It's Giveaway Time!

I haven't done a giveaway for a while. I think I need to do one, especially since I just reached 800 followers on Twitter and I'm so close to 500 followers on my silly little blog. To say thank you, I'm going to give away three different prizes! WOOT!

1. A $10 Amazon gift card.

2. First chapter critique: I write YA, so I'd be better suited for that, but I'll do whatever. :)

3. A query critique.

Comment on this post and let me know which prize you'd like to win! And THANK YOU for being a follower. Whether it's my blog or on Twitter. I never thought I'd have so many wonderful friends. Not in a million years. You guys ROCK. :) Seriously. All of your comments make my day a little brighter.

I'll count some extra entries if you share this on Twitter or your blog. :) Just let me know in the comments.

With that being said, GOOD LUCK! :D

Contest closes on Friday. :)

I'd love a query critique. I blogged about it.

Way to go Chantele! You're so awesome, it's not wonder so many people want to follow you :)

And you don't need to enter me in the contest...but if you do, I'd go with #1 ;)

I like giveaway's. It might be time for one on my blog too. Not that I have much to celebrate, but I can think of something!

Small Town Shelly Brown said...

Awesome Chantele!

I really could use any of them. Do I have to choose just one?!?! You choose for me!

And I retweeted Gina's tweet. I'll tweet my own a little later.

Christine Rains said...

Congrats! Those are awesome numbers. Any prize would work for me, but I don't write YA, so you may want to steer clear of #2.

Amanda Olivieri said...

How fun!! I would certainly love a first chapter critique :)

KimberlyFDR said...

Oh, this is hard! I would love to get a critique on my adult urban fantasy, but I've also got your wonderful agent on my query list, so perhaps a critique of my query is more in order. It's hard to decide!

Umm...first chapter critique!

Samantha said...

That's so awesome! $10 Amazon card please :)

Katie Dodge said...

Yay!!! Congrats, lady! You're awesome!!! :D

Stephanie McGee said...

Oh gosh. I can't pick just one but I'd have to go with the chapter critique first then the gift card.

prerna pickett said...

woohoo! I would love an amazon gift card.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Gift card, as I've nothing to critique at the moment. I will go Tweet this though.

Jessica R. Patch said...

I want a gift card!!! Not that your critique wouldn't be sweet, but I need the second book to a series I'm reading at the moment. LOL

I shall tweet this now! :)

Sara said...

Well I'm not a writer and my Kindle is pretty much the death of me financially so... the Amazon gift card would be awesome! :D

Brooke R. Busse said...

I find it wonderful that you just randomly do giveaways like this. It's very giving and loving of you. ^^

A chapter critique would be nice as I'm trying to prepare my novel for querying before the end of the year.

Megan said...

Hi Chantele! Those follower numbers are incredible- hundreds of people HANG! ON YOUR EVERY! WORD! Haha. If I am the lucky winner, I would love a query critique. :)

Kathleen Doyle said...

Congratulations on reaching such high numbers! Way to go=) I'd love either the $10 gift card or the first chapter critique. (Haven't reached the query process yet!)
Thanks for the opportunity and for sharing your success with everyone!

Angela Brown said...

Aren't you just the sweetest thing? I'm not sure what to go with so I'll humbly wish everyone else luck and wish you luck as well as your followings on this blog and Twitter continue to grow.

Got here from Emily's blog. So nice to meet you :)

I'd be up for any. :)

Carol Riggs said...

Sweet! Congrats on the Twitter and blog followers!! You have lots of writerly friends. :) And you're so generous to do a giveaway to celebrate; I'd go for the gift card so I could buy a book to read (and after I'm done, use it as a giveaway on my own blog). :D

Nick Wilford said...

Number one would be very nice, please! I could use it from the UK - just use Amazon US?? I'm not quite ready for the other two yet. This is very generous!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Dianne Gardner said...

Wow,you have a following! Nice to meet you. I do YA to, just started and have a publisher looking...no contract yet but I'm hoping. Good luck on your books. If I win, a query critique would be nice. I am so bad at querying...
