Devil's Nightmare

This month my website celebrated two years of existence, so I decided to thank my readers by giving away a couple of autographed copies of Devil’s Nightmare and a $20 Amazon gift card. There were 13 eligible comments on my Two-Year Anniversary Giveaway post. I used a very sophisticated and highly technically advanced process in order to select the two lucky winners of the autographed copies of Devil’s Nightmare and $20 gift card.

First, I had to compile the data with patented and very efficient data mining tools.

Phase 1

Then, I had to filter and separate all of that information in preparation for the very high-tech process of actually selecting my two winners.

Phase 2

After the filtering and separation process I needed to apply some very specialized encryption techniques prior to the drawing.

Phase 3

As soon as I had all of my data entered, filtered, encrypted and processed, all of the entries needed to be stored for safekeeping until it was time for the drawing.

Phase 4

Then it was time for the actual drawing. Sure, I could have used, but what would have been the fun in that? So, I utilized a secret third party selection agency. Here is a photo of that third party agent (Agent Mom) on the USS Lexington.


And the winners are Beau Brown and @RescueCherry:

Both winners have already been contacted and their books will be shipped via snail mail within the week. But wait! There was also a $20 Amazon gift card up for grabs. After another drawing (utilizing the same high-tech and patented selection process) I had Agent Mom draw the winner . . .

@WriterGirl007 is the lucky winner of the $20 Amazon gift card! Sending the gift card was easy too since Amazon also has a very high-tech way of doing so via email, although they don’t have anything on my system. Yeah, Amazon could probably learn a thing or two from my groundbreaking contest winner selection system.

Congratulations to Beau Brown and Sheri M. (a.k.a. @RescueCherry) for winning the autographed books. I hope you enjoy reading Devil’s Nightmare! And congratulations to WriterGirl007 for winning the $20 gift card (who decided to buy both of my books) :-). Enjoy!

There will be other giveaways in the future, so be sure to to follow this site or subscribe via email (sidebar to the left) for future announcements.

Have a safe Memorial Day!

Devil's Nightmare

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

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.
