My Super Followers Contest

So it's my turn! I finally did it, I hit the big 100!!!!

I am quite excited to offer a contest for all my faithful followers.

I have no awesome books to offer you, but I do have two things:
1) $30
2) my amazing editing talents

So, here's what I'm offering: Your choice of either a $15 gift certificate, or a critique/edit of the first 30 pages (double-spaced) of something you've written/are writing.

I'm giving away at least two prizes. Maybe more.

Gift certificate to what, you may ask? That, my friend, is your choice. I'll be using the super gift certificate website giftcertificates.com. I issue you the $15 credit (in your email) and you choose what you want! Go ahead, take a look, imagine all the things you might be able to put on layaway with a $15 gift certificate. :)

As I'm quite lazy and usually only do the minimum requirements to get into a contest, all you have to do is BE A FOLLOWER and LEAVE A COMMENT. Then you are entered into my contest. Yippee! So easy.

HOWEVER, if you want to be entered one more time: Post about this contest on your blog/twitter page. And give me the link in the comments so I know about it. (Oh, each comment only counts one time.)

AND I'm holding another contest. Just for fun. Just to see if this outlandish goal is even possible. Be sure and tell everyone that you send my way to mention who sent them (you) in the comments. (Does that make sense?). If my blog gets to 150 followers, there will be a super prize (to be decided, if we get there) for both the 150th follower, and the person who sent them over.

Because of the above contest, I am TEMPORARILY deleting my followers page from the blog. Don't want everyone to linger around waiting for someone else to take #149. (I know you guys!)

Okay, I'm excited! Let's see if this works the way I hope it does. Both contests are open until Saturday, April 3.

Sweet tooth status: Spent $60 on Easter candy. (That's why the gift certificates are so cheap. Sorry.)

Thanks, Christine! I'm doing well...feeling kind of fat. Can't be helped after all the sweets, I guess.

Glad to know you, Annie!!!

Congrats on the followers and thanks for the giveaway. I'll put up a blog post soon. You'll see it because you know where to find me. :)

Tamara Hart Heiner said...

Gotcha, MT! Thanks for following!

How long did it take you to reach 100, Jen? Two weeks? lol

Oh, have fun, Lynette! That sounds wonderful!

Thanks, Terresa. Sure makes me feel special!

Jen said...

Haha you're a riot Tamara!!! Everyone asks me that, I'm really not sure how I came about so many followers, I guess they just realized how cool I was (just kidding)! I hadn't expected to have such a great hit but I'm loving everyone I have been able to meet!!

Tamara Hart Heiner said...

That's awesome, Jen. I'm way impressed. Go you.

Krista said...

Happy 100! I think I started following you (finally) just a few days ago, though I always read your comments on the blogs I follow. Thanks for the chance to win!
I'm Tweeting this, too.

Jemi Fraser said...

Tamara Hart Heiner said...

Glad you love it, SB!

EP said...

Hey, I saw you on sarahjayne's "Writing in the Wilderness" blog. Loved your comment about basically overthinking things (4/1/10 entry).

Congratulations on your novel.

Tamara Hart Heiner said...

Hi EP! Whew, I'm so glad you liked it. I worried about sticking that out there. I doubt Stephen King or Jane Austen ever worried about picking up a 'writing a novel' handbook. I'm afraid we all get brainwashed into trying to match our novels to formulas when we should just WRITE.

Jo Lightfoot said...

Tamara, I have enjoyed your tweets, your blog, and your progress with the book. I tweeted for you @everydaypoet.

Emailman said...

Man! Why am I always the last person to know anything...lol...I'm SO slow! Awesome idea, Tamara! I will try to blog this for you if I get the time.

I'm not worried about winning, I just wanna see you hit 150 followers :)

Elisa said...

holy cow, 60 buckeroos on CANDY?!?! I'll bet your hubby is in candy heaven!!!! (well, assuming you saved him some. :)

I follow you. I want gift certificates. Another match made in heaven.

TerryLynnJohnson said...

Ooh, I saw this contest over at unedited. New follower. Would love a crit. Count me in!

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

Congrats on reaching 100 followers! I found you by way of Jen @ Unedited. Hope you have a happy Easter!

Tamara Hart Heiner said...

Elisa--yeah, Mark's pretty happy. I'm sharing the candy with him. :)

Terry and Nicole--thanks for coming over! Gotcha counted!
