I Love Surprises, Don't You? :)))

So, I'm an epic fail at NaNo. BUT I did get a lot of revisions finished on my other book, which was a must. I've been doing a lot of reading lately, too. And while going through my tubs full (yes, it's true) of books, I realized there are still books that I wish I could have. (Now, thanks to ze Kindle, my dreams will come true!)

Guys, we're writers. We like to reward ourselves. Chocolate. Coffee. Lounging in front of the TV. Whatever. And I know, during the month of November, 100% of you wrote something. Anything. Doesn't matter if it was just a sentence or two. A lot of you weren't participating in NaNo, but you still had plans to write/revise.

SOOO...

How can I reward my friters (pronounced fry-ters, as in "fellow writers")?

WITH A CONTEST! 

I will buy and send you any book of your choosing.

But get this: I'm not going to have just one winner. How does two sound?

Hard work does pay off. Doesn't matter if you're writing 50,000 words or 50 words.

Contest is international. Deadline is Friday, December 17th. Post your points/total in the comments section, as well as your email address so I can notify you.

Good luck!

  3. New follower, though honestly Becca, I thought I joined your blog a long time ago. My bad. I don't join blogs to win prizes, so I'm not going to enter the contest (it's a personal choice), but I will blog about your contest anyway :-) Good luck and what a great giveaway!!!

  7. Every accomplishment is something...I got the 50k but I'm still trying to finish the d*mn novel...and I know revisions are going to take me a while. I already have several pages of "revision notes" and I'm not even done with the first draft *sigh*

    And I'm a new follower so +3

  11. I failed NaNo too! *fist pump in the air* :P I quit on day 5 or something. I'm not an aspiring writer or anything, so the blow didn't hit me too hard. Thanks for the contest!
