Grand Prize & Spring Fling Blog Tour Day 9

UPDATE: I am sorry, but I’m going to have to end the Grand Prize tonight, Monday 17th May, at midnight. I’ve realized that there are so many entries it is going to take me forever to get all your names into the drawing and tomorrow I go on my book tour. If you ever hope to get your prize, I’m going to have to end it tonight. Hope you don’t mind! And thanks for entering. The Debut Book Giveaway will still go through Tuesday night.

Today I’m over at Reading Rocks for Day 9 of the Spring Fling Blog Tour. I hope you’ve been having fun skipping around the internet with me each day.

Update! My book has been spotted in a book store! Thanks to Bri Meets Books for the picture!Rh in bookstore

As we’re heading into launch week, the posts are going to get more fun here, and the prizes are something you won’t want to miss. Speaking of prizes, I’ve been mentioning that every comment you leave here between May 1-May 18th gives you an entry into the Grand Prize, but I haven’t told you what’s in the Grand Prize, have I? Today seems as good a day as any to let you in on it!


The Grand Prize is going to be a Restoring Harmony tote bag stuffed with all kinds of goodies. Here’s what you’ll find (and there might even be a few surprises).

A $20 giftcard to Island Books (they have free shipping!)

2 RH magnets (one to keep, one to give away)

RH post-it notes

A CD of the music from Restoring Harmony

3 surprise ARCs from Penguin

Hush Money – a CD of Victor Anthony’s music

5 packets of organic vegetable seeds

Local island chocolate

As a special bonus, every comment left on this particular post, earns 5 entries instead of the usual one! Tweet it or post about on Facebook or your blog, and earn 5 more (just let me know in your comment!) for a total of 10 possible points today. This contest is open until May 18th to anyone with a Canadian or U.S. mailing address. Thanks for playing!


Wow, how cool!
I love how seeds are part of the prize. 🙂
Have a lovely rest of the day!
Love, Hannah

I wish you the best of luck for your launch this week. Sounds like a fascinating book. Might have to add it to my classroom library. All the best.

I tweeted about your contest by the way. Great stuff.


For those of you in Canada, if you win, I’ll get you a Canadian indie bookstore gift card of your choice since Island Books is in the US.

I cannot wait for Restoring Harmony 🙂

I tweeted (http://twitter.com/aviatrixflyer) and blogged this! Really looking forward to reading the book! Happy Mother’s Day.

I’m signed up to buy multiple copies as soon as it’s out! And goodness, that’s amazing that RH has already been spotted at a bookstore. Tell them to turn the book so that everyone can see the beautiful cover. That’s what I plan to do, whenever I am in a bookstore. I’m a Secret Agent Book Turner Outer, but don’t tell anyone. 🙂 And I’ve already won a prize from you and so I don’t need to win another one, but I am about to put your post on Facebook. Heading over there now.

How exciting about the grand prize! I tweeted!! http://twitter.com/kellyberthelot

And I never tweet, so it’s a big deal.

This grand prize sounds WONDERFUL! Yay! I’m having so much fun following you around on you blog-hopping tour. I have to tell you that I laughed SO HARD at your answer the the Book Pixie question about Edward Cullen (She asked you some fantastic questions!). You’re so great!

Could you be anymore awesome?

Hopefully I’ll get to a store this Saturday!

Wow, that is quite the prize pack! I hope I win!

What an awesome grand prize pack!!
