Giveaways and Stuff

Mary Montague Sikes on her Virtual Book Tour

Yesterday's post by Mary Montague Sikes was the first stop on her virtual tour. You may want to follow her from post to post, because she's keeping track of who's leaving comments and at the end of her tour, she'll conduct a giveaway.

In Mary's words:

"I'm conducting a contest with a signed copy of Night Watch as first prize. Just visit each site of my blog tour beginning Nov. 11 and ending on Nov. 19 and leave a message. I will count the comments to determine the prize winners. In case of a tie, I'll have a drawing. I expect to have second and third prizes as well."

Here's the schedule:

Nov. 11 - Patricia Stoltey

Nov. 12 - Nancy Williams, Writing Fantasy with author N. R. Williams

Nov. 15 - Alex J. Cavanaugh

Nov. 16 - Marian Allen

Nov. 17 - Bodie Parkhurst, Speak! Good Dog!

Nov. 18 - Mason Canyon, Thoughts in Progress

Nov. 19 - Karen Brees, KK Brees on Writing

Giveaway at Author Kelly Moran's Blog

Marilyn Brant is giving away two copies of her novel Friday Mornings at Nine. Read the interview and leave a comment at Author Kelly Moran's Blog through Saturday.

Patricia - Thanks for all of this news :-). I love it that you keep us "in the know."

Karen Lange said...

Thanks for the info! I'm actually hosting a giveaway on my blog as well. Thanks for letting me share it. :)
Have a great weekend,

Patricia Stoltey said...

Good morning Yvonne and Margot. I've won several excellent books in blogger giveaways, so I enjoy spreading the word to give others a chance.

Thanks for the giveaway news, Karen. I'm going to see if I can make that a clickable link to your site: Write Now. Karen's giveaway is a writer's package and only her blog followers are eligible.

Not a contest, but until Nov. 16th, there's a coupon code for A Summer's Eve, which is kind of a stand alone epilogue to my other Randy & Sarah titles. (No secret--it was a romance, so I don't think it's a spoiler if you haven't read the books to know they DID finally get together!)

Use Coupon Code BL83R at checkout at Smashwords.

And while you're there, I have another new Free Read. Please browse! :-)

Thank you so much for sharing all this, Patricia. I now know how very much time it takes to add these details.

Best wishes for a great tour - looks like a great lineup! Having just come off a two weeks tour, I know you will be both exhilarated and exhausted, lol.

Hey Pat - when you get a minute, could you do me the favor of posting your review of Hugs up on Amazon? Ah'd certainly 'preciate 'er if'n ya could, dahlin. (wink)

I'll check out some stops on this tour - interesting sounding and wow - quite the generous contest/giveaways!

Hey Patricia,

I noticed that your blog isn't listed in your Google Profile, so I had to Google your name to find it.

Ah, I love free stuff. I really need to take a close look at virtual tours; looks like they can be effective, especially when coupled with prizes!
