Holy giveaway!

THIS GIVEAWAY ENDED 09/22

 

Look!

That’s me, holding my books at a Barnes & Noble. Awesome doesn’t begin to describe how that felt, so thank all of you for making this happen.

I have been receiving pics of books at some of the stores who shelved them a bit early.  They aren’t due to be released until Tuesday the 18th, so if you can’t find them yet, no worries.

I so love seeing all the different pics at all the different bookstores. Unfortunately, I live way out in BFE and we had to drive two hours just to find them.  I thought it would be cool, since I obviously can’t visit EVERY bookstore, to have you all email your pics in so I can scrapbook them. (colleenhoover@live.com)  And you won’t be doing it in vain…your pic will be an extra entry into one of the prizes for the MOTHER OF ALL GIVEAWAYS.

God, I hope I’m not building it up too much. ;)

Prizes, prizes, prizes. I know that’s what you want, so let me lay it out for you.

TEN WINNERS OF SIGNED COPIES OF THE ATRIA BOOKS EDITION OF BOTH SLAMMED AND POINT OF RETREAT

ONE WINNER OF A NOOK COLOR

ONE WINNER OF A KINDLE FIRE HD

ONE WINNER OF AN IPAD

ONE WINNER OF MY BLIND PIGLET NAMED HAZEL

Okay, so the pig isn’t really one of the prizes.  I just wanted to show her off because I love her so darn much.

How do you enter?  That’s easy.  Just post a link for the release of the paperbacks on your facebook or twitter, then come back here to this blog and leave a comment with where you posted the link.  Just copy and paste this:  http://colleenhoover.com/signed-books/

If you are international and can’t post a paperback link, simply post a link for the ebooks.

Giveaway for all prizes open to international residents as well. 

CHANCE FOR BONUS ENTRIES:

For extra entries into the giveaway, email me (colleenhoover@live.com) a pic of the books at your local bookstore.  Most of them won’t have them until Tuesday.  I’d love to get as many pics as possible to add to the scrapbook, since my husband refuses to drive me to every bookstore in the country. (I know!)

All winners and their prizes will be chosen at random on Saturday, September 22nd.  Plenty of time to enter and share!

Oh, and one more thing.  I no longer have the option for people to purchase signed books on my website, but I’ve been receiving emails asking how people can get their books signed.  I’ll be having a contest next week for people who buy the new ATRIA BOOKS editions to win free shipping in order to get the books to me for signing.  I will announce more on that around the 24th, so make sure you buy your paperback copies! :D

To break it down.

10 winners of both signed books.

1 Kindle Fire HD winner.

1 Nook Color winner.

1 ipad winner.

Nobody gets Hazel, though.

  9. Woo hoo!!!! on my FB page!!! http://www.facebook.com/#!/francine.richetti. and if i could put it on a marquee somewhere i would!

    You are incredible! Congrats! and please keep writing! Please!!!!!! ;)

  10. Here is my share on Twitter. I hope I did it right! I am super excited to read these books. I havent read either one, but I have heard only great things about them.

  11. Ok, I posted the link to your fabulous books to my facebook page and I tagged you in it to make sure you knew I had done it! And, I know she is not part of your freaking butterflying kick ass giveaway, but Hazel is so butterflying cute that I’d take her as a prize! Thanks for the awesomeness that is your giveaway!

  12. Thank you so much for writing Slammed! It got me reading again. It was one of the first books I have read in 3 years and it started me off on a 30 book reading binge since Please tell me there will be a sequel to Point of Retreat!

  13. Posted on Fb!! Read the books a second time around and I fell in love with the characters and storyline all over again. Congratulations on your success!!

  14. I loved Slammed and Point of Retreat so much that I couldn’t get into anything else for a few weeks after finishing them! I love you Collen!

  15. Hi Colleen, I posted your link on my Facebook page. I really enjoyed Slammed, and I could not stop reading late into the night. Layken and Will’s story will always be with me forever, and I am glad authors like you still write about young and honest love, especially when riddled with complications (like ex-girlfriends and typical issues of trust). I thought the poetry added a wonderful rhythm to the story, and I liked that you were so consistent in using poetry to convey messages. Slammed is a very well-written book. Congratulations on your success now! You deserve it!

I mean, unfortunately, I have this thing called a job that takes up quite a few hours of my day, but zomg! When I’m on break I’m reading! lol :D Now I have to figure out how to take a picture of myself and the book without looking utterly ridiculous, but I guess that’d be okay too hahahaha

  37. Awesome giveaway Colleen!!! Wish we had a bookshop that stocked these but doubtable in New Zealand!! Shared on FB, so exciting for you, all the best and your going to get millions of sales!

  38. I am so looking forward to reading one of your books. Recently I started searching for new authors to read, (new to me) and am so happy I did. I am finding some of you are just amazing and thanks for the opportunity to read one of your books.

  39. I just shared your good news about your books coming out in paper book. I am thrilled for you! You have such a gift. I’m grateful you’re sharing it with us!! I posted the good news on my Facebook page…Dianne Gairing Alexander!

  40. Left a link on my facebook and mtv twitter. I have been so excited.for these books to come out. It was my birthday yesterday so I told.my husband we had to go get them when they come out!

  41. Congrats Colleen! I didn’t ever think that I was going to be able to post a comment. I tried so many times to put a comment through, but the page was acting wonky for me. Thanks so much for the awesome giveaway! Crossing my fingers!!!

  42. I just posted to my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/sheri.o.bergman . I loved your books so so butterflying much! In fact, back on May 30th, when I finished them both, I posted a link to your books, just because I wanted to share with all my friends. This love story, seriously rocked me to my core. I just read the first two chapter teaser for This Girl (thank you) and I can not wait for this book. Thanks for sharing your amazing stories. ;-)

    1. Funny, but in response to the word of mouth comment I made, I went to a concert on Tuesday and randomly met an 8th grade English teacher. I actually recommended her to read “Slammed” as potential reading material for her class!!! She had never heard of your book yet and is loves to hear about new material. I just thought I’d share : )

  43. I posted your link to my facebook and twitter accounts. Just wanted to thank you for two amazing books and wish you great success!

  44. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! I will definitely be running down my indie bookstore to see if they have copies. While I wait to do that, here’s my share link from Twitter:

    Thanks for the AWESOME giveaway!

  45. Congratulations! and Thank you! for sharing this profound story with us. Can’t wait for book #3.
    Posted on my facebook page (ana.hernandez.3551380@facebook.com) & twitter as well (@amh1980).

  46. Colleen, my cousin…Tara Sivec…oh yeah I’m claiming her :) turned me onto your books! They were absolutely amazing!!!! Posted them on FB!

  47. Posted on FB! Congratulations!!!! Still telling everyone I know about them!! Received my signed copies and will cherish them forever! Now I need to get another set so I can pick ‘em up and read them anytime I want…don’t want to mess up the signed ones lol!!

  48. WOW How many entries already O.O https://twitter.com/LPofImagination/status/247688889773457408 Posted on my twitter. Ha, and Colleen I literally laughed for 5 minutes when I saw the picture of your piglet up for a prize. Heh. + it is crazy your husband won’t agree to drive you across the world to see your books in different countries. I mean.. it’s not like the Earth is big or anything. Saturn is much, much bigger. He should be glad he doesn’t have to drive you around there. It’s much colder there, too. So I get where you’re coming from ;) Have a great day, you lovely woman! *looks around* Is This Girl here already? *sighs* I wish it were. Can’t wait to hear more from Will and Layken.

  49. Colleen– I loved these books and tell anyone who will listen. Just posted it on my Facebook wall—Kathleen McHugh Carey

  50. So ecstatic for you!! Your books are wonderful and I can’t wait to read more of everything you write!! I have posted links on my FB and Twitter and will also be posting tomorrow on my website http://www.bookpusher.com

    http://www.facebook.com/thebookpusher

    Thank you for all your wonderful giveaways!!

  51. Shared on my FB. Truly two of my favorite reads this summer, and I’ve told so many people so. Looking forward to meeting Holder and hearing more of Will next year!!

  52. I have read both books several times already and have been telling all my friends to check them out. I shared your link on my FB page this morning.

  53. Woaaah. What a nice way to start our Monday! Thanks so much for this, Colleen! :D I’m so so so happy that your books are starting to get appreciated by a lot more people! It deserve all the butterflies in this world! And I seriously can’t wait for book 3! I’ve been praying so hard to God that time will pass by so quickly just so I’ll be able to read it! I butterflying love you, your books, Will and Lake. <3

    Here's the link: https://twitter.com/franchie15/status/247644489995403264

  54. Whoo hoo! I posted on FB, all my myself. This is an accomplishment bc I know jack all about technology. It took me like 15 mins, but I did it! Getting the knowledge of your books out was well worth it though.

  55. Yeah Colleen, this is one butterflying giveaway! Can I just choose? I want to choose my chances for just the signed books, I would love to have a copy of your books autographed for my special books shelf, that is going to be in my new special new to me farmhouse that all the hoops have burned to the ground and we are finally closing on within the next 2-3 weeks! So, for all my chances, just in for the books, give the gift of your other amazing gifts to other people. and Congrats! all that hard work, and you butterflying deserve it! you are truly special :D

    I can’t remember how many times I recommended the books.(Twitter, Facebook, tumblr, instagram, Getglue etc) I just think it should be part of everyone’s lives. I didn’t concern of whether they’d like it or not cause I just knew they would. I really would love to win the signed books. They just seem more precious to be had.

  58. So happy for you! I posted the paperback link on my Facebook and on my blog!! You deserve all the success that comes your way!
