Two-Year Anniversary Giveway

2-year anniversary-WordpressI just received notification via the WordPress toolbar that my site has been up and running for exactly two years now. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a couple of years since I started SharkbaitWrites.com.

So, what does one do to celebrate a two-year anniversary? I thought about it for a few minutes while listening to the Skyrim radio station I set up on Pandora and decided I would give away a couple of copies of Devil’s Nightmare. I’m not talking e-books either. I’m talking about a real physical you-can-smell-the paper-and-even-get-a-paper-cut type of book!

So how should I go about selecting a reader for this precious prize? Well, I could make it all complicated and make you click a bunch of buttons with one of those auto-generated promo tools (which would take me forever to figure out how to get working on this site anyway) or I could ask you to help me promote my book with tweets on Twitter or posts on Facebook, etc. Or . . . I could simply ask you why you should get a free copy of Devil’s Nightmare. Yeah, I think we’ll go with that.

Devil's Nightmare 3D Book Cover2So, here it goes . . . If you would like a FREE 6×9 paperback copy of Devil’s Nightmare personalized and autographed simply tell me in the comments below and you’ll be entered for the drawing. There is only one stipulation, though. I can only mail within the U.S. (except Alaska and Hawaii) due to shipping costs. Hey, I’m a poor author, remember? 🙂

Every contest entry comment will be numbered (you can only enter once) and the winner will be selected randomly using the old school method of names written on pieces of paper and drawn from a hat. The five most creative entries will also go into a separate drawing for a $20 Amazon gift card, but I know you’re really going to enter for the book, right? 🙂

Winners for the free books and gift card will be picked on Saturday, May 25 and announced on Sunday, May 26. So, if you aren’t following this blog already be sure to subscribe via email on the sidebar or click the follow button.

I look forward to reading your entries and good luck! Below is a trailer for Devil’s Nightmare.

    #13 – I believe all great books should be had in print, versus digital. I loved reading this novel on my Kindle, and I would be grateful to win a paperback copy!

    #8 – Congrats, Rob. Since I normally live so far away we’ll have to exchange signed copies of our books when I get to Texas. They could be worth millions one day. Great job with your blog and interviews!
