Winners of the TFHMPF prize draw – 1 of 6

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 [info]karen_w_newton) and Ed Greaves (aka [info]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.

It was actually the British who did not allow us to remain British.
As we could not be British-Americans,
we became independent Americans.

But don't let that note dampen your personal celebrations.

And there was me thinking it was you folks who did all the revolting :P

That's because the British are so polite.
They'd never say Americans are revolting.
At worst, they would suggest that we're a bit tacky.

BTW, much as I love prizes and the excitement of contests,
I urge people to buy Fur-Face because I like you,
and think you've written a good book.
Having made your acquaintance is so highly rewarding
that anything else can only be anti-climactic.

Well, thank you :)

You're welcome. If I win a prize by co-incidence, I won't refuse to accept it.
Unless you've already given one to Ernest Hemingway.

Wow, I won something! Cool!

Congrats, Karen :)

If you would let me know your postal address (via jon@acatofninetales.com), I'll mail the CD out to you later in the week, and thanks again for helping me promote Fur-Face :)

Oooo....I won a CD. :)
Jun. 21st, 2010 03:42 pm (UTC)
That's how it starts "Oooo....I won a CD," then later there's running and screaming. :)

Oops, forgot to say that if you let me know your postal address (via jon@acatofninetales.com), I'll mail the CD out to you later in the week, and as with Karen and everyone else who's helping me promote Fur-Face, thanks again. I appreciate it :)
