC?) and let's not forget the stack of other, sadly neglected, titles waiting for me on my IPad.

I can't wait.

So, to celebrate this upcoming week of unadulterated time that will be spent exactly the way I wish, I'm giving away a $50.00 gift card to Amazon so that you too (even if you don't get a Spring Break) can buy your way into some serious escapism (of the literary sort.)

Rules:
  1. Follow my blog (note the "follow" button to your right--press that please.)
  2. Leave a comment that you might like a little extra spending money for your book/eBook collection
  3. Blog about my contest for extra entries
  4. Tweet about my contest for extra entries
  5. (please let me know, in the comments, how many times I need to put your name in my hat. I promise more pics of my darling assistants picking The Name...they love doing it) 
I'll run entries through Tuesday the 22nd. Good luck, best wishes, thank you, thank you, thank you for being here and participating and just being a cool writer/reader type person in general.

  13. I follow on gfc
    I'm not exactly sure, but I'd love browsing and knowing I could pick any book I want. I'd probably get a copy of Chicken with Plums. I've been on a Satrapi kick lately.

    That makes 2 entries (unless adding them counts as a third).
