The 1000 follower push **International Giveaway** [Ended]

Pen to Paper started out as a fledgling blog back at the beginning of September, and already it has become so much more than I thought I could ever make it. Starting only four months ago with no followers, and getting to 850 of you wonderful people in such a short amount of time is wonderful, so thank you for that - you guys have been amazing!

I have loads planned for 2012 on the blog - a new look, more giveaways, and plenty more exciting author interviews (with a couple of authors that are quickly becoming favourites of mine!). I will of course keep you all updated on the giveaway and author interview front - I promise you won't be disappointed!

Talking of giveaways...
I have decided that since we are so close to 1000 GFC followers, that it's about time we gave it one last push to get there. So, here is what I propose.
A giveaway - but of the special kind!

The giveaway will last for one week. There will be at least one winner, who will get to choose from the list of wonderful books below (some of which I've enjoyed, and others I'm really looking forward to reading this year). If I reach the magical 1000 GFC followers before the giveaway ends, then a second winner will be chosen!

Before we start, I'd like to lay out a few rules for the giveaway!
  • You must be a follower of Pen to Paper to enter (obviously). I will check that you are a follower if you are pulled out as a winner. If you're not, your entry will not count and another winner will be chosen. This giveaway is for my wonderful followers - so become one of them :)
  • I will need your follower profile URL in the extra info bit in the Rafflecopter below. To find this, you need to go onto the blogger homepage and find your full profile page. This page should have a list of all the blogs you are following on it. This is the URL I need. If you really can't find it, then leave the exact follower name you follow by on GFC.
  • If you are chosen as a winner and I email you, you will have 48 hours to reply to the email. If I don't receive a reply in this time, I will have to draw another winner, and you will lose your prize - sorry but someone has to win!
  • I can not be held responsible for any books that are delivered damaged. The prizes will be ordered from The Book Depository, and do not come through me.
  • Please don't leave your email address in the comments. I have trouble with this every time I do a giveaway. I use Rafflecopter so that your email addresses are not available to anyone but me (and only then if you win). This is for your own safety :)
  • There is one initial entry for following Pen to Paper. There are extra entries available once you have done this one. You don't have to do the extra entries - but they could be the difference between someone else winning, or you winning!
  • The giveaway will end on January 9th at 23:59 EST

Right! Now for the fun bit! Which books are up for grabs I hear you ask! Well take a look at these lovelies:

A lovely selection of books to choose from, I think you'll agree!

Now all you need to do to enter is fill in the Rafflecopter below! Good luck!

The book I would choose is Delirium because I hear so many good comments about the book I would love to read it!

Darlene said...

Oh, boy! Tough choice!! I haven't read anything yet by Maria Snyder, and her Study series was recommend to me...so I would probably also like Touch of Power. Storm Born sounds right up my alley! Both of them appeal to me.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Kah Cherub said...

I think I'd choose Stray, bacause I've read most of the others (Book Thief, Delirium...) and the cover really caught my eye. :)

Jane Hanbury said...

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris because she is a popular author and I have not read any and would like to try her books.

Michelle Scott said...

I would go for the Maria Snyder book since I've heard that she is a terrific author! The only book I wouldn't be interested in, though, would be the Charlaine Harris book since I've already read it (and it is terrific!)

Pen to Paper said...

Touch of Power is proving to be a really popular choice! I'm so chuffed - it was one of my favourites that I read in 2011!
I'm glad Charlaine Harris is proving to be popular too. She's definitely an author worth reading! My favourite author, in fact! :)

DreamyWeirdoo said...

You have awesome taste in books! (I can say that 'cause I have most of the ones in this giveaway!!) I haven't read Touch of Power though, and I really like to read it!

Suz said...

Thanks for this amazing giveaway! I would love to win Between Shades of Grey because I have read good things about it and can't wait to try it!

Rea said...

I already own 6 of the 9 books and I don't like Richelle Mead so that leaves Stray and Touch of Power. From those two I'd pick Touch of Power as I adored Poison Study (Magic and Fire Study not so much and I haven't read Opal's trilogy (yet)). I'm really hoping that Snyder will get back on track with this book as the synopsis makes it sound so great!

Good luck with your push to the big 1k!

Rea

Positively "The Book Theif"! My sister-in-law already read it and I know she adored it; I love the abstract concept of writing from death's point of view and it just seems too interesting to pass up! (:
