We Love Authors Contest

Time for a new contest!

This one's going to be a little different, although it should sound familiar to some of you. Here's the idea. I'm so very grateful to all the fabulous authors I had the pleasure of hosting here at The Shady Glade during my blogoversary. So what better way to say thank you than purchasing their books? The author gets to share their book with a new reader, you get a great book to read, plus I'm giving away a bunch of books to those who enter. But more on that in a minute. First,

How to Enter: Simply buy one or more of the books by one of the authors featured during last month's blogoversary (you'll find a list at the bottom of the page for your reference). Then email me a copy (or screenshot) of your receipt or pre-order along with your name, email, and mailing address. Each book you buy = 1 entry.

Prizes: Because that's the most important part right? Winners of this contest will have a shot at these four books:
A paperback copy of Aurelia by Anne Osterlund, an ARC of Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev, an ARC of The Swan Maiden by Heather Tomlinson, and an ARC of The Real Real by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus.

Whether or not there are split up or won as a group depends on the number of entries received. I may also add additional prizes if I get lots of entries. So go enter!

Misc. Rules: Books must be purchased between September 1st and the end of the contest. Open internationally! You can get one entry for each book you buy. Contest is open until October 31st at midnight. Winners will be randomly selected from the entries.

+1 for every book you buy
+1 for posting this link on your blog/website (leave a link here)
+1 for telling me who referred you
+2 for every person who says you referred them

And, in case you need it, here's a list of all the authors (and many of the books) you can buy to be eligible for this contest. If you'd like to see the posts on any of these authors, you can see that here. Good luck!
