Taking Back My Space! And a CONTEST!

I have let Twitter and Facebook overtake my online time, and Facebook's decision this week to disallow contests when I was in the middle of a big one really ticked me off. But more than that, it made me realize I need to take back my space, and put content that's important to me up here, instead of where the social media sites can limit my words or change rules on me. (Of course, blogger could do the same thing, I suppose, but let's pretend we're safe here for now!)

SO here we are at only 3 weeks until VAMPIRE IN ATLANTIS hits a bookstore or an e-book reader near you!! Woohoo! June 7th! For chapter one and pre-ordering info, go HERE.

Which brings me to the contest. It's a PREORDER extravaganza!! Publishers love pre-orders; they let them know how many books to get out to stores. So if you pre-order VAMPIRE IN ATLANTIS (Daniel!! At last!!!), email me a copy of your receipt at mail@alyssaday.com with your name and mailing address and you will be entered to win one of two genuine Japanese Kokeshi dolls, purchased on my travels.

And EVERY SINGLE READER who emails me your preorder receipt will receive a personalized, autographed bookplate for your brand-new book (the stamp's on me!) just for entering.

Enter today! The contest runs through June 1st. Good luck!

hugs,
Alyssa

However you want to buy it is fine with me! Just send a pre-order receipt and you're entered!

Alyssa I want to enter your contest, but I have a problem. I preordered "Vampire in Atlantis" for my Kindle. Because it is all electronic I don't get any proof of purchase until the release date. Can I email you a copy of my preorders from the Manage Your Kindle page?

I pre-oredered with Amazon too, I can get a screen shot showing I pre-ordered but they don't send out a receipt until after the book is released.

Sure Kindle preorders are fine. Screenshot or preorders. Love those e-book downloads!

Ebook orders make it so convenient - one doesn't have to make their way to bricks & mortar stores on release date.

But it isn't in HC all the rest I have are HC so they display nicely! I will have to wait till they have that format available!

Bonnie said...

I think I just sent you an email with an image of my pre-order receipt, but I'm not sure as I've never used the Microsoft Word email thingy. I'm very excited for June 7th!
