Here's what's happening, folks.
Hypothetically, I am very busy. School, writing NaNoWriMo (the word count above is NOT the current word count!), more school, guitar, church stuff, etc.
Let's say, hypothetically, that I win a book in a giveaway. Pretty cool, eh?
But let's say I already own the book. Let's say that it's a popular, new book that was published this year. Hypothetically, I decide to have a giveaway...
Okay, so it isn't really a hypothesis. It's the real deal. Yup, another giveaway. Cool, huh?
But as I said, I am very busy. Extremely busy, it can be said. So what am I going to do? Conducting a giveaway takes time for me. Quite a bit.
Now, you want to know what book I am giving away, and how you can get in on the giveaway, right?
But wait a second...I once heard of this idea one time that required almost no effort from me...wow, blast from the past...
Well, I'm done with the suspense. Here's what I'm doing:
"Kill this thread and win Venom and Song."
Déjà Vu! Seriously!
For those of you not in on the 'joke', a 'Kill this thread and win Venom and Song' once occurred to win a signed copy of Venom and Song from one of the authors himself, Wayne Thomas Batson. And that is almost the entire reason I have followers at all. I met a lot of other awesome bloggers as a result of that contest (which went for months!).
So here's the rules:
1) All you have to do in order to try and win is comment.
Easy enough, hm? But there's more.
2) You must be the last person to comment before the thread dies.
Easier said then done! A thread 'dies' when no one has posted for one day. 24 hours. You kill the thread? You win Venom and Song. But if someone comments before then, the thread lives another 24 hours! If Bob's comment was the last one for 23 hours and 59 minutes and someone posts, then the thread lives!
But as WTB did, I am adding another requirement.
3) You must post something MEANINGFUL. You can't just comment and say, "Comment". Do something meaningful! Share Bible verses, quotes, daily stuff, how your writing is going, what your dog did yesterday, the terrible financial state of the government (.5 million dollars in debt a minute?!?!), even talk to the other participants! Just make sure it has something meaningful. I shall swoop in with my Pen of Doom if you don't do something meaningful--I'm serious.
And, of course, the prize is a new copy of Venom and Song. :) Comment away, folks! Are ye going to be the first commenter again, Squeaks? ;)
Don't worry, I shall read every comment. Perhaps I shall join in the discussion as well! Tis up to you. And siblings...well, ye can participate, but ye cannot win. ;) LOL.
Are ye ready? Have yer fingers been pruned and primed? Is your keyboard greased?
FIRE AWAY!...and good luck. :)
Oh, by the way: the other Kill this Thread contest ended with 1,752 comments. ;) And no one actually killed it, in the end...
