Contests

I have ARCs! (Well, some of them. The others are in a package UPS seems to be unable to keep a hold of the correct address for. But I should have those before *too* much longer.)

Which has me thinking about contests and giveaways, because I plan on sharing at least a few of them with all of you. So I was wondering, since the contests and giveaways are for you... what sort of contests do you like?

Straight-up "comment and I'll randomly draw names" or "complete this task to enter"?

Just the book, or extra swag, too? What sort of swag do you like? What about other books along with my own?

All and any thoughts on what sort of giveaways get you excited are very much welcomed! :D

I always like the easier the better for contests. Because I'm lazy like that. Eeep! :-)

Oh, anything with your book as the reward is good :)

Any opportunity to read a new book is fine with me!

WOW! Do they have the final cover art on them? Or are they plain paper? Or what???

They have cover art! I have actually seen the full jacket layout, but it's not "finalized" yet so I am still not allowed to share. :(

Okey doke, I know you have to be good and wait. :) I'm glad they have art on them; the plain paper covers just don't grab attention. But they are better than temporary cover art which is often pixelly/generic/awful. :)

I think you should just send me one XD!!!!

Otherwise, I like random number generators.

I always liked the "complete this task" contests. They're more interactive. And I would just be happy with an ARC! More swag is not necessary.

Contests are fun, but also hard to think up, imo. But I'm always up for winning ARCs.

I'm lazy too and like random number generators (though I also like posting widgets on my blog for book releases!).

As far as what...I'd be happy with just the ARC, but I like bookmarks and coverflats and pretty much any promotional stuff you wanna throw at me I'll love to death. I'm really a book promo-slut sometimes...

Also if you want to send along other books I will not be adversed to being gleefully happy of course XD
