The Fantastic Flaming Giveaway

It's here--the giveaway.  To be specific, the FANTASTIC FLAMING GIVEAWAY.  Note the flaming...thing to the left.  :)   I made it myself. 

Take a good look at it!  Be amazed!  :)

This is in celebration of three things; first, I have reached 40 followers!  Second, I have surpassed 100 posts, and last, this is celebrating anyone and everyone that is writing a novel.  If you've written anything at all in your novel, congradulations!

To get into this giveaway, you have to follow my blog.  This doesn't get you 'entries' like last time, but it is required if you want to get in on this giveaway.

Now, here are the guidelines for getting entries.

1) If you are writing a novel, you get an automatic entry.  Yep, you heard me right.  :)  Post your word count in a comment--or your chapter/scene count, if you don't want to share your word count--and that will get you an entry.  You have to post it in a comment, or else I won't know you wish to participate in the giveaway.

2) If you post about this giveaway on your blog (or some social networking site) you will get an entry.  Post the URL in a comment so I can verify it.  :)  It would be preferable if you copied and used the 'The Fantastic Flaming Giveaway' picture in your post.

3) If you participate in the next Word War (yes, there's going to be a Word War II), you get an entry.  If you win the word war, you get an extra entry!  :) 

And as for the prize....

A brand new copy of Wayne Thomas Batson's book Isle of Fire.   Perhaps not the newest book that's out, but, hey; it's a free book.  :) 

And if I get more than 10 participants in the Fantastic Flaming Giveaway...Well, there will be two winners.  Two people wil win a copy of Isle of Fire if I get more than 10 participants.  :)  

Coming up is a Word War, and a chance to win extra entries into this giveaway. 

If you don't wish to--or just plain can't--post things in comments, like word count for your novel, you can email it to me (jtbdude[at]gmail[dot]com).

Oh, and one more thing; I just started the writing section of One Year Adventure Novel, so I'll be posting the word count of that on the top of the blog as well as my Sadaar word count.

Get ready....this giveaway ends October 11, my birthday.  Moahaha. :)

PS; No close family may participate.  Yes, that means YOU, Vrenith.

Squeaks said...

I'll post about your giveaway on my blog later, but I'm not going to participate as I already own beautiful copies of WTB's Island series :) Oh, and for fun, my word count on Children of the Song is 10,625...I'm only on Chapter 3!! XD

Side note: you misspelled "comments" on the line where you gave out your email addres :P You said "commets" XD

Squeaks.

Jake said...

Commets? *looks around furtively* I'll fix it. :)

Chapter three?!? My chapters are rather short... :P Great job, though!

Eldra said...

I'm so totally in!! And my word count is. . . uh. . . let me check. *hops over to other laptop, looking suspiciously like a rabbit* 4736 words. In random scenes all over the book, as I don't always write in a linear fashion. And I'll post about this right away.

Star-Dreamer said...

Ok, I'm definitely in. My current word count on Eldrei's rewrite is 26,130. I'll post about this a little later. And I definitely want to get in on the second word war. :)

BTW, Happy early birthday! :D *balloons*

Galadriel said...

I'm in! Word count of my work-in-progress is about 30k, give or take 2k

Jake said...

@Eldra, Star Dreamer, Galadriel

Thanks, everyone! :) I'll write down entry totals in just a second. Thanks for jumping in! :D

Star-Dreamer said...

I just have to ask, when IS the word War going to be? Just curious... :)

Seth Skogerboe said...

Word count? Approximately 26 thousand words.

Jake said...

@Seth Skogerboe
Awesome! :)

@Star-Dreamer
Within the next couple of days, probably. I want this post to get a lot of I'm-at-the-front-of-the-blog time first. :)

I am in :) And I posted about it on my blog :D

Some of us are scared to post a word count for a book...I have 30k+ in one story, does that count?

And I want to know when that word war is :D

Jake said...

Sure, Millard! That counts. :)

I just explained a word war in my newest blog post. :D

Got you down for two entries, Mil!
