A is for Announcement (Epic Blogiversary Giveaway)

Not only is today the first day of the A to Z blogging challenge but in exactly one month, on May 1st, this blog will be 2 years old. Yes, I have only been blogging for 2 years and the blog is getting close to having 200 followers. With all those 2's I just have to host an epic giveaway. While the A to Z challenge will involve many posts, don't worry about losing this one because over at my other blog ( the post will be easier to find. Yep, this giveaway involves 2 blogs. :-D

I am so grateful for every single follower and I hope many of you will take part in this giveaway. And for the first time ever, I am also doing some international prizes. Yep. People outside the US have chances to win prizes, which is part of what makes this an epic giveaway. And I have made two forms for people to use to sign up for the giveaway. One is for the US followers and the other is for everyone else. I wish I could share some of the prizes to everyone and not limit them to just US but I'm a little (okay, yeah I'm short too) broke person living at my parent's house and working at a pizza place just recently, so can't do the massive international shipping such a giveaway would require. Maybe when I win the lottery (lol).

If I get 200+ followers on either of the blogs, then there will be more prizes given out. However, if a prize doesn't have 5 people signed up to win then less will be given. Yes, we need lots of people to enter the giveaway so I can offer many prizes. There are price limits on the books as I'm sure you could guess. But it'll still be cool cause I will buy a book for you if you win. Yay for books.

Enter by filling out one of the forms located below in this post. Please, only enter one so make sure you've got the right one before submitting. That means you only need to fill it out once, either on this blog or over at It's In The Book. With your help, this will be a fun, excellent and very epic giveaway.

The giveaway ends on May 2nd. Yep, I'm including the official 2 year blogiversary day. So, get your entry in by May 2nd. If you have any questions about the prizes or any part of the giveaway form, email me at DawnEmbers(at)ymail(dot)com.

Thanks everyone for the comments.

J.L. Campbell - Thanks for letting me know. I tried it and the link worked so I'll get some people to help see what's wrong.

Terrific giveway and thanks for also having an International section. I often want to join in only to find that Australia is just too far.

Congratulations on the 2nd Birthday you have certainly crafted a great blog in that time.

I'm happily following from the A-Z challenge. I also have 4 blogsites but am utilizing only one for this challenge. Hope to see you there.

Dawn Embers said...

Soooz - Thanks. I'm happy to have followers and to be able to offer the international community a chance as well. It's not an easy thing but I'm already glad I made that decision.

I just discovered your blog while looking at a post from Rachel Gardeners blog about terrible books. You made the comment that you're sick of the YA love triangle that has the mystery guy with the soul connection trumping the reliable nice guy. You wanted to see a book that doesn't follow that formula and I was happy because the book I'm revising does that. I felt too bad for the nice guys. So good for you! Your blog is awesome. Congrats on 2 years! I have a blog too that chronicles my attempt to finish revising and get my book published. Hope you'll check it out too. :)
