Link my trailer, win a book!


I would really like to get the trailer for String Bridge circulating around the Internet. Do you think you could help me out? In return, you will be in the running to win second hand books from moi, and ... something else, which I'll get to in a minute.

It's easy. All you have to do is link to my BOOK TRAILER somewhere on the web. In return, I am giving away FIVE books (from a choice of fifteen) -- so that's FIVE WINNERS (open internationally) for my books. But there could be more winners -- that depends on if you want to donate any second hand books. If you donate a second hand book as a prize you will be in the running to win a free, signed copy of String Bridge. Either an ARC in August, or, if you want to wait, the proper release in November. Your choice. I am giving away FIVE.

I'm going to keep this simple and avoid a point system. So commenting here with the link to where you plugged my trailer means you've entered to win a book. And just to clarify, if you link to trailer on either a blog post (and say a little about it) or on facebook (a unique link, not a share link) and donate a book, you will be entered into this giveaway and into the running to win a signed copy of String Bridge when it's out.

I hope I haven't confused you!!!

Anyhoo, this will only last until Thursday because the A-Z April Challenge starts on Friday. I will announce all winners on Thursday, and add any donations to the bottom of this post as they come in. (donator will be responsible for posting the prize to the winner).

So, the five winners of my books can choose one from the following:

Books by Marian Keyes:
Watermelon
Sushi For Beginners
Last Chance Saloon
Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married

Books by Jodi Picoult:
Handle With Care
Songs of the Humpback Whale
Perfect Match

Others:
Mourning Ruby, by Helen Dunmore
Brick Lane, by Monica Ali
A friend Of The Family, by Lisa Jewell
The Wonder Spot, by Melissa Bank
The Memoirs of Cleopatra, by Margaret George
The Reader, by Bernhard Schlink
Saturday, by Ian McEwan
A Long Way Down, by Nick Hornby

Donated Books so far (number of donated books equals number of additional winners):
1. Signed copy of Cinders + signed bookmarks, by Michelle Davidson Argyle (donated by Michelle Davidson Argyle)
2. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. (donated by Amie McCracken)
3. Notes From The Underground, anthology (donated by Judy Croome)
4. All-Amerian Girl, by Meg Cabot (donated by Sharon K. Mayhew)
5. Cairo Trilogy: Palace Walk, Palace of Desire, Sugar Street, by Naguib Mahfouz (donated by Deniz Bevan)




Easy peasy: Link, Comment, Win!  Good luck!!!

  39. Hey. I blogged about the book.

    www.rashelleworkman.blogspot.com or click on my name.

    Thanks! A great list of books. =D

    ReplyDelete
  40. Love it! Usually I avoid trailers because they often spoil the experience of my own imagination when reading the book. This was a music video that was abstract enough that it conveyed the essence of the book without imposing any concrete spoilage.

    I definitely Facebooked this one!

  41. Thank you for the awesome giveaway!
    String Bridge looks great!
