Princess' Premiere Royal GIVE-A-WAY


NEW INFO: OK, Up to Today @ 6 pm EST is the LAST POST that will be taken. The winner is going to be drawn by my son, who has done a wonderful job cutting out the papers and copying your names onto them. (Cute huh?) The names (yours may be in there more than once and are in there if I told you that I got your name when I posted) A few things for this give-a-way. It is open to anyone. That may change for furture give-a-ways, especially if they are going to be weekly with reviews and interviews. I feel awful for that, but I simply can't do it. If I could buy all of my new friends a book for BYFAB week, I would. You are all so wonderful and supportive and I appreciate the warm welcome.

ALL OF THE NAMES HAVE BEEN PLACED inside of the Pricess' pointy pink hat, as shown in one of the pictures below and will be drawn by my son at random. The FIRST name he picks out is the winner. I will post your name here! You have 48 hours to claim your prize. If I do not hear back from you, your prize is forfeited and given to the next name drawn and so on and so on (until we have a winner) ... In your email to me, you must include your adrress and the title of the book you would like. Good luck to all that have participated and THANK you for making my new blog a success. Please do continue to stop by for more daily fun and weekly prizes.

XXX- Kisses

Hi All! As I promised, here it is, my very first ROYAL GIVE-A-WAY! Why am I doing this you ask? Well, I'm making major changes to my blog in the next few weeks, and not only that, it's Buy Your Friend A Book Week. And because I see all of you in our Book Blogging Community as my group of new and highly respected friends, it's that simple!


The major changes being made are going to be reviews or books that I've read and reading, blurbs about new books out, and hopefully MANY more book related topics. I'll be renovating the castle, so to speak! : )

About the GIVE-A-WAY, all you have to do, is post HERE, ON this POST ONLY, and link it up to your blog (for two entries) Please put something about me starting my new book blog and to stop by and see what's up! OK? The WINNER will be listed back here on Sunday, April 6th. I know a lot of you do the Sunday Salon, so you can stop by when you're done. I'm also trying to work on getting a Feed Burner thingie on here (Lord knows I'm NOT a TECHNO-Wiz! If anyone can help me with this, let me know!

On with the PRIZE.....(Drumroll PLEASE!)

You may pick ANY title (a brand new copy) that you would like! That's right, ANY Book Title may be yours. Just follow the directions, POST and LINK for two chances and then EMAIL me when you see that you are the winner with your information! It's your choice, you're MY friend and it's Buy MY friend a BOOK week! (OK, YOUR friend, technically...)

So, nothing fancy YET, just because it's my first one : ) But I would like a free book of MY choice, wouldn't you? Oh yes and if you POST about it on your blog, please leave the link for two chances! That's it!

(If anyone knows how to make this a "Sticky Post"...PLEASE inform the Princess! Thank you!) Good Luck!!

    The way to make a sticky post is when you create a post, click post options. (Blue writing next to an arrow above orange Publish Post) Change 4/01/08 to 4/01/09 and it will be posted as April 1st, 2009, thus giving you a "sticky post."

    I'll mention your giveaway on mu blog as well.

  22. Hi Princess! Great giveaway. I see that you haven't done this post as Sticky yet. Christina's right. Maybe you'd like to edit this post and change the date to a future date (ie. 4/1/09). That way, it'll stay at the very top of your blog.

    Oh, I've also blogged about your contest here for an extra entry :P
