To celebrate the upcoming release of One Foot in the Grave
(only 14 days away!), we're having a spread-the-word contest...known officially as the "Bite a Friend Contest!"
The goal of the contest is to spread the love for Jeaniene's books! We want to introduce new people to Halfway to the Grave and/or One Foot in the Grave
. The contest starts NOW and ends at midnight of May 4th. Why May 4th? Because that is the Sunday after the release of OFITG, and sales between April 29th and May 4th will determine Jeaniene's rank on the bestseller lists. So if you want to help Jeaniene have a successful release week, buy OFITG between Tuesday and Sunday!How to Enter the "Bite a Friend Contest"
1. If you have a LiveJournal, MySpace, or blog/website of some sort--then make a post about either or both of the books. Maybe you could say why you loved HTTG, how you're excited about OFITG, or how awesome Jeaniene is! Urge your friends to read the books, and it might also be helpful to add links to either http://www.jeanienefrost.com
so people can easily find out more information. After you post, send me (Erin) a PM with the link to your post. Note: you only get credit for one post. You can post about Cat and Bones everyday if you like, but it still only counts as one entry.
2. Convince a friend to read HTTG or
OFITG by simple word of mouth. Unfortunately, it doesn't count if you've already convinced friends to read HTTG in the past--it only counts from this point forward. And since we need proof that your friend actually read it, tell your friend to sign up on the forums and PM me. The friend has to tell me YOU recommended HTTG or OFITG to her/him and
tell me their favorite part of the story in order for YOU to get credit in the contest. Note: there is no limit for this type of entry, so tell everyone you know to read the books!
Each time you enter the contest (once via posting and unlimited times via friend-telling-me), I will put your name in a hat. On May 5th I will draw a winner and announce it here! The winner receives a copy of One Foot in the Grave
...and possibly something else as well. Any suggestions? Would you guys be interested in OFITG t-shirts?
If you have any suggestions OR questions, feel free to post them here for the benefit of all. But remember that entries should be sent to me via PM, not posted here in this thread. Everyone here loves Jeaniene and her books, so get out there and "bite a friend!" Let's make Jeaniene's second novel another NY Times Bestseller! I know we can do it!
