The bribery continues


First off, let me say that I really thought I was through bribing blog readers to do random things. I mean, I never intended this blog to be like those What-would-you-do-for-a-Klondike-bar commercials. Although it isn't readily apparent, I have more class than that . . . at least some of the time.

But this time what I'm asking you to do will be really easy. Two seconds of your time.

My engaged daughter called me yesterday to tell me she was chosen as one of the five finalists for a wedding give-away and asked me to ask my friends to vote for her and the son-in-law-apparent. (You know you want to see his picture anyway)

Sooo in a shameless attempt to buy votes I'll be giving away paperbacks of My Fair Godmother (because I have a ton of them) Vote. Leave a comment telling me you did. And I'll give-away a copy of MFG for every four comments I get. In other words, if I have 20 commenters, I'll give away 5 copies of the book. Your chances are good--so take 2 seconds and vote for Asenath and Alex--number 4 at this link:

ops--the voting doesn't actually have their picture. To see that go to: http://inspiredweddinggiveaway.blogspot.com/
and scroll down to number four. Why does my daughter appear to be checking to see if her fiance has a heartbeat? I have no idea, but there are rumors of vampirism . . .

Sooo fun! What do they get if they win? A whole wedding? Well good luck to them! I wish them all the best! And this was a fun, shameless give-away! Thank you!

I love the cover of your book and would love to read it. Glad that even you aren't above shameless. Gives me hope.

I already voted--was it yesterday?--but you don't need to enter me in the drawing because I already own My Fair Godmother. What a fun book! I'm currently reading My Unfair Godmother, and it is absolutely awesome. Robin Hood and his Merry Men . . . hahaha! I'm loving it.

Louise Bates said...

Wedding giveaways are the best! I always vote for those. A chance for a book giveaway is just icing on the cake :-)

Janelle said...

I already have this one, but I voted anyway! :)

Marsha Ward said...

I voted, but also didn't see any photo. The site seems to be only a form builder.

Good luck to me in getting those stupid "prove I'm not a robot" letters right.

Told you so. I have to do it again!

Maybe the third try will do it.

Nope. I'll try a fourth time, but that's it! I know I'm typing what I see correctly.

PM said...

I think I screwed up - my comment never showed up. ANYHOW...

Carolyn said...

Ooo! Exciting! Good luck to your daughter and never feel bad about shameless giveaways ;) I'd love a copy of My Fair Godmother!

Crystal R. said...

Rachelle said...

I voted! And because I am a name nerd who loves investigating new names, will you tell me how you pronounce Asenath and where the name came from? I know curiosity kills, but I just can't help it! :)

Janette Rallison said...

Growing up, I knew an Asenath (She was much older than I was, but as soon as I heard the name I liked it. I never realized that it was such a rare name until I named my daughter it and no one had ever heard of it.)It's from the Bible. She was the wife of Joseph who was sold into Egypt.

It's pronounced U-sen-ath, with the accent on the sen. At least that's how every Asenath I've ever met pronounces it. (A total of three.) Every movie anyone has ever made of the Joseph story always butchers the name.

Rose said...

Hello!
Bribery doesn't matter, you know, since what you're doing is just gonna make poeple happy. :D

I'd like to win your book. Does it matter that you'd have to send it to NZ if I win? Hope not. Never read it but it looks great!

Susan said...

Voted! I agree about the cool name.
We chose names for our girls that were a bit out of the way. It wasn't our fault that a movie star made one of their names popular after she was born!
Hope I win!
