200 GIVEAWAY: "Witch Door Janitors!"

 (This giveaway is brought to you by a small planet, somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse)

Something's not right here. *Glance to the right* Where did all these awesome members come from?  So cool!

I've enjoyed getting to know each and every one of you, and I look forward to learning even more. As a deep and personal THANK YOU for everyone who has made this milestone possible, I have a few gifts in store.

I will raffle away THREE DEBUT BOOKS, each from local authors in my area. These reads include the following:
(Descriptions from

Witch Song - (Paperback)
The world is changing. Once, Witch Song controlled everything from the winds to the shifting of the seasons--but not anymore. All the Witches are gone, taken captive by a traitor. All but Brusenna. As the echo of their songs fade, the traitor grows stronger. Now she is coming for Brusenna...
The Hourglass Door - (Signed)
His past. Her future. Can love bring them together in time? Abby's senior year of high school is textbook perfect: She has a handsome and attentive boyfriend, good friends, good grades, and plans to attend college next year. But when she meets Dante Alexander...
Janitors - (Hardback) 
Have you ever fallen asleep during math class? Are you easily distracted while listening to your English teacher? Do you find yourself completely uninterested in geography? Well, it may not be your fault. The janitors at Welcher Elementary know a secret...
 The rules for entering this giveaway are:

- Follow this blog.

- Leave a comment on this post.

- Depending on what book you'd like a chance at, say "Witch," "Door," or "Janitors" when you comment (if you want a stab at all of them, say, "Witch Door Janitors!").

- Link this giveaway on your next blog post for a second entry. Facebook it for a third (before August 31st).

I will draw three names and announce the winners from three different hats (cause I'm old school like that).

If you miss the draw, don't panic! I will offer a 250 word or a query critique to ANYONE who wants one (for one week). Send whatever (except naughty stuff). You can find my email here (I ask that you post your words/ query in the email--I will not open attachments).

When we get to 400, I'll throw a stellar giveaway!

Again, this wouldn't be possible without YOU! Thank you for taking the time to revisit and read my ramblings. (This giveaway does include members from overseas).

Spread the word, everybody, and good luck!

I'm David, and Middle School dreams are...frightful.


  1. Congrats David! Your blog is so awesome you'll be at 300 in no time!

    Door please :)

  2. Woohoo! Almost 300? That's amazing David! Congrats.

    I have the last two, so I'll have to say Witches.

  3. Oh, and I gave you a shout out on my blog :)

  4. OMG!! I love your blog soo much!! I guess I'll say Door! :D I'm also linking this to my next blog post on Life is Good.

  5. I already have Witch Song, but I'm game for the other two. Consider me in on this.

  6. Okay... too hard to decide so I'm going to say "WITCH DOOR JANITORS!" :) I will post this on my blog tomorrow and share it on FB and twitter too!

    I am way excited for you! YAY for having awesome followers!

  7. Congrats on all the followers! Witch please! :)

  8. It's great your blog is gaining so many followers; you really deserve it. It's a great site.

    Witch Door.

  9. Some nice selections, David! And I say to you, "Witch Door Janitors!"

  10. Ooooo ... I have the first two books already, but I've been wanting Janitors.

    Already a follower.

  11. You need to get Witch signed . . . I'm just sayin'

  12. Alright, sounds pretty rad! But I got to say the Betelgeuse comment made me crack up:)

  13. With please! I'm in love with that cover art! Sounds like a great contest!

  14. Following, and Witch Door Janitors, but heavy on the Janitors!

    Cool giveaway, and congratulations on reaching 200 followers!

  15. Betelgeuse - didn't that go supernova? Oh, oh, your small planet may need to move!

    congrats on all the new followers! And, wow, what great awards. I'm taking advantage of the query critique... I really struggle with those.

    Oh, and, JANITORS! (though the other two look really good too, but I love hardback books.)

    I'll try not to forget about going for the second and third entries, but I'm terribly forgetful, and I still have a mental block when it comes to FB.

  16. I want all those books! No joke--they're on my to read list. So witchdoorjanitors.

    Nice to meet you crusader! (Isn't it great meeting new writers?)

  17. Great post! Great Giveaway. Janitors. (Well, they all sound good, but I'll control myself.) I'll have to wait for my next post to mention it on my blog (probably Friday) but I'm going over to FaceBook right now to post it. Is that critique a separate offer? If so, I do have something I'd like you to critique.

    Congratulations on so many followers. But then, your blog is always such a good read.

  18. Awesome! And congrats!! Witch, please. And serious on the critique? You rock.

  19. Congratulations on the followers! :)

  20. Witch Janitors! (That would make a great title) I already have Door. I already have Janitors, too but we have been trying to share it around the house for a while, so an extra copy would be heavenly.

    I'll FB it right now and I'll post it on my blog on Sunday :)

    Congrats David!

  21. Poor planet, it doesn't have a Janitors Witch Door to escape through when Betelgeuse finally goes (which I hate that it'll take 640 light-years just for the blip of the event to GET HERE!)

  22. Great turnout so far. Excellent! If you plan on Facebooking or blogging about this giveaway, let me know. Otherwise I'll have to stalk all your posts for a week to see if you have (insert evil laugh here). Thank you everyone!

    Kelly - Thanks for the shout-out! You rock!

    Amber - I'll get back to you on that ;)

    Deirdra - Wow! That just made my day! Thank you so much. I've always enjoyed your art. Now I get to have a piece of it? Sweet! I'll find a place to hang it up in due time.

  23. David Thank you for dropping by and say hi and your kind words for my little Miss Foxy.
    I look forward to getting to know you more through out the Campaign.

    Witch door Janitor...hmmm, sounds like a good title.

  24. When I read the title of your post I couldn't help thinking that Witch Door Janitor was an odd name for a book :)

    You didn't mention it (or I missed it), but I'm going to assume that as I'm a UK resident I'm not eligible. I'll be hitting up my local library for The Hourglass Door if it's available though :)

  25. Great giveaway! Thanks!
