When it came time to do the reveal of Meghan’s House of Books, I really wasn’t sure HOW to do it. I mean, I could just post a bunch of stuff on my private page and *hope* everyone noticed, but I wanted something *more* than just that… so I created an event on Facebook and called it my Housewarming Party, a joke my mom and I had been making since we first came up with the new name.
After a lot of consideration, I decided that my only “game” for the party would be a way for people who came (I invited people on my list, as well as put it on Twitter) to win a $25 gift card, with a runner-up prize of these really cool Halloween bookmarks I found.
I think it was a relatively easy giveaway. There were ten options: Like the Instagram post or Twitter post that revealed the new name of the blog (there were three on each, and you had to follow the page, so that right there is 6 entries if you did all of them – bonus points for retweeting from one of the two new accounts, which makes this 8 entries), leave a comment on my first blog post over here, and follow this blog.
The winner of the $25 Amazon Gift Card is <drum roll>
The runner-up prize of Halloween bookmarks goes to
I know I’m not the only one who feels this way about things – there are a lot of people out there who suffer from anxiety – but five minutes into the invites being sent, and no one saying they were going, I damn near went and deleted the whole thing haha. I ended up having 40 people say they were going… and quite a few of those were in the first hour.
As a thank you for this, I decided to do an extra surprise giveaway for the people that took the time out of their busy day to look in on it all. The prize for this was also a set of Halloween bookmarks.
And the winner is
Jon M. Jefferson!!
My mom was the one who pulled the names out of the bowls (she says y’all can thank her with monetary donations haha), and liked it so much that she suggested ANOTHER giveaway.
This one goes on from… we’ll say yesterday, since that’s when the Halloween Extravaganza began… until it ends sometime in January.
To enter this giveaway, also for a $25 gift card, with two runner-up prizes of Halloween bookmarks:
- Like any of the Halloween Extravaganza Tweets on @Raiyine, @megHanHblogs, and @megHanHedits (you have to also follow the account) on Twitter. Each like of a post is an entry, which means that you have hundreds of opportunities, as there are 140 authors signed up to take part in this, plus the extra Halloween Extravaganza posts that will be thrown in.
- Like any of the Halloween Extravaganza posts on @Raiyine, @megHanHblogs, and @megHanHedits (you also have to follow the account) on Instagram. Each like of a post is an entry, which again means that you have hundreds of opportunities, as there are 140 authors signed up to take part in this, plus the extra Halloween Extravaganza posts that will be thrown in.
- Extra bonus entries if you: Follow Meghan’s House of Books and Follow MeghanH Editing here on WordPress (yes, following via email counts).
At the end of the event, I will fill up a bowl full of all the names and, again, my mother will choose THREE names – one for a $25 Amazon gift card, and two for a set of Halloween bookmarks each. (They’re actually really cool bookmarks.)
I want to say thank you again to everyone who has shown me support during this transition. Starting this new book blog is huge for me, and knowing that I have y’all there in my corner really means so much to me.
I hope you enjoy this year’s line up. You don’t want to miss a single one!
