Contest News

Well, I have bad news and I have good news.
The bad news is, only two people (only two?!) entered my review contest. Sad face. (Note to self: back to school is probably the number one worst time to host a contest.)
The good news is, this means I'm extending the deadline! The contest will now be open until either we have a minimum of sixteen reviews (you know, title = book happy number... or something) or midnight September 30, whichever comes first. If we reach the sixteen-reviews mark, the winners will be chosen and awarded as originally planned. If we do not, the contest will be called off. (Oh noes! Please don't make me do that!)
As a thank-you to the two lovely ladies who actually did enter, I'll be sending them a little surprise after the contest ends regardless of how this goes down.
To see the original contest rules (all of which still apply, except the deadline) check out this post:

The Instructions

2. Read my book. According to most of my readers, this can easily be done in a day or two. I believe them. It's astonishingly short, even for me.
3. Write a review of my book. See rules below.
4. Post review on one of the rules-approved websites.
5. Come back here and comment on this post with a link to your review by August 27.
Ta-da! You're entered for one of two prize packs. One winner will be chosen by me -- I'll consider the quality of …
