700: "The Magnificent Seven" Giveaway!


Credit: ESO/VLT
(This giveaway is brought to you by RXJ1856, brightest of the "Magnificent Seven" pulsars in Corona Australis)

An amazing milestone was reached this week, made possible by L. Diane Wolfe, Adam Timmins, Joy Ciaffoni, D. L. Hammons, David List, T. C. Mckee, and  Murees DupĂ©, for joining this blog (and everyone who is still on board here). You're all sorts of incredible. Thank you!

A celebration is in order, don't you think?

Here's what's happening. To enter, comment on this post. I'll keep it up all this week so I can visit ALL of my 700 awesome members. On Saturday the 28th, I'll randomly "scramble" the order of the comments made and give a prize to every SEVENTH commenter.

That's right - EVERY seventh commenter.

And the best part? You get to choose:

A) Any eBook of your choice (up to $10)
B) A chapter critique, for any chapter, (or)
C) A query evaluation from The Query Doctor.

You do not have to follow this blog to participate and this giveaway is open to the world. Bring it on!

Think you're lucky enough? Spread the word! If you tweet or blog about this giveaway (be sure to tag me so I can add you to the lottery), you will also qualify for:

A) A lunch with me, or (if you're outside of Utah - although if you're willing to fly me out, that's cool too),
B) A signed copy of Paranormalcy or The False Prince.

Sound good? Then let the awesomeness begin!

Thank you again for making this blogging experience a treasure. I can never fully give back what you all have done for me. Keep on writing. Keep on smiling.

I'm David, and the dice has been cast!

  1. So many times can I enter? Can I just make 100 separate comments to increase my chances?

    1. Yeah, it would be really rude for someone to flood a contest. Or if they say encouraged all their followers to flood a contest just to help their buddy out. Not that I'm thinking of anyone in particular...

    2. Nah. The system doesn't work like that. Once selected, their prize is set. Can't lay claim to another, until next time. :)

  13. Count me in on this here giveaway. I'd take the lunch or dinner thing and I'd just pay my own way if we could go someplace that has live music and a patio.

    By the way...have you heard of the free Sugarhouse Coffee jazz concerts that are taking place all summer? They are wonderful. They have a full band and a singer named Katrina. You can google Wasatch Jazz for more information.

    They are every Tuesday but not this Tuesday because of the holiday. Let me know if you would like to come cause I attend everytime they have a concert. Basically they start at 7:30 and go to about 9:30...it's a magical evening every week.

    1. Tuesday, of all the days of the week. Sounds awesome, but those evenings are permanently marked for other business. If there's a Tuesday evening off and I'll be in town, I'll remember this. :)

  68. Congratulations on reaching 700 (now 707)! My blog is still just shy of 100 but I don't do nearly enough networking. It's hard when there's so much writing, traveling, and parenting to do!

    I don't think we've met before so let me introduce myself. I'm Sean McLachlan and a fellow member of Alex's Ninja Army. I'm a full time freelance writer. My two big sugar daddies are the Gadling travel blog and Osprey Publishing. I've also indie published a novel and short story collection.

    I'm writing to you from one of my favorite places in the world: the Bodleian Library at Oxford University. We come to Oxford every summer to work. I love England, especially when it's bright and sunny like today!

    inkPageant looks interesting. I'll have to check it out.

    keep on blogging. Soon you'll break 1000!
