September Drawing!

I told you I was cooking up something good--and I did! Normally the drawings I hold don't require anything of you except a comment to my blog. Some authors ask you to answer questions about their books, etc.. But this time there is a requirement for entry.

SEPTEMBER DRAWING RULES:
In order to qualify for the September drawing you must invite a friend to either:
a. sign up for my online newsletter or
b. visit my blog and post a comment

As soon as your friend does one of those two things, email me at SaintJohn@aol.com and let me know it was you who sent them, and I will place your name in the newly-emptied-and-ready-for more-fun fish bowl! At the end of September, I will draw one name and that person will receive:

~ a vintage gold-trimmed Enesco cup & saucer with a violet motif from my personal collection
~ a package of Gormly's Traditional English Raspberry Almond Scone Mix and
~ 3 signed Special Editions
* THE TRUTH ABOUT TOBY
* CHARLIE'S ANGELS
* NICK ALL NIGHT



When my mom told me she'd discovered doubles among her CSJ collection and asked me if I wanted to give them to someone, I replied, "I sure do!"

Q. Can you invite more than one friend and have your name entered more than once!
A. Of course!

Q. Can your friend invite a friend and enter her name, too?
A. Of course!

Q. If you've already won a previous drawing, are you eligible?
A. Yes!

Q. Can you drink tea from this cup?
A. I promise to dust before mailing.

Q. Do I love my readers?
A. Duh.

So, make a list of your reader friends and let them know about the good times rolling here.
Readers can sign up for my newsletter two ways: right here at the bottom of this page...
or from my website: http://www.tlt.com.authors.cstjohn.htm

  1. Have those 3 books signed already, BUT could gift to my sister and LOVE violets & any purple flowers so cup/set would have special sentiment coming from your shelf, raspberry is my favorite flavor (tied with peach) and don't often get scones even with Robert being English. So I better get crackin'!!
    Let's see how good we are at promoting on the internet grapevine; we're doing our friends & family a favor by introducing them to CSJ, right ladies? Finished His Secondhand Wife last night. You can tell how much I identify with the experiences by how many pages I dog-ear--30 of 296 means it touched me!! Now to read Sweet Annie, even if out of sequence.

  8. I have to say this is a great idea to get the word out there about your books. I would never have know about them if a friend hadn't emailed to leave a comment for her. Now I'm headed out for someone to do it for me!
