Spread the Word Giveaway!

**Note: The Giveaway is now over. Thank you to everyone who entered! A new giveaway is now on — check it out here!

It’s hard to believe it’s only a little more than two months before GIVE UP THE GHOST hits the stores. Eeeee! Which means, guess what! It’s time for another giveaway. :D

The ghosts in Cass’s world take great delight in sharing secrets and spreading gossip. I’d like word about GIVE UP THE GHOST to reach as many readers as possible. So I’m going to ask you all to be my ghosts, and help me spread the word!

In return, I’m offering the prize pack pictured below:

Give Up The Ghost July Giveaway

-A signed advance copy of GIVE UP THE GHOST
-All five ghost scent samples
-A GIVE UP THE GHOST tote bag (the words on the side say, “I have friends… You just wouldn’t believe they exist.”)
-A 10″ LED paper lantern (bulb included)–it’ll look something like this when it’s open (from the book: Get [Paige] interested, though, and she brightened up like a Chinese lantern.)
-A friendship bracelet (from the book: I’d kept thinking of Danielle as my real best friend. We had the extra four years between us, that back history of friendship bracelets and sleepovers and secret sharing.)
-A sticker set featuring the main characters of the novel
-A GIVE UP THE GHOST button (not pictured, but I should have them by the time the contest is over)

Five others will receive a smaller prize pack with one ghost scent sample, a smaller paper lantern, a friendship bracelet, a sticker set, a bookmark, and a button.

Here’s how you can win!

Below you’ll find a list of different ways you can spread the word about GIVE UP THE GHOST. For each you do, you get an entry! Just comment and let me know each of the things you’ve done (preferably in a list, so it’s easy for me to count how many entries you get; separate comments if you do them at different times is fine, too). The more you do, the more entries you get. But you only need to do one to get a chance!

-Become a Fan of the GIVE UP THE GHOST on Facebook.

-Take the GIVE UP THE GHOST Character Quiz and post your result on your blog.

-Post one of the GHOST widgets on your blog or website (1 entry for each site/blog you post it on):

Here’s the code (just copy and paste):

<a href="http://www.megancrewe.com/gutg/"><img src="http://pics.livejournal.com/megancrewe/pic/0001etk6" height=170 width=170 atl="Give Up The Ghost by Megan Crewe"></a>

To get the code, click SHARE at the bottom right.

-Add GIVE UP THE GHOST to your GoodReads to-read or wishlist shelf (if you already have, it still counts! Just let me know). And you may notice that GoodReads users have an extra chance to win an ARC.

-Add GHOST to a GoodReads listopia list or vote for it on one it’s already on. (Note that I would not suggest you add it to a “best” list unless you’ve read the book and enjoyed it; but there are plenty of upcoming/to read/anticipating type lists, too.)

-Make an Amazon Listmania! or So You’d Like to… that includes GHOST — as general as “books coming soon” or as specific as “supernatural YA novels for fall 2009″, it’s all good! Or add it to a list or guide you’ve already made that it fits into.

-Got another idea for spreading the word? Ask me about it, and I’ll let you know if it’ll count as an extra entry. :)

The giveaway is open to anyone in the world. Let me know user names and blog/site locations where applicable. And don’t forget to leave your e-mail address if you comment anonymously so I know how to contact you if you’re one of the winners!

You have until midnight on July 20th. The winners will be picked by random draw and announced that week.

The code for the top widget isn't working for me. I did, however, post something on my journal.
Jul. 6th, 2009 04:17 pm (UTC)
I don't know why the code was wonky (Wordpress was putting in some funny quotation mark that messed it up), but it is fixed now! :)
