I’m in the mood for a give-away, or two!
UPDATE! TITUS HAS WON THE SUBSCRIPTION TO OCEAN MAGAZINE! CONGRATS TITUS! I’VE ORDERED THE SUBSCRIPTION FOR YOU. I’LL MAKE THIS PART OF THE POST SMALLER SINCE IT’S DONE – THE BOOK GIVE AWAY BELOW IS STILL GOING ON.
I want to give away a subscription to OCEAN Magazine. Diane Buccheri is the publishing editor of OCEAN and DOLPHIN magazines-both of which I have subscriptions to. I adore Diane and her efforts for our oceans.
OCEAN is delivered via mailbox, and DOLPHIN is delivered via electronic mail. Both are worthy magazines and the money goes to: OCEAN is a not for profit organization dedicated to celebrating and protecting the earth’s ocean and its creatures.
The value of an OCEAN magazine subscription is $32.00, of which I will pay in entirety to the winner of the give-away–that means you receive a year’s subsciption (4 issues a year) in your mailbox as a gift from me *ain’t I sweeeeeeeet*.
[If the winner prefers to receive a subscription to DOLPHIN magazine through electronic mail instead (value $16.00), please let me know your preference (just one, not both!).]
To win a copy of OCEAN (or DOLPHIN), go to the OCEAN magazine website and click around until you find the DOLPHIN magazine cover – describe what is on the cover —both the image and the text that is on the front cover of this issue’s DOLPHIN magazine. Then, next, you must also mention OCEAN magazine in a blog post (however you wish to do this is fine).
After you have mentioned Ocean Magazine AND found the image/text for DOLPHIN’s cover, tell me about it in the comments section (be sure your blog is linked so I can see it) and after I confirm who has done this first, I have my winner!
So this is how it goes: Sally Smith comes to my blog, sees my give-away, she goes to the OCEAN site and clicks around to find DOLPHIN magazine and the cover – she notes the image and text on the cover. Then Sally Smith goes to her blog and mentions OCEAN magazine (“I heart OCEAN Magazine!-or whatever . . . “) then comes back here to the comments and tells me what is on the DOLPHIN cover and that she has mentioned/linked OCEAN magazine on her blog. Yes, it’s not as easy as my usual give aways and I’m making you work for it a little harder this time, but, dang, it’s also a really great give-away for a good cause: our oceans and the creatures in them!
For the next give-away: THIS BOOK GIVE AWAY IS STILL UP FOR GRABS!
While I was at SIBA, I grabbed from my publisher’s table (Belle Books) some book for give-aways. Some are final copies and some are review galleys. I just thought it would be fun to do a book give-away from time-to-time. This morning, I randomly grabbed one of the books out of the bag o’ books I have, and here you go:
I’m giving away a copy of SUNRISE by Jacquelyn Cook — an epic novel of love, family, faith, and war–set in 1849 antebellum Georgia.
To win a copy of this book, go to my website at kathrynmagendie.com and tell me who wrote the reader’s guides for Tender Graces and Secret Graces, and as well, tell me where she is from, and what she does for a living. The first person to do this in the comments wins SUNRISE. That’s it!
One caveat: please, the same person can’t win both of these give-aways! So pick the one you want and try for it. I’d like to be able to give the prizes to two separate people. Thank you!
