As many of you know, I’d just started a library giveaway a couple of days before my site went down. It was impossible to gather and track entries without the website, and since my server host hadn’t backed up my data, I lost everything.
But like many in this economy, libraries are struggling. Faced with budget cuts and severe restrictions on their spending, many of them are currently imposed with buying freezes, which makes it impossible to add new books to their shelves.
So I’m going to try this again by giving away a complete set of the Prophecy of the Sisters Trilogy to five libraries in the US and/or Canada and a choice of any one of the Prophecy books to five readers who spread the word about the library giveaway.
Here’s how it works;
If you’re a librarian or library representative, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO ENTER IS LEAVE A COMMENT HERE ABOUT WHY YOU’D LIKE TO WIN THE BOOKS FOR YOUR LIBRARY. You may enter on behalf of a library as long as the mailing address for the books, should you win, is a library or school.You don’t have to post your library’s address on your entry (you can send it to us if you win) so long as the address we ultimately mail the books to is a school or library.
I’m also going to throw in some color-coded wristbands and bookmarks for each of the Prophecy books that you can use as giveaways or reading incentives for your kids.
If you are NOT a librarian or library representative and would like to enter to win your choice of Prophecy books, Tweet and/or Facebook something like the following;
Michelle Zink is giving away FIVE sets of the Prophecy of the Sisters Trilogy to libraries in the US and Canada! #michellezinkloveslibraries http://michellezink.com/library-giveaway-v2-0
This is important; you MUST tag me on Facebook (Michelle Zink) or Twitter (@michellezink) AND include on Twitter the hashtag #michellezinkloveslibraries and you must include a link to this page (Twitter will shorten it for you so everything should fit). Your entry will not count if you don’t include these things because we want libraries to be able to find the page to enter and it will be next to impossible for Rebekah to count your entries without the tags and hashtag.
You get one entry for every time you Tweet with the hashtag and/or post to your FB status. Contest runs from now until next Wednesday, October 4th at Midnight EST. Library and reader winners will be announced together the following Sunday. This contest is open to residents of the US and Canada.
I apologize to those libraries and readers who had already entered this contest before my site went down. I’m deeply sorry to make you repeat the effort, but I think this is an important giveaway and I didn’t want to blow it off because of the site outage.
Ready… Set… Go!
