On March 1st I celebrated the birth of Help From Above, my Christian fiction novel! Wow! I can hardly believe it has been six years since Help From Above was first published! Anyway, to celebrate, I'm running a contest where you'll receive the gift, which is a free autographed copy of Help From Above! This is the first of the surprises that I said was in store for my 2008 goals. Even if you already own a copy, you're still welcome to enter, because this Christian fiction novel makes a wonderful gift! Here are the details:
First, the basics: The contest ends on April 3, 2008 at 12:00 a.m. Central time. The winner's name will be drawn from a hat by yours truly. You will get a chance to have your name placed in the hat four times. Now, are you ready to find out how to enter? Great! Here's how:
1. Announce this contest on your blog. You must place a link to the contest from your blog. Once you've announced the contest on your blog, return here and leave a comment with the URL to your blog, so I can confirm your entry.
2. Subscribe to my RSS feed via e-mail. You must subscribe via e-mail so I can confirm your entry. After you've subscribed, contact me (see the link in sidebar) with your name and the e-mail address you subscribed with. This allows me to associate the name with the e-mail, because the winner will be announced on this blog, and I don't want to make your e-mail address public if you're the lucky one.
3. Head to my website to read the first three chapters of Help From Above free. Next, return here and leave a comment to let me know your thoughts on the first three chapters. Your comment must include a short review based on the first three chapters of Help From Above in order for this entry to be valid.
4. Place an announcement about this contest in your newsletter or e-zine; the announcement must include the link to this contest. After you've placed the announcement in your newsletter or e-zine, contact me (see link in sidebar) with a link to the newsletter or e-zine, or forward me a copy of the newsletter or e-zine that you placed the announcement in. Again, this allows me to confirm your entry.
You can enter using as many of the four aforementioned ways as you wish. For example, if you perform number one and number two, then you'll receive two entries into the Help From Above Birthday Contest, which means your name will be placed in the hat twice. Perform all four and I'll put your name in the hat four times. Sound fair? Then by all means, place your entries before the deadline!
The winner name will be revealed here on April 6, 2008. At that time, I'll provide instructions for sending me your address so I can ship the book to you. By the way, shipping, of course, is free too. Good luck!
Help From Above Birthday Contest Deadline: April 3, 2008, 12:00 a.m. CST.
