100 Followers Celebration!

Contest closed! Thanks for entering and check back on Monday to see the three randomly chosen winners!

Okay, so I've been planning on doing a giveaway once I hit 100 followers, and I've been hovering at just under 100 for some time. (And BTW,if you're thinking of doing a giveaway of your own, here's a post on legal things to make you tear out your hair.)

I logged on this morning to do my post anyway, planning on calling it the "Close Enough to 100 Followers Celebration". Imagine my surprise and delight when I peeked at my followers and it showed 101! A big thank you to the Blogger community for sticking with me.

But I'm sure you want me to stop blathering and get to the good stuff: what are the prizes?

There will be three randomly chosen winners from the comments on this post, and each will get their choice of:

A digital or hardcover Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater (see my post on it here)

A Faces of Fat Kitty City Calendar; a donation of $20 will be made in your name to get the calendar (see all the pages here)

Or an Amazon.com gift card for $15 and pick out what you want!

Now for the rules:
Unfortunately, this giveaway is only open to U.S. addresses (unless you're able to redeem an Amazon.com gift card or get the electronic edition of SR anywhere--tried to find if you can do that outside the U.S. and the site was vague).

Tweets and shares are always appreciated, but not necessary to enter or win. You also don't need to be a follower, but you must leave a contact in your comment, or have it available through your Blogger profile. My last contest, I had to do a lot of online legwork to track down one of the winners and this time around if I can't reach you easily, I'll pick another name.

Also leave which item you would choose if you win in your comment, please.

The contest will end December 16 at 11:59 PM, Pacific Standard Time, and the winner will be announced December 19 on my blog. I do have an Amazon Prime account, so there's a chance that your prize will get to you by Christmas if it's the hardcover book; I can email the gift card or the code for the electronic edition, so those could reach you even quicker. The calendar will be shipped via media mail; the USPS site says that can take 2-8 days.

Addendum: As a Pay it Forward, I'd like to direct your attention to Christine Johnson's YA Authors Against Animal Abuse auction. Some great swag up for auction from the likes of Carrie Ryan, Cassandra Clare, Julie Kagawa and more. I'm hoping for the Carrie Ryan books myself, but higher bids for the critters are good too!

hmm...if i won, i'd probably like the SCORPIO RACES. I've heard such excellent things about it, but haven't gotten it yet. bad karla :)

Christina Mercer said...

Wow, 101, how awesome is that!?

If I won, I'd take one of those lovely calendars ;-D

Congrats on 101 followers! I'm just under the 100 number and looking forward to getting there too.

If I were to win it'd be the Amazon card, because I'm an Amazon junkie. :)

Joy D. Fanning said...

Yay for hitting over 100!!

If I were to win I would like the gift card.

I have the same idea for when I hit 100 followers...only at 30 so it will be a while! But its encouraging to see others hit that mark!

Angie said...

Big huge congrats!!

I love MS and would take the Scorpio Races any ol' day. Oh, but the kitty calendar is cute too. Hmm... I don't think I could decide right now. :)

Congratulations, Angelica!

I'd love the Amazon giftcard, if I win.

I'll share this on Facebook.

Colin Smith said...

Congrats, Angelica! I'm nowhere near the 100 mark yet, but I'm sure I'll be just as excited if/when that happens. I've heard a lot of good things about The Scorpio Races, so I suppose I would like the ink-and-paper version if I were to be fortunate enough to win your competition. :)

I remember when you were just a fledgling blogger. Look at you now, spreading your wings! Happy 100.

I'd love the calendar. I should have bought one today. So, if I don't get it, save one for me. I'll give it to H for her birthday.

Melanie said...

Awww, Angelica! You would have been at 100 sooner, but several months ago I got knocked off of EVERYONE'S blog. Not sure what happened, but I've had to manually re-enter my info to each blog I was a member to, but i've been such a lame blogger lately that I didn't realize I hadn't yet re-entered my info on yours! Booooo. Sorry. But, great contest! And I congratulations on getting to 100. I myself am in the 90's. Will be nice to get over 100 :) One day.
