Welcome to the release party for my first book, Natural Selection. First off, I'd like to start by giving the links on where you can buy it.
Paperback Kindle Nook All other ebook formats
Alright, now that you know how to buy it, let's talk about how you can win, and not just books. There are three major prizes and three simple things you have to do to win them. And whether or not you win the drawings, everyone who enters will get some swag.
#1 Autographed copy of the paperback version of Natural Selection
How do you win this? This is the easiest one of all to be entered into. All you have to do is comment on this blog with an email address. You must be 13 or older, but that's all I ask. International is fine. Everyone who comments will get a seed packet. I will email you to get your physical address, don't post it here.
#2 Natural Selection Notebook and an ebook
This one has a few options, but they all involve Facebook. There's three separate ways to enter. You can go to my page and comment on my wall. You can go to my author's page and like it (if you haven't already) and comment there. Or you can post about the book as your status, making sure to tag me (When you start typing a name an d the drop box appears, highlight my name to tag me.) in the post so I see it. You have to be my friend for this to work, but I accept all friend requests that don't seem to be spam or bots. Anyone who does one of these will get a bookmark and a chance to win the notebook and ebook. You do not have to do all three, and doing more than one does not get you extra entries. If you want to do more than one, go for it, but it isn't necessary.
#3 Natural Selection tote bag and an ebook
For the third and final drawing, tweet all about it. To be entered in this one, you need to tweet a link to buy the book or a link to this blog. So I can track the tweets, use the hashtag #forcesofnature. Everyone who gives a shoutout using that hashtag will receive a postcard and be entered to win the tote and the ebook.
*All items shown (except the book) are mine, I ordered two, so yours is still safely wrapped.*
There are a couple other ways to win. Check out my interview with Liz Schulte over at Bat Country. You can read an excerpt from Chapter Two at Michelle Ferguson Books. Musings of MD Christie is also hosting a giveaway Comment on one of these three blogs with your email address for a chance to win an ebook. Also check out Far from Reality on Saturday for a review of Natural Selection.
Edit: Giveaway is now closed. Winners have been selected and will be notified. All entries will be contacted for addresses for swag. Thank you so much everyone who participated and made my release weekend so much fun!
