My Very First Contest

This contest is now closed. Thanks so much to everyone who entered and a big congratulations to the winner, Alyson Beecher!

So I finally got it together and put the Shadow Hills Facebook fan page up, and to celebrate I thought I would have a contest! I'm going to try and keep this as simple as possible, seeing as how I really have no idea what I am doing. I guess the first thing everyone would like to know is: what are the prizes?

The winner will receive all of the following:

One ARC of The Dark Divine by fellow Egmont author Bree Despain.

One hard copy of the First Chapter of Shadow Hills. (Which won't be up on my website until Febuary so you will be in the know. ;)

Two Shadow Hills buttons and two Shadow Hills magnets

Three signed Shadow Hills bookmarks.

To be entered for the contest you have to be 13 yrs of age or older and you need to have a US shipping address (I will be holding some international contests closer to the release of Shadow Hills). You will also need a total of three points, and this is how you get 'em:

You are already a follower of my Keep Up With Me blog or you become a follower= +1 point

You are already a follower of my twitter or you become a follower= +1 point

You become a fan of the Shadow Hills Facebook Page= +1 point

You post a twitter update about this contest= +1 point

The comment you leave on this post is your entry. To make it all official-like, please include your name (or alias, if that is the way you work), what combo created your three points, and your email address so I can contact you if you win. The contest will be open until next Friday, December the 11th. I will either use a random number generator or pick names out of a hat---whichever seems easier to me at the time. Once I have a winner, I will email them within 72 hrs, and then they will have 72 hrs to get back to me with an address so I can send them their awesome prizes!
