If you listened to The Delivery Tuesday night, you already know that my birthday is fast approaching and that I want to give a few things away to celebrate it. Yes, I know. Most bloggers and podcasters give away stuff so you’ll like their Facebook pages, sign up for their mailing lists, follow them on twitter, or heart them on Instagram or Pinterest. But like the lady said, I ain’t got time for that. I have some Audible audiobooks and I feel like giving away a few presents to celebrate my birthday. Four, to be precise.
Here’s how it works. Send an e-mail to thesundriesshack [at] the gmail com place with the subject “Delivery Birthday Book”. Include your name, if it’s not already baked into your e-mail address and, if you remember to do so, tell me what book you want (peruse Audible’s catalog beforehand, just to make sure they have what you want). If you don’t tell me what book you want, I’ll have to e-mail you back and ask you, which will take more time.
The deadline is 11:59 PM on Sunday, April 28th, 2013. You don’t have much time. Hurry. On Monday, April 29th, I’ll take each entrant’s name and write it on a piece of paper. The pieces of paper will go, folded, into a hat. I’ll draw four names. Those winners will get the one-credit audiobook of their choice from Audible. That’s it. No like, favorite, follow, subscribe, or blog follow required. No purchase necessary. No donation demanded. I don’t get anything from Audible for doing this. Just send an e-mail. This isn’t a promotion; it’s a gift from me to you.
I need your e-mail address not only as your means of entry but so I can send out what is essentially your gift-certificate. If I can make it work, I’ll record a Vine video of the actual drawing, but understand I only get six seconds to do draw the names, so that may not work. But I will try. Oh, and if you don’t want your real name appearing in the Vine video, give me a Twitter handle. That should work, too.
Make sense? Clear enough? No hassles. Easy-peasy.
Of course, if you live in a place where such things aren’t legal, you can’t participate. Also, I’m keeping this as simple and transparent as possible so I don’t have to jump through a bazillion legal hoops. I want to give four people an audiobook to celebrate my birthday. Let’s not make a big production out of it!
Okay, so that that. Fire off your e-mail and watch my Twitter feed on Monday evening. That’s where I’ll post the Vine video, assuming I can make it work. If not, I’ll post the names/Twitter handles of the winners.
UPDATE: We have a winner!
Wait…a winner? One winner? Yep. I set up the World’s Easiest Giveaway and exactly one person decided to take me up on it. Congratulations to Susie!
I’ve decided, since I wanted to give away a few books, that Susie will get not one, but three audiobooks. Happy My Birthday to her.
