Never Slow Dance With A Zombie *Twitter Contest* !

I am very excited to announce that I have the great pleasure to work with the very talented E. Van Lowe, author of "Never Slow Dance With A Zombie"! A couple of weeks ago, Mr. Van Lowe contact me to see if I was interested in helping him with a Twitter contest to help promote the launch of his new book "Never Slow Dance With A Zombie". How could I refuse? I absolutely LOVE this book! (Ok.. I was jumping up and down but that's just between US)... Anyway, This is really a Fantastic and Fun Idea. I know that so many of my reader's tweet daily and this is an easy way to win something we all love - BOOKS! If you don't have a twitter account, and would like to play, you can easily set one up by clicking this Twitter Link!  Are you ready to play and want to know the rules? Well then, read on!

The Never Slow Dance With A Zombie Twitter Contest Sponsored by E. Van Lowe


The contest runs from October 2nd to October 7th. It’s easy to enter; just tweet or retweet a sentence using the book title, Never Slow Dance With A Zombie. That’s it! Your tweet can be as simple as: I will Never Slow Dance With A Zombie. Ever! Or creative like: Bela may slow dance with Edward, but I will Never Slow Dance With A Zombie.

What could be easier? Each time you tweet or retweet the title in one day you increase your chances of winning for that day. There will be a new prize winner everyday for the six days of the contest. Our only restriction is that no one player can win two days in a row.

A random drawing will be held after midnight each day. Winners will be notified by direct message via Twitter. A new contest begins at 12:01 (EST) the following day. And like I said, the more tweets you send in one day, the more chances you have to win. Please note that in order for me to direct message you, your twitter account must be public. What can you win for tweeting this wonderful title? I'm glad you asked!


Each day our winner gets their choice of one of six YA zombie book titles. Included in the mix is an autographed copy of E. Van Lowe’s Never Slow Dance With A Zombie. And if you win on day three, and want the same book chosen on day two. No problem. Winners can choose from any of the six books on the list. No restrictions.

There will be a new winner chosen every day from the 2nd to the 7th. Entries are good for one day, and one day only. The key to winning is to enter often.

Grand Prize

On October 8th we will award one grand prize chosen from all the tweets sent over the six days. The grand prize will be an Amazon certificate for $54.50, which just happens to be the cover price of the six books added together! All prizes will be mailed within two weeks of the contest. Prizes not claimed within two weeks will be forfeited.

Please join in the fun. Seven chances to win seven prizes over seven days. And all you have to do to win is tweet. You know you love tweeting. It’s time you made it pay!
