Gratitude Giveaways Hop: Winner’s Choice

Hi, all, it’s Sher here with a big thanks to those of you who follow my blog and a another big thanks to Kathy at Iamareader for hosting this hop. I have different winner’s choice prizes according to following methods and additional prizes if I reach goals for new email subscribers, so spread the word!

Since I moved from Blogger to WordPress this fall, some of you may think you follow but really don’t. I switched everyone on Networked Blogs to follow, but Google Friend Connect (GFC) followers need to follow another way. It’s your choice how you follow, but the prize will depend on which way you follow. Please read the following explanation.

If Rafflecopter picks an email subscriber, the prize will be either a box of books from my used stock including 1 hardback (US only) or a $20 Amazon or Book Depository gift card (INT). Following by email is easy via the widgets on my sidebar and footer. WordPress users can choose to subscribe by registering via the META widget, and that also counts as an email subscription. Your user ID is the name you use in WordPress or your URL.

All other following methods such as RSS, NB, or Bloglovin’ are eligible for a large mailer of my used books (US only)  or a $10 Amazon gift card or $10 PayPal cash.

The one requirement is to leave a blog comment telling me two things:

1. how you follow (ie. RSS, NB for Networked Blogs, BL for Bloglovin’, LT for Linky Tools) Note that even though I don’t have widgets for all following methods like Bloglovin’ or Linky Tools, they’re valid.

2. your user ID (for NB, BL, LT, etc.) or what email you use to follow via RSS or email subscription.

An alternate entry method for both 1 and 2 is to paste a link to your user ID in the Rafflecopter form. For WordPress users, you can paste in your blog’s URL. I just need a way to check.

If you also want to tell me what kind of books you like, it will save time choosing if you win. Even though my blog is Kid lit, I still have many boxes of classic SF and fantasy for adults. However, very little romance remains.

Additional prizes!

If I receive over 25 new email subscribers, I will choose two winners, and the second prize will be the mailer of books (US) or $10 gift card (INT).

If I receive over 50 new email subscribers, I will add another mailer of books or $10 GC as third prize. I doubt it will happen, but each 25 email subscriber level will add another prize until I run out of books. Not likely.

One caveat: I just received word that my mom is in the hospital, so if I have to fly to Seattle, mailing books may be delayed.
