My apologies, in all the excitement of Father’s Day yesterday, I quite forgot to announce the first-round winners in the TFHMPF (Thanks for helping me promote Fur-Face) prize draw.
I used a fiendishly cunning selection method**
The winner in this first round is Cole DeNardo, who gets a free Quake eBook of her choice.
The two runners-up, Karen W. Newton (aka karen_w_newton) and Ed Greaves (aka temporus), will each receive a copy of the special ‘Fur-Face’ edition CD, featuring the music from the two Fur-Face trailers and my personal selection of favorite songs from my days as chief yodeler in that talentless trio known as GENTLEMAN JONES. It includes this, our signature song:
I’ll be contacting the winners to sort out their prizes.
Round 2 of the TFHMPF has already started.
If you’d like to take part here’s how it works:
Each draw features three prizes: The winner will receive a Quake eBook of his/her choice, the two runners up get the aforementioned special ‘Fur-Face’ edition GENTLEMAN JONES CD.
You can have your name entered in the TFHMPF draws by sending me a link to where you did one of the following things between June 1st and August 31st:
A: Promoted Fur-Face on your blog (please add a link to either the OmniLit page, the Amazon Kindle page and/or my website).
B: Featured a Fur-Face book trailer on your blog (just right click the screen to copy the embedded html):
C: Added Fur-Face to your ‘to-read’ list on Goodreads or equivalent (each venue counts as a separate entry).
D: Posted a good review of Fur-Face on Goodreads or Amazon or equivalent or your blog. Each venue counts as a separate entry, but please don’t do this unless you actually read and enjoyed the book
Once your name’s in the hat, it stays there for each subsequent draw, BUT, it gets better. You get an extra entry in the draw, every time you do one of the above, you can even do A and B multiple times, though only once per half-month. EVEN MORE EXCITING, if you’ve bought Fur-Face, those extra entries go in the main prize draw too!
Round 2 of the TFHMPF prize draw runs until June 30th – I’ll announce the winners on Sunday, July 4th (or, as my American friends call it, ‘Black Armband Day’ - on account of it being the anniversary of when they gave up the chance to be British).
** I took three important Fur-Face, dates – I used the day Echelon Press offered me an eBook contract (12/30/2009 ) for the winner. To select the runners-up, I used the day I signed the contract (01/13/2010), and the day the eBook was released (06/01/2010). I then converted all the dates into 8-digit numbers and divided each one by the number of THFMPF contest entries as of the June 15th cut-off date. The winners were the folks whose entry numbers corresponded with the remainders after I’d done my arithmetic.
